The Honda Civic: The Car that Created a Sub-Culture
It's no secret that Honda created an entire sub-culture in the 90s and that
the Civic was a huge part of that. Along with the Acura brand (another of
Honda's creations) which introduced the world to Japanese performance via
the Legend and Integra, the Civic and CRX virtually defined JDM youth car
culture for over a decade. And even though today's Civics are a lot more
refined than the hatchbacks of old and more likely to be carrying a family
of four, there are still thousands of people who are dedicated to modding
and restoring old school Hondas by any means necessary.
Yellow Headlight Tint: The Telltale JDM Mod
For those of us who grew up in the 90s, yellow headlights scream JDM. Due to
changing laws, however, it has become increasingly hard to find OEM or even
aftermarket lights that come in yellow. The solution? Rvinyl yellow
headlight tint wraps of course! Jeffrey has done a ton of work on his
classic Civic HX as you can see from the pics (you can just see his body kit
and grille upgrades in the photos) and the results really are to die for.
Wraps or Precuts
As you can see from the extreme close-ups, the yellow smoke tint is a perfect
match for the old school OEM yellow and, when installed correctly, is
completely smooth and seamless. In this case, Jeffrey chose to use our uncut
rolls of yellow headlight tint film although we offer precut versions as well.
In the end, the choice should really depend on your level of comfort and skill
in working with Rvinyl tint films but, whichever you choose, you can expect to
get the same fantastic results.
Purple Taillight Tint
Where else but at Rvinyl will you find purple taillight tint film? I
honestly can't think of anywhere else but if you can find the same
high-quality tint at the low prices we offer then, by all means, go for it.
Since we're pretty sure that we've got a lock on quality, style and
affordability you may just want to peruse our wide selection of headlight
and taillight films like Jeffrey did when he was trying to figure out how to
personalize his ride on a budget.
Before and After: Wrapped Civic Taillights
In the photo above Jeffrey had not yet covered over his reverse light with
the purple smoke wrap. Honestly, I would have kept it this way for safety
considerations but it just may be that this is a show car and not his daily
commuter. Either way the fact that he used purple tint wraps meant that he
was able to fully customize the tint coverage, a fact which he took full
advantage of later as the following photos show.
Thank You Jeffrey!
As you can see, Jeffrey completely changed and upgraded the look of his Civic HX
for under $40! Better yet, because he submitted his photos to us for a rebate
he's getting up to a $20 refund back. Pretty sweet deal isn't it? So, if you
have photos laying around send them in today or just use our convenient upload
