Hey Guys!

My name is Justin and i bought my Hatch back in Feb of this year and have been doing some minor things with the car and am finally getting around to some bigger mods. I figured I might as well start this thread now to show you guys kind of what I have done so far and what's coming up soon.
The car right now - 10/23/17

This is the car when I first got it in Feb:

The first thing I did with the car was get the windows tinted and the roof / top of the hatch wrapped black. I took my car in to Monumental Workx to get all of that done and they did a great job with it. I was super satisfied with the results and would definitely recommend them. Here's a pair of before and after pics:

The next thing I did was add the Red Badges and pinstripe taped the front and back lip as well as throw on some window visors. Oh! and I also swapped out the side markers from orange to clear, I'm contemplating tinting them out with some left over tint I have laying around.. but I'm not sure if I'm going to follow through with that idea yet or not.

I saw some people on this forum add some red lining to their interior and thought it looked pretty nice so I went ahead and gave it a go. I have been thinking about pulling off some of the interior pieces and vinyl wrapping them red but its just an idea for now.

Planned:

I ordered some wheels from Japan that I have been wanting for years (previously wanted to get them for my RSX, but here I am getting them for my hatch!). I got a set of Work CR-Kiwami's through Pann Auto here in San Diego, and they just came in so I will be getting them installed this monday (8/23)! I'll definitely post pics after I get them installed.

The wheels are bronze (the store lighting makes them look gray) and I am really excited to get these on the car :)
I went with 18x9.5 + 38 with 245/40/18 for the tires. I went with some red lug nuts and black center caps that I'll post when they're on the car.
Also I am hoping to get these installed sometime in November:

I have a set of BC Racing Coilovers with Swift Springs just waiting to be installed <3 I actually got them before I got the wheels, but figured I would wait till I swap wheels before installing the coilovers. One of the things I am waiting for is getting a camber kit for the rears. I don't plan on dropping my car THAT much, but enough to make the car look good and especially highlight my new wheels :D

Anyways thats it for now, look out for the next update after I get the wheels installed!

It's a gundam decal from this site. https://nevercontent.jp/password (site is down currently, look up nevercontent.jp on Instagram). I actually have a decent amount of decals from this guy. I think I've seen a few users around with his stuff too!

Here's some quick pics from after getting the coils installed! I'll look to get some better pics sometime this weekend hopefully. Apartment parking lot was pretty full so couldn't get a good picture from the side of the car.
