    Hello All,
    Just wanted to show some pics of the new paint job my wife got me for the Honda for Christmas. The car was in bad shape paint wise before. And since it is a race car I didn't want to spend a lot. So, viola $250 later from maaco here she is! I"m actually very happy with this paint job for the price. I didn't have any body work fixed, just sand and paint. Just in time to start a new season of TTC with NASA this year! I'll be creating a separate build thread later.

    come on now... of course i knew :p

    where did the openings come from?? are they actual prefabs? or did you have to get the vents from something else then mold them in???

    very nice.. no point spending big bucks for a paint job on a race car.

    Now, if only there was a bad ass hondaswap banner on the car.........

    was it custom made or a premade kit?
    boltin or weld in??
    and did you sacrifice the dash to have the cage in there..can you get more pix???

    and safety wire. :p

    send one over, I'll put it on!

    LOL, yes she did. Everyone calls it a girls car, so the sticker fits. :)

    It is a custom weld in cage. No one makes a kit for this car. Yes the dash is completely empty besides the cluster.

    You can find more pics of the cage here:
