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

Got a pair of V6Performance.net polished aluminum radiator holders.

Was an impulse buy, since it's an extremely rare find. Bought them from Roger (aznfunkyflip), and it was a pleasure doing business w/ him.



These were produced in limited number of sets, and only available at v6p forum's group-buy, back in '05 iirc. Member's could choose either blank or logo-etched ver. and mine is blank.



No pic of the current pieces atm, but will be polishing the surface to restore its gloss. Gonna make them shine like a mirror!

I looked long and hard at those, and the Comptech oil cap, but was able to resist haha. If I hadn't just bought the Mishimoto oil cap I'd have bought it. I may have bought the stays if I knew they were that nice!

I thought that was your pic at first lol, looking forward to pics of these on the car.

Oh, so it wasn't you who bought his Comptech oil cap then. I knew you just got the Mishimoto's, but I thought it was you. :thinking: The word 'rare' on his tittle caught my attention, and the next thing I realized... I was already paying him lol.


Yeah it's by courtesy of V6P haha. The actual pieces are in good shape, but they're in need for some polishing. (Say, they're looking like a good old plain Zippo lighter.) Hopefully, I'll be able to show you some good before-after pics on this. ;)

Damn nice find, I saw his FS thread aswell last week. Both CT oil cap and V6P rad are hella rare, I really wanted them back then. I remember when Storms bought his gold coupe, first thing he saw when he opened up his hood was a CT oil cap lol.

Yeah, big thanks to him. Must be hard to get them back then since they stopped producing, and everybody was keeping b/c of it..
Good days, Mr. Storms. ;)



Went to HARBOR FREIGHT TOOLS! :rock: (for some new rotary tool bits to polish the radiator brackets lol.)

Took a little while to move my butt and take some pics, but here's how they look on the car.
