Love this color. Great head turner. Beautiful in the sun with the pearl catching eyes. Mean looking at night under fluorescent and dim streets. Proud to own this color. Getting new shoes soon and maybe lower it. Dunno if I wanna worry more than I already do about pot holes and body damage out here.

Sharp. The black around your rear taillights look more pronounced. What did you do?

I bought my hot rod last Saturday.
I had them add the type R wing in black for contrast. Getting windows tinted next week. I like to add more mods like red tips just ends like the concept Type R and maybe the red emblems. Gloss black wrap on the lettering on back later on. This is the 2017 Sports Touring.

Tint on the outside? How well does that weather outside?
Also did you vinyl wrap the lettering and emblem?
Looks as good as the first day I got it done. However, you will see swirl marks from washing your car in the film. Not such a big deal unless your looking for it in the sun and up close.

The emblems were spray painted with high gloss black.

I saw it done with plasti-dip, but i thought that stuff looks cheap. The high gloss paint looks better. I bet hard to tape up the crevices in between letters and emblem?

Yeah, I didn't do it. Went a professional wrapper/tint shop. 15+ years of experience. First time he did a civicx taillight wrap. Enjoyed the task and did a great job. Was 100 for the job. Which seemed reasonable considering the work involved. Also tinted the reflectors and 3rd brake light. Didn't effect visibility at all.

With spray I am sure it looks much better and glossier. However, in NYC cops break balls for tinted tails so if I need to remove it. It's not that serious. With paint it's a whole project.
