    Talking a Little update on my lovely 86 hatch **update 08-04-2010**

    Almost 2 years have passed since i've saw my hatch the last time.
    I miss her SOOOOO much.
    Here'S some pics of the progression
    Preparing the shaving and the custom side skirt.


    And the result on Primer.


    Shaving the top!

    Next step, molding the front 88-89 bumper with the custom lip.

    looks good, but i bet youll have a problem with cracks where you shaved the roof. thats a stress point on the car. but good luck anyway!

    The guy did a few other roof shaved like this and no crack since 2 years. It's not some putty. It's welded.

    Some problem with the front lip at the moment. Now the driver side is finished too. We are still working on the Front lip. We still didn't find what to do for the rear bumper as lip... We will put a hood scoop too for the Dual Weber DCOM who will be on the B20A.

    The guy who's working on my car did this 1991 accord too. It was for his daughter(another member of the Quebec Accord Club with me and Carotman)

    He did a lot of custom for this car. He work soooo FINE!!!

    man your hatch is making some nice progress. I think primer is gangsta.
    eh, i'm not feeling that 4G, however, dont like this kit and all the stuff flaring out at me.

    Man that 4g is sweet. It would look better imo with some clear/red tails and that hood scoop centered. That guy does spme really nice custom work though.

    What happened to the doors? In the primered pics they look nice and flush to the door. But in the final pics, they are indented (not flat and even with the rest of the door). Was this a planned decision, or did you use bondo/fiberglass and it "sunk" in.

    I thought from the earlier pictures that you welded in metal strips.

    Peace.
