Okay, so it's been a bit quiet here for a while as I've been collecting bits and getting some spraying done.

So far I've added:
-Type-R front and rear lips
-Import sized plates
-JDM tilt bracket
-Rotas (thanks Ezza)
-had some colour coding done (needs to go back to be finished off)
-and a Tannabe backbox (Cheers Steve-o)

Pics aren't great as it's gone dark, but it hides the dirt well! Very Happy










Not sure about the black bases on the mirrors, opinions? Leave them black or code them red?
Door handles need to be done also, and need to ge tthe Type-r grille sprayed too.

It's been a quiet few months on the Civic front! I've been mega busy with all kinds of shit, and waiting for what seems like forever to get parts painted! Now the painting is finally done! Gave her a clean on the weekend and changed the parts over and here she is!







I took your comment Steve-o and had the chrome lip on the grille colour coded, and it looks good!
I tried tilting the spoiler, it looks a little straighter and more pointy, but how do you get the mad tilt on it?? If I put any more washers underneath it then the bolts don't go through the holes underneath and I can't get the cap-nuts on the ends...

I live in Coseley, by the Mcdonalds on the B'ham new road, just up Ivyhouse Lane. I work at Birmingham Midshires in Pendeford, so I go through Tetenhall/Codsall past the Claregate pub.

I'm gonna go and have a look at your tilt bracket now powelly, I spent about 20 getting one off Ebay!

Spoiler now has tiltage! Wink Will get pics on the weekend when I give her a good polish and wax!

I've seen a few Civics round here recently. There's a loud blue/purple EK with a white 'H' decal in the back window, drives up my road all the time. I was talking to him in Jan when I was blocking the road for 45 mins 'cause some c*nt in a white van wouldn't give way!
Seen another one today too, purple/blue and with white wheels.. Know any of them?
