MERK^^^

5 mounts, loom unclip, power steering pump, rad, zorst, drop your gear links or knock the pin out, not necasery though if you can lift the car instead, drive shafts from hubs and engine.

depending if im free and when your doing it i can give you a hand.

Update.. Put the wheels on, and well. quite a lot of poke on the front! affraid



hoping it'll be okay once its slammed on stretched 40's or 45's cheers might have to add a bit of camber though.

Oh and i look what i got this morning..

Very Happy

And everything on and fitted..



Ok Ok im lieing about the last pic. but that's hopefully what it will look like when its lowered, (which will be done in the next few days hopefully)

Also, im going to get my boot bonnet and roof carbon wrapped, not to everyone's taste i know, some of you will think im a prat for doing it but i have my reasons (all of them panels are PINK, won't even go back red, and respraying is costly tbh...)

please please dont get them carbon wrapped it looks so gash, just rock pink untill you can afford to get new bits or just go lookin round scrap yards for red bits + it will cost less then wrapping them in that shite!

Lool trust me, made me want to go an try an fit my sleeves right now when i photoshopped it.

An erghhh.. Im in two minds about it, because red bits are hard to come accross anyway, and when you do come across them most of them are pink :\ the wrap will cost me about 60/70, My uncle can fit it he wrapped the roof of his car, said it was "a piece of piss" so i just dno..
Might just do it as a temp thing, if you seen how pink it is you'd cry.. wouldnt be that noticable but the one side is RED and the bumpers are RED so... yeahhhh... not a good look Rolling Eyes

UPDATE! (all be it a bit of a shit one) Rolling Eyes

Sleeves are fitted, (lieing, only one is, dont ask... impact wrench died not even battery, just died....)

But yeah it has made the back quite abit lower with it..
cars lopsided bad though lool, cant be doing it much good!
will fit the rest thursday, getting my hands on a snap on impact hopefully.

But yeah...







I KNOW I NEED LOWER PROFILES. AND STRETCH.
Im hearing i can get 40, 165's all round for 140, not to sure if the guy was a barry bullshiter though..

Again, back hasnt been lowered yet just looks it..
Luckily my shocks look like they've been replaced at one time in there life.. pretty mint.

Also took my number plate off, gonna relocate it somewhere, might just put it in the window and be a rebel.

Thursday im planning to tilt the spoiler as well and do a few other bits n bobs,
Like spray my standard grille black/dark grey, might "EK9" my lights when im at it too,
They've got a bit of condensation in them at the mo so..

oh also, viynl wrap, soon come... (don't kill me... Embarassed )

adjuster sleeves will be out as soon as ive got lower profiles on!
can't even go much lower atm, i cant even fit my finger between the arch and the tyre!
will probably need stretch aswell, its wound down fully but,
its still got three standard springs on so its obvs not that low yet

I went out about an hour ago tho and it seems lower Smile
So hopefully when its fully settled n bedded in it'll be a little lower Smile

you might need to be carefull on full lock with it like that if you say you cant get your finger under, watch out for dips and holes if your turning.

all you have to do is just open your booth and there are 4 nuts, 2 either side. take the spoiler off, put washer on the rear stub bolts and refit. easy job

will go and do that in a minute cheers



quick little Chop of how i might want it looking in the end, i think the dark grey webs look sick!
- Gloss black strips
- tilted spoiler
- dark grey webs obviously
- lower profiles
- ek9'd lights, (i know they're just tinted there but best i could do.)
- Little bit lower
- Gloss strips
- Facelight rear lights

UPDATE


Got the rest of the sleeves on today, wasn't as bad as id thought, lca's didn't even give me any trouble..

Would have got pic's but it got dark and every ones seen a low civic on here...

Deffo need lower profile tyres and stretch, got so much rubbing!

slight Problem though..

Erm... the left hand rear doesn't seem to be dropping properly... its wound down pretty much all the way and its no where near as low as the right hand rear.. and that's not even wound all the way down, pretty sure the struts are assembled the same on both sides etc etc.. anyone know what it could be?
