It irks me when I see peeps replace these stock rims when they look so sweet! I would have gladly bought some myself but they are expensive. The dark chrome ones are nice too.
I’m a huuuge fan of the Si rims. Right when the Si came out, I was actually lucky to have gotten them for $500 brand new from someone who worked at a local Honda dealership.

Agreed! I sometimes think about replacing my Sport wheels, but I really do like them and can find a lot of other things to use $1,000+ on that it would cost to replace them.

Not 10th gen but used ONR on my sons ‘00 civic. Paint has seen better days but he loved the way it looked and how the trim went from faded to damn that pops. Now I feel comfortable using it on my FK7

Small correction, got to do it properly and get the year right.

Before (term of Heisei 22 year, fuel efficiency sticker on the left)

The correct one (term of Heisei 27 year), note there's a gold rim surrounding it

Less than 5 minutes job, use a razor blade to scrape the old one off, just need it on the first corner, and the rest I can just hand peel it, then 5 seconds rub of Goo Gone, windows cleaner, put the new one on and tada!

Swapped to black mirror caps and added a black vinyl to the taillights

Finally got out of the house today and took my car to a car wash to rinse it off and apply the sealant. I didn’t do the wet mirror wax only because I was sweating my ass off even in the shade and my arms were getting tired. Don’t stare at my rims I know they look dirty but I swear I washed them about a week or so ago. I didn’t realize how clean the windows look after applying the sealant on them too. I did it ass backwards and started with the hood first and worked my way around the car finishing off with the roof lol don’t laugh. Only bad thing is I was on the wrong side of town doing my detailing. I should have went somewhere else but I needed to rinse my car off first. So here is the final results of the extreme top coat sealant. Maybe next weekend I’ll get around to the mirror wet wax lol whatever you call it lol

Looks great. Where'd you get the mirror caps?
Ebay. If you're looking just be aware there are 2 kinds, ones that stick on with 3M tape or direct replacement caps. I went with the latter. I've heard that the 3M covers don't look good.

Put the red tape on the lip because I was bored. I actually like it.

Also adjusted the valves because I was bored prior to this the day before and had to do a 3rd gear pull.
