    the p5nugget

    Hello. Starting a thread to keep track of maintenance, to do lists, and post photos. Picked up this P5 as a daily/backup car in November 2015 to replace a civic hatchback. Since I have a bunch of protege parts laying around, a p5 made sense. For now at least. The wife uses the p5 when her car is down for repair too so that's pretty cool.

    Picked up this car with 185k on it. The engine was dusty but everything was intact. Most of the issues on the car were cosmetic. Driver fender appeared matte and dented up from a slight fender bender. Driver side sideskirt was hanging off. Corner of the front bumper right under the fog light was punched in. Headlights were cloudy and fog lights were missing. Interior was pretty neglected and missing rear speakers.

    Maintenance:
    • 186,000 miles: installed deeza lower control arms
    • 191,000 miles: timing belt, water pump, accessory belts, thermostat
    • 195,500 miles: transmission gear oil changed
    • 197,730 miles: replaced rear passenger caliper, readjusted ebrake, bled brakes
    • 199,915 miles: replaced bad primary cat with manzo header. installed used primary (125k) and secondary o2 (59k) sensors
    • 199,950 miles: installed beck/arnley outer tie rods
    • 201,600 miles: new front struts
    • 202,700 miles: last oil change
    • 203,800 miles: all within 1 tank of gas, new strut mounts & bearings, driver side inner tie rod, driver side LCA, driver side hub & wheel bearing


    Goodies:
    • OEM MSP headlights w/ H4 LEDs
    • Yellow fog overlays
    • MP3 short shifter & shift knob
    • MP3 ECU (borrowed from Gabe710)
    • Tein S-Tech springs
    • Manzo Header
    • DIY intake w/ cigar smoke limited edition
    • CR3 dress up washer kit
    • Generic antenna from eBay


    To do list in no particular order:
    • paint rusty wiper arms
    • paint rear wing? clear coat is peeling

    Are you going to tint it yourself, or have a place do it? Our cars are easy.

    Moved my post from 6-25-2016 to this post to clear up a post for just photos.

    yesterday, i removed the tint from all windows except for the one on the rear hatch. the tint is faded so bad that it's pretty much clear. surprisingly, it didn't leave much adhesive behind when peeled. if there was residue, spraying soapy water and scraping it with a blade did the trick.

    the passenger window left no adhesive behind.



    the worst adhesive i had to deal with. again, it wasn't that bad at all.

    most likely bringing it to a place to get it tinted. i've never done tinting before and don't trust myself. removed the rear hatch's tint yesterday and it left a crap ton of adhesive. had to hit it with some acetone to get it all off.

    replaced the HVAC control unit with a spare one i had laying around. no more flickering between speed changes and no more being stuck with fan speed 1 lol. i tossed that old unit in the garbage with the quickness. upon inspection, the very back of the switch where the harness plugs into was super loose and wobbly on the bad unit. was nice and tight on the spare. -thumbs up-

    wasn't trying to be in this upper 90 degree weather this week with only fan speed one and no tint lol

    Sup man! Nice pickup on that P5. Just saw you're in Va Beach too, awesome to see another local around! You ever go to Night Moves? There's always a couple P5's there and they're all black haha I'm the only one not lowered yet around here most shops want about $200 to do our cars. I took mine to Eclipse Auto tint over in Norfolk and they did a nice job. Comes with a nationwide lifetime warranty, wherever there's a Suntek installer. Excited to see what you do with it man
