After getting a divorce and losing my Acura TL to the ex, I decided to get a family-friendly car that was efficient on fuel and affordable to maintain, upgrade, and stylishly eye-catching. I always felt like my old TL was modeled after the 6th gen Accords, so I decided to purchase one. Changes will continue to come and go as the funds flow in, and I know not all will approve or like my choices, but to each their own :beer:

I didn't want to go lower, since I was already rolling on 20" MSR 096s and having rubbing issues as it was.

Both OEM front and back were busted and faded, that's why the cheap quick replacement. Plan on doing a retrofit with the front headlights with upgraded projectors and a LED bar, and going to do the LED rear tail lights later on. The fog lights weren't OEM, they were Raybrig fog lights added on and were so rusted badly in the rear that I had to throw them away. Was going to get more, but decided when I order the body kit, I'm going to do an LED bar as a fog light instead.

Getting the decals redone in the back, new ones with colors, and will completely replace the Sponsored by Mommy & Daddy. Same position, just more life and color :cheers:

Thanks Red!



This is wired into the factory dome light, and helps increase my light output :happy107: I would have loved to kept the Raybrig, but they were uber pricey once I found a yellow set, so I settled on these. They work great, give the car a unique look, and I love the yellow output in fog :cheers: Yeah, the car is just a slow work in project, wanting something different. Next off is to remove the trunk spoiler and sell it.

So, I decided to do a photoshop of a potential paint job I'm considering. The colors may change, but the two-tone design is going to stay. PSed a car from Stance Works to work for this.

(Not the greatest job, it's 2:00 am and I'm tired :ownedrun:)
