  1. So, been a bit down lately due to pressures/hassles at work and been a grumpy old git to say the least. Gayle reckoned what i needed was another project! I've wanted a MK1 MX5 since the day they were launched (was at the car show in Glasgow SECC when they unveiled it) and when the cover came off and I saw this sweet little red sports car I fell in love! Said there and then I have to have one of these one day, but I was a teenager back then with empty pockets! Roll on 29 years later and now I'm older (still with empty pockets, least i am after buying her!) and finally I've got one!! Always wanted a mk1, but did put deposit down on a mk2 in a garage around 7 years ago. Sadly my then wife (Dawn) became seriously ill so we cancelled going down to test it/buy it and just forgot about getting an MX5. Lost Dawn to cancer 3 years later Original plan was to buy one that needed a full restoration, but as i don't possess any welding skills that plan changed. After a lot of good advice from members in here, we upped our budget and went to view a few more cars. Most were bodged repairs and nothing like described, until we found this one in Stirling, Scotland. She's red (obviously), 1.6 UK car with 90K on the clock. 10 months MOT. There isn't a service history book, but all the old mots are there and receipts for various work done. The chap selling her didn't want to let her go, but was under instruction from his wife to buy a more family friendly classic car! She has had the rear sills done before, drivers side is a tidy enough job and solid (just the black paint that's not right), passenger side is still solid but repair is showing signs of rust. Engine wise, she's great! Engine sounds sweet, and pulls well in every gear. Suspension wise, she needs an overhall. Interior is basic but (now) clean and tidy. Hood is shot, but Gayle went straight onto ebay and found a brand new hood that the seller has had lying around for a couple of years for £120! result! She bought it, then we had another road trip to Aberdeen to go collect it. Hood is mint and getting fitted this weekend! I have noticed when at speeds of 70mph upwards, she has a horrible vibration which is coming from the front. It shakes through the car, and if at lower speeds (60mph) we go over any bumps in road, it shakes up through the steering wheel which deffo isn't right. Unfortunately during the test drive there were no roads we could get her up to anything over 30 - 40mph so this only came to light on the way home. But hopefully the work i'm planning should resolve these issues. So Plans are: Fit the new hood Replace all 4 shocks and springs Replace upper/lower wishbones (they look ok, just grubby, but I want to replace all bushes so might aswell just change the whole lot.) Replace wheels/tyres with dished BBS rims Full service including timing belt/fan belt etc. New front and rear brakes (rears have just had brand new calipers fitted) Full custom interior retrim in either full leather or half leather/alcantara Full respray, looking to go for a nice metal flake red! Will also be taking it to BorderMX5 before the paint to have both rear sills repaired professionally/correctly. Think we should be able to get through the next mot with them but not chancing it any longer than that. Engine and engine bay fully detailed. Accessories, such as chrome/stainless steel boot rack, new stereo (just replaced the one that was there for a Pioneer that I had lying around in the garage). Will be a long term project, but want to fully replace as much as we can as we go along for brand new/renovated parts. End goal is to have one very mint mk1 MX5. After cleaning her interior up to my standards, Gayle said "oh look, the suns out!" Which roughly translated means "time for a run in Mindy with the top down!" lol Got some pics when we were out. Totally love this wee car! She's not perfect, but she's ours and makes me happy! First ever convertible I've ever owned, and loving it! Don't worry though, DD isn't going anywhere! Just taking a break from her for a wee while as she needs MOT'd and a new front caliper. Plan is when I get the spraying gear all sorted out to respray the mx5 , I'll be doing DD's front end at the same time. So all's good!

