    Beautiful work. I especially love the interior, Honda themselves couldn't of done a better job if they had set out to make an "Accord Si"

    I can't found many flaws to the 6gen coupe, but if one thing the coupe should have come from factory and something i'm highly jaleous of it's the CL dash...But the original 6gen dash isn't bad and i like it too to be honest.

    Thanks man, OEM+ was my goal for the car outisde and in. For me the CL-S seats made the interior, they are so comfortable and have great bolstering. And they look cool.

    I always liked the dash until someone pointed out how similar it is to the Civic of similar years. I went and googled some pics, and I was like crap that's true. I mean it's not bad, but yeah the CL dash is soo much better.

    You mean the 6gen look the civic dash ? Just googled it and its indeed in the same idea, still the 6gen look way better especially with a nice 7" double din screen :) . As for the CL dash i like how everything is toward the driver and that rake down to the low console. It remind me a lot those great jdm oldschool supercars dashes like the NSX, 300ZX and Supra's.

    Replaced driver side rear wheel bearing assembly, race bearing stuck on spindle again but walked it off even easier than the passenger side. Pretty easy job once you've done it once. So nice when a job goes quick and smooth haha. Excited to drive the car again, though need to see if the battery is still good since it went flat again days ago. Guessing I let it sit dead too long...

    The Timken bearing assemblies actually had NTN on them.




    Replaced rear passenger wheel bearing assembly w/Timken assy (RockAuto) & reused spindle nut: 3/30/2019 (2xx,xxxmi)
    Replaced rear driver wheel bearing assembly w/Timken assy (RockAuto) & reused spindle nut: 4/19/2019 (2xx,xxxmi)

    Yes, some aftermarkets companies use NTN bearings for their parts as well which is good sign.
