They are actually done with vinyl. For the grand price of 13.90 at advanced I picked up a roll of black vinyl that is supposed to be used for making a tri stripe... As seen here:[IMG][/IMG] on my old Dakota (I miss her- not as well liked as my car, but she was my first) anyway, I just flipped it over and cut one 3 inch wide piece and one 1.25 inch piece for both sides. Make sure you clean it REALLY GOOD WITH A DEGREASING SOAP, then use the same soapy water mix under the vinyl to squeegee it out. Good luck.

I'm loving the new look.
Very clean and also very mean looking. I think it needs to go out and beat up some imports now.

The only thing that will make our cars a threat would be a new drivetrain and powerplant. Nobody with a non-ST Third Gen is going to be a threat to anything other than a stock Civic. We can make our cars a little quicker, a little different, and that's really about it. Those that want to be a threat are either holding out for the ST or are planning on trading in on an ST.

It needs some go fast parts first. Doing the newmission and a k&n drop in as soon as my filter gets here. Then I want to do a lunchbox delete and pray that someone offers a tuner for us soon.

I'm not saying that our cars won't be fun, but I try to be realistic. I bought my Ti with the intent of having a fun, reliable, and comfortable vehicle. I will definitely set my sight at having the fastest Third Gen Non-ST in town, but I know that I won't be running down any stock FR-S either...

That piece is good for looks but won't be as durable (thin aluminum) when you bounce or drag something over it and it will show scratches more readily also but it does look good.
