    Do you mean on the rear screen? Not sure I've seen one fitted either. You'd have to check measurements etc, but can't see why you couldn't. If anyone has looked into it, @Craigblight86 would be the man - any clues Craig?
  3. That's a lovely looking deck mate... Mean looking.
  4. Just to show this, was just looking for some new bungs for my spare wheel well as a couple of mine have gone a bit gummy... https://www.parts-honda.uk/honda-cars/assignment_spare_parts/82871671000 £4.52 ex VAT from honda https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-BNP4028 60p ex VAT for rover.. Quite a difference if you're buying the 10 that honda has as the default number for replacing them all!
  5. Yeah, plastic.. I'll have a spy, but it fell from right where the caliper was. Weird.
  6. Really nice colour is that. Got it sorted.
  7. Been a while since any updates, but not much to report really.. Mostly had a summer of enjoying the deck (apart from a few weeks touring Scotland in the accord). Yesterday I noticed that one of my rear calipers had started sticking a bit, so had a bit of an investigate. The piston looks immaculate and wound in and out easily, slider pins also look fine.. Regreased them as they seemed a bit gritty, but look spot on. Handbrake doesn't seem to be sticky, and moves the piston in and out okay. The pads had welded themselves to the caliper a bit, and one of them needed some filling in the edges to remove some rust build up and let them move freely in the shim thing, but other than that, couldn't see anything wrong. Still is binding a bit, not as bad, but not properly free... Anyone got any ideas? When I had her jacked up I had a spy underneath, and apart from being a bit dirty, still looks nice underneath. Also, this fell down when I was persuading the caliper off.. No idea where it came from, can't see one on the other side, and can't see where it would go or what it would do? It looks like it slides in a slot, and a bolt or something goes through it at right angles
  8. Hi, I'd have thought they'd go straight on? @Dave did you have these on Ruby?
  9. I'm guessing that's your own work again? Looks nice mate
  10. Good stuff! Love them, and glad you got them safe. I bought some a few years back and one of them had snapped when it arrived... Gutted. Got sorted out okay, but a real shame that it was a set that doesn't exist anymore.
  11. Yeah, definitely. I used quite a lot of random zs/400 fixings and clips etc when mine was getting rebuilt.. Some parts were a gamble that didn't pay off though - the fuel level sender was too long for the tank on my aerodeck. I reckon in future we'll be relying on rover parts (or pattern parts for rovers) more and more to keep these hondas going as there seems to be a good level of support for older British cars, and the M civics aren't covered as well as more international civics.
  12. Wowsers.. Been having a proper rest up! Nice spot for a rest though.. Got some garage envy there mate
  13. You've been busy there mate.. Nice one. Looks clean the bit you've done. I bet that's put your mind at rest to know it's just surface rust. Hope you finally get the abs sorted though.. That's been a pain ey. Those wheel nuts do look better with the standard wheels.
  14. I'm thinking of going for the b6 with my eibach springs... The oem spec shocks aren't very good with them.. I think it's the opposite problem you have in that the standard shocks are too compressed with the eibach springs.
  15. Looks like a nice smart deck does that. I've got the MG skirts on mine as well, really like the look of them now.
  16. Wow, what a lot of work, and what a read. Really like what you've done with the old girl. Nice job with the interior as well.. The wheel retrim looks spot on. Can't believe you made a DIY vtec addon for the ecu... That's mad!
