Hello... I used to have a 2000 Integra LS Sedan... it was sold last year... I picked up this 99' EJ8 for a steal. It's from Texas and has one owner... :cool:





She has some things done to her... everyone keeps telling me to get wheels. I think the hubcaps look fine... I'll change it up when I find something better looking than some run of the mill Rota's... my mind is straying towards some authentic Mugens or something... always had reps, I think I should try real deal for once :lol:

I have a side project so this is really just my DD...

I should've mentioned that I purchased this car 100% stock and spent a year compiling parts for it. Everything was done by me sans the alignment and exhaust work. I'd post up a mod list but I fear teh thieves. It's okay though, it has a complete stealth alarm install done by me and I'm pretty confident in it as well.

Welcome back dawg.

Definitely would look a million times better with wheels. I applaud you for being patient and waiting for some good rims instead of Rota's :like:. It looks damn clean too.

And are those Recaro's!!?!?

Yep, DC2 recaros... No replica parts this time around... except for my shift knob. I will hang myself before I pay the full price of an ARC shift knob. lol

I'm working on a 96 DX coupe shell I purchased from a friend for $400.00 bucks. I never really got to do anything crazy or different from my DD builds. I'm having the other car sent out for paint and rust repair sometime this year, as I am still acquiring parts for it. Hopefully in time it will eventually have a simple B-series build installed and some other random things added on. Just clean, simple, track inspired with a big emphasis on well fit body panels, clean paint, and overall enjoyment of the car. It won't be built to today's standards of being "hip" with offset wheels and whatnot... just want to have a car I can enjoy... with no AC, PS, or ABS :lol:

I'll make a build thread sometime this week (maybe). I'm at school right now, but I'll be home for thanksgiving and christmas break. I am in the process of cleaning and refurbishing the interior (each and every piece removed, cleaned, and re-installed) and the engine bay is being resprayed battleship gray or just a respray of gloss black.
