Wow really amazing progress there! Made me very paranoid about rust on my car now though! Think I might get myself a mugen lip after seeing how nice it looks. It's nice to see the essentials being done alongside the goodies! You should be proud of your car. :)

So after a long 2-3 weeks the car is finally on the road it returned from the bodyshop with the engine bay refurbished to a good standard so I got loads of seam sealer in where the weak points are to make sure it doesnt rust again in certain places and then I waxoyl'd below the crash bar and behind where the wings usually go and filled the internal engine bay parts and struts with waxoyl to preserve the rust free environment after this I purchased a few extra additions such as my conversion harness for my P28 from htune , which arrived shortly after as well as my HEL braided clutch line to the slave cylinder as the old one was a bit knackered looking so thought I would brighten it up , The engine was fitted after all this work with the loom pulled through to the new harness and the ecu , after no time the car started up first time perfectly and ran as it should , some fabrication was required to fit the Integra Airbox but it sits well in the engine bay , the car has ran well and relatively problem free until today 02/07/2015 I got an EML up and Vtec has stopped engaging so I am in the middle of fixing this problem now hopefully will be an easy fix I hope , but for now I will share some more pics got the meister R's fitted today as well so hope to get the ride height adjusted properly soon too as they where a little lower than I anticipated lol

Always more in the right place kip ! , yeah everything's going well Andy brown is taking the car soon for a good detail than I am gonna focus on breaks , have wrecked a cv joint so far so need one of them lol and while am at it may as well stick a genuine boot on as I find motor factors ones to be of poor quality , but yeah vtec is engaging well , car is doing well not using coolant or oil for now , so am happy enough just need to really apply myself to the brakes need to upgrade as am getting fade a lot , Meisters are great best mod yet ! Had to higher them up as I put them in the way they came and it was slammed ! I couldn't drive with them like that so highered car onto the tyre all round , camber arms next buddyclub most likely !

So not alot been happening recently car is still running well , i recently purchased a set of ITR recaros for the car to bring up the interior a bit , and will be fitting my Nardi soon once i get a boss from driftworks , the car is running well not showing signs of serious oil consumption or water etc so all good there , not smokey at all on Idle anymore since i replaced the PCV valve , i am heading on holiday soon so all money is going on that and after i intend to come back and purchase my camber arms set up and then Purchase a Set of Tyres for the Rays , thinking about painting the Rays now back to a normal color due to the fact that i kinda liked the look of the car on the Em1 wheels that i have had to use to get me about , so unsure of what to do about that , then also thinking about having under the car re done again with dinitrol etc to maybe keep the car about during winter , unsure as of yet tho , here are some pics of the car and recaros , how it has looked recently with the wheels changed due to the toyos going down to the wire lol

Looks awesome dude, my bro's just bought an ej9 in lightning silver (though it's clearly more of a lightning grey!), he's ask giving me for ideas and this is a great target if he wanted to do things right! Shame his is an auto :(

Class, car looks spot on! Seats came up real well indeed, Amazing what some TLC can do to some red recaros eh?

I reckon you should get a proper import sized plate and stick it on to the bumper, That UK plate there will not be helping airflow to the radiator either.

Agreed, very poor choice of number plate position.
Seems all the VW kids are doing this too, seems like a bad idea to me.
