its not hard at all, you can google it for instructions, even though it will not be for an accord it will be the same.

now for my opinion....I have done it to my car....and now its no longer on the car. IMO I would never have done it....so for what its worth I say dont do it!!!!!

What are the reasons that you guys did not like it??? Did it make it hard to get things in and out of your trunk... or you just did not like the way that it looked???

Let me know...

Thanks

1) you will be drilling into your car, and when you want to remove it (trust me the time will come when you want to) you will have holes in your trunk.

2) The trunk doesnt sit a perfect 90% like you see the civics doing. its folds in about 20% more

3) if you dont get everything just right your trunk is going to be off and when you close the trunk you can and will hit the parts of the car against each other (ie: the tail lights on the car, tails to tails car trunk to body panel....)

4) the trunk may possible fall down when set in the flipped position.

5) you need to find something to hold the trunk to make it look good...ok you find something...but it sticks out like a sore thumb...now what?

6) the threads for the screws on the trunk dont like being screwed and un-screwed over and over...over time they will be come warn and stop holding on to the bolt.

7) when closed the part of the trunk closes to the window will stick up a few mm more then before and look odd and may but not necessarily let water in

8) should i go on?.....
