Where’d all that plastic go, anyways?

Update by David S. Wallens to the Honda Civic SI project car
Feb 7, 2003

We’re not exactly sure how it happened, but a couple of months ago, our Civic somehow lost both plastic front fender inner liners plus the lower apron. A friend at Honda questioned if local hoodlums could have swiped the parts, but we think something was knocked loose and allowed to drag.

Well, the missing items have been replaced along with all-new hardware. Does it make the car any faster? No, but it looks a bit better (and makes the car STS legal again).

One of the benefits of living in Florida would have to be our year-round autocross scene. It’s only the middle of January, and we have already run three points events for 2003. (Two of these events were held in November, but technically they were for the 2003 points season.)

We did okay this past weekend, finishing third out of seven entries in the Martin Sports Car Club’s G Prepared class. Even though the class does allow R-compound tires, nearly everyone was running true street tires, keeping things even.
