Smile Another wtb thread - f23 parts / coupe parts

**BE SURE TO READ THE BOTTOM COMMENTS ABOUT CASH / TRADING / BARTERING**


Well, with two projects going now, something is going to have to take a hit. Luckily, the Accord isn't a lot of hardcore wrenching and fabricating. Just the fun of fixing it up and making a few, small alterations mechanically. I'm putting money into my Del Sol...so I'm trying to acquire parts for the Accord on the cheap for now. I realize that a lot of eBay parts are dirrrrrt cheap. But I'm trying to work with some used stuff to cut that cost down even further so I can get the Del Sol done faster..and with the proper parts.

My boy, who is ten, has decided to sort of become the foreman of the Accord. He has superb taste for a 10 year old so I'm letting him pick the parts (as long as I agree with it somewhat). He doesn't like the hardcore ricey stuff. He just digs lips, duckbills, a few questionable things...but overall, I'm okay with it. We've pounded out a rough list of what to do first. Who knows, this may get a new F23 put in it with a snail later on and become his first car when he gets old enough. So weird to say that. If you knew me or talked to anyone I know, I'd be the last person anyone ever expected to procreate. Hah. But right now, he's dead set on a 92-95 Civic Hatch. Which is awesome because he hated them a couple years ago but I liked them. Even when I was hooked on more "sporty" vehicles (CRXs / Del Sols / 300zx / 6th gen Celica GT Liftbacks)...I still had a thing for the Hatchbacks when done properly. I think after doing the work himself / with his Dad, he'll become very attached to the car. And will be more attracted to it after I get the paint and body looking proper again. I'll bet he chooses the Accord over
the hatch when it's all said and done.

So without further ado, here's the list of parts I am looking for in hopes of reconditioning and saving even more money until my Sol is finished -

WANTED - Mechanical / Semi - Mechanical / "Performance" Stuff

** STAINLESS F23 4-2-1 HEADER -
Got a mechanically sound but gnarly one? Sell it to me so I can bring it back to life. I will make you proud if you're into recycling like that. As long as there are no chunks taken out of it and no cracks, I'm game. They're 56.00 shipped off eBay. I have a garage FULL of Honda motors, heads, bare blocks, steel drawers full of parts and more parts..and not one F Series thing around anywhere.

** Catch cans -
like the 14 dollar ones on eBay. I could use one or even two of these. I could make one myself with my eyes closed...but the parts are literally the same price as ordering a cheap one on eBay. It just needs to catch any oil right now. But look legit since the kid is quality control. Hah.

** eBay full coilovers / shocks like maxspeedingrods (seriously) -
I want to get the spacers set up, the ride height, fender flares and then upgrade the full coilovers after I've finished the del sol. Basically, buy cheap ones now, replace them later. They're $233 shipped on eBay right now. If you have an fuctional set that you just didn't like, I'll take them off your hands to help my mock-ups. I'd rather just work on the Sol until it's finished..but doing this with my boy puts us on another level of being close. And that is awesome.

** Wheel Spacers -
I need the 4 lug Honda spacers to 4 lug Honda spacers. No adaption needed since I'm using the same wheel / lug size. I just want to bring them all out an inch or 1.25 - 1.50". All about the wheel spacers for this particular body. Anyone? Anyone?

** Fender Flares -
We all know what they are. I need the ones that really wrap around the fender like these below. You might have a set that you never used or used briefly...I will help take your clutter.




** Extra immobilizer emulator.
I want to experiment with something on the ECU. I need a second immobilizer emulator to do this. Anyone?


**F23A1 TDC sensor -
Used is fine. I'm getting this code randomly. That and the cat. Both need some love, I assume. I'll clean the damn cat when I swap the header.

WANTED - Body / Aesthetics / douchebaggery stuff -


**Looking for a mesh grille like this. Anyone?



** Stock spoiler or larger size trunk duckbill spoiler.
I really like the old Capri spoilers like this and I've seen a few for the 6th gen Accord Coupe that have the same basic feel as this one. A lot of the online ones are a little small / thin for my taste. I'll also consider other stock looking spoilers that fit well. Wings West stuff is always decent to check out.




**Sideskirts / Front Lip / Rear Lip
Hit me up with some pics if you have any of this lying around.

**Bare / Blasted / Sanded / or Painted Valve Cover (for F23A1)
Need one to paint and do it up while mine remains on the car.

**Adjustable cam gear for the F23.
This is for a future project. I won't go into detail. But if you have a beaten down one that still holds everything in place, hit me up.

That's it for now. I will add more later. Help me work on the Accord with my boy!

REMEMBER - I have been the Emporer (wearing the cone like the Simpsons movie) of Hondas in my area for a very long time. I have TONS of Honda stuff.. 88-00 Civic / CRX / Del Sol stuff. Engine stuff up the ying yang. If you'd like to trade, ask me about it or about something in particular. I might just have it...or can get it. I'm the engine hoarder. I have tons of engines, heads, blocks, longblocks from 88-00. D16Y7 / D16Y8 / D16Z6 / ZC / D16A6, some random b-series stuff, Lots of EK body parts, CRX body parts, Del Sol body parts, etc. So if Accord isn't your only Honda interest, we may have something in common and can work a deal. With or without cash. I can also give you my eBay ID and a couple other forum IDs to reference me if you are weary of a "new guy".

I also have a complete, rolling shell 99 EX COUPE - Black - Full Interior. No engine or trans. I'd trade it whole for an F23 swap or possibly other stuff.

Agreed, mostly American iron around here. Hell even Craig's list is the same way. I've even looked in the Detroit metro section of Craig's list, and found nothing most of the time.

My son is a Civic guy though, and seems to be able to find what he needs on e-bay.

Re: Another wtb thread - f23 parts / coupe parts

I'll have an extra valve cover in really good condition sometime in the summer since I'm painting one I pulled when I get the time. Doubt you'd wanna wait that long though lol, would probably have better luck finding one at your local yard and cleaning it up
