    You can search that part number and find the black visors on just about any Honda parts website or possibly even Ebay. College Hills Honda distinguishes the two types (chrome and black) very well on their online parts catalog. Again, the black visor part number is: 08R04-TGG-100A. I ordered mine from HondaPartsNow.com because they were the cheapest after shipping cost. Here's the link: https://www.hondapartsnow.com/genuine/honda~visor~door~5d~sport~08r04-tgg-100a.html

    These are for the sport touring/type R versions with the black wrapped window frames. You pretty much can order these anywhere with the part number I provided. I got mines directly from Honda at their cost with being very good friends with the parts guy.
    Thank you for providing a link for everyone to use. Agreed this is one of the few places that has them at this low price. I don't think most on eBay can beat it either lol.

    ChrisFix makes great videos. Don't forget to pick up a bottle of Soapy Wooder if you're gonna attempt to clean your engine bay.

    I got my XBT Controller for my LEDs and completely finished one headlight. I can now control my RGB running light, halo, and demon eye from my cell phone via BlueTooth.

    This will be the last teaser pic. Next picture will show these dang things finally installed! I wish I could finish this right now, but I'm gonna be backpacking in MI upper peninsula for the next week.

    Well done. Looks nice and clean.

    I've been thinking about doing similar along with The Drop in Projectors from The Retrofit Source. How was install? Any tips or tricks with the housings? I was going to Black out the housing as well and replace the Turn with different amber LED and get rid of the turn reflector housing. Thoughts on that?

    Enjoy your trip.

    That looks great but is probably expensive and a bit complicated

    I would definitely do the H1 Mini projector with the Retro-quick brackets. This has been a huge pain in the rear.

    Opening the lamp was really easy. Few small screws, some plastic tabs, nothing crazy. Just pop your housing in the oven @200°f for 5-8 mins to soften the sealant and it will split open. There is a lot of videos on youtube on how to split a headlight.

    Blacking out the housing will be a bit more involved than you'd think. The decorative shroud is plastic welded to the clear cover. You'll have to grind away the welds and epoxy them back together when you're done. This isn't that big of a deal, but it's not like you can just pull some screws to get at the chrome.

    Replacing the blinker shouldn't be hard, but you'll want to put something in place of it. That lamp is blocking some of the circuitry for the DRL.

    Yes, and yes.

    One other thing, you should look at switch back LED strips. You could install a LED strip like I did in the DRL that would blink amber for the turn signal. I was going to do this, but I have a thing for RGB :p

    Reminded of my GF corolla type S but googling it I guess it's suppose to be a replacement for the Si in Austrialia, I could be wrong though, I only read one article
