Would that be the intercooler? Either way, you're right, if damaged by road debris, it would certainly mess up your week. :|
Holes are less than 1/4" .. My other Civic went through 3 winters up here in snow country and hardly a mark where the rest are showing flattened fins.I don't see how that will do much good, since its got decent size holes in it anyway.
Exactly , cheap to replace too. One roll at the $$ store is $3 and you get 25 feet. The mote Zip Ties you attach it with the stronger it is.It would take the first hit from a large rock. Instead of the inter-cooler fins being damaged. Its an issue in construction zone areas, which is all summer where I live
Here is a closeupDo you have a close up picture of the plastic screen gutter guard in your civic? Thanks!
Thanks for the pics! Looks like the gutter guard blends in perfectly and looks factory. Great license plate setup too! I would get that if having a front license plate showing all the time wasn't mandatory...
Saw them too. This system is just the cost of 4 hinges.I saw a hide away plate system online that tucks the plate away very clean under the bumper and comes motorized with a remote fob or just manual. Great thing to get for those willing to spend in the range of $50-150.
Yeah that is the massive plus side to going that route and something that can be done immediately. However the ability to have your plate hidden and tucked away will appeal to some people, all depends on what someone wants to achieve.Saw them too. This system is just the cost of 4 hinges.
Even the aluminum stuff has holes this big. You dont want to reduce the air flow. After 5 winters of having these in my Civics I experienced virtually no concernable damage.Does home depot have gutter guards with smaller holes or are the hole size standard? The guard looks like it'll block off the larger chunks but I'd like to block the smaller rock debris too.
I cut it to size by laying it over the opening on the outside then folded it and slipped it through an opening on the right side . Zip ties were placed at the top and bottom of the grill uprights.How did you get access to place the screen behind? Where are the zip ties? I can barely see their placement and how many you used? I have not yet looked at these cars in detail beyond looking briefly on the lots. Great recommendation.
