Hi everyone,

Thought it would be best to start a bit of a build thread on here.

Had a few "issues" with the car when I first got it, mainly being from the garage i got it from and them denying everything.

Clutch needed replaced and Rust on the roof.

Luckily Honda sorted out the roof FOC but I had to get the clutch replaced myself.

Few photos of how I first got the car.







Been taking my time with this civic compared to my last one and reading through a lot of build threads aswell for inspiration. :)

Been collecting some parts for awhile now and storing them until I can get everything fitted at once for a big change.

TDI North 3" exhaust, build quality is amazing! :like:







Standard brakes really let the car down in my opinion so decided to order the Stoptech BBK via TDI. Also got spacers to make sure they will fit the standard wheels until I decide on other wheels to go for.



Still got more bits to buy before fitting everything, but currently trying to make up my mind on engine work.

Then had a little photoshoot.







Car was covered in swirl marks so had a very good friend give it a good going over with the machine polisher.

Really brings out the bronze in the paint.



Also have a Tegiwa Manifold sitting in the spare room but waiting to get it booked in for mapping first before fitting.

This weekend was surprisingly nice so headed down to my buddy's house since he had my jack and stands and got the spacers fitted. Unfortunately we totally forgot to take before and after photos as we where to busy working on his impreza.

Big thanks to the guys at TDI North for getting all the parts to date.

Comments Welcome.

Best colour by far!!! :)

I'd get the manifold and exhaust fitted before a remap as you'll need one again after if you wait!:popcorn:

Nice car mate, good to see you are sorting out the week points first. I honestly think the oem brakes are not good enough for standard power.

Sorry for the long reply everyone been really busy recently,

Thank you all for your positive comments on the build so far :D

Noticed Tdi North had opened up their online shop and had a discount going, safe to say that I couldn't help myself so decided to treated myself to a Competition Clutch Flywheel






Car is now booked into my local Honda specialist to have a service along with having the Stoptech's and the Flywheel fitted. Safe to say I'm not looking forward to bedding in the brakes.

Looking for some ideas from everyone for what to do for the intake side of things? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Bill

Thanks for that buddy, rather take my time with this one making sure everything is future proof for the rest of the build.

Got the brakes and flywheel fitted and WOW what a difference they both make. After bedding in the brakes they are amazing! By far the best purchase so date :D

Gave the car a good clean and decided to grab some photos of it today before the weather suddenly changed to hail/snow :(







Edit: Also on the look out for some Evo 8 or 9 Enkei's!

Comments Welcome
