My Civic's Story

I think its my turn to show my pictorial of my civic.

October 2007, picked up the car all dirty, washed it all up. discovered it was covered in dents and stone chips.
came with a sh**ty cd player, but it did the job for the time being.







first mod that came was a new cd/mp3 player (Sony Xplod CDX-GT510), nothing major, but did enjoy the mp3/wma capability.



winter came and my car transformed into this:



as winter went by, had the following replaced:

- new control arms
- new struts (stock)
- new ball joints
- new links

around march switched to my summer rims (on my bday, wanted to roll in style with friends, lol)





finally in april some modding began, started with H&R lowering springs and INJEN Short Ram Intake. followed very shortly with the black out housing for the headlights mod.





Then found a good deal on a Type-R rear lip, which got me started on the my lip kit, picked up a few days later Type-R skirts and the Altezza Grill





about a few weeks later picked up a new front bumper along with a Type-B front lip



finally my car went to the body shop to get all dents fixed, trunk shaved, mould the front lip to the front bumper, and some more body work





in between i got my hands on an OEM spoiler, dropped it off at the body shop, got that painted and installed as well, and today i picked up the car, finally after 2 weeks of waiting for it.








i hope you like it so far.

I agree wheels seem to stand out like a sore thumb but the rest is sweet. Paint looks real nice.

post some pics of your car, i'd like to see that


btw, thanks to everyone for the input, i appreciate your opinions, but for now i'm planning to leave those rims, they will pull away attention from my non-impressive brakes
besides, what i have now are 17's and the spring combo might not look low enough, for after winters go on, the car will sit lower anyways, and with our winters in canada, really cant afford to go any lower, i'll be plowing my street like that.

was thinking to get exhaust just to fill in that hole in the rear lip, but i dont want anything noisy, something quiet.

Re: My Civic's Story

well look forward to trimming around that lip! I have a greddy SP2 and I had to shave a large portion of the opening off because it kept hitting the tip of the muffler. and thanks a lot, if I ever do get a spoiler it'll have to be something that sits low, OEM is too high for me.
