Inspiration for Goldie

So my car is gold, hence being called goldie. So I was looking for some inspiration, a gold ep3(civic sir 2002-2005) that really stood out amongst the crowd and really looked great to me. I didn’t get a white one because they look to blah even when very nicely modded….I like the black ones but they were asking too much to justify the color. plus I wanted a color that showed more of the details and curves of the car, and gold did that for me and so did the price.

But I digress….
here the picks of the inspirational car I may be taking some cues from.

ep11
ep9
ep10
ep7
ep8

I’m not big of the body kit or the changed headlights and hood in the last 2 pics but the 16×8 +0 offset wheels are nice as is the ride height, altho I’d probably aim for a 16×8 +25 offset to pull everything in about an inch…maybe less… kicking myself now for selling the 16×8 +15 wheels I had on the wagon, those would have been very sweet on this car. The car will need new tires in the next few months, so I’ll be in the market for wheels as well. this is what i love about newer cars, you don’t have to fix a bunch of stuff before starting to modify the car, altho it did cost a fair bit more then what i usually meddle with.

  1. I love our new car. I wanted to name it Goldie Hon(da), but was denied. Goldie will do.

    Are you saying you painted the car a new color?
    At the expense of Telus.
    I think “Goldie Hon” makes a lot of sense. But probably takes away from the masculinity of the car, right Josh?

    Did you notice the small air intake above the grill on the right side? Of course you did!
