Make it all, put an outrageously HUGE wing on it and with an ugly unnessasary bodykit, make it convertable, hot pink, no wait, hot pink fading into lime green from front to back, then put a huge 427 LT1 Lingenfelter Corvette engine in it, make it rear whee drive, and slam it to the ground on 32's. do this for the ultimate car, oh and mkae sure it has a 6 inch exhaust that spits flames...............that would have to be the AWSOMEEST freakin car ever.

Do what you want and people will like your car much better and have more respect from you, everyone likes original.

So it seems that its be a prick day on here.

You would think they hate newbies on here huh?
Don't let some of these guys egos get in your way.

They are right though :a car, even a model should be an expression of your own creativity and ideas.

I always hit the car mags when I am looking for inspiration, get a tuner mag and check it out, pull some pics you like and see what you can do with em, even combine a few styles.

If it were mine I would go all out Euro Tuner, ultra low, deep metallic midnight blue or Ferrari Red, body kit

Post your in progress pics!

I hope ur not referring to me because it was just a joke and expressed true seriouness (The Syndicate, is that a word?) at the bottom of my post;

if you actually have a '90 CRX, make it just like your car.

or, make it how you'd like your car to be...

nice paint job man, did you polish it yet or is that straight from the can?
Cool color, keep them pics coming.
Speaking of pics what are you taking them with 35mm, a point and shoot or a digital, they could be slightly more in focus, if its 35mm set the f stop to 20 , if its adigital set it to macro, if its a point and shoot you can't do much about it

For me it's a good idea (only for a model car). In the same time, you can put a cr-x front on a civic :icon16:.

Sorry if I came off all wrong, but I did say do what you like.. if you like it, good for you, do it and show us some pics :tongue: anyhow, the question was... I WAZ THINKING ABOUT PUTTING A CIVIC FRONT END ON MY CRX , DO U GUYS THINK THATS A GOOD IDEA? and I gave my answer.. have fun!!

07-27-2003, 03:56 PM
ok well just to let u guys know the front end waz for my model cr-x

dag65
07-28-2003, 10:42 AM
THats a pretty cool idea, I have seen a few VW Golfs around here with Jetta front ends.
I think what IWANNADRIFT was saying is that the civic front end seems out of proportion to the CRX, it makes it kinda front heavy. Looks like a Ricer Z-3.
Is there another front end that you could use that would be more proportional to the CRX?
Great ideas man, brainstorming like that is what makes some models really stand apart form the rest:bigthumb:

I like that, and it would give me a chance to do an SAS article for SA.
THe Skyline is that a Tamiya Kit? Sorry if that seems like a dumb question but I have been doing all American stuff up until now.

Your car is clean but if you want you can put a air intake on the hood, little sideskirts & a new front spoiler. Keep the same color but tint the rear windows in black & the open roof in body color.
