    I figured this would be better in off topic since they aren't artistic pictures what so ever.

    I don't feel like having to update multiple threads, so I'm just going to link to the honda-tech thread and update that one since you do not need to be a memeber to view it.

    Thanks for looking yo :)

    awesome! I hope it turns out good!

    Are you doing it yourself? Or are you having someone else paint it?

    Car looks like it's had a hard life there, Dan! Judging by the 2nd pic in the thread the front bar is slightly warped.

    Are the swirlmarks on the roof from you using cutting agents in vain? :lol:

    What's the final colour going to be? can we make suggestions? ;) :mrgreen:

    i'm just doing some of the easy stuff, my uncle's gunna paint it.



    yeah it seemed to have had a front end collision of some sort, but my uncle said that'll be fixed easily, other than that though the car is so clean... it's gotta be a southern car. I'll have to carfax it sometime and find out.

    those swirlmarks are after i finished DAing the roof actually :)

    also, it's just being painted the same color, milano red.... the door jams are mint and it'll just be cheaper and easier. Plus i like the red :)

    Wow...ive never really been interested in cars...but after reading that I kinda am...

    Its like plastic surgery isnt it? when they re do cars, they rip them apart and start again...and they will sometimes break bones in the body and re set them for the desired look....

    Not really, Dan. When you mod a car you normally take away or add extra bits. You don't tend to do that with a human body.
    "And what would you like today sir?"
    "Erm, I'm feeling like something small but effective today my good man. Take off my ears and replace them with M3 mirrors." :mrgreen:

    Hmm... I'm wondering how someone would look after they've been covered in glue and thrown in a Wings West parts bin. :mrgreen: :oops:

    They'd look better if they ended up in the C-west or Veilside bin. ;)
