Hey everyone this is my crx, ive had her for the last year i drove 2 hours away to pick her up, when i did the ball joints were shot, suspension shot it didnt pass inspection until i put a passenger side control arm in. and the Black and purple rims that came on the car were bent, the radio didnt work and the taillights were cracked she was in pretty rough shape :)

I'd personally use Photobucket myself. www.photobucket.com

Also, if you're new to posting images in forums (specifically php) you have to wrap images in appropriate tags. [img]and[/img] (before and at the end, respectively). Hope this helps.

looks like you figured out the photo stuff , in this example you doubled your open and close tags.

Nice ReX the white wheels def look better than the black ones .. I'm not a big fan or white or black wheels, but black seems to be hard to balance with all the other black on the rex.

Also, I like the front bumper painted "on the front" and i've been trying to figure out a way to make it transition to the sides .. maybe some sort of "tribal tatoo" pattern , we'll paint the black on the back of ours , just trying to figure out how "not" to paint the front .. lol
I'd like to see the black on the sides go as far forward as possible without wrapping around to the front profile of the bumper cover.
Maybe you can take some tape and black cardboard and pin stripe or dry erase markers or photoshop and play with that idea .. you or anyone else who's had the same thoughts ..
it's almost a "catch 22" how do you paint the front without painting the sides ?
I haven't seen one CRX photo with a transition like i'm describing .. anyone ?

PS: our ReX was pretty much a "hot mess" when we got it too .. 90% cosmetic ..
thankfully the motor has not given us any problems .. :) : knock on wood :

I like the blades over the white wheels. White shows more dirt and grime.

I got my EK arm rest from ebay , sent a "best offer" and picked it up for $35 plus shipping :) from eh .. i think minifastturbocar ..

RE: tribal transition on lower blacks
Yeah, i don't mean the whole car.
Are you gonna paint "all" the lowers back to OEM ?
even the front bumper cover ?
I was saying that OEM paint on the rear cover looks awesome , and the sides .. but
the front looks better painted .. BUT
how to TRANSITION .. maybe one "tiny" transition of some sort. fade or tribal or shark teeth lol

I'm trying to figure this out for our ReX .. so i'm just voicing my view / perdicament
Not trying to suggest a paint scheme for ya .. ;) I would like your opinion on my idea's :-)b :-)b
