timtx5's Comments:

I bought the car over 2 years ago now. I was never really intending to keep it for that long but have now. Got it back from the painters this week. Some new pictures at the bottom. Its different to say the least! Pictures arent the best as its in the shade somewhat there, looks much brighter in full light. Not perfect, like the bumpers are a little bent in places, but they were before and the car is over 14 years old!

Modification Listing

Currently undergoing a respray. Straightened and some small rust sections removed. All badges removed. Antennae removed. Top half is a glasurit silver, some new colour, very very bright. Bottom half is copper cyprus effect paint over black. Looks some wierd colours, from copper to almost lime green. And thats only in the both. Still some other small details I am yet to decide on!


3" mandrel bent exhaust with 3" cat from the tight 90 degree turbo pipe. I will have to replace it sooner or later I think.

Performance Comments:

I have ran a 14.8@95.6mph at the drags with a 2.5second 60 foot (slow), 10.5psi. My dyno figure was quite low, but more than a type R integra on the same day.

Before the respray. This fortunately did show how bad the paint was.

Another before picture

A heap of colours

Side rear of car, rubbing strips will be going back on.

Sparkles !

Very green side

Side on, bronze --> green at front

Rear up close

Too many colours

Front view, silver looks more 'sparkly' in real.
