    Hi

    Does anyone know if i can get some lamix for the fogs and headlamps of my current car (Accord Type R)?

    And how do i go about getting some?

    Sorry dont have a clue about these as i didnt think they would suit my A3 but would love some now.

    Finally managed to get a few pics at the openin of a new honda specialist garage (VtecDirect) so may as well post up some pics of the new one (and yes, i know its filthy - will get some better pics up when it stops raining :D )

    As stated here mate. The .co.uk site sells it uncut in sheets and you have to calculate how much you need. The .com site (AKA American site) has a configurator and the stuff comes pre-cut. I can see Honda listed so you might be in luck. Unfortunately our prehistoric work computers don't have flash or whatever it is enabled so I can't check your model.

    Thanks gys for the help but, the light curves, wouldnt that cause some rippling/creasing when i fit it?

    And Staz, thats for the american accord unfortunatly which is different to the accords we have in the UK.

    Hmmm...It's £25 for a sheet which should so both lights so not too bad if i can fit it right :D

    Kaz,

    I recall JamieKip saying that it is fine if you use plenty of the application solution they sell. Another member mentioned the ole heatgun/hairdryer application too, on a low temp to make it more maliable. On the whole though I haven't heard anyone have problems fitting round the curves.

    Aha, well yeah get the sheets from the UK site for sure.

    I did mine a few weeks ago and it was pretty easy actually. I am fairly useless at that sort of thing too. Plus the most time consuming thing was trying to align it to the shape of the light as they're cut to size. You wouldn't have that problem buying a sheet though.

    Curves aren't too much of a problem. Keep it nice and warm with the hair-dryer/heat-gun and it all goes on nicely.

    There's a good thread with instructions from many who have done it here:
