    I have owned my Civic for about a year and a half now and so I should really start a build thread on here. After having a 106 for my first year and two of my closest mates had hondas I knew what I was going to get next. I was really fussy about what I was going to get, I originally wanted an EM1 but the insurance was ridiculous, so I decided I was going to get an EK, I was looking for either a yellow or a blue one, found a few but they always turned out to be sold or a waste of time, after 2 months of searching with a friend, I came across what I thought to be the car I wanted but this too got sold before I had a chance of going to look. Two weeks later I was about to give up when I saw an EK I wanted and decided to go look at it. My mate and I decided to get up really early, have breakfast at McDonalds and ring the seller, we then drove the 87 mile trip in my mates MB6, down to Huddersfeld to look at this car, I ended up paying the deposit and returning the next day to pay the man and relieve him of one Civic. After dropping it at a garage to store for two months I went home and after seeing the advert to the car I wanted two weeks earlier, found out it was the same car, buzzing! Found out a few weeks after insuring her she was infact in limited edition Dark Amethyst Pearl, loved the colour!

    Lowered aparently 60 mm on springs, unkown make
    Sat on some 16" Wolfrace Asia-Tec alloys
    Unknown make backbox
    Unknown make manifold and decat
    Chavtastic, I think ebay chip instead of intake temperature sensor
    6x9's in the front door
    Purple rear tints

    I then set about with some parts that I liked

    Less from me and more from my Civic...

    The only picture from the advert:

    Pictures from the first shoot with her, the first night she was insured:

    C&C welcome

    • s/s exhaust system including a decat and a spoon n1
    • Crystal clear side indicators
    • Black Sabelt 4 point racing harness
    • Add miscelaneous stickers
    • Sold the 16 inch alloys in previous pictures and put on the OEM 14 inch, painted black
    • Add Team Heko wind deflectors
    • Front jap plate

    Been a while since i updated,i completely forgot about my build thread :/

    I decided that whoever put 6x9's in my doors was an idiot and i was going to rewire them to the back, so i needed new doorcards, luckily NeilVtec was breaking his EK4 so i got a deal on his doorcards and rear interior plastics, i also managed to source a set of recaros so i planned my trip to get my new seats and interior and after the 500 mile trip i was finally home with my new pieces.

    My new parts:

    RecaroandInteriorTrip.

    I then had to source either some DC2 or EK9 rails, i then managed to get some seat rails of J700CK off of EK9.org, when they arrived a friend helped me modify them to fit the seats and bolted them into the Civic.

    Quickpicofrecaroin.

    Recaros.

    New doorcards and rear plastics needed to be put in so a rewiring sesh was to be done:

    Speakerre-wiring5.

    Speakerre-wiring4.

    Speakerre-wiring3.

    Speakerre-wiring2.

    Speakerre-wiring1.

    Marc from the local Honda community also powdercoated my camcover, i know he is on this forum but i do not know his username

    Coversplat.

    The car was also put into the bodyshop to freshen her up, as well as the new front bumper i managed to get ahold of a jordan rear bumper and lip and a genuine Type-R grill.

    The car went in and i got the door mirrors, door handles, sidestrips and skirts colour matched, i got the wiper removed and welded up and desicided to get rid of the 'H' badge but kept the recess. After a bit of talking the aerial was also removed and welded up, i was in two minds about doing this but i went for it and i have to say i think it looks better!

    Are the pictures weird or is it the paint finish that is weird?


    Surprised I am that you didn't blank off the two holes on the front bumper left from the removal of the UK front number plate holder and would have been as good a time as any to throw into the mix a nice front lip!
     
  16. MatD Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    They were meant to be but they wernt, car suspension has settled more now so it sits lower and a want a spoon lip for it but i think it'l just catch...

    Decided to get rid of the rear drums and convert to rear discs. I swapped the full rear trailing arms, whilst doing this conversion i decided to change all the brake lines and the clutch line to HEL braided ones, i went for a lime green finish. EBC green stuff pads were added to the front, the proportional valve was swapped over to one from an EK9 and Race brake fluid put into the system, i think RBF 600/660

    New parts:

    Greenstuffpads.

    HELBraidedBrakeandClutchkit.

    RearABSsensors.

    Newsetup2.

    Braidedclutchlineandproportionalvalve.

    Sat on the drive:

    Kasumionaxlestands1.

    It then started to rain:

    Kasumionaxlestands2.

    Old brake lines:

    Oldbrakelines.

    Before:

    Reardiscconversioncarup1.

    Drums coming off:

    Olddrumcomingoff2.

    Discs on:

    Rearpassengersideon1.

    After:

    Reardiscdriverssideon1.

    The front sorted:

    Braidedbrakelineandgreenstuffpads.

    Proportional valve switchover:

    Proportionalvalve.

    Oldclutchline.

    Braided clutch line:

    Braidedclutchline1.

    Back on her own feet:

    Wheelonback.

    Abouttodropitbackdown.

    Took the weekend to do, a few problems along the way but brakes felt much better after, seem to bite more and stopping distance has decreased
