Story
Bought the car 2 years ago, March 29th 2011
Base 5 speed manual with 122K on Odometer and 80K on the engine. Came with AEM V2 intake, Skunk2 Catback exhaust, DC Race Header
As you can see the car came with bloody stripes and stupid acura stickers.







First thing I did was take off those stickers. THE STRIPES WOULDNT COME OFF. body Shop basically told me whoever owned the car before, crack the fenders and used a cheap black compound to seal the crack. and used stickers to make it look intentional.


Acura stickers on the bumper were covering cracks. and the bumper one side had chicken wire holding the broken tab in. Had the bumper COMPLETELY replaced. So no more acura stickers

Next thing I did was do the DIY black housing.

October 2011
After that, I got the Type R front and Rear Lips, painted




Found a Honda vinyl for the rsx off craigslist. Also got the red door inserts. And a free blox shift knob from a friend. did the $2 diy bottle cap/bushing method to hold my shift boot up. Friend also gave me red mats for christmas. And Mugen pedals




Decided I wanted a mild drop, So I ordered Stagg Struts (200 for all four new) and Tein H-techs. Install wasnt hard at all


Then I finally got fog lights. Wasn't too fun cutting the holes, and the wiring harness crapped out so I straight wired it to the 1st click for the lights.





After that, I painted my wheels bronze




Girlfriend also gave me Red Acura emblems for christmas so i slapped them on, eventually took them off.




So it was time for a photoshoot


November 2011
I Picked up a set of XXR's with 45 offset for a deal. I also would eventually sell these lol.


And used the xxr's to get eibach coilovers


The Type R lips became discolored and cracked so I eventually sold those and drove lipless on coils








Look at the links on my mods/update list at the beginning of this post for further updates

Good start. The black stripes are really bothering me though.
Yeah they bother me too, not to the point where I want to murder the fenders though. Quote to get them sanded, re bondo-d and re painted and color blended into the bumper and door was $400. I have a saving set aside for that sole cause. But im not going to plunder anything into it all at once. that fund will get there lol.
