Hi Guys after a few year of being away from the scene i'm back with a new car. I really wanted another ef9 but just can't afford one at this point so i opted for the cheaper route.

I found myself a little 1.4 GL for £300 so we set off for a 400 mile round trip to fetch it , the car had no mot so we had to trailer it home. When i turned up the car wasn't in the condition i was told it was in the guy said it had no rust which it has and it has a few dents in and a hole in the backbox and its leaking oil but for £300 what did i really expect?

My plans are to buy a b18c4 engine and drop that in along with a lot more but i wanna keep that on the hush for now and show you the photos of my progress instead :)

Enjoy

Little update from today i put up a wanted post on a Facebook page saying i needed some 4g civic swap parts and a few people left some comments saying they had what i needed which i was surprised at because the parts are pretty rare nowadays but anyways a lad said he had some VT hubs front and back with 282 discs and calipers upfront and 262 discs and calipers at the rear and the rear also come with energy bushes :) i got a bargain on them as well i have a few other parts i still need to get but i have a few things to sort out before then.



Enjoy

Bit of an update for you. I haven't even touched the car since I've had it i haven't had the time plus I'm waiting until the 1st week in December when the car gets it's new home ( Garage) so it can be stored and worked on over the winter. But anyways i made a trip to Reading to pick up some B Series swap mounts for the ec9 and i needed the rear L bracket and the other leg bracket still a lot more updates to come but will be slow until december but keep checking back :)

Sorry it's been so long but hope everyone had a nice christmas!!



Update Time *************



Finally my car is in my garage in the dry got it in there at 10.30 this morning so now it's there i can get cracking. Today i started stripping the interior got most the rear out and the roof lining just need the front seats out and door cards then time for the dash to come out ready for it's new loom. I will get rid of the sound deadening and clean the interior up i only took a few photos as i don't have working lights in there at the minute. And the end of the month i'm going to rip the engine out and get the bay ready for the new engine i don't want this to be a long winded project where i clean every bolt and polish everything i just want the running gear in and the body work will come afterwards. Made good progress being as though it's only the first day but i enjoyed working on my car getting back into it :)



I am also going to start a video blog so bare with me as i edit it :)

So today i was up early again wanted to get a few bits done but ran into a few complications. I couldn't remove the rear bumper as the old screw bolts underneath were solid with rust and had rounded heads so i just left it till i can use my power tools to get them off.

So i carried on with the interior got the carpet out and some more of the plastics started to look a lot better now and i can see some real progress when i pulled it out the garage just looked so much better and looks like its gunna be a weapon can't wait to get this rest sorted.
