    CR-Viper (new pictures/updates often)

    Since i did a few mods, I figured I'd post them here, and I'll scrap the other thread on this car in a while -

    Things I've done in the last Month
    -Started Mesh Grille Construction (in the shaping phase)
    -Changed aftermarket tails to stock - blacked out the blinkers
    -Straightening out shifter and shift knob, and lengthening the rod (in progress)
    -Lowering shift knob
    -I-vtec Chrome logo for rear window
    -Custom Heat shield for intake
    -Unbolt-paint silver engine bay
    -Acura RSX-S covers ordering for engine bay
    -Waxed (first one after paint job)
    Some other stuff (of course)

    And the start of a picture list:

    More to come - need to clean the pollen off and get more current Exterior and finish my shift rod - I'll make a DIY for it while I'm at it - Basically lowering the knob and redirecting the rod lower to make it more in a position to hold onto - for those who like to grip the shifter at all times - I drove a lot of sticks and that seems to be my favorite spot - so I'm dropping the knob.:

    Precisely why I want to just lower the shift enough that I can rest my hand on it, and keep it out of veiw through the front window. It sticks up over the dashboard, and dropping it down may improve the aesthetics as well. Maybe put a small shift boot on it so it doesn't just look like a metal rod.

    I think the stock tails with smoked blinkers look so much better with the blue paint.

    hehehe.

    I'm doing a swap of the shifter, but that's just to put it lower - not to purposely make it look like a manual - although I don't see how a manual shifter would go on the dashboard and look like a manual anyway... unless it was a car from the 1930's

    Isn't that the reason for driving a manual besides the amount of fun it is
    Nothing is as cool as rollin' thru da hood with 122 cubic inches

    The elements manual shifter is on the dash I belive. Why not put in a short throw shifter and some recaro seats
