Old member, new car!

Hey everybody. I'm moving next month and my commute is going from 12 miles to 35 miles (but we're saving $100,000 on a house getting away from the big city) so I bought this little '92 VX. Looking forward to doing some mods and getting back into ecomodding!



It's got 182,000 miles and is all original, all stock. I got it from the second owner that bought it from his friend's mom in January. New tires and new 5 wire 02 sensor! The paint is faded but I might shine it up or do a quick rattle can job (desert tan?). I don't really like the idea of driving around in a red Honda cop attractor. I bought it with a full tank of gas too so it will be a while before I can get fuel economy data.

My first mod is going to be an MPGuino, is anybody 3D printing enclosures? Love the shift knobs Daox, I might have to get one.

Congrats on the new car. The VX will be nice.

Thanks for the shift knob compliments. I'd be happy to make you one along with an MPGuino enclosure. You'll just have to work with me on the enclosure dimensions. PM me and we can work it out. Its been on my list of things I'd like to make.
