I bought Chorizo 27 Oct 2013 and as of 13 Dec 2016, I have spent $1,627.06 in repairs over thirty-four months, which works out to $43.32 average per month.
I have not done much lately and most of my efforts have been cleaning up my Accord, which I hardly drive!
Build Thread:
Current Mods: Power steering delete
One-piece grill block and air dam, now with a vent
Pizza separators (not pans), but the Vekke caps and zip ties kept breaking

Planned Mods: Unfortunately, between being largely unemployed and the need to make repairs on this and my Forester, I have not made many ecomods thus far. I want to improve my wheel covers, improve my grill block\air dam, and make skirts. I bought a bike carrier and want to try a boat tail, because members have discussed it, but as far as I know, nobody has done it.
