    Scuba steve's SSB Ej9 Updates

    Hello there all.

    Just thought i would start a progres blog. After i finshed my last project which was my 106 which i sorta miss but owell.

    I then set out looking for a Civic came across a ek4 sir which looked mint in all the photos i had seen but went to edinburgh to go have a look and was nothing like what i had been shown in photos :Frown:

    So after coming home and a good bit of time on the net found a really nice ej9. so set down to edinburgh again to this time be really impressed by what i saw so decided to take it.

    Here how it looked after i picked it up.





    Plans are get my old bucket seats in, luke harness's , EK9 lips, EK9 grill , Jap plates ,Coilover, Wheels, Upgrade the brakes, then next year engine work, still undecided what to do engine wise.

    Comments welcome

    My friend is part of a fourm and came across a nice set of wheels for me, chances are im going to take them and get them fitted after xmas as don't want to ruin them with all this crap weather coming our way.

    Things have been rather slow with this project.

    So yesterday and today had been looking at some new wheels and decided to order a set hopefully will be with my by tuesday this week :Smile:

    Also ordered another seat rail for my passanger bucket seat and another luke 4 point harness, seat rail and harness should be here later on next week. then more saving for coilovers :Grin:

    Decided to day to order my self some coilovers went for the bc racing as have heard a good few things about them.

    Only bad thing is going to take 2 weeks as on back order :Frown:

    But once they arrive will be getting buckets, rails, harnesses, wheels, and coilovers all fitted at once so will be a nice big change :Grin:

    New Wheels and tyres:

    Are those genuine Honda because if so they won't fit, unless i've missed something
  12. scuba steve Senior Member ★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆

    Sorry forgot to add there the Sprint SW96 wheels 4x100
  13. Porker New Member Getting Started

    They don't look genuine.

    Rota or Sprint copies?
  14. Bong Guest
