Have any clear coats you would recommend? Next time I clean them, I'll try this.

You only need to apply one coat. Just make sure your clear has UV protection.

I guess its just an update.

Clutch is going so expect a lot of pictures and a lot of questions. Also still looking to relieve this car of daily driving duty.

haha thanks. I don't think I can do a meet this year though. :( I need it to last as long as possible to get it to the winter break. I am hoping spring we can do a meet before the hot weather sets in and after the snow melts.

i'd be okay with not driving the civic (driven my fair share of civics already). you can drive the subie and see how hard it is to drive compared to the civic :lol:

So I figured out that my clutch needed to be just re-adjusted. But now I get a wicked chatter when I go uphill...I think its me though. I feel like a noob all over again haha.

Do you mean when you launch uphill or when you're just cruising in gear uphill?

When I launch. I would be getting a bit of a chatter when I would floor it in 4th gear before I adjusted the clutch. Now I think no more! :D

I want an EK :( I looked at numerous ones.

The EF is nice though, I like the old 90s Japanese sedans.

I love EP3s. I just wish they didn't put a weak K20 in it. :(

But its not that bad. Atleast a k20a2/k24 swap is possible.

I was thinking of getting an old fit. Fuel efficiency and it seems like it has some of the old honda from our generation left in it.
