Exclamation

if it would look totally out of place, I'd say, leave it for the Type R, but after seeing these pictures, I can't help but conclude, it looks at least just as good as with the stock logo, imo, better.





I personally wont do it yet as long as my Civic isn't lowered, because with the stock suspension, it would look a little bit "out of place", imo.


Anyway, my first exterior mod will be a relatively cheap mod, wich Honda should have done in the first place, black out the rear light housing...it just looks unfinished now.

if you are talking about the badges, yes, especially the one on the front!

The logo rest seems to stick on a 'floating' piece, so when you press in the new badge, I seem to have the impression I couldn't press it all the way in so that the sticky part makes contact...
As if its only been held into place by the 2 tabs.
Pressing too hard makes me scared to break the floating piece some how...

As of now, not sure its installed correctly.

Rear also seems its not fully making contact but at least you can push that sucker down with all your force

removed the sticky tape all at once at the rear, dremeled away the tabs and cut away some plastic material so it sits flush to the trunk

than used Sugru as a sticky compount

Never sat as snug
