            is that a oem hood bra? my oem bra has the accord writing in the center.
            edit: read 1st page to find its a cd5 bra.

            hows the fitment, did you have to tuck alot?

              It is OEM, but it's for the CD5 Accord (Fifth Gen.) Fits great, but the fender straps/aprons won't work properly without modification. I've also tried using CB7 fender straps, but it just don't look right...

              Yours is the OEM CB7 hood bra if the 'Accord' stitching is centered. CB_JoeyG has a prime example of the CB7 bra with the fender straps as well.

                It fits surprisingly well, actually. Once it's on the hood, there is very little tucking needed and once it's tucked, it's good to go till the next time it's taken off. I can open and close the hood without tucking anything and it will retain its position nicely.

                I like that the 'Accord' stitching is off-center and that it doesn't go as far up the hood as the CB7 bra.

                            Thanks man. One of the reasons i even got the 1-piecers is because you can resurface them like this, fairly easily.
