2006 CD Silver ZX3 OEM Style build

Not sure if this is a real build thread since the car is basically tip top mechanically. So this is more or less a cosmetic facelift. I don't "plan" on spending a ton of money on this, I just want my commuter to look and ride better. I like things simple, but I guess you never know how it will end up. Either way I love this car, I always had civics but I think I will enjoy this one way better!

The beginning


First thing that I did was install the head unit I had


I am not a fan of emblems so they had to go, looks much cleaner imo


Now I really don't like Plastidip as an option, but I hate chrome grills even more so this is temporary until I color match the grill


Lastly, I installed a shorty antenna and removed the side moldings. I have done this before, and its still a pain in the ass. My thumb is finally healed from the blister I got from this but its worth it I think.
As it sits right now after clay and wax


So hopefully soon I will be getting the tint redone. The tint now is good, it is a little light and has a ugly reflective look to it. And being in AZ, I need it dark.
Still undecided on the lowering springs, although I will be ordering the Omni kit and KYB AGX's at some point.

Nice start

seeing as its a S or SE, take a look at Steeda's rear swaybar kit. Have those brackets welded on and enjoy having a rear sway

Love the look without the side molding. Looks great! I am not the biggest fan of Plasti Dip either but I think this is one of those few exceptions and don't see why you don't like how that grille came out. I think it looks fantastic.
