    update:

    mirrors: took my old carbonfiber TCS mirrors off other car painted housing, and candy blue over carbron fiber,, it looks black till light hits it.

    me being verry detailed,, interior parts have been started with paint as well.





    p.s. lol no i didn't paint it with that paint brush haha! been painting my new house with that.

    mod: painting kickplates....

    Pics of my car with TCS mirrors

    At tha shop.

    paint the trim:
    First i scuffed them with water comet and a grey scuff pad.
    Dry them off,, wipe them down with laqure thinner.
    tape them down and as you can see i used one choice adhesion premoter for plastic,,
    from there i made up sealer with flex additive in the sealer.
    mixed my paint and then clear and wala!! lovely.








    more updates when they exzist haha.

    i removed the stck plate , i then removed the iab's i happened to have another stack plate.. so i decided i would experiment..
    i removed them cleaned them used honda gasket seal where needed and plugged the holes on the ends.

    well once i got it done i went to charlies house and like always his long driveway i gunned it up it to see how she does.. she did loose some top end power,, but gained alot of low end torque!!!!!
    needless to stay my car did miss a lick backfired and died, in the middle of his drive way.. my distibuter coil and comp went out we replaced it.. and she runs sweet..

    i told him we were gonna race we built him a b20 turbo motor from the ground up in his civic breakin it in on 5 psi.
    we raced.
    my launch was verry slow but he couldn't keep traction spinning in 1st and second he was almost to 3rd when mine just shiffted out of 1st and because of that my full power ttotally kicked in and i stayed about 10 feet behind him and he didn't pull from me at all, we raced 3 times and the second race was pretty much same as first and 3rd race he missed 3rd and hit5th i won!!! haha!! a automatic doesn't miss..
    here is his car while i was workingg on it and still in progress.


    now don't get me wrong we built his car to hit 25 psi with no problem after it is broke in...
    but if i hadn't of put that iab spacer in there would have been no way i could have kept up,, i was inpressed.

    then a buddy of mine was hey i'll race you in this 1999 taurous,,
    i was ok...
    i don't underestimate any car,, so i was like whatch it beat me haha.
    well we lined up my car jumped the start on him he pulled even with me and i was like sheeze!!! then around 7500-8000 grand i pulled from him a half a car length in every gear i beat him by a car and a half.. then we get back and i was like sheeze that car is fast.. needless to say it was an sho taurous whitch has a v8 235 hp with 200 lbs of torque!!!
    i just beat that!!!!!!!! omg i am siked..

    here is his car with the valve cover,, and i painted his car this 350z color. black hood of corse,, i wet sanded and buffed that hood to look like glass enjoy.






    pics: night shot!




    whoever says that isn't blue is crazzy!

    i got bored and painted my cold air intake...




    now what i can't wait to finish!!!
    i have started a cowl vent that will let heat out and suck cold air in without propping the hood up...
    it takes modifieing the wiper cowl,, the pics are hard to see because it is black.. sorry i will get you more as i work on it some more! this first pic is final product for tonight.



    till next time... when i get an idea or finish my started project,, haha

    I am now married!








    lets just say they all knew not to toch the paint!

    i found this old pic of my 5 spd accord.... i miss it being like this.


    here are some more pics of my car leaving our wedding...









    gotta love it lol!!!!!!!!
    ohh and by the way i finally got unlazzy and finished painting my door moldings and put them on since these pics...

    i decided to candy my guage face blue,a dn put aftermarket guages from my 5 spd in here since it is being gutted sorry for the lame pics there must have been alot of dust on camera and such






    ok this pic is where i moved the cel light indicator.. i got tired of the paper clip and bending under it so now i just switch it on... i am trying to find a foctory push button guage to place in this spot but i wasn't having any luck crossing the power when switching them on... I will though!!! Very Happy

    see see look lower door moldings hahaha

    i realize alot of people will not like these guages.. some say to much blue... well i like the blue......when my dash and doors are all black it'll go alot better together someday you will see

    ok 1 day and i hate the candy face,, so i am putting the clear back on!!!!!!!!! :tu: :tu:

    here is the head i took off my f22,, i will have pics of turbo setup soon







    bumpo for a bad "ooops" valve cover!

    it's for sale in the ebay..


