Full carbon fiber frontend

Finally got the front bumper from GTP. If anyone plans to get this bumper, plan on doing some customizing. I also got the trunk too.

To all who asked about cost, it didnt cost me anything. I let GTP use my car as the development car so I get the parts free as they come in. I think if i were to have paid for the parts the breakdown would be $400 - hood, $600 - front bumper, $600 - fenders, and $600 - trunk. As for the headlights. I gave them a pair to have CF'd but it'll probably be a while before i see them. I think ill probably end up getting the black house projectors and try retro some HIDs before then. Ill put in a grill when i change the headlights cuz it was hell trying to put the bumper on. Both the fenders and bumper i had to cut some parts. Some parts are too thick or some of the holes arent drilled and some parts are stuck together that shouldnt. Also my hood is already starting to fade. Honestly i would not purchase parts for the 7th gen accord from GTP (importfan.com). The parts are free for me so I cant really complain. I can honestly say you wont be winning shows with their parts. Also if you do plan to order parts from them, be warned. They take a hella long time to get parts in. You can all ask brex about that.

So next items im waiting for are the side skirts, rear lip, engine cover, cooling panel, side mirror covers, the dome part that goes over the gauges, and i think thats it. Next thing ill probably get is the side skirts in about a month and then the rear lip the month after that. As for the rest of the parts, i dont expect to see them until next year.

Am I the only one that doesn't like this? Overkill.

Trunk, yes. Hood, yes. But from the side, the fenders look aren't doing it for me. Hey, but it's just one man's opinion.
