Painted grey Bumper finish to body color

Hi Guys,
I Wanted to paint the Grey Finish on the bumpers to match the Civic color and when i saw the Type R i knew that i would look ok...
I want to share the pictures with you so you judge for yourself...
the wheels are from my S2000 and this is my moms car.
Only the Exhaust inserts are left to be bought and i think it will look even cooler.
but that in near future..If somebody sells them cheap i am open to buy them.,..
Enjoy

I'm going to guess that on Macedonian roads even those high wall 16"ers might be a bit harsh!

Well thease wheels look a lot Bigger than the OEM 16" wheels...
Its because thease have Thinner spokes and go to the edge of the rim...
My first concern when doing this was that the paint job will make the wheels look even smaller .... but thats it...
Anyway the tires are the same as oem but only the rear are Fatter ones 225/50-16....
Here are my wheels and i had them on the civic also to see how they look there...they look Like they were OEM Size on the Civic...and it looks that the 18" are just right for this car...
Will upload some more pictures of the car in daylight setting...
Cheers

Colour coding the silver makes it look so much better. I like.

Colour coding really does improve the look doesn't it! I wonder if Honda will include this when the Civic has a facelift?

Doubt it. That's reserved for the Type R identity
