g7kobayashi : 1993 Accord EX

Hello all,

This is my second CB, bought it from a friend of mine in December.
Car is still under construction but I'd like to share with you all
and am looking for your comments.



*ENGINE BAY / EXHAUST
-Stock F22A6 and auto tranny
Will swap to MP1A in the future.
-Ultra Racing strut bar. (Thanks, Jack.)
-VISION Muffler





*EXTERIOR
-JDM 1-piece Headlights
-JDM Si-T Bumper lenses
-JDM Si-T Foglights
-JDM Amber Sidemarkers
-JDM Si-T Spoiler
-JDM Rear Foglight
-JDM Outer Taillights
-JDM OEM Window Visors
-JDM intersection lights
-G-square grill & eyelid replica (Thanks again, Jack.)
-JDM Sunroof Visor








The moldings were painted white when I got it.



*INTERIOR
-ITR Steering Wheel
-Intermittent wiper (Thanks, Jarrett)
-JDM amber cluster
-JDM cruise switch




*SUSPENSION / BREAKS / WHEELS

Looking good, Johnny. Keep the build pictures coming.

Are the CF4 calipers noticeably larger than the CB7's? I have seen the NSX rear calipers and they look like they could fit with an aftermarket bracket or bracket adapter.

The CF4 calipers say 11CL on them and the pistons are
about 2mm lager in diameter than stock ones.
I have custom made adapters for the NSX rear calipers.

Wow. What an awesome car to start with. That 5 lug conversion and those wheels make it look like it came that way. Very nice progress with the audio too!

Works like this:

cp[mike] is very helpful cp[mike] is very helpful cp[mike] is very helpful
loving it! nice detail, especially on the calipers. I like the wheels and steering wheel. Tan interior is an interesting choice with white, but can't knock it.

I'm going to swap the rims into the ITR's
and that's why I painted the calipers in red.

Yeah Mike, the white Accord base models in Japan even came with brown interior. I'll send you some pictures later. It's actually pretty cool!

In Taiwan, most white CBs came with dark blue interior
and only the 93 "Special Edition" came with tan leather interior.
The door panels have the same design with the SE models in the US.

Check you out! Snazzy NSX brakes and some ITR wheels. I like where this is going!

This thread hasn't been updated for a long time...
Here's some pics I took with my cellular phone today.


ITR rims on, intersections on.




NSX calipers on.


The mirror covers were swapped to DB's.


Power seat from V6 C Accord.

My first thought literally was HOLY FUCK! I love how clean the white is on your car. Would you be willing to sell it to me as it sits?:P LOL. How much did you pay for it?

Thanks for your kind words.
Actually car was covered with dust and need a big wash definitely.

I paid about $3000 for it, came with most of the JDM parts on it.
You can check the 1st post to see the difference.
The most obvious changes are the ITR rims and NSX calipers.

Ahh very very nice purchase for 3k even if it was dirty! I would a ran across the world for a 3k cb7 like that ahahahahaa even though my SE is just as clean OEM though. No fog-lights or intersection lights. This is one of my favorite white cb7's + p5ylance is very hawt too. How many miles does it have on it?
