  1. always good seeing your ride @koen_valk! thanks for coming that day, hope we can do a meet again sometime soon ;)
  2. I'll try and get some new people over here! Marvin, a buddy of mine already joined :) @TheRedAerodeck
  3. A few months ago, me and a couple M series acquintances got more into starting a real group for M series in The Netherlands. A whatsapp chatgroup has been set up and today we had the "first" "real" meeting! Got to see some nice M's from all over the country. Enough attendance for a car that is considered a dying breed here. It's a good feeling to know that these are being cared for well :)
  4. Made a cover for the other side as well. And introduced a carbonfibre fender bit. Not really functional but it adds some variance to the car. The plan is to convert the rear spoiler to carbon fibre at some point as well, and have some more bits at the rear in CF too to keep the motive going.
  5. Finished up the piping today, wrapped the airbox in the same colour as the car. Just needs a filter now. I really like this clean look, I might try making covers like this for the other side as well to hide the PS pump and screenwash reservoir.
  6. Hello everyone, still adding details to the car here and there. I've remade the splitter and today I was fiddling with a custom airbox / heatshield. Also found some VTI skirts!! Used a sheet of bent metal and cut to size for the airbox, will probably finish tomorrow. My buds Joshua and Pascal still had some piping laying around which they were kind enough to trade for that terrible whale p***s ;)
  7. I think the whole community is waiting on someone to make molds of these parts. It could be a literal goldmine if some decides to start reproducing these.
  8. went for pictures yesterday!! there's more to check out on my instagram page, (aerokek) since Civic5 won't let my upload any pictures that are greater than 4.4 something MB, I hope you guys enjoy this picture though. wish you could all see it in the flesh, cause it looks even better up close and personal :)
  9. They use inlays, basically they cut smaller pieces of vinyl and wrap those in the more cramped corners and such.
  10. Hi, so here's the time for the big reveal! I decided to have my car wrapped in a glossy metallic blue/purple colorflip vinyl! Last week after tearing her down, I brought the car in, and the specialist got to work! a week later the car was finished and we were out to pick it up again time to put everything back together! The "I'm never going to financially recover from this." face :D then rushed the car back home to continue putting everything back there's still some stuff to do and minor issues with the wrap that have to be fixed. but overall it looks super nice and this is the exact colour I wanted to go for so yay! Im having some professional photographs taken soon, can't wait to share those with you when they are done!
  11. Had a little giggle on instagram, telling people I had discovered a massive rusthole and was dissassembling the car and parting it out. Sad story bla bla bla, Let this go for sometime.. many people were concerned but in reality, I was taking off all the parts in preparation for something BIG. Unfortunately, I can't tell you lovely forum crawlers yet, but I'm so excited to show you when it's finished! these are some of the reactions, lots of ppl cared and wanted to help out, which was very heartwarming. In reality, this is what the car looks like right now. Hopefully dropping her off next wednesday, I'm so excited :)
  12. Today I figured I'd have a go at dent removal, some dents in my door were really bothering me, and considering I want to have the car wrapped at some point, it would be nice to get all the dents out first. A friend of mine was kind enough to let me borrow his kit for a few days. Hoping to purchase my own kit soon as well cause I need to practice more. The dents arent removed completely, but there is a definite improvement! Me and a fellow MB driver here in the Netherlands have started organising our own MA, MB, MC meetings. Sadly not a lot of people could come because of other plans or car related issues. But there were some, (of course the M series arent very common in The Netherlands) a lot of people elsewhere were also interested. So we hope to see more people next time! Also, here are some pictures of the meeting we went to last night, it's nice to have this car out and about again, really enjoy all the confused faces and thumbs up ;)
  13. Now for another serious issue, I had a fairly large rust hole starting to get bigger in my left rear fender. I wanted to have this done by a professional next winter, wanting to enjoy the car this summer as much as I could. But, since I have a welding machine at my disposal, and a day off, I decided to try and do it myself! I started by cutting around the rust hole. Making sure I take everything out Once all the metal was removed, I grinded and sanded everything clean till there was no more rust to be seen. Got around to making the metal plate that fits in there. This was harder than expected since there where some complicated bends and shapes to reproduce. A few hours later i got a plate that fit almost perfectly. Just had to make some small adjustments and got to welding things together! Ground the excess welding off to make everything nice and flush The welds werent pretty, but the penetration was good and I only had one little pinhole left when I was done with welding and grinding. Sealed everything off with tectyl, managed to get on the inside of the chassis as well with some cavity wax and a tube, through a small drainage hole. It still looks a bit weird in the pictures, but a few layers of sealant later it looked quite nice, and will probably hold up for a good couple of years. Saves me 300 euros at the welder :)
  14. Recently had alignment done, she drives okay now! Quite stiff but I'm getting used to it. Roads are good here so its not too much of a hassle. Also found a new honda friend who really liked the aerodeck and wants one for himself now ;) Spoiler is on, paint is bad but it looks alright for now. Want to have it paint matched someday but first we'll need some more coin for that. Also swapped out the old angel eyes for new ones. Lots brighter now dont have any good pictures available right now but I'll make some later!