    :bouncy:



    i found some of these old school rice pics, when i was going to mold the hood scoops etc... I'll try to find the pics where i had all this and hude fenderflares.. lol it was great Very Happy

    this was after my sister hit me in the front..








    well tonight i decided while i was priming their hoods. that i would paint an extra hood i owned the color of my car to see if i like it... ehhh,, i like it both ways,, think I'll keep both hoods. 🤷 Very Happy :tu: :tu:

    got creative today check out the modified bumper with buffed black hood and painted grille...i owe some of you an apology the black grille and hood only make it look meaner and better,, the headlights really stand out!!!
    ohh and i painted my lip and redesigned the paint scheme on it and the upper canard i painted to match.









    here we are replacing his turbo ith nothing till we rebuild it,, it has a bad bearing



    lol i have been temped to take the 5 spd stuff out of my 5 spd and swap both from auto to 5 and 5 to auto.. i think i am going to.. i am gutting my other 5 spd accord for a dragster.. and using the panels on that car to be modified and perfected before i put them on this car.. i can't make my mind up on the swap..
    here are some pics of the 5spd in beener mode,... being gutted. and also a rat rod we are turning into a hotrod... I'll have to say this 355 whp z creat motor in this 1500 lb car scared the shiIIIIIIt out of me... i haven't been in anything that fast ever... and i have drove ferrarii's and what not..














    just found this old photo,, i just had to share..





    lol to start out i found my verry first car i fixed up, when workin on the trash rout at the age of 16.. i remember telling my dad i didn't think i had a starter cuz i couldn't find it on the motor!! lol


    here my car goes through some radical stages...



    then here she is in tribal mode..this is when i use to raddle can primer my car in our driveway... i loved it when it was like this.. :bouncy:

    got my other dash ready and redied to go in my blue accord with the ugly red interior.


    nother photo.

    ohh in a few days I'll show you my new taillight setup.


    here i am with my newly painted taillights.
    i put a transparent black over them and inserted the cb7 logo and cleared them, then i sanded them down and recleared..
    i was told it was a stupid idea not to do it.. but i did anyways and love how mean it makes it look!
    and the one who told me not too,, said wow those actually really do look good, "they look expensive now"
    yes you can see the light through them just fine during the day and night.. notice how slick they are.






    ohh and i painted the under the steering colum piece for sale in the ebay section but i just wanted to post a couple pics here..





    well went rally crossing today.. lol
    well heres what happens when your camber kit breaks!
    all is well though. i tried to weld it back together but it didn't work,, so i stole one off my other accord..




    few new shots i got today.




    just look at that rear end.. ummpphh mama..



    turned my automatic shifter into a sporty auto shifter.. did if from this thread.


    i am DIY thread click me

    what can i say it inspired me...


    well hi guys.

    i took tons of photos today for my friend charlie to sell his truck and turbo civic.. so i included my car as well. lol


    these 3 rides were my project this last year,, all from the ground up inside and out.. they are pretty darn nice. but not perfect...so here is you some eye candy!

    thats not counting the 1,700 our shop has already done this year and i have painted.. lol these were my projects with my name all over them. :tu:



























    i decided to stay 20 percent all the way around.. but my buddy finally decided he would tint them, thank goodness..

    she's dirty and wet nicer pics are to follow.

    ok finally got me camera back...

    i know it's getting dark in these photos so bare with me..














    so is it a yay or nay?

    i said i was going to do something simple to my spoiler and i did, i shaved that body line it had around it...
    here are some photos from today.











    i like it better now...


    sorry here is a comparison
    before:

    after:


    before:


    after:


    u may notice i didn't make it flat i left a swoop in it like a bike jump in comparison,, because in person it looks way better..

    no haters lol,, i know it doesn't match at the moment,, but i like it...
    I took my other hood and painted it black and a new design..





