Good design, but i think you should go easy on the skirts because such low skirts easily break in our roads(due to potholes and speedbreakers) and how about some vibrant color for the paintjob?

@badboyscad- yes bro, you are right. The skirts will be little higher ( Kolkata is worse when it comes to potholes and speedbreakers!!) . And talking about colour, other colour options which i had in mind were Passion red (which you have for Lancer) or Kawasaki Lime green with black combo. But i am not really sure whether i will get that green in India in gud quality. What do you think?

Red is seen on a lot of hondas, if you plan to put in a body kit then id suggest go in for blue, blue hondas arent seen that often , my personal choice is blue, and i feeel it would look good on a OHC with a decent bodykit and rims.

@Raj - In my personal opinion, if you want your honda look clean and non-riced, I would suggest getting a pearl white or black paintjob with some nice 17-18" deep dish wheels. You could also lower it by an inch or so, so its has an aggressive look and also does not have a huge gap in fender well. As far as a bodykit, go for the simplest one possible. Goodluck with your project.

18" wheels on the city? thatís interesting, you need to do a lot of work on the car if you need those big wheels and drive it with more care.

18" wheels will give you a very bumpy ride and also won't last very long on our roads.
you'll have to modify the wheel wells to fit them in the first place.
IMHO don't go above 15-16" for a decent ride.

I think 17 or 18 inchers are way too much for indian roads. Instead of spending money on trying to get them fit the OHC (and later on crib about their ride quality), that money could be well spent on other things. 15 should be max for the OHC.

Raj i suggest we meet up sometime to check out your car.
