Hey guys i just joined the forum a couple of days ago and posted this thread in the "welcome section": Please read my initial welcome post:
http://www.tsxclub.com/forums/membe...wish-ride-awesome-forum-help-appreciated.html

Yesterday and today were the first days off from work in a couple of months so I knew I needed to use all the daylight I could and take advantage of it. Here are some pics of before:

as said in my welcome post I was going to go for a red and black theme, basically swap the chrome for black.

I really enjoyed the outcome...Except I felt rushed do to time and possible reain showers, so there a couple of things I would like to redo, the diffuser was a little sketchy, I was originally going to do the center of the hood where is raises up down to the grill but ran out of day light. I was going to make the acura symbol in the grill red as well with the acura logo's on the rim's red. But there's always next time. after completing it, I think I enjoy the look of it now than may of had if doing both of those things, but I guess I wouldn't know till I do it. Your thoughts and what do you think?

I was very happy with the way it turned out, and got many head turns taking on it's first trip, just going to the grocery today. Haha, I was thinking of doing the Mirrors as well, appointment for window tint is scheduled for next week. I will post updates here and there. What could I add if anything, What do y'all think?
