It's been a long time since I last bothered to make a build thread or update my builds prior to this to let anyone know what happened to them. For those of you who have been around the site for a while you might remember I first joined the site back when I had my first Civic. It was only a 1.4 EJ9 in Vogue Silver Metallic but I was young and I loved it. I bought it as a standard car minus some awful alloys and set about making it my own, I was just happy to have a base to work with and my first Honda. Fast forward two years and after paying stupid amounts of money on insurance I could finally use the money I would of been paying for that to put towards my next car. Enter Honda number two, this time in the form of a Civic Jordan. As you can imagine I was still only about 21 at the time, working full time and living at home with lots of ideas in my head. Finally something with VTEC, B16a2 but I was over the moon, I saw past the typical rust next to the 'Jordan' logos I kept this for around a year, maybe just over? Again I spent lots of money of buying all sorts of parts and deciding I wanted a different set of wheels or a new splitter every other month, it went up for sale and the first person to view it took it away. Number three, enter Honda fan boy time, 96 spec JDM DC2. Bought this one off a very close friend of mine, ill keep it short I ended up rebuilding the whole engine, new gearbox and lots of expensive interior and exterior parts. No expense spared, Recaro Pole Positions, Mugen Gen 1 wing etc, Mugen steering wheel, Te37's etc. I loved that car but I couldnt get my head or heart past the fact I want to go K20 but if im going to do it I wouldnt be tearing apart a clean DC2 even though it wasn't standard everything id done could be easily put back to standard if need be. I bit the bullet and sold it to another close friend of mine and set about looking for another car. Stumbled across a Civic Jordan shell someone semi local was planning to scrap, I took the drive up and put a deposit on it. knowing full well it needed work on the arches etc the plan was to build something over time myself. Had it a fair few months and after gathering parts for the swap and doing bits to the shell here and there, then hit an issue with both inner sills being completely rotten, it was alot more work than I had first anticipated and decided to get rid. I kept the k swap parts and while gathering the remaining parts I was again looking for another Civic, that brings me to this one. Full circle and a few cars later I picked up a bargain, another VSM EJ9. Dirt cheap, body wasn't the best with a few dings here and there and a weird hand print mark in one quarter, it was clean rust wise just the smallest parts of surface here and there.. WINNER. I can't for the life of me remember what I did first now so ill upload as I find pictures and give an overview or list of what it is you're looking at. Also not uploaded anything since Photobucket threw their toys out the pram so im having to dig photos out and upload them to another host before I share them on here. First off I managed to get my hands on my old bonnet I had on my first Jordan. The next person to own it had a pin fail and smash their windscreen and of course the bonnet took a hit too but its worth repairing when you know the cost Js Racing racing carbon bonnet.. DC2 subframe I went to pick up when I had my old Integra 70mm ported RBC with adaptor plate and Skunk2 70mm TB K20a2 DC5 Cams Supertech valve springs/titanium retainers and keepers 45 degree VTC cam gear Hybrid Racing Tensioner Tractuff sump baffle New OEM headgasket, valve stem seals, thermostat, head skim ARP headbolts and new chain fitted. And how it looks with my new rocker cover and RBC fitted EP3 box with OEM DC5 LSD Volk Style wheels, I know I know but I was using the money to concentrate on making sure the car had the best parts engine and swap wise. These were cheap and will do me for now, I will be back on something cool and genuine as soon as possible! Set about trying to make the bonnet look a bit more presentable, dont have all the photos to hand so these will have to do. Not perfect by any means but its not a show car..
