  2. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    First off, yes I searched. Didn't find anything. My question is, are any of you running a WS2 in a rust belt area? If so, how's it holding up? The WS2 is the exhaust that I want, but I keep hesitating on pulling the trigger because I noticed that the piping is not stainless. If it's going to...

    So basically I parked my rsx after buying a truck for a little while. It has been sitting lets say for 2 months. Driven every so often. I got in it today to wash/wax and run for a little while. When i rolled the sunroof back, I found the front left corner of my sunroof to be basically rusted...

  6. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Does anybody else have a rusted Progress bar bracket? I installed it back in August of 2007. I thought it couldn't be seen until a friend drove away and was very noticable. I'm sure the winter salt all over the streets helped cause this but I've never seen or heard of this. POS!!

    WTF!!!! I washed my car today and while I was spraying the underside of the car to get the salt and shit off I noticed that my fuckin' exhaust is rusting around the welds where the tip attaches, as well as the muffler itself.......I didn't think stainless steel was supposed to fuckin'...

    Today I noticed that the front underside of my 03's hood is rusting, seemingly from under the paint. I chipped some of it away and well, it's pretty bad. There's a lot of rock chips on the very front of my hood, so I suppose it could have started that way. Is this something I can fix myself or...

    Hey you all. I've got a problem. Briefing: Near the corner of the sunroof frame, the paint is chipped. It gets worst as the days progress. There's rust and the paint is splitting. It's no small rock chip, I wish. Obviously, I'm looking for a solution that I can do myself if at all possible...

    paint chip in trunk area, worry about rusting? There is a 1/4" paint chip in my trunk area where the trunk door closes, it's under where the trunk sits so it's only visible when the trunk door is open, should I worry about it rusting in the future or should it be fine? *edit* Trunk, not truck,

    The good old Canadian Winters has taken its toll on my car. I can't believe how cheap the paint is on our cars, there are more marks and paint chips on my car, then my last one had in the 4 years that I owned it. It almost brings me to tears when I am out cleaning the car, and I am getting the...
