Pictures of My Modified Grill

I really wanted to change the grill to one with mesh, but I couldn't find any mesh, so I modified the original like this instead... Let me know what you think..

That looks like the grill on the 6th Gen Sedans!!!
Also those headlight washers have got to go!!!!! They are awful!!! They look like back up sensors! and without wiper blades like volvo and MB I dont see how they can be useful. Just another hole to get wax in!!!!!

You saw that huh? My waxing skills leave a little something to be desired...

It's a 98. I had to cut the centre section out and form a new centre bar from scrap plastic and bodyfiller. It is perfectly straight, although the shadow looks funny in one of the pics.

The point of the nozzles is they have a high enough pressure to remove most of the dirt. I never use them, since I never let it get that dirty! But I like having another blue button on my dash!

OK, these are very bad pics..

http://www.sheol.org.uk/car/Dash.JPG
http://www.sheol.org.uk/car/Dash1.JPG

The button for the washer is the illuminated one underneath the radio. The control next to it is headlight level adjustment, which is something I don't think you have.

I've seen a few cars with headlight washers, but they draw too much attention from the police to be very popular. Personally, I think they look terrible! I've never seen another Accord Coupe in this country, they aren't popular cars, mainly because our 4 door accord is much cheaper (My car cost $33,500, new!), and is sold as, I think an Acura TL in the US. At that price, the accord coupe has to compete with the peugeot 406 coupe, which is a better car, so the accord was withdrawn from sale in around 2000. Of course, I bought second hand and got myself a bargain .

You can also see from the second pic, I am badly in need of some reverse indiglos. I've had them on order for more than a month now, with no sign of them showing up....

Interesting...

You do not have a V6, yet you have the EX V6 climate control.

Aha, my secret is out I have an ES with a 2.0 I4 SOHC VTEC engine... Another reason the coupe was unpopular, since the saloon has a DOHC engine that really sings when the VTEC wakes up...

how do those headlight level adjusters work? does it control the light intensity or the angle of the headlights? cuz that would be a cool DIY project for someone to do (and make a nice write up for the technologically declined like me)

It adjusts the angle of the headlights, so that if you have passengers in the rear seat, or something heavy in the boot, you don't blind oncoming drivers...

Off Topic,

But shogun, where did you get your E-Codes from?

Tee Pee, are the Headlight levelers automatic or manually operated?

thought in the UK they usually used KMH (kilometers per hour) w/e, u know what I'm talkin about. You have MPH, didn't know.

I was gonna say if you do have the KMH gauges, do they fit the 6th gens. here? I don't mind gettin some KHM gauges to be unique and (JDM) haha.

The headlight levelers are manually operated (which is why theres a control on the dash!). It's a 0-1-2-3 slider, mine is at 2 cos I had a couple of computers in the boot, but it would normally be at 0.

We use mph here in the UK, in spite of the laws from europe our government keeps trying to force on us (like, it's actually illegal to buy a pound of something, it has to be in kg...) I don't think thats something they can change very easily...

Teepee is from Europe

You are the first one with E-code lamps that have the leveling system working. Can you PM me the list of part #'s for the sliding switch you described and the wiring diagram on how to hook them up. I know it is a lot to ask but you are the only one that has it working on there car.

And you called the sedan a salon, a way of telling the person is really from Europe .
