    Yikes.

    I'll have to agree with losing the stickers, and also the wing. IMO, "show-mods" on 1G's look like:barf:. If you insist on getting a kit though, look into the Drift style. I agree on the blue paint as well, or maybe a really glossy black. It's up to you though man, do what YOU like.:thumb:

    Also, if your car is stock, why do you have all those stickers?

    muncie,
    You need to get a nice set of wheels (stock steel wheels look better than what you have on there IMO) and some adjustable coilovers. That car is sitting higher than my mom's CRV.

    I'm glad you decided to lose the product stickers, now you should paint the car the stock 1st gen blue, I'm about to buy a Talon in that beautiful color. It will look very nice and clean. I would also lose go wingless and fill in the bolt holes on the hatch before the paint job. You will be surprised at how great it looks.

    :dsm:jay

    BTW: You should fix that missing lug bolt on your passenger rear.

    I would have to agree. Get some nice 17's and lower it a couple inches before you do anything else.

    You are not getting much help from these guys just a bunch of useless wise cracks. Why they like doing this:rolleyes: I will never know. Now let's get down to business.

    Go to www.grounddynamics.com they have the cheapest Drift Body Kit on the market besides getting one off of Ebay. You can get front $200.00,Sides $180.00, and Rear $200 =$580

    The Drift kit always looks good in Dark Colors. Bright colors don't look so great on it that I have seen (IMO).

    If you don't like the Drift Front End go to www.asylumms.com and get the Neo Combat VS Front for $299.00 and put the Drift sides and Rear on your car. That would really look new!!!(IMO)

    Asylumms also has a NEW Blitz Kit coming soon. So you could get that and be the only one with it.

    Now once you settle on a color (a Dark one probably) then go to www.autoglitz.com and get some 17 inch wheels and tires for as low as $679.00 for the set. They have some nice styles. Some six spoke and some five like the current showcars out there. $679.00 for a set of 17 inch wheels is the lowest I have seen for modern looking wheels/w tires.

    If you don't want to lower your car go ahead and get the 18 inch wheels and tires. They have some in white and some in Black or Gunmetal if you want the "Strict Racer" look. The 18"inch tire and wheels set is $1,000.00 and that is cheap for 18 inch wheels and tires.

    If you want a Carbon fiber hood I know where you can get a VIS Carbon Fiber hood for $449.00 and it is really high qaulity for a 92.

    I my opinion keep the wing, paint it Electric Blue or black, get the 17 inch wheels/tires for $679.00 or 18 inch Wheels/tires either white, black or silver for $1,000 and go for a Carbon Fiber Hood $449.00. Then put another Dragon on it. If you really want the Dragon definitely go with Black or Gunmetal 18 inch wheels for maximum road presence. You should get a lot of looks with this combination. Let me know you think Shiro (not you other guys.........:rolleyes: )

    For one, I'm sure at one point all you had was an intake. For two you're NT so your ability to talk trash is pretty low. At one point all I had was an intake too and yet I still thought it was ok to have a vision. JJay came up with a pretty thorough plan that is reasonable, no reason to be mean. I think that Shiro should definitely take some hints from those ideas and move forward with the car. 15" rims will NOT be enough bro, wait till you can afford 17s at least before adding rims.
