    Everything went well putting most of it on today, except had to do a lil fabrication on the skirts and rear bumper, and then the hood ended up being the wrong one. I told them that to when I ordered it cause online it says 96-00, so when I called to order I told them it won't fit but they insisted it would so I ordered it, the hood won't close on the 2000 grill so I had to put back on the 98 grill and the old hood, hopefully they let me return it but I don't think they will cause I already drilled into the hood. I didn't put the wing on cause I gotta drill through the trunk so I'm gonna take that to a shop to do for me, but if I wake up early enough before I got to work tomorrow I'll take pics, even though it's multi colored it still looks clean now and slammes as hell. I'm gone definitely have to raise my coilovers a lot when I drop down to 15's

    Pics will be up tomorrow, it's all dirty though cause I was doing a lil engine work as well as the body work. The baby's doing fine eating as much as she can get. Might be a lil while before it's painted, since my boy is doing it that owes me a paint job and u know you know how people like to drag their ass when there's no money involved, But Hopefully by May.

    Are you planning on keeping the euro-style taillights, or changing them?
    If it were my car, I would change them to either smoke, or CF style.

    :thumbsup: get it painted!

    cf= just plain sexyness. the big wing looking thing is kinda detrimental to the appearance though bro. personally, i'd stay with the stock wing. just my .02 though.

    Yeah i'm changing them, same style cause I like the L.E.D style and unfortunately altezza is the only company that makes them for my car but on the plus side they do make them in the black housing and I think they do have cf also but I gotta check, also changing the headlights also still projectors but black housing, ya'll get the idea.:D Yeah soon as I get the right hood I'll get it painted,. unfortunately they sent the hood for a 96-98 civic, so I'm tryna convince them exchange even though I had already drilled into it, but now I'm thinking if they do take it back I'll see if I can get a different hood cause I couldn't get the one they sent to close and I'm thinking probably cause it's not for the civics with the dohc engines.

    Yea I came to that conclusion also after I got it, I would keep the stock wing but it's cracked due to me, my cousin and stupidity, lol. Originally ordered it cause it sat lower than the stock one and don't like the fact that when I look through my rearview mirror I'm looking between the trunk and bottom of the spoiler, but here's a pic of what it should look like when installed except mine will be black

    You can thank my mom for that, dressed me in LV since I was a baby and I grew with it, even my intials are LV, Liston Vanterpool :D
