After 2 years and $1700, I'm done (56K maybe)

I just dropped my car Saturday, and I decided to give her a good wash today.
I have accomplished all of my goals for the car (except maybe a strut bar), so I'm going to give a little before and after.

I would take those splash guards off. It's free, and looks much cleaner IMO.

if you're going for a "slightly" modded car then yeah, you're done. if not then you might want to delete this thread. and take the splash guards off while you're at it. it looks good none the less.

Shew i wish i could say that i was done, but i just can't stop. Not sure if you can ever be "DONE" but you can call it quits. I would suggest painting the drums black and the front calipers, that will clean them up a bit and not make them look as bad. And while your at it, remove the mud guards, that shouldn't be more than $5-$10 of work and will make a difference.

this is a daily driver, so the mud guards stay. also, I'm not entering any shows or anything so I'm not adding any weight with any lips or body kit. I am done though. I think that it'll be a fun and economical DD. performance for this car is useless, so I just focused on some fun suspension goodies. I'm 22, so I don't want to pull up to my friend's houses or work in a loud riced out civic. You gotta know when to call it quits and focus on your family. I find happiness at church and just mod the car for fun. a car will never make you happy.

you have done an exceptionally nice job with your car drew. the fact that you have shown restraint in certain areas is what has made it so appealing. that is rarely found in very modded cars...i don't want to spend any money on my car that i regret, so i'm stopping here.
