Hi all,

Just wanted to say hello. Just picked it up as a new daily. Any tips on things to look out for would be appreciated. Not looking to mod it much but knowing me that'll be untrue soon enough! Ciao.

Take out the spare tire and see if any rust has started forming around the bolt that holds the wheel down. Taillight gaskets are common wear items on a lot of Hondas, allowing water to leak in and pool down there.

The compliance bushings (the big ones at the front end of the front lower control arms) wear out all the time as well and make the front end feel squirmy. Swapping them for polyurethane is smart - the black kind has graphite in it to help prevent squeaking - but the stiffness of it can make the arm tough to wrestle back in place.


Enjoy the car, and don't be a stranger. This place needs more people!

Thanks for the tip! Looking forward to teaching myself on the 6spd.

Alos forgot to mention that I'm in NorCal.
