Just for fun.

I sold my DD because my dad gave me his old Honda.
Only reason I like it is because itís a manual.

Iíve had it for about 8 months and did a lot of updates and maintenance on it.


My dad bought this car a few years ago with 146k

It currently has 215k.

I plan on keeping it until 300k (ish).

Here is before and after:









Here is when I got it:

The day I picked it up from Maco.

I did he cheapest paint job.
I actually wanted a charcoal color, but there was some miscommunication.

Total cost was about $575. Totally worth it.

I donít have great photos of the paint before, but believe me, it was terrible.

Headlights made a HUGE difference and were only $30.

Oh and there is a LONG story here.

Basically, I caught Brakes Plus in their own lie. And they totally screwed me. Never go to Brakes Plus in Highlands Ranch.

Luckily I have a great Honda guy in Parker that could fix their mistakes for a fraction of the cost.
