was unaware of this site up until the other day and from the looks of things looks like a good set up. my name is dave and live in the hamshire area. i drive a cosmic ep3 and heres a few pics for you to enjoy. toying with going down the normal route of k pro etc and finally a rotrex set up or to do my bike lincense and find my thrills on 2 wheels instead of four lol. im also a member on ctro although find people can often be rude and extremely sarcastic towards other people and this seems like a much friendlier site which is good. also for people in the area of hampshire im a member of hampshire jap cars which you might be interested in checking out for more local meets.

Hi dave,

she wasn't in such a good state when i picked her up lol, pictures can be decieving but after spending about 20 hours on her i menaged to get her looking decent again, been well looked after just needed a good clean and a bit of tlc really. the calipers had surface rust and looked rank so freshened them up with some hammerite hammered silver, fitted new oem discs with ferrodo ds2500 pads on the front, spent about 8 hours on washing, claying, polishing, waxing and finally sealing her.took off the old discs and sprayed the hubs as they had gone rusty although got got some new discs and ferrodo pads for the rear now.got some jdm mats and some d2 rear lca's which look the nuts. oh yeh also fitted a rear jdm rear arb.just a couple of things left before i decide on which route to go down, bike or mods lol.

1)need the wheels refurbed (any recomendations in the hamts area?) thinking either white or oem.

2) need the front bumper and lip respraying as has been done before but a poor lacquer has been used and has gone all pitted on one corner, so probs gona get the bonnet done too to get rid off all stone chips. also got a little blister on the back bumper which needs sorting.

only had her for about 10 weeks now and she lives in the garage during the week lol. done 40k and just had a full 50k service to spoil her so now shes feeling fresh. oh yeh and also menaged a 14.9 1/4 mile time on a **** makeshift airfield drag strip which i though was pretty good for a completely standard ep3.

sorry for the lecture lol.

Cracking car - chopping my FN2 in for an EP3 in NHB in the coming weeks - can't wait.. :D

Great pics.

TGM in Hampshire can sort wheels out for paint/refurb, I'd also go to them for services and anything else car related - They are Jap/Honda specialists (Sankey Lane, Fleet) - other than that I can personally vouch for Wheelworks UK in Crawley - well worth it, and you can get a discount if you tell 'em you're off the forum, and that the guy with the Viper Green Wheels recommended you (see avatar).
