hey guys theres not really a spot to ask your opinions on exterior shit so im posting it here

i have a 1998 ex civic and i am buying the 2000 si front end. im piecing it together and am getting stuck on what to do so i am asking for YOUR opinions whether you think these will look hot/not.

my car is red so im going to get the type r gunmetal headlights, but im stuck on some other options. i got black koniq traffix wheels but im looking for opions on color for my fog housing. also my grill is going to be red with black mesh with red si emblem. but the fogs come either silver or black so im deciding which ones and also with the lip im looking at either painted mugen lip or painted type r lip

or either painted or left black greddy gracer lip http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?VISuperSize&item=250562976887

but im not sure if that lip will look too off set with the rest of the car because of how low it hangs.

also should i paint sideskirts or leave black?

thanks for your imput in helping me decide for these options and if you guys have any other products in mind that you think would be nice bring them up

thanks

I like the fog cover being silver. As the front lip goes I like the ctr/si lip on the 99-00 civic front end. I just swap a 99-00 Si front end onto my 96 civic too and loving it.

this is what I would do
- red civic type-r front lip
- red side skirts
- black fog light housing
- red civic type-r rear lip
- I would deff not get that greddy lip... too big!!!

Clean and simple... I like OEM styling... people in the know can tell what is done... and people who aren't in the know just think it's a nicely OEM styled car.

Agreed. I personally like the 96-98 front clip better than the 99-00 front clip. I say leave it as is and spend that cash on getting some power/performance gains.

X2/... i Been arguing about this with myself for awhile now.. idk.. I wanna keep it oem cuz of it being a midori.. but I kinda like the fogs better on the 99-00. but i wanna get some for my 96 and see how they look first.

I see too many 99-00 fronts i would like to see more clean 96-98 body styles
this. i had a 97 and i miss it. I have a 2000 now and well i liked the old front better
