My first few mods!...

Hi,

Doing a few mods slowly but surely... so far ditched the 16" SE alloys for some 17" Type S ones - also got the Dark Chrome Sports grille and the Type S fog blanks (Do you think the silver ones work okay or I should have got black?? hmmm - what you think??)

Anyway here is a quick before and after



BEFORE...................... AND AFTER!

Think the mods look spot on so far mate, as for the fog blanks stick with them they look great, the silver on there is a nice contrast, goes with the chrome on the grille

Yeah the silver ties in with the bit on the grille,the alloys and even the door handles,black wouldnt really be noticeable,all good.

Thanks everyone I'm gonna keep going with the mods, I can see how it becomes addictive!

I'm doing internal mods next though - gonna sort out my speakers and may get an amp in there too.

I got the grille from cox motor parts...

Genuine Honda Civic Front Sports Grille [08F21SMG600C] - 81.51 : Cox Motor Parts Direct - Genuine Honda Brakes Clutches & Accessories

Couldn't recommend them any more they were great. Ordered on a Wednesday (pm) - got confirmation on the Thursday and arrived Friday morning! Only 82 now as well - bargain.

Ripped the skin off the top of my left hand removing the old one like but it was worth it to get shut of that stupid nostril grille!
