Nice work on your CF hood and like the S2K seats! Colour Coordination spot on! Keep on the good work...

No, no. The new one is just the SAME MODEL as the one that was stolen. Hence why I was so happy to have the new one; I already knew what to do with it. =)

i never said that you sweared at me, i said that you resorted in obscenities. now obscenities isn't always swearing. what i mean is you directly insulted me with the prozac comment and the immaturity comment. tell me how that ISN'T offensive? i never said you cussed, the only thing i mentioned about cussing is that i wouldn't stoop so low as to offend other people with swearing. the only swearing i did was a figure of speech. for example, crap dude! and i don't want to start crap with you. (hint about the crap relation to my bleeped out words?) and and yes you did imply about the mentioning of your ricer past. i never said anything about you being a ricer, and never did i imply anything significantly close to that, yet you still put it worth mentioning. i only pointed out what i see out of your car, and what fixing you might be able to do to it. why else did you mention your ricer past? as with your missing panel, it looks a lot sleeker and clean when the wires are hidden whereas if you have them out in the open it looks messy and unprofessional, so why not do it now? it'll sure boost the looks factor on your interior. as with your comments, what you posted on mine sure doesn't appear to be a neutral comment. first off you said it was overstated, then you said i could afford to be overstated with an H22. now what i hear is that it will still be overstated, regardless. that's not the look i'm going for so of course i'll reply in disagreement and the "no, just no." doesn't help either bud. when you go out to comment on someone's car, keep into consideration how you word your statements, then maybe problems such as this could be prevented. otherwise others would take your opinion the wrong way; and your "clarifications" aren't too decent either. maybe try it without insults, then it would be acceptable. i could careless if you delete my comments, but i'm choosing to keep mine open. your opinion matters as much as the next person, and i respect that entirely. i just want to end this nonsense now. so if you'll excuse me, i'd appreciate it if no further comments were to be made (even in response to this message). thanks.

...Perhaps I've simply misunderstood you, but equally you seem to have misunderstood me. Under no circumstances did I swear at you. If so, it would have shown up with asterisks, as yours did. At no point did I imply that you implied anything about my ricer past, although your comments could be interpreted that way by others. The clarity of my statements were intended to show facts. The GSR are seats in because they are leather and they are comfortable. As for the wiring, the missing panel was temporary, why would I bother hiding something that would only be hidden later? That doesn't say anything about modification knowledge. Oh, and my wheels are 15"s.

Also, to clarify my comments about your car, it's called the proper way to criticise. I criticised first "I think you're car is too overstated" followed by a compliment "But once you get the faster engine in there, it'll be good." My assessment was not entirely negative. If I was not clear on that, than I apologize. I'm clarifying now. If that doesn't solve our communication problems, then perhaps I just ought to request that my comments be wiped from your profile, and your comments be wiped from mine. Would that be a diplomatic solution?

ooo prozac!! ***** dude, i only submitted my opinion on your car as you did on mine. the least you could do was respect that instead of resorting in obscenities, now that my friend, is immature. i never brought up any accusations or implementations about your "ricer past". i just pointed out things that i personally see as incorrect and not installed correctly. i'm not here to start ***** with you, i'm just expressing my perspective on your car. although i did not agree with your opinion, at least i took it into consideration. i don't have to stoop as low to start cussing at you. with your comment about your gsr seats, why would you install something that doesn't fit correctly? although the bolts match up, it still doesn't look right. as for your wires, there are methods of hiding them, but it seems your knowledge is very limited to these type of modifications.

Hmm. Someone didn't take their prozac this morning. I should point out I have never attempted to hide my ricer past.

So, let's make some things clear: I used to have a show white/red interior. I still have pics somewhere, in case you feel you need proof to dissaude you from your immaturity.

The backseats are Integra GSR. They do not fit exactly. The bolt holes do, and that's what makes them safe to use and operate. The back panels simply do not line up.

I'm currently stripping the paint from my interior and going back to stock. Most people would consider this a good thing.

Wires? Oh, well if you noticed, my dc 12 volt console ISN'T THERE. No, I'm not hiding wires, there's nothing to hide them behind.

Finally, my emergency brake cover, as clearly shown and stated, was replaced by a black leather Del Sol ebrake cover.

Any more questions I can answer?

haha i can be over stated compared to your 14 wheels, and your enging, who cares if i do get a h22 or not still looks better than your ha ,so where i guess. peace,and your interior pic, dont you know how to hid wirings, and what happen to your back seats? doesent look like they been installed right, look like you wanted to do interior paint job on your car, but failed horrbly?, what happen to your emergancy brake cover? oh well people have their own opinion, and heres mine. since you left one on mine peace.

Darker Tint is illegal in Texas Rims, er... Not sure about. Maybe. Friend of mine has some gunmetal JDM Buddy Clubs I might get, but... eh.

just search on ebay or anywhere really for b20 or b20 or crvtec they'll run you from 600.00 for just the crv engine to 1000+ bux for a crvtec engine with a vtec head on the top

make sure you have a ratchet that fits PERFECTLY.. and use a breaker bar.. (put a pipe on the end of the bar to give you more leverage) and pull till it "breaks free"

I'll agree with you on the money situation. Forget getting the interior painted and go for a "B" engine. Forget looks, it's all about speed, power, and more speed. You have a hatchback so you can play around a little. Get some tint also. I think you have some creative idea's in mind, just go for it!!!!

I'll take your suggestions into consideration, but I require money. Money I do not have.And wheels, having already been done once, will likely not be done again for quite some time. I have no steady income, but a steady influx of bills. I'm just happy I afford getting the trim painted. Perhaps I can tackle the window tint. The exhaust is full cat back and I happen to like it. That's one thing I'm sticking with.
