Hallooo,
Never really had a build thread for any of my old civics so thought i'd start one, as this one is worthy of it haha.

Basically started off with an eg
Image
It was a Jdm vti with a d15b, and i loved it. But it was way too rusty and was verging on being unroad worthy, with it needing so much work. So i swapped it with some moolahs with a mate, for the following ej9 which was b swapped with quite an extensive spec list tbh.

Image
Image

To be honest ek's have always been my least favourite shape, and also i have this asphyxiation with weight, and ek's being the heaviest of the civic from the 90's it had to go. I also didnt really like the body work or styling. I just bought it cuz it had a b series haha.

Then on tuesday i picked up the latest. A some what of a minter GL, with under 80k one the clocks :). It definitely the best civic i've owned even though its the slowest and oldest, it puts more of a smile on my face than the other two ever did. Also i like the dash lay out alot haha.

And the dreaded rust, got away lightly to be honest


The first mod was a password JDM gearknob, i've had from all my other civics :) it feels so good.
Image excuse the shite picture. haha

I have a few other things in the pipeline like these 16 16 wheels i'm giving a quick refurb
Image
Image
Learnt the card trick off of Marc_vt when i saw a pic of him refurbin' some wheels. Works so much better than masking tape and takes half the time. Best use for pokemon cards i've ever come across.

Also i have a d16a9 i'm going to collect soon. It has had a head skim, 3 angle valve seats and a mild port :). With a dyno proven 149bhp and 125ftlbs of torque.
Image

Then when money allows i will pick up all suporting parts like tank, lines, dash loom etc etc.

Thats all for now folks enjoy :)

Cheer peeps. Im really looking forward to gettin the engine in, and im trying to resist spending next months wages on supporting parts and mods for the engine, rather than getting the sills re done and getting a coat for winter haha.

And yeah marc i had to sell them with my old car :(. Still have the one advan though ;) May use it as a show piece or something.

Thanks peeps:). I know might get the right ones next month. Bit strange as the 16 16 nuts must be really short. The worst thing about it is i didn't prep or paint the centre of the wheels as well as i thought they'd be covered up :(.

they are, but some are short and open ended, some are long and have closed ends

although centre caps should fit over both :?

find a Rover scrappers, they usually throw the short nuts in the car after they've taken the wheels off.
