    Is that steering wheel direct bolt-on? From an RSX correct?

    I just read through all 13 pages, great thread! Subbed.

    Yes, although the cruise control and air bag will not work because this steering wheel is off an AP1. 01-02 Accords have dual air bags and we need an AP2 steering wheel for everything to function correctly. I don’t really care because this is just a temp set up until I buy a Nardi wheel with a quick release. Thanks for the love bro, I hope I can update this thread real soon.

    Great mod, it will feel so much better. I always thought this wheel would have looked really good with a flat bottom.

    I feel like once I install this steering wheel I’m going to want to do a black interior conversion. :rotflmao:

    ^I considered that at one point, issue was I wanted to use Acura CL Type-S seats and they are full blown black. But then all the panels from the "black" 6GA interior are actually charcoal (dark gray). Being OCD I would have had to paint all the interior trim/panels black and I didn't want to go down that road.

    Same. I'm keeping the quartz interior in mine because of that lol. Too bad the Acura didn't come with gray leather seats.

    I’ve actually seen someone get their whole interior professionally painted and it came out pretty good. But that’s too much work lol.

    Guys.. I bit the bullet today and bought some coilovers. However I’m a little bit ashamed because they’re Ebay as fucc, but they were too cheap to pass! Will post some pics when I get them.

    Well.. as promised, here they are! MaXpeeding Rod coilovers. :rotflmao: if you guys are familiar with Hoonigan's, then you'd know they have the same exact coilovers on their E36. They beat the living piss out of that car and the coils are still good, so if these are good enough for them, they're good enough for me. And don't worry these coilovers will hold me over until I save up for something nice. :waytogo:

    Well.. after one year of driving stock, ya boy finally installed the coilovers. Shout out to my friend for letting me use his driveway to work on my car. Feels so weird driving lowered, the front and rear still have about a two finger gap but I'll adjust it later down the line. I'm just super happy I finally got this done. :waytogo:

    how do you like the ride and feel of the new coilovers? I feel like even on a mild drop it would feel miles better than the old boaty OEM suspension. I've been considering a set of the CXRacing coils because I've ran them on my VW's before and loved them!
