Cool 2002 Civic LX *FRESH PAINT* *2004 taillight mod* AFTER accident.

So yeah, you guys remember my original thread last year when i bought my 2002 Civic LX.

Well, 3 weeks ago I had an accident as you can see.






Being at "no-fault" their insurance sent me a check to cover ONLY the damage and ONLY paint the replaced parts, but having my car in the condition it was with all the dings and scratches, I decided to go ahead and have it re-painted completely. The shop did everything including the taillight mod.

Here are the results;











Thanks to a irresponsible driver this car came back to life! thank you! and also thank you for the 3 week car rental. Absolutely NOTHING came out of my pocket just so you guys know!

Do you have any suggestions for improving the look? Should I go with chrome door edge guards or just plain black? thanks in advance! also, will rain visor guards look nice or does it affect aerodynamics?

I think some all black rims would look sick on there. That chrome on there now takes away from it.

correct, people around here don't care much and mostly damages to the car in the past were from door slams left and right.
