well i cannot let well enough alone. a guy backed into me the other day and i had to do some body work to the 83 S. it is red and that would not be my first pick for a car color but since the S is rare i wanted to leave it alone. now i need paint anyways so i figure i should make MY car how I would want it. so here are my new plans...
shave the side moldings. they are not in good shape, plus its missing a piece.
shave the roof rails. they too are an eyesore. i tried back-to-black, wax and other stuff to try to make em look good, i failed.
tuck the bumpers. i figured i can mess with the bumper supports and bring in the front and back bumpers 2 to 3 inches.
custom fabricate a bigger front lip.
shave the back window wiper.
now the most important part... color.
right now i am leaning towards gunmetal grey with red accents. the new civic si has this same color combination. its kinda like how if the S was made today, what colors would be available.
if anyone has any other ideas ir if you have done any of these things, gimme some hints. please.
here is what im thinking...
