    Couldn't find the this thread is worthless without pics smily.

    Lol congrats man, can never go wrong with those, that will be a great daily. 3G TL is such a ridiculously good used car value.

    Interior is gray or black I'm guessing?

    -As you can see here, the dash is cracked just like 90% of the other TLs out there

    As for modifications, I found a Aspec Front Lip, that I will probably paint and throw on the car in Spring.

    I really need to get some better pictures of this, but it's currently about to undergo a lot of maintenance, such as clutch, pressure plate, flywheel, timing belt, water pump, mounts, etc.....

    Aside for maintenance, I bought Tein Coilovers for it about a week after purchasing the car, and I've put an S2000 weighted OEM knob in place of the TL one.

    6 months later the clutch is still going, couldn't have been that bad haha. You doing that job yourself?

    Cool color combo, I bet a thorough detail would do wonders for that interior.

    ATLP made a mean exhaust for this car.

    The clutch still moves, but it slips on anything over a quarter throttle now. Its getting really bad.

    I need to detail the interior as well.

    As for exhaust, I've been thinking of a J-pipe with either XLR8 or ATLP. We will see

    That is clean AF man. Those are my favorite body style TLs. I wish I could find one.

    Oh its far from clean. Not even in the ballpark. This car has exterior issues like you would not believe, but it's nothing I cannot fix. It's really the only reason that I own it lol

    Took the motor/trans combo out of the car to do all the work that needs to be done. I'll put the pictures in here tomorrow. The Accord was much easier to pull the motor/trans on, but the TL has quick disconnecting fuel lines and quick disconnects for the engine harness. Which is quite nice
