Are you talking about the strut tower brace? It's suppose to help make the chassis more rigid. To help with handling.

My wife and I like to go to the drive-in and my old battery was getting kind of flakey and I had run it dead a few times so it was time for a better solution. Speaking of better solutions, need to find something better than a block of wood for a spacer but it is a perfect fit. Maybe I will just plastidip it black..... Lol

Claybarred, glazed and waxed it last weekend.

I took the Honda and an assembled collection of parts to a highly reputable local shop (that I have used for 12 years with various other cars) to get an estimate to install the parts. I got a call at the end of the work day with a pants-crappingly-high estimate.

I have the holiday weekend to think about it since they're closed anyway. Some of it is stuff I could do myself, but frankly I just don't have the time/energy and it would take me weeks or months to do the things they can do in a day or two.
The washer fluid is NOT fine!
