Removed the electronics & the exhaust

dropped the drivetrain, or more accurately, lifted the body off it

cut off the remnants of the water pipe tunnel & removed the damaged water pipes

Made a replacement (removable ) cover from the cover cut from my parts car

primed, caulked & painted the inner tunnel

Fixed the broken AC compressor ear

pulled the head off today

pretty sure the reason for the HG leak lies with the liners there is a discernible ridge between 4&3 and 3&2 - I can feel it with my fingernail, so must be at least .005"

The block was decked 600 miles ago when I had the bore & hone to take care of the rust in #4 cylinder.

my whiteblock decking for comparison - pretty sure the Honda block should be equally flat
