thanks y'all for the compliments. Its coming along nicely. I painted the wiper motor cover and did some spots in the engine bay. I want to tackle the valve cover next and paint it Arcadian green, it should really pop then.


I'm also re-doing the alternator wire, and new door hinges for every door (which is a lot of work as there was rust behind the hinges which needed to be sanded and painted).

looking good, painting the valve cover same color as the car will def look sick :tu:

The VC will be a nice touch.

Nice to see you're doing little details like door hinges.

Raf99 07-18-2012 02:36 PM

Today I finished everything. Finished all the door hinges. Finished the Alternator wire too. Made sure it was crimped, soldered, taped, and loomed. I ran it under the radiator. The only thing left is to find some bolts and those annoying plastic things that hold down the wiper motor cover (I only had 2).

(funny story about the ALT grommet. I went to every store in town (we don't have a honda store/parts; its 30min away), no-one had this thing. I had to go to a junk yard to get one. Even Napa/UAP Auto Parts Ltd. guy said, "nope, they don't do anything anyways". Sad.)

Made a custom bracket to hold the in-line fuse. Looks great but hard to tell from this pic. This pic makes me wanna re-do the whole engine bay, make it nice and smooth.

Ya, the car wash after the first start was the real test. But it was fine. & then I went for a long drive to the Canada East Coast CB7 meet :P let me throw some pics up...

Raf99 07-22-2012 08:15 PM

lol. I'd like to say some couldn't make it to the meet, but there are no others :shrug:. Just 1990[H]accordex and myself. Was nice to finally meet another cb7 in the area!

1990[H]accordex even had a elder compliment his car, noo wait, it was the garden behind it they complimented. They just happened to say it while walking by us and our cars, lol

1990[H]accordex 07-22-2012 08:59 PM

Looking good :tu: loving the pic's of our cars :D

1990exr 07-24-2012 02:18 PM

I figured I would find some kind of a build thread on your accord on here. Never really saw much on lowmo about your car. I didn't know the level of meticulousness and effort you put into making it perfect. I will be tearing into my car next summer to make sure every little detail is perfect like this. The wire tucked bay looks amazing and the javexing of the grill is gonna happen here soon too. Oh cb7accord is my username on lowmo. So thats 2 other people I know from around NS now that are tuning a cb7. We should start a thread somewhere for ns CB7s haha. Still haven't swapped my h22a yet but picking up some things here and there, found someone who can extend my powersteering lines too already, just need my parts argh! ah well in due time. Very clean car you have for sure even the interior is imaculate, mine is not lol, alot of years of stains I have to get rid of, light brown interior sucks haha. Anyway just wanted to complement you on your sharp, clean, not riced out, well put together ride! Nice work :thumbsup:

P.S. Had to edit this when I realized the location of the Member above! 3 people in the ns area.

I think there are a few more than 3 members in NS... maybe we should try and get a proper NS meet going. :shrug:

It would be nice to see what others are doing with their CB7s and see some of these fine examples in person. :tu:
