    I havent been around here much lately so I decided to start a build thread to keep over here. About a month ago I picked up my 07 Galaxy Grey Si sedan. It was bone stock with a little over 130k miles. So far I have only done a few small things but have a few ideas for future mods.

    7/9/15 picked up from dealership

    First thing I did was give it a full claybar and wax along with removing the dealer sticker and civic rear badging

    The stock shift knob and boot were looking a little tired so next was a Carbing shift knob and a new leather boot

    Basic plans are to make the car a nice daily. Wheels will come first then probably tint and mugen visors. I will probably do a front lip and new headlights and leave it like that for a while

    Ive got one too, its a great daily driver. I also removed the civic badge, then I got some red reverse overlays.

    The owner before me painted the Honda emblems and they look like shit.

    Nice! I really like this generation of Si. They look really good and seem like they would be fun. I am considering leaving the mustang world until I finish school, and this car is on the list of replacements. Look forward to seeing the progress!

    You better watch out for vtec bro

    Speaking of vtec

    Another no too exciting update


    The passenger side vtec decal was in rough shape when I got the car, the drivers side was fine but I decided to replace both of them. I got the replacements here: http://sosign.ipage.com/store/product27.html
    They match the factory ones perfectly and only took a few days to get here

    They bolt up to our cars too iirc. Most of the RPF1s that I found in my area were off evos and s2000s. The hondas had about the same offset, the evo's didn't however.

    Stock Wheels
    17x7
    ~23lbs

    Evo Wheels
    17x8
    ~20lbs

    They require mag seat lug nuts but other than that they bolted right up

    Yep they are all 5x114.3. They are 17x8 +38. There are a lot of people that run cobras, saleens, etc on their 8th gens


    Dont have my Nikon but here are some cell pics of them mounted

    Good work on the headlights, this car will look great with tint and a nice stance... I can appreciate a good Honda build, my old civic was a fun little car
