    My "Lemon Tart"
  1. Car now sold. Short lived ownership, but fun.
  2. The weekend consisted in slicing my fingers and hands to ribbons removing unnecessary sound proofing material. Dynamat is sharp stuff. Refitting new trim and generally improving the interior. Not going to fit a subwoofer as I need the car to be light, so just a modest head unit and subtle speakers. Next on the list is re-spraying the rocker cover in black and stripping the braking system, also giving the engine bay a well deserved de gunk and polish.

  3. New old stock Accord wheel. Just fits in very well. More grippy than the Civic wheel. Just need to have the wood effect dash changed. Thinking carbon or machined aluminium effect. New thicker carpet. Stripped the boot bare. Thinking of fitting a sub woofer in the wheel well and a better hidden head unit.

  4. I have resisted to say anything on this thread as I hate that colour "Yellow" sorry Chris it's a revolting colour for cars. Happy thou as you are enjoying it

      I'll come down and park it outside your house!! It's bright. But it is a Civic Jordan colour not the drab yellow from the original. I like yellow and it seems right for a modified car not a standard car.

  6. What a wonderful car! I'd love to do something like this to mine if it wasn't so original. Mucho jealously here!

      I'd still sooner have this in the garage that you can actually use and enjoy than a project car that's just sitting there doing nothing. You made the right choice!

  8. What a striking car. You have been busy. It looks like you won't have much spare time for a while.
  9. She looks immaculate, especially the interior. Congrats Chris, sounds like you're wanting to squeeze out some power with this one.

  10. It seem's to me the older Honda's get the better they are, I wish Honda could rekindle some of that classic design into there modern offerings I believe that the 7th Generation Accord was there last great shape.
