**Progression of My RSX since Day 1**

Bought my 02 RSX Type-S in November of 2009 from a fellow member and my good friend 02 i-vtec:

Needed a lot of work, Although the lip kit was authentic, it didn't sit right. The car was repainted shitty, you can see primer through the paint at some points. It was terrible. Slowly made progression, such as 09 SI wheels, ARC Magic DC2 Winglets and small things here and there. I had 1 car at the time, so that winter, killed me inside to drive her like this:

I enjoyed driving my car around for a few months until April came around in 2010, I got in an accident that almost totaled it.

Long story short, I was on my way to a car show, crossing the Newburgh-Beacon bridge in NY in the far right cut off from a riced out prelude, who spoke shit all the time about me, from the middle lane, I switched to the middle lane to go around him and noticed the car that cut me off was going around a slower moving vehicle, so I switched back into the right lane. My back end kicked out, hit the wall going roughly 75mph, caught about 2-3 ft of air (according to witnesses) My car slammed back to the ground, I lost steering because I broke the steering column and such, hooked left and got T-Boned by an 07 Civic...I'm thankful it wasn't a truck because I knew I would have been dead. The door panel came off and bruised my left arm/shoulder. Doesn't look that bad, but here's the aftermath photos:

Over $7,500 in damage, my car was fucked up. The pictures don't do justice. So while in the shop, I got new front and rear bumpers, rims, and so on. I also got it repainted.

Finished product:

I was happy that it wasn't totaled. I saved up a lot of money, got Kpro and upgraded to the RBC Intake Manifold.

Then in the summer of 2011, leaving a friend's house I couldn't see shit because it was pouring...and backed into their gate/fence :face:

Got that all repaired...shortly after, for the winter of 2012, I did the 06 Front End conversion with a mugen lip and Varrstoen ES220s 17x9+22 dropped on Progress Suspension.

Start of the 2013 build...

Nice work on the car and the vid,never been a fan of purple,but love the look of the valve cover.
Yeah same here...I guess purple was a little different when I did it, but I'm changing it now. Hopefully it will go better. Thank you though!

Nice car :)
Wrecking usually always seems to turn out better...
Someone wrecked my old car which is why I has the money to get a RSX :p
