  1. Greetings everyone. It's been a long time since I've posted anything on here civic5 related. Been a member on here since 2013 when I got my last Aerodeck before a tour in Afghanistan. I used to have that weird one off 2.0 Turbo Diesel Aerodeck back in the day. It was fun but dealing with Rover parts wasn't at all. Ever since I came back to America I the itch for another Aerodeck. There are plenty out there, but I wanted one in the Orleans Blue Pearl color, specifically the 1.8 VT-i version of the Aerodeck. I looked and looked and finally found one, but with one catch: the floorboards were totally rust-rotted out in multiple places. So, after I gave up on that idea, this 98 MB3 Aerodeck popped up. With the help of my wife we set up a meeting with the seller to seal the deal. 1998 Honda Civic Aerodeck MB3 1.5 VTEC, D15Z8 SOHC Orleans Blue Pearl 294,684 km on the vehicle and still drives smooth, but this thing was slammed to the ground. Picked it up on my last trip to Germany and now it’s parked at the in-laws waiting for the 25-year rule to ship it to the States. I got some nice plans for this car when it gets stateside. I hope the importing process isn’t a pain in the butt though.
  2. Hey guys, this is my aerodeck so far, I have some plans for the interior next month, so I'll keep you guys posted
  3. Hi. Been told by Dave to get some pics of my car up so here it is. [attachment=2]1Dawns Civic Aerodeck site.JPG[/attachment] [attachment=1]2Dawns Civic Aerodeck site.JPG[/attachment] And an arty one! [attachment=0]Dawns Civic Aerodeck.jpg[/attachment] It's a 1.6ES, so it has full leather interior, A/C, etc. I'm only the 2nd owner, so everythings as it should be! I put it into Honda to have the proper Honda front fog lights fitted, the Honda sunroof wind deflector and got an MP3 stereo too. Just wanting to change the wheels now. Love my aero to bits
  4. Well since this is for sure the place to be with its fountain of priceless knowledge, really great members and i plan on never getting rid of this super cool wagon ive decided to start one of these So picked up this its a 2000 d14w4 es spec auto on 125k one company car for first 3 years, two elderly owners 17 years then a younger chap just over a year. The car came with receipts for everything and i mean everything down to windscreen wipers. The car came to me with optional extras like speedline alloys, larger fogs. Also came with a few wee trick bits like a vtis front valance, proline coilovers and a ep3 steering wheel (which everone says dont fit but previous owner said it went straight on even the wiring just plugged straight in ) So far ive done a few wee bits and bobs First up i purchased big daves double din console and took the plunge to cut out quite a bit behind the factory set up lol Tidied up the front grill with a wee paint using a satin surround and a gloss badge Had the timing belt and water pump replaced Done a couple small repairs of my own replacing a abs sensor and stripping dow the drivers door mechanism as it wsnt working. Turns out a pivot point hd sheared so drilled and tapped it to just a bolt then it stripped off 6 teeth ....... did i say i can be tight and a bit mguver lol so they were ground flat and drilled and tapped to take m3 bolts which were then dremeled down to reshape as teeth Fixed is fixed and if it works it aint stupid i believe the expressions are, if you hadnt guessed im a scot so can be very tight with money Current diy job is improving the grubby sagging headliner (bear in mind i said im tight and improving not fixing as that would imply i was doing a good job lol) So come this point if you havent fell asleep or gave up reading my drivel well done and thank you, heres some pics to make it worth while
  5. Hi all, Figured as every query I've typed in to google has brought me to this site that I might as well sign up and try contribute something at least! Picked up a VTi-S Aerodeck about a fortnight ago as a new daily and haven't stopped grinning since. Needs a tiny bit of tidying here and there, but it's all largely cosmetic - one of the former owners loved a carwash by the look of the swirls in the paint, the rear door cards are wilting a touch, minor cig burn in the passenger seat, slight nik in the rear bumper, oh and a child appears to have drawn (in permanent ink) on the b-pillar, roof liner and c-pillar but other than those niggles it's all straight enough. Sub 100k (just...), FSH, comprehensive folder of receipts, clean history and to top it off a bit of a bargain price. Think from my rough workings, it's averaging 31mpg - which is about 10mpg better than the last estate I ran, so that's another bonus too! The last owner of this was an MOT tester for Honda, so mechanically it feels tighter than newer cars I've driven as he put a lot of time, parts and love in to it! Haven't got round to doing much other than