    Ah-ha!



    Woah. o_O

    I ended up buying the Honda I borrowed from my neighbor so long. Spent only stimulus and tax return monies - don't got nothin in it. A ten gallon tank of gas each week. /shrug :shrug:

    Remember when Franklin and I drove to Texas to buy Mike's seats?
    They fixed my shoulder in ONE shift and then "lifetime warranty" radiator bullshit number two in six weeks failed and the Blazer 4x4 got parked.
    Again.
    Gets old. :(
    Gotta be gettin close to fixed?

    Instantly back into an even worse seat n the Civic.
    Must.fix.

    2009 1.8 I4 with 5 speed auto. 160k .4 wheel disc EX Coupe model. Aluminum factory 16s spray bombed flat black by the kid PO bought it from.
    Looks like crap but it's just a work car?
    I'm sittin on bullshit though and it sucks.
    :(
    Bought steel 15s @$20 each with hubcaps :) lol...keepin it real then asked the wheel shop how much to paint them?
    $600 he says.
    o_O
    Ok? Whatever.
    Get fvcked huh?

    This week LaFawnduh the Honda got some love. Drain and fill transmission service with Valvoline for imports. This is the third drain and fill EYE have done to it in the year point five ive known the car. It's about 1.3 quarts.
    Was pretty shady but it's much more gooder now.
    Also drained the 80% water out of the new radiator , it got drain and fill service too
    !
    I think I had air in the cooling system. I'll find out this weekend if air im the cooling system was creating a felt surge at speed.
    100% of this car's cooling system is brand.new. - but neighbor paid for it with my help ;)
    Needs new headlights. His taste is shit.. These aftermarket led halo fags suck my dick plus they're non-adjustable.
    I unplugged the halo lights lol. They had little makeup bedazzles and i junked them too. Maybe only the headlights will be tolerable but they're still tacky lookin.

    Bye!
    Fags.
    U need to go away.

    $220 i think he paid for that trash. Im goin back to stock with extra-visions?
    :rolleyes:


    Last week I changed the oil and filled the Power steering. It has a very slow leak? Dunno. I added. just today. Weird.

    PO neighbor was runnin a bullshit flat black bombed aftermarket chrome grille that I was quick to throw away. Made room for this METAL, CHROME, replacement - which is more my style. :waytogo:
    Between the crappy wheels and the crappy grille + factory exerything? Add millions of paint chips.. Left a lot of room for improvement!

    20210429_162416.jpg

    It's all tip top under there. This engine has a timing chain! 1.8 veeteck bb
    I replaced at 150k mile the wrong platinum plugs with regular resistor plug and dropped a knock off K&N in the filter box. Threw away all of the silencer tubing..back and forth across the engine bay bullshit nothing junk.
    Cut off the exhaust resonator and swapped it for a 2 inch Cherry Bomb brand actual M-80 glasspack muffler AND THEN i cut off the stock muff and changed a Cherry Bomb brand 2 inch Turbo Muffler in it's spot. Tucked it up tight and put the factory (resonator) EX only tip back on it.

    Sounds fucking dope.
    Even kinda looks cool. Cool-er.
    (Didn't take much)

    It gets about 25 mpg with the AC on.
    That's pretty cool....lol get it ..I have a TON of ass time in this car and it's fvcking uncomfortable. To the extreme.

    I started readin the googles until I found solution.
    This week I swapped a 2009 sedan seat in place of my 2009 coupe seat. Bolt. In.
    No airbag light.

    Look.
    Pix!

    20210426_143827.jpg

    100k mile Sedan on the left, 160k mile Coupe seat at right.

    20210426_152134.jpg

    See the side bolsters? They don't give. It-s prolly okay if you're 5'5" and 150 but im 6'0" and 210. My shoulders are much wider than that!! I'm an American and I eat beef, not rice.
    MWeird.back and forst across the bay for nothing. Junk.
    Has to buy a one fat-boy seat just to be cool.

    20210426_152225.jpg

    Note the extra piece of bolster at shoulder height. Makes me want murder.

    $100 and a trip to the car warsh. Worth it by the time I got to the end of the block, just like in the Blazer. :)

    It sits like an entirely different car now! Winning!

    Two mufflers / one pipe?

    20210429_183530.jpg
    Needs 666 tag :(
    Painted to match/ bolt in / SI spoiler?
    130!?
    Delivered?!

