Default My 04 RL intro pictures

Greetings y'all! I can't seem to locate my origional picture when I 1st got it, but here's some others (in the time line of things I've done).

I copped it from a lady who let it sit for a few years. She was the orig. owner and when I took it off her hands, it had a layer of bird shit, leaves, and debris all over it from sitting for 2 years. A lil bit of loving and some service work and she was ready to roll.

1st mod - Bike rack (not cuz I'm a poseur... I'm an avid ride-aholic)


I hated the ride height so I copped a suspension and let it sit on my garage till I got some decent daily rollers. Once the wheels were found, I installed em and dropt it and added yet another coat of wax








With the rack and my bikes on it



That was the last mod on the car for a smidge. I loved the color sooo much and wanted to spread it everywhere. So I took an old mountain bike I had and rebuilt it into a single speed and said f*ck it - let's paint it to match.




Close up of the pearl






Now.... wheels! I tried all sorts of brands and sizes till I found the right match.
The 1st were Varrstoens:





I didn't dig the mexipoke shit so I ditched em... FAST!
Onto something else. Copped a set of Volks with a nice offset, but the pattern was kinda iffy for my taste



Now... I have an idea what size I need, and what look I want so it's time to commit to a real brand. Work Euroline SL 19 x 8.5 +35.




The rack didn't look right, but I had to cart my steeds around. So I bought a van, and ditched the rack on the RL. Now this is how it sits:




That's about it for now. I would like a few more things (in this order)
1. The exact lip kit that aftermath has
2. window visors
3. rear window visor
4. some kind of deck lid spoiler

Feel free to add comments, bad or good. I don't mind.

Later, my new forum family!

Thanks alot, guys. I'm glad I'm accepted with open arms into an acura family/forum. This is my first acura. I modded plenty of Hondas, but I wanted to step outta the "not so luxury" class.
As for th guts of this semen white luxury cruiser... I plan on keeping her bone stock. The inside is still showroom fresh with navigation and wood so I see no point in messig with perfection.
