Yeah I know but it's a sedan lip so until I find a coupe lip it's gonna look a little weird. I still don't understand why Acura would make the front bumper for the sedan shorter than the bumper for the coupe.

So, if I lower the price on the lights you'll give me the lip? Looking good BTW!

Thanks. The hood dampers are from another legend I found. It was a coupe but sadly it had no front bumper so no coupe lip for me...

You have to drill two holes, one into each hinge, thread it and then it should bolt right in. There's a DIY on it.

Hopefully I should be able to get those blackhoused headlights off of ya soon.

With all these basic mods I feel like while setting myself apart from stock I'm starting to blend in with all the other lightly modified Accords (i.e. legend lip, blackhoused healights, etc.). Once I acquire all the common upgrades/parts it'll be time to start setting myself apart more. Hopefully I'll be repainting my hood in gloss high-heat paint so that'll change things up a bit. I'm pretty sure I'm the only one with white offset stripes on their hood.

yeah.... and im the only douche with a whie door and bumper with my name printed on it....

See if autozone has a tap and die set they'll rent out. usually for tools you pay a deposit and then get it all back upon return. It's worth a shot. and you could do most of it in the lot right there.

Didn't think about that. I'll give that a try tomorrow. I gotta get my tools from my dad's place... I'm so limited to what I can do because I don't have all my tools.

Good news. Loan is going thru either tomorrow or Thursday and the loan amount was more than I expected so I should be set with all my bills and traffic tickets so I can get back to working on the car! Hopefully I'll be able to take care of my oil leaks for good.

Should be rocking blackhoused headlights by the end of the week!

Idk, whenever my dad finishes the epoxy garage floor coating and gets all his tools back into the garage.

Just installed my legend hood props today. Unfortunately they're only strong enough to hold up the hood... I guess I'll pick up some new ones from autozone or ebay or something like that. Other than that I love them and they look cool. Pics soon.

I meant to say they're not strong enough to push the hood up. They'll hold the hood just fine but it wont push the hood up from closed.

!!LOTS OF PHOTO'S!!

Took some pics of the hood props tonight after the rain died down.




And I finally got around to taking my seat covers off. I'm sick of not being able to use my armrest and having to adjust the covers all the time to actually cover the seats. If anybody wondered what my interior looks like well this is it:





That's what years of sitting out in the Florida sun with no tint or car cover will do to a leather interior.Discolored and cracked leather FTL.

Recently changed the spark plugs in the CB. It was definitely time!
