Thanks, check out post #4 of this thread, shows you the pieces that were cut

To fill the void, we screwed in some black gutter guard (available at your hardware store of choice for under $5)

Re: sonni_kuba 2001 'Mugen' J32A2/6MT Accord

Tried out a few different colors via photoshop ...

Here's the original



The plan was to repaint to a darker space gray, with a black hood, black roof, black horizontal portion of wing



Then, while looking at the original NSX in Formula Red, decided to give it a shot,



Was pleasantly surprised ...

The only problem is that apparently it costs more to repaint in red

Speaking of a darker gray, I saw a Dodge Caravan(newer/newest model) that was a very nice shade of gunmetal metallic.

Looking up the colours, I think it was, Granite Crystal Metallic Clearcoat or Maximum Steel Metallic Clearcoat

If you have an iPhone try and app called "color effects-splash" it's the best and easiest app for color changes. Personally I like the color you have now better than the others.

Actually, pretty much decided on going with the Formula Red and a carbon fiber hood. So much for the sleeper look

Anyways, talking to a few different body shops to see who can do the fender flare molding, and repaint at a decent price. The place that did the bumpers and spoiler is on the pricey side.

All of the above except the engine bit. Planning on getting some serious engine work done after the repaint, will have the engine bay sprayed at that time.

Problem is I'm crazy *** broke at the moment so will probably have to wait till the 2015/2016 winter session to be able to do it right. Also have to coordinate the sale of the mugen rims before that time too.

Snapped up some pictures to showcase the 1) lower stance, 2) Accord badge on the grill, 3) the blacked out window trim.

Thanks for the kind words
Let me be perfectly honest, driving that low is a pain in the Nicky Minaj
There are some older parts of Toronto that I would never drive in her.
But, at the end of the day it's worth it
