Jon's 8th Gen 2.2 Derv Project.

I bought this Civic back in April 17. A completely bog standard ES model.
Having spent the last year working on my L200, the Civic took the back burner.

Last month the Civic was backed into by some kind soul and didn't bother leaving a note.
Not a huge amount of damage but it has made the front end a touch lopsided.

Inspired by a few, I took a look through the "How To" section and got the bumper off... Then I took the trim, skirts and rear bumper off. If you're gonna do it, do it! Right?
So, after a scrub, the now misty grey plastics have been primered, and sprayed Matt Black.
Tomorrow I'll clear coat and refit.
I've also given the damaged bumper a quick fix fiberglass until I can get a replacement.
Thanks for the info fellas, you're awesome.
👍🏻👊🏻🤙&#x1f 3fb;

Well, the new Xmas tree fittings arrived, things were lacquered and re fitted.
I'm dead chuffed with the results.
What do think?

A couple of minor things today, got the rear windows tinted 95% and for giggles a Type D sticker or 2.
As everyone knows, a sticker is +5hp so a power boost right off the bat. 🤣

Happy Days.

Yesterday was grill replacement day.
What should have been 40mins ended up being 4 hours as I had to rebend the light bar, glue all the tabs on the drivers side light and re align the bumper.
However, it's all good now.
