Hi, i'm posting my very first post. I've actually gotten some help from this forum alraedy though.
I just started doing some mods to my car and i wanted to ask a question.



I know it's hard to see but i just installed a new grille. Got it from ebay for $20 but it fits PERFECTLY. I didn't have to do any mod to fix it. according to the seller it retails $70 but they are selling cheap but idk lol
I was just wondering, should I paint the grille white or keep it black? I think it looks good the way it is right now but I'm not sure how it will look white.

im not a big fan of the grill , i use to have one on my old car, its a mugen grill. it looks tacky in my opinion, but if you like ,rock it.

and id paint it.

yeah for some weird reason, I kept thinking mugen grille looked great until i bought it lol After I bought it, i've noticed that i wanted the mesh grille more, but this isn't too bad. I will also upload the interior mod pics that i did if anyone's interested.
I've just spray painted n clear coated my window switch panel, guage, and door handle panel white

You can always throw it up on craigslist and see if someone wants to buy it for 30+ and try to get the other grille.

I might do that shaaaft. do you recommend mesh grille too? and if i get that other grille should i paint that one?

The regular mesh grill would look better IMO and yeah paint that 1 to if you get it dont paint the mess just the trim around it.

I like mesh better, but maybe if u painted that one and got some fogs then u could pull it off.

welcome to the site. and yea deff get the mesh grille and paint it white. some color civics can get away with leavin it black but thats only some. good luck with the vehicle.
