    My Daily Grind..../ Project Booooost!!

    Hi guys, as some of you know already im building a coupe up on here at the moment but I've been without wheels for so long i decided to buy another Civic. After my old lsi was stolen just over a year ago i had always missed it and wanted another EG. Luckily enough this one came up about a week ago on here off spees which i bought for a bargain price :Smile:

    who the hell did that paint job? nice lines on that badboy. (like i could do better)

    looks cool, speaking as a previous ford owner that rust looks like nothing. Can you weld?
