    Thanks guys yeah really i'm not into the whole lip JDM faze going around not that i dislike it's not me , the only item i like are the eg6 corners :) but other then that i want to keep it really clean and oem look wise and work on the interior comforts and handling more .
    And lots of wrench time was involve but time in general isn't on my side considering i have a wife and son and responsibilities that comes first so i tried to give every free time i had to this project i think it turned out really well .
    Paint job i did it myself at my family owned body shop this is my very first attempt to paint a car i had lots of learning to do and mistakes to correct before it finally came out like this .
    My future plans are to stick with Buddy Club parts after i piece every Buddy Club part they make for my year of car i will finally say im done with the project and eventually sell it down the road .
    Here are some updates i recently added to my coupe .

    Whatever you do, dont put the password sticker on your car. Thats just inviting someone to steal it. Right now it just looks like a super well care for stock civic. I'd keep it that way as much as possible.

    wow. impressive. I love to see resto sleepers. Especially when both interior and exterior look like it rolled off the car lot

    good job man!
