Finally got started on some fun things for the aerodeck!
I ordered some things from rockauto and I bought a new set of floor mats. The car has had these blue, universal mats since forever and didn't fit right. The new ones made the interior feel super nice.
Replaced the old cracked tail light. Super satisfying.
Old on top, new on the bottom
Also, my gf has named the car "Coi", you can see why. While very cute, i don't like the look of that destoyed decal.
This charamel wheel worked great! Just make sure to keep moving it around, you don't want to get it to hot (apparently)
Decent. I have a new decal ready but I need to repaint the rear end first. The paint is shot and there are a few rust bubbles i need to get rid of before.
And I replaced the rear speakers (old on the left, new on the right). It didn't make as much of a difference as I hoped for. I'm guessing they dont sound as good as they could because they dont have a decent box to sit in. The front ones sound pretty good, but they have the entire door for a box. I think i'm going to try to fit the 6,5" in the doors to see if that does anything.
I hope that the amp i have will make the sound a bit better. From what i have heard it's a big improvement. And I have some old random little subwoofer i think i'm gonna throw in aswell.

In my opinion you need a nice condition "COI" decal. Cool stuff!
If I ever get around to doing some body work on my Accord, which it needs as much as yours but I'm less capable, I want to make a badge that says "LeXi" and name it that.
Man thats one good looking car but it's a bit high, innit?
Perhaps I should put these pretty things on
I'll make a separate post going more in deapth about the coilovers and installing them.
We are jumping straight to the resault this time
That look a ton better. And it feels alot more solid that stock. Everytime you turned you would lay the car on its doorhandles but thats very reduced. Obviously I can't blast over speed bumps like I could before with the stock suspension, but that is what to expect with coils.
While I was in there i replaced the sway bar end bushings. They were looking less than good.
This one was so rusty it snapped when I was removing it
And the new and shiny
The next big thing will be rebuilding all the brakes. They feel pretty soft and the handbrake is sticking. I have all the parts on their way and they should be here in a week or two.
I am expecting a review of those YSR coilovers lol
