  1. Yeah it's a shame that wintertime is coming, but it does feel really nice! Have been getting a bunch of positive reactions :) the roof is from a Renault Twingo, usually people with older cars go for the canvas roof, but some where sold with an electric glass one. I chose the latter for a more modern, sophisticated look.
  2. The taillights have been in hold for a while, it's something I've got stuck on and is maybe a little bit above my knowledge and mastery. Also having to reorder parts and such is just kind of a pain. I'll finish them some day though. In the meantime I did something wild: I fitted a panoramic glass sun roof! AND IT'S THE TITS. It's been a long time since I've been this excited over a mod and it's a refreshing feeling. It fits great, works great and it passed the leak test. So far all that is left to do is tidy up the roofliner a little more and make a little cover for the motor that drives the glass panel back and forth. The process itself was surprisingly easy, it just takes some balls and faith haha. Super stoked with this, I can't wait for next summer ;)
  3. Hey all, been a while! Since I'm quite busy with work and prepping for vacation I figured, why not stress myself out some more, I had been wanting to do this for a loooong time, suddenly, the idea just popped back into my head and I said f*ck it, let's try! I started by sketching up what i had in mind: Usually it takes me a little longer to figure things out but this time I just put on my dancing shoes and sent it. Got straight to cutting up one of the spare tails I had lying around that were collecting dust for years now I started with making cardboard templates for the translucent plastic I was going to use, make sure it all fits. I did change the layout from the original idea a little bit. Bought some regular "bright" LED's, figured i'd string them up in series and power them with 12 volts, (each LED uses about 2 volts, so having six of them evens the voltage out nicely.) The next challenge was getting the "glow" I had in mind. I made this testing base from cardboard and stuck the LED's in, then I made a little reflector plate from a piece of spraycan (ghetto as hell, i know. But it's spraycan, not spraycannot!) Also sanding down the LED's made them give off a more diffuse light. I later sanded down all of them, you'll see why. Okay so now the electronics were partially figured out, and I had a good idea of what I wanted to do. Time to get hacky. Cut away the material where the reflector used to sit. Don't need that! Cut out some translucent plastic and started bending it with some heat. (It's alot harder than it initially sounds, getting the right shape without the plastic warping all over the place is quite difficult. Here I noticed that sanding the LED's down and using the reflector plate created the desired glow. Sanded them all down. Almost there! I really want a nice, even spread of light. This will be achieved by moving the LED's further back into the housing. This is the main thing right now, these leds are not bright enough. I want to use this strip as a brakelight as well, so the idea is to undervolt the LED's when lit normally, and when pressing the brake pedal we will have the LED's at their normal working voltage to increase brightness. I will be using brighter LED's for this, still scavenging the internet for something a little more beefy. Of course sacrifices had to be made in the name science. Poor fella's... Put some rubber material around the metal reflector plate, this will avoid short circuits. More sacrifices... made a new one! This one fit even better! Now, let's focus on the blinkers: Cut the shape once more, since I had warped the other one I was a bit more careful (these take so incredibly long to get right with all the cutting, bending, filing and sanding) Finally managed to get it into a good shape. This was the progress after about 2 days, i have some more ideas that I don't have pictures of yet, but I'll show you all soon!
  4. always good seeing your ride @koen_valk! thanks for coming that day, hope we can do a meet again sometime soon ;)
  5. I'll try and get some new people over here! Marvin, a buddy of mine already joined :) @TheRedAerodeck
  6. 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 :)
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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 ;)
  10. 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.
  11. 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 :)
  12. They use inlays, basically they cut smaller pieces of vinyl and wrap those in the more cramped corners and such.
  13. 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!
  14. 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 :)
