    Bought a CR-V

    I finished another fender: I think I'm going to take all the trim and door handles off the doors before I do them, then take the trim and spare tire and spare tire carrier thing off the rear before doing the rear gate. I think I may have to remove the roof rack to do the roof, we'll see...

    Bought a CR-V

    Clogged rain gutter under the cowl. I scoped it, just need to take off the plastic wiper cowl to get to it.

    Bought a CR-V

    I got bored. Again. Did some of the hood to see if it made a difference. I think it did. Then, I moved on to the fender. And after: I think I'm gonna do the rest of the car with this polishing compound. :D

    Bought a CR-V

    American Honda says 1000lbs. UK Honda says 1300lbs unbraked and 2600lbs braked. My trailer is rated at 1500lbs (weighs 265lbs) and unbraked, so I'm not worried. I'm certainly not going to be rolling into the dump at 9980 in this, lol. I still haven't completely decided to get rid of the...

    Bought a CR-V

    Went to a carwash today. Got the passenger footwell wet. *Sigh* so I'm gonna have to figure that out. On the plus side, the UltraGauge is working well, and the long term fuel trim is getting back to normal with the new spark plugs. And, the new engine mounts are here, for whenever I get around...

    I have one in my CR-Z, it's an original one from 2010 though.

    Bought a CR-V

    I went over the plastic with ceramic coating again, this time letting it actually soak in. I could tell the spots where I laid it on thick and the spots where I just lightly wiped, because the rain yesterday kinda wore it off. So far, I've put about 50ml on the plastic. So, without further...

    Bought a CR-V

    This is what I used. It rained today, and it doesn't look as good, but I read that the plastics "soak" this in, and often times need multiple applications. So when it dries up I'll have another go at it. All of the Chinese ceramic coatings are probably the same, but something more expensive may...

    Bought a CR-V

    I cleaned the bumpers, and did some ceramic coating to them. They look really nice now. Here's in the process of doing it: Steps to do this: Wash panel. Use alcohol and a brush or microfiber towel and scrub panel. Let dry. Wipe on ceramic coating. Done. Had I thought it was going to be...

    p06 to P28 question

    I've converted a bunch of p06 ECUs to a p28 ECU. Just make sure you're replacing the 20+ year old capacitors at the same time. Xenocron is a good seller, but he's probably not at the shop for a while.
