Well...made my very first mod today on the Accord..though it is a bit "ricer"..if I understand that term correctly... ricer = all show..no go

I wanted the Silverstars or my AEM CAI(being purchased from a SHO member), but...
Silverstars...can't get damn locking ring off...and loaned my strap wrench out
CAI...haven't recieved it yet...

So, I had bid on this item on ebay..figuring I probably wouldn't win with as many bidders as they had...but I did. While waiting for my Simple Green to do it's job. I installed it....


You may notice I had already removed the handle, before I remembered to get a pic..hence the button sticking out a bit too far



I hope the tuner gods will forgive me ...I may keep the boot, but go back to the stock handle. Not sure yet

Well back to detailing...

B&M sells a kit to make your column shifter for an auto to a manual looking stick on the floor for trucks.

LOL - I was thinking the same thing!

Then I remembered that would be gay - actually a little more gay than making an auto look like a manual.

Raz :p

When your RPMs get high enough just put your hand on it and pretend to shift it, so your passengers can comment how smooth you are shifting! They'll be saying "Wow man taht iz teh r0x0rz how smooth you are G!" or something like that :rolleyes

The wood trim was done by my in-laws when they bought the car. All the lovely maple is fastened with screws, not adhesive, thus I am stuck with it. Unless I want the lovely screw holes to appear throughout the dash, door panels and console. The pennies, lighter , etc...things I found under the seats, under the console and such...I am detailing the car for the first time since I got it home just before Christmas...

Now as far as the faux 5-sp...I knew the "stuff" would fly when I posted this :nuts ...but hey, haven't we all done something a little stupid we regret admitting! :kick
I only hope this is my first and last...but only the Tuner Gods know for sure what lies ahead...

BTW...Just became a fully paid...reallife premium member :clap

I have a suggestion for that woodgrain shit...I hate wood grain in any car whether it was there from factory or put there by someone...

you can either....

go to a junkyard and find your trimming (all the woodgrain shit) and just buy it and reinstall it....

OR

find a paint shop and ask them how much they would paint all that stuff to make it black, grey, gunmetal or whatever color matches your interior...

believe me it would look 100 % better than that shit in there now..

and on the shift knob..I had that idea back in the day but i never did do it...but I dont think its a bad looking idea..b/c half of your friends already know its auto anyways so whats the big deal...if you like it its your car..

btw I guess Im back..i havent been here in like 3 mths.. :clap
