    Default Honda Accord - Restoration Project

    As-Salam-u-Alaikum All,

    I am going to be restoring a Honda ACCORD 86 , the Car has been used very roughly by the previous owner, however the car is in one piece and not RUSTED !!!

    Things Busted

    1. Bumpers - both
    2. Lights - Rear
    3. AC - No Compressor / Condensor
    4. Tyres
    5. Mirrors - Side
    6. Suspension - Wobbly
    7. Poshish - Seats

    I need Help / Advice every type


    1. I need info on any good AC wala in Lahore who can give me the ORIGINAL fitting and COOLING

    2. Any ideas where I could find the Americanised ver of the rear lights

    3. Which Tyres would be good

    4. Any place where I could get Suspension parts (cheap)

    5. Where can I get the front Lights chromed from

    6. Would a TURBO be good on this ???

    7. Any idea where I could find the Antenna (radio wala)

    8. Would any other radiator fit in like for example "Corolla" ka , because they are easier to find or any other ?

    Are parts for this car available in Peshwar and are they cheaper as compared to Lahore

    The guys who clean lights from inside and repair them will offer u themself to use chrome/silver shinny paper inside the light. its not good as getting it chromed but serves the purpose of hidding the rusty spots and improving light quality as reflection inside the headlight is improved
