Sorry, Photobucket is :facepalm: .... Pics will be up shortly.

NEWEST PICTURES ADDED AT THE END :)


Please no one get Offended.... But i get PM's Every day with the Same questions so i will answer them all on here...
Let me tell you, Almost EVERYTHING on my car i searched for myself; Google, 8thcivic, Ebay, just look around, you will find good deals if you keep your eyes open..

1. What Kind of Splitters/Winglets are on your car and where did you get them?
-I have the DC2 ARC Magic Winglets
ARC Carnards: Evasive Motorsports | PH: 626.336.3400 Mon-Fri, 9am-6pm PST

2. How did you get the R18 Emblem and where?
-I made it myself. You need the Si Grille, R 1 8 Emblems, sand paper, black spray paint. First you take off the Black piece that is held on by two screws(on the back side of the grille). Then you take off the red "Si" off that small black piece of plastic. Then you sand down that black plastic. Next once sanded down, You repaint it black. The R 1 8 badges you bought go on that black piece you sanded down. This is up to you, You can either use Double Sided Sticky tape 3mm or use some sort of Glue. then let that dry and then screw back on that piece and BAM, your done. lol Here is the website I got my letters from, Once again i went to Google and typed in "Custom Chrome Letters and Numbers" and this popped up....
Chrome Letters & Numbers Style 2 - Italic - 1.2 - Chrome Auto Emblems

3. How did you made your interior Black?
Well Half of the parts i replaced with Si panels/parts(Door panels, center console, back panels). Basically everything but the dash was replaced. The dash was painted with DUPLICOLOR Fabric and Vinyl Spray paint. I got the Flat black but thats all based on YOUR OWN preference. This you can get at almost any Advance Auto, Pep Boys, Discount Auto etc.
Dupli-Color High Performance Vinyl & Fabric Spray - DUPHVP1series

4. What Turbo kit is that?
The Turbo kit i have on my car is the AJP V-Band Kit. I am currently the only one with this set-up making 245 whp. 205 tq at 8.5 psi. I daily drive it and drive it pretty hard. MY CAR IS THE TEST CAR (RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT). It is NOT yet on the market, It's still in testing. We want to make Tuning easy for the Customers so any shop can tune it. We have had no leaks, no burning oil and no smoking. The car drives JUST like it came from the Factory(STOCK), No bogging what-so-ever. I can not release how this will be tuned yet until we are 100% sure about EVERYTHING. Thank you for understanding. I do NOT have a date for when it will be released.

5. What Projectors/ Shrouds did you use for your Headlights?
Urban Mindz helped me make my Retros. I will be making my own set shortly. We used the TSX Projectors and the Apollo Shroud. I got the TSX projectors on 8th Civic used, and the Shroud also on 8thcivic but new.

^Of course, lol, but I figure Jaeson's already got me on the "To Kill" list for borrowing his Florida 8th Gen Sticker size, so I figured I'd ask before I ran into you guys tomorrow, lol.
