fleetw00d : 1993 Accord LX

Wagon summer 2017 by Paul Kemme, on Flickr

ENGINE
- Stock F22A1, 231,400 miles
- Stock automatic transmission
- OEM exhaust

EXTERIOR
- Stock, NO rust
- Sedan front bumper, EX front lip

INTERIOR
- Stock maroon cloth

SUSPENSION/WHEELS
- Bilstein front shocks, otherwise stock
- OEM 6 spoke wheels
- Yokohama Avid Envigor 195/60R15 tires

AUDIO/ELECTRONICS
- Stock AM/FM/Cassette w/ working power antenna

FUTURE PLANS
- No mods planned, just hoping my son keeps it in one piece while at college. I have an OEM single CD player that I'd like get repaired for it.


I've owned this since 2009? Purchased it in FL when two of my daughters were in school there; it has spent most school years there, then a couple years in TX until my daughter hit a curb and bent much of the right front suspension and cross members. Sad tale here: http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=207733

She bought her own vehicle earlier this year and I had the wagon shipped home so I could repair it. I cleaned up the wheels that were originally on Emmy (93 EX coupe wrecked in 2012), then spent 4 years on my 93 EX sedan (which may be for sale soon).

Not too much going on with this. My son had it at school and is now working for the summer near Indianapolis. Installed new B pipe last weekend - looks like the muffler is on its way out as well. Installed hood from a parts car - only has some nicks vs. rust spots on the one I took off.

New fuel door (kids cracked it during the winter trying to get it open when frozen) from AZaccord - including painting to match! Ain't that a thing of beauty?


8/1/2017: Finally put it on the car a week ago. Car turned over 240,000 miles last week. Check engine light came on a couple times - codes 7 and 9. TPS and #1 cylinder position. For the time being, I pulled and reconnected all the connectors; cleaned a little oil out of the distributor. I have a spare throttle body and distributor if they come back.

Dec. 18, 2017: Codes came back, the Code 9 now coming on almost immediately when starting the car; couldn't it have waited a few weeks until they were home? Made a run in Ruby to Pensacola, FL, over Thanksgiving weekend to install a new throttle body and distributor to address the codes 7 and 9 before my son and daughter attempted to come home for Christmas. On the way home last Thursday the idle started surging. Checked all vacuum lines, installed new o-ring on FITV piston, swapped IACV because I had one, still surging. Finally got around to listening real close and could hear the vacuum leak - check the simple stuff first - the idle screw was backed way out (virtually no resistance to rotation). Installed new o-ring on the screw - problem solved. She's now at about 244,500.

Those are survivors. They were originally on a 93 EX coupe I bought in 2004(?), totaled that in an accident in 2012, then spent 4 years on a 93 EX sedan, now on the wagon. Still in pretty good shape. If it becomes necessary, RimWorks in Dayton, Ohio does a very good job of refinishing wheels to better than new (I think). They blast the wheel, powder coat the gray/silver all over, remachine the face, then clear powder coat. The smooth surface of the powder coating on the bulk of the wheel seems to minimize the amount of dirt/dust that accumulates.

Rolled through 245,000 miles a few days ago.

It looked a little better Thursday sitting an inch or two lower when my son and daughter had it fully loaded to go back to school.

I always regretted not getting the wagon but the wife wasn't buying in...

So here's one I've never seen and always thought would be very cool. Has anyone ever "put together" a 93SE Wagon (using the leather, drive-train, brakes, dash, etc. and painted it cashmere metallic like mine.

If not I'm surprised it hasn't been done... or has it?

Probably not. If I lowered it, it would be even lower when fully loaded. As long as it is being used to haul college stuff back and forth to FL, I'll leave it at stock height.

I can't say that I've seen one.

The rear seats are different in the wagon from the sedan, so those would have to be recovered. The drive train in an EX wagon is the same as the SE (although final drive or gear ratios may be slightly different - would have to double check). Brakes are bigger on the wagon, so you'd probably want to stick with them. Stereo uses five speakers (2 in the doors, two tweeters in the rear ceiling, one 6 x 9 woofer at left rear, so Bose system would require some modification (if you could even find a working system).

Man, I haven't seen a wagon that nice in a long time. All of your cars are super nice, so jealous.

Visited 5 body shops yesterday to have them take a look at the rust on the back of the roof structure between the hatch hinges. Two basically said they wouldn't touch it, one wanted to peel the entire thing apart, two gave me estimates in the $1000 range, all subject to change depending on what they find. I'll have to drop the headliner to give them good access to the underside.

The seam where the roof panel (which folds down to where the hinges are) meets the rest of the structure is rusting. Last year I tried to wire brush and treat it (it was through in a few small places) and cover it, but it is back. The shop that did Ruby has changed hands twice; they no longer do rust repair.
