That wing is on another level for real. I think its cool, its super ugly but its also really nostalgic of that time and a cool original piece for sure. Don't change anything!

Yeah, I personally think it's hideous, but it is a cool piece of history regardless. I wouldn't touch it if you want any money back from it. Otherwise, if you change something, you have to change it all.

Thedeadking: the car was most likely lowered at veilside shop for the pictures and was adjusted to stock or close to stock height so it wouldn't destroy the kit when being shipped around everywhere. I really need to lower the back by around .5" and front by a solid 1" and it will look good. Looking at getting wheel spacers as well.

Gt_240: thanks for the nice comment man much appreciated! Like I said a lot of people like and appreciate it and of course there's the people that don't like it haha. Love it or hate it it's all good

From the looks of the pictures, it looks like you'll need a 10mm spacer in the front. The rears appear to be on point. I recommend buying a good set of hub centric spacers, ARP extended wheel studs, and some open-ended lug nuts.

Did you replace the bumper that came with the car when you bought it back to the original?



Here is the original Veilside Cl bumper that came on the car. The same one you have installed and pictured at the gas station.

How did you get your hands on this? I'm guessing the right amount of money and good timing lol...but anyway it is very different from the scene today but it is a piece of history. And love the car for that. I remember looking at pictures of this car when I was like 10 and thinking that thing is awesome haha. I do like the original front bumper better though. Regardless glad to see it hasn't been destroyed

Flatout: I bought the car about 8 months ago ish from Edmonton. I got the car for around $8500 +800 for shipping and the safety passed with flying colours. Since the car wa up during the winter the guy selling it knew there wasn't as much interest then selling it during the summer do the price was lowered at a descent amount. He said once spring hit he was gonna jack up the price. Was a shame that it didn't have the original bumper on it whn I got it so I had to spend around $1500 all Said and done for a new original one, which btw fit perfect with absolutely no moulding required. I also plan on sandblasting the rims and having them all chromed up like they used to be back in the day.

Are you also going to change the exhaust system back to the original Veilside Evolution exhaust?



Since the car is in storage for the winter, you could always buy this Z instead to build...

TheDeadKing: The PO in Japan who bought the car off of Veilside converted the front bumper to the CII front bumper and then converted the dual veilside exhaust to a single exit 5zigen for some reason...... Although I am converting the car back to true dual with dual HKS Super dragger II exhausts /w 5" tips and HUGE resonators. Its gonna make the ass of the car look sweet and sound awesome.

WHERE CAN I GET THAT MODEL!!?!?!?!?

Lol they are pretty damn hard to find if you didn't know and if you find them they don't come cheap at all. I already have a true dual art up going on which is gonna be dual HKS super dragger exhausts.

Thanks man! Yeah thats what I'm basically trying to do, although its hard to keep it where I live... I only get to drive it for like 4 or 5 months then its in storage the rest of the year. If I see a really good deal for like a 2006 EVO il probably cut my losses with the car and someone else can own it. I can't stand driving a 94 integra auto in Canadian winter, it just sucks..
