    Met the kid on craigslist. he's trading me straight up for my truck. D15b2 5spd. The thing is teggy yellow, good paint on the back, shitty on the front, not bad interior, someone took a bite out of the seat, like they did with everyone else's. He's got a retarded ass ram air intake on it, and i told him i want the old one. Rear sway bar, battery relocated to the rear, needs a radio, theres a hole in the top of the hatch, i'm not sure what it's for. Antenna maybe? I'll post pics when i get it. I'm fuckin excited.

    Thanks. I'm ripping that damn body kit off the first chance i get i think. the skirts are cracked, the bumper isn't on right, i think a jdm bumper would look 748294701829089526031X better. the paint isn't as good on the front as it looks in the pics. I have a friend that has a compressor, I'm gonna try my hand, maybe use the hood first or something so i don't fuck everything up. It's a nice little car. engine bay is maroon though...

    good looking rex.

    if you get the jdm bumper there will be a gap since the EDM/JDM SiR headlights are a little bit wider than the USDM. So a hood would be in order as well with headlights.. If you are crafty you can get a template for cutting sidemarkers.

    Now if it is the stock maroon/red in the engine bay im thinking of that's a metallic its a pretty sweet color

    itll look weird though, getting a stock bumper may be your best shot though.

    come to think of it, it kinda does look stock, just butchered.

    I may just do that. like I said, it isn't as good looking as the pics. I was thinking going jdm, but that sounds like itd be a pain in the ass.

    thanks! I'll keep you guys updated. Its got a long way to go, but I hope I can get there. I love the paint on the back half of the car. its a kick ass color. I don't mind the black on the hood, but its faded and shitty looking. cf would make that much better. I don't wanna count my chickens before they hatch, but we're gonna get titles traded over thursday. the clutch is stiff as hell on the thing, and it needs adjusted. that's first. I'll post pics of what needs to be done. get some suggestions on doing them I hope.

    Looks good, will look better after you get rid of the body kit. :thumbsup: Hit up the Honda yard, they have got some CRXs, you could nab a set of fenders and bumpers for pretty cheap.

    Not diggin the kit. Take it off and you won't need a JDM bumper to make it look nice. :)

    the bed is fucked. frame is fine. its not on wrong, its just rotten. yeah, I figured hed want some cash ontop. 4 bags, 1 pump, 1 tank, 10 switches. no fenders.

    Byron, where is a good midpoint between wayne county and salem? the kid had me meet at the theater in north canton last time. he drove for 20 min and I drove for a half hour.
