2. full coolant flush + new radiator cap
3. drain and fill tranny fluid
4. drain and filled PS fluid
5. front brake pads installed
6. yellow fog lights (go the bulbs, but not in yet) --> btw, how do i get the ground wire off the housing?
7. oil change :D
8. engine base cleaned and detailed

Welcome to the board. Sharp Accord. I can't wait to see what you do with the Celica, but please, shy away from the invader kit. ;)

Hang around and get to know the locals. Lots of good information lurks within.

Welcome... i likes teh Honduh. You don't need to take the grounding out to put the fog lights in... The cap just twists off, disconnect wires from that, take the clip off the bulb, replace, and good to go. It's a crappy job because you can't see what you're doing, but you don't need to take the whole thing off, if that's where you were going...

:)

Oh... and yellow fog lights FTW!

i plan to just get tc rims and a K&N drop in filter for the car..other than tht, it'll stay fairly stock... i drive 60 miles day to and from work, so i bought this car just for tht :wiggle: and abt the invader kit, i gotta say.... :slap: no way will i put tht on my car!

the accord is now a garage queen, and i'm hoping to put it in a couple car shows after i get my turbo installed

Good to know that you're getting rid of those steelies. New wheels will make all the difference.
