Please dont do the prelude lights again or cut your OEM hood :/

Car looks great .. cant wait to see it dropped
i still have an extra 09 bumper that i will be paint matching. so ill be putting my prelude lights on that one and swap bumpers from time to time. i might cut into the hood sometime in the future.....we'll see. id rather get an extra hood to cut :)

x2.

sorry man, but cutting the OEM hood or putting prelude lights on was a little tacky/ricey IMHO.
its cool man. i liked it a lot when i cut into the hood and attached prelude lights to it. but then again im a ricer. :festive:

Hopefully the Euro models have the cleared headlights like the Accords displayed at Geneva.
It's one of the few changes that pulled me into buying the face-lift next year.

At the OP: as much as I like custom work done to cars, please keep it clean and subtile this time.
I mean the car looks great as it is with a lip and a drop will improve those looks, but keep it clean.
I'm not telling you what you should or shouldn't be doing to yur car because that is yours to decide, but I just think that things like hoodvents don't look right and are out of place on the TSX ( Accord )
But othen than that I do like your car.
Congrats, have a lot of save miles with the new car.

I actually like the hood vents, I love that lighter shade of gray your 09 was, too bad they didnt offer that color for 1st gens.

So today was a test fitment and the front lip obviously doesnt fit well around the foglight area. i trimmed around it and it looks good to me.

i got my s techs today and will be installing them tomorrow along with my LS460 tips.

i will be sanding down the lip tomorrow and paint matching it. also probably do a debadging while im at it

ill be putting 3M tape to get rid of the gaps and i still have to use a heat gun on the front lip since it warped on me when it was sitting in the garage.
