    so im just looking for every ones opinion on the look i have for my car. i cant seem to find any pics so ill just describe it the best i can. im thinking about making the body completley stock sept being lowered and really dark tint, to hide the roll cage. also shave the door handels and the bumper things that are on the door. a smaller and not so noticable exhaust. side mount intercooler and if possible a silent BOV.

    then for the paint job i was thinking a really dark really glossy matallic red

    these are the rims i have on it now i was thinking about having them redone and the lip done red

    also i forgot to mention the car is a 4 door so that will add even more to the sleeper effect

    I think your plans sound good. I'm not sure on the red lip though, I'd probably just leave it polished.

    if you want sleep, don't paint anything. put some stock civic wheels on it and paint it an oem color. once it's custom on the outside, people assume it's custom on the inside.

    I think that's a cool idea. Honestly I'm not really a big fan of the rims you posted up. I like the ones that are currently on the car much better.

    sleeper-all performance
    anything done to the car that is noticeable will make them assume more is done to the car...
    but your idea is still sick
