DC5 Recaro RHD Seat Successfully Wedded to GA3/5 Rail

I found the bolts I needed on an NSX website of all places. Didn't get them with the seat, but bought them at Sekichu, basically Japanese Home Depot. So, now it's just a matter of pulling out the current driver's seat and putting in this one. Uses the same stock bolts on the floor. I mean, this is all OEM equipment.… » 7/29/14 7:14am Tuesday 7:14am

Oppo, you're starting to rub off on me. In the best way possible.

I live in New York. This means that despite global warming, we tend to have some pretty harsh winters (seriously who is still a climate denier). Most of the journalists we follow, apart from the fantastic fellows that opporate [sp] Jalopnik, are based in California. They have their fun with their Nissan 300ZXs and… » 7/22/14 8:05pm 7/22/14 8:05pm

Talk to me about the order of cleaning the Logo GA5

Oppo, so I'm not going to worry so much about speed or power with the Logo (GA). There are no mechanical issues and the interior is spotless.

Picking up this JDM 2000 Honda Logo Sportic TS, Thoughts?

Bump for the afternoon crowd since I rarely post to oppo. 130K KM, like new interior (on a 14 year old car!), the exterior has quite a bit of slight cosmetic damage like dings, indentation scratches, bumper gap, and one missing door handle (actually, it's just half the handle, you can still open it easily enough).… » 6/04/14 4:49pm 6/04/14 4:49pm

Why you should buy your JDM dream car... NOW.

Ahh.... Summer. I like summer. But I hate the sun. That may be because I'm a redhead, so I turn as red as a tomato. So as much as I like to SAY I like summer, the truth is that I spend most of it indoors, dreaming of the cars I'd like to own. Only difference between myself and most dreamers, is that I look at the big… » 6/02/14 3:04pm 6/02/14 3:04pm
