You had to be kind of having an out of body experience (ah perfect wordplay) when you went to cutting the floorboard out of that beautiful hatch.
I was just talking smack about something like this the other day, making a RWD Accord using fox chassis floor boards and subframing, but this... this is just Dr Morreau. No turning back now is it.
Holy fucking shit dude!!!! Keep the pictures rolling!
didnt get as much done as i thought i would today, family more or less wanted to go out and do stuff, so since i havent spend much time lately with the kid and the wife. i went out with them.
i did a bunch of grinding to clean up the metal that i will be welding to... but i'm going to drop the frame out one more time and cut it down some more and clean it up nice so once its put in i can get clean straight welds. (had a headache from the noise and was def for a little while lol)
this will also give me a chance to remove the power steering rack and weld in permanent anchors for the tie rod ends, i will post pics to of this process.
wow bad ass
1989 Honda Accord LX-i
B18c1 swap since 7/2011
175whp and 132tq
yeehaaw, that's an awesome project!
When I started reading from page1 I was really hoping you were going to put it in the back and yay you did
I can imagine how fun it's going to be to have a car that you used to know really well and then suddenly turn into a completely different car when you (hopefully) get to drive it again.
If I made something like that and started driving it on the road, I would be put in jail straight away. sucks about this country...
Bump for a vid with a 3g hatch doing donuts!
oh trust me, i cant wait to do some donuts in this thing... i will be running the f series transmission on the h22 because i'm going to weld the diff in it for drifting and i wont care if it flies apart.... once it breaks or i can afford a ATB or equivilant diferential for the h22 tranny, i will swap it out.

your right, they hate certain cars here as well... anycar that comes here has to go through federal, and provincial inspections unless its in canada already then provincial only...
friend of mine bought a 96 ford 2wd truck from the US for 2g's... it costed him more than the truck itself to get it to pass inspections. that included what ever cost as well to fix it.. like one of the regulations is... they had to have a drl(day time driving light) module installed.. but its OK to buy a truck from the next province that doesnt have it and it wont need it ever. another thing that ithought was weird was the abs wasnt working either... so they just pulled the fuse and left it as is.
my car was never needed a v.i. before, and i'm going to try to keep it that way.

very cool! can't wait to see the finished product. have you seen this thread? http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=981613
might have some useful info.
'88 LX-i Coupe --- LS/Vtec
'08 Accord EX-L 6-6 --- Daily Duty
did some more trimming and grinding the paint off the edges of the 4g frame.
if the weather tomorow is as good as it was today, i will be finishing the 4g frame. and hopefully start on the car itself... i dont have to trim anymore off the car itself because i think i cut enough off lol. so i will just be cleaning the surface of the 3g where i will be welding to. and maybe even get the 4g frame tacked in.

that is some fast progress
ya.. well i'm not in that big of a rush, few hours each day seems to be doing it.
^^^^ -- clip is semi finalized and ready for welding inside the car.
^^^^ -- removed the rest of the spare tire well... i havent decided how i want to run the exhaust, but i'm thinkin dual out the middle cut into the bumper. i will of course have to patch up the old exhaust notch so it looks decent. this will depend on how much space i have from the 4-2 downpipe. if there is not enough i will just run 4-2 in the stock location and i will make a notch on the otherside that matches.
^^^^ -- rear subframe doesnt quite line up with the cars frame, i will fix this by welding a 2x2 box steel channel against the insides of the frame rails of the car for the 4g clip to rest on and weld to... it will stiffen the rear of the car and make it stronger.
