    Looks great! I'm looking at getting the same side skirts and rear diffuser. Did you paint, or buy a new from grille? I know ebay has a lot of fairly cheap black options right now.

      Yeah I've got a few peices on my car with the gloss carbon fiber look, that look good. But those side skirts have the really cheap look to them. Yeah I plastidipped my grille too, first time I ever plastidipped anything. Looking to redo soon with the higher end gloss the Dipyourcar.com now offers.

      I got some pearl blue that matches mine from dipyourcar. It's what I did my front emblem with. It's a perfect match.

      Awesome! Yeah DYC has some awesome products, and really cost effective for the DIY guy. If you're willing to take the time and learn to do it right it is so much better, and cheaper than giving thousands to a shop to paint/dip/wrap your car. Again your civic looks great, really clean and I hadn't noticed the blue emblem until you mentioned it...it does look like an exact match, well done!

    Love the stance with side skirts and lip! I have had those same ikon side skirts in my ebay cart for a year now but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    Curious what is your wheel / tire sizing is? Are you running any lowering springs/coilovers?

      Thanks! I liked the side skirts but hated the fake carbon fiber texture. Lots of sanding and painting. PITA! I saw this setup on this forum and loved the stance so I just replicated it. Eibach Sportline Springs, SPC rear cambers, whiteline front links, 18x8 rims with 35 offset, 235/40/18 tires. It is a wicked combo. The ride is very comparable to OEM.

    Hi, I am wondering how did you install them (lip, side skirt, rear side skirt). Did you use 3m tape, or drill a hole then crew them in?
    THanks!!

      I first tried tape. Wasn't confident in it to be honest. I decided to use screws. 1.25" self drilling screws. No need to predrill. They zip right in.

      I bought the same side skirt as you, did you use the metal pieces included? if yes, how did you attach it? Pls thanks!!

      I did not use the metal pieces. It seemed to be a unnecessary step. I just used 1 inch self drilling screws straight up into side skirt body. Same with all my lip and trim pieces.

    Do you have a link to that side skirt/lip? Been trying to look for one that would fit mine also. Anyways, sweet ride.
