Greetings from the north, this is my second aerodeck. My first car was a MB8 that i bought in July 2008 but in march 2009 i couldn't resist anymore, took a loan and got myself the car that i had wanted in the first place, the MC2. It wasn't in the best possible condition when i got it and still needs lots of work, but slowly and surely it's starting to turn into what i hope one day will be the lowest, fastest and baddest Aerodeck in Finland.

I just got my winter rims from Alloywheels.com and got them installed, i'll post pictures of the new look soon. I have lots planned for my deck... i'll keep you updated on the progress.

The Koni sport kit lowers the car 35mm. Comes also with adjustable shock absorbers, pretty handy except for when adjusting the rear, you have to dismantle the interior a bit. My car came with this kit when i bought it, it's seen action for 6 years now and i'll probably get a new kit with adjustable ride height this winter. I want to get that nose to hug the tarmac! :D

Brand new rims for the winter, 15" League 273's (pic's clipped a bit):

Feel free to disagree, but i'm super satisfied with these shiny little bad boys! I've never been a fan of OEM Honda rims and my deck didn't even have them, it came with lots-of-spokes 17" Mille Milglias which i ditched immedeatly as too big and the winter tires didn't even have alloys.

But modifying will have to stop now for a bit, i'm going to get the underside thoroughly checked for rust (was almost spotless when i bought it last march) and get the necessary spots welded, and then rustproof the whole underside to give me a couple of years of carefree winters. They put a lot of salt on the roads here in the winter and you can imagine what it does for cars... luckily my MC2 has only seen 6 winters here, she's (he?) a german immigrant ;) like all the other 1.8 Deck's in Finland. Also fuel filter and coolant fluid renewal are next on the to-do list. I've also got a AKR short shifter waiting for installation... 8-). I'll post some pics of the interior next.

Hi. I finally got some decent pictures taken so i think it's time for an update. I've done some mods and minor repairs since my last post in october, so here we go.

First of all i got my underside rustproofed. Now i should be all set against the salt for a couple of years. As the snows melted away, i installed a set of H&R coils and dropped the car as low as it would go without the tires rubbing against the fenders... and in my case i didn't really get it any lower than it already was, maybe 5mm at the most! But anyway, now i have the adjustment option if i want it, and i think the ride is better than with the Koni's i had before.

Next i tried to remove the rear tow hook, which proved impossible, so i took it to the shop. Much better looks and 30lbs lighter! :)

Osram nightbreaker bulbs, new wiper blades, clear repeaters and a new windshield to replace the old cracked one did lots to make the overall look much smoother.

(new blades, old windshield)

I swapped my old exhaust tip for a chromed one, only until i'm getting my Magnaflow back box, which is probably this autumn. Also did my first mod under the hood, which was a high flow intake by TSS Tuning. I don't know about any horsepower gain, but i just love the sound... mild purr at first, and a roar once it hits Vtec! :twisted: The best 100 euros i've ever spent! :lol:

Last weekend i painted the rear calipers red to match the front ones i did a year ago.

Also swapped the driver door's window sill :?: to a new one. Was quite expensive (80 euros) but the old one was hella ugly and driving me mad so well worth the effort.

That's about it for the moment, hope you enjoy the pics. I'm pretty satisfied with the progress i've made since i got it a good year ago. Interior pics coming and also complete new exhaust, from the manifold to the backbox. 8-)

Thanks for the comments, guys. Almost as soon as i got the new windshield, i received some free saturdaynight tuning from a random mr. nice guy in the form of a broken sunroof and a ripped off rear wiper.

Needless to say, i was a bit upset :evil: . But luckily my insurance covered it, and got it fixed last thursday, just in time for a big tuner meet over here in the capital area last friday. Not that many hondas there, but a couple of ok civics, a nice crx and an awesome integra type-r next to a mint del sol. Mine was the only M there, but what can i do, gotta represent! 1"£££$££"!! If you're interested in the Finnish modding scene, here's a link to some pics: http://jkphoto.kuvat.fi/kuvat/events/Eurocruising%2027.8.2010/

Later we took some snaps at a burger place parking lot. Silver looks so much better in the dark IMO...
