I've been lurking on the forum for quite some time now and thought it's about time to join the fun and share. I picked up a 2016 EX-T in November, replacing my 2004 CRV. My 97 Prelude still sits in the garage. All my previous cars have been black, but I was really drawn to WOP. I have to say, I love it!

So far I have only done some cosmetic upgrades, most were options straight from Honda. Looking into suspension, intake, exhaust and new spoiler in the next few months. Also deciding on taking the 18" Work Stich Wheels off of my Prelude and throwing them on or going for a new set. I'm indecisive at the moment. Will be taking some better pics when the weather gets better and after a nice wax and detailing.

Not that great of pictures. But finally have my oem wheels on. I have been running ugly steelies so looks 100x better for me.
First time posting of pictures. I love how canada gets the sport with 6 speed manual turbo but has the nice touch screen and center screen where the tach is.

Painted my brakes red today :D. It's difficult to appreciate in the photo, but it makes the side profile view so much sexier

I used the duplicolor caliper paint kit. It comes with a spray can of brake cleaner, a can of paint, and a paint brush. Super easy - you don't even need to remove the calipers. Just use the paint brush to paint the parts of the calipers that you can reach. Obviously, not the most appropriate way to do it, but I'm just doing it for aesthetics. You can definitely take the entire caliper off and paint it the right way if you want to.

This is just one coat (on the thicker side). Instructions say that you can wait 15-30 min to reapply additional coats, or wait up to 5 days. I don't have a hydraulic floor jack, so I did each wheel one by one with the scissor jack in the trunk. I got lazy and didn't want to wait an additional 30min per wheel, so I only did one coat. I'll prob add a second coat next weekend.

This product is more expensive compared to the spray cans. I got it for $21.99 at autozone compared to a high heat spray paint can for ~$8. But I paid for the convenience of not having to take the calipers off and not having to cover my car with newspapers and garbage bags.

Wrapped my roof black, door handles, and a bit of the trunk to make the black flow more. Also got my smoked out side markers! :D
