    Update time. My mom happened to come across some older photos of the car from back when it was shiny and new. The first picture is from around 1996 back when it was still my grandmothers car. The second picture is from around 2000 or so. It was cool to come across them.



    On to the new stuff. I finally picked up another lip and got everything back on the car as fast as I could. The tire stencils came in today so I felt compelled to wrap that up as well. I liked the Bille style bumper, but nothing will ever come close to this look for me.



    I've been hunting for a little while now for a muffler that I like both the shape and sound of. This week at work we had a 350z traded in with an ISR single exit exhaust, one that I've had my eye on for a while and even contemplated buying new. Since the car was going to have a stock exhaust put on it, I decided to pick up the muffler. Unfortunately they hacked out the nice resonator that is supposed to come with the exhaust, but I got a good deal on the muffler itself so I'm going to weld that on to the piping I have now with the intentions of eventually having a complete nice exhaust made.

      Mike glad to see your still working on the Accord. Even though it doesn't seem like you've been working on it a whole lot lately. Any updates on the ITB's that you picked up awhile back? Also the front end is looking like your car is supposed to. The Billie bumper just wasn't aggressive enough for the rest of the car.

        I'd love to see this thing wrapped

        Great build, makes me miss the old days.

              Rilas, you're right, I haven't been working on it much but I am still driving it every day. I feel incomplete when I haven't driven it. I've been dragging my feet with the ITB's. What I need to do with those right now is send out the injectors to get cleaned and flow tested. Once I know what size they are I'll be able to get the car tuned. I've been driving on my stock P13 for a while now as my tuned ECU will go full rich for apparently no reason on my drive to work. The Bille bumper was something I picked up for the time in between lips. My last bumper was damaged by a tire in the road a long time ago and I had no luck finding one in the junkyard in the same color. I never really liked it, but it was kind of fun to do something different for a while.

              gloryaccordy, I was really surprised how well the spoiler fit considering it wasn't made for the chassis. I really want to get it painted one color soon, but I want to have the look completed before I go to paint. Thank you for the support.

              GTRON, I saw the look RonaldTypeR had and I had to put my own spin on it. I actually need to order another set to replace my rubbed through ones. Thanks for the props.

              bseballkid1990, thank you. it's been a favorite of mine ever since the first time I saw one.

              New this week, I had to pressure wash the lettering off the tires today. For some reason, the same paint I used on my last set of tires turned brown very fast with this set of tires. I think I'm going to just take some paint pens and color in the factory lettering on the tires. Much easier to touch up and clean that way. I also had the chance to have the 350Z ISR muffler welded on this week by a new friend. He got the angle of the dangle just right and it look and sounds far better than I was expecting.

              This coming weekend I am going to another autocross event so I'm looking forward to feeling the differences with the LSD trans and lighter wheels with better tires. It's been almost a year since the last one I went to. Hopefully I'll be able to borrow a GoPro again.

                Had an absolute blast at Autocross this past weekend. Finished in the top 10 winding up 9th out of about 30 cars.

                    I'm surprised I do as well as I do to be honest. Especially since I'm not in any particular class, just grouped in with everyone in an open class. I was talking with a few people there and they were saying it looked like I was moving. I want to get my times up there with that Integra but that would mean I would need slicks at a bare minimum. I want to get a few chassis braces and then go out there again so I can feel the differences.

                      Yea Hondas of that era are very noodly... bracing the chassis would do wonders

                        Great car. Looks 10X better with the new bumper and lip! I'm very jealous of that lip! Say, ever think of losing the splitters? (under the lip) and changing the hood?

                        That 4th last picture where the front is in focus and the rear is a blurrrrr... nice pic.

                        edit: it's a CF hood with functional vents is it?

                          The trick is figuring out which brand braces to get. I won't knock ESP for rigidity, but it looks like tow hitch stock material. I've been trying to find a Cusco front strut bar for ages and I don't think a Neuspeed will fit over the H.

                          I've thought about changing the hood, but the one design that I like, I'd have to ship from Malaysia. My current hood is a stock steel hood with a hole cut for the vent and yeah, it's functional. The splitters are really just there to add rigidity to the lip and protect it a bit. This is my third one. I still need to put my canards back on the car.

                            lol 3rd one. Meanwhile in Canada I've been looking for 5+ years. Oh, I did photoshop your car with no hood vent and lower splitters, may post it later in here if you don't mind.

                              The secret is replica parts. I'm not huge on knock offs but as much as the real ones cost and as many times as I've cracked them, I'm all for fiberglass. All of mine I actually bought from someone in Canada.

                              Feel free to post the picture. I've been thinking of trying to photoshop my car one color one of these days.

                                Man it had to be wild to watch your Accord rip it up. All motor too. When you brace that chassis up it's gonna be a beast
