    Arrow A18A's 1989 Accord CA Thread

    I'm making a new thread cause my other one went gay (here it is if you wish to view). Before continuing, I'll sum up that thread in a couple posts and then continue from there.

    I have another Accord that I use as a daily driver, which means I can have a proper long term project car that I can take my time on & not rush it just cause I need to go somewhere the next day. YAY! Anyway, I'm not entirely sure on what I plan on doing to the car yet, other than a full de-rust of it and painting it another color. This build will probably be pretty slow, cause money says so. But I'll keep updating the thread cause I like documenting everything I do. blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Now to the car.

    Here she is when I first got her (back in 2008)

    And then I took a few things for my other car, so kinda left the car neglected for a couple months

    Now time for the first update in this thread yay. I got motivated today, so I pulled almost everything out of the interior, pulled off the doors, front panels and almost finished delooming the whole car. Stripping the car is the easy and fun part



    A view from the thinking chair


    moar stuff done




    Now I have another mess in the garage to clean up!

    haha yeah i took those pics cause it looked weird how it just sat like that

    I didn't get to do much today cause I had other things to do. I got the rest of the interior (that needed to be removed) out, everything I didn't pull out of there, has no reason to come out. Here's a couple more photos.



    A mate also let me use this rust remover/converter stuff, which actually works yay. I managed to get one (of over 9000) rust spots mostly done. I'm trying to avoid grinding the rust away cause it looks untidy.


    I pushed the car outside for the night so the rain will hopefully rinse it out. If I'm lucky, maybe someone will let me borrow their water blaster lol.

    Re: A18A's 1989 Accord CA Thread

    I chopped it out of my NZ new shitter, I noticed the NZ new cars don't rust in that particular spot as bad as JDM ones do (Y)

    I now have the car stripped to a satisfactory level (minus the rear suspension, tank & such) I pulled off the front sub frame & gave the engine bay a bit of a rinse. I can lift the front of the car up myself now, but it's still too heavy for just myself to move around.

    Here's some photos of all the rust I have to repair. maybe there's more I haven't found yet. Doesn't look like anything major though







    I'm hoping I wont have to remove the rear windscreen to fix these ones


    I need to go get my drill off my mate and get a wire wheel so I can start on the little bits of rust. But first I should go clean up all my mess this car left in the shed & drive way
