    Re: Sil2DrV6's 2002 Accord Coupe EX-L V6 (56K)

    I dont see why shipping would be so much. Just bubble wrap the bulb itself and mail it in one of those envelopes with built in bubble wrap. Ill pm you my address. And yeah, i wished i lived near everyone haha.

    The cops are not cool with it. Already received 2 tickets for my headlights within this year.

    But ill look em up. If shipping do end up costing that much ill just buy a new pair.

    Well, bubble wrapping it in the envelope wasn't really practical.. It could break easily b/c there will be a lot of contacts to the bulb. It can't be shipped like LED bulbs, you know. So I figured just using the original case is the best shot.

    Here it is.

    I noticed that the plastic cover is not holding up anymore.

    Applied some electrical tapes for your sake.

    Notice the coating is wearing off. The filment isn't dead yet tho.

    In the original case.

    Wrapped it. And look what I found. A perfect box with some fillers. :)

    5.75 oz.

    This is probably the lightest & firmest packaging I think. Hopefully this will be less than $25 tho.

    Lmk your preferable postal service, and I'll ship it out to you.

    Got your PM.

    If it's under $25, I'll ship it and we'll figure out the total price and you can Paypal me later, once you receive it. And I will :GetMoney: How about that?

    2 tickets eh... You should always be home before the sunset!

    Hope this helps.

    Yeah GL with your experiment, Michael.

    Looking into redoing my window trim with PlastiDip again. How is yours holding up with washing and all of that?

    I finally finished shaving the front lip kit over the Labor Day wkend. Super x2 lazy here...


    Thanks, Daniel. :) I was lucky to have that shot w/ no cars around. (Actually there was one car by the intersection on the background, but I erased it for the hell of it lol. Can you tell?) I like their spoke rims, but yeah it would be nice if they make more mesh wheels as well.


    It has been a little over an year on mine, but it is surprisingly holding up quite well. (No such change since the last pic I posted on the DIY thread.)The only section being a little bit (tiny bit) damaged is where the edge of the window frame (rubber packing weather strip) meets the trim when closing the door, which I happened to discover that a few days ago. Idk if I said it on my DIY thread but there is a way to fix those kind of imperfections / damages, which is by using acetone to liquefy the section and filling out the spot. You can see many clips on Youtube w/ "Plastidip + fix" for that. ;) Now, it depends on how far you keep the can away from the trim, but 5~6 or maybe even 7 coats will be very strong imo. (I think I did 4~5 coats.) GL, and have fun. ;)

    I believe I am going to have to plasti dip my window trim. That just looks too good.

    Thanks, bud. Looking forward to seeing how your side mirrors get blacked out differently than mine. ;)

    It took me a little while to get back in the business... :coffee: Had to save up some fundings for other necessities, and the only effective way of accomplishing that asap was to stay away from the temptations (6GA)... But it's over, and my mod bug has FINALLY bit me after all. :)
