Me? No, I've always had the airbox. Only removed the 2 resonators on the intake hose. It was actually not the lid clip that's broken, it's the end of the support rod that goes into the strut tower that broke in half.
Sorry I'm an idiot it looked like the picture crawls posted was from you on my phone, I thought it might have been an older picture of your car :oops:

All good. I do it all the time. I've had those resonators off the car pretty much since I bought it. If they are on it it makes the car sound like it wants to explode when your rev it past 4.5k. They are there to make the sound quieter for OEM saleability. Although I did take out the really big resonator but didn't like the way it sounded so put it back.

I decided to paint the rusting wiper blade mounts as it seems buying Repco replacements only last a year before they start to rust. OEM was rusting, just worn in all the pivot points so the blades flopped around and didn't sit true.

Not so nice.

Still average during the start of prep work.

Painted with black zinc paint. I did the Demio brackets too.

Good quality properly sized JDM wheels tend to do that. Wheels are a make it or break it thing for cars.
