Re: New pics of my ride...hope i dont get flamed like last time

ya droppin it and repainting brake calipers are my next mods then i'll go to car audio and fiberglass my trunk. Rite now im painting my interior tastefully with silver. And my friend said that he would sell me some racing seats pretty cheap but i dunno if i wanna get cheap ones. I kinda want rsx-s ones. Performancewise i have nothing really. I have an exhaust thats sittin in my garage and an intake and a few other little things. I still live at home with my mom and im only 17 so she gets mad wen i get anything performance based.

Re: New pics of my ride...hope i dont get flamed like last time

Definitely needs to be lowered so im glad ur gettin that done! not a fan of the wing tho...maybe it will look diff lowered! and since u have black accents...TINTS would make a big difference and bring out alot of that black! So far so good...but i wouldn't go color crazy with the calipers...to much color throws off the car! IMO...but clean homie

Good job so far. He is obviously going for the 'Show Car' look not "jdm" so the spoiler is fine. Aslong as it's not a huge aluminum wing.

I would go for the whole silver&black Look/theme. Smoked tails, black tints, Etc.. but dont over do it Definately needs a drop.

You let others dictate how you modify your car? For shame.....if you like the altezzas, put them back on.

Yea that's true. Do what you want with your ride. Just keep it clean!

imo, smoke out your chrome altezzas & put them back on the car or get 04/05OEM tails. Smoked tails or 04/05 OEM ftw!

Re: New pics of my ride...hope i dont get flamed like last time

i bought the spoiler off sTuNNa and i got the deal of a lifetime. I liked the altezzas until i took them off and tried the stock ones back on. Now i definantly love the stock look. Im gonna smoke out the tails soon. Im prolly gonna put my old mirrors back on. Those m3 mirrors blow a$$. As for the lips they are both painted nighthawk black. So is my grill. I think im gonna keep the front lip black and do a 2tone black and silver on the back lip so the bottom where the things kinda stick out by the exhaust that will saty balck and the rest will be silver. Then i mite get some real basic sideskirts like el sides. Something really really basic. My windows are tinted but its really hard to tell in those pics. My backseat windows are actually as dark as you can go legally and my fronts are pretty dark too but the photos were at night so its hard to tell. As for how i taped off my headlights. I taped off the turn signal section, and i taped off the circle. Then i left exposed the line between the reflector and the turn signal. Then i taped off everything in the bottom section with the reflector except the chrome that is exposed. So i left the section behind the reflector chrome. its not the cleanest blackout job but it looks good from a distance. IMO blackouts never turn out perfect unless you paint everything. Ya im goin for a more showy look. Im kinda close to jdm now tho. IT beats my last idea which was to put on my bodykit. I had a cwest bodykit but decided agianst it cuz canadian witners suck. Thats also why i got coilovers so i could bring it up in the winter. And brakes im paintin black. Blue looks gay i only did them blue cuz i was curious about what they would look like. O and next year im either gettin it resprayed silver OR changin er up to a metallic orange. and goin metallic orange and black.

Re: New pics of my ride...hope i dont get flamed like last time

Car is going in the right direction if it was mine. Heres somethings i would do:

Blast your drums and repaint them flat black w/ primer before.
Get the lips painted (Obviously)
Buy the 04 taillights (Its a simple conversion that includes cutting a couple pieces of socket)
You already have the drop covered (Tein Coils I assume)
leave the engine stock except for exhaust (For show purposes only Duh)
Ride it until you hit 230,000 then have a buy a F4i, or CBR600


Goodluck!

Re: New pics of my ride...hope i dont get flamed like last time

i <3 my spoiler. It is not gay at all. It looks great. And honestly i didnt like the black lips at first but i think im gonna keep my front lip black. I mite repaint it black. And my car needs some bodywork fixed. My dad got in an accident with it like a year ago and put like spider cracks in the front bumper so it needs a repaint but the lip kinda covers some of it. My hood also needs a repaint. I dont want 04 tails cuz theyr'e too expensive. And EDFC would be nice but i pretty much blew my wad on the tein flex coilovers. And honestly it takes like 2 min to get out of the car and adjust the dampening levels. Its not worth the $400 IMO. Besides i think i'd rather save that money up for stuff i need like a paint job. Or i mite get a Nitrous bottle and mount it in the trunk wen i fiberglass my trunk. That would look pretty sweet. But the coilovers I got an amazing deal on them tho. THey look brand new but i bought them used. I got them from a guy who had them on his hardcore audio/video show car. He had em on his car for 3 months.


update i was trying to install my exhaust and im a total n00b at exhaust work. Its just an axleback cuz i have an lx so a catback is a waste of money anyways and i dont have enuff $$$$ for a headers back. Anyways tried to take off my stock muffler broke both bolts clean off got shafted $30 at the stealership cuz they're the only place that sells replacement bolts and now i need to spend another $20 to get those bolts out. Heres a suggestion pay the $30 and get it done at mufflerman and save urself from having to drive around for 2 days with no muffler because all the shops are too busy and the ones that arent want $80/hr.
