  1. 05 Type S common small issues

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    I got a pretty mint 05 Type S, manual, and it's a hell of a car. First I bought it knowing I had to change the exhaust manifold, old one had a crack in it. I bought the Megan Racing one off of ebay and baby does it sound beautiful in the VTEC now, so crisp just the way I like it with my stock...
  2. What all do I need for small paint jobs?

    The DIY Garage RSX
    I'm needing to paint my carbon hood. I screwed up trying to get by with rattle cans; the cans of Desert Silver I ordered just spit all over the panel... it's worth stressing that I REALLY don't care about this thing looking perfect, it just needs to look good enough at a glance. Local shops all...

    Lighting RSX
    I recently removed the cruise/sunroof/mirror control panel next to the steering wheel to fix my coin pocket. When I re-installed it only the mirror controls would illuminate at night. I again removed the panel to make sure the connections were secure and now none of the illumination works. All...

    Problems & Solutions RSX
