Thank you, thank you and thank you. I like to think that I'm funny although my wife begs to differ lol. I just like to have fun with this stuff. Working on Honda's is also like my vent, plus if I can help someone along the way that just makes it all that much better.

Thanks, it took a long time to decide which color I was going to go with so I put up a poll on Honda-Tech and let them decide. They ended up picking the color that I was leaning towards so it worked out!!

Thanks for the comment, it has taken a lot of patience, time and energy to get where I've gotten. Had to do a lot of relearning of a lot of this stuff. Feel free to ask any questions about anything.

Sorry I haven't updated the thread in a while but I've been very busy at work. Anyway I have one week until Import Alliance is here so it's crunch time. I will have TONS of updates over the next week!! Right now I'm in the paint booth so I need to get off of here and go shoot my first coat of clear coat on the parts I just painted!! Stay tuned!!
