Finished installing the rear HFP kit on the car

Drilling six 12mm holes and two 10mm holes in a brand new, two day old bumper was a little nerve racking!! LOL but definitely worth it.

I must disclose, the 2016-2017 coupe (and sedan) HFP installation instructions are different than 2013-2015! One example is that the entire front bumper must come off and requires you to drill four holes from the inside out - unlike on the '13-15 you drill one 12mm and one 10mm hole near the center lower grille externally. A few other steps have changed with the rear so please do not bank on watching DIY Car Modz' installation videos on YouTube and think that yours will be step-by-step the same. I'll post a link to his video in my How-to as a reference though. The OEM instructions are linked below.

More pics to come when I finish the entire install.

Nope I still have her - she's currently up FS

Sunday I spent the entire day (noon until 11:30pm) installing the front and side HFP kit Now I know why they disclaim "Not for the DIY'er" right in the installation instructions haha It isn't hard per say...just nerve racking! Between having to remove my less than one week old front bumper to drilling eight 10mm holes into it, to scraping off OEM sealant and underbody spray for the skirts and measuring out the wazoo... it definitely takes time and patience to get it perfect. But that I did and couldn't be happier with the outcome - especially grinning that I didn't pay Honda $500 to do it!

I dropped her off at the detail shop now that the HFP kit is fully installed - I won't see her again for another 10-12 days while she gets ceramic pro 9H applied to every inch haha

In the meantime, took this video today out of the garage and in the sunlight to show off the new HFP kit I installed over the weekend

WOW! Looks AWESOME! Honda did a great job with those headlights. It would be hard for me to mod a car that looks that good

The HFP spoiler, OEM all weather mats and trunk tray delivered today! I'll be taking the spoiler up to Pavel on Thursday so that it too can get ceramic coated:
