It'll be like Christmas for the ol' girl. 

Should be sweet when it's all on... Doing it all at once will make it fell like a different car :)

I definitely agree, Im going to do essentials this weekend (drop links, ball joints and tie rods) and suspension either in the week after work (yeah right!!) Or next weekend if alls well

 

Still considering what wheels to go with, in a bit of a toss up between BBS RS Style or RPF1's - I love the polished look of the RS's but I just don't think I could clean them enough with all the country lane driving I do :lol:

SITREP 20170528 

 

Started ripping the Civic Sport apart today, car has finally got me to my end of my tether- everything has been tried and there's a water leak from somewhere on the (new, earlier this year) block and its driving me mental so I've decided to cut my losses and do the Deck'

 

All stuff I have will now be fitted/transfered and eventually the car will be sprayed - possibly nighthawk black :-D

 

Noticed the slam panel is slightly different so will be drilled out and swapped over (deck is bent a little bit)

So Saturday was a roasting day here so I got cracking. Sadly only managed to get Toe and Camber arms at the rear fitted as the LCAs and Coilover bolts were well and truely stuck.

Got new discs and pads all round to go on this weekend aswell ^_^

 

I'm going to give it another crack this week and get out the grinder :twisted: if all else fails I'll cut off the captive nut at the back and just throw on a nylock on the new LCA bolt

 

In other news everything is now here for a MOT time and once that's done and out the way in a few weeks I'll crack on

 

- also a VTIS rear arb here to go on as well as the rest of the bushing I'm looking to swap out now

I noticed the rear left is jammed/siezed as the boot is missing so Im going to pull them off the Civic Sport leaving me with 282/262 as it currently sits

 

I'm trying to get the coilovers and arms fitted but need to cut off some bolts

shame mate

It is, The Aerodeck needs more work underneath rectifying rust and bent jacking points than I'm willing to put in right now and I've started a new business so that needs all my time - I'll no-doubt be back though :D If I ever get another deck/mb I'd love to do all out full resto with sandblasted and dipped shell, engine swap, wire tuck and an updated interior

I'm still around... and so is the deck! I had a rollercoaster of last few months but she's still here - I actually can't see her going anywhere any time soon either! I looked around recently and theres nothing out there that I actually want that does everything the deck' does and can do. I'm doing some basic maintenance this winter and then maybe new year I'll dump it on its a*s

Good to see you back bud. 

I know what you mean about what you would want to replace the deck with.

I looked at about 50 different estates, including an Evo9 MR350 estate thing but nothing has really made me go nuts, the Evo was always a pipedream I'm working in oxford so an 80mi round trip a day and an evo (well my lead foot) certainly wouldn't be very fuel efficient :D

I've started building a K26 block but I can't see it going in the deck, I might however build a D16 turbo :ph34r:

Bought a D16y8 block for £50! The guy left everything including the engine loom so I started stripping it today; Test fitted a new hi-flo fuel rail and KC-TBS throttle body spacer/vortex ring which will help with volume when I come to boost the block

Also had some AN Lines, Fuel filter, line attachment and flare tool delivered.
DPD dropped off an order from HTUNE (Takata 6pt harness & NRG Short hub)
Autodoc shipped my ball joints and rear trailing arm bushes.

Adam Rafique at RHD delivered a VTIS kit for the deck

 

Got a fair few other things on order too. Lets build a fast Deck!

Nice! 8-)

Bargain on the block as well! 

I know, the guy didn't know what they were worth so said £50 I said I'll be there in an hour! :D

 

Next step is to order p2p0 forged rods and pistons, ACL full bearing set and ARPs

I've got an idea for a coolant catch can/overflow can from a Sapporo can, such a hard task to drink it :D

Seem to remember someone used a red bull can ( @KiNK43 maybe?) 

Looked pretty cool, so should be sweet.
