Looking good, where did you get your kit? OEM garnish or aftermarket?
I posted that picture, like I said if there is no part number, manufacturing date then it's replica, a mold from a mold.No i don't, but i believe inspire08 posted a picture of the back of the garnish with the HONDA >ABS< logo printed on the back of it on the $395 inspire kit shipped thread.
This will explain why it doesn't fit right, I didn't do anything on mine and it fits perfectly. The reflector shall sits about 1mm deeper all the way from one end to the other end.alright thanks for that, so would i have to stuff something on the bottom of the garnish? or under the reflector?
I've found out why the right reflector doesn't look right, its because they added a spacer above the reflector which was suppose to sit in more into the trunk, but its right above the reflector, and that caused the reflector to like settle lower then how its suppose to be, and if you look at the bottom of the reflector in person, its sticking out, they didn't do a really good job installing it..
I don't think so. There is already an existing bolt hole as yellow dot shows. The reflector is sticking correctly.I believe the reason is they didn't cut the template correctly on the chasis, thats why the lights are not flush. Definately not the Garnish itself, if you cut the hole properly the light will be flush with the garnish.
Like I said, the bolt hole that near the tailights is already there, it's not custom drilled. There is no way that you could screw up the cutting at that area that close to the tailights because the bolt hole is already there. And that is exactly the bolt hole that you attach bolt to the garnish.I guess the only way to prove you wrong is MyVtecRoars corrects his installation problem. And this is the template I was talking about
Diy, drill the hole and find another plug. More info can be found from the original thread:can u fit bulb on both these light or just the passenger side.
I found that some place was selling this inspire kit but only had design for passenger side with bulb and the driver side with no hole to insert the bulb....
Typical problem of knockoff, looks good when it stands alone, but don't fit right when you try to align with other parts of the car during installation.I took out another set and installed the Lens on the left to show you the fitment is perfect. That is absolutely an installation error not the garnish.
Agreed, but the tabs of reflectors either go in snugly or not going in at all. We are talking about 1 ~ 2 mm uneven surface between garnish and reflector at the area below the "stanley", not entire seam. IF the reflector don't go in properly, it's gap between the two, not uneven surface between the two.You have to take the whole garnish/reflector out and refit the reflector on the garnish again. Hooking the reflector on the garnish is a bit tricky. The reflector sticking out is probably because the installer didn't fit the reflector on the garnish correctly.
Send it back to your installer, and good luck with the fix. You will need more time and effort to align the parts together.Guys, its a installation error, the whole garnish kinda squeeks when i try to close it too, they didn't install it properly.. I'm going to go back 2moro and have it fixed.. Hopefully.
I hate to point this out, but I do see fitment problem on OP car. He has to adjust it to make it right. This a fact, not assumption.Dude there's got to be 15 to 20 people on this forum who have bought the kit and Not one complained about the fitment.
You are the only one (HikaruAccord) who didn't buy from me and making all kinds of false accusation about the fitment and quality. I am not sure what your motives are, if there is any quality or fitment issues let the buyers speaks for themselves.
Up to this point you still hesitate to provide any picture on the back of the garnish to prove your statement. You mentioned on your ebay listing that, you know your part is Honda original because the first batch you obtained didn't have "HONDA" but the following batch you have do come with it. Ironically, you are actually the one who make the assumption with no proof that your garnish is original without rigid proof, basically failed to provide Honda part number and label like you show on the reflectors.I have not cheated any buyers or made any false statement, they all know what they are getting before buying. If anyone felt they have been cheated believe me they will be a lot worse than you are now. And I am pretty positive that if you did buy from me we wouldn't be having this conversation now and you'll be satisfied like the rest of the groups.
Those foam tapes were used as insulation between two parts, our garnish has those as well all around the edges of the garnish. So when you put the garnish on there is no gap between the garnish and the trunk and it won't rattle as well. The one I got come with these:What is the purpose of the foam tape, and where is it applied? :dunno:Just want to know if it's worth going with OEM. Anyone with an installed 'replica' kit please let me know. Cheers!
