Post John1983 - 1992 MX-3
Decided i would start a work log seems i will soon have money to start working on my car

this is the day i brought her home Cant beat only paying $600 especially seems she came with 2 sets of rims i plan on selling the 18 inch drag rims as soon as I get a new set of tires for the 17s Image

this is over the winter as you can see not much has changed except for the bumper no longer being held on by zip tiesImage
heres a video I did just for the hell of it, I was bored. Quallity aint so good i was useing my cousins smart phone the valve tap sounds alot worse in the video Image
When I bought the car there was no exhaust from the cat back, I ran everything myself and I did it the poor mans way and bought some flex pipe and a universal muffler with exhaust tip. I plan on repainting entire car flat black.

Find a stock bumper and save yourself some grief. How's the drive train?

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Im thinking about doing flush mount led signal lights unless I can find a set of projectors for a low price with the signal built in and I have thought about going with the stock bumpers but Im kinda partial to these ones plus it gives me more of a challenge. As far as drive train goes its pretty strong but makes a squeeling noise when backing up not yet sure if its in tranny or at one of the wheels.

x2 on that one. Bodykits are for ricers and kids, besides they are sooooo outdated. Mx3 looks best with factory lip/spoiler imo

Well body-kit wise I still say to each his own, but the front bumper on OP's car is just done horribly. Granted he has it bolted down, but idk.. I just don't like it lol.

Don't you see the zipties?

I agree it looks like hell right now, but properly fitted and painted, I really like that bumper.

I can't find the example pic right now... it was a super glossy black car with the civic projector mod, IIRC.

The point I was making without wanting to criticize is that unless your going to add side skirts and some thing to the back bumper your bottom lines won't flow. If you plan to drive it in snow be prepared to do repairs every time you hit snow piles on the road.
