Default EZ Lip installed on my 07 Accord

I got a bunch of scratches, even where the paint is partially gone, on the bottom of my bumper after lowering my 2007 Honda Accord EX-L, & just put on an EZ Lip (front lip & side skirts), which will hopefully protect it from now on. Just posting this here to give something back to the forums that Iíve used to help me out countless timesÖ so hereís some pictures for anyone whoís been thinking about this product, or anyone looking for a body kit but couldnít find anything (I canít find any kit anywhere and Iím not paying several hundred dollars for one either). I also couldnít find pictures of it on my car, or any 7th gen Accord, to see how itíd look. So hopefully this helps someone out there.


Short installation instructions/tips:
I installed it last weekend. For those wondering, it has to be installed in about 23 degree Celsius weather (it was 21 when I did it), and youíll need a heat gun or blow dryer, which I HIGHLY recommended, to warm up the tape (and possibly the body of your car if you want). It took about an hour maybe, after cleaning and drying the bottom of the car, but I really took my time. Before starting though.. Iíd recommend you put it against your car to see how youíd want it to look, because you want to hide the tape and also plan on where youíd like the lip to end exactlyÖ

So after cleaning the areas, peel back the red cover on the tape, and heat up a foot length of the tape at a time for about 30 seconds, then the body the car for a few seconds, and slowly apply the EZ Lip. Once you start, itís easy, just follow the outline of the car, and heat up the tape & car as you go. If you screw up at all, itís easy to just pull off a small section & keep going. Once youíre done one section though.. I had trouble cutting off the extra at the end of the EZ Lip that extended beyond the body.. mostly because I used the worst scissors in the worldÖ but eventually it worked out. Thatís the only complicated part.


As for the actual product itself, Iíve only had it on for a week. I didnít mind the look of it not being shiny, but if you want it to be (and I did), apply tire shine to it and it looks amazing. I like the way it looks on my car and so has everyone else so far.. not that I really care, I just want something to protect the front bumper & this looks like itíll work if something happens. Lots of MASSIVE pot holes and ridiculous ramps to parking lots in TorontoÖ. Also, I donít think itíll just fall off at any point randomly (the tape is really good)Ö even if it scratched against a curb or something it would just easily bend, and bend itself back, which you canít have with a real body kit.


Also, if this is the wrong place to post this, someone please move it. I also know you canít see much from some of the pictures but itís the best I could do for now due to the weather & limited time..

Looks great man! Im digging the way your car looks! I have a 06 same color.

where did you get those headlights? I am looking for some like that! did you have to do anything different when hooking those lights up or do you just put your existing bulbs in the unit and your good?

I really want to get some of those headlights but I dont know what it takes to install them?

also where did you get the fogs and how do you hook those up?

Car looks sic man I like the way the EZ lip looks! good job!

Thanks!
The headlights are stock, but retrofitted TL projectors on the outside, and FX-R on the inside (high beam). Don't do that though, the TLs are way too big so there's a mountain of problems with the lights. I have to re do them with either FX-Rs only or a mix of those and Morimoto mini. Best place to start is theretrofitsource.com.

The problem is some random guy did mine first and butchered them, then someone else fixed them up but it's too difficult to fix.. so I'll be selling off the TLs and FXR projectors as is, or whatever people want them for soon. They'll be taken out of the housing (not selling the housing cuz there's problems). Anyway that website tells you where you can either go to, or send your lights, or buy a new pair of lights and they can do a custom job for you.

The fog lights are from a Ford Fusion, got them from some guy on some forum can't remember where, but they only work for me cuz I used to have those cheap fog lights from k2motors or whatever it's called and used their housing, and put lexan glass in front of those projectors.

I didn't hook any of those up myself, a retrofitter here did it. They all require d2s bulbs and ballasts, etc. Check out that retrofit website it tells you everything.

No problem. The lowering springs are Tein Comfort Sport.. bought from here:

Tein Suspension CST Coilover-Damper Kit, 04+ CL9 Acura TSX GSA42-K1SS3 - HeelToe Automotive
Yes it's for the Acura TSX 04-08.. spring rates are about the same & the fit is the same. I have 0 complaints about them, and they're comfortable. Bought it from there too, with the EDFC (you'll want this).. however it's updated now & looks way better than what I have.... You'll also need the Ingalls camber kit. I'm 100% sure about that because I needed it.

EDFC Active Controller kit (For use with EDFC Motor Kit), EDK04-P8021 :: Suspension :: Acura TSX 2003-2008 CL9 :: HeelToe Automotive

TEIN USA | PRODUCTS | EDFC ACTIVE

There's also apparently a GPS kit that adjusts the EDFC for you.. but I don't know anything about it and I don't have it. Either way the springs are cheaper now than what they used to be...

Not sure if you need the camber kit if you only get springs. You can Google that.. I spent a thousand hours googling everything for my car. I did get coilovers over springs though cuz I didn't like how I couldn't choose the ride height with springs. I think, not sure, that if you get springs you still have to deal with your factory shocks, etc, and the ride won't be as comfortable... but you should find people who got springs instead, see what they say. And btw those coilovers used to be about $2000, not including the EDFC, or camber kit. Also if you can find other people with lower prices, heeltoe's owner will likely give you a discount, especially if you get the camber kit, etc. He did for me.

What is EdfC and what does it do?

I would eventually like to get a coilover setup but I do not have that much money right now.
that is why I was wondering about the lowering springs because they are the cheaper route. I just want to put lowering springs on my stock shocks and lower it about an inch and a half. But eventually I would like to get it way lower than that

It just changes the softness/hardness of ride. You can change it as you drive. Which way you go is up to you.. I suppose you could sell your used springs off to someone after... or you could just look for someone who might be selling those coilovers? (or lowering springs)
either way just look on the forums for what people prefer, that's what i do..
