This is what the chrome on the front looks like blacked out in the daytime. I still want to do the plastic under and above it to match. But it looks so much more aggressive now.

I didn't get a black car when I got my EX this week since my family's had black cars (including me) since before I could walk, but this is a beauty.

Used some nightshade on my front reflectors and I think they turned out great; nice glossy black like all my other accents. And at night the lights are red so that was an unexpected plus lol. Shoutout to Ethan for the advice!

Finally dipped the front and back Honda emblems as well as the chrome above the windows on each side. I really found the chrome above the windows ridiculous, given that the front grill is blacked out and the chrome is black on every other hatchback car color. FYI, the front and back emblems look great, but the side chrome above the windows did not turn out as well. In the end, I'm satisfied with the results.

Next up, tinting windows followed by some LED lights!

Flashpro is here. But, Honda broke some clips in my trunk when putting my black badge on. So I am in a loaner. Soon! I will let

you know how it is when I install it.
Would you mind directing me to where you found the black Honda logo? And the dealership installed it for you?

I painted the logo myself. I was unable to find them online. I had to have the dealer order me a normal one and paint it because once you take the old one off, you can not reuse it. The clips break.

Ah I see. Once it arrived, how hard was it to install and swap out? Did you do both the front and back?

Again, the Honda dealership put them on for me. The trunk is a huge pain and I had them put the emblem on when I had the grille swapped out. You have to take the entire front grille apart to get the emblem off and back on. the trunk has to be disassembled to get the rear one. It is no easy task for such a small thing.

(This thread has changed drastically over time. The original car was rear ended and I got a WOP Civic. Read on and enjoy or skip to the end and see the new WOP as it unfolds!)

Hello everyone, I am somewhat new to this forum but I am anxious for us to all share our ideas; so I am going to start my own thread.

So far I have not done a whole lot, but I might as well share as I go.
We have a 2016 Civic and is black in color. 1.5T.
We got it for my girlfriend(Traded in our 2015 Jeep Renegade).

Here in the picture I have attached it shows I have already:
Taken the badging off the rear
Tinted the clear lenses
And also I have PlastiDipped the H emblem with black dip and a few coats of clear on top.
(Please ignore the stupid plate frames and inserts, they will be gone soon)
I have also blacked out the front side reflectors. I would share a picture but I drove my truck to work today.

I have a long way to go but it's a start. Hopefully we see some aftermarket accessories soon!

Excuse how dirty she is!

Where do you get the tinted clear lenses? Really interested in getting them...

blacking out headlights and taillights is probably the worse thing you can do. it looks cheap and it makes it hard for anyone else to see your brake lights or signals. putting a light vinyl smoke on it is the best route to go.

Guess its a good thing that you aren't driving my car or paying for my mods then huh!? Maybe all of us with tinted lights should have checked with you first to get your opinion before we made our decision!? :rolleyes:
