oh and i forgot to update a long while back:

sideskirt is on wrong side...stupid





painting the kit today
johnboymartin666

it would still look better on mine.
mitsubishiv5

so today i got is washed up, and lightly wetsanded with 400 grit sandpaper. uncovered alot of small chips and some cracks.....but nothing i can't fix. washed it in preparation of fixing some of the cracks and filling in some holes with fiberglass filler and fiberglass sheets. You can also check out how well this bodykit was produced, very strong and durable after 18 years of use(through rain and shine)....of course whoever painted it didnt do such a pretty job...

pics will show the cracks across the bottom of the front air dam, where the car seems to scrape, top end piece of one sideskirt, and rear air dam slighty cracked open underneath.

sideskirts:



before:


after:

Rear air dam:




Front air dam:




my plans are to use the backing and reinforce the slight damage, with fiberglass filler....a few days of filling and curing will do the trick. ill use as little body filler as possible.

anyways. uploading pics.

nice any problems with opening  doors because of the side skirts? i had those issues with the same side skirts
mitsubishiv5

well when it was just taped on it didn't interfere with the door, and i was able to open the door without yanking the side skirts off. sits so close to touching, yet it doesn't. Very Happy

I was searching more info on the kaminari aero kit for 1988-1991 civic sedan, and all of a sudden i see a WingsWest kit that seems to look very identical........here is a link directly to the website.

http://www.wingswest.com/catalog/...-Honda-Civic-4-Door-COMPLETE-KIT-(FIBERGLASS)/product_info.html

@769.00 complete kit

rear spoiler @ 210.00 oem style
http://www.wingswest.com/catalog/...22/80-LED-LIGHT/product_info.html

so this is a "WingsWest" Kit:


Also found a rear wing that is made by WingsWest, looks very similar to the oem spoiler.



I have a question.....So which is the real thing? OR why are they similar?

WTF!? grrr
whoa its len 2

Back in my bodyshop days I remember seeing this kit. Kaminari, Wings West, and Erebuni all produced this same exact kit. WW and Erebuni are replica companies. Not sure if Kaminari is the orginiator though.
mitsubishiv5

im going to look into what kind of info i can find. i know that kaminari parts are pricey, so it may mean its original.... i also bought a decal for my car from kaminari yesterday. support the kit! Very Happy hahaha.
