    Thanks for the comments gents,

    first off, the wheels are BBS RA, 15x6.

    lol, the motor mount is super ghetto, i chopped the small end off of another dog bone, welded it on and mashed a poly VW rabbit control arm bushing I had lying around. A better one is in the works.

    Rust, yes, i have a little. Im in canada, we get 8 months of winter a year. The city loves to use salt, pea gravel, and sand to destroy all. I thinks it adds to the character.

    To explain, Im a VW guy. This is my winter car. The name only8v comes from my affinity for VW 8v engines.

    1 of my many projects.....











    gotta boost......

    Sweet cars man. The Accord is definitely a bit rusty, but I agree it's good character. Wheels look good on it too. It's almost a rat-rod style Honda. Pretty cool.

    Next mod for the accord will be....... Rust hood!!!

    and yes... rat style, hoodride.... thats what im going for. A little euro old school, mixed with honda dope school.

    If you guys want some unriced wheels, check out the mk1 mk2 VW scene. they really fit these cars.

    Man you VW guys really know how to clean up those engine bays. Makes me jealous! EuroTuner magazine always shows some beautiful interiors too.

    Yeah, I loved my Scirocco, it was my 1st car and I had a shitty job, plus it was riddled with problems so I ended up selling it about 6 months after I got it...I plan on buying another down the road tho as a 2nd project car when my 3gee is all done.

    You know, that actually was my intent was to find a corrado.....I passed up a major deal I found a G60 for $3000 that had rims, custom paint, lowered, manual tranny.... and it only had 120K...But at the time i wasn't anywhere near ready. I know the corrado well because its the "sister-car" of the Scirocco

    Sweet. another Calgary member... your accord is super rusty... but now you guys can see why I went to BC for my new one!. Wheels look great on it though.

    And I've seen your girls car driving down 24st before... its damn nice, the stance is perfect.

    Welcome to the forum too>
