Davy's Car Blog

Heyy Guys - New CRZ owner from FL. This is my 4th Honda. I recently lost my Integra in an accident and this CRZ is the replacement. I paid $7,000 for it. It's a 2011 base model with 78k miles. I had to get an automatic bc I want to be able to swap cars with my gf's Fit when I need to pick stuff up from HomeDepot. She doesnt drive a manual...

$5 rear wiper delete. Used a faucet cover plug and a rubber grommet from HomeDepot, plus some gasket maker for extra insurance. Also debadged.

Upgraded all the interior light bulbs to LEDs. youve seen pics of all that before, except maybe the one below. Its for a Fit, but also fits CRZs apparently. I just had to trim some of the plastic tabs inside the light housing though. Its really really bright. So bright that I decided to order a smaller blue LED light bulb for the driver's side for lo pro situations.

Got some new parts in today. Bayson R JP style front lip and LCD screen.

Bayson R is known for having the best fitting Mugen rep and Type R rep lips in the integra scene, so I chose them. IMO this style lip is much cleaner than the Mugen style. Not sure if I want to color match the lip or leave it black. Right now I'm leaning towards color matching with rattle cans. I have a Harbor Freight spray gun and a couple of air compressors, but for some reason the rattle can jobs always come out better. I can never get the gun dialed in right.








Not sure where I want to mount the LCD screen. Using it for a lane change assist camera and for a front view camera so I dont smash into parking blocks once I'm lowered with a lip. I think it looks coolest int the center console cubby, but the view is obstructed with drinks in the front cupholders. If you have opinions/ideas as to a mounting location, I would love to hear it.
