Re: What'd you do to your accord today?

Nice haha I might look into hard race ones cuz even after I get my alignment my car still pulls in a direction and when I drive over bumps my car follows the bumps. Pretty sketchy

Re: What'd you do to your accord today?

Got the fenders wrapped recently, sideskirts and door guard trim have been wrapped as well (no pictures of them wrapped). Gotta say wrapping is pretty enjoyable, just sucks that I have to bondo all of these dings and dents before I can wrap the rest of the car.

Re: What'd you do to your accord today?

Hrmm, guess I'll take a crack at my most recent updates. Glad to see this thread is still alive and kicking. I've actually done roughly one upgrade per year as time permits if there is interest i could always rebuild my main thread. But the most recent is..

Suspension upgrade:
KYB AGX Adjustables Front/Rear

Re: What'd you do to your accord today?

I added some Lucas engine stop leak today to the accord.

And I added an fender intake tube to the Tundra last night. Throttle response is up and the butt dyno says I gained some. Now the testing of 0-60 after I get my new performance air filter.

That's hella cheap. A whole car wrapped for around 400 bucks... people pay thousands for a wrap job at a shop. I wish I had the skills to do it myself. I would mess up so bad if I did it on my own

It's honestly not that difficult, just play around with it and you'll understand how to work the wrap. Granted my wrap job probably won't be as nice as a professional's but it's a good learning experience
