    Today and sadly there are not pictures, I did an oil and filter change on my beloved Accord. Thanks in part to HH for supplying the geniune oil filter and crush washer along with other shiney things.

    I've always done my own oil changes as I find doing mechanical work somewhat theraputic and this was no exception, though I do get to use my new favourite tool and thats my oil drain pan, soooooo wish I had one of these a long time ago, instead of using a gallon washer fluid bottle with the side cut out of it. Only 1 drop of oil was spilled, which must be a world record for me.

    The other shiney things to arrive from HH though was some brand new wiper blades for both my car and my dads late '12 CR-V and my new Type-R grill, minus the badge, cus it aint a Type-R.

    Its now fitted as I couldn't wait for the new bolts to arrive, so its on, fitted and held in by the two that I didnt snap the heads off.

    On the down side though, looks like I am gonna have to get some more welding done as the rear backing point is all bent up along with the cill, and it looks like there might also be a rust hole in it as well. but shouldnt be too bad getting it plated/repaired.

    Having the right tools for the jobs is a Godsend.

    Grill looks good !

    Rust doesn't sound too bad, should be easily repairable.

    Aye, @SpeedyGee , it's great having the right tools, even then though things don't always go to plan. The heads snapped off due to rusted fasteners.

    But oil changes are a piece of cake.
