Which carbon fiber vinyl wrap did you use? You use some sort of heat gun or something there? I tried using the highest hot setting from a hairdryer and that did not work with the wrap as it will not form or stick at all.

Cheap stuff from Amazon. The measurements worked for this. We'll see how it holds up. I used a heat gun ish I got from work like $10 with my employee discount.

I just put in the smoked side markers today and almost went clear... those look pretty good. Also liking those red accents inside, good to see them in a real car, may have to order those next ?

So I'm not sure where to post this. But this came up in the "general discussion" search. But I was wondering the exact comparison and compatibility with the EX front bumper and the SI/Hatchback bumper. Looking to get one since I messed up the bottom of mine with a million holes. Plus I think it looks killer. If an admin can move this post to the proper thread if need be. I'd appreciate it.

Changing out my lighting to LEDs was the first thing I did on mine. I got the JDM red leds on Amazon that were at least as bright as the upper segments, and made the whole thing look evenly lit. For some reason it now says it doesn't fit my car but I know that's wrong.

That's a good tip - thanks! I had not considered "red" bulbs as the original is clear, but I can see how that might help now that you mention it. I was very satisfied with the turn and reverse results, but the brakes were... whuummmmp whump mediocre. I will try some red!

I did my front emblem today, but am still waiting for my black SPORT badge to arrive.

I have the black civic badge, and am doing something special with a new TOURING badge I bought.

I like the badges because they break up all that uni-color blank field on the rear end.
May I ask where you got the black sport badge? Looking to badge swap as well but can’t find any sport badges anywhere and that’s the only thing holding me back

Nothing major done today. Just gave her a good wash and swapped out the chrome Honda emblems for some gloss black Emblems.

Anybody else enjoy washing their own car?
When you removed the rear H emblem, did the tabs break? I heard after removing the emblem and the tabs fall into the trunk causing it to rattle a bit. I want to replace my emblem with the black one, but this is a concern of mine.

None of the tabs broke off of the rear emblem when I removed mine. One tab did break off of the front emblem, but im not really concerned about it making any rattling noises.
