    i finally got around to installing the depo clear reflectors, and removed the "civic" emblem from the rear.....to me the chrome civic emblem doesn't go with the black chrome type-R emblems. just imo

    Also had the roof wrapped in gloss black over the weekend.

    Nice! I personally like the White too much to cover it up, but the gloss black looks real nice!

    Socal will destroy clear coat on the roof in a couple years. So it's a dual purpose upgrade in my eyes.

    I also love the white, I was originally going to have the car wrapped but decided against it because it would be a shame to not enjoy Championship White at least for a few months to a year.

    Would a couple layers of ceramic pro or opti pro help with that? I do not have that on any of my vehicles just yet but am planning to add it.

    Nice! I did this on my M3 since it didn't come with a carbon roof. I think I might do it to my PMM Type R as well. Looks great!

    I figured it out on my own, turn the wheels all to one side, then there are 3 Phillips screws to remove from inside the fender, (can't miss them) pull the fender liner as much as possible, get your hands in there, disconnect the wiring, get the reflector out, change bulb (amber one), put new reflector in, reconnect wiring, put screws back on. Takes 10 minutes, the only issue is that the wiring is very short
