mate pictures don't do it any justice! Ill get mine up later, and we'll sort the engine out too
That looks awsome B)
nice colour, definitely different, but in a good way... B)
Does look better in fess pics
i like that! i hope i get to see this at bristol!
i spy wet flatting fuice in those last pics!! paint finish looks pretty good too! bargain for £120!!
Thank guys for all your kind words Makes all the hard work worth it [especially in this weather]when i hear things like that Its been a long learning curve for me this car and it has been built on a real budget but I've just tried to get round to doing every aspect of the car if you know what i mean, like motor swap, get it handling, paint/ rust repair lol. In all honesty the paint still needs work but this is just to get her through the winter really, it will be staying this colour tho as i have loads of the paint left I love that it still stinks of paint inside the car no need for airfreshners ! Originally i was going for an OEM+ build but after I found the shell wasnt rust free and was in dyer need of welding I just though fuck it im guna have some fun with it, if it was immaculate the project would have taken a different look..but i can appreciate that garish purple isnt to everyones taste lol
On a down note.... my head gasket has failed..well early signs..white smoke..oil cap creamed so i have between now and saturday evening to drop a B16a2 which im part ex'ing with my legendary mates huw and sian off here soo hopefully il be there at briz.. i dare say il miss the 10 horses the b16a has to give ontop but i need to get this thing rolling again..
Hopefully il finish getting the exterior built up this week, side strips and splitter etc as its looking a bit feminine at the moment without its agressive bolt ons..
Thanks for reading guys mor updates to come!!
If I buy the paint do you want to work some magic with your painter so I can get a damn good offer like you did
I absolutely love the colour.
Always wanted to see a nice purple Civic.
What's the exact colour name if it has one?
I'd personally like something a bit darker and deeper for myself =]
Ahh man that looks sweet !! well worth the work and the wait i take it
can't wait to see it in the flesh dude, feel free to give me a bell if you want a hand with the engine.
loving it tom !
Like this, bit different from the norm.
Personally think the wheels would look far better in anthracite though, think it would suit the purple much better!
Look really good black rub strips and sir lip to break it all up would make this perfect IMO
I heard about this from Tom, looks the nuts man, had to pop online for 2 mins just to take a look, it's 1:17am so i'ma shoot.
but yeh, looks bloody wicked, almost like a proper ribena berry/D2 purple kinda colour going by the pics with a high gloss pastel feel to it.
diggin' it.... think Clive will be jealous
looks really good mate, im sure my mum had a Civic coup back in the day that was this colour !
bring on bristol dude!! can't wait to see your EG too man!
Cheers bud, just needs a dirty stinkin d in there now lol im stayin B for good maj
Im not sure on that dude, mabey beige..they need freshening up in champ white, thanks dude
Cheers dude much appreciated! The strips will be going on ASAP
Haha i appreciate the dedication man! im glad you approve it was in primer for wayyyy to long! , going a bit US on this now, some ssr wheels will be next, you guna come to brizzle??
Cheers for the kind words bud Hopefully picking up a new l.ip for it tonight, along with some other goodies.. i think my HG is ok now too
i can't make brizzle unfortunately, my band is playing Bristol o2 Academy supporting Sonic Boom Six the same night, bit of a bummer but not at a huge loss
Really wanted to see the car/colour in person, but I'm sure there will be tales and many pics to route through
I'm selling the Apexi if you wanted it back ??
i think u have balls to go for a colour like this! turns out it looks awsome tho!
The colour is different but looks brilliant. An OEM lip and your on to a winner!
That colour is awesome mate! Love it!
thats lush man
