man this is going to get confusing.... there is someone else here named "2k1civic.com"
i, as well as others, will tell you that reading through old posts is invaluable. most, if not all, of the newbie questions have been answered 1, 2... 17 times. before you get off on the wrong foot, be sure to read up on the things you ask questions about. not to discourage you from posting, but newbie's tend to post alot of the same questions.
most importantly.... have fun!!
