That's hilarious, I live in Canada and I found what appears to be the exact same thing but Canadian.

Length, height, lift height all match. Probably build by the same manufacturer and labeled for each company.

Thanks and cheers.

Yep that's exactly what they do, it is a Chinese made lift and is sold by multiple companies with their name on it.

Finally got around to removing the fenders and bumper to check out the frame damage my EG has. My right unirail and apron is damaged. However, I looked some sites and found this part. The damage to my car. I apologize for the large image.

Why not use dish soap, washcloths, and brushes?

I'm not gonna lie, I do forget to replace mine every once in a while but I've been trying to replace it after 3 oil changes just to stay on top of it.

5 gallons? You know you dont just pour it on the engine

Just get the spray bottle and a small brush and a garden hose. Rinse after scrubbing

Just picked up a 92 Civic VX. Pulled off the rear "racing tow hook" from the back.

Compression was good, might need an ISB on the transmission, 150ish across the board for compression with 4 cranks.
Hearing some rattling I'm not a fan of but I can always throw my DX manual tranny in to rebuild the VX taller gear tranny.
Needs a tune up, the plugs looked fairly worn but not too too bad.
Also have to do the timing belt and water pump right off so I know where it's sitting at.

Question I have is, what is the best way to get plastidip off the paint?
It doesn't appear to be thick enough to peal off in chunks, or thin enough, whichever the case needs to be.
The whole thing should be green but is spray gold plastidip.
I do have plastic razor blades and a couple of plastic scrapers and I don't care how it looks as I'm slowly working it off.
I just need to know what the best practices are on removing the stuff off paint.

Is there a part# for the boot on the wire harness where it enters the firewall on an EK?

I'd love to find an agp vx, sucks that it was painted over but least it wasn't spray paint. Try contacting plastidip and see if they can recommend a way to remove it. Stock engine and ecu? Post pics!

Only want to take off the plastidip.
Nice suggestion though...

Googling says WD40 is pretty good at softening plastidip.

Isopropyl is also good to get under the dip with plastic razors.
