1991 Honda Civic EX project :)

So hey I'm new here:)
I have a huge list of restoration things here and there for the EX
but I've crossed a couple things off the list so far.
After selling my B16A civic wagon
This new ex will be my new daily and project.
My friend lownslowefsedan helped me pick her out.
and ironicly he has the exact same EX
similar problems too.
but not many
so to start things off.
The day I got it:


Today I painted the flat gray hood black, turned out good with a lot of clear coat. gave it a red pin stripe and polished the wheels. Smile








and then there's my previous wagons:) I've owned 3, here's the two b series girlies.




I'll be posting more when I get there:)
thanks for looking

I love wagons as much as sedans too:)

So a couple days ago I got basically christmas via mail for the sedan
I got my m3 spoiler
Window visors
HIDs
my suspension

pretty stoked on the outcome
still have a lot of work to do, pass fender is pretty banged up.
but I paint matched some color and I sprayed the bottom half of the bumper.
also did my 'custom' amber corners and bumper blinkers.
put a accord ex lip on it too just for now


thinking about what's next, I need to wire my o2 sensor really bad because I think it's having poor connection somewhere along the wiring harness. it works but barely and throws the o2 code












tell me what you think:)

Loving the drop... Car looks great the only thing that is throwing me off is the amber corner and turn signals. On the blue and with the red stripe in the molding it just doesnt seem right. Clear, I think, would make that front end look loads better. In the end its your car and if you like it than do what you want.

what window visors are those. Are they factory, stick on, or a different brand?

Dolie ED3

Yeah love the stance of it,but put on some usdm half clear half amber corners  .and also the clear signals!that would look great Smile
90EFSedan

That motherfucker is eating earth, lol.. Looks good though. How much adjustment was left on the Godspeeds? I was looking at getting a set for mine before it was all over with. They ride decent?
Proper282

I love it! Dragging mud flaps is the only way to go! What visors are those? Dont look bad at all

thanks man, and they're just stick on's off ebay, you have to bid for them. but the bid was starting at 42.50 and I won them at 43.00. hahah

I just love amber corners and stuff. I thought the clear was too.. dull basically but yeah:) thanks for the imput

I had skunk2 pro-s's on my wagon and they rode amazing but blew the rear struts out being so low.
these godspeed type rs's are really sick
I went around purposely hitting bumps to see what it felt like and I never bottomed out my struts or anything
they ride really good. and there's like 3 ways to adjust the height
I still have about an inch lower I can go all the way around the way I adjusted them(took out all the rings too) but my muffler is already about an inch off the ground. when I change lanes I take off the turtles in the road with it hahaha.

yeah I'm looking at it, it was just a test go about the stripe but I like it for now:) it was 6$ so yeah. that's my girlfriend's integra, that thing is a pain in the ass. it's like a bad omen. it's really clean besides that it just had a honda pilot back over the hood lmao but I just need to paint the new hood and we're done.

thanks man, can't wait to see some more updates on yours.
90EFSedan

lmao thats awesome. I'll probably get them in July or so if I can squeeze it out. The MR sleeves I got are decent for what they are but my shocks are shot anyway.. Plus I've used full coil overs before I never used sleeves until I got my sedan.

I saw the Godspeeds for $450-500 shipped is that about what you paid?

get the type rs's
they're 570shipped  
you will hate the type ss's
they're no good.

hell yeah though your car will be dumped like mine right?! haha
89 LX SOHC ZC

Ive got type ss's and they are just fine for me on the street daily but if you want adjustability go with rs's.

I have three friends up here with ss's and they are so dissapointed with how they ride and how low they cannot go, so I was only going off experience, not trying to hate on whoever bought them.
90EFSedan

Yeah I'll probably go with the RS's for the adjustments. But just to clarify, (this is with the RS) you can adjust the spring height on the shock, and you can also adjust the shock rate (IE. the dampening force of the shock) separately from the springs?

I took it off because I had to bumper coat the moldings and bumpers. it was faded and gross, I really liked the red pin stripe though. haha
EFitREI

Are you on stock struts/shocks??
Man i wanna go lower, but then i bet its a pain to drive
like especially here in Los Angeles where the roads are ghetto
Right now im on Tokico Blues, with Nuespeed or progressive springs
Idk what to get to go lower.. for a cheap price

And about the visors, i found imitations by HIC.. its like $40 for a
set.. they work really good and fit just fine, only thing is theyre imitations..

Mine are imitations also, but they're still legit.
And I'm on godspeed type rs full one pieces haha
I can still go lower but they're starting to bottom out strut as is, the roads here aren't too bad but there's a lot of sewer grates and shit

they're only 600ish
EF Sedan Enthusiast

He's on full coilovers by Godspeed.  

Nice pix dude, don't think you're low enough Razz  J/K  I agree that it looks better w/o the red stripe.

Next time have her lay on the hood or just model in general Wink
Towlie

lmfaooo nice man, yeah I was at the police station yesterday paying a ticket, anddd there was the biggest speed bump ever there was like a speed hump but tall I tried to go around it as much as I could buttt my car just had to get stuck right on top of it hahaha.. ironicly a cop helped me push it off then gave me shit for how low it is hahaha..

but nowww I have to fix my d16a6, the head has a bent valve and the timing belt is really really loose, andd to top it off my waterpump is leaking, sooo
I think I'm either going to go a6 bottom with z6 head or use the junkyard head I am gonna pick up and have a d15b non vtec head and throw that on. they're similar and about the same compression/horsepower. so I need to get on that.
JordanXXX

Took some legit pictures of my roomates d16z6 wagon today.
