Smile the life of my car (pics)

Wanted to make a thread of the changes my car's gone through. Was my first car, nothing special. Just making the best out of what i had


Phase one - My new Civ! Fresh from the lot



Phase two - got a little ricey
Foglights and Rims (had a set of 17s before these, but never took pics of them on)

Altezzas




Phase two and a half - got rid of altezzas but added...
halo projectors and grill

New rims and quarterwindowONLY tint (hahaha christ) bodymatching trunk trim & door handles too



Phase 3 - I think my car looked its best around this time
oem headlights and drop springs.

2004 taillights that i modified



Phase four - back to stock (steelies, springs, taillights)




I did some stuff on the inside too, but I'm pretty much done. Who knows - I might get an itching for a new set of rims next Spring.


Phase five - all out

well that was a looooong year of being stock. and it sucked too. I couldnt hold out any longer... I couldnt deny myself of my hobby... I couldnt let her look so plain any longer. So here's my car in all her glory -

DropZone springs - dropped 2" (rear sags a bit)
BSA "333" - 17s black w/ polished lip
Kumho Ecsta AST - 205/45/17 (allweathers but very quiet on good pavement)
other miscellaneous outer apparel




special thanks to the lc and sinisterdexter for taking the pics



FINAL PHASE - singled out by cops & got ticket ("running red light"). SOOOO went back to stock. staying stock until trade-in for next car

The tail lights looks great, how come you put everything back to stock? IMO I think the car would of looked better without the black bra over the front.

it isnt tape. I bought a pair of 2004 taillights. Then I used a Dremel to cut away the portion of the red plastic lens, that was directly over the reflectors in the taillight housing. Then i cut the same amount of clear lens away from the pair of donut altezzas i used to have on the car, and i put that on the 2004 taillight where I cut the portion off of.

2004 coupe taillight


donut altezza lens section that i cut off


i cut off same amount from 2004 taillight, and glued on the altezza lens section


bordered to cover up glue, clearcoated.


its not a hard project if you do a little homework and like working with your hands helps too.
