I bought this car about 2 months ago. It has had a long history with it's previous owner. They had hit somthing with the car and it required a new front clip and doors. I found a donor car for $100 and went to town. I purchased the excess body parts from friends and made them fit the car with the exception of the wing which was sourced from the junkyard.
The car was painted the factory 'blueberry' on bottom and black on top with violet pearl in the clearcoat. Looks black until the sun hits it and it 'glows' purple (pic of paint on wing).
I have installed a 2.5" 409 stainless exhaust on her with a flowmaster stainless 40 series muffer. I wanted somthing with backpressure. The CAI was made from some extra tubing from a few other cold air kits I had laying around. I currently have a NOS dry nitrous kit with 50 hp jets installed. Just as a measure of safety I installed a master 190lph fuel pump just so things do go out lean.
If you want to see more pictures or assembly shots, you can check those pics out at WWW.Geocities.com/festivagt . There is also my customized Festiva there(RIP) and my 84' Mercury Capri. There is also a LARGE amount of swap pages and mod pages there as well.
I am looking to have the body kit reproduced for the Aspire to make it available for sale, if you are interested , please let me know.
UPDATE 7/13/06 : I picked up some 17x7" 4x100mm BSA wheels with 205/40/r17 rubber on them. They were fitted for a 94' civic EX(same fitment as the aspire check your catalogs). Minimal rubbing on the inner fenderwells - just in the front. There isn't any more room at all to fit anything taller or wider on the aspire. It has that nice firm tight ride. They fill out the wheelwells perfectly, no need to lower the car - for the look. I think they look pretty good on there.
Black basecoat w/violet pearl
17" wheels installed.
