rust

  1. 3rd Gen
    Hello! I've had my '88 Prelude for nine years now and since I bought it, I've had very little issues with it. Still, like others that own this car in a area with half the year covered with snow, rust is i persistent problem, even if I don't use the car in the wintertime. At this point, I'll...

    My 1998 base i bought two months ago is no spring chicken, of that i am well aware. it has a large amount of cosmetic flaws which im slowly fixing one by one, and all of its problems are fixable, but this one thing which i actually just noticed today (i notice more stuff every day) and this is...
