YESSS! getting painted!!!!
I can't wait!

Damn bro. I haven't been on in a while. I see that you have been pretty busy. New grill, wheels, spacers....what else did you do? Wheels look balla. Can't wait to see everything on.
lol thanks man. I was actually thinking about picking up a couple more parts, but I think I've decided to man up and make a REAL purchase :) Hopefully I can back that statement up before the end of the summer, or at the WORST, around winter.

But as of right now I've purchased all the parts I wanted to by the time summer came around:

Vertex front bumper
Vertex side skirts
Vertex rear lip
OEM JDM rear bumper
Z-Edition Grill
Figs adjustable toe links
UGO replica roof spoiler
15mm spacers
Lug nuts
Wheels
Tires

My OTHER set of spacers are gonna be delivered tomorrow :lol: I'll swap them out and sell the V2's next week.

And I got some lug nuts finally. I'll post some pictures this weekend lol.

Wheels will go on as soon as I have time. I actually pretty much have to have them on before Tuesday or they won't be on for our first local meet on Sunday the 15th. Pretty much the only time I can get an alignment is Tuesday...

Why did you get rid of the Ichiba V2 Spacers?

:lol: My girlfriend definitely isn't thrilled about it. But I did manage to pick up the front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper, lug nuts, and wheels all used. So that helped for sure.

aww sucks that they didn't work with his setup.
Yeah, no big deal though. I should have checked before I bought them. V1's are here though, and as long as nothing comes up during the install, they will be on tomorrow morning.

And I haven't sold the V2's yet. I HAVE to have at least a 15mm spacer to clear my LS400 calipers with stock wheels. It just happens that my wheels won't clear without a spacer either so I couldn't put them on yet.

Just put a DIY for the front wheel stud replacement:

Still need to install my Figs toe links and get an alignment. I think the plan is to install the toe links Monday after my test, then get an alignment Tuesday after class.

I did put my grill on finally.

Thanks guys :approve:

I picked mine up used for $165 off clubrsx.com. My brother is a member there so I also browse the for sale forums for interesting things (mainly wheels).



In other news, I got an alignment today. It went WAY better than I expected. I love the whole stretch/poke/aggressive wheels thing, but I'm not a fan of massive amounts of camber. It may not be everyone elses style but I think it looks great the way I have things set up.

With that being set, my alignment specs are:


Left Front:
-2.2* camber
0.00* toe

Right Front:
-2.0* camber
0.01* toe

Left Rear:
-0.7* camber
0.09* toe

Right Rear:
-0.9* camber
0.09* toe

And my wheel specs are:

18x9 +20 with a 215/40/18
18x10.5 +41 with a 255/35/18

And that is BEFORE installing Figs toe links. I was going to install them today, but decided to hold off until I have more time. The way my install went on my rear lower control arms still haunts me :lol:

I'm definitely happy with things.

And yes, I'm going to post all this and NOT post any pictures :lol:

Hey Corey, did you do anything to protect the grill from flaking? I'm looking into clear bra for my Altezza Sport grill when I get it back. And sell me your emblem holder :lol:

I did not. The shop said it would be a pain to clear bra and he was worried about putting a clear coat over it so I'm just gonna live with it.
