    Picked these up yesterday for a pretty good price. Going to throw them in the washer then put them in the car.


    Also, going to purchase a replica of everyone's favorite GReddy lip and try to have a urethane mold made so there won't be any "shattering" incidents.

    Edit: Almost forgot, going to have a chipped ECU soon as well.

      So the night I pick up a megan strut bar and another alarm system that has the features i want, my rear window visor gets stolen off my car. Luckily they didn't get anything else, but still, damn.

          Well, new locking lugs (GReddy) and a new alarm system are on their way as well as my GReddy lip. Looking forward to everything getting here so I can get it all buttoned up and knocked out. Rims next then I'll probably look into side skirts.

            A little update. Received my chipped P06 (courtesy of tn_accords) and went ahead and started part of the install for the lip. I'll probably paint it tomorrow when there's daylight and get it installed.

                Just wanted to pop in and say that I really like your consistency. I know ll them GReddy parts weren't easy to get a hold of. Great work.

                    Honestly, the pictures I have don't do it any justice at all. I'm not saying it's the best part, but I think it came out pretty well for what it is.

                    The oil cap was definitely the hardest thing to find. There's more goodies on the way.

                    Thanks man. Hopefully I'll get it out to a meet soon (once I get my license back).

                    Here's some pictures of the work I did today:
                    First test fit.

                    The differences between the Prelude and the Accord bumpers are pretty much limited to the length. Curves are very close.

                    This makes the car look so much more aggressive. Maybe an eighth of an inch lower than a Legend lip.


                    Whenever the weather warms up it'll be paint time. Might go so far as to get a urethane version made but I'm not sure on that yet. Stay tuned.

                      After looking through ya pages again, our cars have a lot in common (seats, HIDs, H22, stance). Loving the lip you got there, how are you liking the seats?

                        love the new lip, is it from a 97-01 prelude ? Keep up the good work

                            I agree, especially after seeing that I wasn't the only one to put Accord rails on the seats to fit them. I love the seats. They hug you and keep you planted as opposed to the Accord seats. They make the car feel a little roomier too.

                            It is indeed from a Prelude. Not the first one to run it, but it's been my favorite lip for a while now.

                                Thanks Richie.

                                So I attempted to paint the lip today and it fisheyed in a few places. Not going to lie, I'm a little disappointed but I suppose it is what it is, I'll just sand it down and paint again.

                                Since it's a replica, there are quite a few imperfections, mainly in the logo itself. Don't know if I want to deal with fixing them or just roll with it.

                                And yeah, the flash is really effing bright. I can't hold the camera steady enough in this lighting to not use the flash.
