    Here are what this car needs:

    Timing Belt.. the engine has over 200k on it, and the previous owner had it
    for the last 40k and doesn't know when it was changed last. How hard is it
    to do this myself (I usually work on all my own cars).

    Right headlight motor.. Left one works fine, right one is dead and has to
    be moved manually. Do you think this is a problem with the motor itself or
    something else?

    Power windows seem a little slow going up/down. Is this electrical or ?

    Any other tips you can give me about owning this car? It's a lot of fun to
    drive and has quite a bit of power, but i've never owned a Honda before.

    Whoops... two other things..

    The spedometer cable needs to be replaced too because the needle is jumping
    back and forth when driving.

    Also, it may need a new clutch cable soon as the cluth pedal is very stiff,
    and there is like a little 'bump' i feel while letting the clutch out.

    The speedo needle on that car is electronic. (there is a cable.... I don't
    know if a bad cable could cause the needle to jump though..)
