It was time for an oil change yesterday so I figured it was a good time to do some other things as well.

Couple of updates. Decided it was time to remove the Acura center caps. I replaced all four center caps. I only took one photo.

Small engine add ons...

I hate the Spoon oil cap. It looks way to cheap IMO. So went with my favorite...

Some updates....

CT Icebox installed

Tinted the fog lights yellow. Not completely satisfied with the tint at first. It seemed to have a lot of bubbles in it. I turned the fog lights on for about 20 mins and the bubbles disappeared. Looks pretty good now.

Better photos to follow once the weather cooperates. These were taken with my phone.

Pic after I got my lug nuts...

Apologies for the bad angle of the photo. Lowered and prior to wheels mounted and alignment. Better pics to come just waiting for better weather.

Got a lot of stressful things going on in my life at the moment. Sorry for not posting up tons of updates. Here is another recent picture just like the one above. I've still got some adjusting to do on the coilovers after I get the rear camber kit installed (thanks Ohio for the seized up bolts).
