Just finished up my face lift on my 06 wagon. Now has new custom mixed paint (carbon black) with a satin finish with a little bit of midori green off of the 1996 honda civic hatch , real carbon fiber roof and mirror caps with a high gloss finish, custom "I" badges in midori green and real carbon fiber. Also the headlights and tail lights have been taken apart and painted carbon black and midori green as well. Just had new windshield installed monday.

Only thing that I need to do is refinish the wheels in the color I have chosen.



Ignore the wheels they are going to be refinished, same paint scheme but midori and carbon black.

Thank you, I am a custom painter/fabricator and just want my car to be clean and not so normal. I think I have accomplished my goal I tried neon orange first and the neon did not last with the sun a few days of baking in it and the fading was horrible.

I did the roof, mirrors, emblems and all paint myself. The only thing I had someone else do was the windshield install.

It's not what I "did", but what I got. I had my fuel system custom made, and it is sick! I can't wait to put this stuff in! Sadly that won't happen until my motor is finished being built. Oh well. I don't know about anyone else but this is sexy to me!

- ID 1000 injectors
- Deatschwerks 301 fuel pump
- Aeromotive 1000 FPR
- Aeromotive fuel rails
- Parker Stainless Steel lines
- Parker Black Nylon lines
- Fragola Black - 6 fittings
- Earl's - 6 adapters
- Fragola Fuel Filter
- Fragola "Y" fitting
- Rubber Hangers

Now all I need is my looms. I'm making some out of 301 Stainless Steel to keep the lines off the Intake Mani so I don't scuff up my Powdercoat.

Dang that is sick.

All the lines/fittings/rails/FPR/filter ran me just over $700.00. Assembled and pressure tested. Each of those Fragolla fittings costs $15.00 - $25.00. A vendor on NASIOC did them for me and he did an excellent job. It's a bit cheaper if you go with the blue/red anodized fittings. Maybe $50.00 less. He can get whatever you want. I wanted top of the line hoses and fittings. Really nice guy and Subbie enthusiast. Message me if you want info.

Fitted a generic earthing kit and replaced my vacuum hoses with turbosmart variant.
Checked cold start setting for E and went for an 'on boost slide fest'

Than came home and contemplated putting my wagon up - For Sale/Feeler - saw a nice SC400 that caught my eye and I fancy something new as a project

Didn't do anything to mine. Helped someone else drop their transmission, install the transmission, drop the transmission and install the transmission. In the end it was all working properly
