    I would just drop her on some bilstiens and leave the wheels on it. Those wheels look very good on that color. Probably the prettiest blue I've seen. How many were that blue? Agree with socold, nice car.

    Recommend the KW3 which are on 98 MC Blue. I also put in the Umbrella Design front lift which I can recommend but KW now makes their own lift system. A lift will definitely help save the front lift and if you go all 4 wheels, can help with those mountains they call speed bumps. Scraped my Stacys skirts at XPO last year.

    ^^ Veryyyy nice you also have a MCB NSX ;D

    Still doing research on which coilover kit i want to go with. That lift kit by umbrella design is very nifty but I doubt I would invest in it..

    Cannot wait to see these RPF1's w/no fender to tire gap =]]

    You would be the only MCB with ClearCornered JDM tails to ever post. I can see it now. With all the mods due to be completed in Dec, it will look very nice. Now that's what I call a Christmas gift for yourself!

    Re: MexiRicer's 97 MCB

    Some updates!! Finally got around to installing a few goodies in November..

    First, I finally got ahold of a steering wheel hub (TAITEC) from prime member SWIFTVISION, thx buddy.



    Got together with my good friend AdvansCPAP and the process begins... Mexi + Viet labor!! Out with the old in with the new...







    Thanks to AdvansCPAP for wiring this beesh up.. Horn button works like a charm and the SRS light does not come on. We also had to shave down the hub a bit where the horn button ring goes.

    Then look who decided to show up...



    El SuperSonic + AdvansCPAP + MexiRicer

    Re: MexiRicer's 97 MCB

    Also decided to install some HIDs!

    Picked up a McColluch kit in 6000k

    Also ordered an LED interior and exterior kit from jdm_monkey, looks great! Still waiting for him to send me the resistors though to prevent the annoying hyper blink.. Bro if you're reading this, please send them out asap! Thanks

    Once again, got together with AdvansCPAP to combine that Mexi and Viet power...

    Testfitting the ballasts and making sure we wired everything up correctly! As you can see, we tapped into the stock harness and used the ground wire as well as power to the lo beam.





    Our very intricate work station... Had a blast drilling holes through the dust caps X___x





    Everything is wired up and ready to be plugged back in.. Here is the result...





    I'm not happy at all with the 6000k bulbs... 5000k are on their way
