-----------------------------------------------------------



Yo! I first was a lurker on this forum for 6 months. I didn't think I would be able to get a Z until after I graduated college and got a real job. But I made a lot of money from my paid internships in 2012, so I was able to buy my used 2011 CR-Z EX in Dec 2012 a couple weeks before Christmas.







Most of my plans for this car are cosmetic, as I'm not very handy with mechanical stuff.







I have a bunch of stuff sitting in my room, waiting to be done. It's too cold and wintery to do any of it. Though I did buy and install Clazzios, red perf leather center and red stitching, on a 40 deg F day:







My two favorite colors are red and black, so most of my mods will have a red theme

Such as:

-red pinstriping on the grill, like Lady_CRZ did at one point

-red i-VTEC SOHC decals

-red plastidipped OEM wheels

-red plastidipped H badges



Mods that I have had done despite the weather:



-T1R side mirrors



-tinted windows

EDIT: Removed driver/passenger tints due to receiving a ticket. Ticket was dismissed afterwards.



-3M Scotchguard PPF on hood, 2 feet of it

-3M Scotchguard PPF on door handles, and in cups

-clear Lamin-X on foglights

-OEM rubber floor mats



A couple of other plans:

I bought a lightly used JDP carbon fiber spoiler from hrdprkdclos. My dad works at a company that works with adhesives. He got me a roll of the best 3M double sided tape there is, EX v011 or something like that. I'm just waiting on it to warm up before I put on the spoiler.





I do a lot of online surveys, and get money for them. Most of the time I transfer the money to my amazon account or paypal. I am waiting on buying the VTEC decals from a seller on eBay until I have some survey money in my paypal account. I am also waiting until I have enough money in my amazon account to purchase the K&N drop in air filter and the cleaner for it. Total will be $49.97, totally free to me That will probably be one of the few mods for me that has to do with whats under the hood



At some point I may consider having a shop put red pleather on my doors, to cover up that awful gray stuff which is hard to clean.

A post on some minor damage that happened about a month ago:
This is not supposed to happen

My fender liner tore around a point where it was screwed to the bumper. The bumper was bowed out. Took it to my dealer's body shop, and they used a heat gun to reshape the bumper, and then screwed it back in, in a new spot on the fender. They didn't charge me, really nice guys there

Before:


After:


The reshaping wasn't a perfect fix, but its good enough for me. Especially considering it was free!

A post on some minor damage I noticed this morning:

Recent rain cleaned salt and snow off my car. I noticed a blemish on my bumper, near the grill. Looked closer, and there is an incision into the plastic. Like something just cut through, like a knife. I am not sure when or where this happened. Really strange, because that point of the bumper does not stick out the most. Here are some crappy images:





That last one is my beautiful ms paint rendering of what happened. Its basically like if you got a diagonal paper cut on your hand, and there's a chunk of skin flapping around. At some point I will try pushing it back down and using a hair dryer to get it to stay It sucks, but its pretty small, like a centimeter in length. And it's only plastic, at least it wont rust...

I'd highly advise getting that spoiler clear coated.

I have a Seibon MG Style carbon fiber hood. I had to wax a fresh coat of oxidation off every time I cleaned it after a while before a shop in town let me clear coat it this past fall. Oxidation is slowly eating away at the the finish on carbon fiber accessories and will eventually eat away down to the raw material (over a LONG period of time, but still); not to mention oxidation is unsightly. Getting them clear coated is a way to put a protective coating around it and prevent it all together. It is a small part and needs VERY LITTLE prep; it should not be costly to have done and will protect your investment. This will also be MUCH easier to do if you have it done before you have the part put on.

Thanks for the tip, Goose!

And the police don't seem to mind I drive at the speed limit, they never seem to notice me. One was even behind me and switched lanes to zoom past me. If it ever becomes a problem, I'll change or remove the side windows, but leave the hatch (its legal anyway) and the tiny side windows dark. I like the privacy. Problem is the only brand of tint that does 70% is 3M! Super expensive, yo
