Thread: Not a project... Shuttle '90.

  1. #1

    Default Not a project... Shuttle '90.

    My intro(clickable)
    Needed a build thread to dump my pics;

    First of all, this is not going to be a project, at least thats what I told myself.

    The original plan was to install some coilovers and a nice set of wheels and just cruise it for fun, about 9 months later, tis is what happened;

    So; the day I saw it up for sale; looked like a solid car, drove great and the owners clearly loved the car.


    Picked it up a few days later, the owner needed the car for a few more days. No problem
    So we did:



    Needed some rust fixed and some paint on the arches:


    Then this happened:


    Done a bit of work over 6 months,

    And now we here;











    Who am I kidding?

    Niiiiiiice. Looks super clean. Funny how projects tend to snowball! I love the grey paint and the black bumper/moldings.

    Was my choice too, could've gone with painted bumpers or a flashy color but I saw this combination on a stock Shuttle and I was pretty sure this is what it should look like.

    Those Futura's are not the new wheels, those are 18x9 18x10.5 5x112 PCD so no way they will fit. Futura's are for sale My Images are for sale too, hope to sell both sets soon so I can start building a new set adjusted to my wishes.

    Thanks man, Indoor @ Dumpd was pretty much a surprise for me.
    Got invited for indoor at the entrance, was a great compliment after 7 months of working on the car!

    I'm a total OEM+ freak so I like everything on my car being like how Honda could have done it (except for the Suspension and wheels)
    Car got a lot of detail to it that most people will never notice because it does looks like a stock Shuttle with some HondaAccess accesories..

    To list a few things;
    cleaned rear wiper, cleaned trunk lock, cleaned antenna, cleaned windscreen washers(if thats how they are called )
    Color is an OEM Honda color (most people don't realise that)
    Lip on the front bumper is from a Honda

    Thats how I like my cars, OEM parts, clean, low and great wheels.

    Thanks all for the positive!



    Next up will be the engine bay/engine.
    Should still look "stock" by the end of winter but I want people to think it's all brand new.
    Not sure on the exact plans tho, they may (and will) change along the way. Pretty much like the whole project did.

    And I want some other wheels next year, still not sure on what I want.

    Guess it is going to be a never ending project instead.

    OEM+ FTW! I can only hope my shuttle is this clean when I finally start on her. Absolutely beautiful man!

    yes I am, hahaha I remember. Didn't know it was white at the start;o looks very good this way. Maybe spacers in the back will add a little bit more awesommeness =D

    Wheels are for sale.
    If they dont sell Ill take them apart and refurbish them with wider lips.

    Great work! I've always wanted to completely redo one of these. I had a gray one briefly. But it was an auto so I sold it. Hard to find a 5 speed that isn't rusted out or beat up.

    I like the OEM+ look too. Which Honda is that front lip off of?
