Default 95 ej1 coupe build/ AKA Project Audora

Bought the car for $1600 on craigslist. After i got shot at in my Mazda mx6 (good ol times lol) then ended up crashing it lol. So a Buddy of mine who owned a 2000 honda civic si said i should look into getting a civic so i did. Which lead me to Project Audora.

Mods:
Engine:
1.Custom 2.5 Catback exaust (bought it with it) dont like it at all. Right now looking at getting either Apexi ws2 or Greddy evo 2 catback.

2.Ractive headers( again came with the car plan on changing this out also.)

3. No name brand short ram Airintake( changing it to PSWJDM Airintake)

4. Apexi Vafc

Exterior:
1.projector headlights( changed to JDM headlights instead)

2. Not sure what rims where on the car but they were honda rims not sure off of what though.( Ended up finding me 16" Rotas Grids on Craigslist for $500)

3. 50/50 taillights

4.JDM fog lights

Suspension:
1. Skunk2 coilovers

More Upgrades to come....

Yes i will be changing the fenders lol, they came with the car when i bought it. Thinking about picking up a set of fenders from PSWJDM. As for lip im still not sure what lip i should get right now im leaning toward a type r lip. Its still a work in progress it will get cleaner looking when i get more money for parts and what not....

Well then i feel like an idiot now cause i really didnt think they were. I think it was because of how big the tires were on the rims. I kept one as a spare and sold the other 3. Now knowing that they were si rims i should have kept them. i would have used them for rims for the winter when i went back home cause it snows alot there..

Yeah, the 7th gen EX came with the same wheels as the Si, but with less sporty tires.

I like Si wheels, but don't get bent out of shape, honda-tech overrates factory parts. You'd think they were made out of platinum and gave you orgams on sight.

Ok well after like a week i got my car shipped from my old home to where i live now, a few new friends of mine said they were going to a drag strip a few towns over they had found. One of them said they he had gotten permission from the owner that we could us it at night since we all worked during the day and by the time we got off it was night. So we all meet up, a total of 5 cars, 2000 si, 2000 something monte carlo, 09 jetta and a 02 pontiac supercharged grand prix.
Once we drove and finally got there come to find out it was some country as redneck drag strip, i was like you got to be kidding me lol. civic and monte raced first then it was civic and jetta. Then a buddy of mine was like take a practice run and get a feel for the track. ( My wife and Buddy was in the car that god they got out before i got to the line). Once i got to the line and took off a loud BANG went off everyone and including me thought my car backfired or i caught a flat. Then BANG again i was like wtf!!! Then as i slowed down i look over my shoulder i see my rear passenger window spiderwebbed. Im like WTF!!!! Then i see my friend in his jetta hauling *** by and my wife yelling out the window RUN!!!!!! After that it was Straight up Dukes of Hazard **** driving all the way at the end of the track getting lost in this tall grass field. Almost driving through a fence following my friend his jetta to get out of there to get to the Highway.
Come to find out we call the owner and tries to deny that he heard any shots, then admits that he was the one that shot the couple of times but says that he didnt shoot at anyone ofcourse i had proof lol. He sounded pretty drunk. Thats basically what went down that night.
