New Guy from NC

What's up guys, I'm Bryan and I picked up my 91 DX about a week ago.  From the looks of it its still pretty clean and riding on ebay sleeves.  Not sure if I want to keep them on there since they came with the car and maybe go with GC's and Koni yellows down the road.

This isnt my first car nor is it my first Honda.  My last car (Acura CL 3.0) blew a tranny and was expensive to maintain and fix so getting this civic will be a blessing lol.

Here's my 06 Accord - SOLD


97' CL


And here's the civic
4dred6

welcome to the site man, i think i saw that CL on the Accord picture
thread on H-T.  looks like a clean car any more plans for it?
let us know if you any ?s
WTEF_1102

Yeah, I ordered some corolla fender mirrors (because its different), Im going to be painting the stock wheels white for now until i can get some new wheels, and ill be repainting the bumpers and door molding

Welcome. A fresh paint to the moldings and fenders always make a big difference.

Welcome looks like a nice start.

What are your plans for her? new heart? JDM front? RHD???
WTEF_1102

If I save all my money till next year id have enough for a k swap, but if not, im going with front lip, drop the front a little more, Effect Wheels (Lethal) 15X8 0 offset which should fit right?
EF4lyf3

They will fit just fine,

K-swap is some fine taste right there. Have fun with traction though.

a k swap would be awesome. sounds like a fun project.
WTEF_1102

I wanna go k24 but I've heard the hood clearance is next to none.  Has anyone done it and if so would the b18 axels work with this setup?
tenkaracole

I dont think anyone on here has done a k swap. your in uncharted territory i believe! but maybe someone has? it can be done! Very Happy
EF Sedan Enthusiast

There are several sedans roaming around with k swaps.  It can be done and it is awesome  Twisted Evil
EF4lyf3

My favorite is the white on green sedan. Soo sick man
WTEF_1102

So I bought the paint for the trim and bumpers and white paint for the 13's...btw has anyone done a retrofit on our headlights, just the projector and no halo?
WTEF_1102

may have cracked a ringland. already bought another block, but going NA so myself and a friend of mine will be evenly matched on the road course. that and my wife is tired of me being turbo with all the little things that come up. i would prefer to stay turbo, but gotta look at the bigger picture
EF4lyf3

turbo can definitely be a headache that's for sure!. Clean car man I like how she's coming along! I need to paint my moldings as well and im going to buy a new bumper to et that super fresh look.
WTEF_1102

Thanks for all the support and comments guys.  Every little thing can turn a whole car around.  Right now im just waiting for the clear coats to finish on the rear wheels and im just sanding down the side molding and rear bumper now.  Its gonna be painted flat black  but not sure if i want to clear it with flat clear.  When I painted my bumpers and trim for my xterra, I did 3 coats of the flat black without clear and it stood up to mud and light scratches.  Any suggestions.
BLU CIVIC

make sure you keep tabs on your car. too close to gastonia

Gonna be ordering a front lip here soon, need to fix the big ass crack in the windshield, new wheels eventually, might swap out the ebay sleeves for ground controls, if i can do a retrofit on the headlights i might do it, 6K HID kit in the next few weeks, clean up the engine a little bit by painting the VC white, polishing up the exhaust manifold and maybe some other things, get a quick release from NRG or grip royal, and just keep it running.

Sweet man sounds like you have a good plan for it and are you looking at the grip royal wheels for your whip they are pretty dope. Im having to wait a couple weeks for mine.
4dred6

im pretty sure you can use the ebay projector headlights with the oem headlight glass
WTEF_1102

I just dont like the halo rings...

So Ive been running through the possibilities of repainting the car the Premium Sunset Mauve from the s2k or this

Anybody ever heard about yonaka coilovers?  They're $100 cheaper than f&f.
HondaJunkie

Yes i have i was going to purchase them actually. It's a company from canada but the product itself is the same exact as the F&F just painted gold with a black spring and the spring rates are slighty more stiff on the yonakas. Same product cheaper price there is no difference from all the info ive read.
WTEF_1102

Interesting...cause I liked the type ones....I may look into these.
WTEF_1102

So Im scrapping the purple cause apparently thats the theme my friends going with on his S2k, so im gonna do the Carbon Bronze Pearl that was on my accord but with a little darker base coat, keeping the bumpers and trim black and then later on down the road gonna do white engine bay with the white wheel combo.

Sounds nice.
WTEF_1102

Its been awhile since my last post but today I managed to fix my main relay.  Also, ordered my wheels and will be getting some godspeed or FFtype1s in the next month.
4dred6

what wheels did you end up getting? Effects?
WTEF_1102

Avid. 1 av-03 15x8 +25
4dred6

http://honda-tech.com/showthread.php?t=1583747&page=2613

wheels r 15x8 25 offset.tires r 175/50/15
WTEF_1102

Well wheels were put on back order so I cancelled them and put in a new order for the AV-12 wheels, gonna either be ordering the yonaka, godspeed, or function form type 1's in the next week cause my sleeves just arent cutting it.

I have finally settled on a color for the car...Midori Green
4dred6

that sucks. and midori is gonna look sick. ive only seen one sedan that color
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Yeah midori is gonna look awesome!
WTEF_1102

im diggin the white steelies with the h caps ! looking good brotha.
WTEF_1102

So I went to Home Depot and picked out some light maple/hickory hardwood flooring for my trunk space.  I haven't seen this done in an ef sedan or ef in general, and it definitely beat having old, smelly carpet.  I can't wait to get started.  Also, I'm getting my valve cover hydro dipped in a wood grain finish and I might be trying in incorporate a wooden tray with cup holders since I don't have any.
WTEF_1102

Drew up the plans and the only difference between this and the final is that the tray is starting from the back of the dash and extending to the point of the dash where it meets the glove compartment.

The measurements are 14" long, 10" wide and a total of 4 1/2" tall.  Im gonna post up the pictures of the process.
WTEF_1102

4dred6

That's gonna be sweet
WTEF_1102

here's the final rendering
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Dude that's like old school meets new school. Love it.
WTEF_1102



WTEF_1102

So here's the final product.  It should only take 2 days tops, but I kinda slacked over the weekend.

Supplies:
3/8' Lauan Board 24x24
4 1/2" Wood screws (go into the existing holes on the back of the door)
1-2 Viyl Wood grain tile with adhesive backing

Took out the entire glove compartment out and used only the door and metal bracket that lies under the black box.

Set the bracket on the door and held together with two screws from the original hardware.

Bought some 3/8" styrofoam and cut out a template


Trace the template on the Lauan board and then cut out.  Needed to sand down the edges to keep from splintering.  But before mounting make sure the original hinges are screwed in their original places.


Lastly I applied the vinyl and used a propane torch to mold the panel around the bracket which also made the panel softer and easier to cut with a sheet rock knife.
