thanks googled the base, and then photoshopped it myself.
Forgot to add my damage. Around October I took a turn a little too early and thankfully there was a foot high curb to stop me.

Here was when it happened:

they're just sitting in the shed right now and have been since i changed them out. they have a little fading on them but not too bad. PM me a price if you really want them.

nice progress so far. Besides a manual swap what are your plans?
after the swap, thinking kpro and boost. and eventually im sure i'll want to do a kswap when i get bored of the D17; but thats most likely not going to happen any time soon.

but besides engine mods, looking into getting 03txcivic's blue tokico's and progress springs here pretty soon. get some type A sides, megan LCA's and header, maybe progress sways (front and back) or DC5 sways, (undecided brand) camber kits, and a VIS CF OEM Hood. then of course other little mods, nothing rice, although those plastic chrome stick on fender vents look nice.....pfffffffffffffhahahahaha :rofl:
well its been snowing the past couple days, but managed to get my injector cover painted during that time.

and here is a picture of the lovely NC salt.

are you still wanting my extra subframe?
well bryan and paul was going to try to mod the auto subframe for the MT. so i was going to see what he can do with that, but dont sell it too quick because i might need it! haha
ok buddy
i dont think its going anywhere fast so no worries :tup:
alright sounds good!
Fresh Ride Bro :ricer:
whats up with the plates?? :dunno: haha, jk! Car looks good! keep it up! ;)
EDM plates = +100hp duh! :ricer::fu:

thanks bro!
I like the progress. The only part I'm not so sure I'm crazy about is the part on top of your front bumper....near the grill....not a fan of those bump looking thing.
