Honestly,it would be purely for cosmetic purposes. Having the ability to easily swap out different types of lips could be interesting for some people.

Agreed! I saw it and even gasped a little.

I just got carried away playing with the car and having too much fun with the 86. She makes me happy. I originally wanted one without a spoiler, and that one day I would remove it.

I remember talking to my friend's mom and dad(whose really into hot rods) told me; back in his car days, rivets to bolt on fenders and such was a style thing.

When I was talking to his mom, she talked about how zippers and buttons were used in high end clothing/fashion.

So I had this idea that if I plugged the holes with nice buttons it would prevent water from going in and could look nice too. Now I think about it the car looks like I have hood pins or body piercings. kek.

Thanks for the feedback and everyone for the positive vibes!
If I ever get back to Castroville, I'll have to try a burger there. If you like "homemade" type burgers, JJs Burgers over in San Juan Bautista are pretty good.

Be careful about listening to those old coots about car modifications, they had some weird ideas -

Enjoy messen wich your car -

Alright. I went over the whole suspension today. I found a nut loose of my front WL end link and tightened that. That did the front. Bouncing the car up and down and I had zero noise form the front.

I re-installed the rear bar without end links and greased that crap out of the bushings. The still squeaked as I rotated the bar...I pulled it off again and notice a bit of material sticking out from the edge of the bushing. I found an inner sleeve that appeared to have not been formed correctly when made. I looked that the other side and saw the same thing. These are the new greaseless bushings but all of the area wasn't covered by this sleeve. I used a file and needle nose and removed the sleeves completely. I took the whole assembly apart including the end links. I regreased the bushings and used Break-free CLP-4 everywhere.

So far, I'm only getting a minor squeak/bind when going up a driveway/incline. I'm very happy and hope it stays this way! If not, I'll order new bushings. The rear bar makes a huge difference.


ETA: NOISE CAME BACK WITHIN A WEEK

Flushed the clutch fluid out, and installed AC Vent overlays that I painted with black trim paint.

Turned out pretty good. The overlay doesn't cover the inner part of factory trim. The shift knob and TCS buttons are still silver so it sort of ties that together.

How the hell do you get pop clips in? Kept having them either completely deform or only 3 out of the 4 flaps would go in and the last one would be bent to shit or broken off.

Got the front windows re-tinted at 35% with Rayno's thermal blocking product.

I'm seriously debating tossing on the 70% Rayno tint on the front [windshield] as well to block some of the heat.

Legal? No. But common place to have front driver and passenger windows tinted.

lol I should have clarified, the front windshield is what I'm contemplated tinting with the 70% for the thermal rejection ~

Haha yeah I just meant the front windshield. I've never lived anywhere you can tint the windshield aside from the little strip on top

Yeah, I don't think there is anywhere that it's legal to do. But with 70% light going through, its not initially obvious that there is a tint installed.
Honestly, I don't think you'd notice it unless you were aware of it being there in the first place.

The shop employee/owner tinted the front windshield of his civic and I didn't realize until I looked veeeeeery closely.

There is clear UV blocking tint FYI. I hear it still has a tiny bit of color to it though
