This part probably took me the longest.
Wetsand, mask doors and trunk, clean all the jams, sand all the jams, wipe down complete body with wax and grease remover, then sealer primer.

Kind of looks like the 7th gen green. I had a 96 Galant that color, it had some sweet pearl effect in the sun.

I like that coil bracket. Is it mounted to the manifold like stock, or do you have it bolted to the block?

Phase one of three completed. My main goal was to remove all the shitty green rattle can. They didn't even clean and sand before they hit it with that crap.

Looks good, dude. I like the color and the shortened rear bumper. When you paint the other pieces, color match that red reflector. That car has come a looooong way.

Thanks man. Ya it's been a long road but its getting there. I was thinking of something on the lines of color matching or just deleting it using plastic weld. That or get a JDM rear bumper.

found a smoking deal on a bolt on BEP housing for the HX-35
at a later date i will most likely make a manifold for the 12cm holset housing. but i am not planning to max the car out yet.
