Default My '98 4dr to '00 4dr TRUNK Conversion

Ever since I did my Si Front End Conversion, I've been looking for a '99 - '00 4dr Civic Trunk.


I found a Green '00 4dr Civic that was wrecked from the front so I came up on the Trunk for $45


Here's my Civic and what I did:

I'm gonna miss that wing

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My Old Trunk..

I had these Tail Lights for the Longest and that's what made me do this conversion. I'll leave it de-badged till I get to painting the whole car.


Done!

Its insane how people still spend that much money for a paint job n stuff. I guess as long as it looks bad ass then ok lol.

I try to everything myself as much as possible so soon you guys will see that I'll be crazy enough to tackle my own paint job.

I aint spending no damn $1,200 or $900 or even $600 for a paint job.

I'll spend whatever 2 spray guns, primer, base coat, black paint and clear coat costs me. That's all haha!

i dont have the guts to try it myself. i have a spray gun, and when i do the silver on whatever im painting, it looks good. but when i do clear coat, i suck. it never looks right. i think i get the wrong kind of clear coat or something. im not sure. it looks good when i use clear coat with a spray can though. lol. id only use that for my side skirts and front lip like i did.

I seriously hate to thread jack but this seems pointless to start a whole new thread over..

But I just found an Si Front conversion (un painted) with everything for 350.00 Pata! Is that a good deal or no?

Any help G would be greatly appreciated

** End Thread Jack my bad my bad**
