Island Motorsports Headlights and Corner Lights

Install Time: 45 Minutes
Difficulty: 2 out of 5

TOOLS NEEDED: Ratchet, socket (10mm), Phillips head screwdriver

Because the Civic is our clean street car, we had little more emphasis on the exterior styling than the other two cars. The first things to get tossed headlights. We picked up a set of smoked clear headlights and corner lights Motorsports for just over $100. They make a big difference in styling, and for so little money.

VIS Carbon Fiber Lip

INSTALL TIME: 45 minutes
Difficulty: 3 out of 5

TOOLS NEEDED: Drill, drill bit, ratchet, socket (10mm), wrench (10mm)

Keeping the clean theme going, we decided to pick up a carbon fiber front lip spoiler from VIS Racing. It s not too wild or crazy looking, but still adds a nice touch to the exterior of the Civic.

VIS Carbon Fiber Hood

INSTALL TIME: 20 minutes
Difficulty: 1 out of 5

TOOLS NEEDED: Drill, drill bit, wrench (12mm)

The VIS Racing carbon fiber hood also makes for a fast a huge difference in appearance for the Civic. The is white makes the black carbon fiber hood stand out but we opted not to pick a hood with vents or scoops because that's not looking for. Also, our little D16 motor isn't making enough power to get hood.
