  1. What did you ppf?

    That's good to know. Wasn't sure if the badges were included.
  2. What did you ppf?

    I would also add the front "H" badge to the list. These badges will eventually crack and you may get sick of constantly replacing them, but at least the film will hold it in place and you wouldn't be able to notice the damage from a distance. These badges aren't cheap either. I also had PPF +...
  3. Best front only or front/rear video cam brands and ease of installation...

    You can still have some fun with the rear cam. :cool:🙃
  4. Best front only or front/rear video cam brands and ease of installation...

    Agree - definitely useful for accidents. I provided this footage after some clumsy lady t-boned another.
  5. Best front only or front/rear video cam brands and ease of installation...

    I had the DR900X-2CH Plus 4K UHD-FHD installed with the detached LTE module in my FK8. There's also a non-LTE version of the DR970X-2CH Plus if you want a smaller, more discrete form factor for the front cam. Then you could just connect the external LTE module to the cameras. Blackvue cams...
  6. Active Dampers too stiff on FL5. Disabled with Damping Cancellation Kit

    Then the hardware is literally different, or the same but has a different p/n because they are from two different car brands even though Honda is still the parent company (not sure how they do their p/n assigning convention). Regardless, there is a separate p/n for the metal case and one for...
  7. Active Dampers too stiff on FL5. Disabled with Damping Cancellation Kit

    "39381-31M-A03" is the part number you reference when you order the DE5 ADS, right? This is the "top level" part number. I'm assuming that the FL5 ADS also has "39380-31M-A0**-M1" etched into the metal casing. If this is the case, it is because the FL5 and DE5 both use the same ADS hardware...
  8. Thoughts on the carbon fibre wing?

    Yea honestly, going by feel will probably be good enough (moderately tight - if I remember, not much force at all, since the click happened pretty quickly). But it's probably good to have a low torque wrench in your arsenal anyway heh. Keep in mind that tool is rated in inch-lbs, so just divide...
  9. Thoughts on the carbon fibre wing?

    Which torque wrench did you get? I used this to install my CF accessory wing for the FK8. This one goes down to around 3 ft-lbs. 3/8 inch drive as well...
  10. What did you do to your FL5 today?

    I like this unit. Been using the OG Redline (that one had excessive falsing) before I replaced it with this one. It's a very good comprehensive all in one set it and forget it detector. The only real zonk compared to other similar top tier detectors (Valentine One mk2, Uniden R7/8, etc) is the...
  11. Video: How the FL5 Civic Type R is built in Japan... production video

    They are referencing the FK8 LE wheels. Both sets of wheels do look the same though, besides the red striping, 19 vs 20 size difference, and the BBS engraving.
  12. Active Dampers too stiff on FL5. Disabled with Damping Cancellation Kit

    A super soft floaty comfort mode can come in handy when you're forced to drive over roads full of holes; it soaks them up nicely. That's about the only thing I miss about my stock 20-21 non-LE ADS comfort mode. Otherwise, I'm in the LE-upgraded +R damper mode 90% of the time.
  13. Exploring a clean FK8 spare tire kit install in the FL5.

    Would not raise the car that high with the scissor jack, but just enough to remove one wheel at a time. I tried and learned the hard way. The scissor jack failed and the car came crashing down, luckily I had not fully removed the wheel. But the top of the jack punctured the entire driver rocker...
  14. Another FL5 Civic Brake Bleed Thread - Ran the Reservoir too low

    So it looks like it's a good idea to do brake and clutch bleed at the same time. Brake first, then clutch. Clutch bleed is quicker and simple in comparison.
  15. Another FL5 Civic Brake Bleed Thread - Ran the Reservoir too low

    Just to clarify... it is clockwise starting from driver front correct (and not FD, FP, RD, RP)? Also, is it advised to flush out the clutch fluid at the same time? Is it all interconnected with the brake system? Getting the brake fluid flushed out this weekend, hopefully the shop does it all...
  16. 3000 Miles in 4 days

    I enjoy long trips in the CTR. Did a Long Island NY to south FL jaunt in one go, just stopping for bathroom, gas, and meal breaks. This car feels like a Lincoln Town Car (even with 20-inch wheels and LE ADS) compared to the S2000 (with CR suspension), with which I also used to drive down to...
  17. I got the FL5 a little friend!

    Yea, he knows how to drive too. That video of him doesn't link, so I guess you have to click on it to see it on YT. Seems like he liked the S2000, only complaint being lack of low end.
  18. I got the FL5 a little friend!

    Miss driving this thing, the tossability, throttle response, and the wail of VTEC with the top down is something else. Hold on to it. Been reminiscing. Some motivational videos... Gansan airborning the prototype at the Nurburgring in dress shoes and no helmet. Clarkson praising the S2000...
  19. I got the FL5 a little friend!

    It has an excellent shifter, possibly the best in the world for a production manual car. Loosely quoting a magazine from around 25 years ago, I recall they stated that the shifter moves with the precise action of the bolt from a fine rifle.
