Mods done since then:
Alpine USB mp3 deck
2 10" Rockford fosgate subwoofers
Top end rebuild
5 way adjustable Tokico illumina shocks
Neuspeed race springs
94-95 grilles
New bumper signal with civic harness mod
Depo amber corner lights
Depo flat style side markers (not installed yet)
15x10 diamond steelies (where black just sprayed them white today)
8mm spacers all around
Window tint by Lexus of Bellevue (looks perfect)
Wink 5-panel rear view mirror
New center console
Debadged trunk except accord logo
Recently removed window visors one got busted
Rear visor is off waiting for warm weather to put it back on
Front plate relocation
Rear tow hook (front one not installed yet)
Removed chrome accent piece on trunk lid
Various sticker on my windshield lol

Mods to come hopefully before June are:
Boost the current f22b2 or h22 swap

Sounds like a cool car, diamond steelies are sick on Hondas. You should post pictures of the car ! My suggestion would be an h22a4 swap. Boosting that f22 is not worth it. If you want boost just rebuild the h22 with lower compression pistons and some head work and it will make good power! Feel free to ask any questions as I'm a Honda lover myself!

Image hosting is a bit spotty right now...

Try imageshack.us and post the [img] tags from there.

By far the best image hosting would be using Imgur - https://imgur.com/

It's one of the best ones out there!

Cheers

looks clean for sure, I wanna say that chrome trim would be super slick if it was blacked out like the rest of car.

Thanks guys, glad you like it! I want to black out the chrome trim its just figuring out the right way to do it, i hear paint will chip and peel. apparently you can get this kinda think black tape from pepboys (not one around Sad ) and its perfect for just going right over the trim

What's the best way then? Tape off the car or try and pull the trim and then spray it?

Just tape off the car man.

If you get any plastidip on the paint just let it try and peel it off.

You don't need to even tape very much. just tape some news paper on the window. you actually want to spray over the gap between the car and the trim so then you just peel it off the car and it will separate perfectly where the trim is. Check videos out on you tube!!
