Stickers gotta have those stickers

For anybody wondering the Grafix expression stickers are good quality stickers. They look good and stay on through sun, rain and cold and oh of course +5HP too LOL.:biglaugh:

@kev604 I really like the "9TH GEN POP CREW" decal. Do you know if these are still available for purchase? If not, I am curious if you know where to get the vectorized art file (SVG)? I can find my own vendor. In addition, I may scheme up a custom graphic T-shirt with my crew member #. Would people be interested?

You use to be able to order the Crew stickers here but not sure if they are still available and the t-shirt would be interesting.

I've had good luck with them printing old stickers before.

I swapped out the old OEM key FOB case for a new case with the red Honda logo on it cause I had nothing to do. Got this case years ago and it's been sitting in my drawer ever since lol. Old case is still in good shape except the Honda logo is starting to dis-color.

Ordered a set of black replica H badges for front, rear and steering wheel to replace the ones on the car as they are starting to show their age. And also ordered some new hopefully brighter T10 wedge LEDs. Not doing too much to the car this year just catching up on maintenance and cleaning things up here and there.

Nice! I had to replace mine a while back because it cracked. I went to the stealership and they charged me $60! Man, @kev604 I need to head up to Vancouver, BC once the Pandemic ends to get some cool JDM stuff.

I received my Caruse Design Aero flap a while ago. It shipped securely boxed and even shrink wrapped which was nice. My initial impression was that the quality and fitment is pretty good.

Finally installed it a couple weeks ago.

And finally got a chance to take some decent pictures this weekend. It's growing on me I think I like it unique for sure I'm probably the only guy in town who has one.

Interesting take on a flush mounted spoiler. Nice little lip add-on to the existing spoiler? 🔥

I got my replica black Honda emblems in the mail today that I purchased from Aliexpress. Received it in 12 days from China which is a pleasant surprise I expected upwards of a month wait time. Mostly happy with them since I only paid $40 for all three shipped to my door but there was an issue.





The front and back emblem look as good as can be expected from a replica however the steering wheel emblem had a manufacturing defect. Along the bottom of the border there is a rough spot looks like poor lamination poor finishing. I opened a dispute with Aliexpress and the sameday they responded and said they would refund that item and to just keep it so I was okay with that.


If anybody is wondering the emblems are ordered by size. For FB6 front emblem is 113mmx92mm rear emblem is 92mmx75mm and steering wheel emblem is 49mmx40mm. I test fitted all three emblems and they look spot on. Going to wait till the weekend when I have some time before I remove the old ones and put on these new ones.

I finally got down to removing my old Honda badges from the grill, trunk and steering wheel. Since these badges have been on the car for something like 5 years I was expecting a tough time pulling them off but it actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

The front badge came off easy. Just had to slightly wedge underneath it and with a little force the badge popped off. The badge itself was pretty brittle and it was a little dirty underneath.

The steering wheel badge came off pretty easy too. Same idea just wedge underneath it and some pulling and it peeled off. Just some tape residue needed to be cleaned off but other than that the original Honda logo looked new.



The rear was the toughest to remove but same idea just wedge underneath it and slowly pull all around. The badge ripped off but the tape remained. I didn't want to spray any chemicals on the area so I hit it with heat and I was able to roll the tape off. There was some ghosting left so I hit the area with polish, got some of the ghosting off but not all of it.


The old rear badge on the left and the new one on the right. There is some discoloration along the bottom of the old badge but other than that for a 5 year old replica it was in decent shape.



The front badge was in the worse shape. Color was fading, the entire surface was chipping away and the edges were wearing away too.

Overall though no complaints from me. To get 5 years out of these replicas isn't bad at all. The new badges I paid less than $45 bucks for all three so hope they hold up just as well.
