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
Thats major progress mate. Used to love prepping cars for paint, but think im maybe too old for that now. Mind you, seeing this makes me want to just do the front end respray on DD myself. Nice work so far mate
I take it it was bought by someone to strip for the engine etc? Always remember Simons first aerodecks when you two came up for our first ever Civic5 meet. First vtis aerodeck I'd ever seen! And your blue one was the lowest I'd ever seen! Lol good times mate
Looks even more amazing each time you post up new pics mate. Totally agree on those fog lights, they are so much nice than the smaller standard ones, (and also uber rare! Please don't crash! lol) Amazing work on this one, and loving the refurbed trailer as well.
