Thought i would keep you guys updated on the Project. i am hoping to get the funds together for the welding for September. so fingers crossed she should be all solid very soon. In other news, i found the infamous red key of death lol. Remember to never use these to start the car!No description available.

Glad to hear the weldings getting done mat, that'll be a big part of the resto done with that out of the way. If you have her ready for 2nd October (or even just on the road by then) should bring her to the civic5 st mary's loch meet, be a good run for her and nice to see you there if poss.

I don't think it will be ready for October sadly. It needs a heck of a lot more work unfortunately, once the welding and painting is done etc, ill be moving onto refurbishing all the suspension and pretty much everything underneath will be getting either replaced or refurbished. ive got an estimate of probably early next year itll be done by. ill be posting regular updates and pictures on the forum. and i may even do a few videos too! :)

Deffo do this mate! There are hardly any resto's/how to guide videos on Youtube for these Civic's so if you can try and log your progress/how you do it on video/pics. I'm in the middle of replacing the rear ABS sensor on DD, and she's needing a hella good rub down, then rust treatment before getting her undersealed. Suspension arms etc all rusty so really looks crap! They're still solid, but need to get it done otherwise they will eventually rot. Seeing first signs of surface rust on the floor at the rear too (not bad for her age!) so going to get that all wire brushed down with the grinder before treating and then sealing it. It's a thankless task, and not one I'm sure I've got in me but I'll either need to do it or ship it out to be done.

 

Looking forward to following your progress on this mate!

Im planning on doing a series of YT videos on my channel regarding the civic, ill be doing a complete tear down of the rear trailing arms, getting them sandblasted powder coated, new bushes etc the whole lot will be done, all the old underseal will be removed, treat any surface, either epoxy or zinc prime it depending on how it goes, and then a good coating of upol gravitex and a overcoat of silver, should be looking mint then! Cant forget the Waxing too!
