Very nice upgrade.
I know about that irritation when it won't come out.
Once before, one bolt snapped in a bush, during lowering my sedan.
Had to be pressed out as well, man that really sucks when things snap...


I feel your pain, hate it when things don't quite work out...



I got a wheel alignment on Friday and man does the car feel great! Considering all it has is springs and shocks it handles very well and it's still a very comfy ride!

Bushes is one thing i'd never overlook again, worthwhile to any old car.

Nothing new as of yet.

I ordered a new blower motor resistor from Honda Japan, 2 weeks later and I'm still waiting for it Sad. My #1 fan setting doesnt work haha

Hoping to get the exhaust on it towards mid June.

Will also clean up the engine bay a bit around the same time, have a few tricks to get the bay looking cleaner.

Very tidy bay!

I got my blower motor resistor, for those of you with auto climate control I'd take a note of the part number. was $36 AUD delivered to my door from Japan.

Got it installed and it works a charm!

Nice that your blower works good again Smile

So I purchased a brand new facelift front bar to suit a hatch off a bloke from FB

What a epic fail that was, I didn't realise the hatch and sedan facelift bumpers varied... face palm

First signs of trouble, the lip wouldn't fit



I also managed to score a set of OEM headlight washer nozzles for a great price, time to reinstall the system Smile

I also learned about the differents between hatch and sedan front bumpers and lips.
I found a hatch lip at the yunkjard and maked it fit on my sedan.
I didn't fit perfectly but i looks good enough.

Is this the same lip you've got?

The problem isn't actually with the lip, the hatch front bar is actually shorter than the sedan one (on the sides) so it wouldn't even fit. The lip shows the difference between the lengths.

I may have a clean OEM front bar lined up so fingers crossed I get it.
