Mirrors came out great! That injector cover sticks out pretty good in that engine bay. :lol:
Damn, 00-01 non R/T front looks great with those projectors and fogs.
White rims going on soon?

u should also paint yer letters on yer injector cover black or something, they never look right one solid cover

looks good though man, hope it gets that tranny soon!

Sell the white wheels mang. In my opinion, the style you've got on your steelies suits the car better. Get some black wheels with a polished, red, white, yellow, etc...lip. Stay with 15s or 16s. Makes the car sit a ton lower. I also would have just painted the "housing" of the mirrors, and not the bases as well. Still looks good. Makes me like the 00-01 front end a little more.

i plan on getting new wheels cuz im getting tired of trying to keep the white ones clean... there is some damage to them due to me letting my ex drive my car... so i prob wont get much for them and i am a poor college kid and i need to try and save money from working over the summer so i can bring my car back up to school with me next semester... if i find some nice 16's or 15's at a good price i will definitely scoop them up... and black is more what i was thinking for the fuel injector cover too... my friend suggested red but then again he also has an integra and i think the v-tec has gotten to his brain

i just dont wanna look like a dumb ricer with dumb looking steelies... i would really need a nice paint job... how much do you guys think it would be to maybe get them powdercoated? they r pretty badly rusted. i found some wheels for a somewhat decent price but it would still be pushing my luck for saving money

Yeah. Get some legit spacers, or have a shop widen the wheels. VW guys always have 16x8 or 15x8 steelies for sale. I bet you could get some 15x7 steelies, and do them a flat black or get those chrome trim rings on them. Rock 'em like it's a Crown Vic.

What type of wheels are you looking at? The ones on wheel max didn't show up. I found this company called "nippon" that sells a few 5x100 wheels on ebay, $300 shipped. I really want a set of the 16" rota slip knockoffs for my NYG.

Saw these too, contemplated snaggin' em.

Tom, Idk what it'd cost, to be honest. Vdub wheels would be easier to find, and might cost a tad more, but that saves you from paying to have your steelies widened.
