Ok..so im a little stuck on my build at the moment... but I came up with what I want... Now just help me choose a couple things im still undecided

-jdm badge--definately
-Bug deflector- I like it (when it becomes part of the final product)
-ebay front lip- cant decide on the paint scheme...
1. glossy black paint..
2. paint it red plastidip the bottom on the sides
3. Paint it black and red
4. just all red
-Hood
1. Leave red?
2. Plastidip black + gloss plastidip
3. vinyl wrap in glossy black
* will not paint my hood or buy a carbonfiber one or buy an extra and paint it.
-Roof
1. Viny glossy black? or Leave red?


Please do not bash my ideas, if you do not like any of them do not post anything*****i will ban you!
If you like one more than the other then let me know which one... just need help clarifying some things.

Black roof looks nice over the red... Keep bug deflector and black chin spoiler.... How about rear diffuser?

but the front lip is my main concern...im leaning towards painting it all red and then plastidipping the bottom side edges like on pic one..what about the rear diffuser? Thats already black..?

no, not what's available right now on the market... for some reason, they just look off...
I agree with you 100% on the lips availble being horrible choices... but search the forum i been waiting for an hfp release for over a year posting constantly about it... kinda funny if you go back and search it you see people saying ohh i tallked to my dealer he said in dec of 2011 hahaha clearly not... its obviously not gonna happen now...and looking at the 13 doubt theyll fit if they decide to make one...

i just think the bottom of that front bumper leaves something to be desired...thats why i thought of the paint scheme to kinda make it look like the hfp lips kindaaa, makes it look more agressive!

Deflector is for looks nothing else...
I would never put clear bra on any of my cars... lol reminds me of my mom and grandma with plastic over their couches...lmao it just doesnt look good... (Its not clear!!! LOL..when its new you can tell obviously tell its their when it ages and gets dirty the edgesss of the bra get like dark dirtty and it just looks awful... my moms couches are still brand new after like ten years... but i hate sitting on themm.. specially in shorts ...sticky as hell lol

I use the oem bra only for the hood, works well for me and looks good black on black.

I've always been a clean car person... And with regular maintenance, never have any issues.. My 99 si (black) had bra, and after 3 years of nasty New England weather... No fade line... Just took care of it.. Everybody has personal preferences in mods... With all the highway mileage I do, IMO, the bra is most effective. For others may be clear bra or deflector... With your car (civicmx) I think the deflector looks best..
