  2. Paint pulling from front bumper during PPF install (2023 Boost Blue Type R)

    They did say the manufacturers recommendation is to wait 90 days for any paintwork. However so long as the car is baked they said it is good to be PPFed. I also confirmed with 2 body shop experts that do not work for Honda and they agreed that it would be ok. And it was. Car looks good no issues

  8. Paint pulling from front bumper during PPF install (2023 Boost Blue Type R)

    Hey all, will continue to provide updates on the car. I know this is a car forum, but as a first time dad and on a forum about the Type R, I now share a new love and wanted to show him off. I'm proud and excited to be a parent and love him more than the car already (maybe...lol) jk. Anyway, I...
  9. Paint pulling from front bumper during PPF install (2023 Boost Blue Type R)

    2 people have now said that the part on the bumper looked like a finger print. Truthfully, I think it was a poorly prepped bumper. Will probably never know for 100% sure but they did all the other surfaces just fine. Hopefully we get it back and fully completed by tuesday/Wednesday

  20. Shift Knob installation on FL5R

    After watching the video I dont really see a clip they are referring to. It honestly looks like they just had the boot off and picked that location to more easily force the snap ring down without damaging the visible part. I can assure you There is no clip that will disconnect the snap ring...
