Looks really nice. Where are you getting your Honda-color-specific touch up paint?
Thank you. I actually haven't gotten the touch-up paint yet, but ordered it a couple days ago off Ebay (from an actual Honda Dealer "Keenan Honda"), if USPS doesn't act a fool, will probably be here in the next week.Looks really nice. Where are you getting your Honda-color-specific touch up paint?
Damn, that's interesting. As a side note, I went to see how much it might be to ship something to Montreal from here, and it's $12.95, only catch is those paint pens are considered flammable, so I don't think I can technically ship it. Maybe see if it's something the local dealership can order for you?I'm actually geographically closer, but...
Thanks, will look into it. IIRC at least one of those go-to online dealerships (Majestic, Bernardi, College Hills) does ship to Canada, and it's reasonable but not cheap.Damn, that's interesting.

EDIT: Maybe try Bernardi Honda: Shop Genuine Honda OEM Parts & Accessories Online - Bernardi Parts Honda, they supposedly ship to Canada, but can't give a price online and say to contact the store.
Thanks buddy, the way I look at tires is to buy the best ones you can afford, as (with the help of gravity) is all that keeps you attached to the road surface, and is the biggest factor for stopping distance (that could help you avoid an accident).Excellent tire choice (Michelin Defender LTX M/S).
I really only use tire dressing on special occasions. So the can I have has lasted me many years, and I never really payed that much attention to how long it actually stays sheened. Will keep tabs on how it looks and report back in a couple days. It is by far the most glossiest tire shine I've tried over the years, but I think their Endurance line keeps it looking that darker black for longer, though if I remember correctly it does pick-up dust/dirt which ruins the look after a week, and you'll need to wash the wheels by then anyways.How long does that MEGUIAR'S NXT Generation Insane Shine Tire Coating – Aerosol Spray for Insane Gloss -- last? I put some tire shine product on once a couple of years ago, and my tires looked all sheened like they were ready for a bodybuilding pageant, but it only lasted like 2½ days, and that was in good weather.
I am not sure I understand your question.OP I was looking at some of your pictures. Where do you put the snow, because it seems their is no room in your driveway without putting it on your neighbours property. Are they okay with you putting your snow on their lawnÉ
Great job on the control arms! Besides the toe show the HF jack stands caught my attention. There is an active recall for those jack stands so check out the thread.
Thank you. Never really thought about footwear, considering I was sitting on the ground Indian style while working, my feet/legs really weren't under the vehicle all that much. As I work in IT, I don't really have any work boots, and my other shoes wouldn't offer much more protection than the slippers. If I was working under the hood, or where tools could potentially fall on my feet, would consider better shoes, but for the task at hand the risk/requirement factor is extremely low IMO. Will consider getting myself a set of steel toed shoes next time I go shoe shopping.Kudos on a good job.
Except.. are you working under a vehicle with open toe sandals? Anybody got the OSHA anonymous whistleblower hotline number handy?
One down, one to go. As for the jack stands (good looking out ), one of my former roommates left the recalled ones behind, so took them to Harbor Freight, and paid the extra $10 or whatever for each set to get them replaced with new ones under the recall. As they are the 6 ton replacements, they are exempt from the 2nd recall which only affected the 3 ton replacements, so good on that front. You'll also notice I put the wheel I removed under the side-rail of the vehicle, so if there was an issue with the jack-stand, would fall on that first. I also had wheel chocks under the rear tires too in case the parking brake failed.Great job on the control arms! Besides the toe show the HF jack stands caught my attention.

Working under your vehicle can be a rewarding experience and jack stands should be major part of the tools needed to work safely under a vehicle. This is a PSA in case you own a pair of these HF 6-ton jack stands with part# 61197. Present a copy of the pdf to speed the reimbursement process...www.piloteers.org
