My FN2 from Milano Red to Championship White GP +Work Wheels

Hello, Im new to this site and a own a 2007 CTR.
Thank you for the warm welcome in the nooby section!

my Civic has gone through some changes and I want to show you the transformation

Complete stock when I bought in Jan. 15




First mod was to replace the foglights for this cf scoops



Some people thought ist was a good idea to scratch up both sides with a key...


When it came to repaint I decided to go for a full repaint in my favourite colour - Championship white.

A few weeks later I brougth the Hatch to my friends paint shop.






GP kit ordered at Honda Dealer







almost done...


Finished!!!

Lower part of the front grill has been painted black to match the inner part of the GP front.




Got me some Work Emotion XT7 8,5x18 ET32
Came with Tyres Kumho SPT 235/40



Changed Tyres for Bridgestone Potenza RE050a 225/40

Thank you!

Im not a fan of the Bra, or any Bra But it helped to protect the fresh paint in the first weeks.

@Civic_Outcast
I know the costs for a repaint at a regular paintshop. Of course my friend got paid, too because it is a LOT of work.

Engine bay is not painted, will do it myself in winter

Got me a set of oem Nissan 350z Rays forged wheels for quite cheap.
Size: 2x 8x18 et 30
2x 8,5x18 et 33
They are super light, only 8,x kg per rim.
Testfitted the 8x18 et30 on the rear.
Looking pretty good imo.
