My other Accord, 86 S Hatchback

I never been a lot in here since I registered in 2011 i think. Same if I look new here, well in fact, I am not. I am actual co-owner of the Quebec Accord Club and into Accord world since 95-ish. Some saw it into the 9th section, I am owner of a 2014 Touring Sedan CVT I4 since few months. Had before many other Accord gen mixed. But there is one I always kept with me. And it is my good old 1986 S hatchback. I first bought it from an old lady. Car didn't had 100 000km on it. She was not doing 5000 km a year. And I did some modification that, since all those years.... are still undone.... shame on me! lol

Here it is! My soooo long... too long... project!

I miss her SOOOOO much.
Here'S some pics of the progression
Preparing the shaving and the custom side skirt.

And the result on Primer.

Shaving the top!

Next step, molding the front 88-89 bumper with the custom lip.

the bumper is 4" too long on the side. It come from a 4th gen Accord. But well, the rear one is almost done!

Now about the front one. He's on the car only to see what's needed to modify. He's not yet started! As you can see, he have a yellow tape. The part behind this tape need to be cut to give the car a great shape to the wing and let the 18" get in there easily. The front bumper is SOOOOOO round compared with the OEM one. So, it will be impossible to get the bumper "square" as the OEM. The corner light get almost over the bumper.... So, we will work to modify the bumper to get a bigger corner without destroying the general look of the bumper. Where you can see the horn, will be filled with a fog light. Can't be better than Hondaman87 did! (props to him as always!!!) There's A LOT of work to fit this 90-93 accord bumper there and keeping a great look. AS IS right now, the headlight can't close. The bumper get under the light too far.... Hondaman87, what did you do?!?!??! What have you changed to get this awesome look?!?!

Look at this POOR car.... We can almost say tha she is smiling saying:"WOohoo!!! I got some bumper!!!" lololol

and WAY WAY WAY more!!! lol

I was curious about what I'm assuming is yellow adhesive you used on the side skirt.

I need something like that with a strong bond for an upcoming project. If it is adhesive, what did you use?

Looks good so far!
