After getting ridiculous quotes for wrapping door handles.. I decided to tackle the job myself after I realized how easy it is to take off the handles. Here is a time-lapse of me wrapping the drivers side handle. It was the last of the four that I did. Took me almost 4 hours since I was going back and forth between my garage and bedroom, taking my time with each one.

OP has been updated with pictures for all mods up to date. Not going as slow as I thought.. :p

Also, here's a video of the side marker install. Struggled a bit on the driver side but once I figured that out, the passenger side took less than 2 minutes.

If I may ask, where did you purchase the Mugen style window visors? I'm in love! Thanks in advanced!

eBay! https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-16-Up-...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

Just note that the fitment isn't 100% perfect. The drivers side catches on the visor but not enough to stop/scratch anything. A little bit of wet sanding can fix this, I just haven't gotten around to it. It seems to be more dramatic for some than others, so just something to be aware of. I personally, took the risk as I much rather prefer this look versus the OEM ones. If authentic Mugen ones get released, I won't hesitate to get them.

Thank you! Yeah, the OEM ones are nice but the shop is charging a whooping $250 to get installed....no thanks! I look forward to looking into these and seeing if they are worth buying or if I should just wait for the authentic to come in. Thanks again and can't wait to see what else you add to your car (I'll be following this thread for sure!).

Appreciate it man! It's fun getting back into the car/mod scene.

And I should also mention that I took off the double-sided tape that it came with an added ½" 3M automotive tape. No issues so far, the stuff seems to be pretty strong.

Nice! Looks like we’re going to have to plan an IE meet soon, starting to find quite a few people in this area.

And I just search the part numbers on Google until I find the cheapest price since they’re always changing.

Another satisfied customer of Riverside Metro here. Took me 5 months to get my plates in the mail, but I dont think it was the dealerships fault. Thinking someone stole the plates from my mail.

That’s weird. I actually got my plates in less than a month. Waiting on my legacy plates tho.. that’s been about 3 months now.

Here's a slo-mo video comparing OEM to Acuity. Not going to lie.. it's hard to see a difference in the video, especially without a knob. However, I could feel a huge difference after making the change. I also have the install video time-lapse that I need to put together.

So I wasn't completely satisfied with the way the roof looked with the hatch spoiler still blue. Since I wrapped my handles, I decided to tackle this with the left over vinyl I had. Happy to say, it turned out great! Here's a time-lapse of the process.. the completed look is in the OP.

You are a patient man. Wrapping that looked like a pain in the ass. Where's the pic of the finished wing? Checked the garage and didn't see it.
Lol, it took a couple hours..

My bad, cleaner pic is in opening post but here it is after I blacked out the hatchback deck lid and reinstalled.
