Introduction: This site was dedicated to my first project car - customizing my '99 Honda Accord EX.  This hobby started out innocently enough when I decided to put my usual tweaks on this car.  In the past, I've typically tinted the windows, added some custom wheels, a wing, window visors, and then added a few interior items.  I was looking on the Internet (the real devil in all of this)  for  AutoVentshades-brand window visors when I ended up stumbling upon some Honda after-market parts websites.  Soon my visions of putting on a leather shift knob and calling it a day mutated into some serious research on modifying many systems on the car in an effort to make it a fire breather.  I soon found out that, due to the limitations of both the base engine and the lack of a large after-market demand for such parts, this would never be a road rocket.  However, there still are a lot of performance parts that can be added to give it a little more oomph than what it normally would possess.  Mission: Accomplished.
