    Hi all

    Got my accord at Christmas last year and I am looking at doing a few cosmetic things to it. It is a black EX saloon 8th Generation

    Just wanted to hear your opinions.

    1. Wrap the grill satin black
    2. Tint rear window
    3. Powder coat alloys anthracite.
    4. Possibly wrap interior trim satin black

    Here she is after a quick wash and jetseal applied.

    3. I would change wheels to 18"
    4. wrap to match interior or grill

    I prefer when wheels filling out arches so you would need to get lower offset, OEM wheels have aprox et50 so you won't get that look, with aftermarket you can choose whatever you want

    Yh i had googled it and found a couple of places. but i was more wondering if anyone on here did alloy work. thanks for the reply tho pristine look good but a bit far to go. think i will end up going to Alloy wheel refurbishment and repair - Quality refurbished wheels bit expensive i think but a day turnaround and good results. might be booking in for end of the month. been quoted £320-£370 for full referb and anthracite powdercoated. not to sure if thats good or not but as i said think it is a bit steep.
