Hi guys.
Recently picked up my first ek.
It's the ek3 on 67k. Previous owner has had it re sprayed ford artic white why not Honda white I have no idea. I'm not sure but I think they also have put different bumpers and skirt on it? Can anyone confirm for me? So far loving the car got a long list of things to do so I'll probably be asking for lots of advise haha. Cheers

Welcome to the forum mate. Car looks good.

Is that sticker on the rear arch hiding the dreaded rust? :(

Looks like a decent base to start with!:nice:

Yeah sadly :( it's got a few patches on bottom of arches but nothing I'm too worried about. The better half does bodywork repair/spraying so most of it we can do ourselves. The interior is spotless haha it came with a set of lowering springs so they will be on soon.

That’s good then as it can be expensive for body work repair and spraying! What kind of springs?

I'm not sure but they looked like a set of coilovers minus the shocks as they had threaded collars with 30 to 55 on them I shall be putting a pic up as I wanted to make sure they were for the car rather than book it in and get a bill for something that can't be fitted haha

Ha ha yeah I’d post them up here first to make sure they are for the car and are worth putting on. If they are cheap after market ones they might not be worth putting on.

Welcome along mate, looks like front and rear type R 'style' lips. Also colour coded door handles, sideskirts, mirrors, door strips, bumper strips and rear number plate recess. Look forward to seeing some progress with this :nice:
