My 93 Honda Accord LX
 
I figured it was time to post on here, I have been lurking for a couple of years and just decided to join. Here is my 93 LX. The driver's side is rough but the passenger side is pretty clean. Neither of the windows on the driver's side work.

Welcome! You should have flipped the picture of the passenger side; then see if anyone would notice. The fender is fairly easy to take care of, quarter panels not so much. You might send some photos to a paintless dent repair service to see if they think they could undo the damage (you may still have to do some paint work). Lots of potential!

Thanks, I didn't think about flipping the picture. I am trying to fix things here and there and the body is last on the list.

My car had a huge exhaust leak when I got it, it was cheaper to replace the exhaust manifold than repair the factory piece. I have to find a stud kit for my exhaust manifold. I also replaced the muffler to pass state inspection.

Looks good man!! i must agree with Fleetwood, ALOT of potential!!:tu: nice upgrade on purchasing a header than trying to cause yourself misery trying to repair a stock manifold!! I'm also sure you feel a difference in throttle response and sound!! :drivecuss

A little DIY grill I did. I wanted to see how much I would like the way my car looks with a new grill and I like it alot.

Thanks, I don't know how it sounded before because it was so loud with the flex pipe separated I didn't drive it much.

I am planning to replace my suspension, redo my stereo system, engine swap and then body work. I plan on keeping this as my daily driver so everything has to be done in stages.

My car died while I was passing a car on the highway, I don't usually park here, especially in the rain.

same here. im getting the motor fresh now and then cleaning/covering interior and stereo. mines a daily too so small projects at a time. the motor swap will be way later. seen the last post with you on the side of the road. hope its nothing serious. keep posting pics. will be adding to mine once i get time to do the work.

Took my valve cover and upper timing belt cover off and found this.

Naked cam gear...... I figured that was what had happened but I was hoping for something different.

hoopty 07-13-2015 05:29 PM

sorry to hear that. so are you gonna save it or swap? i know you said a swap was in the future.

I pulled the broken timing belt out. Here is what was left of the belt.

I talked to a friend who is a Honda tech (for over 20 years now) and he said just put a belt on it if you can't find evidence of bent valves (loose valve springs). I did and my car started right up. I think I have the timing off by a tooth but it runs.

That sucks. I had changed my timing belt once I saw stress cracks. Good luck on the repair.

hoopty 07-31-2015 06:31 PM

glad to see your back on the road. i changed mine out first thing because i was scared of that happening. it had 104xxx on the dash and never had one installed. keep pushing forward. i will be following this thread.

talonted1990 08-12-2015 06:59 PM

Found these on Craigslist last week before I left for my vacation to Myrtle Beach. I was hoping nobody else would buy them before I got back.

Ended up picking them up when I got back. I am thinking about having them powdercoated because of some damage on one of the wheels.

I spent more than I had planned at Myrtle Beach so I have to wait a little while longer for my 5 lug conversion but I did get some rear hubs.
