    I thought I would start an inspiration thread to give all fellow moders a chance to see what their car would look like before spending any money.

    If you want me to photoshop your own vehicles or change the color etc just send me the links and I'll see what I can do.

    I'll probably be joining in on this soon as I'm back home with my main rig (hate working on a Macbook), can we open it up to all Accords in general?

    Nice one Jace, didnt know you were into photoshopping. Do you do that as a hobby or is it part of your job ?

    Here's my level of photochop skills :-

    Its just a hobby. I wanted to get into graphic design but ended up becoming a printer.


    I thought if we kept the same Gen cars together it would make browsing easier but It doesnt really matter I suppose. It should be a good thread to see what different alloys look like on your car as I can pinch them of one to put on another.

    Non Genuine Mugen Badge £5 from ebay.

    I like it as it matches the other side nicely. It came with a nice template round the letters to keep them level too.

    That mugen badge is counterfeit goods so sorry Jace have to remove the link bud. Just a reminder chaps please don't insert links like these on here.

    Genuine articles not an issue. That out of the way the badge looks good :Smile:

    Yep no change in the ride Jace. Actually replaced my front tyres to match the backs, as the fronts were down to 2mm. Seems a slightly more compliant ride on the new tyres, those Accellera Phi tyres that I've reveiwed in the review section.

    Suppose the 18" deltas would be a slighty more firm ride, but better handling.

    What colour should I paint my calipers ?

    I was thinking red but unsure if to just play it safe with silver?

    I was also contemplating trying plasti dip in the rims but that may have to wait.

    red grey. silver grey.

    Yeah I think the red is a bit over powering, a matching silver to go with the shade of your alloys should look good.
