    Sadly i did end up selling my accord, but at least it ended up being my best friend who bought the car so i still get to work on it and drive it every once in a while. As for progress ill update soon with photos

    Update

    Before i sold it to my buddy i painted most of it with spray paint to seal it and prevent rust.

    After i sold it to my friend he replaced the belts and finished painting it black and some more.

    We made a chop top honda.


    -20170415_133800-jpg

    we were going to add that roll bar and shorten it to make it work but my buddy decided to wait. Plans are to keep it with the convertible vibe going and then make it into a truck with a functioning tailgate.

    -20170504_172731-jpg

    We made a bikini top from a tarp and left over steel pipping from a canopy thing my friend had lying around and also added a flag pole

    Shift knob is a mini beer tap thats shaped as a Nitrous bottle. whats neat is he can just change it off with different taps since he gets the taps for free.


    -screenshot_2017-06-08-16-09-10-jpg-screenshot_2017-06-08-16-09-10-jpg

    We also added a hood stack probably hard to see ill add more pics soon

    Future plans for the accord now are

    Relocate battery
    make a push bar
    finish bikini top by replacing tarp with canvas
    swap in lower mileage engine
    turbo it
    finish making it into a pick up and body work

    Well, that's *um* interesting.

    Actually seeing your work on the Civic I can't wait to see how the car...er...pickup turns out. Old school Ridgeline? Or Hi-po Jolly.
