sweet, looks great. And with all your additions, it can feel like a new car again. Best of luck the second time around.

Your ride looks really good. I've never seen any RX with a bumper guard. Do you mind sharing where you got it?

Thanks.

U'll find lots of stuff here. I'm planning to buy the running board. But it may be too much for the car.

i'm not feeling it for the rear bumper guard, although i understand why you installed it. imho, i'd rather get the side running boards over the rear bumper guard. but congrats on your mods.

Haha to be honest, bumper guards are ugly. But i'm in Boston, this gives me a lil bit piece of mind.

The bumper guard is one of the least offensive ones I've ever seen. I don't think it looks bad. And to save it from bumper rash makes it worth it.

Not a huge fan of the chrome door trim, looks like it came from AutoZone. But everything else is pretty good.
