FIRST MOD: Interior light LED swap. Really happy with the brightness of these new LEDs. Did not like the ugly yellow ones at all.

May 2: Fitting & installing some Rally Armor flaps. The civic doesn't have good stock holes for these. I used the first bolt for the height adjustment, and then had to get creative with the rest of them. The front flaps were clipping the tire a little bit, so I used some heavy duty double sided 3M tape to secure them to my fender. Have not had any problems with them so far.

Painted the washers, so they don't stick out too much. Much better now.

May 10: Had a old vortex generator from my EVO laying around, I was bored and decided to fabricate it and make it fit the Civic. Dremeled it out, sanded, and threw a quick coat on. Pictures of the final product coming soon!
This is how it looked before modifying. Way too big :p

May 14 Installed some red paddle shifter extensions. Really makes the steering wheel come together. The quality is surprisingly well made! Feels very weighted and sturdy once installed.

May 17: Pictures of the door still decals, and the vortex generator. Not a perfect fit, but it will do for now.

Love the red pinstripe. Do it yourself? And did you break/trim the pins on the rear JDM badge to make it fit?

Yea it was my first time using the pin stripe tape, came out really well. And yes. I did have to break the pins. Will get a proper fitting badge soon.

I'm confused. Is this a Type S or a Sport Touring? Rebadged? Interested to see how this turns out. Good job.

It's just a rebadged Sport Touring. Since the Hatchbacks don't get a Si variant

Nice work! Loving the Imperial Insignia on the license plate, badass! Mind if I ask what paint you used on the vortex generator? It looks perfect for glossifying my foglight surrounds and rear bumper garnish.
I have the can in my car, I will send you a photo as soon as I get a chance. You might be able to make it out in that photo above with it in the background.

And agreed, it produces a very nice shine. Just make sure the surface is nice and clean, and you apply even coats, and it comes out fantastic.

Absolutely incredible. I really like the theme you got going on in the car and the consistency of the red black and white being used. The Storm Trooper is a nice touch lol

Must've accidentally skipped the interior LED pic because damn, what a difference those LED's make. Where did you get them from? I hate the yellow'ish light too lol

This is the can by the way. I bought mine at Home Depot, but I believe they should carry it at Osh, Lowe's, and Walmart.
