Pretty new to doing things to a car (call me a noob). Added the AFE/Takeda “cold air” intake. New to plasti dipping so I’m experimenting. Tinted the side indicators. Looking for some ideas and seeing what you guys think. Don’t be mean just give me your opinions!

Peel the plasti-dip off the antenna. Looks cheap, like you had to get a replacement from a junkyard.

Frame your photos better and don't shoot in portrait mode.

The "CIVIC" on the rear bumper doesn't look too bad, though. Can you get a shot with better exposure (i.e., not focused on your hand)?

True I didn’t know how I liked it on the antenna but that was actually the first time I’ve ever plasti dipped so I wanted to try it to make sure I could before I did anything else. I’ve been posting from my phone so it was having issues posting pictures that were better so I quickly snapped those before it started to rain. I’ll upload better pictures tomorrow

Normally they say, "Test in an inconspicuous area," but you went straight for the tallest part of the car. ;)

Oh, and the Darth Vader sticker might get scratched up when you roll down the window...

Where did u get the "CIVIC"
They’re just some cheap ones from Autozone, Pilot is the brand. I think it’s like $1.50 a letter. Plastic with a “chrome” coating and just plasti dipped them
