Thanks bud. I know what you mean - I've wanted to do this for ages now, and it's turned out to be the perfect opportunity.

Wowzers! Amazing to have a new car again :)

 

Good on you for saving it rather than getting a completely new car. Wish i still had my Civic too :(

Surely it can't be gone, bodywork and engine were mint? If it has, it'll be the usual band of twats who break perfect cars for the engine/box and just to make coin cry.gif1 So many mint condition (and sometimes superbly modded/upgraded) MB6's have been broken over the years it's a sin.

 

Here, what's John doing with old Ruby? Did he ever get her back on the road?

So no way of getting the konis refurbished... They're fooked!

Seriously, you'd have thought that I parked my car in a salty pond every day, the amount of rust it's had! cry.gif1

 

Trying desperately to find some new ones from somewhere, but koni don't make them anymore. complain.gif1

That's a pitty mate as Koni stuff is always 1st rate. Still, looking at that mint bay and all the newly refurbished suspension makes me envious! Looks sooooo good! Any idea on the time frame for Tubs2 hitting the road?

Cheers man. maybe in the next week or so it'll be ready, but I need to sort stuff out with the DVLA. 

 

Would anyone happen to know whether the bolt that connects the lca to the cross member is the same on any other honda like a dc2? 

 

Need a new one and typically can't get one

hmm, I would imagine so but not one I've had to source before. The DC2's were based on the civic chassis (although probably more EG/EK than MB) essentially so I'd assume the bolts were the same?

It'll be very similar however i recall the pitch of all the bolts on my eg were different to the mb so couldnt swap them about. Not positive but you may be in the same situation with dc2 bolts.

Personally I replace them all with good quality stainless steel bolts. Look nice and shiny and no rust issues later on. No problems with breakages etc in over 10 years

I think they should fit mate, guess it's trial and error now with our civic M's as more and more parts are becoming discontinued (not that we ever had a huge list in the first place, but things like these were usually easy to get) shrug.gif1

Quite bad i think! Also needing brakes redone etc. If someone made him an offer then it would be away i think :(

Sad times man. Think Gayle would blow a gasket if i even hinted at buying Ruby back, with me having DD and the MX5 (both got stuff needing done and i haven't got my new garage yet so cant get naff all done!). He should fix her up though, cracking car and decent mb6's are getting hard to find now. If I had the money and time i'd have her back again, love that old girl!
