Hi Guys,

Not been on here for a long time and didn't know there was a 3g section now. All of my build is over on a thread on CRX-UK but I can copy it over to here if anyone is interested?

Anyhoo, here's my 1987 Civic GT which i've owned for 11 years and only actually had it on the road for 6 months of that time when I first bought it. Since then its been stripped, repainted, partly rebuilt, stripped again, welded, painted again and basically gone a bit mad with......

Its currently making 220whp @ 5.5psi due to it having an issue with the boost control on the s300 last time it was being tuned. This has been resolved now so its ready to go back on the RR to have things turned up to 12psi and see how mad it gets.

I'm still tinkering with settings and have some more parts on the way and plans for aero mods so i'll keep this thread updated from now on :top:

Here's some recent pics and a spec list:

Its been a while since I last updated this.

I've basically just been using the GT as often as I can and putting as many miles on it as possible. Its had a few small teething issues mainly relating to brakes but I seem to have solved all of those now and the last 150 miles or so have been trouble free including 80 miles on track :D

Its new got 700 miles under its belt and its basically time to get the boost turned up and fit the traction bar i've got in the shed. Then i plan on tidying a few things up over winter including coming up with a way of boxing in my fuel cell or fit some form of non puncture fuel cell in its place as it was one of the things I got bollocked for by the head marshal at Anglesey Circuit :oops:

Here's a few pics from the trackday:

And then on thursday night I met up with a lad who'd tracked me down through Facebook after spotting me driving back from football one evening. His name was James Russel and he runs a club called Civic Scene and was down on holiday. He said he wanted to shoot the car and as I've only ever taken pics of it on my phone I thought why the hell not!

James told me from the start that he wasn't a pro and a lot of what he did was trial by error but I couldn't be happier with the results. Will hopefully get to meet up with him again soon as he'd like to do a video shoot of the GT too.

Hope you like em:

Had a photoshoot for a mag feature the other day so I tidied the rocker cover up. I decided to shave the lettering off for the older school look and painted it satin black. It came out ok but I was a little rushed doing it so at some point it'll come off again and be re-painted. I also installed a power point which is uber handy for phone charging, laptop power etc :)

Something i've had lying around for a bit but hadn't fitted was a traction bar from Cheddas Auto. I hadn't fitted it as it clashed ever so slightly with my downpipe so i set about modifying the bar to fit and finally got it on the car. Can't wait for my next trackday to see how well it works.

This pic was taken shortly after i'd bought the car back in 2005. Its come a long way since then :D
