Thats what I'm starting to think I might have to do, I have been trolling junkyards all over Ohio and PA since I bought it and haven't found anything, I have seen two people parting out cars with the exact same interior but I couldn't get anyone to call me back. Unfortunately my upholstery knowledge stops at cleaning, and my painting abilities are next to none which is why the car looks so bad on the outside.

Installed my new leather wrapped wheel and added some red stitching to the shift boot, ebrake boot, and arm rest. I think it adds a nice touch to the interior.

I got the idea from this nsx thread DIY Interior Color Stitching


I found it to be relatively easy to do, but it is time consuming, also if you have cats be prepared for them to be trying to play with the thread as you are doing this.


In the future I plan on doing this to stitching on the door panels, and maybe some day the seats but those are going to take a long time to do.

Since rockauto sent me the wrong water pump, I tinted the rear windows instead of replacing it and the cam seal. Hoping to get the fronts done sometime through the next week this Ohio weather can be a pain in the a** thinking I might take it somewhere to have the hatch done.

Oil change and new front pads/rotors.


I'm glad I pulled off the engine cover. Since I've been away for a few weeks, little critters had built a nest on the intake and were starting to "feather" it with insulation from the cover. Hopefully, some moth balls will put a stop to that!

Been pondering this purchase... at $975 before shipping and paint... just not sure. If I did, I'm really going to have to go all out on wheels and rear valance too.

Ps.. also received a 20% discount for their "guess the score" in the world cup on my next purchase.

Went to do a simple rotation today for the Conti DWS06 on my ride. Was told they were already down to 4/32" after just 35,000mi. Worked out a warranty deal with America's Tire. I have some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ coming my way. After the comp and discounts, I'm paying $805 out the door for what would usually be over $1100. I've noticed the Contis were getting noisier the last couple of months but didn't realize the tread was already that thin. Also explains the squealing I've heard lately as well on moderate turns.

These are the two replacements I've been thinking about. I'd be interested to hear your impressions of the PS A/S3 vs the DWS06. While everyone seems to swoon over Michelins...I've always found them pretty harsh riding (even their "touring" tires)...whereas the Conti's seem to be a notch or two down the performance scale, but more comfortable in day to day use?
