I recently traded my 95 S-10 extended cab for this 96 Civic LX. Other then the front damage, It's a sound car. I think I made off pretty well. What do you guys think?

Re: New member... new ride!

considering you had rust on the truck, yeah you made out pretty. just buy a used bumper on honda tech for like $120 or something and it should fix your front problem.

Re: New member... new ride!

If the Civic runs and has a good transmission, you made out GREAT bro. The rust on that S-10 is gonna get worse...fast. I would HIGHLY recommend doing the following things ASAP. First clay bar the car, then get some very light rubbing compound to LIGHTLY buff it out, then get a good synthetic wax/sealer (I use Meguiars Tech Wax 2.0). Your gonna spend about 50-70 bucks but it will look awesome and keep it from rusting as well. Take care of that thing man and you'll love it. Good trade and Welcome

Thanks. Yeah I plan on fixing the front end. This car is great mechanical condention. I plan on getting coil overs, 16's, audio system, header, exhaust, tent, body kit, and a custom paint job.

Well for one you should save a good chunk of change with gas, the 6th gens are solid cars. One simple thing you could do is give a good clay bar (paint looks dull in the pics)

Other than that good trade, looks like someone stole the front Honda emblem lol

Re: New member... new ride!

I love this car. I know for a fact Honda's are reliable. Great MPG too. I can't wait to start doing some work to it. I'm geeked! Can I bolt a 98-00 front bumper cover on here without making any other changes?
