Re: What'd you do to your accord today?

Started to wrap my 4 cylinder header and downpipe in Dei exhaust wrap. Well it's a lil more tricky than you might think. Starting out can be a pain, making sure you get it tight as possible, and feeding it thru every time you wrap it over. The exhuast wrap flat wire ties IMO suck. I could never seem to get it tight enough were it couldn't be moved, and pulling it taught is almost impossible cause it just want to pull in a circle. Not to mention how easy it is for the wrap to srart fraying once you cut it. Need to order more ties cause i f'ed up so many times.

Meh, it looks alright. After I install my 10mm spacers it'll look a lot better. Ichiba sent me the wrong extended studs so I have to wait for the replacements to get here.

Re: What'd you do to your accord today?

what did i do today? well lets see

- heard a weird whistlieing sound from my hood, opened it up to reveal a crack in my week old AEM intake,
-backed into a pole that came out of no where (bumper was just redone 2 months ago)
-got mad at myself for hitting the pole, so i slammed my door and broke the lock (the pillar that slides up and down)

it gets better =]

-got a quote from the body shop at 650$ to repaint f&rear bumper and hood,
-AEM is sending me a brand new intake
-fixed the lock and DIYed it to gloss black
-utilized the back seat to relieve some stress
-got my spark plugs and shift boot in the mail!

Re: What'd you do to your accord today?

question, why were your windows rolled down in the first place?

there be talk of strange folk abroad, probably ones wanting to steal from your car.
