Nice build, welcome back!
Hey Ami! Glad to see you're still around!Holy hell, Krayzie! That's an unfortunate turn of events but it's good to see that you're still doing the Integra thing.
We bought the car with the original swap done. It had everything we wanted so we had to have it, unfortunately for us, some of the things were half assed so now its our turn to make them right.nice read, I've been watching LHT's youtube videos and thought the car looked familiar when I saw your pics. Interesting to see its a rhd k swap with ac and ps. Not many people keep all those accessories.
Saw it looks like you went to advance performance for your alignment?
I tend to switch around for alignments because I know a few people in the area that do them and can trust, but I have taken my car to advanced performance multiple times with no issues and would go there again.We bought the car with the original swap done.

As for the alignment, my brother is very picky about where he goes. He needed new tires so he asked John where to go, and the recommendation was Kaufman tire because one of his clients works there. He went there and his tires were mounted by another integra owner so that was cool, and he planned on getting an alignment with them too but they didn't work on lowered cars, so we would have to go to the clearwater or tampa location which had different people. Well I'm not sure what he had done at kaufman since then but they installed the rim lugnut cover wrong!
The center piece screws on and they completely stripped the thread, they somehow put it on where it was almost completely screwed on, but still rattling. We tried everything possible to get it off but couldn't so we decided to take it back to kaufman for them to do it. The way it was, it would have been impossible for us to take off the wheel, which would have been very bad in case of a flat tire on the side of the road.
So I took it to them and I was there for literally 2 hours while 6 guys were trying to take this thing off. Needless to say they scratched the rim to hell, and the center piece was now useless, as well as the thread on the rim that would take a new center piece... Such a ****ty experience! Oh and they said they wont charge me for this service! WTF as if I would pay them for the damage they did trying to fix an issue they caused. I was super pissed and that was the last time we went there.
So when it was time to get the alignment done he did a lot of research and ended up taking it to advance performance. Apparently the work on a lot of low cars, and they also specialize in suspension setups, so we may go back to them for some suspension stuff in the future...
I wish I could find the pic of 6 guys standing around the car trying to figure out how to get the center piece off...
