PostSubject: Project "KEEPA" An EG5 Story.   Thu 11 Mar 2010, 9:46 pm

Hey guys been around for quite a while on 4guk Crxuk and civiclife but been waiting for the right car to kick things off.

So after selling every car ive ever owned within a couple of months (Out of work and good prices offered) I decided that the next car i brought would be for keeps. Heres some of my Investments?





There were more but whatever lol...

To be honest i was looking for a crx or 4th gen vtec i travelled 122 miles to look at a civic an it was diabolical nothing like the guy had described.

The next day a 74 mile trip to look at a crx again was really shabby, molestered and unorigional also he wanted silly money for it so i werent happy.


So i thought all was lost an i saw a few local standard cars (autotrader standardness) but nothing id really consider a car for keeps.

But thennnn i found myself a nice eg5 and it was love at first sight.

Picked it up last night after another 200 mile round trip but for me at least worth every mile, woke up this morning and decided to give it a wash and polish.
Specs: uhm Rear gathers, armrest,foggies, (needs yellow tint i think) big break upgrade, cat 1 alarm,full sevice history 80 percent honda annnd if i think of anything else il add it






Then i fitted my new Sparcos Very Happy


Then went for a drive :-p


Nightey night.

Comments criticism welcome.

Nice find, plenty of potential and in black aswell hard to find.

miss my old one, oh well its gone now (whore time)




anyways keep up the project and if your going to slam it avoid the koni yellow and ground control setup they go low but a way to harsh for our roads.

i've heard that if you take of the front anti roll bar and leave the back one on it sorts the problem out, but personaly i think its a load of shit, try lowering it a bit more at the front, and get some good tyres!
