Where did you get your parts from? I'm wanting to do this, but no way am I going to pay the stealership prices.

Updated! And finished!

Tbone: Thats the hard part. I had to search on eBay and the For Sale forums for the parts. IF you cant find them, or cant wait, the dealership is the only option, or even www.acuraoemparts.com

Damn....looking good . You should take some more pics from different angles. You should also get some fog lights to finish off the front.

joo all

I will get more pics up. Just check the Memeber's Show-Off section later on. Also about the bumper, i got a used one off ebay for $180 shipped, and costed me $250 to paint it.(3 coats SSM, 3 coats clear). And yes, fitment was perfect. Both the bumper and A-spec lip. The aspec lip fits PERFECT. It literally hugs the bumper. Just line up the holes with the dimples on the bumper and put screws there.

Yea, i hear alot of people dont like the lip. But, like b/c of the price and fitment. Mugen lip was so expensive, so i went the cheaper route. Thanks for everyone's input. Hope this helps others in the future

Looks good man. Quite an accomplishment. How much did this cost total? I think personally I'm gonna keep my '02 look and maybe buy Type-R lights and the type-R lip? I haven't seen the type-R lip, or at least haven't identified it. But I do want a lip on my car. Also, if I buy the ITR spoiler how much do you think it'll cost to paint? Same $250 or so?

I dont think it would cost that much but I dont know I think you could paint it yourself like someone did a DIY on how to paint some sideskirts shouldn't be as hard but I think it could be done. Correct me if im wrong
