New Project Honda

So, I picked up a 1993 Honda Accord for basically nothing the other day. It needs a lot of work, but most of it I think I can do myself. I am going to turn it into my project Ecomod car since I don't have much in it and it will never be worth much either. (300k on the odometer and 23 years old) I told my wife it was probably going to be ugly and not much for anybody else but I want to go nuts with it. Probably as much custom homemade mods as possible to keep costs down and a lot of driver retraining as well. According to fuelly.com, these average around 24.6 mpg so I think my target will be 30 mpg to start and then we will go from there.

Will do. I'm putting the extra limitation of a $1000 budget for this build. I'm 200 in so far for the car and synthetic trans fluid and new filter.

There goes another hundred.

How are you going to change the filter?

Actually, I'm 200 in including those parts. I haven't ever done a trans in a honda, but between myself and my uncle we should have it covered. Why do you ask? Is it more difficult than I realize or something?
