I love this Accord. Clean, clean, clean. Engine bay is awesome. Looks good. Perfect . Wheels and exterior are tight, and the Honda logo on the seat belts put it all together. Good job overall.

Ahh I saw the comment you had left for "Accord Guy" about 5th gens are the best , hmmmm HELL YEAH! *laughs* I just cant see how other accord can look nice shaped out body frame and etc its just nice man. although in the U.S. it just dull maybe. In japan damn! they got the best shyt there for the car that came in as stock, so unfair huh? well now its our job to make ours stand out a bit more than the dull ones, no? lol well keep it going buddy and let me know how its going. I dunno if you had seen my different set of stock rim siI had painted, those are off of a 94-95 EX Accord. well peace out yo!

Posted By: Ian77
Date: 10/14/2005
The sub enclosure turned out beautiful. The sound is now more of a thump and it hits hard. Hip hop or rap really brings it to life. It is made out of wood and cut to fit the spare tire area. The hole for the sub is cut out and the whole thing lays gently over the top. I can now turn corners faster and not worry about pulling wires out of a subwoofer box. The whole thing is secured under the fake paneling. Thanks for your comments! Keep in touch. Later.

Hey Leo, yes i did sand them and cleaned it b4 i painted them. i used grey primer so that it gave a bit car color in some ways but, i took the primer off and kept it black for now cuz i took off my Typr R lip since it got a crack from going up my drive way its really pain in the butt to not have it on, but just for now since the driveway isnt a very good friend to the Lip kit at all. hope i answerd ya question Leo, how eve ri have a question for ya, how id u ended up hitting a person ? yikes was it scary? and hows ya car coming along? is the personu hit alright? to bad our cars dont have air bags in the bumper n hood incase of runnin into a person, well take it easy man keep us updated alight peace

wow your car does look like mine. now i know how my car would look with the clear lenses i like it.

Posted By: Ian77
Date: 09/14/2005
I looked on the web for awhile about the type r grill. There are alot of good sites out there with accord body parts. The grill was about 30 to 50 dollars. It comes unpaited so you should take it to a nice paint shop and match your cars color. I can't remember the site I used. Sorry. Just take a look around.

Date: 09/02/2005
That's terrible! What happened dude? You had a wonderful car. You still do. Hope you can fix it. Later.

Hey Leo. First I put on a short ram intake. After which came the exhaust and the headers. I just switched to the cold air intake. Overall there is a big difference. Good sound, acceleration and power. There are a lot of brands out there so do some research. I did. With these three mods. your car should be pretty slick! Keep it up. Later man.

Posted By: Ian77
Date: 03/08/2005
Hey Leo. I had a short ram intake first. Then I put the exhaust on and the headers were last. I just recently switched to a cold air intake. All three make a big difference. Good acceleration and horsepower . The sound is a low and sexy grumble. Gas milage increases as well which is nice these days. There are a lot of brands out there so I would recomend some research. I did. Overall, All three upgrades are worth it. Thanks for looking at my ride. Yours rocks too. Late.
