Drewsus' NHB Civic 2.2cdti Type-S GT

After only owning this 2-3 weeks I have been tainted by this forum into doing a couple of mods, which I can imagine will turn into a full transformation.

I've only done a couple of minor things so far, like Civinfo stickers, Gers black type s sticker and a sports grille but here's a couple of pictures.





Here's one when i pulled up to work this morning after I spent 3-4 hours yesterdday, clay bar'ing, compounding, polishing and waxing trying to fix the previous owners paint neglect.



Spi Vision is going on tonight on the front and rear, wheels will be going in for a refurb shortly after 2 suffering kerbing from previous ownership. Going for a deep bronze colour I think. Along with colour coding and window tints

Any advice/opinions welcome.

Cheers, Drew.

Looking good Drew, be careful with compounds & polishes on it, hope it wasn't anything too harsh. Keep up the good work

It was just G3 scratch remover as it looked pretty battered from a roller car wash and just autoglym super resin polish, nice light pressure nothing too severe.

Thanks Shaun.

Definitely go for a deep bronze colour as this is how the original Storm alloys were painted for the accord. Used to have a set on mine. Really suite NHB.

Yeah, I do like bronze wheels on NHB. Seeing your picture makes me want to colour code even more!

Fitted some -30mm H&R springs last night. Here's the outcome. They'll end up sitting lower as they'll take a couple of days to settle etc.

Team hekos should be going on Monday.

Colour coding and new drilled/grooved discs and pads to be done by the end of the month all being well

looking really good Drew. Have you noticed much difference in how it drives now, or was the drop more about aesthetics?

How the chuff did you get your better half to help? Mine came out to see me today while I was putting in the reverse camera and just wandered of muttering "carlos fandango wheels next I guess?".....

It drives so much better, less body roll, feels like it now goes where you want it to. I'll be getting a FRS sometime soon also.

As for the Mrs helping, she helped me do a full engine rebuild on one of my old 2 stroke motorbike engines, she loves it haha.

Thank you.

Luckily my step dad does bodywork for a living so it will only cost me for a litre of NHB which is around 40 for solvent based from fishers.

If your local to lincolnshire, I'm sure he'd look at doing a homer on the cheap for you?

Edit: just seen your about 3hrs away so it wouldn't be worth it, i'd put away a good few hundred at least for a body shop.

Got my blades off and prepped up ready for paint today/tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing the result!

I carbon wrapped my door handles and fuel cap. It was my first ever go at wrapping. I will be doing the fuel cap again as I'm not entirely happy with it. But here's some pics.

My langka paint chip stuff arrived on Saturday, just waiting on touch up paint to sort my bonnet/wings out.

Pressed plates arrived on Saturday too so they will be going on sometime this week.

Got my hekos fitted. Rather easy to do!
