Almost 7% increase of added vs actual miles driven too. Going to make calculating fuel mileage pretty difficult at the least.

Spent the day struggling with removing the rear tint again, not much progress and Im pretty sure the ammonia I used ruined the defroster lines since I didn't use anything else but newspaper. Really disappointed about that and now considering getting replacement glass.

Do you know how to test the defroster lines?

I have not checked yet, just noticed that the black part of the lines has come off in several areas. If it turns out that it no longer works its not a big deal since it will be nearly 80 for the next few days. The remaining film and residue make most of the window a blur though. The top of the window is pretty much transparent but that's about it.

I can easily look up the test procedure.

You can get a copper conductive paint to "connect the lines". There is a specific item sold on Amazon to repair the defroster lines.




Its a kelly charger gt tire, 4 years and 60k miles old. The eBay seller did not fulfill my order. Tires are guaranteed by Tuesday and the ups tracking shows item still has not been received from seller. So no tiny tires for me. Frustrating because they basically have me hostage to doing anything until they come back Monday and refund me. I cant just go to walmart and buy my backup set if the other set comes in a day later. So I cant drive the car until then

Washed and waxed. Found out the car had a broken valve cover bolt, remembered I had a set of those custom style bolts from eBay.

So I have a 1999 civic automatic (D16y7) and first gear is out of it and itís been sitting at my house on a parking pad for a few months now. I washed it really good, charges the battery and drove it about 10 miles on some back roads near my house. Iím excited to get it up and running properly itís got no rust and miles are reasonable. I plan to put a J series engine in it here hopefully soon. But thatís what I did today! Quick question a four door civic is an ek? I donít know what those letters mean. I know an EG is the hatch version right? Thanks guys Iím excited to be a part of the forum!

Do a lot of research and be sure to get yourself plenty of information if youíre serious about that swap.

EG = 1992-1995
EK = 1996-2000

If I may ask, what lift is that bigjon1378? That is a far better solution to a garage lift than I've been able to find, that is exactly what I'd like to have.

Researching, I haven't seen one quite like that and all the ones I found are way busier in the middle making exhaust work impractical. Brand and Model of that one would be helpful to check availability in my area.
