AIT roof spoiler fits nicely. Looking forward to seeing it wrapped.

Good looking 01 for a "salt belt" car. The green is going to look good when it's done. I like the rims too. Nice ride.

Got more wrapping done, just have the two bumpers left to do. Got the front bumper back after 2 months in the bodyshop with the fogs mounted. So happy with the way they turned out!

Nice work! Is the grill area going to have to be a separate piece?

Thank you! I'm gonna wrap the grille in black and the rest of the bumper in green.

Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

I do have to ask, how does it handle in the snow with the 17's? Just curious, as I've been thinking about going to 17's on my 99 Sedan. As it is right now, I'm running 15 inch Dunlops on 7 spoke Köenigs, and they're ok for now, but I need to get some real winter tires for it (looking at some Blizzaks or Barums for winter use). Once I do that (have some strictly winter tires), then I'll look into upgrading the other 3 season tires.
