3M 220 grit sanding block, they are purple in color, from home depot! I also used 3M blue masking tape around the letters in case my hand slips then I don't damage the paint job.That looks great! The paint looks a lot darker than the previous photos and how did you get the "HONDA" to stand out so clean? Nice job t-rd.
The replacement is straight forward, all you need is few hand tools and patience. A new Denso compressor is about $200 and a new drier/accumulator is about $15. Then you could take it to an A/C shop after you do the replacement and have them do a evacuation and recharge.Brought '04 V6 with 235K to the shop for AC recharge since not blowing cold....diagnoses stated compressor is shot. Estimate is $1500. Need to decide if i tackle a DIY.
How are you going to tackle the unclogging??Yeah, sounded so. However, the foam padding is thick. It would take forever to dry in enclosed space. Even in a garage, open 4 doors, with fans blowing, it would need days. My garage can only park 1 car, and is occupied by the Q5.
When I was in college, the carpet was flooded due to a burst pipe. The maintenance guy lifted the carpet and set up a Boeing 747 blower fan to dry it, 3 days later, the carpet was not totally dried.
I was surprised how easy it was to cut the carpet with a utility knife: slide the knife blade, the carpet is ready to be torn off, easier than some of the cheese I had to cut. I did have to unbolt the seats in order to cut out the rear carpet.
