Thanks @B18C'R EK

Just going to get all this stuff fitted. I've a bride seat I picked up that I'm doing a mini refurb on.......might fit it for a while until I can find some mint black dc2/dc5 recaros.

Parts I am looking to buy -

Poly j's rep front lip (want poly so it's speed bump friendly)
Stanely fogs
Wind deflectors

I am not sure on the following items as might just look to add the bolt on parts -

B18C and S80....... would be nice but not sure
JDM rear bumper......had one on my white crx
Keyless door handles
Tin top swap

I seem to change my mind daily with the 'not sure' list
B18c with s80 box will bring the things alive

b18 in older chassis like the crx an ef is just perfect :)

What a lovely example!

I'm kinda hoping you keep it stockish as there can't be many so nice now.

So, couldn't find any OEM center caps the right size.

These came today but not sure I like them

Not updated this is ages.

Got some jobs done and did the nc500 which was brilliant, no issues at all which was good.

First was getting the coilovers, steering wheel and rad fitted.

Unfortunately I don't like the wheels I had refinished on the car, just don't think it suits them which is a shame given the £££ I spent......just going to stick with the gram lights for just now
