I used just under 12 cans. I'd recommend using 15-18 though cause mine could use an extra coat or two.

Nice! You should get some new lenses so the angel eyes look better or give yours a thorough cleaning.

I went to the Honda dealer to see how much they would be willing to get me if I trade it-in for a new civic. I am reaching my breaking point.

All you need to do are either catless headers or a muffler delete for good sound that's not obnoxious.

Thanks!

I am sure i will be surprised at how good it is. Its hard to tell by most videos. At least its not too obnoxious cause there is a cop that lives at the top of my steep hill and the stop sign is right there. So hopefully he doesn't get too pissy when i leave at 645 in the morning

Shouldn't be too loud unless you delete everything in your exhaust. I'm doing just a muffler delete cuz it would be way too loud without the cat and resonators

Fixed the rear passenger vapor barrier today, new windshield wipers and new foglight bulb. Ordering new headlight lens, belt tensioner, serpentine belt, VCG, spark plugs and fuel filter at the end of the week. It's starting to come along quite nicely if I do say so myself.

I already picked out the tips at the shop. $25 each but they're really good chrome. A buddy of mine got tips from there a few years ago and they still look brand new with no polishing ever done to them
