I just realized I never started a build thread on the forum and since the car is pretty much done, I thought I'd show the progress of Aria since I got her.

Just a little background on myself first - My name is Conner and I am a recent Hofstra grad originally from Syracuse NY and now live in the Brooklyn area. I've been modding cars for a few years (mostly ricing out my old coupe) but now am looking to make my hatch super clean!

Mod list so far:
Downforce Solutions V2 splitter
Throtl.com Banner
Smoked Side markers
Rally Armor Mud Flaps
Boomba racing wing risers
ProCivic Window Visors
Ktuner v1.2
Magnaflow exhaust
Cnt Racing Catless Downpipe
Prl Stage 1 intake kit
D2 racing lowering springs
Enkei NT03+m
Dunlop DZ102
Carbon overlays for the interior
F1 style rear brake light
Si Steering wheel (awaiting install)
GAS Spoiler (awaiting delivery)

I have attached photos in the best order I can! Enjoy and let me know what you guys think!

Love that lip and great car overall. Did you use the clip holes at the bottom of the fender and drill through the lip, or did you make all new holes on the fender?
All new wholes directly into the bumper, just lined it up the way i wanted and drilled out about 8 very secure spots

Are those two lip struts mounted into the front license plate holes? Was the lip flopping around in the wind at high speeds without them in there?
no theyre drilled into their own holes, and no this splitter isnt going anywhere

This build is sweet! I'm thinking about getting the PMM Hatch as well and I'm deciding whether to go black or chrome wheels. I feel like both look great on the car and your silver wheels look amazing. Did you get your lip professionally installed? If so how much to get it on?

Thanks, I really appreciate it! I installed everything myself aside from the lowering springs and tires, but that's just because I dont have the tools necessary
