wuts up clubrsx ...... this is my 1st show of both of my rsx hope u guys like it let me kno wut u guys think......

ok let me start from the beginning when i got my 1st car about 4 years ago when i was 17...... a 1995 civic automatic ..... yes i was into body kits but i liked this body kit because it was simple not exaggerated..... i kno i kno its ricy but come on every1 goes thru that stage after watching fast and furious =]








ok so after i got the car and put the body kit on i wanted to make my car look like a car from fast and furious and custom the inside
did all the work my self and i love how it came out



a few month later i got my 1st rsx base automatic ......... my dream car ......
SORRY FOR THE CRAPY PIKS



honestly i was not a fan of the color but hay it was a gift from ma mom ..... mom i love u best women in the world :love:

ok so after getting the car i went a bout a lip kit, hids, and a fujita intake for it.... at that moment i was in love with the kit thought mu car was the best car in the world... again went a lil over bord





after few month of being with the kit i was getting sick of it so my car went thru a dramatic change the week before Honda day ... went all out and came up with this as a finishing project .... brand new paint job .... wanted to go a bit different from all other blue rsx so i went with si blue put on some JDM fogs, type r lip, type r wing and iebac lowering spings



see me with the white :laughing:








than me and my boy went out and took piks of both of our cars






late night cruise with friends ..... out to the races



left my car sleeping in the street 1 night and my type r lip was gone as u can see ..... out to the races again



After 2 years with my base auto rsx i was getting tiered of staying behind .... all of my friends had type s but me so i went on a hunt to buy 1 ..... sadly in order for me to get the type s i had to sell my base .....then came mom to the rescue she saw the sadness in me cuzz i was selling my baby and she offered to give me the money so i could keep it and buy the type s also ..... so i went off and bout my self a 05 type s for very cheep off some old guy that had her in his back yard for over a year she was a little banged up yes but that didnt stop me i looked at it like a new project that i was going to work hard in

this is wen i 1st got her .... not much damage just needed new wind shield a new back side window and new rims cuzz one of the rims it came with was cracked





this was a few month ago ... got some fogs

SORRY FOR THE CRAPPY PIK IT WAS TAKEN WITH A SIDEKICK


about 2 weeks ago i got these from a fellow clubrsx member
need to repaint and buy center caps no big deal (ITR RIMS) but i still couldn't wait and juss thru those babies on will post up picks soon of the type s with the ITR RIMS


UPDATE 3-29-10

You don't need two threads for the same thing... clean none the less. Went through a rice phase though lol... the body kit for your first rsx was ugly as shit.

update

UPDATE 1-5-12 !!!!!!!!!!!!



alot has changed since last time i did an update .... to make a long story short i couldnt pass the salvage inspection for the mm 05 06 rsx so i got my self a rolling 02 04 shell and swapped everything from the 05 06 rsx to the 02 04 rsx shell .... from exterior to interior and motor swapp of course and since the motor was already out i went ahead and got my turbo kit installed =]

ladies and gents let me introduce u to BENDER !!!!

this is how the car looked wen i got it but with out the rims and the motor of course ... it was a really clean rolling shell ... it came with rsx stockys not the type rs



pick of wen the swapped was beeing put on bender !!!! K20z1 motor



here wen the motor and turbo was done



after motor and kit was done went out to get tuned and made this on a stock k20z1



i was very happy with my numbers so on to making bender look nice =] so i started with these bad boys



more power means better brake so i got some brembos and dropped bender on some progress coils



went and picked up a set of brand new type r tails .... cost me a pretty penny but fuk it i wanted them bad



went ahead and got my self a pare of m45 proctors







pick up a mugen hood from a good buddy of mines



then me and my boy started doin my conversion



heres bender at the shop after gettin the bumpers and hood painted





1st day out after paint shop



wanted to be a bit different from alot of ppl so instead of getting my hood cf i went and got my self a cf trunk





again went a little different and instead of gettin integra and type r badges ..... i got my self a nice little illest badge for my rear



here a sneak peak





after a good 6 month of waiting i got my chargespeed bottom line lip kit .... money well spent



went and got my self an aspec front and rear lip from another good fren and heres a preview of wut i have come up with =]

introducing the new and improve BENDER









Up next for bender .... shave and tuck ....... new rims stay tune ..... hope u guys enjoys reading about my rsx history

new beginings

UPDATE 2-3-2015 !!!!!

so its been a long time since last time i actually took the time to update my show-off been busy with work and other priorities .... so i diciced to switch it up a bit and really get into the whole show car thing

as u can see on the pic did some sheet metal on the bay and deleted that annoying bracket on the right side that holds the fuse box ... I'm really trying to achieve that smooth look so deleting that bracket was a must

also want to say that all the work has been done by bulletrsx at his shop bullet-autoworks .... everyone in new york go check him out .... RSX GOD!!!!!




now off to paint shop




bys bumper converted ..... yes yes another bys .... i like the bumper had it for a couple of years now just never got around to to actually use it till now


cooking that paint


benders new color AZTEC GREEN PEARL .... wanted to stay away from the rsx basic colors but i still wanted to keep the color a honda color so i went with the color the 1995 civic EG comes in ... these pic don't do justice makes the car looks little blue looks a lot better in person sorry for the crappy pics guys







and as for the bay !!!! no bracket looks better simple and clean !!!!!!



so wuts a bay with any nice bling ..... went ahead and got some triple chrome ... valve cover and rbc triple chrome and to match that got my work XD9s polish and my brembos powder coated white





so far heres wut i have come up wit ..... car is still a working progress ... a lot more stuff needs to be done .... hope u guys like it
