    In the process of detailing and correcting the paint , and working on the interior, not that it need much more than a ocd hoover leather condition, and trim wipe.


    There are 3 major damages to work on, front left corner, rear left corner, and this side panel below

    It is fairly minty i have to say, mechanically its sound, its worst issue is 2 bumper scrapes.

    Theres plenty of clearcoat left, clearly garaged at some point in its life, tho not the last 3 years, there was some moss in some funny places lol. All cleared up tho. Camera is not good enough, but there lots of flake pop.

    All i used was 1-2 hits of G3 scratch remover (new range) then a liberal hit of Autoglym Super Resin polish, ill then wash it again and stick some 845 colli wax on it once its all done.

    Well it went for its MOT at Honda, it failed, as expected. However not on much,

    Blowing exhaust, Front right ABS sensor, Excessive tyre age.

    Could be worst for a 20 year old car, so ill get a plate welded on that exhaust hole, get a new sensor on, and put on the 16" alloys from the silver Accord for the MOT. Ill swap the wheels back after, as they been quite picky there i think, the tyres have 4mm on them and only have small cracking in the outer tread blocks.

    Then its drivable!!

    So yeah, update, 4 uniroyals have been added, its a long story, but i thought the tyres were fine, but i can't get it through MOT and then drive it without new ones, it mean another car won't have wheels! plus 15" tyres are so cheap compared to 17"


    New EBC black stuff pads, have been purchased.


    So once this ABS sensor comes hopefully friday or monday, we can get this MOT passed.
