  • About me
    Hi, I'm Dave, the founder and owner of Civic5.com. I have been into cars my whole life, spending time restoring classic 70's fords then moving into the Honda scene. Have now been a fan of Honda's for years.

    So, bit more about me. I'm an old git, and was with Dawn (aka Civic5 Moderator crazzzydawn in the forum) for 21 years, married to her for 17 of those years. She helped me set up and run the club and site from the start, and it was Dawn that got me into Honda's! Sadly, she passed away after a very brave fight with cancer (Jan 2013) and is very much missed by myself and a lot of the members here. Her spirit in the club lives on in her car, her beloved Civic Aerodeck ES known as "DD" in the forum (Dawns Deck). It's a car that's been tastefully modded, and one I will keep for ever.

    Recently, I met my new partner Gayle (aka Gayle in the forum) and she has been amazing! She's totally turned my life around, and makes me happy. Luckily, she's a petrol head too! She's also become a big part of Civic5, and loves the Honda scene now too! We got married in June 2017.
    Anyways, enough about me! Thanks for taking the time to read my profile, and welcome to Civic5

  2. Matt has another M

    Yeah, me too! Jim, Paul and me had planned to go in Roxy before Jim became I'll, but after seeing some of the loonies crashing I didn't fancy taking Roxy! Might buy an old chuck away car to do it in, like and old BMW 3series.

    Superb mate! Will add it into the word doc. Still a work in progress as been busy with work and now have hospital to contend with. Will get it done asap though and get it uploaded to the forum
  5. Burbleboy's Accord

    Hmm, I did look at BMW's but after the probs I'm having have filled them out. Too many design flaws both mechanically and electrical mate. Love that accord mate, nicest one I've seen!

  10. How to remove exterior door handles

    Door card must come off mate. From memory, think there is one screw holds them on. Remove that then slide the handle (it kinda slides into a bit at one end I think). You'll need to disconnect the rods from it too.
  11. b18c4 turbo build

    There's been a few turbo'd B18's here mate. Not sure if the members are still here though as a lot have sold up but check the project threads. Rich (civicturbo) who was a moderator here did an epic build, although his was a B20. There were a few others too.
  12. Forum update completed without any issues. As always though please let us know if anything isn't working.
  13. Mae's diamond *mb1*

    Yeah, miss my typeS, dont miss the typeR as much though. Had a look at few lately but they seem to be holding their money really well just now.
