Yeah altezas are pretty bad but if u dig em that's u. Gauge faces are obnoxious though but I hate white gauge faces for the most part lol. Why'd u get n automatic one?

Other yhan that not a bad base. Welcome

Drop it, lose the tail lights, and those decals...??? Really? Looks like you have a small bit of body rust on the right side by the bumper.

Looks like a solid base. Make it yours!

Good base, but hopefully you'll make some changes.

Yeah, I also hate the tails myself haha they came with the car, same with the gauge faces. I want to drop it and have a few future plans in mind. It will be a slow build, but it will all come through eventually. Thanks for your thoughts guys!

hey, what do you guys think i should with my wheels? i wanna keep them since they have pretty new tires on them, i was thinking about sanding them down and painting them. thoughts? color ideas? black possibly

Def change the lights and lose the decals. I wouldn't do black for those rims, gunmetal maybe! Lots of potential tho! Good luck and have fun! ( In the end it's all personal preference)

ejayeight
09-28-2011, 09:45 PM
I like the thought of gunmetal man! I think im gonna keep my vtec decals on there for a bit, i like the way they look

ejayeight
09-28-2011, 09:48 PM
And yeah im getting rid of my tails as soon as some more pay checks roll in haha they do the job for now but i hate the way they look. also need to touch up a tiny bit of rust, paint my side skirts and paint my valve cover

Great platform to work off of. Very clean base. I'm not a fan of the tails or the gauge cluster but to each his own.

Sweet. I love goodies on my doorstep when I get home. Just watch the quality of this eBay brand stuff... my tails are chipping away from the inside... like the very edge of the chrome inside the clear lenses is peeling off and you can see it through the glass. Can't really notice it, but it happens.

Throw up some shots when you get them on!

Sorry, couldn't upload pics tonight. And I'm gonna be in Florida for the week so no new updates this week. As soon as I get back friday I'll upload some pics with the new tail lights. They look so much more jdm haha. Also repainted today. Went great. Gonna let them dry while I'm gone and will have pics up when I get back

Oh yes, she will be lowered. Gonna wait till christmas to get some money. Gonna keep my d for now cause its really reliable, since it is my daily

I need some advice for lowering. I'm definitely getting coilovers but I'm not sure what exactly to get. It will always be a daily driver so i don't need anything built for track racing. Just something reliable thats not too expensive. I was looking at skunk2 coil sleeves and shocks. Or should i just go with a whole coilover system? I'm looking to lower it about 2-2.5"

a lot people seem to like the f&f coilovers, thats what im more than likely getting when i lower. They pretty cheap as well.

ImportFan1
11-16-2011, 10:15 PM
Personally I would go with the full coilover system as I have had both. Yes you will pay more but you are getting a better product typically. Also, suspension is not something to go cheap on. You will get what you pay for and if you cheap out you will regret it down the road.

ejayeight
11-16-2011, 10:36 PM
Yeah I know I'm getting what I pay for. I didn't mean like ebay shit cheap lol I meant like $600-700 or so. Which I would hope would get me something with pretty good quality

If you are interested, one of our site sponsors has Koni's on sale right now. I had these and loved them. I had them paired with Skunk2 sleeves.

How was the setup for you?

ImportFan1
11-17-2011, 07:53 PM
Good from what I remember until I hit a pothole going about 75 on the highway and put my control arm through my strut tower mount. This is going back about 6-7 years.

ejayeight
11-17-2011, 09:14 PM
That setup would be in my price range too. Were the skunk sleeves pretty good also?

Thanks for all the help guys. It's really helping to narrow it down. Sounds to me like this might just be the setup for me
