What’s new with the GD3…      

            


Replaced Intake Filter

237,885 km

Was cleaning the garage and came across my stash of HKS PowerFlow (Green) Filters.  Decided it was time to replace…

Last replaced April 2018 at 199,553 km. Old filter element didn’t look that bad considering the mileage!

That headlight bolt needs a cleanup.

Headlight Polish

237,716 km

Polished the headlights… the Torq-X made quick work of the task. Last done May 2020. I should do this more than once a year.

Quick & easy.. no more than 5 minutes each side. 2000 grit polish x2. Yellow pad polish x2. Then wax & microfibre cloth.

Took the car to Dent Craft for some PDR.  Chad did a great job on a difficult body line dent. He also pulled a couple small dings on the right rear wheel well panel N/C.  Excellent work and Recommended.

Not the Switch

My power window problem was the wiring between the drivers side door and body. Three breaks. $150. to diagnose and $300. to repair.


Driver Front Master Window Switch



236,292 km

Replaced the Master Window Switch.  OEM Honda 06358-SAA-406 from eBay for $55.75 USD shipped/imported. 

Pulled fueses & Relay. The windows worked then it didn’t… aaarrrggh… that means it wasn’t the switch.  S@!t

Back on the Bronze Enkei RPF1’s with the BFG G-Force Sport COMP-2. The BFGs were purchased April 6, 2016. This may be the last season for them, we shall see. Its the sixth summer of use..

New Honda Battery (31500-SLN-H360) $184.99 + $10. core from the Parts Department. Curious that Service stated that my existing  Self-installed and save $35.

Back on the Rota Slipstreams & Pirelli Cinturato’s. Kept the spacers on the car.

Replaced the cabin filter with an ATP HA9 Premium carbon fitler. Purchased from RockAuto.com for $12.14 CAD.

Refinished Dead Pedal

My Zeta dead pedal was looking pretty sad with all the rust. It was installed July 2011. It’s only looked real bad in the last couple years or so..

I had davescoating.com refinish it for me. He has a strong reputation in the car community and he offers one stop service. Chemical strip, media blasting and powder coating. Dropped off 6-Jul-2020.
