Default Cheap Mods That Look Good..

Paid $4 at O'Reilly's for the white pinstripes I put around my powder coated wheels.. Washed my car a good amount of times since I put it on and its very durable. People compliment me on the wheels so much now.. Has anyone else done any cheap mods to there cars that turned out good?

Looks good! I have not personally done any cheap mods to my car, but I've seen a '10-'12 GC with stick-on little vents that you could get at Wal-Mart. The guy had them on front fenders.

No mods yet, but I am hoping I can soon find some aluminum mesh inserts for the faux hood scoops to let some of the engine heat out. Anybody else think this is a good idea?

Plasti-Dip is your cheap friend.

I am thinking about getting a couple of the bumper centerbars, painting one body color, one gloss black, and my current wrapped 3M DiNoc Cf and swapping them out whenever I feel like a change.

How long does it take you to take off the front bumper?

On the old RSX-S... took me like 10 minutes... dang thing used to burn out headlight bulbs a couple of times a year!

Now after doing a couple times, about 10-15 minutes. Takes more time to disassemble the 3 piece bumper after you remove it. There are literally 20+ screws.

Time to go track down the DIY for the removal of it.... dang dealer had put the license plate holder on the car... so worst case, just replace the "holy" one with an "unholy" one!

Do you have a side close up view of the wheels?

Th pinstripping you used, is it solid? Most I have seen are like a double line.

Also how did you apply it to make is straight?

Yes it is solid and I just jacked the car up some and slowly rotated the tire while I applied it along the edge of the wheels. I'll take a close up picture shortly.

Only bad thing about doing that.... is it will be a b*tch to keep your engine compartment clean!

1st rainstorm will start to make the engine compartment a mess.
