Re: Sketch o5's 99 LX Sedan 5MT

thanks guys. i like the lip...not so sure on the hood bra, haha. i like it, but i dont think ill keep it forever. the only bad thing is that it held in some wetness, which got under the clear coat because of rock chips and murdered the paint under it, haha.​

**** passengers. they shouldnt be there in the first place, damn freeloaders.​

This is hilarious! ! Lol. Nice CG man. Love the simple look of it. The suspension and brake set up you did is basically what I was going to do. Except for the full coilovers. Lol

i would, but theres a decent sized rust spot right at the edge of the hood above the grille, so no fucks are really given about the hood or its paint at this point :lawl:

you should definitely do the full coilovers! haha. i couldnt imagine using anything other than coilovers...unless it was air, haha. the brakes were definitely an improvement over the stock i4 set up...i did them in preparation for a 5 lug swap, but ive since changed my mind on that.​

Nice. Yea. I was gonna go for the Legend GS swap but that's $200+ and that's not including the slotted rotors. That's just OEM replacements. I found some slotted rotors on tirerack.com for $70/ea. I would go on ebay but they're stuff for brakes is questionable. Lol.

Since now I know I can use the 96 prelude vtec rotors, I'm gonna go for those instead.

yeah, just make sure you get the vtec model prelude rotors, apparently they're different between prelude models...vtec needs the extra braking :lawl: you do have to at least use the accord v6 calipers with the prelude rotors though, because theyre slightly larger in diameter than the 4 cylinder rotors.

if you're looking at slotted rotors, i would suggest powerslot rotors. might be a little more than what you're looking at, but they're great. they're all i've ever used and i have no complaints.​

Yeah. That's what I was gonna go with. Tirerack.com has them for $70/ea. So V6 calipers and 96 vtec prelude rotors. Got it. Haha. My vtak will need extra braking too. Lol. I was driving to work and getting stuck in traffic that goes from 70 to 10 in like 2 seconds is hard on brakes. And during these braking times I can feel that the stock rotors not wanting to brake after a little bit. So I needed to up the stopping power.

And as far as the full coils go. Ill think about it. I have a custom set up I'm gonna piece together that'll cost less than coils but ill still have the height adjustability that full coils have.
