Hey,

I've received a few PM's over the past few weeks about getting more pictures of the rear gap, which is visible when the rear door is open on a 5 door Civic which has had a Type R conversion.

So, instead of sending them on to individuals, I've decided to post them here for all to see.

Hopefully this will prove helpful to anyone thinking of doing the conversion.

Thanks! Really helpful and just confirmed me going ahead with the conversion.
Is it only at the read you see a gap then?

I just need some extra cash for me to go ahead with it :)

I've not long come back from my local scrappy (was looking for a wing mirror part) which they had a type R there that had been in an accident which I would have pinched a few bits off but they wouldn't let me as they want to see if they could do anything with the car first... Was gutted I would have only needed to get the front splitter and maybe a front arch (only saw one side of it)

Thanks again

No worries Steve, happy to help, sorry for the delay in the pics!

I feel your pain, took me what seemed like ages to gather up all the necessary parts.

Civinfo proved invaluable though, got 95% of my parts through here in some shape or form.

Yeah, there are a few ways to fill it, quite a few posts on here on various tips and techniques.

To be honest, I'm not bothered by it, which is strange really, considering I am usually a perfectionist and have a mild case of OCD :)

Any type of filler used would eventually crack,too much of a gap.
A strip of rubber like the one that goes round the doors would do the trick.

Could you take a pic of the arch a bit higher up with the door closed ??

Your arch looks like it tucks in alot in pic 1 & 2 ?? does it line up with the door ok ??

Bump of the century, may I ask whether the Type S arches are the same as the Type R ones?

Like, would Type S 3 door arches fit my 5 door 2.2 EX the same as this thread suggests?

I am trying to put rear spoiler of type r in my 5door Civic.

As far as i know i shoulf buy the rear spoiler of course, the trinagle exhaust, and the rear arches.

The side skirts, front arches, and front spoiler will remain the same right???

Because few told me that i sould change the whole body kit or nothing. Because the typer's arches doesnt fit with the 5door civic's skirts.

Is that true?

If i had to make modifications to the arches in order to fit with the 5door skirts that also bad news for me. Because i want to start this project from rear spoiler and after a year maybe or when i have the money to continue with it. But then and only then.

The rear can be done with out the front arches, side skirt and lower front bumper.
