Are you going to just completely remove your windows, or make them removable?

And if your really serious look at these windows. http://www.flex-a-lite.com/auto/html...te-molded.html
thats a lot of cash to put out, but if you are going to CF every thing i guess its worth it :)

The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.

ok so stock supension plsu taking about 115lbs out of the rear is horrible haha.

i love it, but my car sits even higher, and i was hauling arse trying to get to a civic si and i was going around a curve and i started to hear my tires squeeling anf the rear end get looooose.

i mean i have brand new tires on there.
and i may need to adjust my toe a little bit but stock supension with that stuff out of it will make the car sit higher and handle like poop

so im debating should i put the seats back in and wait to get a coilover kit.
or should i just leave them out and wait till i get coilovers.
to drop the hoe
