This was my first project where i've done anything to a car myself. The most i've done beforehand is fit some wind deflectors on my old EP2 and then drive it to the bodyshop for them to get their hands dirty.

Thanks to the lockdown, I had to take matters into my own hands. The day before lockdown happened, I took the car to a garage specialising in exhaust systems, they performed a backbox delete with two custom pipes from the middle pipe - this is the only modification I paid someone to carry out for me.

Modifications I managed to do myself:
  • K&N 57i Induction Kit
  • Civic Type R spoiler
  • Facelifted Grille w/ red H badge & smoked headlights
  • Painted the door handles and fuel filler cap in matte black
  • Painted the brake calipers red
  • Painted the wheels gloss black (I wanted to change them, this is on the cards but if you've read my other posts, it's been a headache so far, mostly me being a dumbass so I just decided to paint these ones instead!)
  • Team HEKO wind deflectors
  • Tinted the centre rear perspex panel
  • Painted the skirts, arches, rear & front splitter in black
  • Metal/3D number plates (sorry you can't see it on here though!)
  • JVC Head unit & FLI FT12A 1200W Subwoofer
One day i'm finally going to get some real alloys sorted out for myself!

I know the paintwork might not be perfect, but this was my first project and i'm pretty happy with how she's looking.

I want to thank this forum immensely for their help - lots of posts and questions on here that people had already asked gave me the relevant answers, so I wanted to share the before and afters with you.
