    1999 EXL Sedan - Update Thread

    I'm pretty much sticking to the plan of no more mods or unnecessary spending on this car. I did move back to Texas but I just have no interest in modding this car. It's not special to me, it's just a car at this point. 11 years 3 accidents and 165,250 miles takes its toll on a car. My car...

    1999 EXL Sedan - Update Thread

    Pics... thought I'd share the few things I've done with my Accord... 165,000 miles. :) Haven't done much to the exterior... mainly just the 94-95 EX wheels, spoiler, tint and the moonroof visor... Anyone notice I have taken the advice of many to ditch the OEM bra? Bring on the sunvisor hate...

    goodyear assurance triple tred

    These tires easily go 80k with normal rotations. They will dry rot before they wear out. Awesome tires, I plan to put these on next.

    Bought my manual swap parts today.

    EDIT - Ignore my post... should've read the whole thread. While I haven't actually done this swap, I don't see why you wouldn't go ahead and change the rear engine mount and the transmission mount(s) with new parts. Also, wise choice to go ahead and change your CV axles now, since they will...

    1999 EXL Sedan - Update Thread

    Pics later today.. but wanted to post some stuff :) Went to the salvage yard and scored a new leather seat cover from a 00 EX-L (no more rip!), took out my iPod deck in favor of the CD/Cass player that is stock. I like how clean it looks with the stock stereo in there... my aftermarket deck...

    New Front End

    I am not worried about the bra. Unlike many places, Austin TX doesn't have enough rain to let there be damaging condensation underneath the bra, and when it does rain I wash the car and take off the bra. I also clean it every time I wash the car in general. I drive on the highway non stop and I...

    New Front End

    Thanks everyone, I appreciate it! And yeah, the Tint was necessary so I could be shielded from the heat that my car puts out do to its good looks. What do you guys think, keep the headlights or go with the blackhoused? Part of me thinks the blackhoused would look good with the HMM and the...

    New Front End

    My 1999 Accord was victim of a frontal hit (not my fault), it damaged the hood, right fender, bumper cover and rad support. I took repairs into my one hands to make a like $$$ off of the insurance check and here is the result. I spent $1200 on two fenders, a hood, bumper cover, then $50 on...

    1999 EXL Sedan - Update Thread

    Long story short some girl backed in my accord. 148,350 miles now. Going strong, just replaced even more parts. Car has had 5g's worth of work since I bought it in Aug of 08 with 127k miles. Hopefully it will hold out! Take a looksee. The girls insurance paid me $2700. Going to...

    1999 EXL Sedan - Update Thread

    It came with my car when I bought it, and I only have it on when I do a lot of freeway driving as my Hood has a new paint job. The decal will come off, but I'm getting this instead. :p I gotta have it, sorry guys. Not going to lower it because I live in New Orleans and my car is...

    crunchhh. mustang vs. accord. stang wins.

    So now that I have 1000 to spend (I blew the other 300 on the stereo and detail)... I need to decide who is going to do my timing belt, and who I am going to take my car to for a really good look over to find out what's going on in terms of leaks or other problems. Dealer here wants $625 to do...

    Check out what the detail man was able to do. You can barely tell.

    crunchhh. mustang vs. accord. stang wins.

    I am I am. :) I'm selling it in 1-2 years and I need it to look good. The 2005 TL will be my DD then. The "other guy" is my Mother, and her insurance won't get me a rental because I'm not 18 yet. I might be able to get one if its in my Mom's name... but that's just more complication.

    crunchhh. mustang vs. accord. stang wins.

    I was going to keep all the money (they wrote me a check) and just have the paint buffed out in a detail. Then I was going to tint it, replace my stock HU and speakers, get the timing belt/water pump and my leaking rear main seal done ($800), and put the rest to my car note, which is $275...

    crunchhh. mustang vs. accord. stang wins.

    long story short, mustang took a good bite out the side of my Accord and with only a little paint transfer.:ohsnap: egh. insruance says it will be $1306 to fix. body shop at the honda dealer says a little more, because they forgot to include refinishing the rim. Essentially the drivers...

    Time for some bodywork!

    Well I'm going to hold off on the paint until I can 100% afford a top notch shop. I'll either stay with the Heathermist or I will get the new "Diamond White Pearl" that's on the 2008+ Accord. The Premium White Pearl on teg's is also nice, as well as tafetta white. But taf is really common and I...

    Time for some bodywork!

    I had considered it. Maybe I will go to a few different ones and ask to see examples of their work. That's the most important thing, to me. Now that I think of it... I wouldn't be surprised if Maaco did this body work. Rofl.

    Get your Carbon on!

    ok so tell me... What is so special about carbonfiber on your car? I understand a Hood, and trunk, for "weight reduction"... but I can't help but feel that doing this to your roof and your gas lid is rice to the max. I guess my mentality is just that I would rather have a clean looking...

    Time for some bodywork!

    The headlights look good from a distance. Up close they are peeling and have lots of pitting. They're also not as clear as they used to be. I already had an estimate done to replace the fenders, bumper cover, rad support (its kind of bent), the door ding trim (some idiot painted over it, and...
