  • 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.

    This is something i made with my brother and cousin

                  So i as i mentioned i sold the car back to my brother and i my buddy sold me his AGP DB2, so i'll be switching this thread to my 2nd AGP DB2 #2175. The car is originally from Texas and it was either shipped or driven to Oklahoma. It was there for a few years and then my buddy bought it back in 2007 or 2008, and drove it to Utah. He owned it for about 9 years, until about 3 weeks ago i purchased it. Sadly the motor isn't original, the head cracked on him so it was replaced with a USDM B18C. The interior is pretty much complete, and close to flawless. Everything is intact, and it even has the floor mats that still read Integra. The chassis has 114,747 original miles. Not bad for a car thats about 25 years old. My plans for this one is to try and keep it strictly era correct so 90's and just cruise around in it. Since i was working on the black DA, i was already getting parts for it but I'm now switching them to the DB2 aka TOR2GA (Turtle in english, and the 2 is for part 2 since i sold my first one like an idiot lol). I'll get more pictures of what I've purchased in the past couple weeks. I plan on going with Mugen MR5 and possibly Recaro LS seats and mugen pedals, as well as JDM power folding mirrors.

                        Thanks man! It needs some work, I'll be getting the whole front end painted in a few months, and get my JDP lip paint matched. I paid 4200 for it. Might be a little steep but I needed another one to replace my old one.
