Ok, well if your repainting the engine bay, use a degreaser, or turps then meths, DON'T use WD40.

Went to get the OEM exhaust fixed today as it had two small cracks and the tail pipe was almost falling off due to previously having a different tip put on. So I took it to a place I found on Google, took him 10minutes and only cost me $40 (around £25). Pretty happy TBH. It could do with a tweek which he said he would do no worries anyway.
Still need a longer rubber hanger for the right side as it sits higher than the other side by around 20mm.

I gave it a clean, and a quick spray with some $3 aluminium paint from Bunnings (DIY store). I managed to spray three backboxes with it. :D

Got round to fitting the black centre console too...

It's amazing how much like 4G's these are, the more I fiddle with it.

I won't be getting the RNR's anymore. The guy had the centres machined to fit over a bigger centre bore, and so that put me off. Plus I can't really afford it and I quite like the EK fan blades.

My JDM mats arrived....

They are actually the second set I've bought... the first were for a 4dr and didn't fit very well.

Yeah it's great, although it does rain often, usually at night. Similar weather to the south UK but hotter in the summer, and no snow, but big fucking hail stones. The car has a few dings on the roof. :/



Been giving it some beans the past few days home from work under a tunnel, sounds pretty sweet... 8)

So, I'm working on a farm.

Image

It's a good laugh, but the Integra is never clean, and is getting pushed to the limits at times.


When it's wet, the drive through the farm (2km's) is very muddy, sometimes I have to drive through a field (already has tracks), but they're usually covered in dead tomato plants and/or hay. Yesterday was a nightmare.

I got stuck three times in a 350m track. The mud is basically clay, and it soon collects in the rear arches (mudflaps don't help the situation). We dug it all out each time which took about an hour.

This is after I managed to get out, which isn't as bad as it was spinning up through the paddock...

hahaha I haven't had to get towed yet. When the mud/clay gets in the arches like that, the wheels literally don't move.


Opened my sunroof to find this the other day... :(
