Installed the OEM splash guard. Already had a scratch on rear bumper but better late than never.
Followed the instructions from college hills honda collegehills honda and the installation was a breeze. Don't even need to take the wheels off.

Also gloss red wrapped this piece for scratch protection. Went with red for the hell of it, not a huge fan.

I posted earlier about Coverking CR Neoprene seat covers but didn't include pics on installation.
The biggest part is getting the rear seat bottom out so that the covers can be installed properly.
Coverking has a good video on how to install custom covers in a 10th gen Civic sedan and my 2018 Hatchback was no different.

I think I've made the pics pretty self explanatory but if you have any questions please fire away:

To get the back seat bottom out there is 1 bolt and 2 clips. I took out the bolt first and then released the 2 clips and the seat bottom popped right out.
Then installing its cover was super simple. Remember to mind the seat belt connection points when putting the seat bottom back in as you can easily enough forget them underneath and then need to fuss to get them back into their proper place afterwards.
When I put the back seat bottom back in I connected the 2 white squeeze clips first and then finaggled the alignment up properly to screw the 10mm bolt back into its proper place.
Getting the rest of the covers installed was pretty straight forward but did take quite a bit more time than I had anticipated but they fit like a glove and that's probably why it took so long because they fit just right and need to be situated as so. It's only been a week but I havent noticed them moving around at all and in the directions they recommend tightening up the straps that run underneath after 2 weeks of use while they settle in and stretch however much they will do.

I recommend these seat covers if you can stomach the price of custom fitters. I saved some bones by ordering them thru Costco's website. Coverking was great to deal with and especially Christine at Coverking.
If you get them, tell Christine that M1KL83 recommended them to you and I'd be surprised if she didn't send you a little something extra for your business like a Skanda Tactical Glass Breaker Pen or custom Sunshade or something like that.

Cheers!

Looking good @ck42 ! And that is exactly my line of thought as well regarding pulling up the center console. I want to do the bushings AND rocker at the same time. Wonder what the ETA on the rocker is.

How do you like the new shifts? Noticeable change?

Costco.com for both rows(front and back seats) is $349 for the CR Neoprene material and not to be confused with Neosupreme that is thinner and not near the quality of true wetsuit CR Neoprene. They have a cheaper material option at $189 called Veloci-Vent as well as more expensive genuine leather $689.
I'm in Canada so prices are a bit different for us up North of the border
