    Kinda new here

    ]I've been browsing around for like a month or so and decided to sign up like 2 weeks ago. I've always had a love for DA's and owned so many different honda's and decided it was time to buy another DA. I sold my ek hatch 2 months ago and bought a DA that my friend had sitting around.

    Here's what it looked like when i got it..........




    After a fresh coat of paint, i decided to paint it viper white with some blue pearl, white pearl and some artic ice mixed into the clear. Replaced the badges with honda badges, removed all the wipers, painted all the mouldings and I think thats it. You cant really notice any of the pearls ore the artic ice in the pictures. I didnt want it to look crazy so at certain angles in the sun you can notice it all. Heres the after pics............... O yeah I also put in some yellow fogs and 7000k lights.










    Enjoy and feedback is appreciated. Thanks

      Yea i kno its a little too much, its there because there's 2 holes in the moulding from someone else having a plate there. I plan on getting a plate relocation kit and putting a jdm vanity plate there.

          I really didnt know wat color rim ta do. I was thinking maybe something polished or silver. Maybe blk n red combo might look nice on there like you said.

            Looks really clean with the new paint. White is sexy. Would've been better if you didn't paint a part of the grill... kind of looks a bit odd.

                              If I'm not mistaken.. those are tuner lugs that you're using on your steelies correct? If so.. BAD idea.. change it back to oem lugs ASAP before the tuner lugs mess up your steelies mounting holes or worse.. unscrew themselves on the freeway!

                              Other than that.. fresh clean looking paint and welCUM!

                                        From what I can see, it looks like you just installed an HID kit and didn't to a retrofit? How is the cutoff? Did you fab any glare guards or anything?

                                            There not even hid's, i needed some headlight bulbs in a hurry and called my buddy down at A&A auto parts and he had some Nokya 7000k light bulbs and while I was there I picked up a set of the Nokya yellow foglights aswell.

                                              Thanks, its actually viper white. I was going to do championship white but it wasn't white enough for me.

                                                  That's the reason why I did the viper white, I spent weeks looking at different paint chips and paint books at work and decided on the viper white. I shot a test panel first to make sure it was bright enough. The color definetly stands out. I also added some white pearl, blue pearl and artic ice.
