Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

I know Iím just saying the blame is usually placed on us when it wasnít our fault. I guess the canít grasp that the elderly donít have reflexes like they used to. Iíve had a few close calls with Frankenstein but clutch in, rev and dumping the clutch usually woke them right up lol

Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

Decided to tint my taillights since I didn't like how the red contrasts with the green. Not a big fan of it as it sits, I might cut out the film to expose the bottom white strip. LEDs are also on the way to brighten the tail light output.

Fiberglass lip is cracked so I guess it's time for me to get an authentic WW rear lip .

You do know fiberglass is repairable right? The damage looks easy to fix. It'll probably take longer to re-wrap it.

Sucks that people just can't control their vehicles anymore. I guess that's why there's such a big push for self driving autos. :O You're not the first here to have been hit by an "older" person.

Haha it's an ill-fitting lip anyways, I'd rather just get an authentic lip instead.

Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

Trimmed out the white strip of the taillights and new LEDs are in. It's like the taillights aren't even tinted anymore. Highly recommend going Led conversion for better visibility.

Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

Very nice shade of green, I was thinking of having my Camaro done in a similar color. My Accord is liquid wrapped in jet black Airwrap right now, with a faint gold pearl. Don't worry, I won't wrap the Accord in green next time and steal your thunder
