Windshield cowl (wipers) removed, sanded, primed and repainted. Rear (Trunk) filler panel (just above the bumper) replaced (perforated rust). These are known parts to rust, seen on other vintage legends.
Coolant reservoir light comes ON intermittently over time. Mechanic cleans and it restores to normal. Highway drive after Winter hiatus, engine light comes ON, off after restart.
Crest of driver's seat surface leather "cracks" repair, shoe polish, looks new. Leather needs lanolin, dries out quickly.
Seat memory door switch, looses its accuracy.
Does not like cold Winter's, hard start, system memory lamps show malfunction (off on warm restart).
Limited trunk space. Hard front-end ride, typical Honda.
2-D coupe (single driver) very different from 4-D sedan (family), counsel and dash different, wider doors.
Styling, a WOW car. All leather, power roof. Weight, 4,068 lbs. Yokohama rally tires. Everything Japanese (spoiler from Japan, original equipment). 14 years old, emissions test; HC ppm 14, CO% 0.01, NO ppm 49. Double window tint driver and front passenger, blue stripe over top windshield. No blind spots with mirrors, heated seats, lumbar support. Responsive engine, 17-19.8 mpg, city, idle 800-650 rmp, and computerized fuel injection. Original black paint shines with reflection. On-board center dash computer read-out, outstanding. 107,000 KM, mint.
