    Hey so I posted my pics in another thread, but I wanted to know what you guys think of my car. I got a b16 in it with some mods.

    In case anyone wants to know it was a cut and weld job, not very hard, and everything matches up pretty good. let me know what you think.

    Scroll down if you want pics of the engine bay

    I'm not a big fan of front end conversions but it looks like you did a good job of making the panels match up ^_^.

    Like I said in the other thread, I'm not a big fan of it, but it looks like a clean conversion at least! :thumbsup: I've seen much worse looking things on Hondas...

    That looks nice! great job. The lines flow well and everything. Im not a big fan of that integra front end, but it looks no worst on your car than on an integra.

    What is the difference between this and a body kit? Because to me if you put a kit or do a front end conversion you can't really be a fan of the car itself. You completely change the car so its no longer a civic really. I dunno, it does look clean but i would of just bought an integra :rolleyes:

    It looks clean and flows but I feel dirty looking at it.

    you did a good job of making it look legit, but that wing on the hatch i think kinda makes it look ricish. if that's a word. same with the hood pins.

    What's with the stupid Spoon socks around the brake and clutch reservoirs?

    Oh and are the holes in the rear bumper really necessary?

    Probally not for him, but good for diffusing air caught up in the rear bumper though. They look like shit but remind me of the days when the import scene was in it's younger years. "STR" ring a bell??? They debuted on a certain STR sponserd ( JG engine dynamics as well ) record breaking blue/yellow/white CRX and became boil-n-bag rice within a year. I miss those days.

    Just curious as to the purpose they serve, or the lack thereof. Especially since one of them is just like barely hanging there.

    Other than that the conversion looks nice, not sure how safe it is but :thumbsup:
