    Wow... that thing is beat! Looks like someone put a hatch/coupe bumper and lights on there without trying to mod the fenders too. Good luck with it!

    Yeah, the plans are LS with 14b turbo, running uberdata i believe. I bought an ECu from jon at www.phearable.com



    The fenders were modded just very poorly i am going to have to smooth them and redo the work with fiberglass or sheetmetal, prolly sheetmetal.

    I also had to raplace the trunk lod i will get pics up soon, anyone have or know where i could order a drivers side door with the glass i am keeping any eye open on ebay. I couldn't find any locally in yhe junk yards.

    Hoooooooly Moooooooooly talk about starting from the bottom. Here is what I would do:

    Step 1. Build a rotisserie.

    Step 2. Use rotisserie. Set aside 2 months of after-work time to complete the body.

    EDIT: By the way, how much do those Motegis weigh ?

    Can't argue with tacky when cheap is a factor as well. When painted they will fit. Fiber glass is slightly easier than sheetmetal.

    I need to get the hood to fit correctly. Civic brackets don't fit the sol and vice versa.

    Plenty of stuff needs to look like a mess before it gets all cleaned up. At least i have a drivers side window now, before it was broken, no more need to cover it with a tarp. well the rain is staying out, but i am also letting the ugly out without a tarp.

    Ideas on Paint?

    I am thinking some scheme of Blue and white, or maybe a light blue to dark blue fade.

    What about a spoiler? Obviously it would be purely athsetic. I am leaning toward some type of spoiler to"finish" the rear of the car.

    What are your opinions?

    Black is classic, but boring. Since i am painting the whole car I want people to know that it has been.

    Orange with the 01 on the side again :)

    And B: $2000 is closer to $1000 USD. The only currency that's more than the US dollar is (Well, the Euro, I guess) and the Pounds STerling, which is approximately twice the US dollar.
