Cryo's Build Thread

Alright, its time for me to start my CRZ customization.

I started out fully intending to keep it stock...and then I found this forum. I got a few ideas, and basically started by just ad-libbing the build. It wasn't too long before full fledged forum-fueled moditis kicked in, and I was researching and buying stuff that I had never even considered before. My goal is to have a comfortably functional 40-mpg sporty daily driver, but with enough modifications to be track-capable at a moments notice.

The Car
2012 Honda CR-Z Base Model
CVT Transmission

Current Modifications:

Interior
-Glowshift Gauge Pods (Boost, Air Temps, Trans Temp)
-Interior LED's (Blue)
-BaysonR Illuminated Door Sills
-Black carbon fiber vinyl wrap center console w/ blaze blue metallic plastidip highlights
-Black Carbon Fiber Vinylwrap Accents
-Tinted Windows
-Clazzio Seat Covers (Black with blue insert, blue stitching, and blue embroidered headrest)
-Blue Seatbelt Pads
-Stinger Roadkill sound deadener on doors, roof, hatch, and cargo area body panels.
-Volara sound proofing foam on roof, and driver/passenger doors.

Exterior
-Matte Black & Copper Alloy Pearl Plastidipped body
-6000k HID Lowbeams
-OEM Foglights w/ 3000k bulbs
-LED Licence plate lights
-iJDMtoy Projector Reverse Light LEDs
-Custom illuminated grill & engine bay (Blue LEDs)
-Mugen Replica Wing
-CRZ Windshield Logo Decal
-JDM replica Grill Cover

Under the Hood
-AEM Cold Air Intake, wrapped with heat reflecting tape
-BLF Cat Back
-P2R Downpipe / 2nd cat delete
-Sprintex Supercharger
-Innovative Engine Mounts (60A)

Wheels & Suspension
-Progress 19mm Rear Sway Bar
-Megan Racing Street Series Coilovers (~1.5" lowered from stock)
-Spoon 25mm Front Sway Bar
-Stock 16" Rims
-Dunlop Sport 7000s

Evolution of a Predator

The day it came home:

Hey man, no shame in taking it slow. A lot of people start out intending to go slow and then just go crazy. But good start so far!!

Yeah, slow is better, otherwise you'll waste your money by buying three different exhaust setups and two different lips. Take your time and save your money for what you really want.

Latest project update:

Santa got me Plastidip for Christmas. And a Mugen replica wing. And window tinting.

(Special thanks to SpaceCoast Honda for the wing installation and tinting service!)

Actually, I almost dipped the rims black. But then I remembered that my work has me driving through some very dusty/muddy/gravelly places, so they wouldn't stay black (or blue) and pristine for long. I'm too lazy to keep redipping them every weekend
