Hey guys I just finished another one ever so much fun mod....the JDM Engine Push Start Button.

Tonight we did one for antoher one of my RSX friends who came to visit us.

One is going on Ebay right now for $100, buy it now $150...I only paid $50.

Someone PM'd me about this so I thought mabye other RSXer's would be intersted on how to do this.

HondaDC5 my fiance' and me do most of the mods together we work as a team.

Here's a pic. of the final result...

If you have any questions PM HondaDC5 or myself.

Later...Jennifer :wavey:

what'd you get for $50? i thought the button itself can be found for around $30-40, plus the relay and wires. It looks very nice, how'd you go about doing all that to the button console, show some pics in the making!

Step 10 ~ Drill the hole, start at the front. Be careful not to split the Bondo, make sure it's cured. Dont rush doing this and it's messy.

Step 11 ~ Obtain a dremel with a sanding bit. Sand the hole front and back to the size of the buton. Start slowly take off little at a time, don't take off too much. Dont push switch in so hard you crack the Bondo, should be snug but don't force it.

Step 12 ~ Once everything fits, prime it the color of your choice. I did Krylon Satin Black. Do a couple coats and let it dry. Then fit swtich in there and hook it up.
