When I first got it in my junior year of high school from an old, awesome woman who was the first owner (this is after a few small mods):

the summer after my senior year of high school, it started burning a LOT of oil, and eventually one of the rods decided it liked it better outside the motor:

dropped in a remanufactured motor, got the windows tinted, then found some altezzas in a junkyard and tinted them red. I really liked this at the time (still kinda do, and they almost look like old audi quattro taillights)

slowly worked more on the motor

lowered it on junkyard-sourced KYB GR-2's and sprint blues, then bought some 10th anniversary accord 6-spokes and hand-polished them

then I added a 5th gen accord lip, made some fiberglass eyelids and a custom grill, and picked up some Motegi MR-8's. this was taken at one of the Show-Me Showdown carshows at the ducks stadium.

And I built a fiberglass-faced sub box for my trunk:

eventually the red tint started to fade and chip away, and my friend wanted the altezzas, so I traded him trunks, upgrading to the 92-93 sedan trunk.

the car was looking great at this point, but ever since that replacement motor, things hadnt been right. i went through two or three cracked intake manifolds, massive overheating, a broken IM stud, etc, so i decided to swap it out and try to find an H22 originally. unfortunately, the H i picked up had a cracked block and a broken connecting rod, so i swapped plans back to the f-series motor. in the process i decided to clean the bay up a little bit. that little bit escalated quite quickly. My goal eventually became to create the cleanest accord bay in the world. It sounds a bit nuts, but even 8 years later, that will still be the case. This is where the progress mostly died. I got another vehicle, went back to college, then eventually started my adult life. For a while, I'd go back home and work on it, eventually getting the bay painted, but then life happened. It's currently sitting in a storage unit near my mom's house, 200 miles from where I currently live.
