  1. Touching Up Paint Chips and Cracks

    Hello All, for the 7 years of owning my Civic SI, I have never touched up the chips and cracks with new paint (shame on me šŸ˜›). Any suggestions on where to buy Honda Crystal Black Pearl paint?

    Wanted Section
    I'm looking to buy or direct trade my Taffeta White stock hood for a Rallye Red stock hood from a coupe. If no one can trade, is there any way to get Rallye Red custom vinyl to wrap or would paint be less costly?

  4. Exterior Paint/Buildup Issues on Roof? '12 Si

    Exterior Problems
    Hey everyone, I purchased my 2012 Si about a year ago and have loved it. It was a used, one-owner car that was treated very well and had a clean bill of health.

    Detailing, Wash & Wax
    The first thing I did was search on 9thgen... that being said, I didn't find anything. So I spilled cold coffee (2 cream 2 sugar) onto my 2015 white civic. Assuming that the factory sealant is still relatively strong, as it hasn't been a year yet, should I be worried? I immediately wiped it...

  12. Anyone have Krylon spray paint experience?

    I have a black 12 SI and I'm thinking about spray painting the honey comb portion of the grill red. I think the look will be great and it will really pop with a deep red in the front. Does anyone have any experience Krylon paint and how it looks after application.

    My Si doesn't even have 3000 miles on it and while washing it yesterday I noticed a brown colored stain on the passenger door. Looks almost like a coffee stain.

    I was at the dealer today to pick up a paint pen for some stone chips that I'd like to fix. When they ran my VIN, they said my paint code has been superseded by another code. Mine is B586P. They say that they can't order that code anymore. They have to use B561P. I'm just curious to know if...
