Took some time Saturday to cover almost all of the chrome trim pieces w/ black vinyl, and installed my splash guards. Removing the trim pieces wasn't horrible, but I did have to remove the mirrors to get to the front door pieces. Overall, I'm very happy.

Thanks. I like it without the chrome, too. I did not take pics of the process, sorry. I should have. Pretty simple, though. For the 2 pieces at the windows, just start at the back and slowly pull upwards. You'll be taking the entire trim piece off, not just the chrome. You can take just the chrome off, but it's ridiculously hard to get back on (trust me!). The front piece on the fender, pull up gently from the bottom. Take the clips off with the piece. When you put it back on, start from the top and press down.
You will need to remove the mirrors to get the front door pieces off. Inside the front door, pop the piece off around the tweeter starting just inside the door. There are two clips that go into the door, then just gently remove it. Behind it you will find 3 torx bolts to remove the mirrors.
The rear piece (near the small rear windows) I did not remove. I simply fitted the vinyl the best I could with the help of a $14 heat gun from Harbor Freight.

P.S. those are not settled yet. Hehehe
That looks awesome, and you've definitely got a ways to go before it's fully settled. I would imagine that this was immediately following the drop because that's about where my Pro-Kit springs landed after about 2k miles.

I hope to see more pics in the future

Just my opinion, but it looks too old school, like what people used to do to Civics in the 90's

I'm not going to take up a bunch of space on here because I dedicated a new thread to it, but here is my before and after pic of my new Eibach Sportlines.

Not settled yet.

Nope, just bought a roll of 12" x 48" matte black vinyl off of Ebay for like $6. It really wasn't that hard to do, just took some time and finesse.

After. I cut it into close sizes, then laid it down, then trimmed all of the excess off. Much easier to work with it if you have a little extra. (Insert perverted joke here).
