Do it up man, spray bomb, sand, spray bomb, sand, clear. Hahaha. I really love CRX's, but I'm afraid I'm too big for one.

ummm.... idk what you look like, but i'm gonna say no you're not...
I wish i had a picture of this. there is a huge guy (tall and wide) that lives by me that rolls around in a slammed CRX. It looks ridiculous because the car looks like it is going to scrape when he's driving. It's just all around funny because he is a tattoo artist and has a bunch of tattoos and piercings and his woman looks the same. Is it comfortable? I doubt it, but they do it. haha

Dude you don't know how pissed I am... I got the HKS catback... but the exhaust is all welded and one piece on it right now... with a fricken cat delete (resonator in place) and no muffler.


So I have to find someone with the stock cat... that way I can bolt up my HKS catback...

6' tall, around 280 lbs. I fit in my neon great, but I feel like when I get out people think "Fat guy, little coat"

The CRX looks awesome man, I can't say how much I love the car. It looks great in one color instead of 3.

I don't know if I posted about my headlight issues... but my low beams have not worked since I've owned the car.

I checked the basics... grounds / new bulbs / etc....

Still wouldn't work..

So I took the electrical tape and wire loom off the wiring harness and the wires were corroded to the point where I touched the wire and it fell apart...

So I spent part of the day resoldering in new wires and now I have headlights.

Shazaam! :D

Going gamblin this weekend with the folks for their anniversary... so no work to the rex.... come next week I'll be getting the exhaust welded on.. (thank god)

Yes, talking about the exhaust, is it a powdercoat from the factory or painted?
