PostSubject: eca's Matador Red Ek4 VTi   Sun 07 Feb 2010, 7:52 am

Coulda sworn I made a build-up thread on here before....Hmmm...

Nevermind.

Honda Civic Matador Red EK4 VTi. Immaculate condition. Low mileage.

Here it is (from the advert):




And here it is at its new home all clean and tingggg (DIY spoiler tilted too lol)


Fitted an EK9 style front grill for starters:



Then an "Ebay" Gearknob:


And the other major addition ;-)


Progress has been slow and steady due to me being made redundant, but now I'm back earning (next couple weeks anyway) I can get cracking.

But here's what I did in the mean time.







Stainless exhaust system with TEGIWA Imports decat:




The catalyst which got me motivated to fit it, broked backbox :-(




Fitted:





Some thingys I bought which are waiting to be fitted :-D MeisterR Zeta-S coilovers and Cyberspeed/MeisterR LCAs.




Couple of pics from the 06/02/2010 meet in Trafford Centre, Manchester.





Also, managed to negotiate a deal for 4 Rota Slipstreams (15" in White) with 4 Yokohoma Parada Spec IIs for 300. Knocked 70 off the asking price. I know Rotas are not to everyones taste, but I like them. But while I was arranging that deal, I was tempted to spray my VTi wheels ready for next winter...So a friend did some Photoshopping for me...

Gunmetal Grey (lowered too much I know lol)


Flat Black


My request (my favourite, althought I'd probably go a shade less...)


And a taster for what's to come hopefully :-)


Sorry about the huge post...Like I said, I was sure I had a buildup thread on here already...Obviously not...

Cheers for reading :-)

Got some more plans, which I'll reveal in due time!

Righty ho. Not been on the forum for a while, but thought I'd come back with an update!

First off, changed my front plate. Had it sitting around for ages. Not the import size but it'll do for now. Will eventually get the import size.




Accessorised the engine bay (was done a couple weeks BEFORE the momumental defeat against Chelsea lol):


Then (I'm not gonna do into the difficulties and the time frame of this job), EVENTUALLY, we fitted my coilovers and LCAs:









Poor girl had to put up with it for couple hours, but it's either that or a long walk home lol!


No real problems apart from one of my ARB droplinks was already buggered, and the other wouldn't come off. So we snapped the other one off and I ordered two more.

After I took the photos we raised the front end up. Wheels scrape against the arches a bit but I'll sort that out along with the droplinks tomorrow :-)

Yay! Finally done! Front and rear lips and smoothing bumpers next!

Cheers man it's my fave!

Think Ste put it thru some colour boost program.

Anyway, where the hell were you?? Ad text me asking whether it'd be worth coming down if you left a bit later and I said yes!
