Ska's Long-delayed tC Pics (56k, throw a pizza in the oven)

First off: I am in no way, shape, or form a photographer, nor do I play one on television!

Since today was PERFECT for a photo op after a solid 10 days of rain, I decided to take advantage at a couple different spots around town. Enjoy!





I think one of my first projects is going to be de-badging the front emblem. It'd look SO much cleaner that way.







Powder-coating the wheels black might look tight too, I haven't decided yet if I like that look enough to seriously consider it.









Yes, I realized immediately after taking this pic that my battery terminal cover was loose. That's what I get for jumping a buddy's car and then speeding home to play beer pong.





Previous problem rectified.





Wheel gap. I haz it.

Gotta love rolling on 17's though!







As you can see, I got the edition that was enhanced with whale DNA, as is evidenced by my car spouting water from it's blowhole.



4WD, engage! It's off-roading time!

Nice little car, Mat.

Good color, too...

I race one of those in Forza.

I wouldn't mind having that car if it was blue.

It grows on you a lot - although I've noticed it looks sweet from most angles, and from a few it looks kind of like it's got a bit of a bubble butt and a short hood.

They actually look pretty tight in blue too, this is custom-done:



Or if you want to stick with a stock color...gotta go darker.

Not bad Matt, treat it well and it will return the favor.


Our Father, who art in Autos, hollowed be thy frame. Thy Horsepower come, Thy torque be fun, in Imports as in Domestics. Give us this day our daily fuel, and forgive us our hooning, as we forgive those who hoon against us, and lead us not into chrome accents, but deliver us from rice. For thine is the Cam, and the Piston, and the Rod, for ever and ever. Or until they break.. Amen.

Matt! Very nice looking car - best of luck with it!

1 Thing I noticed - and my stock wheels suffer from it as well - CURBAGE






With the chrome wheels on the RSX - I'm at least 8" away from any curbs or other objects that reach out and do damage.
