You dweebs can skip the novel.

Today's the day. I'm fed up with Facebook, the people, the politics, the marketplace... all of it. That being said I'm coming back to the forums. Car has gone through a plethora of changes over the years. But this is the car's current state. In my old age of 25 I've come to find out I'm sick of most aftermarket parts and went 95% OEM this time around!

Little background on myself. I've been around the chassis since 2005. I lurked the forums as soon as I was able to understand how to use a computer. I joined in 09, my father owned the car before me (22k Miles). I've owned the car since late 2010 (127k Miles). Been obsessed with this chassis since being a child and seeing the commercials, brochures, and cars on the showroom floor. I know these things inside and out and have owned a few others in the past 10 years. But this car specifically has been with me through it all (Currently 158k Miles). I have won so many awards with this thing and have done pretty much everything myself all the time. Mod list and Pics below!

Love the detail. Definitely a clean build. I had to delete myself from one of the FB groups because of such immature comments. People just want to argue about meaningless things.

Looks soooo amazing and clean man. I want to get mine to this level of cleanliness one day but I still have a long way to go. The body for mine came with a few dings and scratches here and there but the rust is a lot less than other dc5s where I live.

My type s is also silver, so this is a good example for me of the kind of look I'm going for.

Really great ride.

Love everything about this car. Really makes me want to find a set of ITR wheels.

Original paint?

Thanks!

Super clean and a good example, good to see you on the OG forum, getting tired of facebook groups myself
Appriciate it man! forums will always trump FB groups.

Man these new guys are ridiculous.

Thanks for the kind words. Tried to get all the little things I could jdm wise... still missing the push start and other odds and ends.

t's attention to detail that makes the difference. Well done.
Nice to see people notice the small details! Thanks

Between my father and I, we have really tried to keep it nice through the years. Cant wait to see yours progress!

looks awesome! OEM+ is the way to go for sure.
This is definitely my favorite look Ive done with the car! Thanks

Very nice work, love the passion that you have for your ride.
Im Honda/Acura for life. I like to consider myself more than a car guy.. I have a TRUE passion for Honda as a brand. Its all I own.

Love everything about this car. Really makes me want to find a set of ITR wheels.

Original paint?
Paint on most of the car is original or close too it. Really the only new paint is the front bumper, and DC5R lip kit, and wing.
Very nice. I'm not doing much more to mine, but it's a base so there's that. Very nice looking car though. 👍
Dont let it being a base stop you from doing what you want... I too have a base as well aside from this car and love it just as much.

There is a CLEAN ep3 on fb with low miles in silver, not sure if youre looking for a good example to start or something a little rough. Thanks for the kind words.

beautiful car man!
Thanks!

Flawless victory 👍

Welcome back, Sir!
Im here to stay!

Wow wow wow!! Definitely the look I’m going for! I’m picking up a silver one tomorrow if everything’s goes well!! Can’t wait!! 🕺🏻🕺🏻
Cant wait to see yours!

Your car looks great man! Where did you get most of the parts?
A lot of the parts came from ICB.. and a few of the bigger things I got local off of FB Market place.
