Couldn’t wait any longer to put these HFPs on for the first time. Polished, sealed and planted on some new rubber.

What lug nuts are you using on the hfp wheels?Yesterday I installed Swift Springs, SPC rear camber arms and GarageLine 20/25mm spacers. Looking and feeling awesome. Also played with my new toy- Karcher K1710 Cube pressure washer, MTM foam cannon with 1.1 nozzle upgrade, Meguiar’s Hyper Wash and D156 as a drying aid with my Griot’s Garage Large PFM drying towel. Suds and slickness during the wash was insane
Front struts weren’t so bad. Followed the videos and write ups online. I ended up finding that keeping one top strut nut on, along with tapping and tilting the hub forward allowed just enough space for it to pop almost out. Removed that last top nut and bam, strut came right out with ease. Also have to make sure bottom three ball joint/control arm nuts are off for this to work too, otherwise the hub won’t tilt. You definitely want to do it this way instead of tilting the arm outwards from the car, that can definitely mess up your axle. Took a minute to figure out the process, but made the other side super quick.
Rear camber arms were a blast. While I had the springs out, it was a matter of using a 3/8” drive swivel ratchet with a short 17mm sock to break the nuts loose. Then used a ratcheting swivel wrench to finish the bolt the rest of the way out. Before you remove this inner bolt, it helps to now unbolt the bolt and nut on the hub side. This frees up the tension on the inner bolt and it pops right out.

Haven't just yet, but plan to install that soon. I don't foresee any issues with that though.Nice you went 2020 were you able to move over your fortin over to it
Awesome Congrats on the buyHaven't just yet, but plan to install that soon. I don't foresee any issues with that though.
which mirror did you end up using?Got the auto dimming/compass mirror in today. Will be installing probably this weekend.
The one I pictured worked fine for my 2019, but didn't work in my 2020 with Honda Sensing. Ended up selling that mirror and just kept the non-dimming OEM one. It isn't bad with my tinted windows.which mirror did you end up using?
