    Sorry about the lighting, I do most all my work at night :)

    I'll get some better shots soon but you get the idea. They would be bright like the wheels, hood mod and emblems if I went back to Champion Ave and snapped some photos like the one above.IMG_20190904_233144.jpg IMG_20190905_074856.jpg

    Not a fan of it. I'm trying to get rid of all the red (minus the Honda and Type-R emblem), but to each their own.

    Understood and agreed, each to theirs.
    What color is yours? Obviously not Rallye Red :)

    Nice work, the wheels are a bit much for me, I'd add some black accents to tone them down a bit. The orange side markers and rear turn bulbs really clash with the red IMO, swap those for clears to go with the white.

    I understand the yellow markers and bulbs comment BUT...
    I am keeping them because it is in reverence of the FK8 being the first CTR released in America. I wonder if other regions would want to trade their clears for our yellows :)

    And yeah, the red wheels took a bit of acclimation time. They are not as "in your face" in person.

    I 100% agree with you. I’m working on getting rid of all the Red on the outside of the car. I’ve even ordered some Black carbon fiber Honda badges to replace the Red ones.