    Tempnnnnggg.... but No.
    :nono:

    I don't think so...Homey don't play dat.





    20210429_183125.jpg

    Yes. Sounds.Fucking.Dope!
    s-l400.jpg

    That's the secret.
    The 4 cylinder secret.
    Because I love you.

    :cool:

    Im gonna put new rubbers on lay-away next week. Same size only 15s not 16s. Should be good for an EASY TWO LENGTHS in the quarter versus the same tires on 16s.
    Believe it.
    Two car lengths EASY.
    205/55/16 vs 205/55/15


    Gonna spray bomb the black honda steel wheels - Aluminum color!

    Go figure!

    Ready?
    FIGHT!



    Too easy :crazy:

    I fought with me long and hard over white letter tires okay? I don't need that shit from you too. The smallest ones are too wide! :(
    I can't run 225s alright? It's a work car - okay? :D

    It'll mash the eff out though - don't play. :mad:
    The Civic coupe sits exactly one inch lower than the sedan and im already goin to 15...I think 225/50/15s is too extreme. Would be badass yeah but

    Look, everything was on the table upon purchase. She's doin pretty good because 50 series tires ain't happenin.:nono:
    Please know I want that - but it's a bad idea.

    20210429_191158.jpg

    I bought a new kitchen sink that is perfect for stuff like ? Washing 15 inch wheels. ;)
    You'll love it, next week!

    $2000 purchase price
    $100 in exhaust parts
    $100 exhaust install
    $100 wheels and grille
    $100 new/used 100k mile seat
    $100 tune up parts and fluids

    Bout $2500 total, as-is.
    I'll prolly spend $300 painting the wheels with new tires. Spent $80 on a factory subwoofer that was MIA (in the mail).
    Maybe i'll be good at 3 grand worth.


    I've got way more than that worth out of it already. Really, it should be paying ME to drive it. :)

    Lololo...okay bro...I listened to it and the Honda Civic song was a effing cool jam.





    Y'all help me out. What would YOU DO, Reader?
    Spray them and forget about it orr?? If I touch those. Hubcap spots do you think i'll make it worse? How to avoid making them worse besides painting over them?
    IF I sand it'll make scratches where none are present. Yes?

    Lookit a "double wide" sink - no divider and 9 inches deep BB.
    Bday present score! :headbang:

    I bought 2x P205/55/R15 today.
    That is NOT a common size.
    Research includes " what ever happened to honda 14s?" Phased out in Hondas at the death of the carburetor. They were only ever 4 lug. Honda went 5 lug in the early mid 90s.
    There is an aluminum accord 15 I lust for but not enough to buy I guess. :(
    Optional size was 195/65/15... No. Youve missed the point gawddamnit. Sell me some fucking 205/55/15s. I understand nobody else wants that. Grr. :mad:
    Long story is that you can get whatever you can afford I guess. How bad do you want?
    $100 each. :(

    It was almost a bad scene me arguing with the kids in Discount..freaking $200 a pair. :(
    I only bought two LOL we spoke of layaway.

    Spray them for cheap until you can ( want ) to spring for the ones you want.

    BTW, 100 bux a tire seems cheap, but I am used to 160 plus a tire ( 33's) ...

    :p

    Those spots are where the paint is baked thin and they are starting to surface rust even with the super thin layer of (porous) paint there. The factory wheel paint doesn't hold up well to UV rays. Use a red scotchbrite pad to scuff up the surface real well and apply new paint.

    Until I found out the wheel place wanted $600 for a paint job, I was 100% down to roll these steels but they can't be black and look like shit. I bet good money 15s will produce the results i'm after and if that's the case, yeah i'll prolly spring for the 03-07 Accord wheels at about $125 each :(
    These steels can be aluminum colored and look like shit, I prefer that in the meanwhile.

    I think these are cool for a 15x6 :shrug: that would look to be at home
    This one is $80+ship. Whatever happens it sure as hell wont be any worse than what's goin on right now... the 16s used to be alright for stocks but whatever. :893Chainsaw-Smilie-

    I dont got any red pads. I even went to the grocery store they had green or blue. The greens don't seem extra suck do you think green is good enough Cubo? I bought time until tomorrow. Give one a "shot" later.
    I'll keep lookin.
