Damn i hit a barrier head on at 4kph when I gave way to an incoming car. Didnt notice the barrier it was so low i was too close to notice it and it's not painted and was raining so hard! Damn!
I already realigned the front chassis, my bumper bulged a bit on the right side because the chassis was push in a bit. Now it's a lot better, but the bumper has lots of scratches in front.
I'm just waiting for the repair set i bought at Amazon so I can practice my painting and repair skills if I have any...

Hello, this one's this >> https://www.tein.co.jp/e/products/super_compact.php
Super Compact? Lower settings are low, cant fit my fingers between the front tire and fender.
Rear also seats low but I left just 1cm from the lowest settings.

None so far, I always check the wheel wells and fenders of any signs of rubbing. I just find it a bit hard for my liking, but it's not too hard, it's livable daily! I think I'll set it up 1cm higher in front for when I have my wife and kid and old dad just so I can soften the damp a bit more. It's set to 6 of 16 clicks, 16 as the softest. Best one so far is at 12 clicks, i'll try it with the current set and see if it rubs when going over humps and potholes.

So remember I hit a barrier? It left an ugly scar on my bumper. I fixed it coz everyone who will see my car will know i suck! lol
Here's the result of my first time bumper repair. It wasnt perfect but 99% better than before!



Prep

Sanding

After Sanding

Putty, I actually think I didnt have to do this, scratches arent deep.

I shouldve used just a little amount, took me a while to sand it down.

Base Coat

Clear Coat

Finished Product after compound and wax!

Installed my Spoon Sports rearview mirror. I bought a new OEM rearview mirror for this install considering their (low) price. This way I can swap back to the original rearview mirror if I ever need to without any worries.

It looks like it had never been scratched before. Great job!

Thanks! Just goes to show that anyone can do it!

I now have the courage to do my spoiler next. I just ordered one from Ebay USDM Spoiler unpainted abs. I saw some fit before and after installing a spoiler, and I just feel like my fit looks like it's not wearing pants without a spoiler.
Drill, Paint, Install next!

I did a lot of maintenance this weekend, replace a lot of things, nothing wrong with those parts, I just want a piece of mind
a. Replace Primary O2 Sensor:






b. Replace EGR Valve:






c: Replace all 4 Coils (and the bolts that hold the coils) and of course Spark Plugs:




d. Replace MAP Sensor (and new screw):





e. Replace MAF Sensor:





f. Replace the Rubber Gasket from the Mugen CR-Z Airbox to the throttle body:



g. Replace the K&N Air Filter in the Mugen CR-Z Airbox to My Spare Unit while this dirty unit will be cleaned and re oiled ready for next swap:




h. Replace the brake switch and the brake pedal:




i. Replace Front Brake Pads with EBC Yellow Brake Pads, this is a temporary solution for the next 15,000 miles until I buy a brand new Brembo Type 3 Rotor with Ferodo DS-2500 pads,
because the current Brembo Rotor still have lots of life on it (still very thick) although it's Type 3 slot pattern already almost gone
Well, not bad considering that this is the first time I have to change this Brembo (model FM-1000 by Ferodo) Front Pads after almost 80k miles of "passionate" daily driving vs 4 pads (well, to be precise it was 3.5 pads, 1 original Honda Pads and 2.5 EBC Green Pads) change during the first 30k miles while using stock front brakes caliper

I mounted my Advans on my GE. I still need to lower the car but I just wanted to get off my snow tires ASAP.

Even with the exaggerated wheel gap from the slightly shorter sidewall & more aggressive offset I can tell it will look really great at a reasonable ride height.

Looks great! I love that color.
