Travis McPeak is from Sprague, Washington, and his award winning 1995 Honda Accord is one that once you take a look at the craftsmanship and attention to detail, it reminds me of custom builds of years past. When clean and smooth ruled the car show circuit. More so these days Performance theme show cars rule the Import scene. And some builders have even taken the combination of the two styles and have built some very nice vehicles.
The first thing you will notice is the Black Widow 2 Body kit and Hood. The body kit was modified to give it a unique look. The door handles, trunk lid, bodyline, drip rails and emblems were all shaved. The gas door, mirrors, antenna, wiper cowl all got the shaved treatment. The door jams were shaved and smoothed also.
Once the Bodywork was all compete, the body received several coats of Electric Blue for the top color and Charger Silver on the bottom. This combo created a two-tone paint job with a charcoal pinstripe to separate the two colors. 1 piece projector headlights with clear taillights were the finishing touches to the exterior after paint.
The interior was all done in fiberglass with Blue and gray suede. The dash, door panels, console, rear deck and amp rack were all custom done in fiberglass. The subwoofer box and the inside of the trunk were also fiberglassed. A custom made steering wheel wrap in gray suede with a quick release hub replaced the stock unit. The headliner and floor are covered in gray suede with painted fiberglass inserts. Travis installed a set of Yonaka racing seats which were covered in gray and blue suede to fit the theme of the interior. For the finishing touches Travis installed Sparco pedals and shift knob, Cyberdyne and Chassis Tech digital gauges in the now custom dash. And Billet window switches in the custom console. The sound system is controlled by a JVC CD/DVD head unit with amps and speakers made by Niche. A pair of 7” monitors, one in the trunk and one in the custom console complete the in car entertainment.
The engine received some custom touches as well. Starting with a H22 motor, a T3/T4 turbo kit was installed. A tubular high performance manifold, Tial wastegate, Yonaka intercooler and an OBX oil pan found there place in the engine bay. A custom dual exhaust system was built. The engine and transmission were painted to match the exterior before a custom fiberglass engine bay cover was made.
The Honda Accord rides on air cylinders for suspension with a 5 gallon trunk and dual Viair 480 compressors. An Energy Suspension bushing kit was installed before a set of 20×7.5 Starr wheels with 225/30/20 tires were fitted to the cross drilled rotors.
Really nice built Honda’s are rare in the northwest and Honda Accords are even rarer to see at this level. Travis and his partner Chris Green of Lethal Customs did a very nice job and should be proud of a job well done.
