Re: How does it look?

I'm not a fan of black wheels, or two tone paint schemes, but it does look well done.

It's all done in plasti dip so if I decide later I don't like I just peel it off. But I couldn't decide what to do with it. The rims are torn up though so they have to stay dipped. I messed up really badly the first time around and ended up stripping the paint and the enamel off the rims, so I took them down to bare metal.

Re: How does it look?

Take off the black on top. Maybe paint the rims silver? The gas tank too. Otherwise it looks like a nice coupe.

Re: How does it look?

can you do the mirrors and take off the gas door black. if you do the spoiler you should do the trunk and hood. find a line on the car and us that as your cut off.

The rims, spoiler and paint look good. Gas tank door look funny. Tinting the windows and smoking the taillights will make it look ricey

I will be perfectly honest with you...I have no idea why. I just kinda did it and left it. I ditched the black arches. It started to pull and I honestly didn't like it. I'm I'm the process of stripping the spoiler to redo it, but I went way to thin so it is a slow and annoying process. I'm about to just use a whole can on it so it's thick enough to just peel off nicely. I'm leaving the underskirt, which I know you can't really see, black and the rims and I am going to redo the badges on the back, but I think I'll just leave the paint after that. I like to be able to detail the car without worrying about screwing something up. And I'm starting to think it is already a great looking car. Though I will be adding a skirt kit eventually. http://www.kaminari.com/honda-civic-full-lip-kit-2004 I think this one adds a little beef without being ridiculous.

Re: How does it look?

Yea man, tinted windows look great with the Magnesium color. Mine are only 50% side/35% rear (VA legal limit) but it looks nice without being too dark. If legal smoking the front lights also adds a nice touch. Our color looks great clean, but yea it does need a little more low. Just did KY/GC last weekend, it's totally worth it!

I wanna try and avoid dropping it just because I don't want to always feel like I am off roading...And I'm on a budget haha. I'm going with either 30% all around(MD limit) or 30% on the front half and 25% on the back half. It was tinted when I got it from the dealer, but legally they can't sell it because they can't gauge the level, which sucks because it was a beautiful tint job and they did a s*** a** job taking it off. I'm trying to find a picture...no dice, did find when I had my "smoked headlights". What do you think of this skirt kit though??

Re: How does it look?

The kit looks good; it's different without being too elaborate. But yea, that pic is too dark for my taste as far as tinting headlights is concerned. But I did find this pic a while back of what I like with headlights. This one is possibly my favorite em2 thus far...

Re: How does it look?

The kit is a little to much for my taste. I prefer the Type R, RS or Mugen. Even though those are the only kits that anyone has.

That's a nice looking kit. And yeah, they were a cheap set I thought to be smoked chrome but instead the lenses were tinted and badly at that. 2 different levels of tint. Even with my 6500k his I couldn't see at night. Almost hit a deer on a back road. I like the drop on that one too. If were to go with a drop kit though how would I know which springs to buy some I'm not getting the "driving a truck on a dirt road" feeling? Would I need a camber kit too?
