The Krazy Wagon build

Well i figured id just make one thread for my dub instead of flooding the forums for each project i do. So From now on ill post my project and upgrades in here.

Plans
full intake/exhaust
chip
suspension
bodykit
new head/tails

i don't want it to be a rocket it just fun to drive. i live for corner G's over straight line speed. i owned a 2008 honda fit 5pd and loved how it cornered mournfully i wrote it off hitting a guard rail last year doing 120km/h. I'm starting school to be an automotive service tech this Sept and always wanted to learn to fix/build cars. and well this little 2.0 8v seems quite simple and easy to work on so i think i made a good choice one what has been dubed by friends as "TheKrazyWagon"

WORK COMPLETED SINCE I TOOK OWNERSHIP

replaced rear brake cals(both sides)
replaced timer belt/water pump(cant remember brand)
replaced antifreeze return line(mcgyvered)
replaced battery(interstate)
replaced alternator(bosch/oem)
replaced windshield
replaced front strut/springs(oem)
replaced Exhaust head/downpipe(OBX)

sanded down and primed up a few rust spots

^^^ Yo fukn I'm not kidding. I did something like this last summer on my console. Since the paint was latex based, it would stick to anything when it was hot in the car, including my elbows and shit.
