    Either way is fine. When mounting tires they don’t do anything much with spokes or inside barrel of the wheels. You don’t need to coat outside the barrel which is covered up by the tire anyway.

    I do it before hand since it’s lighter and easier to handle than after with tires on. Just personal preference.

    J’s Racing GT carbon fiber 1600 mm wing arrived from Go Tuning. It’s made by Voltex for J’s Racing and is exactly the same except it has different end caps which are notched and looks better than the Voltex rectangular end caps.

    Quality is impeccable and the gloss finish has zero defects. It actually measures exactly 1590 mm. Stock wing measures 1200 at top of stands outside to outside and at widest of stands at 1490 mm. Which puts the J’s wing at exactly 50 mm per side past the widest part of the stock wing stands or inside the outer most edge/crease of the tail light housing.

    Those measurements are important because two reasons why you do not want the 1700 mm wing Voltex sells:

    1) It’s been proven on track the 1700 mm increases drag a lot and even on slow corners increased understeer.

    2) Voltex themselves do not recommend the 1700 mm especially on street use.

    Detailed testing on and off track coming with a full review write up soon. For now these are hard to get so if you really want one, only Go Tuning has it and only 3 are available in stock. Otherwise be it J’a branded or Voltex branded, you’ll have to wait 2-3 months before more are shipped over with most being presold.

    It comes in a very big box as you can see. Also, we are working to design a new front splitter given we’ve not found any current splitter up to our design, install, and quality standard to date that doesn’t require modifications to fit.

    Kid riding a bike through the parking lot at work crashed into the car. Today I’ll find out about what the school is going to do about it

    Overland Designs Hood Visor came today, it hasn't popped out on me yet, so that's a good start. Black top with a red bottom. Red isn't that visible though since the black rim is pretty large.

    Sun also popped out for the first time in what feels like weeks, so went out for a short drive; got some ice cream. Snapped this with my iPhone. Car needs a wash though :(

    There are no reports for the Overland. I hadn't had much luck with Sweidit's visor hood (all their other parts fit fine). Even after Sweidit rushed a second part, test fit it (on another Civic), and used thinner swede; it just didn't want to stay in. The Overland is a very tight fit, I don't think the front clips are all the way in (like OEM), but it's snug enough where it doesn't pop out, so I'm cool with it (with the visor hoods, even if it seems secure enough, I've learned to doubt that it is from experience). My car has been very finicky to say the least.

    Nope, it’s locked in tight if you follow my instructions I posted in FK8 Product Review FB group. Give it a good solid, quick pound on the front edge on both sides when installing and will never pop out. Reason being those front clips hook in extremely well. Once in it’s not going anywhere...not to mention Overland Designs used the proper automotive grade alacantara/suede that does not bulk up.

    Did you follow my instructions and post in FK8 Product Reviews? The trick is guide the front edge (toward glass) down into the groove while you push stitched edge in.
