What, What? Civic In The Butt
« on: September 30, 2016, 06:50:14 PM »

I bought this thing last November. Let's go over what's going on with it.

It looked like shit when I first bought it for $700 from some rando who used it for transporting herself to her dead-end retail job before her and her husband found out about the miracle of financing a new Kia


New corner markers because the passenger side was cracked, check out that hail damage:


I also replaced the shocks with an $80 set of DC Integra shocks I bought from a dude that I found who lived near my house.

The radio doesn't work because Honda soldered the fucking fuse in:


Check out how bent the old suspension was, the tire looks like a Stegosaurus:


Somehow my tail lights are rusty:



Why did I buy new tires, the fucking Canadian Tire morons didn't do them right and they leak like crazy


But it drives places


and I painted the wing mirrors


and I put a dead pedal in it


then the ECU died so i was like "oh shit" and had to get the thing towed home

I bought this ECU to get me around until then, believe it or not it wasn't chipped


then I recapped the original P06 ECU (fucking C14) so now it runs great

then I bought three sets of 13" winter tires for $9.64 a tire on warehouse clearout so I am going to stud them and ice race this bitch

and that's the story of my Honda

I miss my EG coupe more than any of the many, many cars I have owned. I replaced the headgasket, then sold it after the heater core started misting.

I am sort of worried about my D15 exploding because it means I will have to hurry up and finish fixing up the cheap-shit D16Y8 turbo I bought from some other rando.

That's a whole other thread, though.
