Out the paint shop

Well I got my car out the shop..... here are some pictures.
The pictures really suck, I took them in my driveway because it was about to rain. I will have some better pictures later.

Re: Out the paint shop

Thanks for the comments. The car is a show car (i don't drive around with a green civic all the time, i drive that white car in the background ), but I tried to keep the body as clean and simple as possible.

Haha yea. The car was wrecked when I got it, so all the airbags were deployed. I just never got around to getting a new steering wheel. I plan to get one after I finish my motor build.

Re: Out the paint shop

^^^^ My brother and I built the car. He always like the shaved plate thing, so he decided to do it. I really really didn't want to do it, but he did it anyway.......... w/e it came out nice and it cleaned up the car a lil bit.. so I like.

My brother deals with the body work. I deal with the engine work. I usually try to talk him out of getting to crazy with the body stuff and try to get him to keep it nice and clean....... so ^^^^ thats what we came up with

And thats my life story

It's a manual, has a clutch pedal.

Car flows together real well, I'd have to get use to that green. Not my choice but hey its different, and that gets attention.

Re: Out the paint shop

Yea well I had Z3 fenders, but one of the inserts flew off while I was driving lol. I just took them out, and I planning on putting the OEM fenders back on but I just haven't got around to it.

Yea the same shop did the interior. I just took all the interior out sand and primed it and gave it to my painter

The car was an automatic, but I did a manual swap

The trunk area I just have an 8" fosgate he series (i think) and a fosgate 1000rms mono amp


Ummm.... as far as engine mods. Right now I am boosting 8psi. And my turbo set up:
PCS XFC
Garret t3/t4 a.r.63
dezod mani
dezod down pipe
tial wastegate
ebay intercooler
custom intercooler piping
greddy typeR BOV
custom dual 2.25" exhaust



some old pics:




Yes resale is would be a bitch, thats why I will be the 2nd and last owner lol

THANKS FOR THE COMMENTS EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!

even if it is green it's still probably pretty quick. You'll get respect for that if nothing else.

Whats up Paul. I take it the move went well??

I still don't really know whats wrong with the car, but I haven't really had much time to play around with the car, it went into the pait shop a couple days after you tuned it. Im pretty much stumped. Sometimes it runs perfect and then two seconds later the car will overheat . I dono, but I need to figure it out befor I make the drive up to orlando for HIN.

Sorry again for having the car break down in the middle of no where. lol I still feel really bad about that. Good luck at your new location. And I will be getting at you soon for parts for my motor build
