I began creating these articles because I always had trouble when looking for a detailed how-to online for various things having to do with my Civic. I would usually find something, but it would be lacking in some area; either the pictures were horrible or completely missing, or the descriptions were too vague, or there were no technical specifications such as torque specs. It was then that I simply began using a Helms manual, and creating detailed, step-by-step walk throughs of the installs I performed...in hopes of saving others from the frustration I encountered seeking assistance online.

I have posted these articles on various automotive forums with great feedback, and even had a few published. I decided it would be nice to have a central repository for these articles, so that is what you are seeing here.
