Re: Enigmatic jc's 05 sedan

I just don't see the appeal of an EL rear-end.

Get yourself a JDM sedan rear end and then we're talkin'

EDIT: oops, I was thinking of the JDM 8th gen. The 7th gen is virtually identical, lol

idk i guess i like how the lights go all the way to the rear license plate and how the reverse light is a circle...just comes down to personal preference i guess

anyways, krud, can you use your photoshop "skills" to make my car have some white rims with the current rims i have now? just use one of the side views i have posted...thanks lol

EL rear ends on ES are sexy.

FD Rear ends on a FA are panty dropping.

I like how EL rears look, more aggressive.

Re: Enigmatic jc's 05 sedan

Don't even need to do a photoshop to prove that white wheels on a black car are drop-dead gorgeous

What rims do you have in mind? Painting the same ones?

Not sure it would look good with the chrome ring. I'd do the whole rim white.
And i guarantee it will look great. My photoshop skills are not good enough to change black to white. The only way I can do that is to find an image of your wheel type that is already white or a light color close to it.

Unique, yeah... but the Civic's trunk looks better IMO.
Mixing around the spoilers isn't a bad idea though. I'm sure you could get something interesting out of that.
Simply because it looks like a 18yr old's car instead of grampa's hand-me-down.
The tails are way more aggressive on the EL.
I'd do it if I had an ES. Even if I had to order it from Canada.

Just something you don't see often.

Re: Enigmatic jc's 05 sedan

It would totally be cool and unique, no problem with that.
Just not a big enough cosmetic difference to justify the cost of a new trunk shipped from Canada, lol. It would look better if the lights were a bit thinner. It reminds me too much of an Accord in the rear.

Re: Enigmatic jc's 05 sedan

Pretty sure it wouldnt be too hard, perhaps splicing into the wiring, and hooking it up to an ebay foglight switch.

Re: Enigmatic jc's 05 sedan

If you got those fogs of ebay, you're gonna have a hard time, trust me.

I paid my experienced body shop / mechanic neighbor to install mine and he was baffled by how the ebay kit was wired. Eventually he figured it out, giving them a separate line and fuse from the headlights.

The hardest part though, is tearing apart your car just so you can run a little switch into your dash. I took the easy route and installed my own switch in a removable panel under the steering column.

You're the second person I've seen who's had a problem with the fog light wiring...it must be a specific kit or something, cause my ebay fogs were simple...plug constant power into the existing socket in the fuse box, plug switched power into the existing fuse box, put the OEM style switch in the existing location, run power through the firewall, and ground the lights to the body. The hardest part for me was cutting the holes and mounting the lights, the rest took me about 30 min.

Re: Enigmatic jc's 05 sedan

cool concept on the arm rest. Never considered that to match the rsx seats. That lip is actually real sharp. I kind of like it more on this model than my 08.
