Weekend Wrenching

I'd love to do more videos, but we gotta pay the bills some how! And to be real, those videos people seem to like to much, and wish they had for their build... don't pay the bills. That means things happen and most of the time if not all the time you end up having to fix it yourself. These days doing it yourself means people have leave the wife at home, roll up their sleeves, and turn some wrenches. The dread of what you might find after a serious engine failure is something we can all relate to. Typically we dream of it happening in the process of blowing somebodies doors off, sadly this was due to some heavy commuting in a 14 year old Honda, and a couple ill paying jobs causing the inability to keep up on regular maintenance. Whatever the case, this caused a bonding moment with a buddy that I seem to never write about here on AutoLife TV. His name is Joe "Backyard" Schneider, he owns a car that you either love or hate. It actually kinda flips all the "don't do it man" type of mods on their head and pushes your limits on what is "excepted" in the scene. A lot of people know of the car, yet it is completely ignored by certain "famed" characters in the industry. To the point were you literally see a picture of every car BUT his car. Pretty crazy… The truth is Joe, LIVES for wrenching on Hondas. This was our weekend fixing my queen's CRV.

The massive garage were his toys rest.

Our CRV that we have been absolutely driving the CRAP out of. I think I've posted pics of it off-roading and hopping over rocks on trails getting us to camp spots. Its got over 200K on it, and would never let us down. Guess you can only ask for so much… She got a little too hot, poor girl.

Joe moves so fast I can hardly capture him in focus.

Realized we forgot to change the oil pump on the new motor…UGH!

 Turns out, the old timing belt cover was junk, so we had to "adjust" the JDM one. I'm a surgeon with a saw or a dremel!

"Dude, all this space, why are we backed into this corner?"

Put in an OEM timing belt after seeing the old one. Those OEM Honda parts labels looked like candy spilled on the floor.

The Vaping Griffin had his merchandise all over the place. Please go find him on Facebook:

Tag teaming it!

Break time… swooped a shot of this before I went home for a few minutes.

Had a package from the homie MC Slick, of Honda Day and waiting for me when I got home, YEEEEEE!!!! :gig'n like Mac Dre: His "Yo Mad JDM" t-shirt for the lil mama.

"Street Racer" snap back for me. I called this one his Westcoast color way. I'm gonna feel like I'm in a N.W.A video while I'm rolling the wagon around town.
