Hello all.

New to the club...

Had a indigo 04 TSX since 2013, had it repainted in 2018, then wrecked it the same summer. Fall of 2019, I picked up a pearl white 05 in great shape with only 147k on it. Have done a few bolt on mods so far, and plan to do an all motor build in the future.

My old baby...

Thanks, and I'm sorry you can relate.
The 04 just had what you can see, plus a short ram. Was lowered on BC Coils and had a fresh paint job and engine transplant. Never planned to do any work to it when I first got it cuz I just wrote off an 89 Accord that I put a ton of money into. About 3 months after I had it painted, having a full build in mind, she got wrecked.

05 mods:

K&N CAI
Greddy Evo II cat back
Yonaka coils
Rothsport Racing quick release hub
Gold Momo Race Wheel w/matching shifter
Euro-r grill, hood trim, shroud, emblems/badges
Euro-r pedals
STI front lip

I have the following parts that are still on my to do list:
BTCC '99 Vauxhall Vectra carbon fiber wing (in the process of fabing up some custom mounts)
JDM 04-05 clear corner headlights
Racing Hart rear camber/toe kit, Skunk 2 front UCA and BC Racing coils (from my 04 TSX)
1/2" - 3/4" more drop

With the ongoing pandemic, parts are taking forever to get here. Still waiting for the following in the mail:
06-08 JDM tail lights (Russia)
19x8 +50 BBS Progit DTM RG 351s made in Japan (Japan) w/either 235/35, or 225/40 Michelin Super Sport tires)
07-08 TL Type S Brembo front caliper kit w/ Centric slotted rotors and Brembo pads (US)

Future mods will include headers, intake manifold, tb, pulleys, cams, reflash, 22mm rear sway bar and whatever else I can think of. If any of you guys have any suggestions regarding what I should do next, please feel free.

As you can see, this was before I had the horn button hooked up. The 3.5 mm female jack and wire are dangling under the wheel hub. At this point, I was still trying to figure if and how the coiled wire was going to work.
