7.MIGHT VINYL WRAP THE WHOLE CAR MATTE BLACK IN SUMMER! (complete) changed my mind to matte white
7.Very lightly going to tint the tail lights, very light lol.
8.Want to install foglights (let me know if you have some for a 3 hole bumper coupe for a good price)

Thats it so far =)

Re: My 6th Gen Accord Coupe and future thoughts!

looks good, go for function and form type 1's for coilovers. The quality is great and they're fairly cheap. What'd you paint your stock rims with? I like the color alot.

Re: My 6th Gen Accord Coupe and future thoughts!

Re: My 6th Gen Accord Coupe and future thoughts!

Welcome to the site.

Enjoy.

As for your current/future mods, like what yo have done so far, next woudl be to lower it, forget the spoiler, and maybe swap to an 01-02 Coupe front bumper.

You seem handy with, so maybe find a complete OEM lip kit and mod the front lip to the 01-02 bumper.

Thanks for the suggestion on the coilovers ill definitely check them out! As far as the rims go i used this exact type of paint but in this picture this is clear coat, the colour i used was gun metal, ill post some picks of them with my center caps painted too, i just haven't washed my car due to a lot of snow lately.

Thats not me in the pic haha just a random one i got from google.

The Lip is an OEM replica, it looks identical to an OEM one and actually fits fantastically! no stretching needed when putting it on and it has properly placed pre drilled holes for the bolts. I got it from this site:
http://www.lips-kit.com/index.php?cPath=82
Although when it was shipped the people didn't handle it properly and i already signed the sheet saying it was ok before i opened it so i couldn't use the insurance, i had to fix it myself, but wasn't too bad =)

Thanks for the suggestions, i actually was considering replacing my bumper because i'm getting a lot of rock chips from the winter, so i might paint a new one myself and then clear vinyl wrap it so its protected.

I'm definitely going to lower my car this year after the winter. can't wait!

Re: My 6th Gen Accord Coupe and future thoughts!

Looks good so far. I also suggest skipping the spoiler. OEM spoiler or maybe even a little lip spoiler.

How's the F20?
