    Lexi: Project Retro Tuner

    Hey yall! I have been on here since 2003 but haven't been on the site a whole lot in the last decade and a half lol Anyways, I had a stupid crazy idea about a year ago to turn my 1987 Accord Lxi hatchback into a retro tuner car, period correct to the early 2000s. I wanted to basically recreate my old car from 2002/3. Well, I sourced an original StreetGlow green neon underbody kit that was still wrapped in the factory box! Found a set of 16" wheels that are similar to what I used to have. I couldn't get the same ones because ADR went out of business years ago. I stumbled across an aluminum spoiler that I had to modify to fit the hatch, but it came out tits in my opinion. I bought an old Blaupunkt head unit from July 1999 and will have it hooked up soon. Still need to find a lowering kit and 2-12" Rockford Fosgate subs in an angled box. Besides that, I have a short cool air intake tube to install, and need to get the exhaust finished. But right now she is a daily driver and is solid at 110mph lol
