Front end is complete and looking mean as heck. Still need to remove the pin stripe. Everything should be done this week, body shop still needs to fix the small dent in driver door and then it will be towed over to the local Honda dealer for the rest. Getting excited :D Oh and it also needs a good bath LOL...

Stopped over at the body shop on this beautiful sunny morning to take a quick peek at my car. Still waiting on the rear tow hook cover and for my body guy to paint the rear garnish. It still has to go over to Honda next week as well, should be done by Friday I am hoping if all goes well. A lot of places are closed here due to covid-19...

It's official car is complete! I have it home and started to detail the inside, it was wrote off with body shop dirt lol.
I plan on doing paint correction and applying Carpro 3.0UK ceramic coat and top it off with Carpro Gliss next week. Hopefully have my 57 cr's on next month as well :)

Congrats man! Been following your build for a while now! Glad to see that even with COVID-19 people are still able to enjoy the little things! Can't wait to see it all washed and waxed! How does it drive?
