im quite happy with the way my stance is. people tend to take the stance stuff way too far and go overboard with it. they are already pretty aggressive.

TBH, and don't take this the wrong way, I was kind of scared to see how the NSX would turn out after you stanced the CL. I was really hoping you wouldnt take it too far, and you didnt.

the NSX is a whole different platform. its a true sports car so i dont want to stance too much. id like to retain some of what it was built to do. takes away from the sportiness. the CL a fwd coupe. i didnt mind pushing the limits a bit.

How does it ride? It seems so low, I was curious if it's like a go-kart?

Looks amazing though. Congrats on a beautiful example of a modern classic.

it rides great. i recently took a 4 hour trip and it felt great. some of the most comfortable seats ive sat in a car. i love it low. i get people asking me how do i it drive it so low all the time. its honestly a visual thing. i get over speed bumps a lot easier than it looks and people think.

its funny you say that because im planning on doing that with my CL. its back to stock now but i want to get pics of it when it was modded and post them in my garage. ill eventually do that with the nsx. it has a lot more stages to go through.

decided to change it up a bit. i like how on ferrari's and lambos you can see the engine through the glass in the rear so i took off my targa top cover. i can store the top in my trunk if i want to take it off.

If you want to show it, clean it up, with new lines, or sleeves, maybe some paint.



Maybe a mini wire tuck

no wire tuck. i want to keep it as close to oem as possible. i plan on getting na2 wrinkle red valve covers, stmpo rear strut tower bar, replacing the honda manifold plate with an acura one and a few other tasteful changes.

You can get a stainless steel sleeve kit from Amazon about 30 shipped, cost 50-60 at pep boys/AutoZone/advanced


You can get some expandable pet which holds temps of 200-250 i think for a few things 10-30 depending on size.



First thing i would is paint the reservoirs in black, or change them for some aluminum ones

You should turn your engine cover into an NSX-R style cover:

Looks cleaner IMO.
