PostSubject: Runabout "sleeper"   Tue 29 Mar 2011, 8:07 am

Right well when i got this car i thought i was just goin to scrap it and get a few coin. After having a look around it and seen it was in good nick bar the graffiti etc then i thought im going to run about in this. I didnt want to spend any money else where apart from the eg but i really need a car to get about and polo just wasnt cuttin it. Its a 1.4 but the engine is scrap. Doesnt start. Its just had a new full system and disks and pads. Last week i had bought an ek9 head and block. Didnt kniw what i was going to do with it, but yesterday i decided to get something built. So today i went to Michael @ Type two whos doing my k swap, told him i had a lump of cash here and asked him what he could do. So he built me an engine tonight! Have to keep him on his toes! Razz i bought a b16a2 bottom end of him as i knew the car it was previously in before. Got mounts all sorted and and ecu off Michael. Sourced out a box and throttlw body etc and ordered them tonight. Got a linkage and shafts etc sorted too. So tonight michael got the cleaner out and stripped the head down and gave it and the block a good clean. While it was all stripped dowm he gave the cam caps etc all a deep clean and they came up like new. He also did the valve stems as us honda boys hate blue smoke Razz after being built back up he sorted me out with a Toda timing belt and got it timed up. So by next week the runabout shall be ready! Anyways ill let the pics do the talking!

Big thanks to Michael! I only left his place tonight at 10pm! Not many guys that would do that! Legend!





































Not really the best pics but you get the idea.

Got stuck into the car today and got it all cleaned up. Took me ages its not completely done yet but loads of tfr has done the trick so far. Heres the pics.

LOOOOL!!! Im deeply hurt that you thought it was all 99p stickers. They where 69p!!!!!! lol!!!! I couldnt keep them on, as theyre paper they had faded and started to come off.

Few of my mates do a bit of graff and tagging so i might just have to get some of it done, but that was dud awful! My mate just fucked about with it. Tagged the bonnet too.

Basically a good steam cleaner, an autoglym wheel brush and my mate has his own car chemical/cleaning business (prestige car care) so he was able to sort me out with some TFR, basically just a heavy duty degreaser. Didnt take that long tbh, i just let the tfr bake on it for a bit then blasted it off. Once i done that i got the brush out and just kept going over different sections etc. May as well do it while the bay is out. Might look shit from outside but when you open the bay it will be super clean. Got all the arches etc done today and got a 4x114 hub conversion and calipers all round. Had to go for a set of coilies too Razz The runabout now stands me well over 1k. Once i start something like this i end up going all out.

Im actually sittin here laughing, my mates real anal about hondas (as you can see from the engine pics) and has his own shop etc and he goes all out when he starts something. He was like if i bet you clean that bay up people wil be like holy shit! I didnt believe him as i thought its just a shitty rhonda, but im smiling with the comments on here. Would you guys think this is a sleeper? Razz

Ive no idea what to do with it looks wise, basically where i live sticker bombed is well and truely played out but i still have a soft spot for it. I like the Graff look on cars too, im just no sure what to do with it. The bonnet as well, any suggestions?

if you want it to be a sleeper, get some 1.5 badges for the boot, and some subtle wheels. you want chavs to think its an old persons mobile

Your failing at making a sleeper mate, it looks MINT! haha

imo just keep the exterior BOG standard and clean, dropped on some nice wheels, maybe some colourcoding (strips, mirrors, handles etc).

Could be a real brake from the norm MB6's you see around, please paint the calipers, the 'hype R y0' red kills it

That wheel is awesome. Hmm its a sleeper as in it looks like a granda car, i always have to have a clean car mate, i couldnt have it being dirty and rough. I was just going to satin black the strips and handles. Easy done and will tidy it up. Also maybe stick a vti-s front splitter on it in satin black too. Im prob going to put some 96 spec dc2 wheels on it. The calipers just came like that, dont know what i will do with them. Have a guy close to me who paints nd powercoats for dirt cheap so ill see what happens. I change cars like the wind so dont be suprised if it comes up for sale Razz haha

Wooden wheel plus Slim Thug = WIN!
