    Chris! Welcome back man, long time no see. Did you get the txt I sent you the other day? Glad to see you're still making progress, and that you got the mirrors working and installed.

    What's going on in the center console area?

    How difficult was it to put the 'lude seats in your car?

    Definitely like the ram-air thing. In theory and design it looks like it'll work alright. How's that fuel pump working out? I definitely like the wheels even though they're only 13", they do look good and should shine up nice.

    Do you think you're going to end up using that spoiler on it? Just curious, no other reason for asking.

    Let's catch up soon enough. Did you dad tell you the gold nugget DX coupe just across from Wolf park isn't there anymore?

    Re: gtmst3's 86 lx

    I dont think they're anything special. From what I remember I saw them in the Accord Catalog someone posted. They're just another type of wheel offered. I also believe they came on civics. I wouldnt get rid of them completely if youre going to get new rims. I did that...and kinda regret it as I now need a set of steelies to take the rims i have on my car off to sell

    Re: gtmst3's 86 lx

    first thing i did was change the hub caps then i threw on a quick intake put a thrush welded muffler on and moved the vacuum box



    sorry about the crappy pics but i only have a cell phone.
    i moved the vacuum box because i think it gives the compartment a cleaner look because i could hide most of the vacuum lines. also it gives me a place to move my battery to
