To flat tow your 1993 Honda Accord Sedan you will need to start with a base plate kit like the part # 1526-1 that has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle and comes with removable arms so that when you aren't flat towing your vehicle you wouldn't have two arms hanging of the front of the vehicle.

In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar (not included with the base plates), safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground.

For lighting it sounds like you already have that covered with temporary lights like the # TL21RK.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest system to set up and use is the Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2019, that applies the vehicle brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles.

Most likely you will also need a high low adapter so that the tow bar will be level when you are flat towing. I attached a link to a page that has all of the ones we carry.

I have included a couple of helpful links to our articles on flat towing for you. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for more specific information on flat towing your vehicle.
