hey guys im back - (now modding a 92 accord)

Been awhile since ive posted on here, had a tercel that i was ecomodding but life got in the way and had to movie out of state so left my cars behind to start fresh. Recently picked up a 92 accord, has 331k miles on her but in great condition. Literally 1 owner who documented everything that was done so said ok and paid 1k for her. Been driving her around and shocked shes still getting decent mpg, cant get accurate readings till i get my guino and do runs with her. Im ecomodding her with few things here and there, such as removed ac and excess stuff i dont need, installing a garden border thing on bumper to reduce drag, wheels are staying the same since oem rims that arent open pretty much solid disc rims, going to lower it down to reduce wind as much as i can.

Kinda gonna add a nice stock oem look/feel but focus on max mpg on her. Ill post pics soon on her for what she looks like and why it was such a good deal. Just gotta do some maintenance on her since it sat for almost a year, grrr o well complete new brakes system going on. Glad to be back ecomodding espically here in florida were its already dinging 4 bucks a gallon for regular.
