    My sister's EG sedan. '95 LX 5 spd. I built this car for her about 2 years ago and she hasn't crashed it yet... Guess that means it's time to further improve upon it. This started as a $400 shell. I ordered wheels last week for it. should get pretty sick pretty quick. looks kind of funny right now, because I already did all the work to fit the wheels that are coming, just last week.


    Mods:
    Built D15B7 (the head is machined quite a bit anyway)
    EGR Performance Slotted rotors
    EGR SS braided brake lines
    EGR R4S Track/ Street pads
    KYB GR-2 shocks
    adjustable lowering springs
    Custom camber links
    Pioneer speakers throughout
    Pioneer 10" sub
    Pioneer head unit
    6000K HIDs
    White/clear corner markers
    Cheap roof rack




    Heres a recent shot of it.

    This thread came to a grinding halt because I was chasing a problem with my sister's EG. and I'm just SUPER busy with 4 different builds right now.
    her car had been slowly dying. I built this motor a few years back with some used/ factory head studs. (knowing I was breaking rule #1 to building a HONDA motor)
    I assembled it anyway because I only had $155 in the entire engine build. (aside from the machine work done to the head.)
    I am very pleased to say, the motor went 50,000 miles before the bolts had stretched.
    So now that motor is out.



    and since I've got this car down... I'll be making a ton of changes this week
    New ARP head sutds
    New steering rack
    New transmission
    New tie rod ends
    New wheel bearings
    New slave cylinder
    New Master Cylinder
    New idler bearing
    New head gasket
    New belts
    New seals and gaskets
    New wheels are here. (and painted) pics soon.
    An Alignment
    Bleed the brakes again
    and powder coat the valve cover to match the wheels
    I'm sure I'm forgetting some stuff. check back soon to see more.

    I did a set of 15x8 Bassetts in white for her. and they turned out amazing...
    This is the HONDA Polar White that I am soo fond of. Single stage, with some extra clear added to the final coat.

    No, Ron isnt getting anything shiny or fancy, just pure functionality. The white bay is my other ongoing project.
