    This car was a hand-me-down from my eldest brother.
    He blew the engine and let me keep the car if I promised to work on it. Circa 2010
    All work done on this vehicle was done in garage by myself and with the help of said brother.

    Is that a stock front bumper with the mustache cut out ? Looks more like an aftermarket one thats been cut. Im looking for a good stock style one that I can cut.
    1. dskagr
      When the car was monarch green was it had an aftermarket bumper. Currently have an OEM with the mustache cutout

    Looks really good and how much did it cost for parts and all to make it awd? I've got a 1999 gs and I'm wanting to make it awd
    1. dskagr
      I just found a cheap donor car, so it depends on how much you can find one. But for the gs I believe you'll have to do the whole custom evo awd route rather than the gsx way.

    Your 2G looks amazing.

    Making me miss my DSMS. I kind of gave up when parts are so hard to find for it. And I dont mean mechanical parts. I mean window seals and interior. I wish someone remade that stuff. I would be looking for my 6th DSM.

    This engine bay is simply un-real.

    That car is beautiful is that the stock color or did you do a respray?
    1. dskagr
      It is the stock monarch green

    2. Tuna no crust
      It looks really good I'm looking to get back into dsm's I sold my 98 rs over 8 years ago and have regretted if ever since.

    The stanced look of this car is just gorgeous af OMG I assume you're running some degree of camber to get those wheels to fit underneath the car, right?

    Also how did you manage to get your engine bay looking so clean and neat? It looks like half of the stuff is missing honestly (power steering pump and reservoir, power steering lines, main fuse box, cruise control solenoid and throttle cable just to name a few things :D )
    1. dskagr
      I was just running the standard natural camber that the car gets when lowering it. Those xxr's had a healthy stretch, and a lot of pulling and rolling all around.

      Alternator Relocation, MR2 power steering, and no cruise control, although I could have tucked that as well. Fuse box is in the passenger side airbag spot.

      I totally dig the clean engine bay look you've got going on. It's definitely something I could see myself screwing about with over a weekend in pieces here and there. Would you mind if I pressed you for ideas about how you cleaned it up and more specific talk about how you did it?

    Hi please tell the size of rims and whell
    so pretty car!!
    1. Michael0110
      I did my research when I was looking for mines ;)
      He is running 18X9.75+20 with 225/40 tires.
      You will have to pull/roll fender to run that large.

      I am answering everything for him LOL !

      Take a look at his stancenation page, everything is in it:
      Michael0110, Dec 20, 2015
    I used an Image of your car in a video I made. Just wanted to let you know. I didn't realize it until I saw you on the forums, I originally got the image off of google.

  13. TheMahlerMan
    What color are your rims bro?
    1. Michael0110
      It is chromium black ;)

    Beautfiul car man, wish i could hear it Idle.
  15. Michael0110
    She is just beautifull!!
    I wish I had your skills and transform mine like yours.

    Btw can you tell me what rims you are using and what is their size? As well as tires?
    They fit so nicely!
    I am thinking using the same ones :3

    nasty and beautiful!

    My first car was an eclipse this color. I didnt like the color all that much at the time but now, even more so after seeing yours, I really like it. Great car you have there.
  18. Matthew Hamilton
    Damn bro, this is by far in the top 5 cleanest 2g's i've seen, i hope i can get into my car more and fix it up and make it as clean as yours.
  19. tylersevo
    It's cars like yours and Nick's that keep me from repainting my car. Those of us with clean monarch green cars are in a very small group.
