Buds, me no speak with forked tongue!!!! Made so many posts about mod purchases prior to actually taking delivery. Now that the GK is part of this household, the bleeding of outgoing funds will finally stop!!!

Weight at 37 lbs./wheel is decent. They track and balance well, with no steering wheel shimmy at higher speeds.

Definitely promotes a different look and blends well with our local Hawaiian T-shirts! Bright and Colorful.

Appreciate the kind remarks!!! Go to post #510 in the "What mods......" thread for some more detailed info and a link posted by JupiterJoe. Its an OEM accessory that makes you smile everytime you open the front doors!!!!

Mucho thanks man!!! For more "good lookin" wheels, take another look at the pics you posted at your last meet. I spent time going over each one. Gotta say that lowering does wonders especially on a Fit!!!!!

Take my hat off to the FF guys who spend time dressing up their wheels in SoCal. Its one of the threads that influenced my mod approach to owning my second Fit.

As posted in the "What mods....." thread, here's the update plus some add'l pics of the 90% finished FIT.

With the majority of the ICE wiring tidied up, today was reinstall time plus the addition of a couple of accessories.

Front seats back in:

Quickly installed OEM cargo liner (collapseable boot bag was the wife's contribution):

Found a place for the powered sub under the right front seat:

Took her for a drive to check for anything loose or rattles. Nothing there, however, with the seats out for 3 weeks, the airbag light stayed on. Had to reset and now, all is good.

For some reason, the upgraded stereo sounds better with the interior in place. No wonder the guys at the stereo shop didn't want to EQ my sytem until the interior was back in.

Finally, the Rottboy project is nearing its conclusion. Probably won't install the rear park sensors. The little Fit is just looking too busy.

Pics out of the garage after weeks of careful installs:

Had a request to take a farther pic of how the JDM GK Hybrid lighted upper tail-lights blends with the MDM GK lowers.

37lbs per wheel/tire set or just the wheel? If just wheel, it is far from decent, but I seriously couldn't imagine a 16" wheel weighing that much so it must be with tire. They aren't my cup of tea, but it doesn't matter if I would drink that tea. haha Keep doing up your Fit3 as you see Fit.

Where did you buy that steering wheel cover and how does it feel? Is the stiching soft?

Hey SS2282, just read your PM now. Have been busy the past few weeks with work-related tasks.

Ordered the steering cover from Wheelskins as a "Special Order". the size for the LX is [Outside Dia.: 14 1/4"] [Grip Circ.: 3 7/8"]
Do not get the cover for the GD/GE. They are slightly bigger and won't be a good fit.

This covers feels and looks as like a leather steering wheel should. Real USA cowhide!!!!

More pics available on the "What mods........." thread. The factory box is pictured with the exact size that was "special" ordered.

Have installed two of these on 2 Fits. If you want good results, watch their video and set aside at least a couple of hours. Prepare a set of work gloves and get ready to "pull" the thread as tight as possible.

Congrats on your new LX.

Buds, as posted on the "What Mods..." thread, here are the latest!!!!

"Here's add'l stuff added this year.

OEM body colored door mouldings. These fit perfectly. Used a rubber mallet to secure it in place.

OEM storage organizer. Wife got me one (Amazon) last year. Decent, but not that rigid. Ordered this one from Bernardi's (on sale) last Dec. Great quality, folds flat, w/ 3 compartments.

"Drop-stop". Got the idea from my niece last July who installed a generic "made in China" on my previous '08 GD. With a $10 difference (its $20 shipped), decided to get the "original". Glad I did cause is thicker which makes it stay in place better than the thinner "knock-offs".

With my boys home last Dec. they had a fun time driving the GK. Mileage has dropped as they enjoy hearing that V-tec in action, plus driving their friends all over the island. They did comment on how "nice" the doors felt when closing and how much quieter it is compared to our former GD. The 100 lbs. of sound-deadening is getting the job done!!!"