    As to do with my art on the hood, I know it doesn't match and i think it's growing on me.. but i had to take the other hood off and what not due to bad paint issues.

    here is a pic i really like and the second is one with a trees shadow in it to show just how slick it really is. with wifes car i detailed the snot out of last night.




    notice my hoods reflection compared to hers..

    more pics of the 2 love birds.






    She has died!


    my beauty lives no more.

    My brother n law was swept off this bridge in the dark at night,, tell me that sh** wasn't scarry lol.
    sorry the pics suck,, "camera phone"

    We are going to get the car from the towe lot mon, to see what i can do with her..
    *sighs*

    looking at the car by my house now, really doesn't look so bad, then i remember that it was all underwater pretty much ruined lol.




    the trunk is still full of water.....





    pretty much how all the wheels look...

    the motor has no oil in it, and is completely full of water.
    here are some photos, that don't show much progress... lol











    [color:422c="DarkOrange"]well i said screw it. i decided to delete the a/c as well. heck all my other cars have a/c.

    [color:422c="Sienna"]so i pulled the compressor, condensor, and all the lines last night. do i need to remove the lil box under the dash where the lines come in?

    [color:422c="DarkOrange"]dear gosh it looks like a bomb went off in my car...

    [color:422c="Sienna"]i also went ahead and removed the radiator to make it more easy to access the a/c components, i don't think i will be putting the oem one back in, but instead, getting the smaller size , but thicker radiator.

    [color:422c="DarkOrange"]i wish bisimito had a header for the h22 already, i think the perfect header is needed to finish the tuck in the future.
    [color:422c="Sienna"]I think tonight i may pull the IM off and start shaving all the stuff on it i don't need, and see about remmoving the iab plate all together to shorten my manifold,

    [color:422c="Red"]gosh i hate you........... [color:422c="Sienna"]lol now that you told me where bouts you put your wiring harnes.. now i felt like thats the best way and how i should do it..... so i pulled the dash and pulled the heater and ac unit.
    [color:422c="DarkOrange"]I know it will look much better this way and be much neater so thats what needs to be done.

    [color:422c="Red"]gosh this is one heck of a project...

    [color:422c="Sienna"]ohh, and it sucks balls taking an intake off without a jack.. took me like 40 min to get it off.






    [color:422c="Red"]
    wire tuck day 16

    good eye man.. yeah i will.

    well i am getting closser.







    [color:422c="Red"]wire tuck day 18

    getting closser.................




    here is a before...




    and kinda almost after, not done yet.


    [color:422c="Red"]wire tuck day 25

    [color:422c="Olive"]for financial reasons i decided to go ahead and reinstall the oem radiator and single fan,

    [color:422c="Sienna"]all i lack is the rewire kit for the battery and reinstalling the steeringwheel and she will be up and running.

    [color:422c="DarkOrange"]after i get her mobile again, i will be driving her with no insurance to the shop and putting her on the frame machine, where i will be pulling the exhaust out of the trunk area, as to where it is crushed up into, hindering me from placing the rear bumper back on the car.

    [color:422c="Sienna"]I will then make sure all things work properly, before i even consider reinstalling and cleaning all interior pieces.
    [color:422c="Red"]ohh yeah i forgot, i have to get my IM sand blasted and reinstalled as well.
    few more progress pics.





    I recieved my sand blasted manifold back today,
    i will be deleting the spacer, what you see will be going on the car.

    the second picture is self explanitory, to what is going to be done.




    well i got her painted around 1:30 am this morning.

    I'm gona go get my gaskets and slap her back on.

    i had a difficult time deciding on the color, well i fell in love with this bass boat flake silver. i think it'll really stand out yet have that stockish look, and be much easier to clean i am gona fill the egr holes up as well.





    a lil progress has been made, i recieved and installed the new tranny seal, thats fixed, i fixed the started, umm..

    i need to start triming it back together , here are a few shots.

    i took in our rain today.
