What are you referring to with "get paneling"? Can you elaborate?

I'm guessing he's talking about the fender and under body splash guards.

Do me a favor.From now on don't care what other people think about your car. Do what YOU want to your car. Who gives a damn what other people think about it.

I don't think they make them for the Integra. It isn't really necessary though. If you are trying to clean up ten years of crap under the hood, then that is one thing, but maintaining it on a regular basis is the solution to keeping the engine clean. Any engine can be kept clean if you pop the hood and clean it two or three times a year. Even new cars with total under body splash guards get dirty under the hood, so it isn't going to prevent anything.

Honestly, if you care a lot about your Integra, don't drive it in the winter. I live in New York where they use just about every corrosive chemical under the sun to clear the roads. It is very common to just drive a $500 beater car in the winter that you don't care about rusting. Splash shields wont help anything, they just hold the salt in the car.

I bought a 2016 Charger brand new in December last year and didn't have enough funds for a winter beater until mid-January. Just the month and a half I drove it in the weather caused some of the hardware underneath the car to rust. The salt and chemicals will really do some serious damage to your car. If you don't have a choice, go through a car wash with the blaster for the bottom of the car whenever you get the chance.
