Got ‘HOT WHEELSier’!

Butt dyno calculates this vinyl adds 43.6 HP.
Now I won’t be confused with my local bud who has very similar R, no more, “I saw ya th’uther day”.
Unique, I nique too.
May change custom plate to match theme, not many Florida choices available. Subtle not in vocab.

You definitely need to purchase one of these.

Thanks for sharing. I have about a dozen, low stock for me. Pre-COVID I used to give one away every show/meet to a youngster excited about Honda to cultivate our next-gen. I still do that occasionally but these went from a few bucks to over $10 delivered and I’m generous but not wealthy. 😎

Decided to paint my New valve cover Wrinkle Red. The old vavle seal finally gave out and I am starting to see oil building at the rear of the engine/vavle cover. It’s not perfect so don’t judge me, but for $125 for everything vs. Spoons $650 cover I think i did ok. Lol 😆

Installed a Dream Automotive teardrop shift knob this past weekend. I like the weight and oem feel. Goes well with my OEM+ build.

Here’s more info on the shift knob for those who are interested… (skip to 3:43 seconds)

This one fits like a glove. No exact part number so hopefully this link will stay up.

Photo below. Now I will have 4 buttons occupying only 2 slots. Will have a empty slow for future upgrade.

Do you have to replace the pins on the existing wiring or does it fit inside that connector?

Few more additions to the theme of my build:

Polished Cherry Red Death Star shift knob (and some fun buttons):

Honda Civic 10th gen What did you do to your Type R today? 1000005251


Aside from the fact that it's the f-king Death Star, this shift knob is perfectly weighted, perfectly sized, and has an awesome grippy texture and feel to it thanks to the multiple trenches in Vader's design.

Even if it didn't have that little dimple on it capable of destroying entire planets, I would still buy this again in a heartbeat as a really awesome and high quality shift knob. Worth every penny of the $180 I spent on it, and now I see it's on clearance for $120. Awesome improvement in shift feel with the OEM shifter. Can't wait to try it with the Acuity shifter.

Also, those buttons in the picture are just 12V outlet covers, and those are getting sent back in favor of some similar but functional buttons that I just got, which are in the process of being rigged up with sound effects.

EDIT: Just noticed I had the wrong. Video linked on the sound effects comment above. Fixed now.

Also added a TIE Interceptor dash ornament and targeting computer (HUD) with calibrated speedo and OBDII data streaming.

Also noticed that my car's speedometer is off by way more than I thought it would be after I went up by 10mm on the new tires. No wonder I've gotten pulled over twice in the past month...

One vote cast (pun intended) for classic gunmetal vs trendy bronze. Both good choices, your build your way.
