  • Honda Accord Coupe 1996 5th Generation.

    I bought this car in February 2015 and after having driven it i haven't looked back! When i purchased it there was only 85k miles on the engine with very minimal bodywork to be done. After doing some research i found that there was less than 15 left in the United Kingdom! Although at the beginning there won't be much progress as I've other things to pay for at the moment.

    The plans for the car are long term as I'm in no real rush and want everything done properly. Below is bit of a breakdown of some of the plans, no doubt I've missed out some of the smaller things!
