So one of my fog bulbs had blown and there was also a crack in one of the lenses.
I thought, while I changed the bulb I'll swap the lenses out for some yellow ones. Quick easy, 10min job. How wrong was I :lol:
Two days of drilling out rounded off and seized screws and bolts.

Then eventually when I split the 1st fog open, it disintegrated into a pile of white salting looking dust.

Fortunately I had some 4th gen prelude fogs lying around. which looked pretty similar...
The lenses were the same shape and the holes lined up with the accord brackets that mount the fogs to the bumper. But the lude ones had fins on hte back that foulded on top of the brackets.
So I got the grinder out and cut them off

Installed

Then I swapped my fender lights out for some clear ones

After that I decided to fit my clear indicators and also swapped my clear corners back in

Damn it, just love your car, turned what is, in my opinion, a handsome family wagon, (where they called Accord Tourers then?), into something I would immediately pull over respectively to allow your speedy progression past me, hehe. Awesome car.

Thanks for such kind words.
It was called an Accord Wagon in the US and Japan and an Aerodeck in UK

Profile Update - Re: SiR - Out of hibernation


As some of you know if you've got me on social media etc. Last August the wagon developed a knocking from the bottom end and has been sat away since.
Well I pulled her out of hibernation last week and gave her a clean ready for the heart surgery.

And the donor car for the new heart
