well from the "Good" side its looks pretty good man .
And you should take care of that rust before it gets worse, you should look into some TazAuto replacement panels


And i saw you posted before on how to mount the flushie you have , but i didnt read what type it was ? it looks very simular to the OEM one.

Any interior , Engine bay pictures , Future plans ?

thanks, man. i plan on fixing the rust this upcoming winter, spring, or summer. whenever i've got the money. a good friend of mine's father owns a hella reputable body shop so i'm going to buy those panels and have him fix all or at least most of the rust haha

i got the flushmount from casterx, i don't know for sure what it is and neither does he. i looked into it and it looks like it might be a replacement for an older maxima but i don't know for sure

i'll get interior and engine shots as soon as i get my actual camera charged. these are just from my cell phone and a little editing. interior is pretty A+, though.

just got one of those g-square replicas off ebay. the ACTUAL replicas (funny saying actual replica like it's a good thing HA) not the stock gutted ones painted black

once it comes in and i get it painted flat black, i'll put it on, shine up what little bit of clear coat i have left on my car (lol), and snap a few better pictures.

I really like those rims. The interior is clean as hell too. I love that red interior when it's kept well.

the interior color is still iffy to me.. i mean, it definitely does look good if kept well but the color just bothers me at times. wouldn't mind swapping to gray or black

megan header.... hm... i'm thinking it was called rtperformance? one of those shops that's mainly run through ebay.

nah, not yet. it's nothing to show off at the moment but i'll take one next time around for sure. i'd really like to get that password jdm powerchamber and then show it off but who knows how long it will be before i have another $300 to spend on something else (need a smaller battery to make it fit)

well the intake itself is only like 170 shipped if you contact the sales rep through honda-tech and then the smaller battery is like 110 or something like that. worth it? maybe not but i want it haha

Haha they're definitely cool and crazy looking. I'm curious on the gains over a regular style short ram.

got the gsquare replica sprayed and installed. yay or nay? either way, it will stay for a while. i think i just need a legend lip or a carbon hood so it doesn't stick out so much.

Rust needs to be taken care of, everything else looks pretty clean! What kind of wheels are those?
