I'm done some thing similar before in the past with a civic headlight. What I did was heatgun the edges on the headlight until I could pull it apart. I then used a piece of chrome vinyl , laid it over the reflector and used an exacto to cut around the shape of the reflector.

They are 20x9.5 20x10.5 +25 all around. I have a 5mm spacer up front to space it out a little but could use another 5mm to get it perfect

I'll give that a shot. Sounds like it would do the job

Not at all, doesnt even drone. At idle you barely even hear the car. It only sounds loud coz I revved it up high. But for daily driving it isnt obnoxiously loud since the car rarely goes past 3k rpm's driving around town

Looking good. The exhaust even chimes when you receive a text message too.

Lol, I was listening to the video on my phone and heard the chime so I got out of the video to check my messages, then realized it was in the video

Amazing progress so far!

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get those muffler tips?
I"m looking to do something similar but maybe with 4" tips.

and would you recommend Super Muffler for their work/prices?

Hey Chris, yeah I had the emblems shaved, welded and filled then resprayed.

There was alot of paint fading on the top of the trunk when I bought the car so I figured I would just shave the emblems while I'm respraying it. Might as well
