right guys not a great amount of detail, loads of pics missing from parts brought and fitted but it'll get better with time :)

copied from civicjordan.co.uk

hello guys,

i've been on here a while most of you know me, so i thought its time i started a build thread of some sort!!

only problem i have i haven't been taking that many photos of all the stuff iv'e been doing! but hey ho.

i'll apologise for the quality of the photos in advance :(

this is the car when i first got it! had a list of problems as long as my arm, but i got it fairly cheap so i couldn't really say no,

1999 'T' plate
63,000 miles

B18c-r ( the main reason why i brought the car, good base to start with) ;)
P73 JDM ECU
Carbon intake
SRS exhuast
ATR recaros
ITR rear seats
Koni springs and shocks
Powder coated standard wheels

i'll update spec list as i go through.









they are the only photo's i took of the car when i got it as i wasn't happy with all its niggles!!!

first thing i did when i got home was wash and clean the interior as it was a state, then change all the wheel bearings :( what a ball ache of a job!!



next on the cards was get rid of the RSR twin loop, it sounded awful and was blowing from the centre somewhere!
got hold of a buddyclub Pro Spec of keith ;) took it to work and gave all the welds a once over to make sure no cracks appear, then gave it a polish and stuck it on!



got hold of one of my mates In the USAF as i was after a few parts ;) couple of weeks later this arrived





along with a:

blox 2.5" decat
Accel 8mm ignition leads
New OEM DC2 oil cap

decided that a hamerite painted rocker cover was cutting it for me so i started to refurb mine back to the red wrinkle finish it should have :)

cleaned the engine bay, painted the block and various parts, got rid of needless brackets and tidied the bay :)

rocker cover finished and manifold, decat and leads on :))







loads and loads more to come, im just been lazy and getting bored of typing .....TBC

TBC ................... :)

got bored with the OEM lip, so decided on mugen rep lip, original plans was to get the lip colour coded but after a test fit i loved the colour contrast :) so its staying black :wink:

ive got to say the fitment of the lip is as good as OEM, i was amazed :D





browsing Ebay when your bored isn't good for your bank balance, i ended up buying a Seibon Carbon EK9 spoiler, oh well :mrgreen:




wheels were my main headache since i got the car :nono:

i didn't want to follow the common trend of wheels on civics, although they are all very nice and tempting!!

originally i wanted either

Enkei RPF 1's
Enkei 2 Pc splits
Advan RG's

after a lot of searching and people letting me down, i got a phone call from one of my mates where i used to live, long story short he's breaking his TEG and wanted to know if i wanted his Mugen RNR's????? YES PLEASE

hardly ever seen RNR's kicking around so i didn't know how it was going to look when it was all done?????

9 hour drive later down to thetford, norfolk i picked them up :D

they have been sat on his TEG for 3 1/2 years so are in very bad condition, not an issue for me as my best friend works in a finishing shop :D







dont know what the last pic is?? meh :)


1 hour or so later all the wheels were shot blasted and looking like this .....








then the dilema started............ which colour :hmm:

Black
White
Silver








guess what colour i chose :lol:


i couldn't wait to get the wheels on the car, needed 4 new tyres quickly, so ended up getting 4 x TOYO T1r to get me by! took the wheels and tyres down to ladybank tyres quite a while later :roll: they were ready to go on :D

heres the finished product along with a set of D1 Spec open ended nuts.







I love it :D couldn't have wished them to turn out any better and suit the car aswell as they do :mrgreen:

TBC........................ tomorrow as my fingers hurt :roll: watch this space :nice:

Miester R's and D2 LCA fitted



postman gave me a few more parcels :) nice postaman :thumbs:

pressed plates
tilt bracket
Datum 1 tow hook (cheers Jamesy)



Carbing lower tie bar freshly powder coated :)





then fitted





once the coilovers and LCA's were on i felt like i was neglecting the bushes, so a week or so later this arrived ( obviously not a full kit still waiting on some others)



after i while of researching which intake i'd like next, i came to the conclusion that an airbox is the way to go, didn't really fancy spending £250 + on a mugen airbox, so the next best thing performance wise ....... OEM DC2 Airbox.

had a search round and after a week or two i managed to find one, it came with a Hamp replacement filter aswell



just needs a good clean and i need to source a cold feed or i might make one at work in the composite bay ;) not on the car yet!
