    Maintenance and Service

    Cleaned most of the exposed surfaces in the engine bay using only STP Cleaning and Engine De-greasing wipes. The results turned out to be acceptable. I used the same camera and similar lighting. Before cleaning (picture taken 4 days before cleaning. A freeze frame from a video taken by the...
  7. Testing instrument cleaning methods

    Interior
    Instrument Additional Damage After further researches have decided to live with easily seen bad scratches. Our concern is that I would make a bad situation worst. With Hona and the dealer refusing to step in and help we would be fighting this battle alone. This for everyone’s advice.

  11. GRRRRRRR cleaning the inside of the Windshield!

    Wax on, Wax Off
    I hope I'm not the only one, but I always got frustrated cleaning the inside of the windshield. I can't see to do a good job towards the front by the dash. It was worse w/my Accord as it was a deep window. sorry, just venting as when the weather warms, the window needs cleaning more.

    Weird question maybe, but I really want to keep the black interior of my EX-L looking clean and new and I'm curious whether there are any specific tools or wipes that are highly recommended?

    I'm new around here and have a question about headliner cleaning. Everything I've found says it's a fragile headliner that can sag if cleaned incorrectly. The car was bought a few months ago and I have done everything in my power to clean the interior of the car. The smoke smell still lingers...
