Welcome to the new Icetronix website and the new and improved Workshop Weekly Blog. 

This is the sight outside Icetronix around 3pm Saturday. Accords are getting some seriously well deserved attention at the moment. The white Accord wagon is Sales Manager Steves personal project. Its got a proper Euro-R engine and box, fully resprayed and has some Lexus IS220 wheels that really work well. I thought they looked a bit dull at first to be honest, but have really grown on me.

The white saloon is a a long time customer who is in getting a championship white respray and a supercharger fitted. Theres a really good contrast between the Pearl White paint on Stevens wagon and the the Championship White on the Supercharged Accord.

Next is Aidan the workshop managers blue Euro-R. He minds it like a baby. Its one of my favourite cars, rumour is going to sell it soon and if I had the money id snap it off him. 

The silver Euro-R is a sales car thats getting cleaned up for sale soon, so watch this space! 

We do so much for these Accords that they are the perfect for modifications. We do a full Mugen style kit, carbon rear spoilers, wheels, brake upgrades, suspension upgrades, manifolds, exhausts, cams etc.

They are going to be huge over the next 5 years as they come down a little in price. Its a shame that the new Accord never really took off like this model.

If 4 Accords isn't enough for you, two more joined the party. The black Accord was in fora Mugen front bumper and the grey estate at the far end is a good customer of ours who working away on transforming it. One of our sales cars, the red EP Sport sneaked into this photo and I was too lazy to go moving it.
Its a 1.4 car converted to 1.6 Sport VTEC, with a Mugen front and rear lip, Mugen Grill, Type-R plastic sideskirts and Type-R rear spoiler. Its also an original Milano Red car which is a brilliant colour.

This is a Jap EP3 that arrived for breaking. Pretty hard hit to the side, never seen a EP3 3-wheel quite that badly! Some very nice bits came with the car though, Meister coilovers, Anniversary Recaros and a few more bits and pieces. Hopefully the driver walked away, probably a bit shook no doubt

This big delivery of Skunk2 came in this week too, loads of goodies from one of the best Honda Tuning companies around.

And finally this was the scene at the end of the day. The last Accord standing. 
In the background is Stevens other project car, an EP with a B16 DOHC Vtec engine. We are looking at developing this conversion as an alternative to the K20 swap, with a lower price.
K-Swaps are great, but the price puts alot of people off, so this could be a huge seller in the he coming year.

I got a little time at lunch to snap a few more pictures of Aidans Euro-R Accord while it was nice and clean. Anyone want to loan me some money?
