lowering it is my next thing I'm doing. and i wash the engine bay every time i wash the car,and wash my car about once every two weeks. i like the way it came out, but when i get a CAI then the plastic cover is coming off and I'm painting the valve cover.

the color I'm using now is engine paint from autozone and the red rim is rustolium red paint and i clear coated them, they have been like that for at least a month now and i haven't seen any chips in the paint yet so it holding up rather well.

That condensation in the passenger headlight? if it is just take the headlight out and let it sit in the sun for a day, a hair dryer can work, but it needs to be hot for a few hours to really ensure ALL the moisture is out then run sealant around it again, mine kept leaking after I painted it lol.

The car looks really good though, I really like the ecotec sticker, sorta like the civic and the i-Vtec I actually like the RS badging, How did you get the Shifter off to paint it? I'm trying to paint my GF's shifter but I dont want to brake anything lol

Keep it up though! it'll look sweet dropped for sure!

ya im getting some lowering spring soon. and you start the car then put the car in neutral and put the ebrake on then you twist the chrome piece thats under the shifter down and you'll see a little spot where you can unscrew a piece and the shifter should come off, oh and theres a white piece thats inside the shifter make sure that you remember how it goes back together.

Was it hard to paint them? And what kind of silicon did you use to reseal them? I just made this account, and this whole forum thing is confusing, any tips to navigate around here better?

tint and drop! nice car.
what'd you use to paint your wheels? i did mine with just spray paint.
They help up during the summer but when it came to winter, ( in alaska )
they got all chipped, and i don't really want to dish out 200$ to get them powdercoated.

thanks for all the feedback. ya I'm still working on her, but money is tight right now and one of my friends has ss springs I'm gonna buy from him so i can get some more low. 1/2 isn't that bad a drop for 30$ lol. i got more pics coming also.

i painted my wheels with spray paint then when they dried i clear coated them.
and for the headlights i took it out again and tried to fix the leak, but sadly i don't know where its coming from.
