to be honest its the same procedure that you would use to remove overspray or polish a hood. since the info he provides is not very clear(you can cause some serious damage with a clay bar if used improperyly) ill provide some steps to augment his steps.
1. clean the hood with dishwashing soap. why dishwashing soap? it will remove old wax and residues wich soap ment for cars will leave behind.
2. claybar- follow instrucions on box, basicly keep the panel wet at all times while claybaring
3. before applying the fiberglass restor pass the scratch x, scratch x was designed to be used by hand but using an RO or polisher will make this alot faster, if using an RO, be carefull not to cause burn thru, patience is key
4. then you polish, i personally like xtreme cut, but you might have a hard time finding it locally. also when polishing dont use an RO, use a plan old orbital, lots of how toos online. polsihing can also cause burn thru, be careful and patient.
what i do to repair cf hoods is sand entire hood with 600grit wet being careful not to break through to the fiber...then clean throughly tack off and re clear it...also I do this on all c/f when i get it new..not only does it make look super deep, it protects it from uv rays...the resin the c/f is set in has no UV protectant .. thats y it needs clear
lol, ive done my share of rattle can paint jobs, but one thing i learned working with body shops is a good paint job is 90% prep. ive seen some people do some pretty decent jobs with the rattle can though.
I re-cleared my Evolution CF spoiler in the comfort of my apt. LOL Used a can of clear coat remover (works awesome BTW). That bubbles up so you just scrape it off using a plastic wedge/blade. Then prepare for the clear and spray.
Ok so I’m trying to tension the power steering pump where it needs to be and realized the car didn’t have part of the items needed to do so.
My question is what other piece do I need to complete this so it will stop squealing randomly?
Portion missing is piece that the wingnut bolt threads into...
Need a second opinion here:
I have an 89 CRX Hf that had working AC, not amazing, but it worked. I assume it was R12 as there were no converter nipples going on.
A while back someone hit let head on, broke the radiator and mangled the condenser, but didn't rupture it.
I decided since I was...

So, I have a 1995 Civic Ferio Vi, with a D15B (two stage vtec) engine in it. Imported from Japan, so all JDM parts.
But... Something backed off the bolt on my main pulley (AKA harmonic balancer), and it got damaged. So, now to find one.
