    Bit of a wash and hand polish today. Needs a machine polish really. But nice to give her some love. And finally.... Actually went for a little drive few miles the next village. Seems to go just fine. Smooth and no smoke that I can see. Still leaking from somewhere I need to get her up and have a look. Clutch is gonna take some getting used too. Very snatchy.

Pads rusted Into the carrier etc. Luckily the caliper piston and hardbrake arm are free. Cleaned everything up. And replaced the disc and pads. Will Paint the caliperbtok at somepoint. Ran out of time.

    Ready for the road now guys!! headlights in, one wired up and the other to wire up before work tomorrow ready for the mot! Annoyingly the ABS light has come on as soon as I drove it today... I believe from the disc and pad change last year as it hasn’t driven since then! Hope I just need to go underneath and maybe just reconnect a plug! anyways, the resurrection in photos...

    THE TIME IS NEAR CIVIC5 ADDICTS! Insurance in place for the 8th, just need to put the refurbed headlights in and put a bit of water in the system (due to a slight seepage whilst it’s been sitting) and then get it to work Thursday to get its MOT!! Excited isn’t the word!!

    Little jobs again. Swapped the boot sides for some better ones. Finally got the headrests, belts and latches from a Pre facelift, so rear seats are in properly now. Fitted oem wheel nuts as not a fan of the ones that came on the car.

    She's ready to roll tbh. I've left the bumper off as thinking getting the intercooler mounted then it's just done then, one less thing to do later. Otherwise kinda ready to hit the road.

    I’ve mounted the second one in now so will be difficult to get a good photo of the back of the projectors but I’ll get one tomorrow when I’m at work... literally, on the back of the reflector I basically cut out where the circle is... and stuck a thumb nail size blob of strong windscreen mastic onto the reverse of the projector base at the 4 corners... I lined up my headlight to the beam setter then put the projector in with a fastening spring on the reverse to keep it held it whilst it set... I was then able the hook it up to a battery then manouvered the projector slightly until the beam was there or there abouts on the setter... I’ll attach some photos tomorrow to help explain

    So I went to Elan Valley and took some nice shots of the deck. What a beautiful place it is. Fell in love with it. Just one disappointment was the water level was low so no spillway action but may be next time. Hope you guys like the pics

    Oh yes, especially in DD's case! ES actually stood for "Executive Sport" although to really confuse things, laterly the very last "ES" Aerodecks and hatchs were badged as 1.6iES Executive Sport ( there being a tiny wee badge next to ES saying "executive sport". The 1.6SE was also similarly badged the same, only "Sport Executive"! I remember being in our then local Honda dealership Chatham Honda and asking the sales guy about the model badging and what was what and he just shrugged his shoulders and said "buggered if we know!" Lol And to add a final twist of confusion, I also saw a "1.6iES Sport Executive" . Seems Honda just flung badges on them at the end just to get em shifted/use up what was left, pretty much standard for any car maker at a models end of life.

    I've got the stage 4 competition clutch in mine and still after a few thousand miles it's the same. Very snatchy, does take some getting use too

    Thanks @Gel & @KiNK43 Well worth keeping it on the road yes, when I first heard they couldn’t get it on the lift to do MOT I was worried what I’d find going on under the sills, taken them off this afternoon and there’s rust all the way up more or less, some areas worse than others with a nice hole in front of the rear nearside jacking point being the main issue. The jacking point is bent, maybe that’s contributed to it somehow? Dropping off Wednesday morning for a couple of days of welding, shouldn’t be a big job, hopefully all gets cleaned up and sorted as well. Temporarily put side skirts back on after taking them off earlier but decided to swap to the VTI-S skirts I’ve had sat around, every cloud and all that!

    I was nervous this time round because I had a right go at the MOT Garage a couple of Months back when they misbehaved .....thankfully they weren't spiteful. I even had a new car lined up ....I can now stop dreaming about cars that run on a whiff of petrol but cost a fortune to have sitting outside my Home most of the time.
