    Thanks! Good thing their pretty cheap. Both of mine seem to be worn, the only way my doors stays open is by wedging something in there or by holding it with my foot. Pain.

    How do I remove these screws under the armrest to be able to change the fabric. This is the only part I’m caught up on.

    The screws are definitely under, but I'm not sure how to pop them out. Thanks for the insight! :thumb: I was going to wrap it with black polyester. I did a test with some purple I had, but I am going to change it to black. I wrapped the light gray piece that connects to the shifter piece and the little black tray.

    I know some people might say rice, but I’m not sure if I’m keeping it on the center console area. Just seeing how I feel about it. The pink is going to black. Lol

    thanks @Honda-Fan :D

    Okay so today I switched out my driver side checker for a new one and I painted my plastic silver door handles a matte black and put some polyester on the arm rests.

    Gotta say, the polyester on the center console and the door card looks great brother! It adds a sporty, yet classy feel to me. Keep it up!

    Thanks :brock: The door check works like a dream, but now the passenger door comes for my legs. lol I should of just switched it, but later down the road.

    Thanks brother! :D:turbospin: I wasn't sure how I felt about the center console, but I'm not a fan of the light gray and I feel like it gives the center a darker top down appearance and brings it all together. Not sure if the fabric was the best choice, but I don't mind it. I was thinking of doing the A pillars in the future.

    I tried to do the hardwood flooring in my trunk. It was my first try at it, I'm not crazy about the wood choice, but I'll be looking around for something like Cherry wood. I also got my headlights restored by some guy local to me and upgraded all my lights with LASFIT. I installed my fog lights and bought some Nokya Yellow LEDs for them and some PIAA Platinums 6000k for my DRL/High and Low Beams. My trunk light is a yellow LED. I also bought the weather tech floor liners front and back.

    I should be getting the yellow fog LEDS and the headlight bulbs today so I can take a photo of the lights and the other LEDs tonight.

    headlights cleared up big time! If you could, ask him if he ended up coating them with a UV block on the headlights after he cleared them (and what product was used). A number of companies sell UV block products, and you'll need to keep reapplying every 6-12 months or so (depending on brand) to keep them from rehazing over.

    I might just take my back seats out and seat belts to save some weight and add more room to put things there too.

    I'll see if I can figure out what he used and get back to you on that. Thanks for the info!

    I installed the low beam headlights with the PIAA Platinum LED's 6000k. Pretty bright. You can also see the LASFIT LED turn signals and the interior LASFIT lights.

    I'm pretty sure the beams need to be adjusted, but I leave over the road tomorrow again for another month or two so when I come back I can install the LED fogs, the DRL/High Beam and try to adjust the beam pattern.

    Their great bulbs!! I went with NOKYA Yellows 2500K and PIA Platinums 6000k for drl/highs and low beams. I'm trying to align the bulbs so I have a decent beam pattern, but this is all new to me. A video said 9 and 3 o'clock. Here is what is I have for the passenger side headlight. Hopefully this is right.

    Interesting. I remember my bulbs stance (looking at the front bumper) 2 and 10. I tried every other way and in the end, it seems 2:10 was the way for me to setup in my car's headlights. I'm happy and have no complaint. I went with Calais yellow bulbs. I've had it installed over little over two years now. My LASFIT front signal switchback bulbs should be here this week. It is the last set of bulb I need since all of the external bulbs are LED. I want to replace my 3rd brake light on the back of the trunk with a blinking brilliant red bulb. I believe it is a 7443. I like one that blinks 3 times before it becomes solid brilliant red. If you or anyone know where I can get this blinking 3rd brake light, I like to know.

    I’ll have to see what these lights end up looking like whenever I get the chance, but at least for the time being I know their all in the same direction. Do you already have the blinking lights from blinking brake lights? It’s a 7443, but I only have them in my brake lights.
