Project Coupe Lx

It was time to say good bye to the ol rust bucket. And hellooo miss coup. I loved the sedan but there was so much rust on her from jersey it would of coast way to much in body work. So I was in the market for a shell when I came across this Lx with some extras that I couldn't say no to. Fogs, skunk2 coilovers, arm rest, hasport motor mount and a couple of other things. Being that this was my daily I only had the weekend to swap the motor and tranny from ol rusty. So I was in a rush and cut corners here and there. its not perfect but im happy with it for now. Let me know what you guys think.






Spray Painted the bay



and valve cover

Got rid of the clears and went with amber

Painted the rims white

I asked about the wheel size in the other thread because I wasn't sure whether I was looking at 17s. Last time I remember seeing 18s on a CB they looked way too big for the car... and that was on a wagon, which really needs the bigger diameters for visual balance. Coupes especially exaggerate the size of certain wheel designs, but yours dont really look out of place. It honestly surprised me. So nice choice there. I'm also really digging the white, it's a color the sedan and wagon dont pull off as well imo.

Must be fun to have a new car that's so clean and has H power right away!

Thanks im glad you guys dig it. I've noticed that the 18s looked bigger on the coup, but after painting them you dont notice that much and it really put the car together. Think ill rock this look for a while and get some light weight 17s in the future. Oh I had my share of fun with the H when it was in the sedan lol. But now it looks pretty while im doing it lol.

I like what you did with the bay. The wheels look good as well. Especially at that height.

My only suggestions would be to ditch those obnoxious HIDs (or add projectors), and replace those garbage coilovers with something safer!

Thank you. I like the HIDs personally, but would jump on some jdm one pieces if I ever had the opertunity. Why would say you that these coilovers were any less safe then say some fnf type 2. Which seems to be highly recommended. What would you recommend to the safest and best all around suspension? Thanks again and I appreciate your input.

Skunk2's coilover sleeves are essentially no different than any generic $30 sleeves you can buy on eBay. Skunk2 is not a suspension company. The shocks they sell to go with their springs and coilovers aren't even valved correctly to handle the spring rate and height. They are unsafe, poorly made garbage. Only sold and "respected" because they have the Skunk2 name on them, which is a shameful move on Skunk2's part. Skunk2 never bothered with Accords anyway.
Do you happen to know what shocks you have on there?

As for F&F... they're popular because they're relatively inexpensive, and everyone SAYS they're popular. Personally, I'd rather buy my suspension components from a company that actually engineers and manufactures their components, rather than simply ordering them from some unknown factory in China or Taiwan in their choice of color.

As for the HIDs, you may like them... but oncoming traffic does not. HIDs in stock housings produce a LOT of glare. It's annoying to younger drivers that get blinded by them briefly. It's downright dangerous for older drivers that actually lose their nightvision for a few seconds after being subjected to that glare. I've been in this scene since I was 21. I am now 35. Not old... but when some ricer with HIDs in stock housings blinds me, I can't see a damn thing for the next 30 feet or so. Even when going just 25mph, that's enough time to hit a pothole, a dog, a deer, or a pedestrian. I can't imagine how much worse that would be if I was 50. Or 65.

Good input bro. Ill have to do some research before upgrading the suspension. I feel you on the HIDs, ill look into something safer. I got my first cb when i was 18, this will be my 3rd now that im 30. I learned through trial and error for the most part, but this site has been a big help.

I had to correct the spelling in the title... it was bugging the hell out of me. Carry on.
