What to do with the stock kidneys?

So I just installed the painted kidneys from jlevistreetwerks (very nice btw) and I have the stock kidneys just sitting here starting at me now. What to do?

Thinking maybe some kind of art piece? I dunno, hate to just pitch em though.

Thoughts?

Eh, I figure the painted kidneys will stay put. Besides they're (relatively) cheap so why not have some fun with them?

Good idea. Thanks! Now to figure out what other colors would go with SGM... let's see, there's black, SGM, and... ?

I should put some little moving lasers in them like you can get for computer cases. Yes, I'm kidding... But it would be fun to have green lasers shooting out the front on a foggy day though lol. Not sure the cops would agree.

Or I could mount giant eyeballs inside them and make it wink when I get behind a hottie... hmm that might actually work out for me.

Donate them to your local hospital. There's a kidney donor shortage.

Who wouldn't love to have lime green laser shooting kidneys implanted?

I bet you would pee rice grains.

Yep, you're on track here. especially the winking idea. haha.

But yeah, you can basically do whatever you want with them. And if you dont like what you did, you can paint over that too. I painted my stock kidneys a dark gunmetal color first, but I didn't put enough clear coat on it and i got a couple chips in it. So now I painted it gloss black and it looks awesome

Its not even a Civic SI or something mildly sporty (not that it would be any better). That's a sedan and I'm 99% certain its his mom's car that he decided to "trick out."

Not sure if you're into the "Time Attack" style, or if it'd even look good on SGM, but give it a try? Could do something like this:

red rim, black grille

I was considering going down the "time attack" road with this. I think it looks really good with JB and AW when done right.

But SGM? I just couldn't see another color really working with it. Has anyone tried it?
