How's everyone? My name's Jordan. I was born in SoCal but lived most of my life in NC but now I'm back in SoCal. I've been a long time lurker on this site. So many posts here have helped me modify my car to my liking. From fixing a rattling exhaust, to wheel/tire fitment. Very informative posts here and a great community full of knowledgeable people. I want to say thanks and I'm not sure if this is the norm but here are some pictures of my FG4 transformation from stock.

2015 Civic Si Coupe. Stock all the way:

Found a twin at my buddy's house. At this point, I had installed my Invidia Q300 Full Exhaust System:

After installing my D2 Coilovers:

This is the last photo running on stock wheels:

Got my Enkei RSO5RR for a steal from a good friend of mine back in NC:

It has been a fun journey. I will still be working on this car but it's my daily so nothing too crazy for now. Thanks for taking the time to view my introduction post! You can follow me for my occasional car posts on Insta: @borinconvo

This one my latest setup. BUT not my hood yet. Just fitted.
MY buddy is giving to me if I can find him a Rallye Red 2014-1015 Civic coupe since he got ina wreck that killed his hood.
I will trade my Taffeta White hood for a direct swap.
or
I live in SoCal and need to find a professional painter to match the paint.
If anyone can custom mix for vinyl, that'd be a lot easier for me but I know that color is factory and rare. Will run a little much so I want to know the cheapest route to go about this. I love this hood so much on my setup

Sorry for the double post at the end. I can't delete. I tried. Mods please delete post #12
That said, Thanks for all my IG support and you guys are always great at my car mods.
Would like some opinions on my loo now.
And I need to pull my front camber out more so it pokes.

I really like your car with the oem hood, tbh. I think it looks cleaner but I'm a more oem+ type of person... and I don't live in SoCal so I'm sure the car scene there is different than the 4x4 land that I live in.

Overall great looking car! And welcome back to the forums :)

Haha thanks. I'm still on the fence about the hood. My buddy let me swap it for like 5 minutes to see what it looked like. I still have the original hood on. I like the aggressive look but I never liked vents on a hood unless it has a turbo or supercharger.

quoted for truth :)

QFT, havent heard that in a while. I'm kinda with dubbin on this one factory hood looks better imo. However, I think the vented hood works with the other ground effects you already have. I think vented would look better painted.

While don't like vented hoods, I do like the the way the Mugen hood vents on the last generation Civic. I'd definitely be copying that when I decide to get a CF hood. I will say the OP's hood blends pretty well with the front end setup.
