Type SH Lip Kit Thoughts

Hey guys and gals, so it's winter here in the Chicago burbs which gives me plenty of time to think of ideas for future mods in the spring. Most recent thought is a type SH lip kit (Front and rear bumpers along with side skirts) on my base lude aka Roxii. She is Milano Red, and I was thinking instead of painting the kit red to match the car, I'd paint it black to go along with the red and black theme. Thoughts? Ideas? And where could I get an SH lip kit? Used lip kit? or ebay brand haha? Help, and links would be greatly appreciated!!!

Re: Type SH Lip Kit Thoughts

There's no such thing as an "SH lip kit".

From the factory all 5th gens came with a naked front bumper, rocker moldings, and a skirt on the rear bumper. On the base model, the rockers and rear skirt were dark grey, textured plastic. On the Type SH, those pieces were colour matched.

Here is a Type SH:



Here is a base:



What I suspect you're referring to is the optional OEM lip kit:




Another option is the Type-S front lip, and color matching the stock rockers and valance:




Either way, paint it to match the rest of the car. Unpainted lips and skirts scream "I'm broke."

I think the red/black would be good, as far as a purchase? Don't buy fake buy oem. You will be 100% satisfied with fitment

Re: Type SH Lip Kit Thoughts

Thanks for the pictures and clarification SirSSpec, I do indeed mean the ONE lip kit. I wouldn't leave them unpainted/finished, I'd have them painted black to off set the red. Lazarky, any good places to buy from other than direct from honda?

They're discontinued. You can either get a used set or a reproduction on eBay

Re: Type SH Lip Kit Thoughts

There are a handful of sellers in eBay that sell the OEM stuff. If it's Round $100 that's the eBay stuff and not oem. Besides that, maybe a junkyard, pick n pull, or Craigslist would be other avenues for you.
