Ahh. I gotcha. Not really on here as much because of work. This is what I am worried about when I plan on getting a new set. Hard to find a nice set 5x115.

yeah but the GA we can run spacers since our fenders stick out more than the alero, so really just need to find the right size and offset wheel and gets spacers that go from 5x115 to what ever the new bolt pattern is

Starting the suspension project.




The pile of parts has grown.
-KYB AGX struts
-new strut mounts and spring seats
-new spring isolators and strut boots
-new ball joints
-new outer tie rod ends
-grand prix rear lateral links and bolts

And I'm repainting the sway bars and LCA's and greasing all the bushings.

Round two was yesterday when I tried for 4 hours to take apart one of the OEM headlights. Nothing I did worked. They were damn close to melting and no where close to coming apart. So I gave up.

These are the original ones I did. I've taken them apart. Trimmed them a bit to fit the projector a bit better. I've done some sanding and some dremel work. There is still some parts that needs to be addressed, but they look better. Unfortunately, I need to get some new lenses. So I'm debating on how I want to go about this. I'll probably buy some non desirable headlights like the stock dual headlights, and use the lenses off of them. Probably my cheapest option. It'll set me back about 2 weeks, but I'd rather do it that way.

ah ok gotcha.. thought i missed a post somewhere..

i looked at the junkyard when i went last week for headlights to screw around with and there wasn't anything..all these outback seem to be punched in, in the front so the headlights are either broken or already gone.. or the one that was left the lens was pretty beat.

1 - Sam-- do those clip and glue together? Or you suppose just the glue being so new and fresh is the problem? They look , uh.... Es mui bueno! (God I hope that's right )

2 - Chris, did you change rims??? I thought you had ones that kinda had a soccer ball looking pattern inside them

AAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNND 3... Of course, it's sleepy..

I don't even understand how that tire holds air, why you'd try it, or why you haven't done it to your DD alero

I have to use a silicone sealant to keep them together. The silicone from the factory on the 13+ was upgraded to a heavy duty sealant because of condensation issues. So they are a nightmare to get apart. So.....I'm back to aftermarket lights

I sold my Accord Sport wheels back in late March to get my current set. They're the 18"s from the 2014-2015 Civic Si models. More and more people were getting those Accord Sport wheels, but the 18" Si wheels were growing on me, but holy crap...it was a pain finding this set.

I'm still the only 7th gen coupe with these wheels. :3
