Laviathan222 is cool... so far.
Finally bought the accord I've been looking for :)

Finally found it a cb7 rust free 5 speed coupe, in the mn area that's sure rare haha! She needs some work though I've had it for 3 days and I've already painted it, fixed the loopy idle (although it came back today) bought some ex wheels for 30 bucks and got some decent tires for free, it needs an axle, pretty much an entire interior, seats are shot door panels are spray painted tan and missing the cloth and fabric, turn signals for the bumper, actuator for the seat belts, oh and it needs to be slammed! Haha

Angry

Yeah for sure! Last accord I had was a cb7 4 door but was rusty... When I seen this one for 1300 I had to jump on it... But after seeing how the guy spray painted stupid shit and it needed a little more work than I thought I couldn't pay 1300 for it so I offered 850 and he took it. Here's some pics of the stupid pointless spray painted stuff he did... FACE PALM!





Oh and when I swapped the wheels I noticed spray painted springs an struts red and spray painted control arms strut forks etc... Silver...

and as for right now i wasnt going for a show room quality car, but as you can see with the enginge bay steering wheel door panels etc... you can imagine what the exterior looked like, it had pounds of gloss and flat black spray paint on it and it looked like complete garbage, it looks 100 times better now which is what i was going for, wish i had taken before pictures... haha

thats my thinking some people just need not own vehicles, i had to buy this one to remove it from its old owner and give it some dignity, the door panels and rear sides and parts of the headliner are spray painted tan as well... im gonna attempt to clean them up and dye them with interior dye... future plans... i got a set of 17's i gotta pick up, planning on slamming it, maybe delete the factory spoiler not sure yet, and rebuild the motor... she smokes a wee bit (not enough yet to consider going into the mosquito/bug deffoging business)

Kinda makes me wonder about the past owners of this vehicle... there is a beauty and the beast childrens sticker in the passenger back window... South carolina troopers association sticker on the drivers side back window... there was writing covered up with the tan paint on the inside only things i could make out where "BLOOD FOR LIFE" and "GANG" WTF?!?! and the random red and blue spray painting... little detective work on my part but just interesting assuming in my head what these other owners could have been like... haha
