what do you guys think

Here's my work car. I shaved all emblems, trunk lock and the best part was the entire side body molding. There was like a 1/2" long valley that it ran down for the entire length of the car. I thought the molding just stuck to the side but the sheetmetal actually has a channel that it embeds into. Plus there was major rust on all 4 wheelwells and a large crease dent on the front fender of the side that the pictures are on from sliding into a stop sign while i was messing around one winter And the mirrors, handles and bottom trim of the car is factory black.

I still need to touch up the black trim around the windows and remove some overspray and sand and buff but what do you think so far. and is it better or worse than what an original looks like with the black mirror and undertrim and body molding.

Oh yea, and i put the exhaust off my 02 EX on this 93 dx...with some minor fabrication

PS it was getting dark when i took the pic so it looks offwhite but it isnt.

almost doesnt look like a civic from the side, my brother had one just like that, i thought it was ugly with all the black on white. Not bad.
