And Done : ^ )



rain and more rain, but we got the lca and struts installed.
Definitely a learning experience but it's Ol' Scool a little higher inthe rear and low in the front.

whoa what a difference, took her for a little ride feels so stiff compared to the old original suspension.
I'm looking for another shop to do the alignment as the shop I used for the EG quoted me a price of , you ready for this? Cuz i about - - - - when they said $990.00 to just install and aline.
That did it for me there. I said no I have the coilovers I don't want to buy them through you. No thats just the labor was the response. Ya ok I thought, but not from me, lol.

Re finish mirror bases

and this was a good time to clean door panels

This is after cleaning which dried out the plastics, but applied armorall tire shine and let sit over night before wiping off.
just about everything cleans up like almost new, Makes me almost feel bad with changing this and that about it, but can't help it it's just me : ^ )
shoot, it still has the original door speakers in it and they still sound good,


Installed

everything is looking real good.. u really have me wanting an integra now! definitely one of my favorite "attainable" cars (price wise anyways). idk why this era of honda wheels and honda mudguards makes me so happy...its pretty silly but they always stand out to me.

i know i brought i brought it up before, and u mentioned it...but a front lip will definitely counterbalance that wing nicely. (n u know im waiting for u to get the urge to put front clear corners too lol)

glad u like the teins. they appear to be the basic z's? i have the basics on my GE also. i flip flop between being responsible and keeping the drop within the recommended zone....and saying F it and going full drop. im too old to be worrying about fender gap lol. ill never grow up i suppose. overall i have been happy with the teins. i do wish i got the advanced with the damper adjustability though. initially i was just going to get tein DF lowering springs, so i thought the basics were already overkill. the basics are really comfy though....and more importantly, quiet. im back to riding at full drop, which has the car pretty much hovering right at bumpstop level. rides nice except for when i hit those speedbump like road seams. i know each blow is hurting my car a little bit at a time. fortunately i dont hit them often.

coincidentally i got my teins at RCA for a similar price also. they must be getting a serious hookup to be able to pump them out at their prices. they were the only company that i could get to obtain a set of tein coilovers for my scion xa while they were backordered, and still charged me the "sale" price too!. They earned my cosign.

lol RCA told me the same ... back ordered. 2 weeks out, but they are the cat's meow haha as my setup was the original 19 year old factory struts !! So when these hit those same bumps instead of bouncing it was just a little blip. Yep these are the street Z set.

Yes yes its like a new ride! In a great way. I drove her around town and a little hiway. Bumps, manhole covers and alike are just a blip now, before it was an embarrassment. Best 80.00 spent on a 4 wheel alinment.
-1degree camber in front and -.8 degrees in the rear. Tracks straight and moves quickly where the steering wheel in turned.
big huge change for about 600.00 total ... a bargin for sure.

is cap black or polished? hard to tell in pic

now if i may....respectfully, critique your engine bay. sorry, i have slight ocd, i like to think of it as an enhanced attention to detail, hah...

my eyes keep wanting to go to the exhaust heat shield. i know it turned the color it was naturally suppose to turn, but id say go satin black on it, since flat black tends to look greyish. maybe even high heat "aluminum" would look cool. or even better, a new header...but then we are getting further and further away from OE lol. Last thing is the AC line bracket in front of it that connects to the rad support.

then... that bay will be hella sexy.

What do I do with all this black interior....

The interior of the Integra is soo nice and clean and BLACK .
So what to do, hummm?
I turned to Lloyd's carpets and am getting all red mats including the hatch area with "A" acura logo on the front mats and hatch mat. Made with 32oz. Torch Red ultimate carpet.
It's a start to brightening up the interior eh? ; ^ )
