  1. Some new things about the civic :) Bought a rare OEM armrest Got some oldschool winter wheels New LED reverse light bulbs New pre-facelift taillights (with red tinted reverse light), and a new sized license plate, to fit the coming US rear bumper Made myself a wind fairing from plexi Bought an extra front bumper. It will be smoothed and have a respray together with the US rear bumper. Said goodbye to winter 2 weeks ago. Lowered the civic again, switched wheels and installed a new set of amber corners Installed some extra reflectors on the sides of the bumpers. They are a little bit brighter, but I like it! Grtz
  2. So, let's update this thread a little more! Been a long while, lots of things happened Let's start. The faded grey front bumper has been treated with a plastic restorer. Here's the result. Before After Went to some car meets Found some pre-facelift taillights. Mine are infected with mould on the inside, because of some leaks. I've cleaned the new ones, and put a waterproof silicone kit around the edges. Also soldered the wiring, because there is 1 brake bulb less in them. Before winter I've put the civic back to original, so it's "safe" for winter :) Some weeks ago I've installed the 4-2-1 header. Also found a US rear bumper in the Netherlands. It was a 6 hour drive but it was worth it :) Last week I've bought myself a new set of wheels for winter. They are in very good shape, only thing to do is make custom center caps :) Yesterday I've been collecting some stuff to complete the rear muffler piping. Install will be for within 2 weeks I hope. And last but not least I've made myself an extra rear fog light, because the US rear bumper hasn't got any fog lights. So this fog light will be installed with a bracket underneath the bumper for MOT and winter :) And oh yea, the civic also has got a new bigger radiator and a new thermostat, because of some temperature issues. That's it for now! Grtz
  3. Last week I've done some more little things on the civic. Rolled the rear arches myself, put on some tow hooks (still had them from the corolla), mounted and connected the funny horn, new radio, put cables for the small woofer in the back, etc Front tow hook Rear tow hook Button of the funny horn The woofer (don't mind the strap around it ) Removed the rear headrests Today I've put some roof rack bars on the roof Only mayor things left to do are: weld some custom piping onto the muffler, mount the manifold, and work on the front bumper to get it black again in stead of grey. And oh yea, the red civic is already sold. Grtz
  4. SOOOO... Let's downdate and update this thread after more than 6 months! :) There have been some big changes. Some idiot drove into the front of the corolla, which made the smoothed bumper crack. It was all OK with insurance etc, but it made me think about something new. And that's how it all started changing. A pic of the last meeting with the corolla: A week after this picture, the corolla went back to original mode, for sharing reasons (home-work traffic with girlfriend etc) : Meanwhile I've been looking around for something funny, completely for myself. I bought the following Honda civic ED7 ('91) : Was really impressed with the power it had, 130hp. A lot of fun when you're used to a 1.4 diesel! :) But... The civic was in really bad shape when I looked closer at it. Some weeks later I bought a 2nd civic EC9 from '91, for spare parts: But as you can already see on these pictures, the white 'spare parts civic" EC9 was in much better shape! It didn't run for the last 2 years so I've done some service on it myself. After that, I made like 5 appointments with the local garage, to get this white civic on the road (MOT etc). Finally after 10 weeks of annoying calls, waiting,... it's on the road! Meanwhile I've changed some little things. Oldskool steering wheel: Orange indicators + ambercorners: Red panel on the boot lid: Then I ordered some wheels and tires. Front, 15x7,5 ET26 with 165/50R15 tires: Rear 15x8,5 ET13 with 185/45R15 tires: Which stretch like this: And all that, in combination with a custom VR6 front bumper lip and rear camber kit makes this: Next thing to do is roll the rear arches to get some more space with the rear tires. And coming winter I will weld my spoon style replica exhaust onto it: That's it for now! Grtz
  5. Been a while that I've been here lol. Some things happened lately, not so funny, really My girlfriend came home some weeks ago, with an exhaust which was almost laying on the ground. It came off right behind the cat, luckily it was laying on a piece of the frame, else it would have been alot worse, at 70km/h... One week later she comes home and I see her looking at the right front wheel. Yea indeed, she curbed half of the wheel. Not the steelies, but the repainted winter set. And to make it complete, I had to change my license plate, because me and my girlfriend bought an own house, and so we had to change adress. Since 2 years there are new license plates and laws about them in Belgium, and it was time to receive a new one. These new plates are not allowed as a sticker in the front, the old one was no problem. So I ordered some kind of motorbike plate (legal size), to put on the cleaned t-sport front bumper in summer Our new house (not my corolla in front, it's from my parents :P ) The awful new license plates (and one replica of the old plate, as memory ) And today, because of the nice weather, I've been dropping the KW V2 coils again. Afterwards I tried to get on our new driveway for the first time, and it's kinda close. But with a little scraping I can drive on and off, front and backwards Soon I'll try to fit a small brace to mount the small numberplate onto the cleaned t-sport front bumper. Grtz
  6. Eibach / TTE lowering springs. It will stay kind of comfy. Coilovers will make the car bounce alot, and it more used for badass lowering :P I've got KW variant 2 coilovers, and I'm nothing but positive about them. Grtz
  7. Thanks man :) Thinking the same after all ;) Grtz
  8. Found a nice picture on the internet :) After some editing Grtz
  9. Some pictures of yesterday :) And a video of my new oldskool horn :P The Original horn is still working. Grtz
  10. Whatever store that sells them :) A friend of mine ordered them on ebay yes :) It can be possible that you must cut a very little piece from the led bulb holder, but you'll notice that when you try to fit them. Don't worry, they will still work fine. If there's a led that doesn't light up, just take it out, turn it around, and put it back in. Grtz
  11. Sure, buy some white T5 neo wedge leds and switch them :p
  12. Hey guys, I'm sorry, haven't been on the forum lately. The poly rear bumper has been cancelled, it's for sale actually. After fitting and measuring it seemed that I couldn't get onto our garage entry without damaging the bumper, it was just too low for me, with this ride height. Switched the wheels and front bumper again first, because of the snow there was, I didn't want to ruine the 18" wheels because of the salty roads :) Got a Japanese parking sticker And then I've been to my first meeting this year, in summer mode ofcourse. 18", lowered again, front bumper, exhaust, tow hook, completely red taillights, etc :) Last week I've removed the yellow tint from the headlights, didn't match the wheels good I think. So now I've got normal headlights again :P Grtz
  13. It's in progress ;) After sanding and fitting a few hours, it's fitting kinda good now. Just some little details, and it's good. On the 8th of march I've got an appointment in the exhaust company, to re-weld the japstyle exhaust, so it will fit nicely in the bumper's diffusor :) Grtz
