Got my 2004 RSX Type-S in November 2010, pretty much stock except a Skunk2 megapower catback, aftermarket deck, and Rockford Fosgate p3 subs.

within the first year I got HIDs, Rotas, painted calipers, and smoked the lights since they looked foggy anyways








then I picked up the black housing lights for a good deal with yellow foglights (not yet installed)

Looks great so far! Maybe lower it a bit and do a 05-06 front conversion??? Keep up the good work!

Finally got the paint finished last week :)
Redid the nite shades on the lights and used clearcoat over them too

yea some don't like the yellow, it's definitely a bold choice but I like it better than the typical colors people always choose. Definitely gets noticed, people always know when its me. I've only seen a handful of yellow RSXs, and never any in person besides my own

Wow painted it without a paint booth. I can only imagine all dust and debris that's stuck to your paint right now.
haha yea, I had to wait for perfect conditions. Its actually pretty clean, people are always surprised when I tell them it was painted in my backyard

gonna be lowered real soon, that's next for sure ;)

I wasn't really feelin the two-tone that I did last year, but didn't want 100% yellow either, so when I resprayed it this year I just did the hood/roof/top of spoiler black. There's gunmetal flakes in the black too, which match the rims really well and look amazing in person when the sun hits it

Your ride is tight man, did you use tint or spray on your lights?
They were peeling the factory coating so I tried tint but it gets all wrinkly and looks like shit. What I did was wet sand them with a really fine sandpaper, spray a little nite shades, and used the same clearcoat that's on the car on top. Looks much better and much more durable than my old ones I did with rattle-can clear

Yeah man, I'm in that same boat right now. I put the tint on the lights about 3 years ago and boy are they shitty now. I was thinking about buying some LED lights and then just getting those painted black, so the cops won't give me such a tough time. I'm not skilled enough to do it my self, and its tough to find a body shop around my area (Little Rock, AR) who will do it.

Your lights came out really good!

Haha I really can't stand not being lower. I wanted to do it right though, no lowering springs or cutting, and just didn't want to spend that much at the time
