    97 EK hatch

    Post by Dminted on Wed Sep 21, 2011 12:10 pm

    This is my 1997 Honda Civic when I first got it over a year ago.
    Have done quite a bit since then and now it sits in pieces Sad



    After the coilovers went on



    The carbon fiber gauge cluster



    Grill update



    New headlights with HID




    Lower control arms and exhaust setup



    new fenders



    After another new coilover setup. had to raise a little higher just to drive.



    best pic I got with the new fenders new bumper new fog lights and carbon fiber hood



    How it looked right before I had to park it



    As it sits now



    Will post more pics and updates as soon as possible. Thanks for taking a look.

    trying to figure where to start on the tear down of my car. want to have the engine taken to my local shop for a rebuild since I don't have the means of doing so. Not looking forward to the price of that though.

    Thanks but interior is at the bottom of the list right now, would love to just have it running again. Like the wagon definitely not the average tuner.

    Went to clean out the garage and organize all my parts just laying around and found a crap load of spider webs all around my car. It has been sitting for far too long and I hate it. But I got my front bumper put back on so at least it looks better just sitting there Laughing .

    I know the feeling I hate looking at my car and seeing it not drivable.

    thanks, it's always good to know I'm not the only one with a project that isn't going smoothly.

    Got the timing belt I needed today just need to see if I can replace it. Never done a timing belt before. Anyone in the Phoenix AZ area feel free to come help me.

    Got a new exhaust ordered as well from Vivid Racing. Should be delivered next week I hope. Got the Buddy Club Pro Spec exhaust set up, all the youtube videos of it sound great so it should be awesome.

    Well tried to tackle the timing belt. I have no impact gun so attempted it the old fashioned way and the lower pulley broke my extension. So I've got parts of the car off and it is just sitting until I figure something out.

    my Buddy Club exhaust came in the mail today!! So excited. Too bad I can't enjoy until I get this stupid timing belt on. Still no luck with getting the lower pulley off. Need an impact gun. Also got my jdmtechops.com decals today.

    Aw come on you tease with the paperwork but not the exhaust? That's like a mardi gras chick only showing bra.

    I tried really hard to haggle down the price, that's the jew in me lol, but the guys at vivid racing just weren't having it. I did get them down to $625.00 shipped!
