Oops I did it again ..

Hitting double figures now ..

Spotted this example in the for sale section of this very forum, I happened to mention to someone that I was really impressed with the colour of it. The very same person bought my CW FD2 and the rest as they say, is history.

It belonged to Ron aka Top Geezer on here , who I knew had a DC5 before this , so that was one box ticked. It has only been in the country for a year, and come with some nice additions , namely js racing 60rs and intake, toda decat and mapped with flash pro. It also has koni rear dampers which is a popular mod amongst FD2 owners and not forgetting a mugen front lip - Bonus. Also included was a nice pioneer sph-DA120 stereo with rear cam.

Luckily for me I retained a few parts from my white one. I'll be swapping the 60rs for my toda decat and getting the map tweaked to suit.

I've also retained my plate FD02RRR

My mugen GP wheels will also be going on , along with ;

Cusco front and rear anti roll bars
Eibach rear camber arms
Project mu club racer discs front and rear
Project mu teflon brake lines
Project mu ns400 rear pads
Project mu hc800 front pads
Js racing strut brace
Mugen plug cover
Spoon gear knob
Spoon baffled sump

When they arrive ..

Mugen carbon bonnet
Feels carbon diffuser.

I have already fitted my mugen oil cap and feels rad cap , along with my Seeker carbon blade

Some pics.

At auction.



Imported by torque gt , grade 4.5b




So Ron had it for a year but he now has an itch for an FK2.

In I stepped , went and had a look. All good with me , a deal was made.



Then the removal of my existing mods commenced.



Thanks to Tgm and my local jap specialist for the quick turnaround



I requested that the aux belt was changed before I collected it. So thanks to dream automotive for that.



In the mean time I cleaned up my GP wheels and exhaust




Then I collected the car yesterday.



This morning I fitted my carbon seeker blade and debaged one side of the rear.



I then gave it a foam and wash.




Also fitted my spoon ti knob and engine bay trinkets.



I then went for a little drive out and took a couple more photos.



Some random head unit pics.

Worth noting it has Honda access "bass works which I know little about but is an upgraded speaker option.






Watch this space..... :)

Yes the previous owners plate is under it and he didn't want to interfere with the camera , my retained plate will be on it soon enough.

dotty,
read your thread before but forgot why you sold the other one. what size/ offset are your mugen gps ?
looks like your brakes will be fierce. have you considered a m/c stopper ?

Update since purchase on Saturday. A visit to Tgm.

Js racing 60rs removed and toda catback fitted which mates nicely with the toda decat it has fitted.

Js catback will be listed for sale soon.

Mugen GP forged wheels/ mugen heptagon nuts are now replacing the standard wheels and I am pleased to report they suit it very nicely..




Everything looks clean underneath, after all it's only been on uk soil for a year and was off the road for winter.




Fresh oil change using my preferred oil - shell helix ultra 5W40 fully synthetic.




Voila.










Will possibly get a map tweak to suit the toda catback although it's not essential right now.

Also managed to get hold of a free service book as my local dealer has the administrators in



....Next up ; pmu front and rear discs , ns400 rear / hc800 front pads and pmu teflon brake lines - will tie that in with getting the cusco front and rear anti roll bars fitted , eibach camber arms and a geo tweak.

I'm also going to adjust the rear shock stiffness as it feels a bit soft on the rear (believe it's on the softest setting)

Then hopefully the Feels diffuser and mugen bonnet will be here ...

Still to fit in due course; Spoon side mirror glass , mugen short shifter and spoon baffled sump.

Nice mod you got there.
May I ask how do you compare Modulo suspension with Koni shock?
I have Modulo suspension on my FD2. I always want to try out Koni shock. I find the back a bit bumpy at times even I am on full soft. It's not an issue when I am driving alone but it's not very nice to put my baby daughter at the back seat.
(Ironically she seems to like the bumpy ride though, always fall asleep within a few minutes :))

What are you gonna do with my Enkeis now then? That red colour wouldn't suit the purple I think. IMO they'd look great painted flat/matte black
If not I reckon you could sell them for more than you paid. Very light track wheels considering they're not forged ;)
