Hello guys.

Before posting a speclist of the white GL, first some more information.

First car I've had was a Corolla E12 from 2006. Bought it in 2008, when I just had my driver's license.
Through the years I've modified it, it looked like this:
Image
Image

Last year I've decided to get the corolla back to original setup, because of private reasons.

That same time I've bought myself a red civic ED7, with 16i16 engine. Addicting machine! :twisted:
Image
Image

But after inspecting the red ED7 from a little bit closer, it was clear that is was rottening all over. The lifting points at the rear were completely gone, I pushed right into the interior with 1 finger. Also the engine was leaking oil, the chassis began to crack around the front suspension, etc etc. So I started looking for a spare parts civic.
After some weeks I've found a 1.4 GL automatic, which didn't drove for about 2 years. I went for a look, and it was just amazing how good it's condition was. So I decided to buy it, and just sell the ED7 instead. It was just too much work.

On the way home

Did some maintenance on the car myself. New oil + filter, spark plugs, airfilter, etc. while preparing it for the Belgian MOT.
Also switched useful parts with the red ED7, as I was selling it anyway. KW V1 coilovers, amber corners, red refection garnish between the taillights, mudflaps, radio, etc. And installed a VR6 front lip.

The KW coilovers
Image

Meanwhile I've bought a universal spoon replica muffler
Image

Also a 4-2-1 header
Image


Even before it was checked for MOT, I bought some alloys and rubber. Front: 15x7,5 ET26 with 165/50 tires. Rear: 15x8,5 ET13 with 185/45 tires
Image
Image
Image

Had the coilovers, rear camber kit and wheels mounted for a local car meet, with this result
Image
Image

Wooden steering wheel and a retro fan on the dash
Image

Roof bars on
Image

Header installed
Image

Got a rare armrest in very good condition
Image

Found a US rear bumper
Image

At this moment the civic is back in winter mode. On original suspension, with winter wheels.
Image

Got another size of license plate to fit the US rear bumper (is at the bodyshop now)
Image

Bought pre-facelift taillights, soldered the wiring to fit the current wiring (it's different though, 3 bulbs instead of 4), kitted them completely waterproof and tinted the reverse light
Image

Some weeks ago I've cut an acrylic sheet into this shape, to make a wind fairing
Image
Image

Made some brackets
Image
Image

Painted the inside of the acrylic sheet and the brackets
Image
Image

Result
Image
Image

And last week I've found an extra front bumper, also to be repainted together with the US rear bumper, in matte black.
Image

And lifted the rear roof spoiler a little
Image


At this moment I'm waiting for the spoon replica muffler to be welded and the new repainted bumpers. When they are all finished, the civic can go back to summer mode.

So, that's it for now. I'm sorry for those whose computer has been freezing when loading all these pictures :P
Tips and comments are welcome ofcourse!

Grtz

Thanks guys! :)

Installed some reflectors on both sides of the front bumper today.
They are a little bit brighter at night, but I like it! 8)

Not feeling the stretched tyres on the staggered wheels, apart from that, very nice!

Thanks :)

I like big lips (on wheels :P ) and low, so stretched tyres are the perfect solution to combine them :D

Re-wired the indicators and citylights so the indicators also light up, as like US runninglights.
