Real OEM Fog/driving lights are impossible to find complete, in good shape and are crazy expensive. Floor mats even harder to find and can be just as expensive, plus do i really want to spend all that money and put my feet on them?
If anyone has any other better suggestions, fire away.

So i think i may just suck it up and go for what looks to be the best
OEM-like alternatives....

APC Fog lights


You can get the fog lights(amber) here http://www.cardomain.com/item/APC505010A

or the driving lights (clear) here

Crx Floor mats


I think this is the HT thread about these mats.
http://honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=988821

Here is a link to the ebay store
http://stores.ebay.com/del-Sol-tuning

Both together can be had for under $100. :)b
The lights list for like $30 with wiring and mats are like $60 or so.

Are those the mats that are sold in an ebay store (for a while now) by someone who originally made them for Del Sols? I've been eying those for a long time, I'll probably get some next spring when I get a new carpet, I don't have any floor mats right now.

Thats what i was figuring since the OEM stuff is getting next to impossible to find and ppl are always looking for decent alternatives.

Thats what i have heard. They look like good quality mats.

i have those mats, i can vouch for the quality.

although if i buy them again (which i may), i'd get them without lettering. since the carpet is so plush, they have to embroider a rectangle down, and then stitch the CRX letters into that rectangle. plus the letters get dirty. they really don't bring anything to the party.

I was one of their first customers and as you can see, I pimped them. I talked them into doing a second gen logo. They are also about 10 miles away from me. After all the business I got them, did I get a discount? Nope. Bastards.

Oh, and the mats wear quickly. Mine shred in no time.

Not good to hear.

Maybe i will just try and find some OEM ones from a newer Civic, since you say that these ones wear fast and finding nice shape, OEM Crx ones is near impossible and expensive.

I have civic mats in my car, they fit fine. Don't know exactly what generation they are, I got them with the car.

But I can imagine it being a little difficult without a supplier. I thought there were a couple of pretty decent floormat manufacturers.
Not for small runs that I could find. I may revisit this. I also looked at manufacturing intake manifold gaskets at one time -- better, less expensive, and for more models than the current sellers.

Plus, I am comparing it against other opportunities with either less effort or greater potential. Who knows. I will look around.

Innovative stuff at affordable prices are ALWAYS welcome to the community.

You know what would make a killing?
Prefabricated taillight gaskets. People are idiots, and don't realise how easy these are to cut out yourself.
I just made some for my car and thought the same thing.

CRX products that would make a killing -

OEM reproduction floormats

Reproduction OEM Stanley driving lights (I know everyone calls them foglights but foglights are yellow like JDM. Driving lights are clear like USDM)

Dual tip quiet stainless exhaust that resembles OEM but better performance.

Reissue of Mugen's original bodykit

Just thought I'd update this thread. The fog lights are now out of stock at cardomain.com and almost everywhere else. After lots of searching, the only place online I could find them at was partsamerica. But they only have the amber ones.

They're cheaper than they were on cardomain! At $17.88, makes me think they're discontinued. My set is shipping as we speak. Also, if you add a few things they have free shipping for orders over $50.
