    Here it is, my first DSM build thread. And my first DSM !

    I'll try to update this thead as the restoration/mods go on the car.
    As everything now go on FB pages, we are losting a lot of good technical information and forum are more and more empty.
    So i decided to keep track of my build right here. And maybe it will help someone one day..!

    I'm Alex, i'm from Canada (a french canadian!). I'm 31yo and i've been in the automobile industry since i'm out of school.
    Started first in mecanic then as an automobile painter and now as the last 5y im in the insurance as an collision field adjuster.

    I've had some cool project car all build/tune by me
    Rsx-S
    Mazdaspeed protege
    EG civic turbo/forged
    sh** load of other Civic

    So thats it for now, i'll drop some photos a long as the build go. got the car for 2 years so i'll have some old pic to show the evolution.


    As i bought it 2 years ago, with white trim LOL

    Now, as the winter as come, its time to wrench on the Talon again. This winter, the plan are to clean the underside.
    Poly bushing kit, new brakes all around, new exhaust, tune up of the suspension/steering (bushing, ball joint, bearing etc.).
    And the come back of the OEM rear LSD, as the previous owner change the rear diff for a non-lsd one.
    Have been lucky to source one local.


    I broke 5 of these bi***(rear upper table, left and right) its gonna be fun to fix this

    Really nice work on that strut tower rust repair! I'm betting you could make a nice buck doing this for other people.

    Thx! i really enjoy red car. Its easy to bring a high gloss on this color and its way more forgiving than the black !
    A good 2step polish and some wax!
