Finally!! I'll post. ..RHD

Ok now that I'm off work for 6 weeks ill get to posting. .2nd account and never posted.

Alright guys in Travis from Boise, ID
Im on my 3rd cb in about 12 years, 4 door lost in divorce and a coupe that was crashed, I'm now on my coupe that'll I'll keep.. to much going into it to sell. ALL WORK DONE BY ME** I believe in built not bought

I bought it and with in a week or so i swapped my h22 into it. Here's a run down of what's been done and what is on it (or will be)

Not sure where to start. ..

F trans blown (h going in now)
All painted to look pretty!!
Sedan trunk with red/clears
Went spc camber kit cause i hate camber and being stupid low

Now for the major transformation after above was done..

Oem coupe visors
Arm rest
Full clip* fenders with side markers
Hood
Bumper
And core support (usdm was messed up)

Still bought jdm 1pc lights that i made black housing amber corner and yellow high beams (2nd set on the way, cause i want a virgin set)
JL oem flushie rep
JL G square grill rep
And bought a chargespeed grill recently too
2 parking poles with harness and switch (only using one)
Intersection lights on the way as well
Rhd rubber dash mat
Full shave and wire tuck engine bay
5lug swap

Add-ons coming soon...

That sounds excellent,

But I do not understand why people bother converting cars to rhd.

It doesn't make the car JDM.

It just makes it harder to drive in a LHD country.

It seems pointless to me?

Idk, is there something I'm missing?

The ones who convert are the ones who are car junkies imo... we love the car and want to be different, after all only a handful over here are rhd. Its not something you see here. Civic, integra, skylines, those are all more common rhd then the accord imo* i did it because i can, i found the clip, wanted it and got it. Never once said doing it makes it a jdm car.. Its not hard its fun to drive. But what i think you are missing is, I BUILT MY CAR OUT OF PASSION AND NOT FOR YOUR APPROVAL... to each his own, right?

It's as pointless as modifying a 25 year old car. The only reasoning needed is just because.

I think you should go J. You are already different and seem too have that mentality. Motors are cheap and plentiful at least

IDC what you do to your car,

I was just wondering if there was any point to it, at all.

To me, it seems to be pretty unsafe.

But I'm not going to tell you what to do with your car.
