Well after checking my brakes closely, I have 1/2 a pad left,
really couldn't tell with the tires on, so it will be a while before i need new pads,
but i did get the interior pieces painted, turned out really good.
I ordered the ASpec front lip from my local Acura dealer, will be in tomorrow,
have a local RSX club member helping me install it over the weekend.
Not sure if i want to match the rear with the same or go Mugen, but dealers can't help me there. :randy: Pics will come when i have it installed.

Fuck you.. it's snowing tomorrow, can you believe that shit.
south part of the state could get 5-9 inches.. only flurries here.

I am searching for the rear A spec for my car, it has to be OEM.
let me know if you find one... I can get a brand new one from Acura,
but they don't have my color, and i would hate painting over a perfectly good paint job.
I can get one shipped to my door for about $380, but then i'm out for the new paint.

I think in the marketplace - part out section , there’s a guy selling a while aspec lip kit. I think it has magnesium metallic rear lip let me go check. But he has VBP side skirts ( my color) let me go see

Aww the front is magnesium , and the rear is white pearl. Shame you just bought the front lip he had it. I don’t think he wants to piece it out I though. I am real close to just snatching it up but it’s not much of a discount from just getting from dealer

Yeah i did see that post, $800 something for the kit,
kind of high for used, plus adding the cost of painting.
What color are you looking for ?
New cost of a wing $401 + shipping, and side skirts $351 + shipping.
I really don't care for the side skirts, and new is too much,
rear wing i will not add, a little too rice for my taste,
rear lip, i could go Aspec, or Mugen, don't matter to me,
I think they both look nice.

Saturday
I finally got my lip and fog lights installed,
still need to install the interior wiring to make them work..
Maybe tomorrow. The snow missed us and the sun came out around noon,
wasn't going to waste a minute. Did the majority of the work in my apartment... lol

Sunday
PS... I did the interior wiring today for the fog lights, and got them working,
but they only work when the headlights are on, maybe Honda wanted it that way ?
It all maters where you hook up the wire that runs to the steering column switch,
maybe i should have used my tester to find which one works on the parking lights.
This was using Honda instructions, was a bit confusing, but i got'er done.
Let me know if ya need help.

There is a pretty nice write up on the install from Spaz the god , and he dives into how to add a switch ( OEM ) and make so you can run the lights whenever you want ( I think ) I haven’t read in a while. But there are a couple good installs. I’ve just been so broke between trying to get my suspension pieces in , gambling, and taking care of the family ( sh1t a$$ ton of bills wrecking my car money ) I’ve had fog lights as wel as whole bunch of other crap in my shopping cart on kseries parts for like almost a year LOL

Started my vacation today, so i'll have 3 weeks to tinker.
I ripped out my headliner yesterday to start the color change,
from that gray to black, to match the rest of the interior.

Have all parts colored with, Dupli-color vinyl and fabric paint, flat black,
after spraying the A pillar covers,
i was amazed how closely the color matches the OEM panels on the car.
Now all that is left to do is the sunroof sliding door, need to
head out to Home Depot for some plastic to cover the interior stuff while i paint.
too bad you can't remove this panel without removing the sunroof.
I'll post pics when i complete the job.
Tomorrow i should have everything buttoned back up.

Cant wait to see the end results!

I finally finished the project, a bit time consuming, removing all the parts,
but well worth the effort.
Spread out some plastic i got from Home Depot for $1.50,
and left it fly. I don't recommend doing this part without a mask, or respirator,
as the fumes are pretty strong.
I think clipping the rear panels back in was the hardest part,
I thought putting the headliner back in by myself was going to be the hard part,
but it turned out to be pretty easy.

As an extra, over the weekend, i got around to installing my foot well lights.
they are activated by my door and dome light.
