That can't be comfortable NOR safe in any sense of the imagination.

Don't get me started on the propped hood like that.

I bled my brakes after putting on a new caliper in the rear of my 97 civic.....It was supposed to be an easy swap...wow was I wrong...

Re: *** Official What You did to your eg/ek today ***
 
the rear fender is part of your cars chassis, it doesnt come off.
thats why those rear quarter dents are such a PITA
sorry

Don't get me started on the propped hood like that.

lot of propped hoods are b/c clearance....alot of v6's out of cl type s are running around ny at least under hoods of civics.

Ill deal with the propped hoods, its when they notch em out and let the engine show through the hole that i draw the line.

I never even drove the year this year, at all :P It's been in storage in a different city, somewhere safe. Last summer was kind of a write off for me too, all i did was work 60 hours a week and had no life.

I think i will use this Sept to really try and finish off the car. Install the new engine and tranny, readjust the rear of my suspension and bring it up a little to improve ride quality, plus drop it off at the body shop to refinish a new oem rear bumper and install a matching rear accessory lip (was tough to find, but glad i did)

But seriously,

I bought one for like $100 I think.. Worked nicely. It's called a stud gun dent puller. Check places like Harbor Freight and online even.

Damn. I though you would have finished it for sure. lol

It's too bad she'll be right back into storage for winter. :P
It's good you have a place to keep it safe during the winter!!



You're not the only one though. This summer was supposed to "big" summer for my civic. I did nothing.

I just had it fully synthetic and replaced my old NGK spark plugs with a platinum one.
I also had my timing belt and aircon belt replaced.
My car is a 97 VTi 4 door sedan going on her 110k+ run.
