two part epoxy is where it's at to hold the beast together. That's what I used, no super glue, just epoxy.

I'm working on a write up of how I did it, with plenty of pictures. I won't have it up here until next week, I'm busy as h3ll this week. so stay tuned.

btw, it's a lot harder to get back in once it's in one piece than when you take it out (usually in two pieces).

gl with your repair. :wink:

I say we get someone with a CNC machine to make replacement pieces out of billet aluminum and then powercoat them flat black. That way, they'll never crack again!

h3ll, and it'd probably still be cheaper than the rape of a price honda charges for a new one.

There was a guy on the resource a few years back that did exactly that, he was selling aluminum HVAC faceplates in the finish of your choice for $17, but he's since disappeared. I bought one with a polished finish.

Here's the deal:

No 100 questions, I use Todd for that exact reason.
He actually makes more $$$$$ off these things than I do.

If you do have 100 questions, email Todd @: [email protected]
He will be happy to answer every question you may have.
(Be prepared to pay approx. $13.00)

1 Time only!
Price: $6.00 each. (Cheaper than what Todd pays)
I pay shipping.
2 MAX per US address. (Sorry Bas & my Canadian friends, send me a US address only - get yourself a friend in the US to relay them for you.)

Make a list below with your Screen Names.

I will send you each a PM with payment info.

When I receive the $$$$$, the plastic repair plate will ship the same day/the day after.

Please read the complete thread(s) @ Honda-Tech.

Deadline to put your name on list is: Thurs, Nov 23rd (Thanksgiving Day)

I figure the deadline for payment would be a full week after that. (Thurs, Nov 30th)

If this breaks any rules here, believe me I'm very sorry.
Do what ever is necessary.

Yup, I was well aware of that solution. It's cheap, but it looks kinda ghetto. If we could get the entire HVAC front block made out of billet, that would be amazing.
