Dude theres about 10 of us that i can think of at the time, Myself Included, who are doing JDM Conversions (attcually starting to bug me out, since I did it to be Unique) , and Everyones still using the Stock Radio, personally I attcually took some Black Electrical Tape, put it over where it says acura, and used a exacto knife to cut it out, belive it or not it looks perfect..., Steering wheel I still havent figured out a way around...but anyway...

BTW, where is this radio head unit from? If it's from the US Accord then you can use it after retrofitting it. But if it's from Japan, you'd need to have the frequency type changed to suit the US frequency. Not exactly the best mod if you ask me just to get that "JDM" look.

Memphis, the steering wheel Honda emblem is attached to the SRS airbag assembly. What you need is the Honda SRS airbag instead of the Acura SRS airbag. It bolts-on fine. That's the easiest way to do the steering wheel/Honda emblem conversion.

Yup, but that Also Costs 400$ :tardsmash

Im currently trying to retrofit one of those Aftermarket Honda Badges for the Rear of the civic SI, the red ones w/ the Carbon fiber weave, since its about the same size as the A badge, just need to figure out a way to pull it off

Red ones with carbon fibre weave? Very rice ... If you ask me.

Euro R Honda emblems are not red filled.

the cheap ones was just the initial idea,
These as im sure u know are made by honda for the Civic / Teg Type R... the Civic Type R rear badge is about the same size as the A on our steering wheelreason w/y it has to be colored in is so it fills in all the spots the A did

the head unit is from a 2004 honda accord i have seen this head unit on most of the euro r in japan including you Noel thats what gave me the idea to put that radio in my car. I guess i wanted to be different from most of the tsx in new york.

Stud, the 04 Coupe is the Identical Wheel to the TSX, just has a H on it, not an A...
