    Did you paint or had front grill sprayed with the Rustoleom rubber coating?

  3. CivicsClass
    Can you post a link to where you got your smoked side markers? Did they still have to be adapted like the clear ones?

      You won't need to modify the stock socket as these smoked ones have the 4 slots for the tabs to match up into. Just plug and play. Same design as the orange stock markers essentially.

    West coast scenery for the win. I love this car, looks great. My WOP is on it's way to having no chrome left, all black, but after seeing yours I almost think I might regret it! Great job.

      Beautiful 17-mile Drive on Pebble Beach at Monterey Bay. My favorite place to go to get away from the Valley stress.

      Thanks for the compliment. I think no chrome would look equally eye catching. Live with the chromeless look for a bit and if you change your mind, you can always peel it off. =)

      Haha no ones, just my crappy MS Paint job. So many people plastidip the front grille, but ignore the rest of the car. To me, only doing the grille makes the car very one-sided. It needs some black accents elsewhere so I just picked what came to mind :) you could also try the gas-hatch.

      Yeah, I want some flow, so which is why I will the request the shop to wrap the spoiler also

      @joserevelo and I were quoted:

      $120 roof
      $100 windows
      $60 mirrors both
      $40 grille

      I haven't inquired yet about the lip spoiler but we'll see when I get there. Hopefully it shouldn't be much

    Very nice man! Where did you get the red honda wheel caps?

    Hey buddy! Haven't had much time to work on my car. Love the white color:)

      Hey man! What have you been up to? Anything Honda related? Did you buy an Acura? Thanks for kind comment, but I do have to say that your's is badass too. I'm not sure yet, but I might get my midlife crisis car next year - MX-5. We'll see. Take it easy and good to hear from you.

    What exhaust tips did you put on yours?
    1. Dretlaw
      Hey bud. I ordered the ASEAN dual chrome exhaust tips from eBay seller, riennakane. It's $10 cheaper now than when I first ordered mine. I also ordered the OEM non-illuminated side sill garnish from him which he bundled up in one shipping. Here is the link to the exhaust tips:

      I really only wanted to stick with Honda OEM parts (domestic or imported).
