Thanks. Forgot to say, CD5 Accord front and rear lips. A friend of mine who has owned 3 S2Ks drove it today and really liked it. Since he currently doesn't have an S (just a manual TSX for now) he gave me a pair of red AP2 floor mats. I'm considering putting them in the car and adding some other red accents...not the extreme of the red SiR 5th gen interior, but sort of like what Dad's doing with his white accents.

The S2K floor mats don't really fit well, but I like the color combo so much I want to do the valve cover and H badges in New Formula Red (R-510).

So, I got my fog light tweeter cover today to go with the switch I got last week. Installed the relay too.

The only step left to activate my fogs is to install them. It'll be so much fun Roll Eyes I'm inviting a few friends to help me with it.

Are you using a factory harness or just running the one control wire straight to the lights?

Factory harness. It's infamously hard to find but I found it after only 15 minutes or so of fishing for it. From what I've read and been told, the fogs are just plug and play after I cut the holes in the bumper.

To do list by Skyline (fall 2013):
All the stuff in the "before summer" future mods section
Acquire and install 92 center console
EK9 shift boot
Mount door lights (not necessarily wire)
Install EL cluster
Get small oil leak checked/fixed and clean the bay
K&N filter for the V2
Install Vibrant header (if it fits properly)

Doesn't sound like a lot, but combined with bringing the 3rd gen back into shape and other plans I have my plate is going to be pretty full this year.

I went to Charlotte today (didn't drive) and took lots of pictures with my regular camera, but the best photo I took today was less than a mile from my house, using my camera phone.

The most random cellphone shots always turn out to be some of the best.

Indeed, I've been trying to get a cool picture of the car that hides its current blemishes for awhile now, went to Home Depot and saw the sun setting behind it next to I-95...

I'm considering adding an SH to my stable in a few years, after driving Dad's today. I want something newer and still sporty, but not as tempting to modify as this car. Since SH's aren't as tuning-friendly as other cars that interest me (5G bases, S2Ks, TSXs) I can still focus modifications on this car.

Nah, the only way I'll have more than 2 is if I buy parts cars. I'll probably pass the 3rd gen onto Dad...
