Oh wow, that's vinyl tape? Nice work!

I was gonna ask on your other thread if it was plasti-dipped trim (http://www.collegehillshonda.com/product/08F24-T7S-100A.html), but it looked too small... Did you do anything on the rear bumper?
tape runs around the whole exterior. (ignore the si badge, was to trick a friend) the key to striping is keep it Subtle, you can go over the edge and become boy racer very easily....LOL....

That looks amazing! Did you ever do more? I’m looking at doing this as well but with orange instead of red.

No, in my opinion too much tape looks like crap and it’s too gaudy… A single contrasting Swab of color is all I wanted.

See, my gf and I both have HRV’s and unfortunately, even the same color. It’s bothering me so bad lol. I just need to change it up a bit. I was previously considering wrapping ALL the trim in orange until I saw your post. I like it. Although, also considering making the rims orange as well as side mirrors.

You start wrapping too many things on a car and it becomes very apparent that it’s an aftermarket job and you did it after buying the car. I wanted something that looked OEM, like the lower civic r type striping. With the Just a single stripe of oracal/3m, keeping it down low so it is not in everybody’s face, it looks like paint, which is what I wanted.
