1990Blackcb7 is cool... so far.
Smile 1990 Black Accord Nate

This is when I first got the car in 2011 for 800 bucks.


Decided to sand down the car for new paint.


I bought new rims for the car to replace the ugly ones.

Paint was bad all around!

There was a small dent on the hood. I found a hood at the junkyard for 25 bucks

New hood was put on, and It was almost ready for paint

Ready to Paint!

I decided to go with black. I also replace the front bumper with a newer year accord, and also bought new bottom signal lights to go with it. Also the Acura Legend lip was added last minute.

Here's a shot at night

All Clean

Love the way the front looks now

Compared to this!

Progress from 2011-13

Yup pretty much it for now. I got most of my ideas for this car on this website
The cars engine is all stock, has 217,000 miles on it, and I put in a new transmission last year, and the engine got rebuilt in 2011. I changed out the radio with a kenwood and kenwood/infinity speakers ( All four speakers were blown when I got the car). All the little mechanical problems I fixed over time and the car runs sweet now

Looks awesome! Nice job, black looks great. 1990-91 lights grill fit well with the 9293 bumper.
Hope the other way is true, going 9293 lights and keeping my 9091 bumper.

Keep on going with her!

Dude that looks nice! Turned out really great. Did you paint it yourself?

I'm now going to consider swaping my bumper to a 92 93 in the future

I had a 90 coupe. Love the 91 wag bumper, I never liked the 9293 bumper til I owned one.

Please tell me u still have the 14in swirly wheels. They r kinda rare, they r dealer asked optional wheels. Just like my double 5spoke wheels. If u didn't ask for it. U didn't get it!

The blk does look good. Just the door jams and the rest of the car will b blue. I like oem matched colors. I'm not 100% sure if cbs even came blk.

Granada black pearl was the paint name if I'm correct. It was available on all years, tho very rare to see. At least from what I've seen it's rare.
