As the title says, here's a couple of pics of my SpecV (a.k.a the Gray Turtle):









These were taken sometime in October last year, right after the last detailing I gave to the car before winter. Still on the stock 17s and stock suspension, at least for now. Opinions welcome, and hope you like it :D.

pics of the b13?
Here's a little video of the car in a little meet my crew held in central PR. The driver is my best friend, who is the car's owner:

And some pics:






As I said before, the owner of the car happens to be my best friend, who is located in Puerto Rico, and was my mechanic until I relocated and shipped the Turtle over from PR. The big HKS sticker in the rear windshield is a play we made on the HKS brand's name, making it stand for "Hecho de Kantos Sobrantes" (Spanish for "Built from Leftover Parts"), intentionally misspelling the word "cantos" (which means "parts" or "pieces" in Spanish) with a K so it would fit with the play. That li'l inside joke ended up naming the car, and subsequently, the crew (HKS Crew). I place it in my sig because I put money and effort in the build.....

Gray not found! Your car is silver LOL.

NIce pics!
LOL, yeah, I know it's silver:D. I just used "Gray" in the nickname I gave the car because everyone in my block says the car is gray (color blind, maybe? haha!). I think the only "gray" the car may have is the wheels, but besides that it's Molten Silver Metallic unless proven otherwise, LOL....

BTW, thanks for the compliment!

Hahaha! I just put that there to cover up the two holes left by a previous license plate. A fellow of mine in Puerto Rico who dedicates himself to auto designs (stickers, banners and stuff like that) made that plate for me for cheaps and well....the holes needed to be covered, LOL. I'll probably take the plate off and shave the holes sometime when I have the bumper repainted. Thanks for the comments!

Since I haven't visited or posted in quite a while I'm going to update this thread with some of my car's most recent pics:

These ones I took around late May this year...I was just off a month-and-a-half stint of physical therapy and recovery from a motorcycle accident I had in March this year that kept me bed-ridden most of the time, and what more fitting way to return to walking than going to a dyno day with my bro? I have some pics of other cars that were there that I'll post up if you wish but for now:







The dyno sheet:


And a vid:

Some more at home after detailing the car, my IS300 makes a cameo in a couple of these:







Dirty engine bay shot, SR*S header shown:


And two more on a stop en route to this year's Honda Day in Englishtown, NJ. My sis-in-law's tC Release Series 7.0 makes an appearance:



Enjoy!

A little update! Here's some recent pics with the new set of shoes (Motegi MR116 in 17X7, 40mm offset):





And the reason why the new shoes:


^^^Nice, don't you think? Hehe! My bro had the car for a few days because his car was getting fixed and one night while driving home from his job he ran over something that caused what you can see in the picture :D. Which meant I had an excuse for a long-wanted new set of wheels! Now I need some coilovers to complete the look :D.

Since I haven't been here in a while, I figured I'd post a little update. Couple of months after the pics above I figured it was due time for some suspension & brake mods since I had to fix some stuff in my front end anyway.

Here's a pic of some of the parts:

Megan Racing lowering springs, Eibach Anti-Roll Kit, Goodridge G-Stop brake lines, Kumho ECSTA ASX tires (which I haven't installed yet, waiting on winter to pass). Also replaced the shocks, outer tie rod ends and the rack & pinion assembly. Pics of the process:
