    Updates.

    I put stock suspension on the wagon.

    I will do some adjusting on the Skunks and retry them this summer/spring, if I still don't like them I will sell them and try something else.

    Stock height.

    Stock height is wonderful for snowboarding.

    Also, Santa dropped off a new toy.

    Santa also dropped off a new red oem seat for the ruckus.

  • Love the bike there Bill. You must have been a good boy last year lol! Stock suspension is where it is at for me. If everything is tight and the bushings and shocks are good, it's not a bad ride at all. We are expecting some good snow here in Nashville on Saturday, so I am gearing up for some stock-height fun!

    Thanks, yeah dude, the Ruckus is a riot. I'm not sure why? It's a lot more fun to ride than it has the right to be...

    Stock height is good for now on the wag... Appearance wise- I just prefer a wagon with a respectable drop...

    Make sure to take pix of your snowy adventures!

    I found them on the Ebays. Install is kind of time-consuming, but very easy.

    Gah those are sooo tasty. I wish I could grab a set for my wagon just for the utility.

  • Good luck jon-wa-GO-van on finding ANY of the stuff that Bill finds. He SAYS it was EBAY, buuuutttt the hard truth is Bill has his own part-out shop in the Netherlands, which also serves as a global hoarding location for all NOS and related unobtainium Honda aftermarket. There, I said it Bill! The truth is OUT! Nice cargo unit though. Nothing less than I would expect from you...lol

  • "Installed some window bars. It was a real pain in the ass."

    Well, the NEXT time, and there will be a next time Bill, you will install the cargo box AND the jail bars AT THE SAME TIME. See, I just saved you a ton of time on your NEXT project Wagon. There, well I feel better....

    lol. I hope no next time... I was more curious about these bars than wanting or needing them... Like, I just wanted to see them.
  • Thanks Bill! The only use (and still not very useful) I have seen for these is some guy strung like 38,008 tree shaped air fresheners between the two bars. I think they are supposed to keep things from breaking the windows since they are offered on "the crappiest model of Wagon- the Wagovan/Civic Pro..." and those are like cargo vans in Japan.

    yeah yeah that sounds right... I think they are in some vw model's? and probably a lot of other cars as well.
  • Beautiful Wagon man. I’m still unicorn hunting myself.

    Beagle doors. I just wanted a few bits off of them... I was going to do an auto window swap, but am still contemplating that...

    In the mean time I will take the visors. The Rear visors showed up trashed, but the fronts were good.
    Luckily some dude on Facebook posted some miscellaneous visors for sale. So I was able to put together a complete set.

    41940390885_cf5d734c5b.jpg

    I cleaned them up

    The Mugens were sold. They are currently on a Honda Beat.

    The guy that bought them (Jake) is a really cool dude. He let me drive the Beat and then bought me a beer. A+ dude.

    Small nothing update, but good info for anyone thinking of adding rear wagovan jailbars to their wagon.... Advice: Don't.


    So I ran into an actual wagovan today at the salvage yard. Which is great because I had so many question with how the rear jail bars mount.

    All questions answered.

    The wagovan has a bonus bracket. Drill it out- I did not have a drill. I used a chisel and hammer.

    I removed excess metal at home, sprayed black, and re-installed. I also took the wagovan plastics from the wagovan at the yard...
