what i want to know is....

Why is our Gen so difficult to find good parts?! Most of the lips are garbage...we have to go to the accords for lips!!! The tail lights are garbage for the most part....thank God our tail lights look pretty good stock!! Why do all the headlights suck for our gen?! I mean, everyone else has killer headlight assemblies except us...all we have is the ****ing one piece JDM black housing that EVERYONE has...not because they look that good, but by default!!!. The halo's look like ****, the Depo's projectors look like ****... anyone know if there are easy conversions, or other headlights that fit? Its driving me crazy..

Re: what i want to know is....

...cause we like a challenge, and if i wanted something easy I would have bought a civic and been like one of the 5000000 kids with mom and dads money buying anything and throwing it on my car, but thats just a little vent for me.

Bottom line: if it's easy, it ain't worth doing.

Re: what i want to know is....

I think the JDM black housing 1 pieces look awesome.

And we have Spoon Imitation front lips made out of poly-eurothane and its almost indestructible.

I'll post a link up in a minute for the spoon lip. The accord lip is the rear only.


These are sexy as hell IMO
JDMSHT Spoon imitation PZ discount thread
More pictures...
http://www.jdm****.com/parts/exterior/PreludeSpoonLip/

Isn't that Slick_ludes prelude??? Looks very close if not...

Re: what i want to know is....

The Accord R lip fits the front. Nick used to have one.

If you don't like what's available for your car, buy a different one.

What are u talking about? The 4th gens have a good variety of good looking lips. Taillights look good stock to me. You don't like the black housing JDM lights? I frickin love 'em! had some on my old lude. You can make any headlight fit but I wouldn't.

Do you think this lip and light combo looks good?

yeah your combo looks good.

and if you dont like your lude get rid of it but there are plenty of options out there. i cant believe i am tellin somebody to get rid of their lude but its better to get rid of it then to go around bashin it and givin them a bad name.

I don't know what the hell they are. At first I thought they were rota c8's then I realized they were 9 spoke. Check out c8's ... they are pretty close to that.
