Hello Everyone! Need some pushes in the right direction [:

Hey guys, names Vince! hopefully you'll hear about me in a few months somewhere besides these forums. I just purchased a Honda Civic 09

Here's a picture of the baby


First and foremost, I made my username SteamedRice for the reason that I am here, coming to those that just might tear me up haha. I bought this car for the pure reason of aesthetic modification. In my town there is currently this Nerdvention going on, a It is a "who can nerd up their car the most hardcore" competition with a grand prize of 15,000. So simply speaking, technically for the sake of this -- I am a ricer. More over I choose to be.

now, what I came here for is to ask "where to start" basically.
I chose the civic because the wheels are beautiful for what I need, making the car look like a decepticon-- they look like blades haha. And this used one I bought has Angel Eyes. Know that first and foremost I am a NERD, not a Car guy. SO please don't be upset at all these stupid questions

Questions D:
1. Is there anyway to change the color of the Angel Eyes? I am making my car into a Decepticon (from the transformers series) And definitely need Purple eyes. I saw one from "cincitydesigns" that were red, but I heard they were full of scams.
2. The biggest thing Im doing to this car is this in car thing I want, in which whenever I shift (automatic) from Drive, Reverse, etc. I want a prerecorded message of an Decepticon saying things like "Drive Activated" etc. I know this sounds crazy, but I feel like its my shoe in for this 15,000 dollar prize! [: (is there anyway to make it play that sound OUTside the car? as well? maybe in the front grill?)
3. Are there any tutorials on how to change the inside LEDs of the car (near the steering wheel, etc) to be PURPLE? I saw a few different mods and they were beautiful, but I searched endlessly on the forums to no avail.
4. That tacky decepticon symbol -,- where Can i go to get one of those that would fit the civic and not look terribad.
5. Anyone sell METAL gas lids? not the caps that screw in, i mean literally the lid. Much like the Eclipse GT models have.
6. Lastly, where do I head to get LEDS in the front grills of the car that would PULSE purple to the sound of the cars voice when its shifting gears.


I know this is a long article, but please help me ^^;

#2 I am sure you can but you will have to wire in a small speaker and attach it to the grill or somwhere outside the car where it cannot be seen.
#3 I would say it is not worth it...find an overlay or two that you can mix with blue to make purple..otherwise. http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/inter...-red-blue.html

#4. the internet
#5. try CarId.com or other places like that but i dont know if they make those for 8th gens
#6 there are a lot of sites out there.. superbrightled.com is one a lot use..I have used Amazon.com a few times for LED..just shop around to find a good price for what you want.

#2 The shifter tells the ecu what gear its in, so you could send a wire from the ecu to a system that when it sees voltage, it would play a prerecorded message. seems like that would be damn hard to do though
