  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 Folks! We are currently holding a competition over on Future Classic Cars which we invite all our Civic5 members to enter. The prize on offer is a Sornu Qualcomm 3.0 Bluetooth FM transmitter MP3 player. This device allows you to use your current car stereo to play MP3 files. It has 2 USB ports for charging, and a slot for memory cards so you can store all your music on a memory card and play it through your car stereo. Much better than having CD's/tapes rattling around in your car! Depending on the size of card, you could have your entire music collection in your car and available at the touch of a button. It also features Bluetooth for handsfree use of your phone, and a clear 1.44 inch LED display. Just the thing if you prefer to keep your modern classic cars OEM radio or if the one you have fitted doesn't play mp3's/usb and doesn't have Bluetooth. The competition runs like this. The first 30 members that join and post in the Future Classic Cars forum will be automatically entered into the competition. The winner will be drawn from those first 30 members to join! Simples, no questions to answer etc, just join and then get posting about your car! Head on over to the site now and create your account (only takes a few mins) then let us see your car. Already registered your account? Cool, all you need to do is get posing in the forum! Free prize for posting in the forum.......sounds good to us! The winner will be drawn at random when we hit or pass 30 members. Keep visiting the forum for updates on when the draw will take place. We will also be posting this on our Facebook page. If you know freinds or family that have a modern classic car, tell them to head over to the FCC forum and sign up! We want to see lots of Modern classics, the more the merrier! See you at https://futureclassiccars.uk Dave

    Alloy speedline 15 4x114.3

    Hello, I search a set of alloy speedline 15 4x114.3 for civic in option
  6. So, going for full MTEC brake change and fitting some HEL braided lines at the same time. Just gone to take the first front brake hose off. All gone smoothly, drained hose, all disconnected, removed the sliding metal clip for the top fixing where the hose connects to the brake line. AAAnnnndddd.......... What the chuff is still holding this onto the bracket? Ive unscrewed the brake line nut, removed clip on top, can't anything else that should come off or move, is it just the power of 20 years worth of corrosion holding it on? should it pull down through the little bracket? or it it part of the bracket?

    You can help us!

    Hi folks! As you all know, we have opened a brand new sister site to Civic5 for modern classic cars. We really want the new site to do well and become big, but things have been slow so far. You can help by letting your friends/family know about our new club and ask them to pay us a visit and joining the new club. If you're on other forums/groups, let people there know too. Spread the word (and our web address! https://www.futureclassiccars.uk) on facebook and other social media sites you're on. The more the merrier! The club welcomes all makes of cars from the 80's onwards, so we hope to make it as big as possible. The potential for really big meets is there as is the potential for show stands. Lets make the new club a success, and a place for our civics in the future. Thanks in advance! Dave
  8. Hi all We have decided to suspend our Car of the Month competitions for now due to lack of interest/entries. If you would like to see it opened again, post your thoughts here.

    Vti-s/vti front lip

    Hey everyone! So im new to this forum stuff and its my first civic so please be patient if i ask newbie questions lol So i have the 1.5 petrol and have got everything ive wanted except for the front lip. It seems impossible to find even a replica. Does anyone know were i can get hold of a vtis lip to fit my mb2? Ideally one that includes delivery? Ive seen some mb6 breakers on gumtree but its collection only and these guys are over 200 miles away from me - not worth it! Seen another on gumtree but its £120 just for a front lip which i think is way too much. Any help where i can get one? Thanks!
  10. Noticed recently that members who have posted images that are hosted on photobucket now have a generic image from photobucket inserted where their own image was (like photos of cars in members project threads have been replaced with an image stating " upgrade to third party hosting"). ive been onto my own photobucket and have used the normal link for posting images in forums and it displays fine? I gather they have changed the format of the links slightly so that previously posted images now dont display? Can you take 5 mins to check photos youve posted from photobucket and if you see the "upgrade to 3rd party" image instead of your own image, try copying your images link (the one for forums) and posting it again to see if it works?

