      Hi,

      Recently i had this problem of slight water drops forming inside the driver and passenger side of pillars.

      I fixed it and it was damn easy (i feel this method can be used for other cars as well)

      Steps :

      1. Open the external roof trim, the black plastic trims running on the roof. (insert flat head screwdriver and lift up gently, better cover with cloth to save the paint)

      2. Cleaned it thoroughly with water and a toothbrush, never expected solid dirt and dead leaves inside.

      3. After thorough cleaning could see very tiny cracks inside, so thats the trouble.

      4. Bought some M-Seal super from pidilite, it has 2 materials in one packet, black and green, took 1 pinch from both, mixed it well was bit sticky like gum.

      5. Applied properly over the cracks and let it dry for 2-3 hours, becomes rock solid.

      6. And then refitted the trims, it is raining damn heavy in mumbai since last week but water has stopped coming in

      7. Remember not to put thick coat as it will be difficult to refit the trims.

      No need to do anything from inside, DIY.

      Time : 1 Hour
      Cost : M-Seal Rs.20/-.

      Regards,

      Aakaash Dev

      Hiii,

      I was looking for a long time for the civic in cabin air filter. At last i have found one.

      Brand is Zip and cost is Rs.600/-. The fitting is little bit big but fits ok.

      Talking Civic Steering Wheel Emblem Removal, Paint & Attaching

      Hi All,

      Many people have faced that Honda Cars steering wheel emblems chrome comes off and looks bad, i had this issue with my civic too.

      So Here is what i have done, 1st tried putting Plasti dip with masking on the logo but poor results.

      1. Remove the steering wheel logo, it is actually attached so i had to put flat head screwdriver inside and cut plastic joint behind with swiss knife. There are 13 joints but i took my time and got it perfectly out, you can see the images.

      2. Bought a sand paper for Rs.10 and removed all the remaining chrome from the logo and washed it properly to remove any particles, pic attached.

      3. Then, i used Carlas Rubber paint same as Plasti dip, i ordered a fluoroscent red but turns out to be orange pinkish.

      4. Give a light coat 1st, wait for 5-10 mins.

      5. Give a nice coat again. I did 6 coats each waiting 5-10 mins. Remember the paint should not drip else edges become uneven.

      6. Now wait for it to dry and tada, i took it back and applied some fewikwick and installed, very easy job when you remove and do it.

      Please see all the pics and DIY byeeee.

      Nice job, I removed the emblem the same way in my civic too. But I replaced it with a new red H steering emblem instead. Its the same as civic type R steering wheel.

      Thanks Sanchit....

      sgitk, the url is zipfilter.com, i actually got it from a local store.

      Also, I am happy with the quality, the foul smell from ac has stopped after putting the filter.

      Tyres for Civic

      Hi,

      I am running Bridgestones on my civic at 54k now. The tyres are dam noisy and i wanted to put new ones now.

      Heard a lot about Michelins but they are very expensive. (205/65/R 15).

      With all the reviews i am confused what to buy. I dont want to spend very high as for Michelins.

      I am looking at Less Noise, Comfort, efficiency & Grip.

      Please suggest with prices and models.

      Yo People,

      I got my tyres for civic changed.

      Earlier : Bridgestone B390 205/65 R 15
      New : Pirelli P1 Centurato 205/65 R 15 4 Tires (23500)

      Nice handling, Grip, Braking and silent too. Got the June 2014 Stock.

      Lets see how it is in the long run.
