This is the reason i was debating on get back on HT. People like ^^^^. I understand people have the right to their opinion. But if u can't be constructive with ur comments then it just shows that u can't be open minded about someone else's build.

Now if you'll wanna sponsor my build then we can talk about changing up some things.

P.S. There is more than just stickers on the hood. When u grow up and wanna actually talk like u've matured then i'll tell u the story behind it.

Hate the wheels. I dont like the stickers on the bumber, but I dont mind the hood, because I'm eventually doing an extra hood with art.

If I'm honest, I like a few of your suspension alterations... but that's about it for me. Too many replica/knock-off parts for my liking (especially the seats, due to how un-safe they are). But you seem happy with it, which is all that matters in the end of the day.

As long as you are happy.

When you post your car on a public forum, be prepared to receive feedback... whether it be positive or negative.

I understand that this is a public forum but it's not the only one. And HT is mainly known now a days as being the main site for Haters and people with nothing good to say no matter what. I had an account long ago (back in 05-06) and enjoyed getting on here and talking to the members about everyone was more respectful of ur build. If they didn't like it then they was more constructive about it. I only jumped back on here to see what's new and i got my Civic a couple years ago so decided hey what the hell.

It's all good though people are going to have there opinions.

We've had this conversation in another thread. I think you went overboard with the stickers, but its your car, not mine.

I do like the new wheels. I think they look really good on there.

With a legit front lip and all the stickers removed, you'd have a slick looking DD, imo.

clean bay, and your suspension sounds comfortable... Just wonder when you got lost with the stickers and wheel choice... Theyre a little overkill, and look like vw borberts..I say vw, because you usually see them on the dubs.

Its definitly clean tho.... just not my style

Ok since everyone is jumping on the hood here's the story.

When i was deployed for 2009-2010 we had a couple of situations where i might not have made it home. During that time my family, friends and co-workers are the only thing that kept me going to make it thru out the year. So when i got back i got a lot of work done to my car. Just saying thank you to everyone to me wasn't enough, so while at the body shop me and a friend was reminiscing over our high school days. Next minute you know we was taking about back when people signed our year books. That's when it hit me. I wanted them to sign something that i got out of the deployment and something that shows them how much it meant to me. They know i love my car so the best way to show them was to let them sign the hood. The hood is a way for me to say thank you to everyone that supported me while i was in that hostile situation. The stickers on there are just to fill in the empty spots.

So there is the meaning behind the hood. It holds sentimental value and not a trend.

You care about what people think, or you wouldn't post it on a forum. This is the exact reason why I post very few pictures of my car, because then Im never offended if people think its a pile.

First picture was the best, the rest just went downhill.

That's fine if you want to put stickers all over your hood since it has a touching story, but what I don't understand is that you have like, a quater million stickers on your hood, yet you couldn't resist to put a FEW more on your windshield and the bumper?

Seriously man? You couldn't have made those fit SOMEWHERE on the hood with the rest?
