This is my EF9

Here's a list so far of everything that has been done:
Short Ram Intake
Megan Racing Headers w/ full exhaust, unknown muffler
Skunk2 springs on KYB GR2 struts
Front Upper Strut Bar
Rear Upper and Lower Strut Bar
C-Pillar Bar
PasswordJDM Shift Boot
35w 8000K HIDs
I have also gutted the rear of the car

I have a lot planned for this car, and am always open to criticism and suggestions.

Awesome, these older Hondas are fun to mess with. I'm actually in search for one right now. Mainly a CRX or a 4th gen Accord again.

looks much better under the hood than inside lol

Suggestion? How about a quick cleaning?

And then a new steering wheel and seats... and fix the front fender, and...

Why would you gut the rear of the car? I did see a pretty nice EF with a dry sump fuel cell in the back, but it was a track only job and not road legal anymore.

I learned to drive in an EF, love them.

the cleaning is on its way lol, the seats are whats bothering me the most. i have only had the car for about 6 months, and whoever had it before me murdered the interior. it's slowly coming together. the whole body is going to be repaired soon, needs new fenders on both sides and a new hood and some rust removed. and new paint. i am still up in the air with the paint scheme. i want to stick with black and red. i want to make the engine bay gloss red, haven't figured out what shade, and the body i want to be black, whether flat/matte/satin flat or gloss. gutted the back because everything was beyond repair mainly, the seats were horrible and all the plastic was broken and half ripped out any way. i got the car for 1000, and have done just a little bit of work to it.
