So first things to go are the wheels, i bought a nice brand new set of gloss black alloys 18x8J with an offset of 45, fills the arches a lot better now. Didnt want to go to 19s been there done that and i also wanted to retain the handling as is.
Have kept the wheels that were on just need those rim protectors taken off, have a brand new set of Uniroyal Rainsports on so aint gona be wasted.
Next i fitted Hid Xenons 4600K ac, was a real pain in the cdti but all done.
Spent 2 straight days sorting the paintwork, was ok but not up to my standard, all clay barred, cut, machine polished and sealed and waxed, water rolls off now.
Was some bad spots on/in the drivers headlight which i put down to maybe the last owner having their own Hids in and leaving the caps off the back causing condensation, external there was slight uv issues not bad , so out with the headlight, replaced then i had to sand and polish back up the external face. Look like new now.
Door handle common fault with the screws all sorted.
Engine bay cleaned looks like a different car, also replaced any missing clips etc all with Honda parts.
Wheel arches had some loose clips, all replaced and fit perfect now.
All calipers painted black.
Slight corrosion which i have noticed on many Civics wiper arms, sorted only took an hour.
I have also ordered a new set of Eibach lowering springs which will be fitted next chance along with new top mounts and maybe shocks just for the hell of it.
Will also do a full service soon as, i dont trust many dealers tbh, prefer using the good stuff myself. Knowing its done properly.
Have the grey trims to do this weekend with Wurths Plastic Trim Dye, was gona colour code but again i wana retain the Type S look to a point.
I will post progress pics when i get the chance. Sorry Guys.
Did anyone clock the private reg that was on my Audi and that will go on the Honda, it will be the perfect reg lol.
