Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

I considered blacking out my interior too, but it's very expensive and complicated. I have the tan/brown combo which is disgusting in my opinion... (The tan is okay, but the brown doesn't amke any sense)
Dying the interior black is a painstaking process and costs a lot, and replaceing everythign with another EM2 interior is no walk in the park either. It takes extreme dedication and professional appolstery work to accomplish that task. I'd even love to switch my dash from brown to black if possibe, but there's a lot of deconstruction involved.

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

Black wheels with the color just doesn't agree with me Blacked out tails look like crap, no matter what car they are on. I hate the "murdered out" crap, just my opinion.

Black headlights normally look good because they bring some contrast out. So I like the headlights and fogs.

If you were to do black interior, finding a parts car would be best and not dying anything.

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

Or just find someone who wants a tan interior and trade... lol
might be going to an event called cars and coffee saturday, if my girl can come with me.. lol, its like an hour away from me, supposed to be lamborghinis, ferraris, and all sorts of mess like that, nice to look at when you live in north carolina... only things i ever see like that are MAYBE around VIR (virginia international raceway) considering I live so close to it.

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

If you find someone who does, ask them if they want 2 tan interiors!
Y'know... just in case they need an extra...

At some point i think I'd rather drive in a lawn chair on bare steel flooring than look at my puke brown/tan combo anymore

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

I'd be happy to take the stock wheels off your hands, lol.

I like the headlights, where did you get them? I'm over refinishing mine every year and might just buy new ones and have em clear coated.

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

I was looking at a white EM2 when I was looking for a car. But I couldn't find one with black interior. That tan is such a combo breaker for me lol. I love that blue and I also love white, but both came with that dreaded tan interior.

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

At least I've got nice dark window tint to hide the interior color from outside so it doesn't clash with the blue so bad...
And for the right price, I'd be willing to give up my EX SE/Acura EL 15-spoke rims to a happy new owner. There's gotta be someone who wnats 'em

Quick question about the lip... it just mounts up to those little holes under the front bumper, right? With little pins to hold it on?

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

also ive seen in it on this color and i liked the look of it but a black gas cap cover looks cool and if you have some cash maybe a carbon fiber vinyl wrap of the hood roof trunk and maybe wing i might do it to my car you can get the wrap off ebay for relatively cheap and do you have any work under the hood? pics of the bay!

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

You shouldn't need a spring compressor if you're careful. Stand on the spring with one foot or have someone else do this while you slowly remove the cap nut. It also helps to do this in grass or butted up against a brick wall to add resistance and keep the spring from blowing parts all over the place...

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

Nah, I'm pretty sane. This is a good DIY that show how you can do it safely:
https://www.civicforums.com/forums/4...fo-pics-9.html

I have an ebay exhaust, a Spec-D Tuning catback. Its cheap ($120) and easy to install. Sounds nice and deep! It drones a bit going up hills, but otherwise it is actually failry quiet. It's silent when cruising along, and loud when you floor it

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

i have a WONDERFUL local exhaust shop, that did what i have now, which i put my header on myself, still have stock downpipe and cat, but 2.5" pipe from cat to the back of the car with a one chamber muffler with a 4 inch tip the reason he is so wonderful.. is because he cut the pipe off the 3 bolt flange and welded the new piece onto the new pipe so i can take off what he did and put that kit on and have 2 different bolt on exhausts, one made for it, and the other custom lol, but my car is HELLA loud... fairly quiet just cruising.. but when i get into it jesus
that white truck i used to have was worse.. lol, it had a stock exhaust manifold, put a cherry bomb where the cat Used to be and had 3 inch pipe going into a one chamber muffler, with dual 3 inch pipes running into two 5" stainless diesel truck tips, one coming out behind each rear tire, thing sounded NASTY for a 4cyl toyota haha, alot of people thought it was a v6 xD
but with a honda... theyre annoying when loud haha

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

I don't know if it's just the effect of forced perspective or 7th Gen Civics are actually much smaller than Focuses. That's a good sign. Small cars are so much better!

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

When you installed the lip, did you remove the thin rubber strip from the bumper? Or does the lip sit in front of that? To me it seems like the lip would stick out too much if it goes in front of the rubber trim.

I already asked TFMEX the same question, but his rubber piece had already broken off...

Re: Just got into the car game with the Vic

That sucks about the lights Here in Nebraska, cops love to see HIDs, hahaha

And thanks a bunch. I was probably going to remove the rubber piece anyways, but I just wanted to make sure. I'm probably also going to spray ArmorAll protectant on the lip to make it appear darker and shinier black.
