from when my lude got backed into

here are the few pics i have




when i threw on my red vc


after popping my dent out a little so i could pass safety


when i got it back

Its back :headbang:



THE PAINT IS AMAZING!!! and other than the front bumper kinda was weird... my fog light wiring was hanging out below! and i didnt really think anything of it till i got home, but my turn signals were going fast like one was burned out, i didn't notice that the front actually were not working till i was behind a car right before I got home. I popped the hood and pulled my right turn signal wiring up... the BULB WAS SHATTERED :notify: pulled up the left, the same thing. it was just after 6 and their phone hours were only till 6 :dozingoff: so i just drove down there and got there RIGHT before the last guy was going to leave and they got me in and fixed the bulbs and the manager said he was gonna have a talk with the guys tomorrow so it wouldn't happen again... seems like its one thing after another but in the end, it all ends up ok.

No waxing for a good 30 days though... i guess ill have to settle for the right side of it for that :sneaky:

no more OEM deck






motion in motion mod so DVDs while driving Wink

my unexpected swap from the trip out at miller motor sports that ended in a spin out Very Happy

ok a few things about the new engine, communication error about mileage its 59k miles and NOT KILOMETERS oh well still lower than what i was at! 😁
it came out of a 2000 SH and it is USDM H22a4 the car was totaled on August 4th 2009 (15 days before my bday lol) purchases with only 25 miles on the odometer out of Gardena i wanna say thats in cali but im not sure. VIN number JHMBB6152YC005242 now for the pics 😁
















^^^all cleaned up

oil in with spark plugs :dozingoff:





2/27/10 update
anyway got my car back, driving to school the next day my cel comes on so i go to class and call up the mechanic and he tells me to bring it down and we will pull the code, it was an o2 sensor :dozingoff: and so they order it and it gets there yada yada yada he found a small oil leak on the only seal he didnt change so they order that part and it comes the next day and so i drop it off for a few hours and when i dropped it off, i picked up my red powdercoated vc to clean back up.

anyway its running great right now and i think i have a itty bitty leak, but im not sure i need to find a clean spot on the driveway to park over to see if it is dripping.

got a few JDM pieces in today though :biggrin: front/rear red emblems and a nice JDM cupholder and got those installed today.

front emblem

rear emblem

JDM cup holder



they all are installed





and one from earlier in the day


3/10/10 update

Type s came today Very Happy








TYPE S Flushmount on
heres one of it on... trunk was WASHED AND WAXED BEFORE it was put on and done in the garage lol


my friend also thought it would be funny to draw a dick on the back Laughing

heres a few pictures i took a while ago but never pulled off of my camera (it doesnt like my mac :dozingoff:)

JDM Cupholder






3/17/10 Update
camshaft seal and vtec solenoid seal got changed tonight.


my powersteering got basically every seal redone as well also put my rear tanabe sway bar on finally with new end links

3/25/10 Update
got some goods yesterday

OEM optional side skirts (ebp right now)

pulled off my door panel as well and found out my new door used to be nordic mist and the previous owner of the door also had their glass broken cause i found some shards in the door


finally found the rest of my oil drip leak. it was from the oil pan not being resealed when the motor got cleaned up by the company it came from. they pulled it off and just stuck it back on :glare: so it was pulled off tonight and has been resealed Very Happy


4/11/10 Update
Put on some JDM visors last night as well as the rear type s ash tray (dont like that missing spot back there lol)




this piece was the biggest PAIN IN THE ASS!!!!

blurry pic but thats a washer... i dropped my first one and it went down the freaking door panel >Sad so once i got that pulled off and found it i pulled the visor off and put it on first then screwed the rest on



first step i did on the second visor and it made it sooooooo much easier!



pass side done





heres the write up i used to put mine on

7/1/10 update
finally got one of my valve covers back from the powder coater last night, took two weeks cause he got so busy and was never home when i could go get it, but oh well it was worth the wait to have the price lowered Wink

lettering was originally going to be white, but the blue bled into it and he just polished them for me instead.





these pictures do this color no justice, but here are some better ones he took for me.





