Was just replying someone from the old thread, lol. I guess I'll post my reply here instead XD

Thanks guys :) It came out horrible though, so I'm deciding if I should get a professional to redo it for me or try my luck with a higher quality wrap. :S Sigh lol

@asimodou If you do decide to wrap your roof lmk and I'll give you some tips so you don't do the same mistakes I did lol. Oh and definitely get a higher quality vinyl if you plan on wrapping big parts like the roof, it's worth the extra $.
Luckily autocityimports hooked me up with this roof wrap at a crazy price so I'm not losing too much if I redo my roof again. Definitely have to learn from mistakes and by trial and error with this kind of stuff, which sucks tbh lol :(

Learning from your mistakes is how life works but in the end it'll be worth it!
Hard to tell from the pics but I assume its gloss? I hope so...imo matte wouldn't look nearly as good.

Haha thanks - all i really want to do is wrap my interior -> wrap all the csx-s parts with cf wrap but then its kinda expensive.. if you're looking to redo it maybe give these guys a go? it looks like they did a pretty good job on the other cars

Haha yeah, hopefully if I redo it then there won't be anymore mistakes :) That's true. Yup I got gloss black, I'm not a big fan of any matte colors except for white. I thought it would of looked more like a painted roof but it's not really glossy enough :\ Thinking of swapping my rear center piece of my spoiler for a carbon fiber one so it'll look a bit better with the roof as well, I picked the wrong paint for that part of the wing earlier so it turned out more of a matte black w/ sparkles rather than gloss :(

Oh hey you have a csx-s? :D Nice. Thanks for the recommendation, I think they did a good job as well on their wraps. One of the people there made a comment about my hybrid though that I'm not too happy about :cornmad: so I'm not too sure.. LOL. Not necessarily taking the comment to heart, and I have my "I<3Haters" sticker for a reason but still, lol
I hear they're pretty good too..
Atleast you attempted it though Lyfe, not many would even bother!
Lol I'm learning a lot from this car :)


If onlyyyyy the rear wasn't so insanely wrinkled :( I'd keep it even with the other minor imperfections. Luckily you can't really see it too clearly in this picture :shady:

^ooo nice ride, i have the same kit as you except type-r sideskirts and my wing is.. i donno what brand it is LOL, but it sticks out more and its 1 solid piece (1color)

but i don't really like the negative camber going on - never have and never will (no offence!)

btw- what size are your wheels?

Roof looks good, I paid someone to do mine as I do not have the patience to do it myself. Took my friend 4 hours to do it, still debating on doing my trunk.

I've seen matte blue and red that I thought looked pretty good.
Is your hood cf or painted black? I'd keep it consistent myself

That's unfortunate, everyone is entitled to their own opinion but everyone should also mod their car to their own desires and not others.


Thanks :) my wheels are 17x9 +45 w/ 5mm spacers, and I dont have negative camber in the rear atm so no offense taken lol :p

You're lowered so unless you got an alignment to make the camber 0 it'll be slightly negative I think. Pretty sure even the stock alignment is about -1 camber in the rear. But yea I don't like the excessive negative camber stuff

Lyfe if you add negative camber, be careful of the clearance on the inside of the tire with your coils. Very tight fitment... Which is why i got rid of them lol

Anyway, new mod installed today on my CSX, FD2 rear bumper. Been holding off for two years for this, pretty happy

17x9+45 nice haha, so wide! I ordered my wheels at 18 x 8.5+38, i didn't wanna mess with spacer stuff - might as well get it right on the first time haha xD but our offset choices are basically the same... I don't really like the lowered look, I think I will though by just one or 1.5 inches, not much but just a little....

I have negative camber all around due to my silly 19's, thank fully no rubbing. I was going to get new wheels for this spring but the only thing I am gonna do to my car is upgrade the brakes.

Hm I haven't seen a matte blue one before, actually I haven't seen matte blue vinyl at all lol I should go check it out :p My hood is carbon fiber, but I've been wanting to paint it white for a long time now :( Just can't justify the few bills it cost to paint it. Ohh right, I meant that as in I don't have sliders or camber arms so my neg camber isn't like those hellaflush guys. Actually I think my camber is around -1.7 ish, haven't gotten an alignment yet so I don't know the exact number. I don't like excessive neg camber either, and I'm not rubbing a lot right now or planning to go any lower so I don't plan on getting anymore neg camber :)

Ahh okay, thanks for the heads up smk :) Grats on the fd2 rear! Is it oem or replica?

Yeah it sucks to have to get spacers :| Lol, thankfully I didn't need the expensive ones with new studs or else that would of cost a lot

Oh and I'm pretty pissed as well.. the paint on my front lip is starting to peel really easily. I didn't notice until a friend pointed it out, and I can't believe it. It doesn't look like they used primer on my front lip when painting -_-

Didn't even sand it down or anything... just paints right on top of it. Wtf? I'm going to take it back to that shop later and ask them why they didn't even prep it and just sprayed the paint right on... Now that one side is peeled up a bit it's just a matter of time before it spread :| Sigh
