@ankitahuja i like your suggestions . i have removed all the stickers except those bumper guards as they will be removed after touch up job.
As for the tints the car is tinted with the legal film.
And Tyre shine and polish wont last for an hour as mostly my drive is rural so they are mostly covered with mud. please give more suggestions
Can you please post the pictures post the removal of the stickers.

@Ankitahuja - The car would definately look cooler and cleaner with the film but i guess it's banned in Punjab.

Trust me the alloys you are going for, the car color and the badging, all together is going to give the car a great look. The chrome alloys are too huge and an eye sore for the color and not going too well with the overall feel of the car. Just suggesting.

Congrats. It's nice to know that a 99' model is still working like new.

I'm not sure how much the type 2 headlights would cost but one thing is for sure that soon your baby is going to turn into a really good looking machine.

All the best dude!!

And to put the type 2 HLs, the following are also required since it's not a direct bolt on mod:
  • Change front bumper
  • Change both side fenders
  • Change the bonnet

A member has already done this conversion on his white OHC. Navin_BHP or Navin BHP. Search him and look at this garage.

What about the Ferrari , Jatt Boyz and the Hon da Sticker? Maybe it's a rage in Punjab but it definately is not looking good on your ride.

Don't go by everyone's suggestions but definately your ride would shine minus those stickers.

removing honda sticker is a pain removing as i have to clean the windshield .The sticker is big windshield decal and only honda is visible in picture.It looks good in reality .instead of removing decal i would rather remove the film at the rear of decal which will make it visible and make it look good
I have not removed ferrari logos as they are going well with the brake calipers and rear hub colours.I am looking for some other alternative for this as i always hated the empty space above or below indicators
