  1. Hi Trev had a 1966 Sceptre before the hunter shaped one, and several Manual Monzas, even looked at one for auction last weekend 25K ooer methinks that's one that wont be coming back to the garage I did dig some piccies out but seem to have lost the abilty to post them up. As an admin guy do you know if anyones got access to a british manual for this bumper off operation I am planning next week. only not got a lot of answers yet. Regards Kel
  2. Hi Trevor Yep always had an appetite for slightly off route cars, even the bus (Accord) is a bit rare being a type S. biggest regret is selling an old Opel Monza, I restored and had for a long time, I think its still out there, last time it cropped up on ebay at 7k I sold it for £1400. and it did not look like it had much work by its subsequent owners. Don't think the same could be said for the Humber sceptre estate , think these were only made for a couple of years, badge engineering before VW, Audi, Seat etc. And sports tourers try and dig some piccies out Regards Kel
  3. No probs Unfortunately the purple Integra is no longer with us, the last owner ended up in a ditch as I saw an advert for parts on E-bay. part ex for a DC5 , that then got part exed at a local Honda garage for my first Accord estate, and since that one appears to have vanished off the face of the planet. pity I messed up the formatting though Kel
  4. Cheers feeling very old nowadays but not been told to grow up with the CRX and I was a lot younger last time the aerodeck was on the road
  5. Hi Posted this on my intro but , thought this maybe a better place for it. I am trying to swap the original grill for one I purchased from MV Tuning in Russia, I have had a different insert made up for it and had it painted so keen to try it on the car. Question is do I have to take off the full bumper to remove the old one, admit it does look the case as I can see how you can get to the clips that hold the bottom tabs in place. If so as anybody got any helpful instructions (or can point me to a video or manual). If anyone as experience of MV Tunings kit that may stop me making a mess of it much appreciated. The new ones got no tabs on the bottom so I am tiger sealing it, but I would still like to do it in away that I could put it back to stock. Hope some one can give me an insight Regards Kel
  6. Hi I am new to the site although I have been running Hondas for several years starting with grey imports, a 1.5 CRX on carbs, followed by a DC2 SIR Integra then a DC5 Type R Integra. as my user name implies "Old" perhaps if I had the DC5 a few years earlier it would have been great, but as a daily driver it and the roads around here (Staffs Moorlands) the DC5 was bril 10% of the time but a pian the rest. Went sensible with a 56 plate Accord Estate (being a cyclist hatch's and estates are best). However a bit of mid life crisis went after another CRX but a UK one, saw loads as use to have Fridays off and this was the best but TBH not really. sill covers off revealed a lot of rust, and probably should have broke it for spares (wasn't todays prices) but stubbornly stuck at it, realising it was going to be a long job bought an 86 Aerodeck to be going on with (that job was laso teh best paid I ever had, albeit short lived). Poor old Aerodecks not been on the road for a few years now, as the CRX is the weekend toy. Last year I bought a 2013 Accord estate Type S diesel (Not without incident). So currently have a stable of three cars, two taxed. On my last one I intend on swapping the grill but can't find a manual online, and the ones I have found seem to be for US cars, although I believe I have to take all the front end off, any pointers would be appreciated Regards Kel
  7. Only just joined myself (ie 1pm 24/06/21) so don't want to tread on any experts feet, especially as I will be looking for help myself later. However have you tried any of the treatments for the plastic headlights, you tube abounds with how to on them but I don't know whats best. I did get some reasonable results with my sisters Scenics headlights once using houseold CIF paste (I heard toothpaste works) and fine wet and dry plus water, as ever I would test a small area first and I would hope the trade stuff would work better, although they still look like paste and polishing paper. You will have to watch the proximity of teh spoiler though. Hope it helps Kel
