back from the body shop new pics new toys!

so im not sure if many of you remember about 2 months ago i was involved in a 5 car pile up. well i finally took it in to get fixed and here she is! lets do a before after after photo real quick.

Before:



After the accident:




damage didnt look bad until itook stuff apart the core support was pushing back about an inch or so.

Back from the body shop looking purty!:








things that are different from the before to now.
jdm power folding mirrors
jdm ctr red h on a brand new ebay grille
lost the fog lights. they were ebay knock offs and were already messed up before the accident. gonna get some oem ones sometime
lost my 6k hid kit. one of the ballasts got destroyed in the accident
now im running a 10k xenon kit and i love it. but i may get another ballast and go back to 6k
no more blacked out headlights. i may black out another set but the oem chrome is kind of growing on me.
got the side skirts repainted the paint was cracking pretty badly on them.

thats it tell me what ya think!!!! i need to finish the rest of the body work now but at least everything lines up on the front and isnt all jacked up!

also the carbon fiber hood is fine ill probably put it back on in the spring thanks for looking!!!

Re: back from the body shop new pics new toys!

I say keep the lights chrome.
Get the OEM fogs.
Put the CF hood back on.
Tell us where you got the H and folding mirrors.
Good job on fixing it.
Maybe now you can loose the fat 5's and get a set of wheels.

Or not.

Re: back from the body shop new pics new toys!

thanks for all the compliments guys! now to all the questions

kevbotron:
yes i have a red h on the steering wheel the grille was the completion of the trifecta lol

latinem2: i may black out the new ones i may get another set and black them out and do a retrofit or i may just get some jdm headlights. since the chrome is really really growing on me

the fogs are messed up one of them is cracked but if i can find the rest of the harness id sell em for 20 plus shipping. if anyone is seriously interested

the red H i got offa ebay it came in a honda emblem package wit hthe oem part number or you can get it thru passwordjdm.com

the mirrors i got off a member on here. they used to be on falkens car.

as for the fat fives. i got a deal on em and until i find the right set of wheels ill be rocking them for awhile.

Mr.plenty: my car is actually an es2
em2 = dx lx hx ex coupe
es1= lx sedan
es2 = ex sedan

the way the emblem came it had sticky tape on the back of it i just pressed hard to the grille. did a few test fits before i pulled the stuff off to make it stick. made my mom and my girlfriend help me straighten it up.

as far as the k swap goes. its in the works. im going to finish up the suspension and brakes before anything else happens. this accident drained me lol

Re: back from the body shop new pics new toys!

Yeah, I remember that thread- looked pretty bad back then. But now its looking good man. I think you should stick with the stock headlings, looks better than the blacked out ones. Glad to see its back to good condition!
