Then a new shifter boot. 2016 has been a good car project year!

Re: What did you do to your civic today?

Dude, that plastic coat if it is on the car for years, forget peeling it off.
I restored a 92 hatch that was sprayed with that , and I had to chem strip it....

Not wanting to sound negative, just sayn.

Re: What did you do to your civic today?

The 3m wrap is a killer sub to painting a car and it will come off after years of being on the car. For the after market its the next greatest thing and it really is.

Re: What did you do to your civic today?

Made a lip and a front wing sat morning/afternoon.

Re: What did you do to your civic today?

sheeesh, streak of bad luck...
just because i have a 3 month travel schedule, a lot happened...
1) SRS light came up - just checked today (got a scanner that reads SRS codes - why not? Seat belt buckle.... the traditional. I might just bundle with airbag and do it in dealer when travel is done...

2) it's emission time... darned oil burning is causing P0420 problems... and I need reset every once in a while... forgot i had reset in the morning and went to do emission... bam! fail for not ready...

3) somebody hit my rear bumper when it was parked, but I don't even know where they hit (too much rain here down south...). Just hit the scrapyard and got a "new" one out of a LX - should i just keep the LX badge?







darned yard was ginormous... and they take you to find the car, and they pull it out on the spot - took 40 minutes to find the darned car in the outer side of the yard, some 300 - 400 yards down to the end...

Re: What did you do to your civic today?

hope yours get better... saw too many at the scrap yard today.... but a T-bone means write-off most of the cases...

Re: What did you do to your civic today?

Last week I bought 4 brand new tires. This week, after a trip to a local bone yard, I replaced my rear view mirror, sun visors, and I just installed my "new" cluster panel. Now I has a tach- YAY!
