It's a 24 year old car, what do you expect?
Yeah ofcourse Im not expecting it to be in perfect condition and Im willing to work on it like I said; but is it going to be a big job for someone new to mechanics?It's a 24 year old car, what do you expect?
How so, cost in repairs?If you aren't broke so can't afford more, then you might be if you buy this.
Its a civic '99 1.5 lsi hatchback I can try and add some pictures from the ad somewhere here - Id like to do it up whist using it theyve put it up for £1,295.00 I could probably knock it down as Im probably gonna pay cash tooThis the civic eg shape? Might be 1 yr away from rusty arch’s/sills. If you willing to strip the thing down to inspect every inch then could be a ticking time bomb for stuff to go wrong, if it’s a daily that’s a pretty big risk. If a drive way doer upper over a few month/years and have a daily then it’s worth the risk for a good price
Thank you for responding. When I go to view it Ill be sure to do these checks - I am willing to put in the time and effort to fixing it up where needed as itll be my first project Id be working on so I willing to take a risk to a certain extent as I its a car I do like and would love to work on I just dont want to get fucked over with the "Front Vehicle structure is repaired but structural rigidity is not significantly reduced" but when viewing itll make it clearer for me - Just wanted a bit of clarifcation that its worth working onEk range, just gotta watch out on the sills and arch’s for rust. Engines easy to get at and service yourself, but rust will be your nemesis and keeping it at bay. Tap them panels on the edge for filler repairs and check prolonged oil leaks. Still expect to shell out a few pounds to keep it running due to age, Jesus mines 14 years old and I shelled out nearly the price I paid for it.
If you can get it for around £1150 be pretty decent
Found this from many years ago, pretty decent read and aid for what to look out when you go and have a scan over
What to look out for when buying an EK civic? [HELP!!]So I'm just making a few repairs to my starlet & setting it up for sale. In just over a months time i shall be buying my 1st EK [1.4 or 1.5, both same for insurance] .. I'm going to be looking for some of the obvious stuff like rust, dents, leeks, knocks & bumps etc. Is there any common...rmsmotoring.com
Is hasnt no, not that I can findI’m surmising the front has possibly taken an impact and the crash bar maybe taken a hit, that’s replaceable. The car got a cat recorded against it?
