not much of an update but ordered some new brake rotors and pads.

went with Cryo Stop rotors and Hawks Premium Ceramic brake pads.

went with the cheapest option and had to wait for the rotors and pads to be special ordered. they should be here within 2 weeks according to their estimate. but i saved about $25. not bad for a little wait i guess.

Reviews for them will be up when i get them installed by my friend.

Just wanted to update this a little. The Civic's pretty much sitting the way it was 2 years ago except a bunch of rock chips on the front bumper and lip.

This past weekend decided to detail her and also paint matched the fog light bezel since i have an extra set. There are some cars where i prefer the gray bezel but i'm am liking mines paint matched so I am going to keep it that way. The paint is Duplicolor as well and i think it matched pretty nicely. Let me know what you guys think of it.

Next thing i plan to do is just spray the windshield wiper and window trim black since it's exposing chrome underneath.

That is all, just wanted to post something.

New wheels on its way. The deal was too good to pass on some drags. Was looking at Dr 31 but they were out of stock so settled for some 15" drag Dr 34's in gunmetal with polish lip. Hoping it would look good but I really wanted the dr31's though. Hopefully going on next week so stay tune

Took a cell phone picture at the gas station last night. Don't have any quality pictures just yet. What do you guys think about those wheels?

Meh, I don't hate those wheels. Better than the HXs you had IMO

exactly how i feel too. I liked them in pictures but not so much on my car. I was 50/50 on them when i got them on. Too late now. I won't complain since i got a good deal on them anyways. I paid $750 for the wheels and tires. I was going to spend about $400 to replace the tires on the hx's anyways. I'm getting a $175 rebate plus I got mounting and balancing free. So $175 extra to add the wheels

Just checking in to see who's still around and a little follow up of the civic. Couple months ago someone attempted to steal the car at work but was unsuccessful. Had to replace the window sill, pillar, and the ignition column. It sucked and set me back a decent amount of money to fix and replace things.

Other than that the only other thing that i did was tinted the red part of the taillight so its a little darker red and plasti dip the rear "H" emblem black. I think it makes the rear end nicer.

Also, recently just got my M1 license. So on the hunt for a bike to play around with. Looking at a Ninja 250r to start with as my first bike.

Other than that, just stopping by to hi to everyone.
