PostSubject: my first build thread,hope you like   Wed 09 Feb 2011, 6:18 am

hi there people.
got my civic 1.4 the end of december,it was completely standard when i got it.got alot of plans for it but gotta save up the pennys.

here are a couple of pics of how i got it.



i then managed to get some coilovers and some wheels.

coilovers fitted,


and wheels fitted,


i have just brought some fogs and a square number plate.which i think look quite nice,


next plans are smooth out the black bump strips in the bumpers and a change of wheels when i can afford some new ones or if someone wants to swap for some jdm style wheels.

anyway,hope you like and feel free to give me some ideas for future plans.a change of engine will happen eventually but not for a while.cheers guys

nice start mate

i reckon JDM sized plate would look better than the bike one atm and imo keep the bump strips, throw a SiR lip on and it would look real nice

If you're keeping the bump-strips, make sure you use vinyl and rubber care on them to keep them a deep glossy black, otherwise they look weathers and dull.

you could just use coupe bumpers save the risk of any filler cracking
