Hey IA,
I'm Gene(some call me Joe) I've been a member on here since '08 when i had a mustang, but i haven't used my account since. I'm really big on "Stanced" cars, so i decided to buy this CB chassis to work on. The parts and mods are vast to do what i have planned... so that being said here you go. Enjoy..:D

Sorry for the phone piks.. No dig cam..
(the night i bought it. we celebrated at Popeye's :rofl)

it's straighter, but the inner portion is still titled. I'll address that soon.:dunno:



I picked up some new wheels from my local CL. They aren't as aggressive as i anticipated, but they fit really good. All i can say until i get my new tires, is that they aren't something you probably use to seeing.:D

Next pay period I'll do a few measurements for the rear wheels to see if i should have then widened 3" and change the offset. Also, the hood with be addressed and a thousand other things. Hopefully smaller tires will be ordered soon too(I hate how ballooned these are) Then body work and paint WOOTY WOOT!!! But thanks for looking and PEACE!!!

Gloss. I can't see an older wagon with matte paint. I may be wrong and it may turn out great but for now I can't see it. Once I swap shells, I am having it painted North Shore Blue Pearl from the CRZ, in case that color catches your eye.

Thanx guys for your input.. I think im staying with the Gloss.. Like y'all said, Keep it clean and restore its beauty. Besides, the matte for honda's is so typical imo..

These would have been installed this Tuesday or wednesday, but the Low Lifestyle has its dividends:o

This happened today on my way back from church. Heading to Khols. There was a unfinished portion of the road and the city bolted down a steel plate to cover it. Needless to say, the rain and the placement of the repair was Perfect!!! :mad

i'm upset you're doing all these other mods and the 5 spd lug conversion isnt being done, other than that..good progress, except the steel plate fiasco. FINISH THAT 5 LUG CONVERSION

mixed_body
05-14-2012, 02:28 PM
Yea, but the 5 speed swap wasn't in the near future, the 5 lug was, but i cracked my trans case yday. So, the lug conversion became second to putting the car back on the road ASAP. The door cards was being done only to occupy my urge until i had enough BANK for the tires ( doors card mod 12.00) Plus, it took me a while to find the rear 5 lug conversion for a decent price other than the ridiculous 300+ ppl most wanted. I'm trying bro, i promise no other project will be next other than getting the wheels on.. I hate looking at only two wheels:cry:

Soft suspension is soft.
Yeah, I have F&Ft2's 12/8k and they're too soft on full stiff. But im super low too lol. I think my fender to ground measured 21 1/4 or 1/8 one of them and that's without me or my gf in it




SMALL UPDATE
Trans mount bracket (weld-on) was ordered this morning. If, they requested the right part, i should have it by Thursday (fingers crossed). Thursday, i will be picking up my rear spindles to complete my 5 lug conversion.

If the weather holds off until late Friday, i can have the rear five lug complete. Saturday morning i will get started on the rest of my trans install.


Does anyone know a place or website where i can order an 8 ft Stainless Steel(SS) brake line with 10mm male and 12mm male screw-in fitting?

Well, for all the I|A members who was pissed that i still haven't put the rear wheels on yet, Be intrigue.

I just sold the old rear 4 Lug knuckles for 200.00(thanx guy) and i will be installing the rear hubs and tires this week!!! No other choice.

Also, i fell to realize that I improperly installed my clutch kit (not fully torqued).
Trans drop #3
So, tonight i'll go to HF to get a torque wrench and torque down all the pressure plate bolts. Hopefully that will solve my engaging issue...

Parts List:

98 Prelude Hub bearings
98 Prelude Rotors
98 Prelude Caliper and brackets
92 Accord Hub washer and nut

Originally i was going to use my rear spindle but the shafts was too large.

Are you bleeding them in the correct order? Car doesn't have ABS, correct?

Yea it's an ex with brakes.. You think something is stopping the system? I bled the furthest to closet from the master

The braking system operates diagonally. If your right rear is furthest from the MC, Id try the right rear first then bleed the front left, and follow that by bleeding the left rear third and the front right last. That is what I would *think* would be correct but look around on Google to see if there is a definitive bleed sequence for your generation with ABS.

Most importantly, the height is perfect to rest your arm on.:alright I will be purchasing another style sooner or later.

They were polished already and i desided to paint them -_-, because i thought they would look Latino Lowrider style!

Polished is more that style, but to be more accurate, chrome is where it is in the lowrider community. Some people do paint spokes on wires, but it isn't quite as common as all chrome.

Don't forget bodywork. Car needs quite a bit around the fenders.

mixed_body, don't let the above replies by me confuse you. I love wagons. I really like the wagon version of the Accord you have. I like your car. What I'm not fond of is it is too low for the tires. As low as it sits, the tires look factory size. In other words, too tall. I do love that you left it on 15" wheels, though. That's on the top end of the real lowrider thing. They would've looked terrible painted white. They don't look bad painted the way they are now, but they don't look all that good. That polished look would have been perfect for your car. With the size and ride height your car has and that particular style of wheel, polished would fit perfectly.

