Car will be painted dark blue. . like the doors. . It looks grey in certain light. .

And the bumper was from a friend in Cali. . . Along with the 88-89 JDM tails. . that was a lucky find!

The pole is a love or hate thing. . People like, people dislike.

It came on the bumper already. All i needed to do was wire the thing up. . so, might as well wire it. . otherwise i would have a hole in my plastic bumper. . .

I like it. . .especially the little honda H on the top of it. Razz

Thanks for the compliment on the car. . it has been a long process to get it where it is today. . .lot's of blood, seat and tears. . .literally. .

Front bumpers?? not much that i am aware of. Some bumpers come with the bumper pole and others with the fog light holes. . some come with a lower lip. . . but overall the bumper does not look too different from the US one. It is the fenders, radiator support, headlights, and the hood that are really different.

Yea. . long story. . the car is painted. . The guy that sprayed it was not happy with the way things came out. . so he is repainting the entire car again. . .

I need to learn patience. . The car looks good. . i just saw it a few hours ago. . but it will end up looking GREAT with a little more patience from me. . and the body shops guys keen eye. . He caught some things that i barely noticed. .

So, that is the update for now. . keep you all posted. .

Long story. .(here is the condensed version) I pretty much gave this guy his start in the Fix-up-an-import industry. After he did my car 6 years back, he was working at a place called Uprising Autobody. I went to shows lots of events back then and recommended so many people go to him, that he eventually went out on his own. He has been busy non-stop since then. So, i am getting a hook up when it comes to getting the entire car repainted and all the dents, dings, and things installed on it. . . My bill is $550.00. That is it. . He had to get the paint outta that . . but beside that. . that is what he charged me for everything. I think that is a GREAT deal.
