Theos92VR4 : 1992 Accord EX

whats up guys! Im back again! Havent been on here in quite a while, but I picked up another cb7 which i plan on building!

CURRENT PICS (top ones are most recent)









/s205.photobucket.com/user/GTOVR41992/media/1992%20Accord%20ex/IMG_6213_zpsj2lmkrn2.jpg.html][/url]




took off the 5 speed emblem since i got tired of it


















Anyhow, i was in the market for another beater, since my other 3 cars are pretty much completely impractical and I refuse to drive them in the snow. So on my way home from work I stumbled across this gem. Originally for sale for $500, talked him down to $350. It ran and drove, but was sitting at a mechanics shop because of a bad fuel line. The shop gave him some ridiculous quote to replace the entire fuel tank and all the lines so He put it up for sale. I fixed the car with a new fuel line (only needed one, and the tank was perfectly fine) for $7, so this is my $357 accord. Its a 92 ex, 5 speed manual with 164k on it

yeah the rust really sucks. I plan on welding in new quarters in the spring, and giving it a full repaint, most likely the later honda white (taffeta)

That's because they're usually so torn and tattered that they're not useful in the first place. They're usually good just for all the little plastic bits, assuming you're willing to have new leather covers made. Or, you can get seats from a newer car and modify the rails to fit. I have '03-'07 Accord coupe seats that are heated black leather. For sedan/wagon owners the sedan of the same generation is an option as well. For the rears you're pretty much stuck if you have a coupe or wagon.

I probably am going to wind up just getting my seats recovered. Unless I can find a vigor or legend with nice black seats, then ill swap them over. but the chances of that are very unlikely as well lol

had some free time today so I decided to work on the accord. Swapped over the leather inserts from the se panels to my panels. Kept the stock burgundy arm rests for some nice contrast. It came out awesome. I really love the black and dark red combination. I think with the burgundy interior you either love it or hate it lol.

So i traded my OEM car cover for a full set of se leather seats. They arent in the best shape, but my friend does upholstery so he is going to fix the split seems when he is off work.





I also installed a new center console (mine was badly broken) New shift boot, legend 5 speed knob, SE black ebrake handle with a del sol ebrake boot

I guess im pretty much updating this thread as a record for myself lol.

had a pretty good run at the junkyard
neuspeed races for $27. Gave them a respray since they were kinda nasty lookin. this was a pretty good score since im doing all new suspension in a few months. Could care less that they are used, springs dont go bad lol.


threw some paint on them

Got a legend COUPE lip. out of all my years junkyarding i have yet to find one. Paid $7

Got tired of my car looking like ass


new fender and hood. Now i have a cappuccino brown/seattle silver/rosewood brown accord. whatever, she will be white in the spring

wheels i got for christmas.

fugen pedals i got off of ebay. suprisingly well made. $20 shipped to my door from CHINAAAAAAAAA

And finally, this will all be getting done next weekend, since my brakes are beyond f'd

New rotors and pads, A&M autoparts new hubs and wheel bearings, honda axle seal,new reman calipers

tackled this on my own on new years eve. It sucked, but not as bad as I thought. You can see how bad the brakes where by this wheel, covered in rust.

changed the leaking axle seal out on this side

And heres what happens when your caliper is seized for a long period of time. Wore out the inside pads way before the outside, car always pulled to the right, etc. Good thing I got new calipers

Picked this up to fix my quarters

decided to see if a hoa emblem fit in the steering wheel, not bad!

Got tired of looking at the white foam on the inside of the seat, so I cut up a spare headrest i had and stuffed some leather in there

Swapped in some odyssey washer nozzles, this is a diy everyone should do. It takes 2 minutes, and makes all the difference in the world

Decided to take apart my fogs, install my newly aquired yellow caps (thank you junkyard, lol) and cleaned them up abit

And finally, one of my favorite pieces I have going on my car. I bought these off a memeber, ol blue, who bought them off another memeber that retrofitted them. These are stock 92-93 headlights with e39 d2s projectors. I took them apart, cleaned them up, then blackhoused them with the yellow hibeams. Im happy with how they turned out

And lastly here are some more parts i aquired. Obx dual tip muffler, 92-93 fogs which i did the yellow cap install to, a new fuel door since mine is cracked, 9006 hid to d2s hid adaptors, a new wheel well, and a test pipe for my new exhaust. I have a bunch more stuff coming in so stay tuned!

closeup of the muffler

i think someone on here did that if i remember correctly. i may wind up doing it eventually if they keep getting rust inside them lol. And thanks, its an OBX muffler. some place on ebay had a bunch of them that they got in as overstock. Think i paid $45 for it

I'd like to hear a sound clip of that muffler once you install it. Is it chambered, or is it a straight through design?