putting fuel in it and commuting so far, but I have restored the headlights (small, relatively cheap fix at least!) and I have created a healthy excel spreadsheet to work through of both jobs and parts I want for it. Car's largely standard, save for a rather mute aftermarket cat back exhaust and some generic ebay adjustable coil spring kit. Rides, rather surprisingly, exceptionally well on them. Genuinely staggered by how comfy it is...was half expecting to have binned them already, but apart from the concrete sections of the M25 its soaking up most surfaces very well. That said, combined with the Nankang tyres, I haven't dared wind it on at any point save for a straight line, but the sound gets me every time. Mid-90s BTCC soundtrack in an estate, what's not to love? But anyway, some pics: And a quick one of what was originally my daily, but it was another car I dropped lucky on and is far too mint to be using every day - hence the need for another. That, and it's getting increasingly hard to shoe-horn a growing Labradoodle in the back of one of these; Will try update this as I add/ do stuff to the Civic, but I need to move some cars on first before starting to spend more on this...otherwise I think the other half will, perhaps rightly, murder me! Cheers, John
  6. After getting bitten by the Honda bug and owning 4 hatches of various generations, I went away from Hondas for a few years but found myself constantly looking for another one. Managed to get my hands on this VTi Aerodeck, had just 77k on it when I bought it and was too good to miss
  7. Just purchased a k20 aerodeck, when you start it from cold you have to prime the fuel pump twice as its still got the standard pump in. So when you key on, it doesn't prime the fuel enough so means it cranks over for longer, but if your key in and off twice, then it builds enough. Am I right in thinking king if I fit a walbro 255 pump then it'll be able to prime enough on the first key? As its a bigger, more power pump Thanks in advance
  8. Hi everyone. I've been lurking here for a couple of years now, had a tired MB3 as my introduction to the 5th gen civics, even for a s**tbox i loved it. So here I am 2 years later with an mc1 aerodeck daily drive and i've just recently bagged a MB9 Aerodeck which i'm going to clean up and possibly engine swap down the line. Heres the old beast the day i got it home. (and yes thats the old mb3 to the left, now a generous organ donor!) I paid £300 in the end. I viewed it late one evening so couldnt get a good look underneath but after poking around the next morning i could only find one tiny spot of rust under the drivers footwell. All the sills and wheel arches are somehow spotless! Really cuffed wit that so on with the first job... The drivers door had been bent round knackering it, plus the hinges and wing panel, i've got my old mb3 as a donor car so swapping them out was a must before the winter weather leaks into the interior. Aligning the door to fit smoothly was a pain and its not quite perfect yet but it at least shuts and seals out the rain better than before. I have a cleaned up dent free wing to go on too. --- I wasn't sure where to go from here, with the weather changing I thought getting the suspension and brakes stripped made most sense as i can clean up and refurb them indoors! After a good clean and sand I gave everything a few coats of 'Buzzweld Rust Encapsulator' I've been using it for a few years on the underside of my vehicles, it's great stuff and seems to keep the rot at bay, highly recommend them for paint. Waiting on black topcoat to arrive. --- Eventually suspension will go back on with new wheel bearings, ball joints, upper control arms and new hardware. The bushes all look ok to leave for now. With regards to coilovers, is anyone running the cheapo £300 ebay specials? Are they awful? I've got 2nd hand MG shocks on my daily, made such a difference to the ride I might just look out for another set for this build. --- That's it for now, more to come after payday!
  9. I'm after a set of projector lense headlights for an mc2 if anyone is selling? Thanks
  10. Does anybody know if you can fit the mg zs 180 rear arb to civic mc1 (non VTI aerodeck)? i woud have thoughtso, but id noticed that they dont come with the rear subframe brace or front strut brace, and the mounting points arent there to even fit one?
  11. I am just after some pictures of a rear arb set up or a link to one so I know what to look for when I get round to doing a rear arb setup on my Aerodeck. Many thanks!
  12. As the title suggests. I am after a rear seat setup that will allow me to run a 3 point centre seat belt. I am after something in fare condition and not too expensive. Not fussed on colour or trim but I do need all parts relating to the seats and the seat belt itself. If you can supply pictures that would be grand. Thank You.
