  1. Exterior Problems
    Hey guys :) I just bought a Black 2012 Civic DX 4D sedan for super cheap, and I’m hoping to improve its cosmetic condition to give it a bit more value/quality. Pictures The paint is in very bad shape and the previous owner put a wrap on the hood to try to cover it, and I’m thinking I’ll do the...

    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 😛). Any suggestions on where to buy Honda Crystal Black Pearl paint? I read in a few posts that people go to the dealership. However, I want to go to an automotive store...
  3. 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?

    Just wanted to share my DIY Valve Cover paint job. I used VHT Wrinkle Red after stripping the old, peeling silver paint off using Aircraft Paint Remover. I though it turned out very nice! Let me know what you think!
  5. 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. I didn't notice until a bit after owning it that there was a small area on the roof of the car that was discolored/white and rough to...
  6. 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...
  7. Exterior Styling
    Has anyone tried to plasti dip their roof? I have a coupe that came with the sunroof visor... Once I took it off it left scratches from the visor... Now Im debating on whether or not I should dip the roof black (Mine SI is red). Just wondering how you tape it off correctly.
  8. Appearance and Body Modifications
    Just got my '13 Civic Si Sedan in Taffeta White 2 days ago. Absolutely love this car!!! One thing I wanna do right away is paint my calipers. I purchased the G2 Brake Caliper paint kit in red to keep with the Si red details. I've also watched a lot of Youtube videos on doing this. I know...

    Remember that day when your vehicle rolled off the showroom floor? It was a feast for your eyes, and you were proud to own such a lustful masterpiece. But years passed by, and the elements did their job. Annoying spider webbing on the hood, small dings on the doors, and irritating hairline...

    Has anybody done a 2 tone paint job on their 9th gen? I saw a black and orange combo on a 7th gen the other day. Looked great! I probably wouldn't use that combo though. Anybody have any pics if you've done it? Sent from AutoGuide.com App
  11. Coupe
    I'd like to put black overlay on the roof of the blue car. I like the look of white car black roof, and i thought "Why not on my blue car?". Opinions? Is the car going to look like a full blown ricer? Yay or no.
  12. Sedan
    Finally got around to installing my genuine Honda paint matched splash guards from Australia: Even after going through the car wash, my car is still dirty :facepalm:
  13. Coupe
    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.
  14. Sedan
    I was backing up today and someone tried to go passed me and I heard that grinding sound. Its not huge, but now I have a scratch on my rear bumper. It isn't dented. Just the paint is off. I wonder if I should fix it or leave it until I have a bunch of them and then fix it. I just want to...

  17. Detailing, Wash & Wax
    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. Not sure what it could be, my guess is tree sap that I didn't see that stained the clear coat....? Is that even possible, I scrubbed...

    I know there is a Winter Prep thread, but my questions are specifically about paint protection during the winter. I live in a snow belt, so regularly wake up to heavy mounds of snow on the car. 1) What is the best brush (or way) to get all this snow off a car? 2) Obviously too cold to hand...
