Friend of mine owns an upholestry shop. Most the time he'll only charge me for material but this is some stuff he had sitting around and only took him like 10-15 minutes to do

Awesome. Wish I knew someone that did interiors, would love a colored insert in my seats.

Awesome!

Now I suggest stock seats, with the stock center, recovered w/ the same junk as the armrest & foam padding.

keep fabric where there's sweat, make 'reinforcing' area's firm & durable...

Sorry, I'm sure it's off topic, just considering it to fix my OEM leather cracking in the center area ONLY.

Thanks everyone. I really want to get the interior finished because, I hate to say it but the stock Grey cloth is just ugly. I can appreciate our dashboards though, especially when comparing it to the 5th gen accords. I would like to get the door panels done soon but I'll have to see because I just don't have the time now that I got a new job. It's a pretty cool job for someone like me only being 17. I'm a lot attendant at a Ford dealership. I get to move around the new mustangs. I'm a bigger fan of the new f250s though.

Twice on the same day? Ugh hope they weren’t really bad. I was driving back from visiting my brother in another city, if this hole was where I live I would have gone back the next day, photographed it, and mailed it with a letter to the city telling them to fix it.

Luckily traffic had slowed a little, might have been worse if I hit it going faster.
Yep. Twice, when my wife (extra weight) was there.. I don't see any signs of damage, so it's fine.

When at night, I have a hard time seeing those things on the road, since my windshield is tinted. Sometimes, I have to leave an extra space between myself & a car in front, and PRAY.. Lol

(I wonder, if those super light-weight wheels, like RPF-1's, can survive those impacts.. :thinking:)

My parents actually sued before because they hit a pothole and bent a wheel. They photographed it and won. I think they got like $1000? This was quite some time ago. Still haven't fixed that pothole though...

Nice. Reminds me of my highschool summer jobs, I was a car prep for a rental company at the airport. I just did it so I could drive different cars all day. Only downside was it was me, another white guy, and like 18 Somalians haha.

Awesome. I was going to do this if I got a flat or bent rim.

Personally I think the state should have to pay for rust protection/damages since they choose to use salt on the roads here, and way too much of it I might add. This isn’t the northeast. :rolleyes:

Just got back from the junkyard. I saw that they got a new tl in so I went to check it to get the front seats but they were already gone. That's okay because they were tan and I need black. Either way I got the strut bar so that's pretty neat I guess.
