Cheers Vipe-r, lovin' your new wheels.

I can't wait to get the colour coded trim on. Just waiting on the paint shop atm.

Have also been trying to find Accord Type R front brake carriers but they're difficult to sang on their own. Someone has offered me some refurb'd calipers (sans carriers).

Waiting for parcels is a killer :(

I have plans but no parts, yet...

Think I got a good deal off a well known auction site the other day tho. Will know for sure when it turns up :lol:

As you're enjoying the tease, one of the parcels will be...round

I only like being teased by members of the opposite sex, and then only to a point, usually they're tongue...[smilie=holyshit.gi:

First parcel of the week arrived and fitted :)

OEM fuel filler


Replaced with an alloy 'sports tank lid'


I managed a cheeky win on fleabay, at just £32.50 (25% MRP). Auction ended at 11.30am on a Thursday...a weekday bargain :cool:

Nice. :thumbsup:

Been looking at the black option, but been put off by the RRP.

Linky to the supplier would be good Farqs, if you don't mind kind sir...
Thanks, I too had been deterred by the high MRP, but a bargain was sniped which swung it for me.

Alas there isn't a cheapo supplier (that I know of), mine was a private ad.

It didn't come with bolts or instructions :facepalm2: They didn't deter me as I have plenty of spare fittings, guides can be found on't'interweb and I discovered that Blu-tack makes a great template :beer:

Funnily enough I put a bid in on that listing too!

Looks good and I still want one, but I couldn't bring myself to bid more than what I did :(.

Refurb'd Accord Type R front anchors just arrived - thanks to a :civinfo: member :cool:




They just about survived the ParcelFarce deliveries but the powder coat will need a touch up [smilie=sadmeh-gb.g:

I have been working from home for the last 3 weeks and they choose to deliver on the only 2 days I am in office :facepalm2:

Fortunately they ignored our 2nd reschedule attempt and tried for a 3rd time, which saves me a trip to the depot :thumbsup:
