The Color is Midnight Twilight Blue Metallic, I love the color. Now I have to go back to the paint shop to get a panel of it painted again because some gardeners hit it with rocks with their edgers so the gardening company is going to pay for it. They left some pretty big dents in it but the paint shop is going to fix that for me:)

I took off the valve cover before I painted it. It was pretty easy I just took off the 5 screws that held it it place took it off, sanded all the dirt and grease away with 220 grit sand paper cleaned it off, taped all the holes up and painted it with Engine Enamel from kragen then i put it back on and tightened all the screws down in the correct order with the right torque specifications from the manual to make sure I didn't break one off.

seat covers become loose eventually and suck

Yea I painted it all myself, it turned out pretty good. The valve cover turned out really professional looking, I'm thinking about hand-painting the letters HONDA on the valve cover black or white so that it will stand out.

Just search on ebay for honda racing seat covers. They fit pretty good on my seats when I put them on.

I would go with a tuner type of wheel: Enkei, Konig, Volk, etc. whatever you do don't get all chrome, chrome rim with black or gunmetal spokes looks good.

Agreed, white is bad on silver, and CIvic's shouldn;t wear chrome. ;) Keep up the good work with the ride though and good luck in Dec!
For wheels look into Rota and Konig, unless you have a big budget, then look into Volk or Advan.