  13. What is the your favourite mod that you've done to your Civic? Lets see your mods, post a photo of the mod too!
  14. 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)
  15. Hey all i know this isnt the good one but would this be all i would need to put an arb on my aerodeck ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-200-400-Coupe-Cabriolet-Tourer-45-MG-ZS-16mm-Rear-Anti-Roll-Bar-RGB100490-/234199683204?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  16. Bit of a strange one but does anyone have a old standard back box for a aerodeck going spare ? Looking for the pipe from the middle section join to where it meets the box
  17. Mines has always been broken so just seeing if anyone has one lying around
  18. Looking for one of the hardest things to find for a deck lol almost funny to even ask it seems but looking for one should anyone know if any squirreled away
  19. Ahoj from Czechia chaps! In a very near future I think I'll be in the market for the "englishman" as we call the Swindon 6th gens here, specifically the Aerodeck VTi. The car would first replace my Mitsu Eclipse as a fun car and later my daily after I've worked out the I presume numerous bugs. Hope I'm not asking too much of the old Honda but so far it seems to me as close to a weekender/daily in one car as one can get in my price range. In this first of many potential instances I turn to you for your knowledge and would like to know how much I'd be shooting myself in the foot by getting the aerodeck rather than the liftback. As for reasons, they are mostly aesthetic. Although it might and in the upcoming years probbably will come in handy to have lots of bootspace, it's not the selling point for me. What is is that the car looks more mature and also pretty stealthy apart from actually being more after my taste. For that I am willing to sacrifice some degree of performance. So far as I've gathered, the deck is a tiny bit heavier and naturally less stiff of a chasis due to it being essentialy a box on wheels without the bracing behind the backseats and more weight in the roof. Among anything that comes to mind I'd like to know whether the popular ZX suspension swap is possible with the deck allegedly having a different rear than the liftback and the MG, and the difference in parts availability both oem and aftermarket. Cheers!
  20. Hi guys, This is my MC2 VTI... more to come when I get around to finishing some internal tweaks....
  21. So my headliner was starting to resemble the interior roof of a french boudoir or something from low budget greek era movie So me being me loving a bit of a cheap work around and my wife banning me from spending more money decided to go at it as cheap as possible Im sure it was less than £10 work of top quality pleather or leatherette (same cheapo rubbish whatever you call it lol) and a couple tins of spray adhesive ive started to tackle the roof I know it was looking a bit grubby but once it was out the car it was 21 years worth of grime and really wanting changed Its not back in yet but heres where im at so far ......... bear in mind ive never attempted anything like this before so there are marks and creases as i didnt have any where to unfold the fabric to let it decrease. also blimming amazon chinese sellers finest sent two batches that are slightly different. Messaged and they cant guarantee the same batches its just pot luck but i can live with it and thats what matter ....... i recon lol
  22. For sale our 1999 honda civic aerodeck 1.6 ES auto LOW MILEAGE I bought this car to be my daily and planned to manual swap it, sadly the plans has now changed and got a diff car. The car comes with factory fitted full vtis kit which is rare (has original invoice to prove this was factory fitted) Has low miles only done 83239miles has MOT till nov2021 FSH comes with the original invoice when new Comes with 2 spare and 1 immobilizer key The car isn't perfect has some chips, scuffs and lacquer peel on the rear lip but NO RUST! the car is solid. The car runs great but cv joint would need to be changed doesn't affect the drive there's just a clicking noise. I have some of the parts for the manual can come with the sale
  23. Been looking for ages , vtec aerodeck auto is the preferred choice seeing as im old and broken lol Im up in scotland so struggling to find one
  24. SOLD ** SOLD ** SOLD Decided that I'm not going ahead with the double din conversion on my Aerodeck so the completed centre console is up for sale. And fitted with the Xtrons Android head unit I bought. Note that head unit (although described by Xtrons as Double din) is NOT double din sized! I had to make brackets up to fit it to the console itself. Normal double din sided cage/head unit will fit the console as normal though. Please bear in mind that this panel is custom/home made, so there will be some imperfections. It does look good IMO as it is, although you might decide you want to refinish it to your own standard/level. Please also bear in mind that to fit this console to your civic, you will need to do the following: Move the heater controls and ashtray unit further down the console (easy enough to do) You will need to cut a fair bit of dash internals away to allow your new head unit/console to fit in. (There is a metal section needs removing where the single din head unit would sit.) Price wise, not sure how much this would go for as it's a none off (can't buy a DD conversion dash for our civics off the shelf). Standard console (I had to buy two to make one) cost £30 each plus delivery, so anyone want to make me offers on this (plus delivery)? If you need anymore photos let me know. The head unit will also be going up for sale, so if anyone is interested in both could make some sort of deal (only for civic5 members!). Otherwise it will go on Ebay.
