Re: RedRyder's '99 Accord EXV6 Coupe

I say do the retrofit and do the red housing when you do it. And as far the fogs go, don't bother with film. If you want a light blue tint just go with some 5000K HID's. Other than that you're on the right track.

I was thinking of putting a light blue film on the fogs more for the look during day kinda like what people do with yello. I do plan on putting whiter bulbs in though too. Thanks for the comments!

looking good Chris.

Thanks Alan. It'll look even better with those custom vinyls on the calipers!

Yes sir I am. I have a set of Koni Yellows and Eibach Pro's sitting in my apartment just waiting to get put on. Starting with a slight drop at first, see how it looks.

looks nice man

Thanks a lot, much appreciated!

Re: RedRyder's '99 Accord EXV6 Coupe

Clean looking ride. I like the v6 emblem in the grill since it's red. Coordination is always good.

As for the redhousing, I would say yeah, as well, if my car was a different colour, I would have done it as well. It's been done on a red Coupe already, but it's pretty rare to see a USDM Accord with that type of custom painted headlight housing, so I would say go for it.
