    The RamThis Accord Update Thread!!!

    Allright, things are moving along and I dont want to clutter up the board anymore with multiple threads, so I'm putting all updates here from now on.

    As of tonight, I now have all my new front and rear window trim pieces ordered with the clips that are needed, and new cowl clips.

    My carpet order is pending getting some samples to check that I'm gettin the right shade of Blue.

    Im going to look for some bumper covers at a local body parts store because shipping on the two covers from PartsTrain.com was going to run close to a hundred dollars!! Yikes.

    And soon I will be getting my paint and clearcoat and getting ready to paint the car.

    And at the same time, I gotta finish pulling my wire harness and engine out, and start putting in the LXI harness and rebuild that engine. Then it gets painted and dropped in.

    Yep, its all that simple, right? LOL

    And, WTF is this thing? It had some vacuum hoses going to it, I never knew it was there until I pulled the fenders and started pulling the vacuum crap off the driver side wheel well, then saw alot of hoses went to this box. One of the bolts is behind the headlight motor, so the box might stay lol.

    Re: The RamThis Accord Update Thread!!!

    There is a body supply store not far from here that has great prices, Eagle Auto Body in Grand Prarie Tx. I can drive out there and save alot of shipping on the bumpers, and I'm sure their prices will be very competitive, the have been on a few other parts I've just priced out, plus a couple friends from my old job used them. I didnt even think about Eagle until I went to finish my order on PartsTrain and saw the shipping, then I rememberd that local place and wondered why I even thought about ordering such big pieces on line lol.

    Even the eBay deals have some nasty shipping charges.....

    hahahaha at the parts car running and driving. should bolt some seats in and take it for a spin like that. lmao.....your local city doesn't object to you disassembling a vehicle in your driveway like that? well anyway, looks like you're going really good with your project. reminds me of when i had my eclipse stripped down. well, just the dash out. that was a pain. hope to see the finished product soon.

    remember to use carbed exhaust valves when you rebuild the head. clay the cylinders to make sure there's no contact with the piston. the carb exhaust valves are marginally longer from what i've been reading.

    Man you got that thing torn down. Make sure to pull the sway bars and bigger brakes to put onto your car. You will like the added performance. Good luck with everything. I believe that box is for the carb, but I am really not sure.

    Re: The RamThis Accord Update Thread!!!

    Well, took my first trip to a couple wrecking yards today. Man, what a mess those places are lol. Did see a few useful parts, like doors and interior pieces, tail lights, LOTS of sunroofs. Found a car just like mine, same color, with beautiful new looking seats, EXCEPT, the rear seat upper part was totally sun eaten, you could just put your finger right through the damn fabric. I was SOOO dissapointed when I saw that. Oh well. I might go back for the front seats and the rear lower part though.

    But I did score this for ten bucks.....

    (no not the damn cat!!!)
