Michael's FK2

So now I will begin my gallery tread with my progress towards getting the Civic as I prefer it.

Got my civic from a guy who never had done anything to it other than driving it though a washing hall. extremely dirty.

So I started with have the car sprayed with wax treatment against rust.



Then the Polish process



My Civic when I got it and I was finished polishing it.



Then the Gear knob/gaiter mod, and at the same time carbon wrap the gear trim.
But first 2 things I missed in most of the HOW TO, how to get the gear trim lose I used a small putty knife, and just pressed it in where there is no edge and a small push and I could remove it with my fingers.



The other thing was to remove the original gear knob, you have to pull down the lowest part of the gear knob, then you can unscrew the knob.



I have now a new gear knob (Skunk 2) gaiter and carbon wrap







I have ordered a Type R spoiler and I will get the trims coloured in the same colour as the car in the beginning of the new year.

I I will fit my Steering wheel badge, my brake light vinyl cover, the civinfo sticker, and carbon wrap the dash.

Got the dash wrapped, I upload some pic when it's daylight and I have cleaned the car some more.



Then I fitted the brake light cover



Looks so great, especially after I have removed the chrome civic logo from the back.

My spoiler has arrived and needs some attention.







But what should I use my time for anyway

New rear brake disks (Ferodo coat premier) and pads (Ferodo Premier)

Got the induction kit fitted

Should have done this a long time ago, amazing sound, all my flat spots are gone, my gasoline use will suffer, but this is great.



I chose to have the bottom of the old air filter box stay in, this way I still get cold air to the new filter, when I go to MOT I can fit my old filter and box and get it though MOT without any remarks, and (this is speculation) I think this way the sound gets reflected more.