  16. Resurrection of a previous thread that was lost in the move of the forum platform. As you might have guessed, I'm even more into my bikes than cars! So...show us your Bikes!
  17. So, decided to finally sell the Civic TypeR FN2 (Roxy) for something a lot cheaper to run as my daily driver. Enter Carly, my 2008 Mini Cooper! She's only had 2 owners from new (same as Roxy), full history, Lower mileage than Roxy and decent spec compared to some Coopers we've looked at. Also got a cracking deal with the garage which saw me getting the car plus cash for trading in the FN2 which was a bonus! The colour looks like a champange metallic, but is actually called "sparkling silver", which we've found out is quite a rare colour on the Coopers, so that's a bonus!. The cars been really well looked after by previous owner and is immaculate bar one wee tiny mark on the front bumper (and knowing my ocd, that'll be a new front bumper she's getting then! lol). Plans are new alloys same as DD's, spotlights, Cooper stripes in black, tint the rear windows, and some interior upgrades. Cracking wee car to drive, really handles sweet! And still quick enough for me to have fun with, but also excellent mpg and cheap tax compared to the FN2. Anyways, here she is...

    Steering rack advice

    Hi people I am removing my power steering on my vtis that I use for track days. The car never gets used on the road so I don't have to worry about parking it with heavy steering. I removed the belt to see how it felt and I don't find it to bad so next is to remove it completely. I was going to remove the rack to open it up and do the depower mod but though while it's off I might aswell put a different one on that is quicker lock to lock, as the turn in isn't that great so a shorter ratio rack that's been depowered would hopefully be a big improvement. There is lots of info out there but no one seems to know for sure and some info contradicts what others have said. So as this is the home of mb6 experts I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on what would be a good replacement rack that is a straight swap.
  19. So, was thinking today just how long Civic5 has been around (kept thinking it was around 7 years). April 2018 was Civic5's 10th birthday! Can't believe we've been online 10years now, quite an achievement for a one make/one model car forum and club! We've seen quite a lot of big Honda forums and other car forums disappear in that time so makes it even more special that as a small club we're still here! It's a testiment to the dedicated team we've had through the years (some gone,some still here) and to the current team we have now and the work and time they put into this club. It's also due to the excellent members we have here, which is more like an extended family than a car enthusiasts club. Obviously the forum isn't quite as busy as it was in its hey-day but the fact we're still going, still getting new members joining regularly and still getting people saying how useful and friendly they find our wee forum and club makes it feel special. So we hope you all wish Civic5 a very happy birthday!

    about time I got some pic's taken
  23. Hi guys. Thought we'd better post up in here as we're nearing completion of a brand new club and website. We've been working away for the past month or so buying all the forum software for the new site and getting it all installed and set up to how we want it, although the team have been in discussions over the possibility of a new club for a lot longer. So, what is the new site? In a nutshell, it's for modern classic cars made from the 90's onwards (although late 80's cars are also welcome). Cars that are rapidly disappearing from our roads that need a site/owners club so that they can keep going to gain classic status. It will cater for all marques, so going to be a really good variety of cars. From MX5's to Focus ST's and everything else in between, there'll be something for everybody. From standard cars to modified, all are welcome. And the whole site is more database driven, so it looks a lot different to what we have here on civic5. This means instead of members starting a thread in members cars, you get your own page for your car! And as our civics are now getting a lot older, and with fewer and fewer left on the roads, they are deffo welcome! We have reviews on cars we think are either already at modern classic status or are on the way to it, what to buy and what to look out for. We'll also be getting a lot of sponsors (trader) on board so members can save money on parts/services etc. Hope to see you all there when it opens (planned for next weekend all going well) so either Saturday 17th/Sunday 18th March. We'll keep you updated on the opening. If you want a sneaky peek, click the logo below! Dave
