new lude owner

last saturday i finally found a 4th gen after 2 years of waiting and searching.

94 s model

fully stock and untouched!

140k on the odo

f22a1 w/5spd

the bads:
carpet
passenger window motor
antenna
radio
small shake when braking
no temp/fuel gauge






now 3 days after getting it my mom bf backed into it crippling the quarter :(



but all is good a friend of mine told me to swing by his house and we'll get it back straight currently its all pulled back out except for the very middle
the sill is now straight and not twisted like in the picture

i'll have pics up tonight after he's done working on it today.

in other news today while my quarters being fixed, i'll be installing a cheap gauge set i picked up at oreillys for $35, adding in a strip of LED's for lighting
they will be mounted behind the smoked glass of the dash :)

although i still won't have a gas gauge for now the new oil/temp/batt gauges should come out looking very good :)

i have a friend 2hrs away that has some tokico 5 way adj shocks and tein lowering springs, dc header and some other random stuff ill be picking up from him in a week.

as for wheels the accord wheels are staying until i can find the perfect fitment wheels
