Thanks man. The grill is a replica Asian Accord Grill. 29 bucks shipped from China from Ebay. Here is the seller's store if you are interested.

http://myworld.ebay.com/ebaymotors/axlautocom/

Apparently he does not have anything for sale right now as he is upgrading his store. The grill will require modification to fit. It took about 3 hours total time plus waiting for some glue to dry.



Here is the car with the grill only. I also added a chrome strip on the hood to complement it.



And this is with the chrome hood trim.



The chrome hood trim is also an Ebay piece that cost 50 bucks shipped. Here is a link:

The speakers sound awesome. The stock speakers sounded good but these sound even better. The highs are MUCH more clear. I mounted my tweeters in the stock location and turned the -10db crossover tweeter switch to off. As clear as the highs are, I have the treble down farther and I do not see any need to mount them in the door as some insist on doing.

I did have to enlarge the speaker holes in the door though



I also dynamatted the rear speaker shelf top and bottom to quell unwanted vibrations that resulted in the speaker upgrade. I have the dynamat for the front doors but have not gotten around to it yet.

The rear seats now have three way speakers too so the sound is just so much more clear. Bass is very good, but it doesn't quite sound like I have a pair of 12s in the trunk.

No minuses as far as the intake goes. Just a nice growl. I do not have my internal accelerometer tuned well enough to determine how much faster it feels.

Here is my old intake setup!

That's right. If you need anything from Fry's in Gwinnett, come see me in the telecom department.

Very nice!
Your Accord looks sharp!
shes purrrrfect
Thank you thank you thank you very much.

$8 ebay grill FTL...OEM parts FTW!!!! welcome
There's one in every group. This time it was you.

Much appreciated. I am not sticker crazy either, but since it was small I said what the heck. I honestly do not even notice it anymore.

Very cleanly done. Gonna do tint? trunk lip?
Yes and yes. Both are planned. I am considering either the OEM lip or this subtle wing I found on Ebay.



I do not like the syle of the OEM spoiler. It looks like it has an upward motion to it, which is opposite of what a spoiler is supposed to at least pretend to do. The 6th gen and 8th gen spoilers look great though.

looks nice good work
Muchas gracias.

Very tastefully done. :thmsup:
That is one hot 7th gen. I love the grill. Much better than the stock US one IMO..
Thanks! Yes both the 7 and 7.5 gen grills do not look this good I agree. I think they did that on purpose for the USDM Accord so it would look less like a TL.




Future mods besides tint and rear lip include Tein SS, Ingalls rear camber kit, J pipe and painted mudguards.

Will do.

Any idea where you are gonna get your tint done? A friend uses a place down in Duluth but was looking for somewhere a little closer.

I have not yet decided where to go. I've been quoted 165 for my car plus the front windows of my wife's 4Runner.
