I finally finished, except for a speaker cover changing my interior from titanium to black.
I will post pics of the work done on the outside once my new wheels and tires are mounted

It was a winter project. Bought all SC panels a little at a time. Panels were purchased from US Honda or CDN Honda dealer depending on who was giving the best price.

I'm jealous; this is the exact project I had planned if I ever upgraded to the newer gen E.

Please give us some exterior shots as soon as possible!!! :)

Might I ask roughly how much the conversion set you back?

Im not exactly sure without adding up all the invoices. Rough estimate $4000.00. One thing to be aware of, is that the seat belt has a titanium plastic piece which you can not buy. You have to buy the complete seat belt assembly.

Soooo...

Now that you've 2-toned the INTERIOR, do you plan on 2-toning the EXTERIOR...? Maybe black around the A-pillar so that you look like the Drift-E...?

Just wondering...

The outside won't be pimped out, not my style. I prefer a clean classy look, which I feel I have obtained minus the new SC wheels. :lol:

It looks really cool........but someone has to ask....

Why didn't you just buy an SC or one the way you wanted, surely it would have been far less than the +$4k you have dropped in it?

Don't get me wrong, I've been "modding" cars for a couple of decades but usually it's to do something different than factory. I assure you no offense intended, just curious.

They went right into the dumpster, it was cluttering the garage. I wasn't going to waste my time cataloging, and putting out ads to sell them, let alone pack and ship them. I kept a few items which are not forsale.

Tires are on back order, so no pics yet.
