Excellent choice of car, will look brilliant once finished. A few ideas similar to what I have. Grill will look smart fitted. Where you getting the centre caps?

Well i for one love the civic badges on the wheels! Defo keep us posted on the modifications. Looking superb already.
I'm glad to see that the trim on the Type R grille is removable. I posted a question elsewhere asi need a replacement one of those coz of some nasty stone damage.
Anyway, keep up the good work!

Out of interest, how much was the replacement grille?

thanks for the comments!


i will get the centre caps made by a place called dmb graphics! will get them made as a gel badge.

the grill was £99 off ebay, but it's a Sport grill not a Type-R one.

well its been raining here all day and i tried to do the grill in my garage but for the life of me i couldnt get the old grill off!! i could just see the clips in the bottom corners but it wouldnt budge!
Does anyone know, is it just a case of the two clips at the top, the two bolts at the top and the two clips in the bottom corners? is there anything at the bottom in the middle?

I'll either have to do it in the daylight or take the bumper off. :confused:

But anyway i got the wheels fitted!





just needs to be lowered now!! :D

I was thinking about what colour to do the calipers, either silver.. or blue?

Wheels look great!
Personally i think the calipers would look good in blue. Really don't think they would stand out too much in silver .... but maybe that's what most other people would prefer???

Not sure how you can do the blue bolts but kinda like those also
You can buy them! they are lightweight too. :D £10 for 4, and £15 for locking ones. £55 all in! :cool:

i had them on my old civic!

Don't suppose you know how resilient the anodised coating is? Don't wanna spend all that money and then have the tyre fitters make a bloody mess of them!

If you get blue centre caps, would you be in a position to sell me some too? I really like the look of them...
