^ I've got a 6-hour drive planned out for some time in the next few days, so I should be posting some nice Autumn photos

But I guess this is the start of me stockpiling black interior parts? I went straight to a junkyard the morning I got a notification that they got an '06 base in, hoping to score some black cloth 05-06 front seats. I got there just four hours after opening and they were already gone, though. But I did luck out on a black cloth interior, and the back of the car was in excellent shape, so I still grabbed the rear bench, the trunk carpet, and my second all-season trunk mat. There are some hard depressions in the trunk carpet, as you can see, but otherwise it all cleaned up to look damn near new.



I swapped black carpet in a long time ago to replace my gray because there was this massive read stain in the front-passenger footwell when I got the car:



I don't know about anyone else, but I think that contrasting two-tone looks awesome, so that's the theme I'm going after with my interior. It's not something I'm putting full focus into finishing any time soon, and I'm not sure which parts I want black and which I want gray, but I suppose for now I'll just start collecting as many black pieces as I can when I have the spare cash and see what I can come up with. All I know is that I hate leather seats!

Kind of sad to think I haven't gone for a good drive since snow was last on the ground, and now it's already that time of year again. I had a drive planned for this week, but it's further in the mountains and I'm not sure of conditions; it's been so nice out, I wasn't expecting the snow this morning.

Took that drive! Started around Black Hawk, Colorado, a little mountain casino town, and followed Peak to Peak Highway north to Estes Park, where I went with the Focus and STi. The sun was being especially obnoxious for photos, but the roads were amazing. Elevation was roughly 8000ft the whole way...

Finally some real snow in the city!!!





Yeah, I need to fix the clocking on my driver-side projector. I had to open it up to fix the shroud that had fallen off - guess it wasn't glued on that side, my bad, lol - and wasn't thinking about the clocking when I was trying to wedge it back in place.



Nothing really going on with the car lately, though. I've been trying to get some Skunk2 LCAs on, but the extended bolts they come with have threads that are ever so slightly off and I'm not sure if I want to risk the damage. OE bolts thread right in by hand; these don't and are giving me a bit of metal shavings. On top of that, Honda decided to use an incredibly rare bolt size in the first place, so I can't find extended flange bolts ANYWHERE! Local or online. Regular hex bolts, sure, but they use monster 22mm hexes and install too close together (see the triangle arrangement below) for that size to allow room for a socket. I e-mailed K-Tuned to see if they sell their bolts by themselves, without the arms. I got a "sorry, no"... meaning their shit's probably made in China, too.



At this point, I'm debating leaving out S2's thick bronze plate-washer there and using the stock bolts on top of thinner, individual washers. I'll have to find some time when it's dryer out, though. The fact that I've only been able to find this complaint one other time leads me to believe that people are not noticing and using S2's bolts anyway and not having problems. Maybe...

Looking at all your pictures makes me want to move to Colorado. Girlfriend wants to move there but really expensive compared to here.

I love it here, and cost will depend on the area, but population and cost of living have both been steadily rising in the fourteen years I've been here. Still, I only work in grocery and am doing well enough.

Most of my immediate family is out here and we've been trying to get my last sister to come out from Minneapolis, but cost is holding her back, too. Must be dirt cheap in MN.

It is cheap, well seems cheap as I have a pretty good job here and I think it would be tough to find a similar one I have now that pays just as good. Maybe one day if the girlfriend can find a RN job down there.

After some cold, snowy days finally passed, I got those LCAs on. For the bolts, I settled for hexes with washers instead of using the stock flange bolts; I can get a socket on one if the others are clocked just right. The undercoating on the cross member was also peeling, so both to prevent rust and match my front control arms, I painted it silver. S2's bushings are known to crack, but these are the only arms I like the look of, so I ordered a full set of spares to keep on hand just in case.





I don't think it looks bad at all, and it even makes the red sway bar stand out more. At the very least, it's something to keep me interested in a stagnant project.

*ED. - I just realized I never posted the front control arm swap with the Energy bushings installed. I painted them silver to match the Mugen coilovers, and have since kept up the theme. I've got Stop-Tech stainless brake lines to help this whole image, but I have no idea when those will be installed...

New 4500k+35W, to replace a 5000k that went out. I love how Morimoto's new equipment comes in multiple pieces, so next time something fails I won't have to fork out so much.

I came here to check out your car once again as i keep finding cheaper RSX's every year; ijust found a 04 with front end damage(hood, fender,bumper, headlights and radiator will need replacing) for $750. I know anyone would say why buy a car for that price but with a low compression K20 under 100k AND 5spd; the answer becomes 'why the hell not". I know eventually i will get one to serve as a test dummy once i get the wife's CD5 out of the garage. Nice ride

Thanks! The dents and crappy paint on mine are bugging the hell out of me, but the car's got a long future with me still. It's too fun to drive, and with the weather warming up again I've been going on more mountain runs. I'm hoping to put in some more serious exploring around Colorado this summer, too.

Beautiful area, you could do a mountain run and stop by the side of the road and sling some flies for trout to eat that night.

The paint on Honda and some Toyota cars likes peeling for some reason, second hand cars of both makes seem to always be shedding. I think Bunta is trying to get you to do mountain passes so he can sneak up on you with the same blue Imprezza that he sneak up on Takumi.

Oh, to imagine some grassroots drifters having a go down Pikes Peak or Mount Evans

Yeah man, gotta find an outlet somehow to stay sane. I was just watching a video about a man in California I believe racing down a stretch of road called the snake in a Toyota Prius. Cy, I do like the two tone interior setup; at one point I was trying to do the same thing because my CB factory interior was grey and the replacement seats etc where tan, unfortunately the upholsterer I used didn't do a great job and door skin inserts he installed started to peel after a week.

I finally scored a pair of 2005-2006 seats from a base model at the junkyard. The padding was improved when the car got its mid-generation facelift, and the '02-'04s are a bit stiff for my taste. They're cloth like I want, but unfortunately not black. At least they'll match my current interior, and if I decide against black seats for the final two-tone arrangement, I'll be set. $50 for the pair of seats, plus $10 or so for some Super Clean and a dish washing brush, and they came out probably 95% - I've still got one seat to go, but you can see the difference here. Clean '05-'06 seats usually go for $5-600 from owners who know what they have! I'd call this a win. They'll be getting some lower seat covers once installed, so they don't end up all torn up like my current leathers.

Finally got the 2005 seats installed. I can't honestly say if they're any more comfortable, because my back is wrecked anyway. It's definitely nice having a head rest I can actually rest my head on while driving and still have my eyes pointing forward, though. With how nice these look compared to the shape of my old leathers, they have me wanting to replace the shabby steering wheel even more than before. I'm slowly making this car new again...
