Since I decided to keep my Rsx I figured I would make a progress thread for it. I've never made one of these before, so cut me some slack lol. I got the car right at a year ago and really haven't done too much with it. There are so many ways to mod the car I just haven't been able to make up my mind. Lately I've been ordering parts here and there hoping to make something out of my car. This will be a slow progression seeing how I have other priorities and money goes elsewhere at times. As of right now the car is pretty much stock, and that will soon change. :goodjob:

How it was when I first got it:

It's current state now isn't far from this, I'll try my best to make a few weekly updates to this thread. I know my style isn't what most people are into but whatever. It's my car! ;)

Dylan

Oh ok lol. I still haven't made my mind up on which path I want to go for performance. I guess this should be a progress thread since I'm focusing on visual upgrades.

If I see the words "hella-flush" or "0-offset" in this thread I will personally visit your home and whoop your ass.

Dylan

I finally got the fog lights and lower grillle in the other day. Today I got my bumper and went ahead and did the rear conversion. So far I'm really satisfied with it, all I need now are a good set of wheels.

Thanks I'm working hard on it. I'm thinking about 17x9 not sure what style though. I want it flush but not hellawtfomgbbq flush.

I know im working on purchasing coilovers now, I want to go lower so bad lol. I would love boost but im considering a k20/k24 na build or k24 swap :goodjob:

02-27-2012, 08:55 AM
k24a2 is a pretty simple sway but i wouldn't pull out a good k20a2 just for a k24a2. Either build a na motor or go boost, I wish I would have gone boost from the start. Whats your name on clubrsx?

Looks good with the conversions. My only complaint is the painted stockies. Good luck with the build, it's a fun car.
