    Tomisimo's Black.87.Sedan B20a Build Thread

    I guess this is time I get my self one of those threads, to keep everything in order. I start with simple photoshoot and a bit of history to this car.

    The car is all original 87 model and gone 162k mils, no changes to it over the years, it even had original fire extinguisher in it. It was imported from Belgium in 89 and were originally sold for 649.000 German marks in its day, I even have a resit for it. Since 89 it was rolling in south Norway around Oslo whole its life, I was surprised to see so little rust on it as it is, because they salt those roads down there like crazy. There is one hole in the trunk on passenger side and small bubble rust here and there, but overall good. Car were never involved in any accidents after I checked car fax. its clean.. and Now I'm a proud owner of this good example.

    At the moment I swap A20a4 in it because my B20a2 had timing belt snapped so some valves are bent and what not. Anyways I was going to rebuild that engine, Have some plans for it but I dont going to shout about it before I do them. But head will be reworked for sure.

    Here are a little photoshoot.
    Exterior.

    I haven't decided yet if I will keep that spoiler or not. I like it but then I hate it so only time will tell, but if I will take it off I'll let you know, as long as you pay shipping its yours.

    about other car? well, I will part it and then I guess it will go to JY if I don move, because my landlord dont like the idea of to many cars here.

    is the fixed front headlights the same from europe to NZ? Maybe its the black but the front looks different to moe. Its like its taller and the center section is more narrow than aarons car per say. The spioler is tits man whoever gets it will have a great looking ass thats for sure.

    no, it bolted to black box, and tru it and in to alarm speaker. on the bottom there was sensor glued on black box. I believe it was a kill switch that locks all power in the car besides it self. it was quiet complex alarm. I think original install as its wired under the dash not with iso-tape but heat hoses that shrink when heated, and everything hidden with the rest of wiring under there.

    Used like 2 hours just to remove all wiring from under the hood alone, but under the dash it just have to wait until opportunity when I will install new alarm later on.

    Mike it it a lens illusion, those first 2 photos are made by seller, I thought of that too. But its still the same car as other members in NZ have. and also my car is on stock springs so its seems taller.

    ChillyPhil, chilling? well yes, have new KYBs with B&G drop springs 1.6" and wheels also. just havnt put them on yet. And as the tint goes, it will have to wait until I find new front windows, my are with scratches after 23 year abuse.

    the only ugly part of that car is the rear i reckon, cause your number plates are so damn big it looks a little strange. vigor rear end would look tops but you will have to mount your number plate in your bumper somehow.
    still interested in the corner lights? they wont go anywhere in a hurry

    That is one clean car, I can't wait to watch the progress.

    Of course I'm lazy. If I wanted to work on my car I'd have gotten a DSM

    Re: My B20a Black Accord Build Thread

    Some updates. today I'm going to get engine lift from one guy I know, so soon I will be taking that engine out and put in a A20 in it asap. just to have my car rolling.

    Aaron, yes I'm still interested in those corners, and I'm thinking of getting original Vigor trunk lid. as for the rear bumper goes, was considering to use Aerodeck bumper as parts donor, cut out numberplate piece and welt it in to this original bumper so I think that, that problem is solved. And if you can find SuperStage Accord there for side moldings. Want those with chrome in them and mirrors with chrome. Well I need to plan my expenses carefully if I'm to make it happen.

    Thanks guys I like it too, really clean car for its age. As far as that B20 goes, it will be on the road as soon as I'm rebuild it Cant wait my self actually.

    c'mon man, hurry up with that downgrade swap!

    The new one looks great Tom, keep it clean.

    My take on that rear spoiler is: KEEP IT.

    Is that rear window shade an OEM thing?

    Re: My B20a Black Accord Build Thread

    I'm setting back because of bad weather here.. rain and wind but I made some progress. Decided to take the head of and see whats what under there, but as soon as I got in to that I run at another problem, those tree nuts that are underneath the intake manifold are hard to come near with regular tools. its so tight there.
    We, me and Mark D are on AIM figuring this one out. One proposition is to take whole head with intake out and then get it of or what else?

    but anyhow, here are few pics for you. Enjoy






    Covered it against dust and such

    and one sad lill pic. Tragic picture...
