Look, before I delete anymore of this diatribe, keep in mind that other people think the have the right to do and say anything they want. My opinion is that the more people are alike the more the thrash each other. You and Danny could be GREAT friends if life lets it happen. My suggestion still stands if you want to get along anywhere. No need to retaliate or carry on. Be above it all. Those who understand this know better. I'm not your parent or older brother, just saying it's "everyone's job to stop the hate" and "it takes at least two to argue." Hakuna matata! :idea:

Looks good, just IMO, would have gotten some black seats and harness (the red destroy's the interior's look), and would remove the lift from the back end of the hood (does give it a unique look, but just not my thing). Can't really find anything wrong with the entire look though (it's not "ricer" per se) and just from the pics can see you've put lots of time into the car getting it to look how you want it to.

"professional opinion" what the fuck is that?.. im sorry.. i must have missed the drama. but the dudes car is clean.. alot cleaner than most on this site.. i dont see the need to post whatever dumbshit was said.. or talk down to him like you just did.. you have somewhat of a name on the internet selling used parts to a small group.. kool.. no where does that make you a "professional".. and again that word is a very lose term..

i dont have beef with you. hell im rocking your decals.but if this is how you carry yourself on someone else thread i will glady remove them. i really dont care.i dont know you or have ever heard of anyone that has heard of you, and probably will never buy from you.. not bc your not a nice guy or anything. but the more you post, i see the more bullying and you carry yourself like your better than most b.c you sell used parts. you get mostly out of junkyards.. but you are starting to sound super cocky.. i knew a guy one time that sounded just like you at one point.. sold alot of parts like you.. and well lets say hes hated by alot..

if i get banned or warning off this. then so be it. iv been a member of this forum for 10 years. im calling this how i see it. my life will go on. i already removed myself from the integra fb page bc of one cocky person.

Buddy like the car... but your harness mount locations concern me... I wouldn't want to see you get in an accident wearing those the way they are mounted... Thats the definition of spinal compression. :shock: Not trying to hate, just trying to keep you safe!

Again nice car. Both wheels fit the look very well.

I'm going to have to agree with Danny on this one. For me, it's not so much the seats themselves being modern and "trendy", as it is that they are red, and they stick out like a sore thumb and don't match anything else on your car. Perhaps black srd's would have been more suited to the car.

Not really sure how takata belts would help... You should look into getting/making a harness bar for those restraints you have.

I have to chime in about the harness. As stated above, the shoulder belt mounting will compress your spine in an accident. The shoulder belts should go straight back or 10 degrees down. The manufacturer should have documentation on the mounting.

Even if you had a harness bar, the setup would not be good for street use because a racing harness has to be tight. Tight means you would not be able to reach your radio. When you have a tight harness, you need a roll bar because if you flip, you will be crushed.

Not sure of your plans, bit no track will let you run like that.

I would go back to the stock belts.

Also worth noting the harnesses are meant for high speed impacts, they are very solid and will not move. They actually do more damage to you at regular public road speeds. Your stock belts are designed to rip and stretch in the event of an accident to cushion you a bit. I know here in California it is illegal to daily drive with a harness as they are not DOT approved for street use. I do however like the look of a harness and I personally like how they hold better. I have looked into doing this a lot and have decided its not worth it unless I track the car, which I do not.

Well like i said before ... RED is my favorite color ... and i wear RED everyday so it matches with ME lol and i like to stick out and stand out ... and that is the reason why i didnt get black because i want to stand out and plus they are Original Recaros 8-) no fake sh** and i love them they feel WAY better than stock ..they feel sporty

I've always kind of liked the white/red color combos. Good looking car. I got a picture of my shoulder belts, it's more of a reference of the angle you are looking for on the shoulder belts so they won't hurt you in an accident. Without the bar i'm not sure of a mounting point though.

Putting hood risers on under with the idea of it increasing cooling by "venting" hot air from the engine bay, is wrong. it disrupts the airflow, much like driving a truck with the tailgate down. It does more harm than good. Although I doubt it will cause any catastrophic cooling issues. The biggest benefit to spacing the hood is decreasing the wind resistance from the windshield as the hood being lifted, helps the air pass over it. As it stands, a windshield is like a brick wall for the air.

This?

LAUSANNE GREEN PEARL RHD DA



Putting hood risers on under with the idea of it increasing cooling by "venting" hot air from the engine bay, is wrong. it disrupts the airflow, much like driving a truck with the tailgate down. It does more harm than good. Although I doubt it will cause any catastrophic cooling issues. The biggest benefit to spacing the hood is decreasing the wind resistance from the windshield as the hood being lifted, helps the air pass over it. As it stands, a windshield is like a brick wall for the air.

I just do it for the looks mainly just like this one viewtopic.php?f=52&t=558

That is an extreme over exaggeration. The under carriage of your car is the brick wall, especially the rear bumper. For the technology of its time the g1 Integra still had a pretty decent efficient drag. (At least with the headlights in the closed position)
