Looks good! Kona is a cool color. Why the hood spacer though?

Thanks!
I used hood spacers To clear my Sri since it sits up kind of high and while driving the cooler air is rushing through the engine bay... Well theoretically lol.

I like the boot on the shifter, just gotta change the knob now :p !

I definitely want to do that, although it was a small safety issue.
I changed the knob in my last auto and I had to disengage the solenoid that clicks when the brakes are applied and the rod going down the shaft that was operated by the push button so I'd be able to shift.

Put a boot on the shifter.
That looks sick! Where did you get the boot from? How hard was the install? I'd be very interested in doing this

It was just a cheap one from autozone I believe.
Wasn't too hard to install just have to take apart the center console and it's pretty simple from there, just stretch it over the plastic part that displays the gears and reinstall the center console and kind of hammer it down around the shifter with your fist since it'll be a tight fit.
Eventually I'll try to take apart the shift knob and replace it with a nicer knob, ill make a guide on that if you're interested lol.

What is that engine cover?!? Is that only on the LX?

After searching the interwebz it looks like a 2013 R18 change. Weird. Weight saving??

It's the stock engine cover my lx came with just painted, not sure about other 1.8 models.
I do believe the 2012 and 2013 engine covers were different.

I don't really like the one on the coupes and the '12, it's got too much going on. But this one looks short like it's missing parts. Interesting that they changed it tho.
