    Buying a Honda City 2001

    City 2001 is a nice car.. I used one for 3 years. I can tell you my experience only. This Comes in 2 varieties - Japan & Thailand. Japan means usually these are imported from Singapore (This country of import clause only can be seen in 1st owner's book, once u register it, the new book only states its Made in Japan). KA - KD are the most common numbers on Japan mades. Thailand mades are brand new imports, thus go by H-J numbers. This stopped production in 2002 so if you can find a 2002 thats great. This has VVTi gear box and the AUTO gear model does not exceed 10km/pl in city running. Manual model, however, ppl say it does even 16 km/pl (which I doubt). All 4 disk brakes so good braking can be expected. Sometimes breaking has to do a bit harshly to apply. Engine wont give you any trouble if it has been carefully used. Any car that doesn't exceed 100K millage by now is susceptible for Odo reversal so be careful (Check Green certificate and oil change bills for this). If not used Honda gearbox oil, or if gearbox has a problem there can be HUM noises (Whistle like noise) that reduces after 44Kmph speed. Other than that this has suspension problems, caliper worn outs, bush, Rack issues... But a nice to drive car..
  5. those who request vehicle permits majority were doctors. i don't heard any other professional asking for permit. Doctors always try to do is upscale there life style over other professions , They always maintain monopolistic behavior in society by step down others. Permit is on of the weapon they used for diversification, This time they manage to get nearly 5 million tax exception even MBBS doctor with 5 years working. think how much tax income lost for government. Finally those all losses should paid by innocent people while paying doctor fee to same doctor,. 90 % of doctors those work eligible for permits were sold their permit and earn near 4 million as well. what a country is this. because of this kind of stuff middle class of srilanka step down to lower class and top level class growth more and more. Shame on Sri Lanka

    Good dash cam for the Car

    I have been using the Capacitor version of Viafo A119 and it's a very solid product. Night time video clarity is superior compared to everything I have come across. Only an expensive (Rs 25,000/=) Transcend unit of one of my friends came close the quality. So I think Viafo 1119 is the best budget cam out there. Got it from ebay for around Rs 12,000/=. Came with all the accessories necessary for install

    Good dash cam for the Car

    I've tried a few dashcams in mine and family vehicles. My personal favorite is the xiaomi yi dashcam which records in FHD with absolutely great clarity both day and night. Has been on my daily driver which is parked outside during daytime for 3 years now - no issues at all. Snagged in for $40 from amazon during a black friday sale. The only negative about this is that it's not stealth (i.e. you wont be able to hide it easily) The one that came a distant second in the ones I've tried was pruveeo f5, which is again on a daily driver. Anyway, having a dashcam would be super useful now and more so in the future

    Spec says Video resolution 1280x728 which is HD and video frame rate [email protected], which is very good for a entry level dash cam but is impossible if its not FHD. So I think it should be corrected [email protected] But if its really a FHD (1920x1080) cam then frame rates should be [email protected] and [email protected] I do not think its capable of doing [email protected]

    its not a reverse camera. The back camera to be fitted in the back windscreen. Even inside the vehicle will be fine. Both cameras record simultaneously.

    When the dash cam comes with the normal reverse camera. does it record from the back all the time? Isn't it only used for reversing?

    WagonR 2017 Or Picanto 2017 ?

    10-11 in the city is what an average small hatchback will do, so you are getting the right figures. A wagonR hybrid would do around 13. Lot of Sri Lankans lie about the fuel figures either consciously or subconsciously. Its the same as adolescent boys discussing about each other's penis sizes. Just a mental stigma.

  19. Depends on the job and type of products being used. As I've mentioned above, if it's a minor scratch or ding, once manual straightening is done, you might be able to skip applying cataloy. For a general job however, after bodywork is done, local mechs use a sealant to prevent the metal from rusting. The sealant is then sanded and cataloy is applied. Some types of cataloy (when I say cataloy, I mean curing Body Fillers. Using cataloy and putty here for ease) can retain moisture. So primer needs to be applied on it to create a moisture barrier. After this, the primer is sanded, then small imperfections are filled with putty. Then goes primer. You can repeat a couple of putty - > primer - > wet sanding cycles to get the surfaces to the level you want. Base coat goes on after this. Sikkens is the best from my experience.

    Difference between Putty, Cataloy and Filler

    Whats the order of applying these? Is it Body filler (Cataloy) -> Putty-> Primer -> Base Coat?
  26. Hi Jude, Welcome to the forum. They're all body fillers. Cataloy is a brand. From my experience, there are two types of body fillers. Curing Body Fillers These are fillers that come with a separate hardener. You basically mix the resin and hardener according to the specified ratio and they react with each other and steer to harden within a few minutes. These types of filler are used mainly as the base body filler since they're good to fill in large dents and form contours on the metal. Because it's a curing filler, they don't shrink after being applied. There are different types of curing fillers - some have fibreglass mixed into it to strengthen it and so on. Cataloy/Apoloy are some famous local brands. A couple of years ago I used an alloy based curing filler for alloy wheels and the curing process starts when the paste is kneaded like crafting clay. Drying Body Fillers These are body fillers that can be directly applied without having to mix with a hardener. The liquid in the filler evaporates and makes the filler hard. These types of filler are mostly used for glazing or final touch up work after the first type is used and then primer is applied. This is because this type of filler is much more smoother. These are the type of fillers referred to as putty locally. So basically the two types are used during two stages of the body work. If the damage is very minor, you could do without cataloy and apply putty on a sanded paint surface. The process of applying filler and preparing a car for paint is different from country to country and even region. For a hot and humid country like Sri Lanka, you can't leave exposed sheet metal for long without it developing surface rust. So we apply a sealer (the brown paint) But in dry climates, body filler is directly applied to the metal, primed, glazed, primed again before painting.
