Your hat's on backwards four times. Car looks good. Would look even better with a hardtop.

ide like one, but i looked at prices and came to this conclusion

1. get a hard top even tho summer is just around the corner?

2. boost is for same amount


number 2 is prevailing

but i will buy a hard top eventually

Yea, they ain't cheap. Only reason I got one was my softtop failed me. I had to buy something, the duck-tape wasnt even holding. (you know your ****'s wore out when you can't duck it) I found a used one for $900 30 miles from home, so I got it.

Why'd you sell the honda?

Patsmx5 - i sold the honda for multiple reasons, it was swapped so it never ran the same after the swap, it idled funny because of the cams, i i always needed to fix somthing on it
the motor was leaking oil, (from many spots, cam seals, block>????? and oil pan)
it looked bad, rusted, old,
i just wasnt looking foward to replacing everything on it part by part
no matter how much money i spent,
how many name brand parts i got
or how fast it was
at the end of the day,,
it was just a civic...

I have the hid's in my low pros and they rock. I do wish the hella modules had a straight eyelid instead of the stepped one.

Which low pros do you have? Mine are from moss.
