Hey peeps been on here a while and not yet done a rough build thread.

Just piecing together the pics i can find but here goes...

Bought the civic Jan 2009 with 60k miles and mint condition for 1300;) bargain, looked like this;




just rota slips and a sportex back box. Next got it tinted and lowered it quite alot on coilovers...


after that i ripped the previous exhaust off acidently, but alas no pics of the new system ( a toyosports ebay jobby)
next was ek9 spoiler from my bro for christmas, test fit...

and a mugen rep front lip (trax 2009)

new manifold for 30

ep3 front seats

ek9 carpet


team heko wind deflectors

on...

black rear bench


then the time came for a front end spray, including ek9 bumper

diy ek9 lights

spoon rep wingmirrors


i then got bored of the rotas and sold them to a mate, i currently am using a set of calibre wheels just to get me around


also purchased the tanabe backbox off here


unfortunately i havent got pics of that fitted, i also now have spoiler tilts and a sterring wheel release waiting to go on from my bro for chrimbo and also a new front bumper and sir lip waiting to go on

plans now are to sell at the end of the year, but before then i am replacing the coilovers to go lower for the shows coming up, roll the arches and colourcode the bumpstrips and sideskirts

chances are i may be too attached to sell haha

hope you like:)

Very nice mate, SiR lip is always a good mod, such a nice lip. Personally id save for dc2/ek9 Recaros and ditch the EP seats, personally i hate them.

You can remove them on my lenso's, so I wouldnt imagine that it would be different on these. They are plastic so be careful

Looking good!


how did you get the front lens off the headlights?
...been told to bake them in the oven, surely being plastic they's melt and deform?

how to reseal them?

thanks.
