    Caution: You may die from old age before this car is done!

    I'm between jobs and strapped for cash but as soon as the money gets
    flowing you'll see progress.
    _______________________________________________________

    The Car:
    1993 Accord LX
    Tranny: 5-Speed
    Engine:
    F22A1

    Price: $250.00
    Objective: My dream CB7

    _______________________________________________________

    Not bad for 250 bucks^_^

    I have all the parts you see missing.

    The engine has about 215k on it but runs great. The tranny has no problems and has a new clutch. I removed the valve cover for a spray paint project :D

    Im probably gonna just swap for a H22. Havent really decided yet.

    BrutalB83 keep an eye on this topic when you get chances. Your advice is always helpful :)

    It always sucks how things never work out. The build is still going to happen its just taking forever to get started.

    NO FEAR!
    It will happen.

    Dont rush yourself, its a project, if you go to fast youll just get burnt out on it, if you dont feel like working on it then dont. I just put some Si door panels in my EF hatch today and that was the first time Ive touched it for almost a month. ^_^ But anyways GL with it and keep us updated.

    I wanna get to work on it but money and time are getting so tight. Gas just went up again from $4.18 to $4.52 a gallon. It takes $20.00 to get a quarter tank in my Accord its so sad. :( Maybe ill swap to a motor that runs off rubber bands :D

    Rubber band H22 swap pushin about 400 horse :D:D:D

    Nice! I had a CB7 also, but it's gone now...but I was trying to get a 92-93 coupe to replace it. Good to see more people building CB7s!

    definately a good looking car for $250. I picked up my integra a year ago for $400 and it had massive body damage, and 175,000 miles. You made out like a bandit.

    Rotted rear quarters... Not that bad i just don't like doing rust repair. I'm also thinking about trading it for a 92 accord wagon 5-speed with title for parts car. It makes me so sad to see my lil black accord sitting here gutted. :( If anyone wants the shell with title for like $200 let me know I'm getting pics up now.
