Recently, I took Prudence autocrossing! It was the first time for both of us, so I didn't have many expectations (However, I didn't want to be last). I ended up in 5th out of the 9 cars in my class! It was a NASA event run through the MVSCC (Miami Valley Sports Car Club).

Also, if any of you are interested, here is my previous car. It's a 2000 Acura Integra 4 door.
That's the coolest thing ever.

I used some corrugated plastic board that I had in the garage and cut it out. I used a piece that I had from a sign, but they sell it at Home Depot in sheets

Around election time is a good place to get the plastic for free. After is better as elections are over and they wouldn't care that you are "stealing".

Well, since it was 65* here in Cincy last weekend, I was able to finish my TRD spoiler paint job and install! it came out really well. Paint matched perfectly.

Pics removed because Photobucket stopped hosting.
