Most of you already know me from the forum but I'll give a quick introduction so as not to bore you lol:sleep:. My name is Kevin from Vancouver Canada, earlier this year in January I was rear ended on the way to work and my previous car was totalled so I needed a new ride:eusa_dance:. In March I decided I was going to get an Si, I've always wanted an Si and I've been a fan of Honda for many years so it was an easy decision for me. I took delivery of my 2013 PMM Si sedan on May 17, I patiently waited 2 months for delivery cause my Si had to be factory ordered as no dealer had the color I wanted which was kinda okay with me cause than I knew I would be getting one fresh off the truck. She came delivered with 8KM/5Miles on the odometer.

I originally didn't bother starting any kind of build thread cause I had no plans to do anything to her I was just going to keep her stock, I loved her just the way she was. BUT since than I've done a "few" things here and there and I do have some BIGGER plans for her next year LOL. Also looking through many of the build threads here and seeing what people have done no matter how big or small has inspired me to start my own build thread so like they say "better late than never".
Most everything I've done from day one I've documented with pictures so I will start posting pictures over the next few days and weeks in a chronological timeline as to what I've done to date.

First thing I did was pick her up from the dealership hahaha. This is how she looked on day one.

Kids Play

Nothing glorious here but gotta take care of business first before having some fun. With two kids the first thing done to the car was Scotchgard all the seats and fabric including carpets. Then I put in seat protectors, then padding for the kids seat, and a tablet mount to keep the kids entertained.:)

Thanks man.
Rule #1 for the family is step in and out of the car no dragging. Rule #2 keep eating down to a minimum. #3 if they've walked in mud or dirt to clean their shoes before stepping in. #4 be careful opening and closing doors. They hate my rules but it has to be done or else all hell would break loose hehe.

Better being safe than sorry!

I don't race or really even speed but I do keep up with whatever the flow of traffic might be and sometimes it could be slightly over the speed limit so I didn't want to get nailed for a $200 speeding ticket going 3-4MPH over the speed limit.

Hence this a Beltronic RX65 radar detector. I've been using this for 6 months now and so far so good. Unlike the cheaper radar detectors there is very few false alarm. I know it should be mounted higher but I hate the cord hanging and flailing around. It works well enough where I have it mounted.

Just didn't grow on me:(

Next up was a rear window visor I ordered up from kplayground. I had it on for a few months but the look of it just didn't grow on me and also the corners were propping up as the 3M tape just wasn't holding the corners down so I ended up removing it altogether and has stayed off ever since. I'm not sure if I will install it again.:punch::shrug:

Wow, I didn't even know back seat protectors existed. I keep the passenger seat rolled all the way forward so my kid can't kick it but I still see her trying sometimes. I'm going to buy these now!

You can find those backseat protectors at of all places Walmart. They come in a package of 2 and they are pretty cheap you just have to know where to look just go to the kids section not the automotive section. Or else as others here have commented just have your kids take off their shoes lol.:laugh:

Stickers gotta have those stickers

For anybody wondering the Grafix expression stickers are good quality stickers. They look good and stay on through sun, rain and cold and oh of course +5HP too LOL.:biglaugh:

Form and Functionality

OEM window visors installed. Looks good and very useful. I researched quite a bit before I decided on the OEM ones. I like the way they look and how flush they sit.:D

Nice Plates

Did away with the dealer plate frames on the front and back. Front plate frame replaced with all black metal frame. Splurged and got a black metal frame etched with "Civic Si" for the back. Quality of the frame was much better than I expected and might consider getting the same frame for the front.:laugh:
