    Tyre pressure

    Hi i did manage to get one example from my own car cause the splash guard uses the same clips and looks exatly like the ones you Said, 'spire clips". I took pictures of the clips and the bumper holes, where these clips Will attach to, maybe it will help someone else. Gonna try to find them locally in an hardware store if not maybe i have to go with NUTS and bolts with some washers but i sure prefer the clips if i can find them. Thanks

    car headliner/door card upholstery

    Hi folks i have bought rover 400 door cards because mine are sagging and the back one is damaged, i like the rover ones better, because they have the trim all around the interior, and i like the look of it, just might wrap the trim but not sure in what color/effect would suit best on the long run. Now i wanted opinions on what color/type of fabric will suit best for my door cards, later ill be doing the headliner too but for now its just the doors.pics would be awesome Also opinion in which wrap should be used for the trim, if anybody has some custom interior i would love to see pictures. Mb6 has carbon inserts, anyone can show me how it is the look? i wonder if it will make the car fill too dark inside with the carbon...i got this new projects but i really need second opinions cause they will be somewhat permanent changes. be safe, peace out

    Hi there i believe the rose colour is from the other car, and it may be possible to remove it polishing, had the same but in the back and i was able to use elbow grease and removed it all, just the dent remained there. Its a bummer to arrive at your car and give him that look... then to realize it is "hurt"... is painful i feel for you mate.

    Tyre pressure

    Dave yes it helped enlightenment wise thanks sorry for mention the somewhat liberty we now enjoy in Portugal forgetting completely the majority of people here are from Britain... my bad!but then you will be there soon! Never heard about that new fuel, i believe in Portugal we don't have it but i can be wrong, maybe its from the American market and has been imported?just a guess Just bought an si oem front splitter or skirt not sure wich is correct , just to find out it needs some kind of special clips or screws that i wasn't aware of and i dont even know what to look for cause i have no ideia how they are. Already tried to google and ebay it, but again i dont know what i really need so its a bummer to find hehe. Any help in enlighten me about those elusive clips is much appreciated. be safe, be gentle peace out

    Tyre pressure

    Hi folks everyone deconfined and happier? I want to ask which type of gasoline was recommended by honda at the time the car was put together...i wonder if its 95 octane or 98... or doesnt hurt using any of these? Another thing, please tell me the weight of the aerodeck. thanks in advance. Peace out.

    Ok i get it, the most important thing in calculating a tyre pressure is the weight of the car not the wheels. thanks dr.broon
  10. Hi Craig that looks sick more like a race car... is not used has a daily driver i suppose... or is it? for sure extra points for originality
  11. i see your car is the same has mine just has the vti lip...my bad! Forgot to mention another thing i did, you can paint the grill any color, i painted mine black but used plasti dip in case i want to change the look back for stock.I didn't painted the symbol i like the chrome. what you mean the door is weak? you can change the pin and busings of the hinge i will do that somewhere in the future cause my drivers door is sagging just a bit and i already diagnose a bad bottom bushing. peace out

  13. Hi TheAce i have one just like yours same colour and i love it yours is a VTI while mine is i LS Nice clean looking car you have there you will be in love with it im shure I am from Portugal too and i reckon is not that easy to get parts, i got my headlights painted, i bought the butyl rubber(from ebay) to close the headlight after painted, but RTV silicone works too,not a hard job to do, just used an hairdryer to pry it open. By the way what size rims you have? i needed to know the tyre pressure for my 175/65/r14 yours look 15" Be safe

    Tyre pressure

    Hi there i tried to find the info for my tyre pressure everywhere but i get different opinions. At the tyre shop they said should be 2.5 BAR FRONT AND REAR, on the internet i found saying should be 2.0 bar front and 1.8-2.0 rear. My car has 14" rims and the tyre size is 175/65/R14 I would love to know the pressure honda recommended when the car was put together buu my car as already been painted and i have no sticker on door jam so i´m lost Also wanted to ask if our MB civics have rear wheel covers on the inside wheel arc facing back, cause my rear left wheel arc seems to have a plastic cover but on the other side doesn´t, not sure where i can get one or even if its missing or not. Thanks in advance
