  1. Hi, it is Sue, Nicks wife. I hope you don't mind me doing a comment. I like to thank all of you for your support. This forem was Nicks thing and it is lovely seeing what he meant to people. I lost my sole mate the morning Nick died. My girls keep me going. It is so hard. I hope to meet some of you at the funeral, I wish we wasn't meeting in such a bad way.

  2. I text Jonny last night as I haven't seen him and he has the only key for the car to start it, he is coming in the next day or so I will talk to him then. I will put his response on here so you know. The car still looks so clean, so glad we had a garage.

  3. Sadly Nick passed away from unforseen health issues. Nick was a popular member of civic5 from the very day he joined back in 2010, always helpful to everyone,and always up for a laugh. He was also a valued member of the Civic5 Team, and helped run our Facebook group. A true Civic M enthusiast, Nicks own Civic was a stunning MB6 VTiS, which he loved. He spent time and money making the car mint, and had it to a few meets too. He was a regular in the forum, even logging on when he was in hospital while waiting to go into surgery for a kidney transplant! A true gent, he will be massively missed in our club. Nick leaves a wife and 2 daughters. Both Nick and his civic will be forever remembered everyone here at civic5.com R.I.P. mate

  5. Thanks for the lovely comments guys. For those who couldn't attend, thought I'd give a wee insight into the day. Jim's funeral was, well, massive! Even knowing him as closely as I did, even I didn't realize just how many people loved the big guy. Was a truely amazing turn out. We were at the back of the funeral precession from Jim's house in Mayfield, and it went down to Woodburn and along the street where he was brought up and along the streets we used to play in when we were kids. It then went along the "Whitecraigs" road (a lot of the Scottish meets have taken in this route to get to the first meeting point) which is where Jim and I had our "race track". Many's the day we had fun racing along that road with all it's bends and hairpins (all at the speed limit officers! ) . It then went onto the dual carrigeway towards Seafield where the crematorium is. Funny, it was almost like a civic5 meet, with Jim in the lead car and us at the very rear. We were making sure the precession stayed together, moving out to the outside lane to slow traffic when coming to roundabouts to make sure we all stayed together. Felt like I was his wing man, like we both have been for each other all our lives. The precession then turned in to the big bus depot where he worked, and all the drivers were lined up outside the main building, and alll gave him a salute as he went past. Really did bring a lump to your throat and a tear to our eyes, he was so well thought of. The funeral service was really different. I had been asked to write a few stories from our past when we were growing up, and so did Joanne. First funeral I've ever been to where the people were all laughing there heads off, even the minister! Just what Jim would have wanted! Although he might have a few things to say to me when I see him on the other side again for embarrassing him!!!! lmao Even Civic5 was mentioned a lot! One of the stories was about when Gayle, Paul and me were on our way to Japfest and we met Jim in his big bus on the motorway. The antics he pulled that day were hilarious! He'd really wanted to go but couldn't get the time off work, so instead thought it would be a great idea to race DD with a double decker bus!! The looks on his bosses faces when they heard the story was priceless!!!!! In true Jim style, we went into the funeral to Queen "don't stop me now" and came out to Queen "We will rock you", and at the tea after it there was Queen playing all through the tea. Even at the tea, every table there were people swapping funny stories about him, and it was all fun an laughter. Again, what he would have wanted and captured the spirit of who he was and what he was about. The world will never be the same again now he's gone, but I'm lucky to have known him, proud to have been his best mate right to the end, and happy to have all these great memories. RIP mate.

  10. It's really nice to hear you in the forum Sue. I think it mat help you being in here too aswell as FB, as you'll feel the love we all have for Nick here too, and as always, we're always here for you if you need us. When I was reading the pm you sent me on FB, I was honestly fighting back the tears, really brings it all back to me about when I lost Dawn. Losing your soul mate is the hardest thing you'll ever have to go through, and it leaves such a massive hole in your heart that you feel can never be fixed. But through time with the help and support of your friends and family (including everyone here too), you'll find your way through it. And although a lot of people aren't lucky enough to ever experience having a soul mate, you can find love and happiness again through time and possibly a new soul mate. I didn't think it was possible, and not in the space of time it happened, but I did find love again and another true soul mate in @Gayle . She's really brought back the old me (not sure if thats a good thing! lol) and shown me that life is deffo for living, and you have to make the most of each and every day. It's the most difficult time of your life right now, but it will get easier, trust me. And Nick would deffo want you to be happy again too, because that's the kind of guy he was, always wanting/making people happy. I loved the prom photo you posted up on FB, know Nick will be looking down and be so proud.

