  3. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    I just got through this, and the parts list that is stickied is great, but only describes what you need, not gives you a detailed description of what you need. So I compiled this list, and it will detail exactly to the code number what you need, and how many. My swap was a k24 swap and a k20...

    Has anyone switched from a DA polisher to a rotary? If so, your thoughts/opinions? I have been using a PC 7424 for years and have been happy with it for the most part in terms of achieving a deep glossy shine on my car. However, I've never been able to remove some of the deeper swirls and I...
