I have not been able to source momo pedals specific to Civic. So, I have decided on the Mugen pedals. Unfortunately, my dealer guy didn't know that I have a manual, and he got the pedals for Auto instead. So, still waiting for it..

BTW, this is what I want:

@iTNerd: She seems to be shaping up very well. Do post some pics once the job is complete. While it definitely adds to the appeal of an already great looker, I suppose you would need to be a tad cautious when driving on bad/uneven roads.

What a painful task...final paint has been applied today.. took almost 6 hours to complete the paint.. though the kit is screwed to the car, the 3M tap is still not opened and stuck.. it will be done tomorrow after some detailing and finishing touch.. What strange is, the kit comes with a long rubber moulding material, which would be wrapped along the upper edges of the kit to hide any rough edges, prevent water from sipping through as well as for aesthetic purpose.. it is silver color and I am unsure how it would affect/enhance the looks.. I have not seen such rubber moulding being added when I installed the SX4 kit a few years ago..

Thanks rr_zen.. yeah, I need to do now.. the GC does not seem that bad though, but I would reserve my comment after some months..

Well, the final touch are over and I have some few pics of the install. It looks much better in person though. Gives a meaner look!

@iTNerd: Awesome job ! She looks great ! Hope you are prepared to live with the decreased GC now . By the way, do you know of any other dealers that sell accessories for Civic online other than Performance Zone ? Any pointers will be helpful. Thanks.

@iTNerd,

Great Job. Didn't think it is possible in India.
I currently live in Japan and yesteday saw CIVIC Type R white colour. Your car looks exactly same including the rear spoiler. Didn't think it is possible in india. I guess one thing left is alloys upgrade. Then i think you can say to everybody that, this car is imported directly from Japan :-). I hope speed brakers in delhi are not as huge as in Bangalore. Have fun and i am sure you you must be proud.
