I decided the tinting and clear would be waste of money. Last few days I had cops tailgate me for apparently no reason. I was upset the other day and told the cop dude to go ahead of me and he did not and told me to go.

Oh yeah sorry for my California lingo. They had a car fan sale a couple of days ago and I bought that instead. I can only imagine the harrassment I would go through if I had a tint. My dad was cited 500 dollars for a tint in the early 90s.

I bought my LX last year and have put about 5000 miles on it. Now have Ktuner, Eibach Sportline Springs, Smoked LED Strip side markers, and an Injen SRI. I don’t know what to do next but Im sure not stopping.

I just spoiled my car :D
hehe, , Ikon Motorosport OEM style spoiler, very good quality and fitment... didn't make any holes, just provided 3m tape...
Idk if this is exact same size and fitment as OEM spoiler, but I love it... I was going to get Si style spoiler, but I think this small one suits LX better

Started partial sound upgrade today... Sound deadened two front doors and door panels, but didn't have enough deadener left and I ordered wrong speakers... duh... now waiting for my speakers and sound deadener ...

Doors became much more solid and heavier, with quiet and solid sound when closing, stock speakers improved as well, I can hear them now :) But let's wait for real ones to show up

My speakers of choice are Alpine SPS-610 6.5-Inch 2-Way Type-S Series Coaxial Car Speakers, again, nothing super fancy or expensive... might replace them later for component speakers with an amplifier, but for now I think they should be more than enough.

For rear speaker I'm thinking about less expensive Rockford Fosgate R1675X2 Prime 6.75-Inch Full Range 2-Way Coaxial Speakers,

Rockville RW10CA 10" sub...

P.S. not trying to build SPL or SQ show car, just doing what I think is right without making more holes in my wallet lol

Is that an OEM Day/Night mirror? If so, how easy or hard is the install and how do you like it? Great build, thanks!
