i dont think anyone on this site does, but i know ppl do on H-T.

its barely any diff than your stock lip tho, a tiny bit lower. not worth it, IMO.

Re: The search for a clean front lip continues- an OEM ACCORD front lip?

that red one has accord lips all teh way around right?

it looks great on your white one and that random black one.

i've gotta start looking around for one.

The thing is I can't find any rears that I like other than the accord rear lip. I can't really find any sides that will match it other than perhaps the OEM prelude one or even an OEM accord one. Then the front becomes inadequate. I was consdiering doing a Mugen style replica but then i feel like it comes down too far past the sides/rear. So I figure dthe accord oem one will do better than the prelude oem one but still not TOO agressive.

Not to mention that it will be cheaper for me and something that I can replace mine with NOW and not have to wait for it to be painted.


mine looks like **** right now whoever repainted teh car before me did a ****ty job and they attempted to paint the front lip with probably no prep, so now its all ****ty/peeling.

Someday i'll repaint the whole car but thats at least a year away or so---

Re: The search for a clean front lip continues- an OEM ACCORD front lip?

that can only be described as perfection in my book.

could you possibly post up pics of the rear end as well?

I know I was asking for front lip pictures but the car looks so hot I just gotta see what the rear end/rear lip looks like on it.

Re: The search for a clean front lip continues- an OEM ACCORD front lip?

Hell yah! I remember the 5 lug swap thread from before. Can't wait to see that sh*t! I got mine cause it was cheap off of my buddy and I really needed a car. I was 1 week away from having to report to NC, and I was in PA, with no car. lol I love the car though, and wouldn't give it up for anything, it just happens to be a complete mess with 279xxx miles.

Hmm, are there any modifications to get an accord lip to fit on a 4th gen? Or does it bolt right on?

yeah you have to trim it according to your mudflaps if you decide to keep them on like i did, also you'll have to make new bolt holes, and the middle piece since its '3 pieces' will need trimming.

Would a 96 4dr accord lip work on a 4th? If so, I may just get out late one night and take the lip off my moms car :P

Re: The search for a clean front lip continues- an OEM ACCORD front lip?

this isn't my sale, but I know how hard it was for me to find an accord rear lip in decent shape so I figured i'd drop this guy's thread here for any of you who maybe interested in picking up a rear lip---
