So I've had this car for quite a while and I think now is the time to finally start a thread.

Here is how the car used to look...




After some parts and some work...

my fans busted so I put some slim fans in, which seem to work better than the stock ones.


Some seats to hold me in place


When I was putting in the 6 speed.


Tein S Tech Springs

Before:


After the Springs:


After getting some more new parts in...





coilovers:

Megan camber control arms:


What it looks like now after I finally installed everything and painted the front bumper, spoiler and rear inserts. Also got a dual exhaust setup.

Car is looking good and the mods are tasteful!

Question though, the wiring harness for the fogs, is that an OEM harness and do you have a part number? I have a 2000 w/ 2003 bumper/fogs and dont have them wired up.

Thanks drummerdawg, It's not an OEM kit. I bought the kit for the highlander, mr2 and I think yaris from ebay. The kit came with all of the wiring needed and the switch and everything. The quality is poor, but you get what you pay for. My brother helped me do the wiring to get them to work.

I actually had some knock off recaro seats before these and they came with civic rails and I just bent them a little and my bro helped me weld some brackets for them. So I actually don't have nice rails, although I do intend on purchasing a nice set.

Haha well the 5 license plate was the old one and the rear was bent from a small accident, some guy was not paying attention and hit my rear bumper, so I wanted to get new plates and that's how it happened.

Car looks tight with those mods. Needs more low lol.
Just got an alignment a few days ago, car rides a lot better. I got the megan toe control arms and put those in and the car feels way better. I wish I had those for the meet. I honestly don't know how you guys that are lower drive around like that. At the height my car is, it scrapes on most speed bumps in parking garages.

It's the Luxury Part ducktail spoiler, he used to offer them painted, but not anymore. I just painted it with some paint from automotivetouchup.com I also did the front bumper while I was at it, since i bought it from the dealer and they don't come painted. I'll post pics of it in a bit.
