E-TECH is cool... so far.
New Member from Trinidad (back in the HONDA game)

Hey guys, new member here from Trinidad. After selling my 1993 EX ACCORD back in 2008, I've finally decided to get another one.

After a week or so of searching, I came across a pretty good deal on a blue 1993 CB3 ACCORD, which I bought 2 days ago. It's in an overall good condition but could use a bit of TLC ( perfect project car )

I happened to come across this forum last weekend and I'm really hoping to gather some ideas as to what I can do to make my ACCORD into a mean machine that'll turn alotta heads

Here's a pic of my previous ACCORD days b4 I sold it:


And here's my latest project ( pic taken 2day with my cellphone-plz excuse the quality):


{HOPE THE PIC SIZES AREN'T 2 LARGE}

Hey guys, thanks 4 the warm welcome.

Well, today's 2 weeks since I bought my ACCORD and so far I've just been tackling little mechanical and cosmetic issues that needed to be dealt with.

Here's what I want to do in the very near future:

> Lower & completely redo suspension. For sum reason, the rear of the car is REALLY HIGH and seems like sum bushings and the tie rod ends need replacing.

> Get bigger wheels. Got the car with 15" 6 spoke alloys, which I repainted last weekend, but thinkin bout going 18" racing wheels.

> Change the muffler. Wanna get a nice chrome performance barrel with a mean "purr" to it-lol ( Any suggestions??).

> Change the OEM tail lights. ( haven't yet decided to go "clears" or "black").

> Change headlights. Currently have the "all-in-one" design.

> Change the front grille. Saw a cool mesh grille on ebay that I wanna get.

> Have the car repainted. Wanna go with a lighter shade of metallic blue.

Can't quite think of anything else at the moment, but I'm hoping to get sum gr8 ideas here on the forum.

Keep the one piece head lights and do a projector retrofit.

Well whatever you decide to choose make sure its comfortable and is of quality that way you do it once you wont ever have to look back and spend more unneccesary money in the process. Thats what I learned about cars most of the time pay now or pay later either way your gonna pay lol.
