This weekend... 260 mile round trip in the iCTDI. Averaged over 70mpg thanks to the speed restrictions all the way up the M20 and M1!

Had scorpion highflow cat fitted yesterday and today changed the auxiliary belt for the correct length for the supercharger to stop it screeching, man that was tight and a job and half. Had to involve the wife as Cheif adjuster pulley tensioner relief lol. Job done and no more screech..

Fitted my pioneer double din

Started with the mic, dab antenna, handbrake cable & usb feed through cubby hole before the full fit using the connects2, SWC patch etc. All wires are hidden, couldn’t have gone better. Well chuffed

Spent two hours hoovering the car and doing the inside cleaning. Having a little one to look after it’s surprising how little free time I have to look after the car properly.

Started on the window seals and ran out of clean microfibres to use after the first two seals!

New wheels fitted as well.

Had a look at those but could only find red or blue numbers and stitching.
Needed black, this came from a 2002 S2000.

Finally managed to get the bulb holder cable out of hiding for the boot. A bit of brute force separated the trim enough i could get it and plug it in! Ive been without it for two years now.

Replaced the following
- Engine oil and filter
- Coolant
- Gearbox oil
- Cabin filter
- Air filter
- Clutch fluid

Discovered a broken control rod for the headlight levelling system.

Got the drive belt to change but waiting for the tool to release the tensioner, diesel filter is a pattern and im going to get genuine Honda before replacing.

Giving the car a wash today and maybe sorting out some stone chips.

Thank you Mate, I used forever black bumper & trim dye kit on Amazon. First cleaned the trim with warm soapy water with rubbing alcohol and the cleaning solution mixed together. Once it dried I applied two coats in total. Will be interested to see how long it lasts, have washed the car since and it still looks good

Then removed the switches and sprayed using Plastikote primer and satin black top coat.
