Thanks Josh. I know how long you've been waiting for me to get some pics up!!!

I still might do red-outs in the future, I just f-ed it up the first time and didnt feel like re-ordering more red vinyl.

I will probably lower the car another 1" all around to tuck the tires a bit, after I move to FL, for now she's staying this high so I can pack her to the gills and load the roof up with a cargobox and my bike.

That's right, I wouldn't want to go any lower if I was about to haul a crap load of stuff. When are you moving?

Yeah, do the red outs again! What kind of interior LED's did you use?

Hey Al, was it a PITA to get those LEDs lights installed for your license plate? I was going through the sedan diy and it looks like a pain just to switch out those lights...wtf.

I searched on our forum and there was a couple pics...but they are not helpful. lol

Hey AL, Looks real clean. Yeah need to try and get those red vinyl on the back taillights. Going to try and do mine this weekend. I finally got around to ordering the other sheet.

See you just motivated me. Think I am going to paint my calipers and headlights. Why not? Nothing better than a SportX.

interesting, after putting newer shocks and springs in our SX it sits a lot like yours now, maybe a little higher but not much. our's was never 4x4 like everyone elses stock pic i see. can you take a straight on side shot so i can compare. BTW, the RPF1's look good, i think they have black ones too now in those sizes.

It's not terrible. You pop off those 2 inner tail bulb access covers, pop off the screw on the inside handle, remove the security cover thingy and then carefully pull from the inside holes to pry the push-snaps. then you can get right at the bulbs. just make sure to get good 194 leds.. the first set I bought burned out on me pretty quick, so I've opened it up twice now.

looks great Al!
Thanks Emerson!! I was going for the same look you've shown us all over the years.. the 'stylewagon' stance.

Ya I'm thinkin of redding out the whole housing except the reverse lamps, switching the amber corners to white and giving that look a shot, since so many people say that sportx red-outs looks too honda, I'll put my own spin on it.

Yes, you do.. and you'll love it more than your 2.75 srt kit ;)


SO sick! Go a tad lower after you get to FL ;)
Thanks Travis!!! oh it will ;) So the guy who mounted my rims was like, "damn there is a ton of mounting tape on the inside barrels, these wheels are have really been whored out!!" haha

you said you went to 01' sedan springs right? prob did lose some height, damn sportx suspensions must be taller/stiffer or something, cuz they sit like trucks stock!!!


Looking hot bro.

I think Davie has no choice at this point!! lol, gonna be a blast checking out the meets down there!! looking forward to a sportx meet, haha, so rare these days.

Haha...nice! Can't wait to see that photoshoot.

Thanks Al! I am going to try this tomorrow. I will post pics and get a DIY thread since there isn't technically one.

Hahahahaha! Yeah, they're like herpes... Except everyone loves them! :p

Glad you have them mounted and looking sick... I kind of wish I didn't sell them. Good news is that I know you'll take super good care of them. Oh, and thanks for the credit in the first post ;) and thanks for waiting lol
