Weekend Toy Owned by nelly

  • Hi there this is my Accord Type-T bought it in august last year as a winter project to keep me sane through the winter months.Im lucky I've had it inside my work garage next door so I've been able to jump on it when I've had a spare min. Hoping to have it finished for april-may to use through the summer period,it needed a lot of work and plenty of love but Im pleased how its coming on. Under side finished new fuel lines,sub frame removed,sand blasted and painted every component cleaned and refitted,all worn parts replaced just for peace of mind.Front drivers side bulkhead and sill needed plenty of welding so that was boxed off first job and the engines spot on which is good,anyway ill stop rambling on and get some pictures up if I can not that good on computers.I also have a 93 Prelude jdm which I finished last year ill put some pics of that up too,bye for now... Neil.

    Modifications & Optional Extras

  1. Thanks again guys for your positive comments means alot,the subframe luckly was just surface rust even though it looked shocking just checked it for strength before i made a decision on sandblasting.
    But i think another 12 months and car would have been scraped, as regards to the M5 its my mates he's been traveling for 15 months I've tried buying it off him but he's having none of it.....theres time yet.I take it out now and then GOD it goes like a rocket :Grin:
