Who's car is this? They beat me to it three years ago.

So I was surfing tunerzine.com and found a picture that was taken back in 2005 at the elite summer nationals. It's an image of a 7th gen with the same exact body kit I bought and am still trying to get fitted to my car. I'm just shocked honestly, because I never thought that anyone else would try to do something like that. Serves me right for trying to be different, finding out that someone else already did it three years ago. I'm super jealous though, seriously, because it looks great. It looks way better then I installed my kit. I'd like to give props to the owner of this car, where ever they may be.

Damn now i'll just have to do something else!

if you could a few more pics of the kit, im sure we could better judge how it looks, but i wouldn't say its terrible, but then again this is a really shitty angle

^Im not quite sure what you mean by that, but that's the only picture they have of it.

I just had a realization a minute ago. I don't care if someone else has what I want, I should be doing it because I like it, not because it's rare, or because no one else has it! I'm going to keep on doing what I was going to do! YEA!

Or you could just stay away from body kits in general =P

What kind of kit is it and why isnt it fitting- was it made for another car orig or something?

Right, that is always and option. Im going to stick with the kit though.

Yes, it's a design that fits the RSX, but not made for the civic. It's ok though Because I just have to finally admit that I can't do it. and I need to take it to a shop. Because I don't have a garage any more.

Heh, I'm for sure going to do one better. minus the gay crap.

Gearbox, I thought about molding, but I decided not to, because I like to take the skirts off to get a jack stand under it and take the wheels off at home and stuff. reg maint.

Re: Who's car is this? They beat me to it three years ago.

Whoa, thanks for hookin the info up. That's just, mad cool. I'm happy and frustrated at the same time! I feel like I've been putting so much time and effort into this only to find out that I didn't have to put all that much into it. Oh well, I'm just kind of at a loss for words right now. I don't know if I should just buy the new one, or keep going with what I have, seems kinda like it would be more economical if I just bought the new one, but then the old bumper and the newer old bumper would be trash I guess..... whatev.
