Yea, there's no scratch probs. But i'll be going for 50 profiles next time around to reduce the speedo error.

I meant this silver panel, it'd almost become black after 7 years of use..

Are stanley the original headlights or OE? also performance wise is there any tangible difference? I was lead to believe stock accord lights were 28K a piece! This means I can use super high wattage bulbs and don't have to worry about frying my reflectors

Match it with your upholstery or paint the standard silver-ivory color.

Isn't original = OE???

I have the absolutely SAME headlights which the Honda showroom sells for about 11k per piece, plus taxes. Except that I bought them for 2,200 bucks each.

I guess the 28k figure you got is for both headlights, taxes included.

He guys,

My AC wents (the one you put the ambipur perfume on) are broken. Since the issue came up of the trims. Does any one know where can I source them from in Mumbai?

The left and the centre one are broken.

Cheers!

Last i checked they aren't available at all. The ambipur perfume is the culprit though, i lost the grills where i'd placed it. AND if that perfume leaks you'll loose the paint or polish of whatever it touches as well. So be carefull..

Hmm ok.

Hate to see the broken grill. It spoils the beauty of the vehicle.

Any help to source it would be appreciated!

Good to see someone just trying to redo the car and not hoping to build a speed demon with the exhaust-filter-wire-plug pack.

Ran that size for over 40K on my OHC without a single scrape, the low stance with the 50 profile would look better though.

Try Prakash Auto at S.V. road, Santacruz. They had vents even for my Sierra Turbo back in 2002, they should mostly have a set for the OHC.
