Heres my old hawaii, had it for about a year and luckily i didnt do any mods on it. I had shit tyres, probably illegal and it was raining so i went right into the bak of sum1. obviously it was a bit my fault but i blame the weather lol



Then after that disaster i knew i wanted another 6th gen civic so i saved up 4 a while then bought this. i paid 1500 for it with 58000 miles on the clock. it was in amazing condition but the main reason i wanted it was because it was a 1.5 lol not a 1.4 very big improvement, naat!!

here she is as i bought her, bit of a shyte pic!



first thing i did was get red honda badges, take the 1.5ils off the back and a new type r front lip.





next i bought a genuine type r grill, and a twin pipe back box off ebay. i went for the ep3 type r look.





an here they are on





grill was ded easy only took 10 mins. I think it looks good with the lip and bumpstrips. thinking of colour coding something but dno wat yet.

My springs are getting fitted this sunday i will post some pics as soon as their done. Any one got any experience with koni sport springs??



Today i also recieved my new front tyres gonna get them fitted tomorrow, get the springs done on sunday and then get an alignment on monday.The toyo proxes had good reviews on this site and they wer cheap so decided 2 go 4 em!



fitted my springs on sunday at a freinds/mecanics house. only took a cuple of hours. I wasnt hoping for a massive drop because i am a delivery driver part time, just want a subtle drop! heres the pics, tell me what you think






i did an oil change with my dad, replaced the old oil filter which was a bit of a nightmare to get off. but the crow bar soon changed that!

then i replaced the gear knob gaitor with an ek9 style 1. pretty easy job and looks sweet!! just need a new gear knob.



Then i painted the calipers gold, just to contrast the wheels. suppose any colour is better than shitty blacky rusty dirty kind of colour lol




gave the wheels a good clean while they where off!


Then i decided to type r the headlights so i set about taking the front bumper off


i took the lights off, the car then put them in the ovan to melt the silicon seal the after a cuple of mins i pulled the different sections apart



Then i masked the certain ares off and primed them with halfords grey.


while i was waitin for the paint to dry i took the plastic number plate surround thingy off, then mounted the plate back on. luks alot sleaker and lightweight lol



o yer i also d-badged the rear. just luks alot smoother and stealthy

took a few photos today after i cleanerd my car yesterday. it had rained last night so not as shiny lukin as i wud of hoped











At the moment i have been colourcoding the bumpstrips, i was gonna just fill the bumpers but i thought i may aswel colour code then if they look shit i can get on with filling them in.

alot of the rubber had layers coming off and stone chips so i chuked a bit of filler in them and gave them a smooth.

heres the before pic



heres the otherside with all the stone chips, and a bit of sanding i started.




then i put way too much filler on. which meant i had to sand it down alot more but it came out really smooth and i was happy for it to be primered





The lighting was a bit shit in the garage so the colour may not look right but im sure it will be


now im just adding a few more coats of clear laquer and then il show sum pics of them bak on. then i need to do the other 6 pieces frown


im well chuffed with how they turned out but i might do an extra layer of laquer as it luks a tiny bit dull.




i cleaned up my d16z6 inlet mani. just gave it a scrub and a smooth sanding down to bring out the shine.





also gave the little bracket a spray



just ordered a new gasket for the inlet mani then i will fit it hopefully later on in the week.

Then i fitted my exhaust mani. I found that the bolts connecting the mani were badly rusted along with some of the exhaust. They where impossible to take off so i just cut them off and replaced them with new ones. This will also help me later on when replacing my exhaust in the future.





Also gave this a sanding to bring bak the shine and remove the rust

today i got the old inlet mani off and swapped it over with the d16z6 one



ok the only problem was that my mecanic friend ordered a new gasket but it was for an 1850cc civic. so we had to fabricate a new one using special gasket card.



i still need to tidy up the injector wires and give the fuel rail a proper polish but thats pretty much it!

it did take quite a while to do but thats mainly due to the gasket, other issues where just locating which wires went where.

had a day of uni 2day, so thought id do the rocker cover. Iv done like a how-to for people that havent done it yet

so heres the roker cover all dirty



gave it a clean with some soapy water and then splodged on loads of nitro morse



Then cleaned all that off and gave it a light sand all over. Also polished up the honda logo and dabbed sum vaso on it, so the paint will come off l8er.
Also plugged some of the holes with tissue and masking tape

Then used a high temperature paint as a primer



After about three coats of primer i gave it a light sand with 1200 grit ready for paint.

Then i did four coats of paint and this is what im left with



Just need to wait for it to dry, remove the paint on the logo then il get sum pics of it bak on the car. dnno if i shud have done a clear coat of laquer....ahwel still luks ok i fink.

thought id take sum pics of the car after a clean and nearly all of the bumpstrips colour coded.







heres my gangsta gecko aswel lol



very small update, probably not even worth u looking at it!i did the jdm light conversion 2day, an il be ordering a tegiwa master cylinder brace and a password jdm gear knob for crhistmas. and thats it lol

(very bad picture)




iv changed the badge bak to standard and put my import plate on. i just need to get rid of the sticky stuff left over from the the previous plate.


finally got round to fitting my straight through exhaust system with decat. it sounds soo much nicer, has a subtle purr to it and sounds really sporty in vtec, im soo pleased. we had to weld a few areas to get the pipe to fit with the new decat but everything is fitted now.

old stock exhaust


new exhaust being bodged



i also put my tegiwa mc brake stopper on. i just couldnt wait till christmas, i hate having parts lying round my room waiting to go on my car. so that on and braking seems a bit sharper.

unfortunately i had a little bump the other week on the ice. skidded into a wall but luckily the damage wasnt too bad, most of it was on the numberplate.
soon the bumper was fixed and also replaced the number plate. And added a tilt bracket from Tegiwa

i also bought some grommits from halfors too fill in the holes, then sprayed them up.
my new camera arrived aswel so heres som shots, not the best because im still learnin the ropes

o yer and i sprayed these up coz they where manky!



should freshen the bay up abit more

Lookin very nice joe. I think an EK9 rear wing would complement it very well. Glad to see you did the head light colour code job well (i've known a few people to mess that one up).

Yer they are, I ended up going JDM stupid and payed 350 for a genuine black one. Never again lol. I think if I was to ever buy a civic again it would have to be the ek9 and not an ek tarted up to the standard of typeR ! search my user name and civic for ideas on civic's. I've had a fw and dne topics on themm all here!
