At the moment I have a stock nighthawk black FN2. I am the type of guy who will say I want to do this and I want to do that to my car but never bother my backside to do it. Unfortunately though I broke my leg 2 months ago and I decided that i would take advantage of the spare cash I would have (I get full sick pay) and spare time so I decided to make a start on doing some mods.

I am starting off with mostly visual with the hope of moving on to performance. This is a work in progress and I will get some pictures up once it's all finished but just wanted to put a list up of what I'm doing.

FITTED:
Ricks red footwell lights

6000k bulbs from mr jp

Alpine ixa-w407bt double din

Skunk2 gear knob

TO DO:
Type r grill badge and decals (waiting on delivery)

Team heko wind deflectors (waiting on delivery)

At the moment I am currently painting my calipers but its taking me a while as my leg is slowing me down.

I will keep updating this with my progress and add pictures when everything starts coming together.

I hate sitting about doing nothing so decided that this would be a good thing to keep me busy.

Grill badge and decals arrived today so will hopefully get them on next week.

Also got word that my wind deflectors have been dispatched so will hopefully get them next week.

Had a hold up with the calipers as the dealer replaced one of my wheels and the locking nut is far too tight so will get my mum to drive me in to the dealers tomorrow for them to sort it cause nobody in my family can get it to budge.

Hopefully have everything done by the start of november :)

Got my wind deflectors fitted but have not taken any pictures yet as the car needs a good clean and the weather has been crap.

Finally finished my front calipers so will post some pictures up.

Before anyone mentions it i know the black isnt perfect but its a lot harder than it looks and you dont notice it when standing a few metres away so im very happy with it.

Just a small update.

Fitted my grill badge and decals and im very happy with them.

I still have to fit my new rear brake pads and paint the calipers but the weather up here is crap just now.

Just ordered a Civic aluminium fuel flap off here so cant wait to get that.

Finally im at the moment 50/50 on getting the HKS RSK and will probably need to make a decision by tomorrow so that might get added to my list.

The modding bug is definately taking over :)

Just ordered my adjustable camber bolts from abp today so should get them tomorrow. Will be getting the car booked in to get the FRS done since Tinkz sold it to me with his description of how good it is.

Aluminum fuel flap arrived today so will hopefully get that on in the next couple of days.

Pics of the finished article (for now) should be soon :)

get some pics of the fuel cap up mate, been thinking about gettin one, where did you get yours and how much:confused:.

The FRS is amazing, you can really feel the difference going round corners. and gettin the alignment done properly is the biz, that machine john uses is a wonder,,,,,,, no wires:D

Off to find a roundabout lol:D:D:rolleyes:

Sorry for the lack of pictures of the car but almost finished everything so will get some picks up very soon.

I got a leather gaitor for the gear stick and got it fitted yesterday. Goes amazing with the skunk2.

The only thing i have left to fit is my aluminium fuel flap and all being well i will get it fitted tomorrow.

This also arrived in the post this morning



Cannot wait to get it on.

Im thinking of ordering HKS s/s braided lines for a nice brake upgrade :)
