Default 2nd Gen Teg Summer Projects (91) - Input Requested

I have a 91 GS sedan that is now at 105k and seems to need work on a
number of systems. I have recently done the clutch, timing belt,
radiator, front and rear brakes (rear pads, front pads and rotors), new
tires...

So the car is becoming much more pleasant to drive but I feel it still
needs work in several areas:
--some of the side marker lights are cracked, can I put some sort of
glue behind these to seal the crack and then clean and dry the light?
I'd rather not have to pay for new lights when these are "intact"

--I need a new brake master cylinder, I've done this before but never on
a car with ABS. Is it different in any way?

--new shocks seem to be called for, the last tires had some cupping in
the rear, I'm thinking Tokico HPs. I did the front struts on a 86 Jetta,
but couldn't get to the rear. Is this difficult or needs special tools?

--tint is turning into fruit roll-up on the window look, what should I
look for in a tint shop and what should I expect to pay to do the whole
car? Metallic tint, and no ammonia is what I know so far.

--front motor mount is said to be in the early stages of going bad. The
dealer wanted $75 labor and $75 parts...that ratio makes me think I can
totally do this. Am I deluded?

--I have a Sony DIN style mp3 deck fitted in. I made a bracket to bolt
it to the front, and attempted to bond the tray below to the DIN sleeve.
Well, epoxy didn't seem to tolerate the heat extremes well. Is there an
adhesive that would have the qualities of tolerance of heat extremes,
bonds well to metal and metal/plastic (well at this point there will
probably also be some epoxy left in there too *sigh*). Or is there a way
better way to do what I'm trying to do. The install kit I got had a new
faceplate but I would like to keep the tray under the radio.

On the dreaming front...B18C5, Recaros, 16" rims, roll bar, and lots of
yellow .

Thanks for reading

One way to find a good installer is to ask the local Acura dealer
who they use. No dealer wants to hear a tint job complaint from
a customer who has spent $30-40K on a car.

When I replaced the factory radio a few years ago I reused the clip which
fastened the factory unit to the tray. I had to gerryrig it a bit to fit
the new receiver, but it's held up fine.

Check out the Teg Tips section of g2ic.com for lots of information
about 2nd generation Integras.

American International makes an install kit that has the tray. That's what I
put in my Integra.

Hmm, I find a bunch of references to that company, but no source for my
car. Do you recall where you got your install kit from?

I got it at Canadian Tire:

http://www.canadiantire.ca/assortmen...UCT%3C%3Eprd_i
d=845524441889463&FOLDER%3C%3EbrowsePath=253437430 2192103&FOLDER%3C%3Ebrowse
Path=2534374302193489&FOLDER%3C%3EbrowsePath=25343 74302193493&FOLDER%3C%3Efo
lder_id=2534374302193493&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=14 08474395348027&bmUID=10573
84309267

It's the "Imports" kit. It contains a number of different pieces that you
snap together depending on the car you have. You can use the pocket or just
a flat strip of plastic.

Here's another link I found that looks like a more specific kit:

I went to the Acura Integra section of their site and saw that they sell
different cams, port cylinder heads... I didn't see the "bull frog
package" that you're referring to. Do I need to give them a call?

When you say 55 more HP than VTEC are you talking about 55 more than now
(130+55) or more than the VTEC B18B (160)? No way could it be more than
the 200 or so of the B18C?!?
