This is how she looked with the previous owner:


This is how she looked when I took her home:



When we got her we spared no time but to start cleaning her up, I admit that I was blinded by love when we inspected the car, I straight up did not notice the huge chunks of dirt slabbed into the jams and trunk dam. There was a lot of things that I did not notice either such as dents and paint chips, but who cares, I'm a new proud owner of a 2.5RS.

The first thing I did was changing the rims. I went out and bought my all time favorite rims in the best color possible, VOLK TE37 in Royal Bronze.





Little did I know that those exact rims had previously been on this same car during the first purchase from the dealership in 2000. These rims are as old as the car!! "reunited and it feels so right." right? lolol.

After that I've scored on a set of stock side skirts from RS25 member: Kaimino (who rolled his car) and installed them the same day.





The car looked 10x better with the installation of the original stock side skirts. I rode around with this look for a long while actually, I've always liked stock look and how subtle it is.

Then a year into owning this car my headgasket blew, as you look closer you'll notice the coolant on the front bumper. So I opted for a motor rebuild with machined heads and everything which was performed by my brother.

One summer my bro found parts for me to buy and I went to check it out. At this time I was thinking, screw a swap, I already have a rebuilt motor, so its time to go from ZERO to HERO with the gifts from the JDM gods. Once I've received the parts, I sent it away to get body work and paint work done on them.

Overnight JDM parts shipping. Thanks AVE!


Authentic rear JDM spoiler.


I asked my self, why stop now? So, I transformed my front end with this, Mature WRC front bumper and a HERO was born.

.
I didn't stop there, I was young and persistant and wanted to spend more money. lol.
Went out and bought rare recaro seats!

Ahh haha, I got the car like that and didn't bother changing up with the lights. Didn't care as much. As for a future a route I plan on getting amber signal lights and keeping the side lights clear.

Oh why thank you!
