Is that an OEM Day/Night mirror? If so, how easy or hard is the install and how do you like it? Great build, thanks!
yes, OEM mirror and suppose to be just plug and play, of course requires some panel removing but shouldn't be hard... I didn't install it yet, just tried mirror itself, but let you know when I'm done

Started and finished rear deck speaker upgrade and sound deadening . I thought it will be harder to do, since almost everything needed to be disassembled, but turned out it was easy and took me just 4-5 hours with lunch brake, cutting and sticking deadener and cutting my finger :(
for anyone who is about to do it, be careful with your new speakers, mine are Alpine coaxials and they don't really fit, I just forced them to fit, rear plastic cover doesn't have much space in between speaker and plastic...
Sorry for crappy pics, I'm 5'5" so it was really hard to move around with a camera lol

I just spoiled my car :D
hehe, , Ikon Motorosport OEM style spoiler, very good quality and fitment... didn't make any holes, just provided 3m tape...
Idk if this is exact same size and fitment as OEM spoiler, but I love it... I was going to get Si style spoiler, but I think this small one suits LX better

Spoiler looks good. I've been looking at ikonmotorsports for them too. Super newbie question (I'm totally new to DIY mods) - is the adhesive 3M tape only enough to hold a spoiler on after years of driving?

Hey,
sorry for a late response, whatever tape ikon uses is rock solid. Since Aug 2018 didn't have any issues, spoiler is attached as strong as back in 2018, car mostly parked outside, car washes are sometimes through automated wash, never had a single issue
I bought a spoiler for my tesla as well, it is been 8 months under 120F on my Vegas trip and back, didn't even move when I forced it, it was solid af lol
paint and finish from ikon is superb as well
sometimes they ship spoilers without 3M, just make sure to let them know to double check, but they always refund XX%. Still worth it

Hey man, Awesome work so far!
I just picked up my new civic hatchback and I'm thinking about a speaker upgrade, did you install an amp for your speakers or are they being powered directly from your stock HU?

No, no amp yet, just stock LX HU.
I'm planning small underseat sub, that should be enough in my case
