Dark Civic Executive

Hi all
I recently bought black honda civic, already did some changes so tell me what you think, all suggestions are welcome.

This is the original as I bought it:



So here are things I did so far on the car:

1.Painted rims to mat black


2.On front grill I've put mat black folie


3.Painted caps of rims to black/red


4.Tinted rear lights to 35% and remove plate frame (now its just sticked)


5.Put shark antenna and mat black folie on gas tank


6.On front grill is 35% black folie, also on fog lamps


7.Lower plastic frame restored with black



So here are some things that I still want to do and my questions:

1.I am thinking of painting rims to regular glossy black, i painted this one in mat black and then one layer of no paint for protection but they turned out somehow grayish or dirty black what do you think
2.Will put red sticker around edge of the rims
3.front grill, mat black didn't go so well with the rest of the car so now I am thinking of putting darker folie then 35% or glossy black, I would like that one from type r/s but the cheapest is around 150eur so not at the moment
4.what should I do with door handles, I want them black, also folie or?
5.Back lights, it is impossible to stick folie on light that are aside they are to much sticked out so they are normal now and looks strange compared to back lights. Also this folie is not perfect you can see small bubles and something like scratches. I heard there are sprays for lights timing, but my question is can you later take it off?
6.I wanted to darken fog lights with folie but I am not so pleased, main lights are xenon and now this one looks grayish yellow
7.will tint back and back/side windows

7.will tint back and back/side windows

1. Go through the painting stages properly. As many layers of primer, then base coat, then clear coat as you can.

4. Take them off and spray them

5. If your talking about plastidip then yes, you just spray it on then it peels off as a film later when you want it removed

7. Most people don't tint the bottom window, it's hard to do as its plastic and hard to get to

matt grill is gone, now is this transparent folie, but just ordered glossy black folie so will see how will that look

regarding door handles, saw the tutorial you have to open whole doors, think I can spray them while they are on, just to protect the surrounding so will try like that

plasti dip, isn't that non transparent?
