I've been working on and off on my ride, i guess it's time i posted some pics for you guys. Ill keep you updated as things go on.

I am sorry i have neglected the postings.

History:

Bought the car a little under 2 years ago. When i first paid for it it was about 2500, being that it had some fire damage as you will see in the first photo's. The fire damage was actually caused one day prior to the finaly purchase. So he knock down the price with the help of my haggling. At first i replaced the melted headlights and corner light (the after market clear, not crystal) and went for the usual hyper white junk. Driver side mirrors also replaced. As well as passanger when a crack was found. Small interior parts replaced here and there. thanks to the dealer and Justin. :p

What i kept pushing off for reasons i still dont understand is the replacement of the front bumper. In great condition overall, except for the driver side looking horrible as it was melted.

Here are some from when the car was bought:





Here are a few newer ones. I will update them later tonite:

You had to "haggle" down the price? I would be like "dude, wtf is this, you gonna do anything about it?" If he didnt do anything, I would have told him im gonna find another car. I wouldnt have gotten the car if they set fire to it the day before I bought it.

What actually happend to burn it like that?

Looking good now though. Very nice and clean. What are your future plans?

Temp plates. My buddys said to get it cause i love going over the curb to park straight. ;)

The whole dealership caught fire actually, 6 cars totaled. And my car was far away from the blaze, but from all the heat it melted. =/ Car was mint, and the guy said the insurance wasnt covering so he had no choice. And he wouldnt fix it, so i figure what the hell, there was no real major damage, all the wiring for the corner lights and headlights were complete.

My future mods would have to be Jtw cams. Possible nitrus, or turbo pending on how much money. Im very much wanting to go stealth. Got a new front bumper coming, fogs, switch, new mirrors.

The other option i've been pondering is an SE-R conversion. :D
Any advise on what to do would be great. Thanks for all the comments.

Last few things i've done is put in HID kit, and hardwired headlights.

Here are some more recent photos: (Folding mirrors, HID kit, stomung mid-pipe with stillen axle-back, soon to be replaced. =/)

are your gauges still accurate with se-r ones in there? i've seen it done before just wondering. cause the se only goes to 120 and the se-r goes to 140 and the tach redlines at diff. rpms, i thought it would throw it off a few numbers.
