My Black Beauty

Finally after ages finally managed to put all the jigsaw pieces together and complete the 5dr conversion and walk on some alloys. All I can says is what a transformation!

Before:


After a good polish and wax:












Just want to says thanks to HITCH2320 for helping me out with regards to the alloys. I almost forgot to put these bad boys on as well:





Overall I'm really happy with the final look. The question is what do I do now?

Fair one! They are nice! Guess just do the subtle things. Maybe some engine bay mods, carbon dip a few things, change nut colours etc, but looks smashing either way mate!

silver speakers rings would be a nice touch at interior...

super car you have, neat and cool, the best a 5d can get...

except if you had beige interior, then it would have been the perfect 5d in my opinion...

Cheers mate, might well give the speaker rings a go still thinking about wind deflectors as well.

To be honest I didn't know Honda did beige interior for the civic, I do love my black leathers though, each to their own I guess

Yeah thinking of getting the deflectors mate, don't know about lowering it, as you know the roads around Birmingham aren't exactly to die for with all the speed bumps and pot holes

Having bought a black 2008 ES a couple of weeks ago, this is exactly what I want to do to it (although I would want to do the stealth thing with polished black alloys). Looks fantastic! Loving my car so far, but seeing stuff like this makes me sad to see all my plastic trim and little plastic rims

Looks great mate, thanks for the pic of the gap fill, pretty similar to mine , I'm just missing the 18 inchers and the clear rears, add some spacers 15mm front and 20mm rear, they help looks and handling
