    Managed to find a fender in the same color and replaced the damaged fender that came on the car. That was fairly straight forward. The color match was ok. Transferred over the TSX wheels, headlamps, and taillamps. The window graphics and stickers were removed. The rear bumper and antenna would also need to be replaced as they were both damaged.

    E46 Projector Retrofit
    Red/Clear Taillamps
    CL9 OEM TSX Wheels

    I bought that wheel from overseas via eBay. It came without the airbag module due to shipping restrictions, which is fine I guess. I jumped the circuit at the connector on the steering column to make the SRS Warning Light go out. The horn connectors are also connected there to make it operate correctly. The CB column shroud has to be modified as the rear of the Euro-R wheel is deeper and collides with the shroud.

    What paint do you use? Is it pretty sturdy stuff, not wearing from being touched too much, or if you accidentally scuff something against it?
    Thanks.

    Originally I was using SEM Color Coat Satin Black. I sanded, prepped, primed and painted the parts. I found that it wasn't the most durable finish and the gloss wasn't as matte as I wanted it to be. The console image in the post is Rustoleum Universal Flat Black. I followed the same process as I did with the previous SEM product. The gloss is more matte and the durability seems to be more robust as I haven't had any noticeable wear and tear.

    If you need new terminals for the Toyota EHPS, I have a few new ones left over from the MOQs I had to purchase for mine. I don't have any extra seals for the two 10 AWG wires, though.
    Thanks for the offer. I had to search the Toyota parts catalog and acquire all of the connectors, pins, and wiring to the complete pigtails.

    The chassis mods are taken directly from the car that I discarded and likely will see an overhaul in short order. When I was transferring the 5 lug from the old car, I encountered the common seized bolts in the rear LCA/subframe which required me to remove the assembly and have them torched off. I replaced the LCA's with OEM parts I had purchased a long while ago.


    For now the setup is:

    Chassis:
    5 Lug Swap (odyssey front/ prelude hub rear)
    BC BR Coilovers
    SPC Balljoint Camber Kit (front)
    Hardrace Radius Rod bushings
    Refreshed LCA's Front and Rear (I bought them ages ago and had them laying round when I was swapping the parts over from the old car)
    New aftermarket Tie Rods


    Brakes:
    ABS Delete
    Goodridge G-Stop Stainless Braided Lines
    2001-2006 DC5 11.8" Slotted Front Brake rotors
    DC5/AP1 Front Calipers
    DC2 Rear brake rotor (cross-drilled and slotted)
    Hawk HPS brake pads front/rear

    Thanks. I need to create a diagram for the wiring I think. I'll get around to that at some point.
