    One underrated aspect of the hatch is how rugged it is. You gotta wear kid gloves with it THOUGH. and it is unforgiving to the egregious. the bumper design, if you back into something lightly, it prevents damage to the meat of the rear and front bumpers and relegates it to the edges. one good thing about the vents.

    This was two weeks ago but removed the window decals. I ordered a CleanCulture banner and will be PlastiDipping my emblems and badge.

    Plastic dip sucks. I used it and it was a waste of time and money. Looks cheap, because it is cheap. If I can't have something painted, it will remain chrome.

    I'm contemplating getting the front and rear JDM badges to install on instead of dipping, but still thinking about it.

    Got over it listening to the rattle and smelling gas fumes from my mishimoto catch can installed on the wife's car with only 500 miles on it. Decided to take it apart locate the source of the rattle and punch notches on the lock nut for the brass filter to hold it from rattling, replaced the plastic 3/8 barb fittings to brass, and replaced the silicone hoses with regular 3/8 rubber fuel line. No smell and no rattle ever since. :thumbsup:IMG_1278.JPGIMG_1281.JPG

    I agree. Looks super clean and simple. The only thing that's throwing me off is the clear front side markers. Maybe its the angle of the picture but its so pronounced.

    Hope you don't mind @nickyd , just an idea with the smoke/tinted side markers would look like on your ride:

    Man I really do like that! That will be happening. Thank you for the edited pic. I got the clear ones when I thought I would be keeping some of the chrome. Love it.
