**732xghost's 2002 NGM CG6 (UPDATED 08/27/2014)***

this is my 2002 Accord EX-L Sedan 5spd. i bought the vehicle on July 3, 2010 with 72K. At first i wasnt too fond of the color but didnt care because i needed a reliable replacement for my H22 swapped CL. but after a while i saw the potential in this color and am excited to get to work on it.

I went to like three dealerships when I was looking about 6 years ago and not one of them had a 5-speed in any trim

yeah i should have elaborated more. if you can find a CG in 5spd at all, its usually a LX or EX. hardly come across any DX's here at the dealership to be honest.

Re: **732xghost's 2002 NGM CG6 "Goldmember"** (56K in 2010?)

i was very particular about the engine bay in my CL and althought i wont be doing a swap or hiding and tucking harness, removing accessories, etc etc; i still want this bay to be clean and tasteful.

did this a few weeks ago. a little trick i learned from tucked and shaved engine bay guru's:
