Agreed on the plasti-dipping... not sure if the paint is rough and we're just not seeing it, but I'd put a shine on that Tib and leave the paint alone. If you decide in a couple years that you'd like a Gen coup and try to sell you car, it going to be a tough sell.
Other than my 2 cents on the paint, it's a great looking car! Take care of it and it will take care of you. Btw, the timing belt is pretty easy.. or a lot of dealers run T-belt specials for decent prices.
Unless it has some catastrophic failure I plan on driving it til it's dead, at 130k it wont be worth much, especially 2 years from now. And I have a lot planned for this car over time so I'll probably end up growing very attached to it. I'll look into timing belt deals, I'd like to tackle it myself for the experience but I'll see what's out there. Thanks for the heads up!
Welcome, fellow rider. You picked a surprisingly good road trip car, as it can fit 3 bikes in the back easily, and more if you start breaking them down.
Good to know someone has fit 3! I wouldn't wanna be the unlucky guy stuck in back with 3 bikes haha. I've fit 2 so far but I need a grill over my JL for comfort before I put any more back there. Cheers
nice, you arent too far away,i'm down in oneonta and also have a beta tib. if you need any advice or tips hit me up. i have a few parts for sale as well. btw, i'm with them, dont plasti dip it black, white maybe but not black. i'd also put the badges back until you can get the holes filled. looks like someone stole them otherwise.
Awesome thanks! PM me concerning what you have for sale, I may be interested. The badges were removed in preparation for plasti-dip. They may or may not go back on after, if not I'll fill the holes.
Well, good luck with your car, and i really think you shouldn't Plastidip it black. It will look very ricey and a Tiburon wouldn't pull that look. just my opinion.
Thanks for checking it out everyone, I appreciate your input. Unfortunately my absolute least favorite color is red so there's no question on it being dipped. I figured you guys would hate hearing that before I even posted, sorry! Syracuse is also flooded with police and this nice shiny red car stands out way too much for my liking, there's always someone looking and I've already gotten a ticket in a month. I don't really want the attention. It will be done in good taste though, I have a good plan for it and I wouldn't want a shotty looking car. It'll be a mix of black and gunmetal gray.
Thanks for checking it out guys, if you're local feel free to PM me to meet up and ride
