Why no posts? What's everyone planning?

Just curious to see why there aren't really too many new posts? The member's rides forum is usually the most popular to my knowledge.

What is everyone's plans/projects their working on right now?

For me, it's complete exterior overhaul, paint, wheels, hood, trunk, headlights, tail lights, side view mirrors plastic trim etc... no dough, no go right right now.

How bout you?

Nice! SSR's are sweet action! Hm, red badges always a plus. Ya! I think having a sound system is one of the most fun things to have in a car. Sounds like you're headed the right direction.

Ya, I saw you going crazy with those HID's look great though! I think the little stuff is annoying too, but once you get it done it's a ton better.

Re: Why no posts? What's everyone planning?

Repainting my car because of little scratches here and there (people hate to see a new paint job so they just end up keying your car). Last weekend I actually installed 4300K HIDs in my non-projector headlights its hella bright but maybe a retrofit is needed down the line. Planning to drop the car but I still have to do alot of reading on that.

^Cool. I think it's safe to say it's the single biggest thing I miss about my civic. Not having a sound system.

Re: Why no posts? What's everyone planning?

Rear Sway
Shifter Cable Bushings
Body Work
Shocks/Struts and Springs
Windows Tinted
05' Taillight Swap
New OEM Headlamps
16" Wheels/Tires
Gas shocks in the trunk
ICE needs some work
Trunk setup needs work
Axle Back
LED work inside
Oil Change
Intake Filter Cleaning
Fuel System Cleaning
Coolant change
New Radiator Cap
New Heater Hoses
And I have to see if I can drill out a bolt that broke off on the little gas/trunk lever.

Believe it or not I want this stuff done by the end of May. So I have a nice summer ride. Should be interesting because I'm now working Saturdays until memorial day.

Re: Why no posts? What's everyone planning?

Picking up a lip kit and new front bumper, debating on whether i should get a re-spray or a whole new paint job... after the winter you start to notice all sorts of little dents and dings, As well as a new header and possibly camshaft, but first things first... need the timing belt done.

Re: Why no posts? What's everyone planning?

Minorc, although more expensive I think you should get a full new paint job, either you can change the color, or just get it re-done because it'll keep it newer and hold the resale value.

Re: Why no posts? What's everyone planning?

ya paint really is but i think im doin okay because a guy i know is a pro painter and he has a garage that he can paint most little stuff in. So far i have my rear lip done and getting front lip done soon. Then i'll finally get to put my complete lip kit on. I can't wait. And I just picked up a cf hood last week so we're hopefully going to sand that down and fix everything in it before we reclear it and it looks like new. Hows ur project comin along eyger?
