Heres a few photos of my 1996 Honda Accord EX Widebody Conversion. I did the $50 Rustoleum paint job on it. Painted it with a roller. At the bottom I'll put a link to the whole thread.




Heres a link to the $50.00 Paint job write up on my accord. Gen5Alive.com

Get some wheels then I'll give my opinion.
It'll stop that rear bumper looking so wide.
Im not a fan of roller jobs i save that for old vans but it does look like pro roller work. You've done this before :lmao
+ i hate fiber glass its crap to work with and distorts too much like the rear spoiler is doing.

Nope. First time doing a roller job. I'm please with the outcome. I know not everybody is diggin the wide body. But I like it. Its different and probably the only 2 Door accord wide body out there. I think the best thing about my car is nobody knows what kind of car it is, well except for other accord owners. Headlights and taillights give it away. Also I molded the mirrors in from a 96 eagle talon, and the gas door is off of a 94 Lumina Van.

yea from the passenger side it looks just like some messed up mustang.

I like the body design of accords as is, the only thing they realy need IMO is a small drop in the front and back of no more than 1 inch and some 16" rims with 205-225s on them with an aspect ratio of like 40-50.

Theres a few fender modifications on the front that dont look bad, theres some with vents on them, I've seen on another accord in this thread. I believe they are carbon fiber.

Also some retro fitting some HID's that would look like the newer BMW type of headlamp would look nice. besides that I don't think that there is anything I would do besides keep it looking good by wash and wax it like you love it.

My roller job:



So dont be "hatin" on roller jobs lol. $50 well spent in my opinion and it was done 2 years ago. Its a lot of work though

BTW no really feeling the widebody. But if u like it, that all that matters.

Im actually very impressed at that roller job!
I use the fine decorating ones and do loads of coats and keep polishing back but I've never had a finish like that.
You sir are a master of the roller :lmao
