    Hungarian hatchback 1983

    Hi all!

    Some days before I bought this accord with another spare part car. (Video linked)
    This is an european version with 1601 ccm engine. ( I need service manual in pdf if anybody have)
    The early second gen. accords are very rare type in europe.

    As you see it has lots of problem. Fortunately these parts on the spare car are good.
    I would like to restore until 11.2015. because the MOT will expire on that time.
    At first I tried to repair the electric antenna on the roof but i can't remove the inside carpet. I worried about wrack.
    Anyway, this car is amazing and good to belong to this club.
    /Sorry for my bad english/

    Wow man. That is a clean looking car! Shame about the rust though. Are you planning on stripping off all the paint and getting rid of the rust? You have got your work cut out for you. Good luck! Welcome to the site!

    Post more updates as you work on it. Would love to see your progress!

    Re: Hungarian hatchback 1983

    Thank You 2ndGenGuy! As I see you are a strong point in the club and evryone has a kind word.
    Yesterday I took it to car mechanic changing oil, filters,belts.
    He cloncuded it some shaft and suspension exchange necessary.(Crackle on bend)
    Next year I will bring the spare car (from 300 Km - about 187 Miles) and will be replaced if possible.
    Of course I replace the two fender arch and try to repaint to the original color whole car.

    Other: I dont know why all kind of classic hondas ('70 and early '80s) cheaper like other japanese cars (Datsun, Mitsubishi, Mazda) here in Europe.
    My first dream was a very rare 1977 Datsun 120y coupe, but the cheapest was 2300 Euro (3000 USD) in Polland (625 miles faar from Hungary).
    I bought this accord in my country about 750 USD + 370 USD spare car ! I dont regret my decision however avaible more parts on the shop and cheaper. It can also satisfies my japanese oldtimer obsession.
    only one litle thing : - would have been nice a rear wheel drive....

    I will update this thread if happens something!

    Re: Hungarian hatchback 1983

    I found an another co-brand in my country!
    Here is his blog:
    JDM Jinsei
    on the bottom: újabb bejegyzések=new posts régebbi bejegyzések=older posts, tovább olvasom=continue reading

    His car was on the "rozsdakupac" magazin in 2012.
    Banpei.net Magazines: Honda Accord in Rozsdakupac » Uncategorized » Banpei.net

    Unfortunately he sold his car and started a subaru project
    I will try to find the buyer who has 3 of same , allegedly. (First the new bought, second to daily using, third to spare)

    I count my known hatchback. 8 so far. In my opinion here are maybe about 20 or maximum 30 piece of it.

    Here are the manuals we have: Honda service manuals - The 3geez Wiki

    We don't have an '83, but the '85 might work for your needs. If you want to buy the '83 manual and scan it, let me know and we'll post it with the others.

    I bought a car stereo like this:
    Kenwood KRC-300D Vintage 80s Rare Cassette Car Stereo Renault GT Toyota Datsun | eBay
    This is from that era. As I know the relase date 1983.
    The orange color button of the radio is same color like right next temperature adjuster (fit together)
    I can't found original Honda stereo. In Germany (where from arrived these car to Hungary) the original radio equipment was "Blaupunkt Coburg M21".

    I wonder if that seat is going to sit funky with some of the foam being old and tired. Let us know please.

    I love watching this project unfold.

    Seat :
    At first i had to hold up left side with old t-shirt. I used upholsterer's foam-glue.
    Than I started to use Flex-foam.
    The upholsterers also using this pourable foam.
    Autó ülések restaurálása
    It has diferent strong. I used X. strong level.
    This material surface is more harder like the original seat foam, so i cut with blade (Inside the purable foam is softer). Other hand, cut is necessary to forming the surface.
    I feel a litle difference with two foam, and the flex-foam feel better.

    Than I glued a thin level foam so as to starched carpet.This glue made it harder the original foam.
    If this thin level will care with original carpet than i hope not will be old and tired.

    At last I will rope some spring line under the foam for harder seat sense.

    Door carpet:
    Under the window I also change the foam. Now less wavy.
    I found leather behind door-serge to change the armrest area.

    (sorry for my english)
