    stevie's Mb2 hard decision to make

    So you're definitely getting rid then mate? That's a real shame. Whoever gets it will have a great looking car. You've done a lot to it over the years. On the offchance you decide to break or just sell stuff seperately I'd be interested in lip kit etc.

    Strut brace arrived & went on this week, love how this looks, think it might have improved handling ever so slightly too but can't notice much yet! Also upgraded some bulbs recently, installed the Osram Nightbraker ('Unlimited', not 'laser') headlight bulbs, and replaced standard side light bulbs with Halfords pure white 'HID effect' bulbs. Only £6 for the latter so why not. Struggled to get a good picture but the lights are much whiter now & so visibility improved.

    stevie's Mb2 hard decision to make

    It's good that you're having a long hard think about it instead of just getting rid of it. I see a lot of people making fast decisions, and a lot of people regretting it later so the two are connected! I see a few MB's & MC's around - I was going to make a thread on this to be honest, ask how many people still see & if they know the owners around their areas. I've never seen an MB6 in person though!

    Daily MB2

    Welcome! That's pretty low mileage! Looks fairly clean, and similar thinking to my own. I don't want to slam it to the ground, don't want to spend more than the car's worth on alloys, just want it to be the best it can for daily use & to look after it. Oh and snap on the colour/model by the way, these silver MB2's, common as muck

    CHEAP Civic Aerodeck

    I have Heko ones and I'm not impressed, they don't fit very well, the rear ones were falling down and passenger side front kept popping out. I've had to remove them all and fit new double-sided tape already and they haven't even been on that long. The deflectors move and tape has dried up and looks horrible all over again. Heko also sell Rover 400/45/MGZS ones, these might fit better on the front? The Heko ones are cheap though so it is a cheap mod to do! Under £30 for a set of 4. Can't complain.

    Mae's diamond *mb1*

    Wow! I didn't know there was a rear lip for the MA's to be honest until now. I quite like the style of it too. It's really cool that you found them after all this time, there must only be a few of them left.

    My Silver MB2 Thread

    Been wanting a rear ARB, Mb6 or MG I don't mind. I don't really want to go drilling holes in suspension parts unless I have to though so what is the best way to put a rear anti roll bar on?! Will I have to pay out for aftermarket ones or try finding Mb6 control arms? What bolts etc would be needed? I had hoped to have had a few more things done to post on here by now but unfortunately not! Had a chance to get some standard Mb 14" alloys a few weeks back to replace the steel wheels but didn't go ahead with it in the end. I've been spending all my time trying to figure out the fog light wiring to the original switch, I can't be bothered cutting all wires to the pre existing rear switch if I can't get the front light bit working too! Just can't work out if I only need the wire from the relay I've installed, or if I need a live/earth too.
  8. So has anybody ever fitted DRL's to a Civic M? I know they're not the most stylish or needed thing but I think on one hand it would modernise the car a bit and saves your sidelights come winter. Some basic ones seem easy to fit as well. Only questionable thing for me would be where to fit them? I've seen people put ring ones around the fog lights, seen people mount the cheap & common LED strip ones on the front lower bumper grille, but there isn't a lot of space for them really. Would be great to hear if anybody has installed them or your opinions on them!

    What body parts fit the MB?

    A BMS front lip? Not sure what that is? Yes, the Rover stuff will all fit as far as I know. All spoilers from Rover 400/45's and MG ZS including the little boot lip spoiler (Except the 'extreme' one without modifying). The Rover 45/MGZS mk1 (Hatchback) side skirts will fit, but not the later saloon ones. I think that's right? Don't think they had any compatible bumper lips of any kind. Basically for the front you have either the VTI lip or the VTIS lip, the side skirts you have the Rover/MG or VTIS ones, rear lip you have the VTIS one. I'm also looking for a rear bumper lip but there is only the really hard to get VTIS one. Can't fit those with original mud guards either. I'm going to try one of those universal rubber ones that tape on in the meantime...

    My Silver MB2 Thread

    Wonder if anybody can help - been looking into getting some new Ignition leads, so thinking of getting some red ones or sticking with black to keep the contrast against the clips I bought. Are cheap ones okay or should I be paying quite a lot? Seen sets for under £40 and not sure if that is too cheap. Is it likely to definitely help the running of the car? I've heard it smoothens everything out again. Only because sometimes at low speeds I get a bit of a judder and isn't very amooth at all.

    Nice Civic! Looks a lot like my MB2 except yours has colour matched bumper strips which I like! Looks really good. Yeah as Dave said those wheels will not fit unfortunately, I almost made same mistake once before.

    My Silver MB2 Thread

    Okay so I got the fogs installed where I want them, done the grounding for them, just the wiring left to do now. My rover 45 front/rear switch and wiring came but I've noticed it has 3 more wires coming off than the switch for just the rear. That kind of makes sense as most switches have 3 wires coming off, but I'm using a relay & wiring kit and I'm not sure where I should be attaching the wire coming from the relay onto these 3?

    My Silver MB2 Thread

    Yeah I was going to get them wired up etc and then decide how I want them. Trying to figure out if I could use something as a spacer behind the L brackets and in front of the screw threads to bring them out a bit. Here are both ways for now anyway. Second looks better but I'm not sure if they're sat too far into the bumper and you can see the inside of the surround (which I wrapped so looks bad there haha) will either leave them stuck out a bit or get something to act as a spacer and do the second way so it doesn't look as obvious.

    My Silver MB2 Thread

    Wow wish I'd seen those earlier! Was looking for some for a while, eventually got some clear ones that are same size so I've done the same as you I think. Fitted the fogs today but wasn't happy with how far they stuck through the black surround on the outer side, didn't look terrible but not perfect, tried turning the L brackets around but now it doesn't stick out far enough.. Not sure if it's better to have them sticking out a bit or not enough!

    My Silver MB2 Thread

    Thanks pal, yeah definitely! I'm surprised how just from painting the 'Honda' and adding a couple little bits it's totally changed it already really. Would it it be possible to scrub down the heat shield to a good finish or will it need spraying do you think? What size were those fogs? Seem to fit really well! Thanks for that, I've ordered some smaller L brackets now to try, only ones I've been able to find are all 4cmx4cm, 5x5 etc, can't find the actual L shaped ones anywhere. So it's making it really difficult. Need some washers too for the bolts because the ones I bought are fairly small, wanted to make sure they'd fit through everything, so just feels like I've been throwing money at this with no gain! But I've bought a switch etc from somebody now (Always get more results from Rover breakers than I do from Honda breakers it seems!) so hopefully will be able to crack on now and get fogs wired in when it stops raining!
