Armyofone Detailed-my 2006 Honda Civic Ex

Recommended Posts

Ok, so this is my car. As you can tell, I use the best products I can get my hands on. First a little bit of background on the car. Its a 2006 Honda Civic EX (Chassis Code FA1). 44,000 miles. Mods are nothing major, but as follows:

-Optima Red Top Battery

-AVS window VentShades.

-Window Tint: 20% front doors, 5% rear doors and rear windshield.

-Brembo Slotted and Drilled Front brake rotors.

-Hawk HPS Front Brake Pads.

-Custom Ipod Integration (using factory AUX input :word: )

-Blue LED Interior Accent Lighting.

-K&N Drop-in Filter.

-Custom Painted Engine Accents.

-Goodyear Assurance Comfortread Tires in 205/55/16, on factory EX wheels.

-Custom painted calipers and exhaust tip (laugh at the blue tip if you want, its better the the color it was, which was RUST. No matter what I did, it rusted immediately the first winter I had it).

-Chrome Front Liscense Plate frame and Tinted cover.

-Front Plate Flip

I know some of those like the tires, and the liscense plate frames arent "mods" per se, but I like to include them anyway. Well...shall we get started?

J/K. In all seriousness, I went for a ride the other day and got a little muddy, so I needed to wash the bike while all the crap was out. Heres the Car.
