first thing first, PLEASEEEEEEE get a second exhaust quick, i hate it when cars have rear bumpers made for dual exhausts, but they have single exhausts, what color is that anyway?

2000 civic with a RSX 2.0L i-vtec motor swap.. they even swapped out the front frame mounts so that all the tranny and motor mounts will accept the new engine..

do you HAVE to have a chrome grill?
honestly, thats killing it for me, and you KNOW how much of a fan I've been of this project!

Also, what chrome rims did you get? something tasteful I hope.

looks very nice... there are only 3 spinners available for wheels with car offset's.. they're all for RWD truck offset's.

grill's gotta change, but you said it's gone...

See if you can get those door pillar's painted now while you have the chance....

What color is that by the way??... looks very close to what color I wanted to paint my car... I wanted to go a little darker though. What size flecks are those in the paint?

Looks really good though. Keep us posted!!

oh and btw, I'll give you call soon about those emblems...

Take care,
J

I think a set of colour matched wheels with prolished lip would look amazing on the car. Try to fit so 19's since it's a show car. I think Thinair old 19's would suit this car well.. Good luck car looks sick
