Well they are a 320 TW bruh. The sport comp 2's I have now are getting pretty noisy but I have like double the miles on them than they're supposed to have. They've been alright, can't really complain. Don't really wanna go to a 200TW as I have a feeling they'll be gone quick but want to keep a UHP summer tire on the car. We'll see!

Looks 10/10. No idea when I'll get time to put it on. Also I think I'm gonna scoop up some OEM splash guards and window visors since I can still buy them new, and I'm not running side skirts or a rear lip. After having that EK, I figured might as well get them now when they're easy to find

ight boyz

Decided enough was enough with the nasty headlights and refinished them...again.. but decided this time to throw on Opti-Lens UV solution stuff. Ended up doing about 4 coats along with a wash, clay and wax of the whole car. Its been a minute since its been clean so here so pics with the new lip + clean headlights + clean car. Roof rack was removed to wash and wax. Might keep it off for a bit. Also my rear Si emblem fell off like a year ago so finally decided to put it back on

Not really yellow, but cloudy. Was driving me crazy.

Ended up shooting Tom's ITR after Caffeine and Octane and the ole boat managed to sneak in.

great to see people 'freshening' up their cars instead of just dumping them to get something new

I love this thing. Don't know what I'd replace it with!

Thanks man! hopefully this opti-lens holds up as described in reviews. I put extra coats on just to ensure but we'll see!

Thanks dude, I do what I can. All were shot with a Fujifilm XE-1 and a Canon FD 50mm 1.4 or FD 28mm 2.8

Literally the only thing I change on this car is the shift ****. Got tired of the stock ****, enjoyed the weight of it compared to the anvil I had in there before but wasn't happy with the shape. I was tired of the ball type ***** as I've had several. The search for a **** ensued and I narrowed it down to Carbing, Spoon or Checkerd Sports. I figured the Spoon duracon **** would be too light and wasn't super sold on the Carbing. Ended up with the Checkerd Sports Aluminum **** and I love it. I've had the CS duracon before and loved it so the added weight is great and it fits your hand perfectly. Raul is a cool dude to deal with also!

alright guys

speaking of flashpro, little life update. My wife finishes pharmacy school in May and has been offered a pharmacist position in Chattanooga TN as soon as she's finished. I also have been offered a job as a CRM support specialist at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga and start working from home next week. Hopefully by July-May some bigger changes to the civic will start. Super excited about living closer to the mountains and starting a new chapter

Couple small updates. The BFG's were worn out so decided to replace them with Firestone Indy 500's...basically an RE-11. Also changed my serp belt, and cleaned the bay to prep for some spoon goodies, went to Road Atlanta and shot some friends and thats about all!
