My Daily Project

So, when I first joined the site, I kind of turned the intro into my build thread...whoops.  Anyway, I guess Ill start from day one.

So I picked up my 91 DX on April 30, 2013 and it was the cleanest civic of this kind around my area (un-modded/lightly of course) and it took me two months to find this.  Before I picked this up I was driving a 97 CL 3.0 that I pretty much had to build from the ground up, but then the transmission went out and well I parted it out.  I spent $1200 on the civic and its an auto with 232k.  It has ebay sleeves on it which Im not too fond of but they'll do for now.

Here's the Acura (next to my friends 300ZXTT)


And here's the Civic before I bought it





First thing I did was clean up the stock wheels and paint them white




Only got two done that day due to weather but here was a comparison


Since then Ive repainted the wheels turquoise cause the white was a pain in the ass to clean (something I shoulda learned on my last car but white looks good on just about anything)


I made an interior piece from the existing glove compartment and made a tray, sort of a vip thing.




I havent installed it yet cause ive been really lazy but it'll be installed by the weekend

Picked up an EF SI front lip and had to cut the ends cause it was longer than the bumper, threw it on the car, and painted it and the bumper satin black because the flat black faded to quickly.



Will post the back and side when theyre done

What part are you located?
TheGreatBacon

I live fairly close to downtown, chaife the guy with the rat sedan is also relatively close to us; in Statesville. Charlotte needs more people in the EF game that don't ruin these cars.
WTEF_1102

I agree.  I met the guy with the rat at cars and coffee and met a guy on the fb page from kannapolis.  When I go to the UNCC meets, NCSC, CMC meets I am the only sedan and I think to myself that there has to be more guys in this area.

Will you be going to east coast fitment this saturday?
TheGreatBacon

Nah, mine isn't really ready to show anyone like that. Maybe cars and coffee in September though.
WTEF_1102

its all good ill look forward to seeing you around then.  If you get a chance come out to UNCC on tuesday nights

Went to pull-a-part today and didnt find what I was looking for but I did find this valve cover.  Eventually I'll put it on the car but Im gonna wait until i get the washers and new bolts.  But, here it is from start to finish.

So in about a month I'll finally be able to purchase some coilovers although Im not sure what brand to get (i wanna stay under $550).  There's an ebay brand or some no-name brand for $400-$450 and then theres FunctionForm type I's for $550.  I will also be ordering some wheels hopefully by the end of november or mid December.

Here's the wheels Im going with and yes they reps but I havent seen many or any sedans with the TMB wheels.
89 LX SOHC ZC

Nice wheels and I think I would spend a little bit more and get the function forms.
4dred6

love those wheels, too bad they dont come with lower offset.
WTEF_1102

So I was gonna buy my wheels this week, but, took my civic to honda to have a diagnostic test done and my brake light switch is gonna have to be replaced as well as my ignition lock assembly and then possibly another sensor that engages the shift lock...im looking at $900 -____________-...this fucking sucks
Geo-93

that sucks man
when you do get suspension i would say funtions they are good ride smooth
i have those on my sedan and i love how it rides

Noice!
EFfin Sedan 91

Love the wheels dude! What suspension is that and how do you like it? Looks like godspeed or something.
WTEF_1102

It is godspeed and theyre pretty decent.  They can go a lot lower and theyre not suoper bouncy like ppl claim.  My damper is set on 12/13 and its stiff but not too stiff
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Love it.  Any plans to bring the front down just a hair?
