  • Third build, First build thread and intro

    Hey everyone. This is my third build and first build thread. I wasn't really planning on making a thread but my fellow G2IC member and Utahan unified112 encouraged me to make a thread this time. So here i am.

    A little background. I'm originally from Pasadena, CA, and I've been living in Utah for the past 11 years. Being from Pasadena i would constantly see FF-Squad roam around Pasadena, as well as the car that made me fall in love with the DA chassis, Greg Morgans "Gold Standard" DA. My older brother and his friends were always into cars, my dad has been a technician for the past 40+ years so i was around cars constantly. I picked up my first Integra back in 2007. It was a 1990 RS (blade silver), completely stock. I had it for about 6 years. During those 6 years i made a few mods which i'll list at the end and i purchased a '97 spec JDM B18C during the last year that i owned it (never was swapped). I was driving to a mission reunion (LDS mission, mormon, whatever you'd like to call it), and a little old lady took a stop sign and i t-boned her. The DA was totaled so i tried to save as much as i could. I tore my PCL and was out for about 8 months.

    I then purchased a 1991 CRX SI (tahitian green) after i was cleared from physical therapy but only had it for 3 months. I sold it to my older brother who loves EF's and i found myself a 1992 Integra GS-R (Aztec green pearl). I spent a lot of time on the DB2, sourced little parts that i always wanted and then right when i had it to where i wanted it, my dumb ass started parting it out and sold the shell... I know im an idiot lol. I had decided i was done messing with cars, and i bought a 2005 Acura RL as a Daily.

    During this whole time my older was rear ended with his CRX and was totaled as well. He bought a black DA from California. One day he was driving and the left ball joint snapped off and ended up on the curb. The car sat in my backyard for a little over a year. I always regretted selling my DB2, and my brother would try and sell me the black DA, but I wasn't really interested, until a week ago when i decided to buy it off him and start again.

    So here i am. This build won't be anything like my DB2 build, its just to cruise... at least for now. I want to try and keep it as time era as i can. Well enjoy, and sorry if i bored you with my little story.

    Feedback is always welcomed.
