hey i want more ideas or projects that i can start?
any ideas ?
yah , idk about that im not into those, anything i can work on to get it a little faster?
Alright since I pretty much destroyed your other post and pissed everyone off, I can at least help you here.
Personally, I wouldnt use a body kit...they are a pain to make look great, besides...who needs them anyway.
Just get a lowering spring kit from andysautosport or somethin, and then throw on some 16's
If you really wanna do anything else just swap out your headlights/tail-lights....
I would pick a lowered car with aftermarket rims (not so big it looks like a hot-wheels car) over a car with a body-kit (which would be a waste of yer money) anyday of the week...
And to make it faster...best possible thing would be a turbo kit...I am kind of against NOS
If you cant afford a turbo or find one used, just focus on airflow...put a REAL exhaust on, not just a muffler....and get some porting done to your intake/head/etc...you can get some other bolt-ons but nothing else would be worth it if it's all choked up by stock exhuast
Btw, in your other posts you keep mentioning e-bay....it's always a little risky when you use e-bay...so my advice is to not reley on it as much....
andysautosport.com is a good place to find some parts...they have most of what you will want on their site, all different prices....and at least if you order from there you know yer going to get what you ordered and it's going to be in brand new condition....
probably the best thing you can do is to keep it clean. like spotlessly clean.even a bone stock car looks sharp if its clean and shiney. take bug and tar remover and get all the bugs off the hood and front bumper. take wax and grease remover ( not paint thinner it will soften or remove paint) and get all the road tar off the lower half of the car, especially the rocker panels ( the part of the body that is underneath the doors and lower edge of the front fenders) wax it good, buff the car if the paint shows any signs of swirl or scratches, and wax it. wire any plastic part down with protectant prior to waxing, the wax wont stick to the plastic and turn white.
headlights dull? buff em or replace em with clears.
i agree with statements above about the car looking boxy and not really body kit worthy. too much time and money for somthing that wont look right on the car.
id reccoment a factory rear spoiler if it doesnt already have one, they almost always look nice, and you can probably even find one the same color as the car in the junkyard. if it has a luggage rack on the trunk, take it off. may even consider swapping trunk lids for one that has a spoiler and no luggage rack if yours has a luggage rack and no spoiler- lot less work
replace the front facia with one that is from a higher model, like with factory fog lights etc if yours doesnt have them. maybe even a jdm front end if you can find one.
whatever you decide to do, do it properly, nothing looks worse than a hack job on what would otherwise be a decent looking car. small appearance mods look really nice when done properly compared to some flashy looking stuff that was just hacked onto the car. shoddy work looks shitty no matter what.
new name? huh. new body too because im a completely different person. ask a mod to check ip's - completely different state too.
might wana check your info before goin off on people.
I mean hes a new guy and you are already threatening him? Seriously?

God, what is with this wave of ignorance to hit HS?!?!!?! Hey, just curious, has this EVER happened this way since HS opened?
haha thank u new guy, i will thin kab out it
i no ever since i cam,e w=every one been bening meean to me
No, you know it's because you have pretty much two of the same thread up right? I mean, I can sympathize, since those d-bags got the other one closed, but come on. Do some research before you ask questions. It's always a good thing. And if you absolutely can't find your answer, then you can ask. People wouldn't flame you as bad.
Some of this is pretty common sense.
If you wanna work on cars the best thing to do is start looking over the technical articles, get yourself a factory service manual, and get to reading
The best resource you can use is your own brain.
I run mostly lil turbo cars. I have an assortment of little turbododges and I actually own a honda.
So go ahead and infer what you want
Well, you don't seem like a complete retard, so I don't think anyone'll have a problem with you.
So you piss off all your new members because of a couple trouble makers?
