'99 Accord/Skyline Conversion

Home  \  Asian Imports  \  '99 Accord/Skyline Conversion

Hey, I have a '99 Accord Coupe. Looking around online I found this awesome blue Accord that was converted into a Nissan Skyline. I love the look of it and want to try to do something like that to my car. I found the body kit, the trademark Skyline tail lights but the thing that I wasn't sure about was the head lights. This car's headlights were modified to make them resemble the Skyline's almost down to a "T". The regular Accord head lights wrap around the sides of the car alot more than those of the Skyline. So my question is what was done to this Accord's headlights to make it look like that? Was it a purely custom job or is there an actual conversion kit or something out there that I can get to make my Accord look just as good? If so, what?... new fenders and head lights? I did look around on the internet for this but couldn't find anything quite like it, help is GREATLY appreciated, thank you so much.

probably just a sticker job, covering that section of the headlight

you can get em for the tops of headlights to make em look angry and such

Here, I put the converted Accord's headlight as my signature so you should be able to check it out. Doubtful it's a sticker job, hopefully you'll be able to see the picture and then make your assesment. Thanks.

Why would you bother? If you want your car to look like a Skyline, then get rid of it and buy a real Skyline. If you like your Honda, then be proud of what it is and don't try to turn it into something it isn't.

Ok, well first off, I don't have the kind of money that I can just go out and buy the Skyline of my choice, sorry. Secondly, I don't like the look of my Honda, if I did I wouldn't be "tuning" the look of it. Also, isn't that kind of the point of a body kit; to make your car look different, perhaps more appealing to the eye. This is my goal. Nothing against whoever decided that THIS is what a '99 Accord is suppose to look like, I just think it's too plain and therefor I shall modify it's look. Whether that modification be adding a front bumper or a wing or converting my headlights to look like that of a Nissan Skyline, that's just what I think will look best. Finally this is a forum where people ask questions and other people answer. Although I do respect everyone's opinion I don't think that yours was necessary. I simply asked what was done to the headlights to make them look like that. For you to come out of nowhere and pretty much say "BUY A SKYLINE YOU POSER" was inappropriate. Someone made an R33 and R34 body kit for my car for a reason and I would like to make use of that. My outlook may have been different if somewhere in your response you had something relating to the question asked but seeing that there wasn't, my outlook on your response remains unchanged.

The intent of my comment was not "Buy a Skyline you poser". Apologies if it came across that way. It was intended to mean if you like your Honda, then don't try to turn it into something that looks like a different manufacturers car. Just seems a bit pointless to me :2cents: . By all means put a different kit on it and personalise it. There's heaps you can do to make it look good.

On a different note, if you want to do the 'Skyline look' then you will find the original xenon R34 headlights are quite expensive. I believe around US$2000 each. There may be cheaper after market ones. If you do find some, let me know.

btw...do you have a link to the photo of the car you are describing?

Yeah, I do. For some reason my sig won't stay up so whatever is up with that. Anyway here's the link: http://community.webshots.com/photo/201508535/201508535bWvHoF
I'm just going for that Skyline front look. And if the case is I haveto pay $2000/light then I am going to haveto think of something else. I'm not sure yet, maybe after I put the body kit on I'll be happy with the look. I am getting black housing headlights, maybe doing it myself, so that should add to the look. We'll just haveto see.

That looks very good for a conversion.. very good indeed, but I think if you sell your car, you may be able to find a skyline for a very similar price.

That accord-skyline conversion looks preety sweet.
let us know when you get those headlights.

posted by  slvracurarsx03

Very different look!

The lights are not the same as mine, so I'm guessing they are series I R34 lights or maybe from a sedan.

Hi I also am trying to mod my accord to look like a skyline but my problem is finding the rear lights and front lights. I believe that the fenders were also modified because there is no skyline conversion kits, but I was looking around and found the very same blue accord I also found another accord that the front was moded, having the R-34 front light the most I could do for you is give you his email address(hekstar@gmail.com) so you could ask him how to do that task. I already sent him an email, so you should do the same. also please help me find the lights. I hope it works out for you. :thumbs:

Where a bunch of skylines are and are they able to be registered in U.S. for on road use or just off road?

Check this out. The hottest thread going is one that gets updated every 27 months. This forum is awesome.

Should the "moderators" still stick with their lie that the place is dead because of me and Twhat, even though our combined posts over the last year are probably less than 50, or is it time for them to take some responsibility for the fact that they've ruined this place with their ignorance, arrogance and hunger for power?

Sorry for the run on sentence. Have a nice day.

P.S. Just for some excitememt, here is a pic of my newest toy, a Norinco (Chinese) 84S, .223 caliber, Avtomat Kalashnikova style carbine. No, this one isn't mine but it is currently available for sale.

I don't necessarily have a problem with you, you have a "hard edge" that anyone with half a brain could avoid. You're like that dad/uncle with a garage full of cool tools, and a wealth of knowledge and a son/nephew that has interest, but cannot be responsible enough to earn some "quality" time with the tools or absorb some knowledge.

You ever watch the movie, "Gran Torino"? A variation of the Clint Eastwood character.

I mean this as a compliment and hope it's taken as such.

"Twhat" on the other hand will continue to be removed from this forum the moment I find him back.

I don't know I've ever mentioned or alluded to you or Twhat being the cause of this forum being slow.

You haven't. The rent-a-cop and the military reject have. Including this post, I've posted 14 times in the last 12 months, yet they still pretend that the dwindling membership and post counts are somehow my fault.

They aren't.

The fault lies substantially with two inept moderators, one moderator who is apparently absent and an admin that is completely uninvolved. That and an almost total dearth of automotive discussion, information or knowledge.

And whether or not you like or understand Twhat, you have to admit at least he can be entertaining. And he does know something about cars unlike the two above mentioned moderators. He does bring something to the table.

P.S. Don't tell the little reject, but if he can't get "a (security) clearance PERIOD", he's undeployable. If he's unable to deploy, he can't be in the Army. It's all a smoke screen. My guess is he got to MEPS and is either too fat or too stupid to enlist... Probably both. But I can't prove either of those so I digress.

P.P.S. So how do you like my new (to me) Norinco? It's a pre-ban gun with a 16.25" barrel. I might even spend the $250 to buy the stamp so it's legal and then mod it to fire full auto. Bitchin'!

There are a few others that have lots of knowledge (or at least seem to) on cars and mechanics, none of which have the same "Twhat" attitude. I believe you gave him the nickname because of his "twatness", didn't you?. He is argumentative (to say the least) having been highly disrespectful to others and me. He's been given at least 3 chances to be "normal" and so far he's not able. I simply will not allow him back just to do it all over again...at least as long as I have the ability to keep him away. He is one person. Your presence and expertise is more than enough to liven this place up...given you realize most people are idiots and those idiots pretend to have half a brain.

It seems pretty interesting, but I can't appreciate the "fun" in owning such a weapon living in an area that one cannot just go out and shoot it on semi, let alone on full-auto... :)
