    My one critique, put a plate on the front or lose the bottom plate bracket. IDK why it bothers me so much. Removed it from my Teg on the first day. But it's good to see a non-hooptie 3rd gen. I feel like mine might be the only one in NJ.

    Thanks guys. As far as the plate bracket goes, it was taken off the day after I bought the car, those pics are of its 1st day at the house. Im working on getting the suspension put together and should have all the parts sourced and install by sping. This is how the plate sits for now.

    They don't require front plates in MI. It's one of the only things I like about this state (road/automotive law wise). Once in a while though you'll still see cars that have front plate mounting brackets, probably people who came from out of state. I'm always like, "Ugh, y u no remove ugly bracket???"

    The require them here in Idaho...or so they say. I have been stopped once, still refuse to mount it up there though. Seems like cops like to pick and choose when to inforce it.

    Got a little work done yesterday.

    The tools needed for the job.

    The casualties of war.

    Skunk2 oil pan plug installed. Also did my ES shifter bushings, no pic.

    Before.

    After. It is not settled yet so its getting a little more snug.

    [​IMG]

    Did this one when I got home, love it. Its the 270mm model.

    [​IMG]

    These bastards and an alignment is next weekend, ran out of time today.

    First thoughts are OMGBOUNCE. I am hoping once it gets settled in that it will not be so bouncy. Also I was not able to put my stock strut tower brace back on, not happy about that. In the end I like the way it looks and am excited to see how it handles. Also I updated my first post with more accurate info.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. It needs work and some tlc, but its my most favorite Honda I have ever owned.

    Still have not figured it out. I plan on doing extended top hats next month so it wont matter anyways but...I am still going to see if I messed something up while im in there.

    I hunted for blades for a couple years and when I found a clean set for under $600 I snagged them, they go for insane amounts in Idaho recently. I actually scored them from one of the mods on my forum for $325 with almost new tires, I will have these forever. The webs need some tlc and new winter rubbers.

    Found out today I am a moron. The reason I couldnt get my strut bar back on is because I was trying to put it on backwards. You live and you learn. Right? :ph34r:
