    Hey everybody-- it's been a while since I've posted, and that's mainly due to my life being a rollercoaster as it comes to work/life balance during 2017-2018. The last thing I attempted were TruHart coils, but actually decided against it after realizing how garbage the roads were on my regular commute. Long story short got a new job in Autumn of last year, and things have been great; I've gone from having 6 debts down to just one-- and I actually get to go home after work now.

    So, here's my current build--

    2013 Civic LX 2D (FG3)
    15x6.5 BBS RG Gold w/ Machine Lip (c. 1989) *Ordered from UP-GARAGE
    Open-End Italian lugs from Discount Tire
    Buncha Ricey stickers (not shown) -- Peeking RX-78 from Never-content.jp is my favorite.
    30% Tint (w/ Ecogreen)

    I used to have an HIC rear visor, but the extreme heat here made it peel off in my driveway.

    Future Add Ons

    -'JDM' Pink Reverse Light Overlays (On Order)
    -Some sort of Exhaust, not too loud ( Taking Suggestions! )
    -JDM Hazard Light button
    -Front Lip

    *I had to have these wheels' center bores widened by about 4.5mm to fit at the local CNC shop-- they're OEM Mazda RX-7 FC3S equipment. The RS is the flagship for BBS, but the RG are almost identical and forged, too. You can't see them in this, but they have little BBS red decals on the inner lip, too.

    ..I get revved at a lot now.

    Added the reverse light overlays today-- didn't do as bad I thought I'd do. I got one tiny set of wrinkles in the driver side corner, but they're so unnoticeable I have to really search to find them. They're transparent 'JDM Pink'.

    I'm not sorry about my ricey stickers.

    Looks good :thumbsup: Don't ruin the picture with blocking the plate like that. Make it a bit better and use white at least ;)