  11. Better let you all in in whats happened! Basically, I've been getting fed up having all these cars!!! My prime objective was to spend all my time (and money) on DD making her into a show car. But after buying Ruby back, it meant I didnt have the time to do it with running 3 cars, and spending time on all three. So I had to get rid of either Ruby or Lexy. This is where my rpoblem began, because I love them both, but for different reasons. Ruby for the speed, the handling, and the memories tied up in her. Lexy for the creature comforts, all the toys, and the safety. With meeting Gayle, my priorities in life have changed, as its not just me to think of anymore, I've got Gayle and my new familt to think of. So Lexy was winning the battle on the safety side. But she didnt have the fun factor that Ruby has! So it was back to even scores again. But the thought of ruby being a daily driver, even during the winter, wasnt going to work. Shes crap in the snow, and would be even worse with the lowered suspension. So again, lexy was staying and ruby was going. So had a look at a lot of other options, like selling lexy and buying something different, like an S2000 or and MX5. But again, both would be hopeless in the winter, and with only 2 seats, would only be any good if it was just me and Gayle going out. Soooo, as of today, that idea was canned! Then Gayle gave me the solution! Have the best of both worlds, the best of ruby and the best of lexy! So today we went into Honda and traded Lexy in for a stunning Civic TypeR in alabaster silver with the optional Rage alloys! Was a huge step to take, but the right one. This way, I still have the fun to drive car that ruby is, and with everything that I love about the TypeS, all the toys etc. And most importantly, one hell of a safe car to be in should the worst happen. So Lexy waves bye bye on Wednesday, and the TypeR takes her place. Ruby will be going hopefully soon after. It will save me money on insurance, road tax and mean I have all the time in the world to concentrate on the deck. She is going to be turned into the most perfect M that I can achieve, and even though shes mint just now, she is going to be a show stopper. Wont have 3 cars to tax, insure, mot and service, just 2. And those two will fit all my needs. So there ya have it guys, the reasons behind the madness! To be honest, I'm actually relieved that Gayle came to the rescue with that idea, as I have genuinely been having trouble sleeping trying to figure out what to do. Knew whatever one I sold Id regret it, for the reasons i loved that paricular one. This way, I can have the best of all worlds. Safe, fast, fun and all mod cons! So as Im at a different place in my life now, I can lock all the happy memories with Ruby and Dawn, and with Ruby and Gayle, in a wee box and keep them there forewver. My lifes on a new chapter now, and time for new memories to be made. So Gayle and me will be having lots of fun with the TypeR, and making new memories to look back on.

  19. Yes I kid you not, I've been off the radar for a while but I'm back to introduce to you my new weekend toy, Steve! A few quick details/spec for you: 1999 123k miles (added a few miles already though!) RB25DET - Standard (Supposed to be 280bhp) Fresh import, landed in the UK December 2016 Turbo back 3" Fujitsubo exhaust HKS dumpvalve Blitz turbo timer Rays alloys Tape deck! I can't believe how comfortable the car is and I think it's pretty quiet while you're inside too! Love how it sounds too! I'm just glad it's not the everyday car because it gulps VPower for s**ts and giggles!

  20. Been a while since I have updated the thread, only done a few small changes. After fitting the extended wheel studs I bought some hubcentric spacers to pull the wheels out. Dont have any other pics yet but you can see the wheels are sat flush with the arches now. Also replaced the grill bezel with a carbon dipped one. Had the windows retinted and got a set of climair wind deflectors which are so much better than team hekos. I will upload some more pics later today.

  28. Projector headlights and USDM mods fitted today! Massive thanks to @Chandler for the USDM kit, @dinochips for the projectors and @philgor for the advice on the HID kit! First off a quick action shot! Now for the photos of the job! Don't worry, the bumper is sat on a bit of carpet! Sidelight. Dipped headlight. All fitted, battery went flat though whilst testing, gave me a bloody heart attack when I saw the lights flicker and go out though! All reassembled! Some whoring shots! Look what else has come today!! Right lengths too by the looks of it!

Starting with the plastic bit bellow the windscreen. I decided to pull off the matt faded black version and replace it with one I had sprayed in 2 packed black. old version: new version: small mod but nice Next mod is my side skirts, Thanks to my good friend Adam RHD i got another set of vti skirts which I wanted to spray body colour to test the look. out with the old in with the new. car looks like this now and the last simple mod is. the classic JDM rear light mod which i love and from that japfest happened and it was awsomeeeeeee!! so i will end this update with a nice photo of my M from the day.

  30. Had a turbo mr2 last time. Was very quick, but a lot of hassle. Had a lot of things go wrong with it. But I'm going for probs a very clean 99 n/a one and then the turbos just bolt on to them so do that. And make sure everything's done right. When I get it il stick it up on the forum. Never leave this forum, you guys are just to nice

  33. We have spoke to the rest of the team and we can clarify that Both Huberts Cars can be entered legitimately.. The ruling is only one Car Can Be Entered Per Member. But If a Member owns 2 M's or more they can all be entered by different people.. And if (for this example) huberts car wins that car can not be entered again that year but his other car/cars may be entered again.. We think this is fair as the main intention is to have a different M winning each month not a different member Thanks Guys: The Team....

  41. Thanks for the nice comments mate, Dawn would be pleased! As Mr Brown said, the price Dawn paid to get this done professionally would make most peoples eyes water! lol But she always knew she would never sell the car, so it wasn't an issue. All I can say is that the price is over £1600, but every car is different, depending on what you want. Dawns was the first aerodeck the company has ever done, and the only civic m they've had that had the colour combination that Dawn decided on. Most go for the inner bits of the seat in colour, or the wee side bits like an mgzs, but dawn wanted to be different so got the outer sections done in colour. Give Transcal UK a call mate and see what they can do for you, really nice friendly staff and very helpful. Even got a designer there to help you out too. Mentions Dawns deck so they know the exact Honda Civic you have (I'm sure they'll remember Dawn, she had them in stitches when she visited! (just realized the pun there!! lol)
