    The wagon will have a 4x114.3, the Accord is 4x114 or 4x114.3 (I'm pretty sure it's the same as yours. But things may have changed since 98 when my model Accord came out), the Eclipse is 5x114.

    Sourced an authentic mugen front bumper Sad wish it were closer to Christmas time so I could use my bonus, or tax return haha. I'm finding so much stuff that I want for the car that I may never find again and I don't have any funding! Hahah

    I know how you feel, i am always finding great deals on items and always at the most inopportune time. Found a nice JDM type-R gauge cluster the other day and the guy only wants $100 and I have never seen one for less than $350.

    I know how that feels. Funds are pretty tight right now, so i'm just scouting parts instead of buying them right now.

    Damn dude I could scrape up a hundred bucks for that cluster if I were in the market.. Hell if I ever saw one that cheap I'd buy it just to flip it for a profit.

    yes a great deal indeed and flipping parts is easy when people don't know what to sell stuff for.

    you just have to know what you're doing. And where to get cheap, reliable parts. I know enough about cars i could probably do it, i'd just need a garage and more tools than i have.

    You'd need a ton of tools. Air compressors, lifts, breaker bars, two of every wrench and socket, and the list goes on. But to some of us, well worth the challenge. lol

    The wheels come with falkens on em with pretty good tread so I'm killin two birds with one stone on this one considering the tires on my konigs are literally bald. The seller sent me some more pics last night, I'll upload them tonight.
