    Honestly can't remember now.there off the shelf for eg and ek. Doubt it for m's. Will probably be best getting some made or making them yourself.

    Thanks dude. Yeah can't wait to get back out in it. Was really looking forward to cruising in an M again. But just been a Drive ornament since I bought it.

    Civic MB6 remote key locker.

    If the central locking works off the key. Buy a universal kit like hawk kit cheap and woks much better than the normal fob anyway

    No mate you want to find specific ones for your car. Eg ones have rod type on the front and mg style on the rear usually. M's usually have the ball jointed type.

    Made a start tarting the bay up today. Not doing the bulkhead. So busy back there and paints not bad tbh. So masked out everything and prepped and primed.

    Was worried to take the skirts off knowing what the back of the sills looks like on most mbs. But was pleasantly surprised.

    Yes bit of a bummer tbh. Hope I've done a good job of engine. First ever build. Should be Interesting. Assuming it's happy and healthy. Will be a nice car with plenty of grunt.

    I stripped the engine and it quickly became apparent that red cam cover had been shot blasted and blast media had made it into the engine. Once I'd got the crank out it was obvious the main crank bearings were scored and a real mess tbh. It is also possible the bearings were too tight aswell. 0.25 oversized but apparently the mains had not been ground. So who knows. Whatever the case. It needs a new crank. Basically everything is toast. I managed to get as new crank in good condition and started collecting bits. As much genuine Honda parts as possible. Head gasket. Head studs. All new seals, oil pump etc. Since the car was destined to have a turbo on it. I figured while it's in bits may aswell build it. So purchased a set of eagle con rods and CP forged pistons. The head has bee refreshed. Dual valve springs, new stem seals pressure tested and skimmed. Block has had the cylinders refreshed and check for the new pistons. And been decked and cleaned. The engine is now ready for installation but I want to do some work in the engine bay when I get chance. I have been collecting parts for the turbo setup aswell. Should be a gooden. BWR ramhorn manifold. Tial 44mm wastegate. JBE 6370 turbo.

    Progress is a little slow tbh. Doing a house up and working etc at same time. But renewed lots of little bits and bobs. Headlight washer, Spoiler, Door seals, side repeaters, stripped and cleaned the whole interior and refinished the headliner in black suede. Refurbed the seats and fitted a momo black magic wheel. Engine pulled for inspection as well.

    Got a bit of time so thaught I'd start another project thread document my progress with my latest honda. My last civic ended up quite a machine. But unfortunately I had to make the decision to let it go to buy a house. Once got my finances back on track. I really fancied another mb6 as always had a soft spot for them. A another member offered me a clean car so went on a bit of a road trip down south to pick it up. It has just had an engine rebuild fully documented with every receipt and ran sweet as a nut was very happy with it. Unfortunately it only made it 100 miles back towards the Midlands and the bottom end developed a knock. Was pretty p**sed off tbh. But what can I do.
