Re: My overhaul sneak peak

No its not the same color as supermex. this is firemist orange, then again not sure what color his is. this is more of an orange base than the california gold my car is now.

as for the seems like hater questions.

1. the hood fits fine it just wasn't closed and pinned down.

2. as for the pointless hole in the grill thats because the grill isn't installed. why install it for a test fit when its just getting taken out before paint anyways? So yes it will be filled with an altezza grill. along with RS sides and a hybrid rear.

3. Yes, the whole car is getting painted. but have to finish sanding first. the remove all interior, doos, bumpers, hood, trunk, and skirts. then sand the door jams and such. color change is a pain in the *** but worth it for the origionality imo.

4 if i have enough left over maybe a matching R6?

Re: My overhaul sneak peak

I had that same front (The GD Black Widow) when I owned the Civic. IMO, it's the best looking front out for the 7th gen. You order from Ground Designs? If so,did you have to wait for a long time to receive it,as I did? I had to wait on the freight company for about 2 weeks, as they didn't have any deliveries in my direction for those two weeks they stored it.

Ah yes, Restoration shop! They have great quality paint.... I just painted my whole car with Their Fire Red Pearl, the pearl really jumps off the car in the sunlight. Can't wait to see it when it's done.
