I have been following this thread for the past three years, I love it. I benefited a lot from it. I did many mods to my car. They are mostly simple, I almost learned all of them for this forum. I don't think I executed these mods as well as most of people here, but I am happy with the results.

The car is originally 2008 Honda Accord LX
Here are the list of mods:
1. Leather steering wheel and shift know
2. EX OEM RIMS and GoodYear Performance Touring tires
3. Shark Fin Antenna body colored
4. Body colored splash guards
5. Chrome grill and door handles
6. Odessey grill flush on the outside
7. Trunk lid spoler
8. Yellow Nokya DRL
9. HFP decal on the sides and back
10.Garming GPS internally wired with on/off
11. Relocated axuliray input. iPOD installed with on/off switch
12. All weather matts

Here are some pics (sorry there is a limit of 5). I hope you enjoy:D Again thanks for all your help.

Thanks for the comments. I will post more pics later today. I got the hood protector from http://www.bernardihonda.com/ parts department. I have been dealing with them for three years, and I am very happy with the service.

Really nice, especially with the lower grille.

How did to manage to work around the plate mount? Does your mount have brackets behind it that mounts to the lower grille like it should or is it mounted to the bumper directly? Also how did you mount the grille?

These are the chrome lay-over from ebay. I had them for two years and they are great. Even the dealership could not tell. I paid over 50 CDN for them.

I basically started with the Odessy grill, then cut it to fit. I ony removed the bezel on the ends but the not the top or bottom. Then

Cylinder sander (cost about 4 dollars and mount on any drill) I kept sanding the sides until it fits perfectly. I attached using heavy duty bend ties behind the plate mount area only.

I hope I can explain it. I mad a cut for the spots where the plate mount stikcing out and pushed through the grill. I did not install the two screws that go vertincal. Instead, I used heavy duty bend ties.

Another one responding to a 2+ year old thread and OP hasn't been here in almost as long. Don't expect a response from OP any time soon.

The chrome bits =>
___ ___
___ [H] ___
___ ___

are just chrome inserts into the OEM grille. They can be bought from eBay for quite a low price, and is stuck on using 3M tape I think. The JDM Inspires have a grille with the chrome bits which came factory.
Hope this helps you!
