Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

What led bulbs did you go with? Anything you don't like? Ive been thinking of upgrading my lighting since stock output front and rear sucks. Also can you post a completely side pic of your car? I would like to see how far back the ait spoiler sticks out. I saw the pic on page 1 or 2 but its at a slight angle. Car looks good!

For the rear, I went with Alla bulbs off of Amazon.

-1 set of 39-SMD 7443 bulbs in white for reverse lights

-1 set of 39-SMD 7443 bulbs in yellow for turn signals

-1 set of 39-SMD 7443 bulbs in red for The corner/brake lights

-1 set of 194 bulbs for the trunk parking/running lights

They're all Alla LED bulbs. Don't forget the relay flasher or load resistor too!

Okay, if I have your permission don't cry when I post it! Lmao no really I'm saving it for the Camaro. There is definitely a lack of those that aren't Hulk green lol.

They're a retrofit, so you'd have to make them yourself. Check out the retrofit thread for ideas!

Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

I'm just having **** luck lol. My master cylinder **** itself while I was moving up at a stop sign. Brake pedal went straight to the floor and car rolled forward into traffic.


But.... the rebuild has already started. I found an actual OEM coupe hood for cheap, reordered another aftermarket bumper, got an Oreillys fender (which has surprisingly really good fitment), reordered another front lip, and reinstalled my old blackhoused headlights for now. Also bought an OEM master cylinder. Kinda pissed I dumped all this money I was saving to get a rear diffuser . Oh well, could've been worse

I'm gonna run my stock sedan bumper for now and have the CF4 fogs refitted into the new bumper.

Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

Bumper is back at body shop, removed the wrapped aftermarket hood and installed the new one, new fender is in, and rewrapping the car begins again. Saving up money for retrofit parts again as well.