My opinion in finality? Either raise the car an inch or so or put smaller sidewall tires on it, put the wheels back to polish, clean up the dents and dings and paint.

Good job, though, homey. Later, QD.

Not saying who, though.

Lolol. Painted is NOT lowrider style, my friend. Polished is more that style, but to be more accurate, chrome is where it is in the lowrider community.

First off i wan to say that i love your classic honda :)

Now, when i was talking about the low rider style I was referring to the polished look. I know with the wheels off the car they didn't really do it for me

http://i1217.photobucket.com/albums/dd383/Eugenious1/20111224_101528.jpg
:no:
So, I painted them a color to compliment the design and my car's color.

BTW, I would never put paint on any car, before bodywork... I'm not some 12 year old, i've been wrenching for years.:goodjob:
As for me raising the car! :lmao: NEVER!!! I got in an argument with the wifey and my father, because of its impracticality. These tires was bought to get the car on the road. Once, i get an alignment i'll get smaller tires (165 55 15). This car isn't for everyone. The fitment and stance of the car will not be sacrificed for comfort.


Body work and paint will come shortly, depending on my living conditions within the next 6 or 7 months. I may be moving.

Thanx for your imput man! All you guys supporting the car helps me to keep going:goodjob:

Trust me when i say raise it because of the tire sidewall height, I was only saying that because of how odd it looks with tall walls. I'm probably the most extreme person you'll come across when it comes to (the real deal) slamming cars. Being doing that since 1987. So don't think I'm advocating raising your car, lolol. Now a shorter sidewall will definitely get rid of the odd look. Personally, though, for me disliking stretching tires, I would go with the more common 195/50-15. Great low sidewall for being that low and more rubber contact.

Also, I didn't mean to insinuate that you didn't know what you were doing in regards to you painting the car. I was just filling in the blanks, so to say, to other responders.

And lastly, those pics of the wheels in polished look are astounding. The pics aren't but the wheels are, lolol. I can only imagine how gorgeous your car would look with those wheels polished and a paint job on it.

But like I said, do you, man, and it's all good. And thank you for the compliment on my car. I do appreciate it. We need to meet someday, man. Later, QD.

I disagree. On both counts, but for the purpose of this particular reply, on the choice of interior fabric. I didn't notice it until you mentioned it, Genji, but that Hawaiian motif is awesome. But the trick to really making it look good, is to continue that throughout and not just partially. I would do inserts on the seats that way and probably create an insert in the headliner with it. Not too much as then it would just get too busy. Combine those inserts with black fabric or a royal blue to match the outerior of the car. Later, QD.

Sorry if i can off as defensive. I just like to protect my car's integrity and accomplishment. yeah, i might consider the tire size. i dont like have such a small contact patch so i'll see once the tire ordering time comes.

O that wasn't last of the fabric you'll see. I'll be incorporating that with the trunk cover and i'll add black silk to the roof liner. This will all be tied in with darker carpet and leather seats.

Wow :thinking: the last person I thought that would contest the fabric, lol. I guess i could see that motif working tho, but I still think an elegant black suede with polished knick-knack accents would look better.

No, dude, I didn't see you as offensive. And yes, if you run a 195/50-15, you'll have plenty of contact with pavement and a nice, low tire wall size. What is the width of the wheel?


haha thanx man, and nah the print is staying for now... It's consistent for the look im going for like the wood shifter. I'll be adding a stained wheel too.

At first, I didn't think the wood shifter would work with a Hawaiian theme, but now I think it really would. Especially using the wood steering wheel and maybe some wood dash trim.

Cool shit, man. With the roof liner, what I was saying was maybe have the outer area of the liner in the black silk and the inner part as the same Hawaiian print. I can PAINT it for a better look if you want. Lolol. Just throwing shite out there.

Well hello sexy ladies and that one fellow! Since my last update many moons has passed and much cash has been blown, but the wagon hasn't be completely neglected. As time went on i realized i didn't want to dump too much into my dreams this year. So i scraped the VIP look, cause it was kinda overwhelming trying to mix/match/mod parts. After, sitting down and thinking..... hmmm what response do i want from my build??? "Yo that's SICK!" "Meh" "Wow that's cray" Which i think the "cray" comment is my goal.

Thanx man, yeah they're just temp wheels! The new color scheme? It's color you'll like it in the end (hopefully):yes:





Well since my last update date...
I put my old wheels up for sell and they finally sold today :( Then, one of my buddys had a pair of flares that i need to fit the new wheel specs. So here are the flares i picked up today. They're a little beat up cause of drifting, but i got them for a Great Price :eyebrows
