  • Painting Civic GX

    I am going to get my Civic GX painted and was wondering if there are any pre-cautions?

    I couldn't locate the thread, but there was just a posting about warning the paint shop not to bake the paint in the booth because temps over 200 degrees could vent the relief valve.

      Does the PRD release at both temp and pressure on just pressure? If just pressure then a half empty tank should not cause the PRD to release because the pressure should not go up that high because of the high temp in the oven.

      This should be a good question to ask Honda. Curtis, what's a good number to call them about this?

        I warned the owner of the shop where I had my repair done, but he seemed to already know and quoted me some figures on the subject (which, sorry I do not recall).

          I spoke to Honda today and there is a special proceedure when painting a GX. This must be followed if the car is to go into a heat booth to be "baked".

          I couldn't get specifics but was told that the service dept can get the details of how this must be done. If a GX dealer has a body shop (mine doesn't), all the better.

          Alan, in my service dept is off today but I'll try and get more detail when he returns.

            Most modern paints don't bake over 140 degrees.

              I found the following in the "Emergency Response Guide" for the Civic GX.

              On page 4 it reads:

              The fuel tank also has an internal pressure relief
              device to release all CNG if the temperature in
              the tank exceeds 216ºF (102ºC). When this
              device is activated, the CNG is routed out of the
              car through a pressure relief outlet on the right of
              the CNG manual shutoff valve.

              So in theory you could bake in a 200 degree oven but why take the chance.
