When I first got it in my junior year of high school from an old, awesome woman who was the first owner (this is after a few small mods):

the summer after my senior year of high school, it started burning a LOT of oil, and eventually one of the rods decided it liked it better outside the motor:

dropped in a remanufactured motor, got the windows tinted, then found some altezzas in a junkyard and tinted them red. I really liked this at the time (still kinda do, and they almost look like old audi quattro taillights)

slowly worked more on the motor

lowered it on junkyard-sourced KYB GR-2's and sprint blues, then bought some 10th anniversary accord 6-spokes and hand-polished them

then I added a 5th gen accord lip, made some fiberglass eyelids and a custom grill, and picked up some Motegi MR-8's. this was taken at one of the Show-Me Showdown carshows at the ducks stadium.

And I built a fiberglass-faced sub box for my trunk:

eventually the red tint started to fade and chip away, and my friend wanted the altezzas, so I traded him trunks, upgrading to the 92-93 sedan trunk.

the car was looking great at this point, but ever since that replacement motor, things hadnt been right. i went through two or three cracked intake manifolds, massive overheating, a broken IM stud, etc, so i decided to swap it out and try to find an H22 originally. unfortunately, the H i picked up had a cracked block and a broken connecting rod, so i swapped plans back to the f-series motor. in the process i decided to clean the bay up a little bit. that little bit escalated quite quickly. My goal eventually became to create the cleanest accord bay in the world. It sounds a bit nuts, but even 8 years later, that will still be the case. This is where the progress mostly died. I got another vehicle, went back to college, then eventually started my adult life. For a while, I'd go back home and work on it, eventually getting the bay painted, but then life happened. It's currently sitting in a storage unit near my mom's house, 200 miles from where I currently live.

i know you do, typeG, you inspired the work in my engine bay and i have learned a lot from your DIY's. however, being in college, i dont have any time to polish anything except on breaks, and then i see my girlfriend back home! looks like i have to wait until at least christmas to do anything. when i do, though that valve cover and a few other things will SHINE.
on a related note, how do you sand large surfaces? i have used the dremel sanding method on parts of the valve cover, but that takes forever. right now i am hand sanding everything, and would like some arm stregnth left afterwards.

i usually use an orbital sander where ever i can. that kind of sander is the easiest way to see if you have sanded away all the pits and uneven surfaces.
i wouldn't go any courser than 320g. then just work your way up from there. later.

forgot my brake setup: Street Heat cross drilled rotors and Raybestos ceramic pads.
i was having a huge problem with fade on the way home from work (20 miles of curvy, hilly country roads at 70-80 mph will kill stock brakes (and did in 10k miles) so i got these and i have never felt them fade (still have the stock drums though, need to change that!).

thanks guys, i do what i can.

joe, i have the pics and they look pretty good, but i dont have a fast enough connection anywhere to upload pics right now. they might be up monday, but the 7th or 8th at the absolute latest, thats when i get back to school and back to the sweet fiber optic connetion.

cb7pr, no thanks man, when i get the new pics up, youll see how good it looks on bare steelies, im just trying to find some 2" electrical knock-out caps like in the DIY section for the hub-holes.

Stay tuned, i am in the process of building a fiberglass sub box, while still retaining (some) trunk space, as you read this.
