Share what you did today with the HRV community!

Example: I took her out of the garage and gave her a nice bath and followed up with a coat of wax.

Example: Finally got my window tints done, now I can't open my windows for a week :(

Anything goes....

I scheduled an appointment for "Pearl" (that's her name) to have her accessories installed on Saturday! (Lower trim, Sport Grill, etc) :)

Pearl got her accessories today! Someone had asked me to post pics, but I can't remember what thread it was, so I'll post them here. Sport Grill and lower trim. Before is left or top, after is right or bottom.

Nice job with the before and after shots. Haven't seen this anywhere else. Do Dealerships charge for installation or is it included in the price?

Made my first Cargo Haul! Seats down, box slid right in perfect fit! Fella in the parking lot offered to help me looked inside and said, "wow! Did you measure that?" And I said, "Nope! Just damned lucky!" Probably 1/8th inch clearance on either side of the box (outdoor dining set) and about 150 lbs. easy load and unload!

Any product recommendations? I've previously been on a yearly wash, never wax type schedule and I'd like to take a bit more care of this one.

Oh yes, the dealer charges installation on top of the cost of the accessories. The installation cost varies depending on the dealership.

This is the price I am paying with installation in Maryland.

17" Machine finish alloy wheels $1,474.80
door edge guards $122.88
splash guard set(front & rear) $161.88
lower trim front $328.38
lower trim rear $369.18
moonroof visor $187.26
grill sport $360.78
interior illumination $201.90
remote engine start system 11 $611.58

Is it too much? May be. But that was the cheapest of the 6 dealers that I got the price from.

I got the lower trim, sport grill and remote start and those look like the exact prices that I paid here in Ohio. Let me know what you think about the interior illumination, I debated that but ended up not getting it.

1 I Do a thorough wash
1A Nanoskin wash mitt, it's kinda like claying a car. I do it once in spring and once in fall, this will take any wax or sealant off. Far easier than using a clay bar
2 Klasse all-in-one polish. I use this on the rubber seals and all glass but the windsheild. RainX on the windshield
2A Klasse sealant, spring and fall
3 Collinite 845 wax

Other favorites
Sprayway glass cleaner or Stoner Invisible Glass Cleaner. The can always works best IMO
I like 303 for my faux leather seat covers and tires every now and then
Meguiar's Natural shine on hard plastics like your dash and door panels
Plexus for clear plastic like my head lights, tail lights and bug guard
Meguiar's ultimate waterless wash on my aluminum wheels
Gary Deans ultimate juice for detailing spray, lube
I guess the wife is right, I have a mild case of OCD

I drive a Ridgeline but we put a down payment on a HR-V for the wife that's "in transit"
I can't wait to get my hands on it

College Honda in Ohio gave me this below price.

interior illumination $76.80 (labor)+ $90 (parts)= $166.90

I took my HR-V to a self-serve car car wash today..unfortunately the black plastic bumper and trim turned white. I think the chemicals in the Seattle "Eco friendly" soap did something to it. I have to call my detailer up to have him try and fix it. You can see the white streaks in the picture. I never had a car with plastic cladding, anyone have tips or tricks for care?

What is the lower trim made from? Is it chromed/painted plastic? I like the look but don't think I could justify the cost. I definitely want some door edge guards. I'm notorious for parking the door next to the pole at gas stations. Maybe splash guards too. We'll see what pattern the road grime makes in the rain this week.
