So bit of an update. I bought a prelude steering wheel.

It's much nicer but I need a non4ws centre logo (if you want to trade message me!) I got the clock spring too.

Pics:

And here's the best purchase so far, airbags!can't wait to get an elevel.



If anyone wants to sell me an elevel kit message me

I would so do airbags on a wagon! I can't on my current t wagon. But when I get my 2nd wagon I will!

You got the wagon running again?

It's at a point where it would be running, if it was registered and had ATF. I'm starting to gather parts for a manual swap anyway. I want something reliable. 24 year old auto's just don't have that reliability no matter what. Overtaking is better with a manual, too.

Yeah good point, I have spare parts and a trans if I ever need to convert my wagon to manual.

Will it be hard for you to find 5spd parts since you are rhd?

No not at all, I'll just use mainly 4th gen prelude parts (can buy a running f22 model for 200 with a free spare motor!)

Only hard thing to find might be the cluster, but they swap over left to right and that should be the only problem I have.

Cars back on the road! Even though the transmission has 40'000 more k's it feels alot better, it instantly goes into gear now whereas my old transmission would drop out when decelerating for corners. Only issue is that the front brake line has collapsed so the caliper is staying on (confirmed because I tried my spare prelude caliper and it did the same thing)

Just waiting for my braided lines to turn up and I'll be driving again!

Prelude wheel is wired up, took four washers. It was a breeze to install. Also, the seat belt buckle on accord seats here is smaller than normal ones so I used a spare 4th gen prelude buckle that I had spare, it worked but it's not as long so it's slightly harder to buckle my seat. No big deal as I'm not a big dude.

Just need to adjust the cable on it as it has a hard shift from 2nd to 3rd, and then drop and replace the oil as I've got lots of spare ATF to do the 3x3 method.

The car always used to jerk sometimes under braking so hopefully the new lines fix that!

It has been a long while for me on the forum but your car looks great. I love the sedan bumper and swapped lude steering wheel. I can not believe how clean those cars are that you are finding for dirt cheap. The sedan looks way better than half the Accords I see in philly.

Hope you get the brake line figured out and also get the car registered! Does your country make you have the car inspected for emissions or safety before putting it back on the road?

Here in the states some states have both(emission and safety) while others like Florida never make you bring it back for either.

Most states in Australia do require that, but not my state, which is awesome! The braided lines should be here tomorrow, I suspect that may of contributed to the original transmission failing, I'm sure the brakes constantly being on one wheel would wear the auto clutches out.

So this happened:



Which led to this:



Tein street basis coilovers are honestly really impressive. They're super comfy, better than my stock shocks were, and they let you go low!

Amazing!

Next on the list I think a nice set of 17" work vs-xx.

Hmm.

Still a work in progress.

Car is still damaged but hopefully parts will be on their way soon.

As a bonus have a picture of my Integra with my friends z32 the other day.

Alright, last little update, I promise everything from here will be more substabtial!

I threw the eurolines on today, and lowered the teins as far as they would go. I need smaller tyres. My new wheels will hopefully have about 25mm more poke. Should have a good fitment. I need a front lip and side skirts soon.

I also installed a new keyless system, and an auto window closing module. Two cool things came of that: 1. When I hold down the unlock button for 3 seconds, my interior lights come on (great for night entry) 2. When I lock the car all windows and sunroof closes

It's pretty straight forward so I thought I'd show off the remote because I like how simple it is.

Nice suspension! The car looks pretty good with the Eurolines on it.

Okay so here is a bit of an update.

1st. I've moved house, new garage with a better work space. It's smaller but better.

2. Eurolines are gone. Got over them. Running on stockiest right now.

3. All cars are sold except the wagon.

4. I've decided I'm doing a manual h swap -> picking up a 4th gen prelude very soon, all CB accord specifics have already been purchased.

5. I've installed some sweet usdm foglights (thanks Deev!)

6. I also installed eBay weather visors

I'm sure there is alot Ive missed but I'll throw some pictures up soon because they say more than I can

Here's some photos of cool new stuff.

Genuine 1pc Impul rs. Getting repainted black with yellow rs stickers. 17x9+38 r, 17x8+32 f. Fitment seems perfect to me on maximum lowness on my tein coilovers. I think I'll remove one of the collars from the rear to try and even the height out.

Don't have a shot of them on but here are the wheels I'm going to restore


Here is the manual centre console I'm restoring




And here is the prelude:




Coming up : h swap.

Interior repair.

DCC conversion.

Sick wheels.

Hell yeah boys it's on

I need to go through and update this thread but here's whats happened since:

Removed the locking collar and cars nicely level now. H22 swap is completed with a p72 ECU with better power delivery and CEL's fixed and I/h/e done, lightweight flywheel, upgraded clutch, removed bs belt, various maintenance bits. Manual stuff all transported. Rear dent has been KINDA repaired. Not perfect but good enough for a home job. It accidentally hit the wall of my garage before so had to fix it this time.

Installed new audio and amps as well as sub control.

Still working on the wheels.

Oh and I bought a 1.8L na mx5.

On the way is various OEM parts to fix minor issues, chrome cluster trim rings and a cd5 map light. Also painted the h22 cover black.

Here's some pics:

I'd be seriously interested if importing on my own wasn't such a massive undertaking.
