I FINALLY equipped the Sedan with a BODY KIT! (Pics)

I bought the kit for $175 picked up from "itzkalvin" from this site. It sat in my storage for about 3 weeks before I could find time to install it during Spring Break. Man, installing a lip kit is such a pain! The body kit wasn't a perfect fit so we had to drill our own holes. The front was 100% perfect. The sides sucked the most because sometimes the kit would rise up so high that the door would hit it when opening, so we had to modify the way it fit. The rear sucks too because I can't find a way to make the right side stay up... Maybe I'll just take it to a shop for the rear or something. Anyway, I think it looks great. Some the rear doesn't fit flush with the car, but you can't really tell unless you stare at it. Its flat black and I don't feel like painting it b/c I think it looks fine. What do you guys think? Well, I THINK I'm finally done modding my car (for now).


During the install.


I couldn't get the rear to fit correctly, so it kinda just hangs down and the heat from the exhaust hits it. Oh well.

Yeah, I drove to LA last week and it kinda melted the bottom. But thats what I expected anyway. I precut some slots for the exhaust at the bottom, but those just got melted away. I figure, nobody is gonna see it anyway.

I'm actually from Dallas, Texas. I moved to San Diego about two years ago for college and I haven't gotten around to changing my license plates yet, that will happen during the summer. I remember going to an Austin meet when I first got my car, like in the summer of 2002, it was a long drive.

i had a bit of trouble keeping my side skirts to fit on tight so i used the double sided tape to hold it in place and then i used some smalls spots of urethane glue to keep it there and it worked amazing!

Man, thats the dumbest thing I've ever heard. First of all its not a knock off of the OEM Kit, it doesn't even look like the OEM kit. Its the RS Kit that many of the Sedans in Asia have. Are you saying that everything else sucks and will not fit correctly just because its not "OEM Honda Made?" Isn't that what aftermarket is? Why do you think it's time wasted when it doesn't come out perfect? I could have easily taken it to a body shop to pay someone to put it on for me, but at least I took the effort to DIY.

Do you have an OEM Kit? Did you put it on yourself?
