Icon5 Wires cut, plugs not connected, and bolts missing

I REALLY need some help! Yesterday I was working on my 92 lude and took pics of everything that I saw was wrong with it so far...lol. The person I bought it from cut a lot of wires, didn't connect all the plugs, and it's missing some things(I know he took out the power steering, the windshield wiper reservoir, and the a/c unit). PRETTY PLEASE..look at my Prelude pics in my profile...they will explain everything. They are under...."What a Mess" album.
I extremely hope someone will be able to help me out on these pics because this is a little overwhelming lol.
Thank you so very much for all your help in advance!!!

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Wires cut, plugs not connected, and bolts missing

Yeah, looks like the dropbox has been disabled. Here is an alternate link for the 4G manual http://downloads.hondatech.info/Auto...e%20Manual.zip

Here are a few thoughts on the pics you took. Sorry if they're not that helpful since I'm doing this from memory and using a JDM H22 as reference.

Pic #1: NFI, there are tonnes of spare plugs in our cars for factory options that aren't fitted. Those ones don't look familiar though. If everything in your console works then don't worry.
Pic #2: looks like a relay for something but definitely after-market. Trace where the wires go and that'll tell you what it does.
Pic #3: That is just a drain hose for your headlight, it doesn't connect to anything.
Pic #4: I can't tell where this is. It looks like it's down where your battery should be, if so then that is just a cable holder that mounts on to the stock battery tray.
Pic #5: Unless I'm mistaken, the "tank" on the right is the starter motor, the one on the left is the ignition coil. The bolt hole looks like another mount for something that has been taken out.
Pic #6: Apart from the accelerator cable having slipped out of the bracket in the top left of the pic it looks ok.
Pic #7: Rusty not orange, looks like a hose clamp.
Pic #8: They're plugs, not bolt holes. Notice the hexagonal shape in the hole? These can be removed with an allen key, but don't.
Pic #9: I suspect this is the vacuum line that feeds the stock air box resonator, when the short ram went in this line would have been ripped out. Find a way to plug that line as it would be a vacuum leak.
Pic #10: I'll have to double check this one. The power steering reservoir should be around this area and so should an EGR solenoid. I think the hard line in the middle of the photo is one of the power steering lines. Those relays are for the AC compressor, the headlight on that side of the car, and the condenser fan relay.
Pic #11: Looks like a fog light plug to me. It could also be the plug for the AC compressor or the condenser fan though. It's hard to tell without knowing the colour of the wires.
Pic #12: Could possibly be for the intake control solenoid valve, if so then it would have been taken out with the resonator. Does the black wire have a yellow stripe?
Pic #13: What does it matter? If fluid, air or smoke doesn't piss out then it doesn't need plugging.
Pic #14: Doesn't look like a NOS pipe, it looks like the PS high pressure line. Not sure why it's been poked out into the fender though.
Pic #15: Honda wouldn't have run a wire with no protection outside of a loom, and they don't use solid purple as one of their standard colours, so it's something after-market. If it's melted then it's carrying way too much current for the application.
Pic #16: Based on the location I'd say it's for the EGR lift valve. Once again without any good reference on where exactly the photo was taken or any clue what colour the wires are I can't say for sure. Is the EGR valve in there or has it been plugged?
Pic #17: Fuel filter. Just find some bolts and put them in. Just about every random bolt in the engine bay is the same size so just pull one out from somewhere else, test it in the hole, then run down to your local auto parts store and get some more.
Pic #18: That's your brake master cylinder. For whatever reason the middle hole is not used for anything. Yours looks fine, and quite new actually.
Pic #19: The missing bolts are for the accelerator cable retention brackets on a RHD car, yours does not need them.
Pic #20: Is that the drivers side engine mount? If so then there should be a bolt on the rear side (looks like there is) and a stud that pokes up off the engine block and a nut goes down over it. Looks like somebody broke it off at some point. I think it's a 12mm x 60mm bolt with a 12x1.25mm thread, Honda part no. 90041-PT0-000. You'll need to see if it has actually been broken off though as you might need to drill it out. It might be possible to just use an appropriate sized bolt though, I'm guessing it is just a stud to align everything properly when putting the engine in.
Pic #21: That's where your PS pump should be, the alternator should be below that and the AC goes under that.
Pic #22: They are your AC lines, one feed and one return to the evaporator under the dash.
Pic #23: It's a vent for the transmission. There should be a tiny rubber bung that goes over it but they usually go missing at some stage. If you're really worried about debris dropping down that tiny hole then you can buy a new one from Honda, part no. 21396-PX5-000
Pic #24: Once again, these look like the PS lines. I'm guessing whoever deleted the PS pump and reservoir didn't bother looping the lines properly and just jammed the open lines out the fender. I'd be looking at either reinstating the PS or look at some how-to's and do a proper PS delete.
Pic #25: This is the intake control vacuum tank, once again part of the stock air intake resonator system. With the short ram you can leave it out.
Pic #26 & #27: Hey, you have a Skunk2 intake manifold. These lines are part of the EVAP system I believe, It's very bad news for these to be disconnected. The other hard line there is for the MAP sensor, if this is disconnected then your motor will not run. I suspect one of the lines has been rerouted when the new intake went on.
Pic #28: I think this line is for the cruise control actuator. As per #9, plug it.
Pic #29: Yeah, IDK what this is either. Mine doesn't have one.
Pic #30: As mentioned this is the left engine mount. The wire is there to ground the engine to the body, the wire should go from the rocker cover (bolt hole shown in #20) to the mount then to the chassis. It's obviously been busted at some point and poorly repaired, then busted again. Fix this ASAP as it would be causing a whole manner of issues.
Pic #31: I still don't know what's going on here. I'll double check against mine when I get a chance but that bracket doesn't look familiar.

In reference to picture #17. The bolts for the clamp are 10mm. you only need two of them

Re: Wires cut, plugs not connected, and bolts missing

Picture 1 should be for your cig lighter. Those two plugs should go together if I am correct in placement from where your picture is taken.
