    Fresh pics of "Rough Life"

    I finally got the new wing mounted up and washed the old girl, so I decided to snap some new pics. Enjoy!

    Side shot with the new wing in view.


    Rear shot with the new wing. (that pesky rust spot been sanded and painted several times but it keeps coming back)


    Replaced the Honda H on the hood


    Sittin' pretty


    And one under da hood with the new wiper wing in view too. This thing really does help out a lot on the down stroke.
    They come standard on the 4Gs but the arm dont fit on a 3G so ya gotta cut or drill out the rivets and then drill holes on a 3G arm to mount it up. Too simple to bother with a "how to".

    For all of the old school restorer folk out there ... found a card for the tilt steering from a Prelude. Just replace the pic with a 3G pic for a fresh from the factory lookin card!


    Mods completed so far:
    Integra lower front lip
    Aluminum mesh grill cover and air intake guard
    2G Integra spoiler
    Limo tint on the rear half and sunroof
    20% tint on the front doors
    4G Accord driver side wiper wing
    Factory Honda Sunroof visor
    Aftermarket window vent/shades
    Integra headrests
    SE-i Center console armrest
    SE-i cupholders
    Billet shifter handle
    Ebay engine ground kit
    2 guage main ground
    Home-made Cold Air Intake with AEM bypass
    Silicone vacuum tubing
    2 inch cat-back exhaust
    Jegs aluminized fully welded muffler
    Ebay "racing cat" (glass pack resonator/test pipe)
    92 Vigor rear sway bar
    H&R sport springs (1.5 inch drop)
    Tokico Blues shocks
    BMW bottlecap wheels with Honda centercaps

    It's a cheapy ebay ground kit with a custom made main ground cable, but it definately does help out. Now if I could just figure out why I keep frying the top injector seals I'd be set.

    Looking good. Are you sure that it's the top seals that are leaking? I replaced all of mine only to find that they were leaking where the plastic met the metal body of the injector.

    Pretty sure. It looks like that brownish goop ya get when injectors leak is built up where the top of the injector fits into the fuel rail. And they were just installed new last year so the injector itself shouldn't be broken down yet.

    Thanks!

    Heheh thems the old aftermarket vent shades on it still in the pics. I haven't had time to install the Honda factory ones I got from the yard that day so far. Probably install 'em this weekend. Both of the front door visors are cracked though so I'll need to make sure the cracks are sealed first.

    Bummer about yer ignition wire though. The new project looks good too.

    As long as I get pics at a distance or an angle ya cant see the busted up stuff very well. If ya get up close and personal with her ya can see the flaws, but I'm workin on em.

    Awesome bottlecaps, look in very good shape! Did you have to spacer them at all or were they close enough to the stock wheels to fit without changes?

    Hehehe the visors mentioned by 89accorder are the OEM Honda ones. I just haven't had a chance to replace my aftermarket visors yet. I woulda loved to have the ones Ghettogeddy was sellin' (no cracks in his I bet) but Xmas is just around the corner and cash is limited. The OEM ones I got the other day only cost me $10 plus tax.

    You'll have another Accord soon I bet, and the new one will be even better than the original now that ya already know what works/looks good and what dont.

    No changes made to the wheels at all. They fit just like the stock LX-i wheels. They even had the right sized tires already mounted on 'em. Ya just cant use the stock Honda lugnuts because they have a rounded seat, and the BMW wheels have a tapered seat.
