Second times eh. That's tough.. Shinobi has tremendous saga for sure.

Cleaned the outer windshield w/ water & news papers ← (to remove an oil film/grease), then applied RainX Glass Cleaner. Couldn't be happier when it started raining.

Replaced my 20-year-old sprayer with this.






It became a little easier to wash, but I wish it was a little bit more powerful than it is.

Got a Neuspeed front strut tower bar last week, and finally had it installed today.




Gave me noticeable difference in less body roll. Became easier to drive straight on freeways. Completely eliminated a squeaking noise between a pillar and dash. Can't be happier. Big thanks to Bradley (ChargerFan17) for selling me this.

Such a good looking strut bar. You didn't install it yourself?

Looking great and you going to try to polish your firewall support bars to match?

Thanks. Yours, too haha.

No I didn't (couldn't). Well, I wasn't going to explain, but since you asked lol. I was going to install it, but one of the bolts top head got stripped.. It turned, and I thought it became loose, but it didn't and I kept turning w/o knowing I was stripping the head... Should have used a 6-point socket instead of 12 point..

So, I had to get an oem replacement, and had a shop removed the bolt. I wanted to have a service at this place where they specialize working w/ aftermarket parts, and the cool thing was, the owner turned out to be my high school friend's cousin. Found a reputable place.

Thanks man. I had no choice of getting either black / polish, but I'm glad I got the polished one. Well, my oem support bars will be replaced w/ a TL bar at one point, so they'll be gone. I think I'll stay w/ black even I get the TL bar tho. Idk yet, but maybe I might have it polished.



Thanks for the comments, gentlemen.

Thanks, Brad. GL with the hunting game. Yeah, you might be right. Besides, I heard that polishing is kinda pita to keep them look good, especially for a person like me.

Re: Sil2DrV6's 2002 Accord Coupe EX-L V6

Found this on ebay. License Plate Relocation Brackets





Picked up the item, and it turns out to be an aftermarket JDM item LOL.


The illustrations "look like" they are pretty self explanatory though.



Here is how it looks. (Sry, the plate cover is worn out pretty bad).



Was kinda hoping for the plate to be located entirely by the lower grille, like the yellow S2000 shown above, but it was hitting my bumper lip, so I decided to mount the bottom of the plate.I don't mind this location since it's not hitting my bumper cover at all.



All I wanted was to be able to mount my plate in the center of my bumper/lower grille w/o drilling holes, so I have no complaints. It was raining so I couldn't take the over all figure, but I'll post it eventually.





Thanks for checking it out.

Here is the overall look with the plate.


I really shouldn't be using the smoked front license plate cover, but oh well at least my plate is there from now on.

Edit:
**Note** (It won't be installed like this by simply following the illustration. I didn't want to drill any holes, so I played around w/ the structure for a while, and ended up reversing the use of the base brackets by switching them out between left and right. The screw holes on the USDM plates were too narrow to dock with the base brackets, when utilizing the original OEM screw holes as the base.)
