    Thanks for the warm welcome! Looking forward to doing quite a bit on the car this summer. I'm working on a riser/platform for the rear for tool storage and to provide a flat cargo area with the rear seats folded, (toyed with idea of rear seat delete but I don't have a good place to store them). I'm really excited by all of the aero work I see on here, less because I'm super worried about fuel econ, but more because it's interesting. In pursuit of doing something original, I want to make air curtains for the front bumper. I'm also planning on a rear bar stiffener (sway bar), hitch reciever, hood struts, and contemplating a front recovery winch if I can find a solid place to mount it and have the extra storage space. I figure if I have a car that won't turn heads, I'll make it tilt heads to the side in confusion :P

    Curt 1.25" reciever from the homeless despot $115 shipped, took an hour to install without even jacking up the car. Ball mount not included, got that at a rummage sale for nothing.

    Blue LED DRL, any parts store has these in multiple colors, interchangable with certain interior bulbs. I have white leds for dome light and trunk courtesey light as well.

    Not running these Integra GSR wheels yet because I need smaller tires. Debating between Kumho Ecsta PA31's or Toyo Extensa HP's

    Haha, yeah I agree! I went out to mine the other day (which is black) and was wowed by the dirtyness.
