Wait. How the hell did you do that?
You go into diagnostics on your radio, and plug in an iphone/android to HDMI and just tell the radio to ignore the VSP/VPS warning(basically I can drive and have my display on HDMI)

I'm gonna do a short clip on it, everyone is going nuts over it. LOL

EDIT:

I thought this was common knowledge.

I found it on YouTube a while ago, but can’t find the specific vid again. All the others are slightly diff, or don’t show everything.

I went to into diagnostics once a few years ago out of bordem one morning sitting outside of work, didn't mess with anything.

Put this together pretty quick. Sloppy but it’s a decent how to.

Well, seems I need a HDMI to whatever usb that cheap phone I use has.

Washed and applied two coats of Turtle Wax Ceramic spray coating should hold me till just before winter when I'll do a full detail.
Thought that stuff was suppose last a year at most. Didn't you put that on back in June/July? I used the TW ceramic wash and wax and its.....odd. It doesn't foam up like regular soap does and felt like I was washing with water. The bucket water got dirty, so I guess it did something but I don't like it.

I used the turtle wax ceramic stuff a couple months ago. It's still beading water fine, but dust sticks. I will not use it on rims in the future. I'll reapply for the winter, I'm guessing in a perfect condition (garage kept, low mileage) it will last a year.
I got the pump, tank, controller, and about 1/2 the wiring done on methanol kit. Can't find prints on throttle pedal wiring, so going to have to figure it out the hard way. Hopefully I can cut throttle input if meth controller faults.

now i see you radio hack video! as i'm getting ready to give it my daugher. anyways, finally changed out the front brakes yesterday. still running the OEM pads with 135K miles on the car. dealer said i was below specs and need to get them replaced ASAP. and since i am giving this to daughter to use while in college up in RI, i thought i would go thru the entire thing and get things done what i can. anyways, i still had 1/3 of material left. not even close to the indicators for replacement. i almost want to go back to dealer and ask them...are these ready for replacement, immediate replacement as you stated last time i was here?

i already had the pads, so i swapped them yesterday. now i know she should be good to do for the next couple of years.

now, if i can get Honda to cover the paint on the hood....should be good to go!

I would expect at least 6-7 months out of it, especially with bi-weekly washes with TW Ceramic or any Si02 base soaps.

Depends on how exposed the car is to the elements if it doesn't see too much abuse I think 6 months is possible but if the car has to deal with a harsh winter than I don't know about 6 months. Regardless though this stuff is so easy to apply takes just 15 minutes so just do it every 3 months for peace of mind.

Watch this video and tell me what you think. Could watch the whole thing or just skip to the 5 minute mark where he sprays a spot with some kind of chemical mix and how long the ceramic coating stays on there.

Very impressive how durable Ceramic spray coating is. He hit that spot at least 7-8 times with a heavy duty cleaner before the coating started to break down.
