I centered it as much as possible, measuring both sides the distance from the inner edge of headlight to bumper, then outlined the grille shape using a sharpie, cutting, filing and repeated 3 to 4 times until everything fit flush.





would u happen to know if the 18+ bumper and grill would bolt directly onto the 15-17 years?

You have to wonder how they could make a grill - or any part - that does not fit. All Fits are the same size!

DS series coil overs. Also buying a set of caster camber plates from TCS. I originally ordered 6k 4k spring rates front and rear, but i'm sending them back for 10k 8k per Seamus's recommendation. He actually said 12k 10k is best for racing on a Fit...

Yup as I understand it, it's because of different crash ratings. Typically US has higher speeds than in Japan so the crash standards are higher.

no. Itís a Handkrafted wheel. Ran about $240 on eBay. Considering itís leather and carbon fiber itís quite the deal. The same Tesla wheel would of cost like $1000. Tesla tax in full effect

Yeah it was plug and play and fit exactly. I have a CVT so it took my paddles as well. Hardest part was taking the 10mm Bolt after taking out the airbag. Need some Super Human power to get that off .

I used this https://www.fitfreak.net/forums/3rd-...l-226-hub.html to take the steering wheel off.

Once the wheel is off I followed
to complete the task. Actually if you watch the whole video, it'll give you an idea of the whole process.

steering wheel mod

Steering wheel pleather/suede cover and farbon ciber overlay. Itís nice to have a car with affordable mods from China.

cost was $40 for the cover and $14 for the carbon piece. Little cheaper than the buddy club option.

Just need my Red H and Clazzio Seat covers and my interior is about done

Not a bad price, and it looks great.
