The factory rear privacy glass (for markets that came with it) surprisingly is 23% VLT (visual light transmittance).
So if you wanted a factory-ish spec to tinting your windows, a 30% all round should give it that look since the glass already has a slight tint in it.
Had a close encounter with an idiot on the road so this install got done a lot quicker than anticipated.
Had the same camera and battery on both the FK8’s and now on the FL5 - was a relatively straight forward install except the fuse labeled “ACC” was still drawing a current even when the car...
Very easy install during the weekend for the Spoon rear view mirror does stick out a bit after install but it’s not bad since it has a wider field of view.
One caveat is that things look a lot closer that it is.
Another thing to note is that different markets have different rear view mirror...
Had the Spoon Air Filter arrive a little quicker than anticipated so went ahead and installed it.
Wanted a bit more noise from the intake having come from the Eventuri on the FK8.
This filter was only chosen due to the fact that I could have it clean without having to re-oil again and while it...
First time trying these, pretty easy install - just be careful and patient not to exert to much force while putting these on
Seems like I need to get used to things looking a bit more closer than it really is but otherwise its a good addition to the car.
It also works well with the tinted...
Wanted to tie in the carbon gearknob with the Honda Access Carbon trim.
If you have trouble lowering the shift boot for the install, just try unscrewing the factory gearknob counter clockwise hard and it will unscrew - worked for the FK8 facelift and now the FL5 👌
Just wondering if any other markets received a third key with their FL5?
Was quite happy to have received something that I only saw a few JDM Accord Euro R’s had back in early 2000s for the FL5.
The 11th Gens Civics have an improved and nice matte finish on the infotainment screen compared to the 10th Gens that I’ve had previously.
However me being me with an OCD problem, I decided to add a glass screen protector.
While the video shows RHD there are heaps of sellers on Aliexpress...
Decided it was time to add more Mugen goodies to the FL5.
With the new 11th gen Civics, I’ve noticed that there wasn’t much of a prominent rain channel on the roof. This usually meant that any water that was still around after rain would inadvertently come into the cabin if your window was...
Used the same combo of parts for when I had the two FK8’s to protect and guard the car against my kids and wife 😂
An added bonus for the inner door guards has been that it helps against scuff marks caused after getting the car back from service.
A relatively inexpensive combo of parts but...
Been slowly hoarding parts for the arrival of my FL5 and have started to install them.
As for prepping for the worst considering we have red carpet, I went ahead and applied 3M Scotchgard to all the carpeting in the hopes it will help soil less.
The Honda Access floormats are such thick pile...
Had last week to document and start adding bits and pieces I’to my FL5 here down in New Zealand.
The parts are made in Italy by Bucci Composites and are really a work of art!
Graphene coated them just for protection and they look even better than it came out the box.
Videos for reference and...
