Hey guys, bought my accord two years ago. Thought I'd post to say hi and show you my progress. I stumbled upon the car on Facebook, guy wanted 2,000AUD I offered 1K and took it off him. Was sitting away in his shed rusting and dusty. Used a trailer to bring it home and it sat there in that spot for a good 8 months. I started the B18A every third day and hoped for the day I would finally drive it. Then eventually I gathered enough money to pay for parts and repairs. All brakes were replaced, it needed a new power steering hose, fresh windscreen, a few oil leaks. Now it's running better than ever and I drive it almost every 3 days as it's my project car and not my daily. It's a 5 speed manual and has 105,000 miles, not bad for a 33 year old car. It has power folding mirrors, the map lights, some cool Japanese interior quirks, I love it. I had to replace the muffler as it rusted out and have a nice stainless steel barrel muffler with twin tip exit, twin tips just suit these cars. I just got my fresh windscreen installed today and they managed to save all the chrome trim so I'm very happy with that. There's almost no 3rd generation accords in Australia and I have not seen one in or off the road since I've had mine. There are a lot of preludes and people mistake mine for that, but with 4 doors the people who know about cars have trouble figuring it out. I'm gonna put the badges back on soon when I'm satisfied with my restoration. I have bought GSR integra blade wheels to put on it next week keeping within the OEM Honda brand. Also I stumbled upon a Sei parts car so I snapped that up since I haven't seen any accords, and my parts car has all blue interior mint, which will match my main accord and I'll swap the seats out. I like keeping it stock and won't lower it just yet as Australia is just strict with modifying cars. I'm 20 and it's cool to own a car like this, it's classy and unique, and to be honest I do believe I have the only EXL-S edition accord in the entire country. I tried to attach a photo and if anyone wants to keep up to date with my progress I sometimes post on my cars instagram page which is @slow89accxord !
