It looks like this car has been chilling under a tree for quite some time, surrounded by needles and sticky sap. So, the first thing on the agenda was giving it a good clean to shake off all that mess.

And let me tell you, the change after this seemingly small effort is pretty amazing – the car now looks way better overall.

Next up on my list is giving it a paint restoration treatment to bring back some of that lost shine.

Has a very 80's digital dash look to it.  Not sure why Honda went this route, like this totally looks like the starship dashboards from the 80's.  B
