Exclamation ***The 1st Gen Noob Guide***

First off, if this is your first time on Acurazine, let me just say on behalf of all the members and myself, welcome. Acurazine is a wealth of knowledge for the beginner looking to either fix, mod, or just look up some information on your Acura. Please, browse through this thread as simple introduction to the site and the 1st Generation CL. There's a ton of information here at your fingertips, so go on, take a peek, and hopefully we can answer some questions you may already have.

As a simple suggestion, if you can't find your answer here, use the search function located at the top of forum page. It's right under the Acurazine banner, you can't miss it. This helps not only you, but the forum in general, as it keeps the number of new threads down by providing you with topics that have already been covered.

For all of our veterans, here's a new twist on the old noob guide, simplified for easier searching. I hope you enjoy it.

A special thanks to all who have helped in this edition, past edition, and everyone who has taken the time to dig up all this info.

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or want info added to this guide please feel free to PM the MODERATORS.





FORUM BREAKDOWN



1st Gen CL (which is model year 1997-1999) has one main forum, which displays threads right there for you to see. This is for general discussion which does not fit into one of the four sub-forum categories. For those, here's a quick breakdown of them.

DIY & FAQ

Simply put, the Do-It-Yourself and Frequently Asked Questions forum. Looking to make a custom grill? Does your steering wheel look like the dog chewed on it, and you need to replace it? Look it up here. If it's not there, we have a request thread, maybe someone out there is thinking the same thing!

PHOTOGRAPH GALLERY

Have some pics of the car you want to put up, put em here. There's already a sticky thread with links to post cars by color. But no pics of people, there's already a thread for that. Just scroll to the bottom of this page.

PROBLEMS & FIXES

Car not running right, can't understand why your wheel is pulling to the left? If you can't find the answer, post a thread here, we have some knowledgeable members who can help.

TIRES, WHEELS, & SUSPENSION

Looking for an opinion on which wheels to get? Want to see what suspension setup has worked for others? Got a question? Visit here.
