Anyways the car is better than ever, if I may be so blunt. The car was down for two weeks with a cracked cylinder head, it's slowly coming back to life. New rebuilt OEM (top to bottom, and I'm not exaggerating by any means) cylinder head, 16x7" ET25 ROH wheels, 225/45/16 Goodyear F1's / Kumho 712's, and I finally painted the lip again. All sorts of other tricks sitting around my house here, plus I owe MarkD some dyno time.

Thanks for looking guys.

Nice to see you're back in the game.

I love the second pic. The almost-perfect symmetry is very nice.

actually I think its nicer black, cuz its more flush. But he has to rewire them so they don't stay on all the time.

You all care too much.

Nice to know the only thing people find to knock is the damn signal wiring though, I must be doing something right with the rest of the car. *wiggle*

Well, there's also having a front plate, but you can't do much about that. ;)

Terry I agree with you, I normally like everything to be one color, but for some reason I think the black lip looks better on Jays car maybe because he has black moldings

It's a pedestrian walkway in the corner of the La Paloma plaza. I drove through it last year during a meet, always meant to get back there for some cool pics. I was getting some ****ED UP looks from people walking around, haha!

And this is the 2nd lip since that day. It was black since I got it in May, just painted it 308 last week. It looks so much better now, God I hate black lips.

T-Dot's uncle and him did it for me, good guys. I almost towed it to you guys but your shop is way too damn busy all the time man. Your dad is gonna blow up on everyone one day, cussing every customer with stupid questions.

Show us a pic of your rims! Are they black? You should get a thin red line around the edge of a lip, theres a red Civic driving around my neighbourhood, I swear, it's the nicest I have ever seen.

Something like this, you should do :D

I would if they were nice rims, but they're not. They're there to hold my 225's up and not bend, and that's about where I stop caring.

But seriously, I have thought about it, and do like the idea.

I don't see painting calipers unless they were actually worth showing off (4-piston V12 binders, anyone?), and if I did that I'd go five bolt and wouldn't have these rims anyways. :P

If the car is not rusted out ,a fresh engine work is always good thing to do.
Nice car!
