    Looks like a clean start. Paint looks in very good condition. I'd still like a white or blue sedan someday.

    Thanks the paint is pretty good there are some scrapes on the front and rear bumper and if you look close in the last picture the previous owner hit or was hit on the front fender near the side skirt, but ill replace the fender eventually. The worse part is there is hail damage on the hood, roof, and trunk but white hides it good lol. My plans for the outside is to get a carbon fiber hood and trunk, dark headlights with a retro fit hid, and not sure what im doing with the rims but i know im staying with 15's. I have some 17's now but decided to be different and stay stock size just with a 195/50 series i have now. Your cg looks great by the way, it has given me some good ideas.

    Thanks i do love white especially how it looks clean most of time from a distance. I still got along ways to go, there are so many cgs here that put mine to shame lol. Yours is awesome looking i love your current rims and very jealous of your h22 swap plans, if it werent my daily i would go for it but building a spare f23 and turbo is my best bet. Best of luck with your swap look forward to more updates.

    Looks like a good start. I love a clean white sedan too, one of my favorites was Hguzman90's.

    Timing belt/water pump, balance belt and seals done at 188k.
    Clutch replaced twice (first one had a spring break free)
    Both drive belts
    Front rotors, pads and rear pads.
    Alignment
    Replaced shifter boot (from dc2 integra) and shifter knob.
    Running led bulbs headlight bulbs till hid retro is finished
    Both axles and seals
    Rear main seal

    Replaced ex stock rims with oem se rims (the ones that look like 99-00 si rims)
    And probably a bunch more.

    What im currently working on, hid retrofit. Wont have any progress until after my move to Florida on Monday. Im using a pair of afs rx350 projectors and the oem ballast.
    Still need to refurbish and black out my old oem headlights.
