Hi Nomorenow,

I am inspired by your work on LX. I have to start working on my LX van. Just ordered,
OEM: Splash guards, body side molding, cargo tray
Non-OEM: floor liners, chrome pillar posts

all from ebay.

I have to buy the internal lights, HID kit and backup camera recommended by you.

Thanks

Hi nomorenow, Which seat covers are good, I see there are side air bags on the driver and passenger in the front row. which one are better?
I took some pics for u to see how really looks in the Odyssey. I brought @ amazon $26.95 three colors to choose. Amazon.com: sideless seat cover: Automotive Overall, it's fit pretty well for Sideless seat covers.

Part 3 - Clear Bra Paint Protection Installation

Part 3 Final of the Clear Bra Installation.......
IMG_1429.jpg Now will install the Bumper piece, same thing take it out from vinyl backing sheet. ""And keep-on spaying the 5% baby solution"""
IMG_1430.jpg It's pretty long Bra, you'll need extra hand with this piece, and align it together & center it with the "V" groove .
IMG_1432.jpg Center the "V" groove (the "V" is in center of the bra, just fyi) Work one side at a time & use the hairdryer for contour areas.

IMG_1435.jpg Almost done on one-side with hairdryer ""And keep-on spaying the 5% baby solution"""
IMG_1437.jpg Left is done, now ready to do the right-side with same steps.
IMG_1438.jpg All done with Bumper piece.
IMG_1439.jpg Now the Lower bumper (2 pcs, a Left and a Right) Same steps as above. ""And keep-on spaying the 5% baby solution"""
IMG_1440.jpg Again with hairdryer to work on contours. ""And keep-on spaying the 5% baby solution"""
IMG_1441.jpg Cut the excesses piece that is sticking out.
IMG_1444.jpg Final all installed, Hood, Headlamps, Bumper, and Lower bumpers.

Total time: 3 hrs & 20 mins
Level: Medium to Hard (due to the contour areas , Re-align about 5 times & trimming are necessary)
Cost: $60

Final note: Next day, I noticed the Clear Bra is harden prevent blowing off the easy??? (tested in the Freeway for 90mins), it seem really stay in place once installed. Overall I really it , and hardly notice the Clear Bra is installed from walking by the van. Remember for this installation "patience is the key".

Add Chrome strip to Door handles

I think this one of the last add-on the van, beside the chrome fender trim & the Alloy rims (I'm looking for some OEM Honda's & Acura's in local Craigslist) but not hurry to get it.

IMG_1299.jpg Ordered (Ebay) 4X packs of 15mm wide and 2Meter long (6.5ft) 26ft total. Should be enough for Door Handles & Wheel Fenders.

IMG_1443.jpg Here is before but After Opti-Coat.
IMG_1447.jpg Cut & Trim one side first, Hairdryer was used to install the curve angle.
IMG_1448.jpg One Door handle is complete.
IMG_1456.jpg Both is done, after Cut & Trim **Hairdryer was used to install the curve angle.** and used masking tape hold it overnight.
IMG_1450.jpg Final with masking tape removed.
IMG_1449.jpg another view.

IMG_1497.jpg Overhead view.

IMG_1496.jpg straight view.

Total time: 35mins
Level: Easy
Cost: $14.76 Ebay

Overall: By adding some chrome pieces to the door it does look better. I think EX-L and above only comes with Chrome handles, but I could be wrong.
But hey by doing this I saves a ton $$.

Part 2 - PreCut Window Tint for Honda Odyssey Sunstrip

con't..............

IMG_1515.jpg Making a cut out around the hump.

IMG_1516.jpg Once align, I start off in the center and work the way out, one side at a time.

IMG_1518.jpg Here 95% done, 5% left to squeeze out water. Otherwise will form bubbles in hot days.

IMG_1522.jpg All done! and do final cleaning with foam glass cleaner.

IMG_1519.jpg Pretty much align with pre-cut.

IMG_1523.jpg Angle view.

IMG_1521.jpg Outside view.

IMG_1505.jpg Here is before......

IMG_1520.jpg And here After windshield tint installed.

Total time: 35mins
Level: easy
Cost: $6.49 Ebay - 35% tint

Overall: Once I installed, I noticed right away less glare in eyes without using the visor, since the Odyssey windows is huge,
compare to my Accord.

Another Note: I called local CHP, He said as long no wider than 4inch and is top 4inch should be no problem. He can't promise base on other local police.

Here I found:
WINDSHIELD:
The law allows you to tint the top four inches of your windshield, according to Tintcenter.com. This is known as a visor, and according to California's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), it's legal if it meets the following conditions: it's transparent and nonreflective; it isn't red or amber-colored; and its lettering isn't opaque and doesn't obstruct vision. No other tinting is allowed on the windshield.

Restricted Colors
:
No windows on your car may be tinted "red, amber or blue.
"

great job making your Ody your own.... Where did you find the LEDs for the interior and lic plate?
dizzyman,

The LED's:
The front Map light & trunk they are 31mm Festoon 5050 SMD w/ 12 leds, you need three (3)

The interior , Doors , & Lic plate use........
194, 168, 501, T10 <<<---all the same, just different #'s) 5050 SMD w/4 Led's (blue or White colors), Don't get the 5-SMD's led(too long).

I ordered thru Ebay since is the lowest cost, and not in the rush to get it. (it takes about two weeks).
