Last week, an uncle of mine called me, asking me if I'd be interested in some photography stuff he had "left over". They're a bit old, but as it turns out they're pretty damned good for oldies.

I kinda like my new~ish used hood that I traded cheaply too.
4 wire o2 sensor for a modded VT hood. Paint isn't great, but better than the fibreglass one.

Enjoy.

















hmm....auto-resize don't work

Your car is so sweet, it's a shame you can't bring it to a meet so we can all ogle over it. At least until you move stateside. 8)

I didn't notice before, but you need Tint! Is it legal over there? I got 35% tint on my rex last year, but I should have gone with 20%.

And as always, you take fantastic pics.

I'm afraid my picture and imaging skills way exceed the quality of the paint.
But, I'm polling some painters into having some bodywork done.

I'd love to have a tint. It would benefit greatly from it. It is, however illegal. Not that it would stop me...but I simply can't afford to have it done decently at the moment. That would set me back a good 200 bucks wich I'd rather spend on plane fare before summer is over.

Bas, is your center taillight section and the border around the right and left tails painted black? I've got a black car too, and now that I've got the windows tinted at 20% I've been thinking about ways to kinda black it out...and that's one idea...if not painting them, maybe getting some NiteShades and smoking them out a little (as well as the all-amber corners and bumper lights)...anyway it looks really good, just wondering what you did exactly.

First I smoked the parts that light up, except the reverse and fog.
Then I cleared that with UV resistant clear.
After that cured a few days, I painted the trim and center section color matched to the car, and cleared the whole thing again.

It's holding up for a couple of years now. Just a few chips around the keyhole and where you open the trunk. When I have more time I'm gonna remove them, touch it up, polish it all and re-clear it again.

Damn, NICE, what lip kit is that or is it stock for over there?

And everybody says rotas are overated...I think you just proved them wrong.

Well...OMP bars are yellow. So are the koni's so there is a theme going on :lol: I might paint it. Not sure on the color yet.

The front lip is off an 1994 civic VTi. I think it came on the coupe too.
The sides are off an 1998 civic coupe.
The rear is a modified 90 crx front lip.

Those were alot of work to make them fit nice and flush. I'm still not entirely satisfied with them as it is.

The wing is an OEM honda wing. It's fromn the CRX-VT. Basically the european version of the SiR. Sortof.
I can get them used in the 180-200 price range.

On the pictures...well...location is everything.
You want the background to be non-distinctive. Nothing should stick out.
Parked cars, people, colorful objects will distract from the subject.

Remember, taking pictures is a huge ego-trip. It's all about the subject.

Good locations are hard to find. I've driven around for hours to find some good ones. Looking at my pics you'll see I have a couple of favorites. The white faced wall is recent. They just finished construction.

You know what... I'll start a "how to" picture thread sometime this week.I'll need some time to set that up.

the trick is drive around. I see a lot of people who drive around the industry part of town or all the futuristic company buildings...

okay stupid question.. and i feel like a noob for asking but is that a stock spoiler? if not who makes it and how much.. love that spoiler
That is infact a stock spoiler. It can be seen on the CRX SIR (in japan) and also on the CRX Special Edition (In Canada). I don't know if they came stock on the VT in Europe... i'm assuming so.