  3. Hi guys, just a quick post to say we've been tidying up the forum a little so you may notice a couple of changes or three. We have removed the traders section as they were basically like a ghost town and there had been issues with one or two of them so have removed them for now. Their actual trader forums are still there, but are hidden from view for the time being. None were offering any discounts to our members or special deals so didn't see the point in them getting free advertising. We've added a new sectio to the Commerce bit (for sale and wanted) which is for any civic M cars or parts you see for sale on other sites that you think our members might be interested in. it could be your own parts or car listing on ebay or one you've found. We've also added a few forum category images that were missing so it looks a bit better. we've moved a lot of the info that was down the bottom of the forum to the side bar now, leaving the bottom of the forum free for our new latest topics feed so you can see at an instant any new topics that have been started. For the Civic5 Team, I've removed some of our sub forums from the team room as they were basically just there for legacy. The Team Room itself has been moved into the latest news section as it made more sense for it to be there rather than taking up space in its own section. Just wee changes but hopefully they'll make a difference to using the forum. I'm looking into the possibility of the home page being more like a blog page, kinda more like FB layout. Not sure how that will look, if its pants it won't be implimented! Would like to hear any suggestions members have on ways they think would make civic5 better, so just post in here and let us hear what you think. Dave
  4. Hi guys After viewing the number of entries and interest the competition has been getting the past 2 months (down to 1 car entered in the last one) we are unfortunately suspending the COTM competition of Civic5 until further notice. Maybe if things pick up again in the forum it will be back but until then we don't have enough interest in it. Thank you to all members who took part in the competitions we did have, from entering a car (even your own) to posting in the comp and voting. You are what keeps this site and club going. And congrats to all members whose civics won! Some of the very best civic M's in the world. Keep working on those cars guys and keeping them looking stunning, and please keep sharing your pride and joy (or even just daily runner) with us. Dave
  5. Right, as we've spent the past few weeks moving house and settling in, I've not had time to get May's comp up and running! So, here it is....Civic5 COTM May 2020. Going to run this for only a few days then go to voting so we can catch up again. Get Voting folks, poll closes Sunday at 10pm! UPDATE: And our winner is Chief and their stunning aerodeck.
  6. Time for this months competition. Enter the civic you want to see win COTM. It can be any members civic or even your own, all are welcome! Remember to add a photo of the car, and a link to its topic/project thread in members cars. Lets see them folks!!
  7. I would like your wisdom, *Thought I'd put this here rather than in SOS, as this is more like a discussion and sharing of experiences* So for context, got my MB2 1.4 around this time last year and straight away I was thinking about modding, but I decided to have patience and restricted myself and kept it all stock excluding the steering wheel and seats. It's been a trooper of a car, but now this is where the fun begins. Originally I wanted to do a K swap but then I matured and realised I was in over my head, so now the plan is to source a D16Y8 SOHC VTEC, and swap that in, then turbo it. I currently have a D14A8 SOHC non-VTEC. So I just want to get input of the good people who know a lot more than me: - I'm assuming since I'm swapping in another SOHC D series engine, it should be pretty straight forward, however I still have questions such as what other components can I keep and what else I would need to replace (such as the ECU). - If anyone is adept with turbo-ing d series I would love to know what kits are good (I know ebay ones have gotten better but you can tell me if any are worth it), or if you put together your own kit then what the shopping list was. Also I would more than welcome suggestions of trusted professionals who can help without ripping me off (I am based in Chatham, Kent) - And if you have a d series turbo build I would love to hear about the power gains, reliability and cost (time and money). D16Y8 is approx 125hp, and with a turbo I would aim to get this to 210 - 230hp, please let me know if this is reasonable or crazy and what would be more realistic to expect from a daily driver turbo build. I'm also aware that (when turbo-ing) that I would need to upgrade the intake and exhaust too and would welcome recommendations. And if you want more topics to dive into, I would appreciate suggestions of good upgrades to my brakes for the power I want to make, and let me know if I would only need to upgrade components such as the pads or if it would be necessary to upgrade the whole thing. Overall I just want to find the most cost effecitve way to make my car more fun and also reliable, can't wait to hear your guys' experiences You are all much appreciated.
  8. Was just reading this on top gear. Think that this sort of product is going to be more common. https://www.topgear.com/car-news/electric/what-would-you-do-107bhp-crate-electric-motor I bet ecu modification suddenly becomes more complicated though... Especially if you want a motor for each rear wheel
  9. So, looking to get new tyres for DD. What width of tyres are folks running on your lowered/standard height Civic M's? Know the widest standard size (for VTi/VTiS) is 195, but just wondering if we can go wider without any issues? Thinking 205's should be ok on DD's 16" wheels as plenty of room in arches with her being back on standard suspension.
  10. Here we go again, time to put forward your entries for this months competition. Remember folks, it can be another members civic or even your own! Lets see what civic M you think should win!

    Interesting read

    This popped up in my news feed this morning - thought it was worth a share. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/magazine/the-concept-of-the-sustainable-classic/
  12. MeisterR Zeta Pro for the civic mb/mc. They haven't done many miles tbh as DD spent most of the time just doing meets/shows but is now in daily use hence reverting back to oem.So these have only done around 4000 miles. Still have the original box they came in, original spec sheet/instructions and the C spanners for adjusting them.These are one of the very few suspensions designed specifically for the Civic MB/MC's More photos. The paint has come off the two front springs but doesn't affect performance. Checked all the adjuster rings and all moving freely. Oh and the masking tape is there as I asked our garage to mark them as they took them off so I'd know what goes where (offside front etc) Have checked and the adjustment rings are free so can be wound down in height/up to what ever you require.These are a great bit of kit and give nice handling/sharp turn in, along with a wide range of adjustments including 32 point soft/hard setting with a button at the top of each damper. Looking for £350 (these were over £600 new and that was at a sale/group buy price) Let me know if you're interested folks (SOLD TO Member SataNeAtChEeSe)

    Lock down

    So, how's everyone getting on with the new way of life? Personally I'm working from home, but then have been most of the time anyway for about 6 months so no big change there. Will be interesting when the 'home school' starts next week though. Hope that everyone's well and keeping in touch with the world however they can

    Advice needed
