Great Looking EX!

Just picked up a set of V codes last weekend from choupique108. Got them cleaned up and painted this week & will install on Saturday. Hope it turns out as good looking as yours!

Still looking for a set of B codes if anyone has a pair.

I swapped out the today

I just finished putting the V codes on the EX this afternoon. Will post some pics tomorrow. I gained about 1.5 to 1.75 of front end "travel" and the EX sits level now with the stock rear springs. The rear was 1.75 inches higer before the V codes.

Took about 5 hours since there were a few "stubborn" bolts, fittings, etc.
