Hey I was wondering what kind of antifreeze I would use and the capacity of the cooling system. Thanks!

Use original honda coolant. It already comes pre-mixed.

For a simple drain and fill, a gallon (a jug) is typically all you need.

Alright thanks but I need to replace the radiator and when I am at it replace the thermostat also. So I only need a gallon? Thanks

Yes a gallon should be sufficient enough. If you are a bit worried and want to have a spare jug of coolant kicking around, you can get two. But typically one jug will be enough for a radiator replacement.