The color is a dead on match to the F-zero blue from Volk. I'm planning on doing my SH rims this color for winter

8/28/10 update
spent the day down at a buddies shop with my brother in law getting a few things done on the new DD he picked up and used some of their tools to finally put my VC on Love

before stretch kit bars



after


Q clips for my roof rack





my tanabe strut bar done in white


digging through some halloween stuff and found a black light



random pic from a mini shoot that didnt go so well :/















just a test fit, but pretty much the idea. not gonna install mine till next spring cause i dont want it on during the winter.



surprisingly enough if the previous owner woulda had one of these it woulda saved my hood from how it looks now :frown:



the gap between the hood and protector




10/29/10
Pulled the front bumper off last night to get the condensation out of one of my headlights



just set them in my room with my fireplace going and dried them out

before


all gone!


Gonna add a little sealant to them when i get home tonight and then put it all back together.

Also ordered the few things i need to get to finish my roof rack but 2 cover parts for the stretch kit are on back order so its gonna be another 2 weeks :emthdown:

Also gonna be raising the car back up for a suitable winter height since its already snowed here this week

from when i was adjusting my lights


all back together


my buddy came over and we put on his powdercoated valve cover



the color is Project Mu Teal

The paper boy broke my beater trucks mirror and was nice enough to leave a note saying that he would pay for it.
he took this thing out lol if it woulda been my lude's mirror i woulda said hello to some power folding mirrors


ordered a sticker from Fav's Squareonedecals.com and added his sticker to my rear window of rep


Haven't gotten around to raising the lude back up cause i just cant bare to have the gap but i need to do it :emthdown:

Roof rack stuff shipped today and should be here next week.

Finally getting a new alarm that will actually work for me and not cut out randomly! this will be installed on Thursday by the same guy who did my head unit Smile i had a few spare keys cut and one will be going for remote start.

12/1/10
Been busy since the last post.

Taillights had condensation in them and have since then been dried out and new gaskets.



the roof rack is on, ive been putting off throwing on the snowboard attachment for a while though :?


had to raise it up for the snow :/ and still managed to snow plow after a storm Laughing



Got a nikon D90 on black friday so i didnt have to wait on others to get pictures Very Happy still learning but i know im gonna have fun with it!
lenses with the camera are a 18-55mm and a 70-300mm

which one? your H or your J cover lol

BilliamII wrote:hate you...lol this car is beautiful i want a white sh sooo bad

its ok... i hate myself as well. look at how close all the updates are... i have nothing more to really do on it lol so its saving time and powder coat random things bounce

i think next up for that will be to powdercoat my brake calipers(prolly around 100 i think) , intake (probably 35-40), battery tie down (probably 15), and a few brackets (probably 15 as well). just need spring/summer to get here so i can get it all done!

Jesus, just read this whole thread and I love your car!

I love those rims! With that color, I like those better than any aftermarket rims I've seen so far. Of course I'm a little biased since I also have ap1's haha

Just curious, how long did it take you to post up all those pictures? haha

March 3rd Update

Post by Press10 on Thu 03 Mar 2011, 4:00 pm

ok.

bigger picture of my engine bay as it sat on tuesday.


stripping the front brackets right now to have redone Rage powdercoat takes FOREVER to strip off! but it will be worth it Very Happy

figured i would just post a few pics of Unknown's shop as well cause im bored lol these were from the 27th of feb

his display wheel racks, i even missed one of the racks in the picture...


some of the shirts he sells, the vinyl rolls in the far right of the picture are in a racing seat he has for if you wanna feel extra cool while playing forza Razz no i didn't sit in it when i was down there, just sat on the couch


another one of his designs, i have one of the green shirt but my shirt is yellow lol


back in the "lab" with bmxfreakboy's vc cooling.


after he polished the DOHC VTEC letters, he usually has his dog down there chilling with him but he didnt bring him that sunday if you were wondering why in the hell theres a dog bowl down there lol



flat candy teal vc he was working on perfecting, looks much better in person. for some reason the cameras dont get the flat color look very well... phone cameras seem to work the best.


bmxfreakboy's vc i was packing up for him (shipped it on monday) he asked for a business card and some stickers so i grabbed some while i was down there. the ziplock baggie in there is holding his finishing washers and bolts he also wanted


this was from tuesday and i was bored lol my lude is dirty Crying or Very sad

thats about all i have for now though.

that is good weed!!!!

eh i can still find more to do eventually... starting to think about doing a tuck though i have no idea where to start and im not sure i want my fuse box in my glove box lol

I wouldn't do stock seats though, I would go out and buy some aftermarket ones. if you want some black s2k ones pv97lude linked me to some in ohio a week or so ago that are pretty mint.
