This is the last thing I did on mine was add some red pinstripes.

I got it from Amazon and it's called Kwik Tape, 1/8th inch. Works great in my opinion but I need to order more to fix some areas I slipped on but not a big deal. I've only had it for 1 week and so far it's been fine in the rain.

I actually like the wing black. I don't typically like fuel door covers being changed and I'm with the others on that grill (but obviously subjective). Overall pretty good.

If you enjoy it, good. You shouldn't care what others think.

Lmao I did. I was just curious to see what other Civic owners would think. I did try my best to not be as obnoxious with my cosmetic mods as possible.

Nah it's not as bad as some make it out IMO. But that wing is overkill and the sidemarkers I think need to be clear instead of black. so that section blends more thoroughly. Maybe look at an Si spoiler instead so it's not so LOOK AT ME! Also, if you're going to debadge, don't start putting stickers all over it. One thing I can commend you on is not putting those hideous Type R badges on like so many others.

I thought the RS badge looked nice and I'm ashamed at the NA and Canadian marketing team for being afraid to give the EXT Coupe proper turbo decals. It's a sporty ride and it should look like it

Luckily the spoiler is only $200 so if I decide to swap to something a little less overkill, at least I already have the drill holes ready.

It's definitely not bad...some of the other mods I've seen on this forum are much tackier. Yours doesn't really seem tacky. I'm just confused about painting the gas tank and the red part under the hood. The gas cover doesn't look bad, but at the same time doesn't really need the attention (because it's a gas cover). And since you are probably the only person that looks under the hood for your car (and most likely not every day), why paint it red?

Otherwise looks good.

Yeah the gas cap seems to be a topic of debate here. Honestly my friend did it to his and I loved the way it looked. I almost did carbon but I felt that might have been too tacky. At the end of the day, it's just plastidip so I can peel it off when I get bored with it.

Re: painting the radiator cover red.... Another just plastidip paint job to make it a bit more personal. Also if I took the car to local car meets, the hood would be propped open I think it makes the engine bay pop a bit more.

Personally I think your front end and rear end bumpers look better than my Si

But is lose the grill, badges, and stickers

You didn't get the memo? eBay started a racing / car modification company.
