    Alright one more pic of the lights. The courtesy lights were the easiest to do. And I had to pop open the trunk and go from the back to change the bulb out. Whoo! Such a simple mod and so cheap, but definitely worth it.

    I really dislike how the stock shift boot looks with the reflective plastic ring so I decided to buy a DC2 shift boot. I really hope it fits!

    Whoops, sorry I didn't see your post about how to get the license plate light out. I actually broke mine and had to order a new one; didn't see that you have to slide the whole cover to the right (or left, I don't remember) and it comes right out lol.

    Car is looking good, have you tried the integra boot yet? Ive been wanting to change my shift knob but like you are not fan of the chrome collar. I want to stick with a oem boot rather than aftermarket so if it fits that would be awesome.

    Haha thanks! I'm looking into getting a 99-00 SI OEM radio. I think the amber lights will match well with the cluster and climate control. I was thinking of going aftermarket, but I really like the way OEM Honda radios look.

    It's alright, I figured it out. Very different from my Integra and Corolla, thats why I was so confused at first.

    You are in luck! I just finished a few minutes ago and the boot looks great. Super simple process, sorry I didn't take step by step pics, but if you need help I can lend a hand. The only issue I have is that the boot might be a little too short, like it doesn't have enough slack when I shift through gears (especially 5th and reverse). If you can find a longer boot you're golden.

    Thank you! Nice, would definitely love to see your car. The grey interior is nice but sometimes I wish Honda made black interior for the sedans.

    Updates are going to slow down a bit guys. I really want to save up for a superb detailing job so I have to save all my paychecks, and we all know it’s easier said than done.

    I would've liked at least a heathered gray interior (gray with black) instead of the light, blue-ish quartz gray that mine has.
