Default My car's Update

Hey guys, how's it going?

Its been quite a while since I've been on here, so I though I'd give an update on my car.

Here is my car 1 month after I got it......bone stock.

Unfortunately, over the past year and a half, my car has not gone unscathed. The first spot happened in a parking lot (someone hit the car while I was at a bookstore, and then just left), and the second was from an incident with a bike.

Within the last few months, I started getting into the modding game (as much as a part-time job and car payment will allow). I decided to change out a few parts, here's what I've done so far.

'94 OEM Accord grill and '94 OEM front lip

This Friday I will be replacing my eBay headlights with Depos (JDM replicas)
*pics to come*

That's all I've done so far. However, since my car will be paid off in July, I have plenty of stuff planned.

Future:

-Function and Form Type 2 coilovers
-'94 OEM rear lip
-AEM short ram intake
-MagnaFlow muffler with custom piping
-much more, still haven't decided yet.

I got them from a friend who was selling them. Yes they would fit, since your Accord has a 4x114.3 lug pattern. BUT, I would recommend getting EX wheels from an Accord like yours. The car is bigger, so they made the tires wider to compensate for that. Check out 2002 Accord SE wheels, they are pretty sick looking.





Well, I got my new Depo headlights installed today. Night visibility is MUCH better, and they fit nice and flush with the fender.

For now they are gonna stay stock. In the future I may have my friend blackhouse them like he did to his. Not too sure yet.
