Mar 29, 2005 update to the Honda Civic SI project car

Clean and Prep

It’s taken liberal use of lacquer thinner, rags, soap and a clay bar, but we’ve finally degunked and revitalized the majority of panels on our Civic Si. Only the roof and rear hatch remain to be cleaned. For whatever reason, when we removed the vinyl on those panels all the glue stayed on the paint. The decals on the roof were so brittle that peeling was useless, and they had to be removed entirely by razor blade. The car is also sporting a staggered wheel setup; we’re going to use the lightweight and strong forged Volk TE-37s for our race tires, and the blingtastic chrome monsters as our trailer/intimidation wheels.
