Yup. Your execution looks far better than I thought it would, but still not what I'd want.

it would've been perfect if u would've kept the same color for the background. just add the Si on. Blue looks good if the rims were the same color or something.

Very well done!! did u add the Si as stickers or something or is it all paint?

I looked everywhere for "Si" decals to no avail. Somebody suggest that I use the window decals found at ClubSi. (I had to cut away some extra wording with a razor blade.)
As far as the paint and gloss goes, the paint came in a spray. I ordered it from a paint company in New Haven, CT using the Honda paint code. The caps are the same gloss at the car. It's just tough to see in the crappy pics.

I got the decals here: http://roadcatalogs.com/store/club_si_store.html

The decals say: "Club Si.com" so you have to cut the "Club" and ".com" from the decals with an exacto knife.

Well, the current Si emblem record is now set at 6 for the exterior. You may want to look at Morvix's car, and add some on the doors too.
