VEHICLE STORY

At the time of me deciding to build this car it was a kind of spur of the moment thing that I'm sure many car guys can relate to, I was originally saving my pennies working at a gas station to buy something completely different (a Lexus GS300) when I stumbled on the latest video from ThatDudeInBlue at the time. And the car he was reviewing was RHDKev's DC2 Integra and from the second I watched that review all I wanted was my own K Swapped Integra. Being impulsive and having EXACTLY $1200 in my bank account I spent all my free time looking for the perfect start to my project. My searching paid off when I found my very good condition 2000 Integra LS. It was a one owner car, auto which was fine as it was instantly going to be swapped and no quarter panel rust! Which is the best part about this car being a Canadian Honda where they salt the roads relentlessly. My original plan for this car was to do a very budget swap so I could have a reliable, fun and fast car that I wouldn't care too much about. But that all went out the window as soon as I really started getting into it. After seeing so many other gorgeous K Swapped cars, premium parts and how the Honda community really is opposed to sterotypes I couldn't help but fall down the rabbit hole and try my best to build a car worthy of a spot in Superstreet or Import Tuner magazine while still being able to hold its own on the track. In a way this turned from being a cool budget build to a full rescue/restoration. So far there isn't a single bolt I haven't touched making this car the best it can be all the while fighting what Canadian rust I come across. Stay along for the ride and let's hope this build doesn't take me 2 more years!
