  1. Wheels and Tires
    So last night I am cruising on the 10 West in Redlands. I nailed a tire ramp on the freeway... I was the last of about 20-25 cars to hit this thing. So I pull over. Both left tires are toast (chunks missing from tires) and at least one rim is gone as is has a quarter size chunk missing. :(...

    You know when you first drove your Civic home? The steering wheel was matte. If you look down at where you push to sound the horn, that's how matte it should be. But from the oils in your hands, the steering wheel naturally starts to get glossy over time. I want to get rid of that but I haven't...

    I just installed a new pioneer unit in my civic and installed a pac- swi-rc with it to keep the volume and track control working with it, but after I installed it I totally forgot about the other purpose those buttons had (to go up, down, and enter on the menu). Now I can't access my oil change...

Make sure to take your time, I am not responsible if you mess up anything. Do it at your own risk...
