Re: My Sunday Afternoon (56k OK!)

I woulda taken the grill out and painted it, overspray is the plauge. Are the old rims the one in the last picture- not on your car. I like thoes better.

Re: My Sunday Afternoon (56k OK!)

yeah I would have painted it off, but hopefully theres no over spray.

old rims = upgrading was a good idea in that case

Re: My Sunday Afternoon (56k OK!)

I didn't take the grill off because I didn't want to deal with taking the bumper off (it's f-ed up).. I just went crazy w/ the painter's tape and newspaper.. it did the job.

They are 17" Kyowa rims w/ 205.40.17 Neo-Gen tires.. But i'm losing the Nitto's for my new Falken tires (which you see on the old rim) and they are 205.45.17's so they'll take up more fender space too

Re: My Sunday Afternoon (56k OK!)

personally, i dont like the black trim pieces and mirrors, i think it makes the car look cheap. and i've never really been a fan stock grills painted black on anything other than a black car. but as long as you like it, its all the matters . the new rims are much better than the old ones btw

Re: My Sunday Afternoon (56k OK!)

well I painted the grill black to keep it looking clean.. just add a little more aggressive look. I agree about the trim peices, I wouldn't call it "cheap" but it doesn't looks as good as EX's I've thought about painting them myself, but I can't find Honda SSM aftermarket paint. I just cant see spending like 50-100 bucks to get a few peices painted.
