    P5ylance : 1992 Accord EX

    Thanks to this site, I would have never realized the potential my accord could ever have. With this site's guidance, the help of some members (Thank you for answering my PM's and responding to my threads, haha), and the information and knowledge presented on this site, I was able to achieve a vision for my car far greater than I could have ever imagined. I am truly grateful for everything. With that said, I feel my car is now ready to present to my fellow members here on CB7Tuner. This is my pride and joy...

    Lily the Accord

    THESIS: Fuel Efficiency, Luxury Interior Conversion, VIP (Bippu) Style and AutoLuxury. Power and speed are not my priorities with this car as of yet, or if at all. My intent with this car is to create a luxurious daily driver that runs and flows smoothly with minimal issues, handles well, is easy on fuel, and looks great rolling slow, VIP Style.

    Love this car in a whole great mods.


      hahaha dayum that was fast thanks for the compliment! I really appreciate it

        fcuk ya....that's one hella of a ride...VIP PEOPLE!!!!.......Leather interior by any chance got that from another car!!! lol

        Mercyboy: I rather lose by a mile because I built my own car then win by an inch because someone else built it for me..your car is your story, so don't let someone else write the book!

          lol thanks bro!

          Front Leather Seats are from an Acura Vigor:
          - Swap was straightforward, swap accord seat rails onto Vigor seats, and bolt in

          Rear Leather Seats from an Acura CL 97-99:
          - Swap was also straightforward, bottom seat falls right in, but you gotta bend a metal tab a bit to get it to line up with a bolt hole. The backrest just pressfits, I'm trying to figure out a way to get a latch on it that lines up with the accord

            Wow , this thing is freaking clean man.

            Nice work

            And is the final stance/drop with the race springs that give off a 1.5 inch drop ?

                this looks really great! i love the luxury look you are trying to accomplish. You just need a set of rims to set off the whole look. Maybe some louis vutton, coach, burberry, or fendi fabric for the interior panels?


                thats what im planning on doing.


                  i love this car, so much of a creative process with this thing, and i can see it, im a diy whore, and u r also.

                  really fukin sweet ride. i noticed u painted the door garnish silver at the bottom, sweetness.

                    10thannCB7: haha thanks! been working on it for two years now and yep, that is the final stance with the H&R Sport Springs (1.75F/1.5R). Its about an inch gap all around after everything has settled. I went from being able to fist my fenderwell gap to having to slightly cross my fingers. It's a good drop, enough to get rid of excessive fenderwell clearance and still have a tiny gap to clear for rubbing. I added a strut bar from eBay to improve the handling characteristics of the suspension and I will soon add front and rear anti-sway bars from Suspension Techniques when i get the money Other than that, some 17s oughtta fill up the rest of that black space very nicely

                    Daheavyking: thank you very much!

                    JunyAccord: thanks! yup i'd rather have luxury than a really powerful car at this point (planning on owning an NSX someday so that'll be my Go Fast Car hahaha), and i get a lot of compliments from people who sit in my car (especially my lady friends, haha). I condition my seats every other week to retain the softness. I've even got footpedals that cost me $210 (Dead Rest also), lol but they look and feel amazing (under my shoes). Definitely, i'm just trying to find some nice 17" rims that are affordable for me, and that will set it off but its SO hard to find Mercedes looking broad/flat-faced deep lipped rims (like Works Euroline DH for example, or some Work Equips) for my car in 4x114.3 haha so the search continues.. i've been on craigslist for the past 2 weeks and nothing remotely close has popped up. Why has no one made a knock-off of that style yet :'( lol.

                    Those example pics in that link you linked to look awesome! haha those chairs look surprisingly comfy

                    Yup! the door fabric is my next interior project! I recently picked up some leather fabric thats polyester and stuff, looks and feeels amazing. I'll take pictures of the project when it gets finished, on tuesday imma head over to my friends house and she's gonna help me sew them up, i just gotta go to the junkyard and pull off a piece of fabric for us to use as a template. I'm doing a pleated look, like the NSX. :3 can't wait to see how it turns out!

                    F20A CB7: thankss bro, DIY whores for the WIN! Love this car man, you have to think so much to get stuff to work for your car, like lips, side skirts, rear lips, swapping seats... it's fun cuz its not like i can go to a store and purchase all i need like civics and integs, its a whole new level of customization when you're in the CB game.

                    haha I went back to the picture to see what you were talking about, and thats actually my car, thats white paint. BUT, now that you mention it, having that painted as a silver lip looks pretty good :] too lazy to take it off and do it again though ^_^

                          Wow nice accord! Everything is clean, polished parts and all.

                          Makes me want to polish some things


                            you should post some more interior pictures , all those vip thingys got me curious lol

                            Check Out My Work In Progess . . . . .


                              Excalibur02: thanks a bunch! yeah ever since i discovered polishing after i saw TypeG's ride, I've been in love with making my car shine! I'm in the process of polishing all the steel trim around the windows, then i'll move onto polishing my glass and getting off the buildup of rain-X over the years, so that my black tint looks even blacker! and I always look at your car too really excellent ride you've got, very clean as well!

                              POLISHING PARTY

                              10thAnnCB7: Sure thing! I just finished installing my 9293 Center Console Armrest that I ordered from Canada today, it's been sitting in my house for 2 months untouched because i was trying to figure out how to relocate my e-brake safely to the middle, but now its all bolted up (the bolt on the rear of the bracket near the cables is a little sketchy, but it works, lol)! I took pics of the install, and will probably post up another DIY pretty soon! That sheetmetal is pretty damn thick :\ broke one of my cut-off wheels :'[ I dyed the armrest cushion black, and i sprayed the plastic black too, and to get that dull OEM look i waxed it. looks great.

                              tomorrow i have another free day, i'll take some interior shots of everything i've done inside then :] maybe detail while i'm at it!

                              Tomorrow is also the day i continue my interior door panel project... NSX Style (luxury style) door panels hereeee we go!!!

                              PS: been trying to get my 5th Gen side skirts fitted too... got my passenger side all lined up, and i transferred the holes onto the driver side, but i was off by a cm on the transfer, so i gotta do the saaaame dang thing i did for the passenger (locate all the holes and drill them)... so tedious, these things. :[ iono if i'll be able to make a DIY for them, the process was so involved and chaotic.
