You know, I usually don't like that grill but I like it on your car. Nice!

I'm going with Panda on my Crystal white pearl 3, but my stickers are lime green and white.

Sweet color combo
This! And you've kept it minimal too, which I like. Was going to suggest painting calipers green but noticed in your list they already are. Didn't take notice of them in any of your pics.

Thanks for all of the comments guys! I definitely didn't want to go overkill with the green, which is also why my sticker stack on the front windshield had finally become too much for me. I have since removed it and will get pictures up as soon as I get my camera back.

Ctt3P5- I will be sure to get a picture of the green calipers too!

As far as green wheels go, it's something I've been thinking about for a long time. I might eventually bite the bullet and do it one day, but for right now I'm pretty content with how it is right now :p

We should get something for you to seal off the lower edge of the grill. Better drag coefficient too if you block off unnecessary openings while you're at it. :yes:

i was just looking at them on ebay. i had a precut lamin-x for my old civic and it didnt conform to the lines all that well. and the hatch tails are about the same if not worse.

looks like spray on is my best bet.

Yeah, spray would be the best or a vinyl tint roll so that you have plenty of extra to cut away and what not.

Installed new Spark plugs (way past due, I'm at 73,200 miles) as well as finally replaced the OEM battery to an Optima Yellow Top (D35) and replaced my front brake pads with HAWK's

My car feels so healthy now, especially with that spark plug change!


currently working on making a custom shift knob out of the tiny glass monster bottles you see at the gas station haha

Turning this into a shift knob today



Me and my friend tried it last week but it shattered when the drill finally went through the glass from the drill hitting it too hard :/

getting a glass drilling bit today so it is easier.

I didn't realize it the first time either, but it says M3 on it. It's perfect! LOL
