    That Glacier blue will totally pop on your car. If you do that colour and keep some black accents, like your headlights, side moldings, window tint and wheels, it will look so bad ass!

    I love the current colour, but I agree 110% with the glacier blue choice. I can't wait to see it.

    I guess the props from people stopping me at gas stations and... Well rolling down windows at 60mph yelling nice color or wheels (tru story bro) or w/e keeps me wanting to improve the car.

    Possibly installing coilovers and/or BISI intake gasket this weekend!
    I feel the same way, it's like a car journal at this point, But that's ok
    It's sad your inspire headlights are done. They looked so nice, they made your car so unique. Keep up the sick work bro
    I'll keep my eye on your thread...

    Keepinit I do miss those headlights, but there was no way to really fix or replace the cracked one or I would have done the retro on it and it woulda been sick!

    Painting everything to match, or going to redo the whole car?
    Thanks! Yeah I actually liked not blacking out the highbeams, and its a good thing because the chrome coating is really thin on these new replacements. The car had hail damage a few months ago, so the roof needs repairs, and I want a lighter color so Glacier Blue metallic will be the new color after roof and some other imperfections are taken care of. I freakin loved the color when I first noticed it, it's so much better than silver without shouting, look at me!

    The inspire front end was so sick! But these headlights are even sicker!

    No, no more Accord Inspire front end. Pass side headlight was broken from last fall accident =(

    Progress pics!





















    Light output is amazing. Aim is way high so I got some tweaking to do but at this point I must get my inspection so that will wait... One of the corner lights decided to hide at my apartment, so I'm scrounging for that. Meh pulled the car cover off after leaving it at my parents during vaca and there is a DENT in the brand new hood I just bought... i wanted to cry...

    Still need to finish up wiring, install new fenders and side markers in the fenders, install trunk lid replacement for hail damage, install coilovers, get alignment, and I really need to do control arms and sway bar end links all around as well. I haven't had a free weekend all year thanks to this car

    Ehem. Anywho, car is at parents and covered while I take a much needed week off with wife's family at donner lake, aka a small lake next to lake Tahoe. Between working full time and overtime I have been doing something car related almost every weekend this year. The weekend after I come back I plan on replacing the front clip at my parents, along with headlights and new front bumper and Fenders. After that body work and paint! Man I will be Sooo happy...
