what happened? was the LSI wing.. was it of a 4 door? as they dont fit the 3 door, different shape slightly.
dont ever give up mate, its the reason we love cars, we love to hate them some times, because it make the times when they work fine that much better.

use photobucket.com to upload your images mate.

well i waited for like 5 weeks for a wing to get painted, and well it dont fit sooo i was abit pissed tbh, i got the wing with the car...and the lad said it was off a LSI, but its like 1.5" off, guessing this was a 4door, so you say a 3door LSI hatch wing would fit. or i could get the old panel rebeat, but i really carnt afford it atm, yea i should know better tbh, i am a mechanic. just i have lost all patiance. i have soooo much to do to get it on the road, and i have like 2 days a week to do as much as i can, i really need help to get back on track....thanks

well dont make rash decisions mate, give it all time to calm down. yeah any 3 door hatch part will fit, and just rebeat it with a hammer, as a part time solution and it will do the job until you want to buy another one.

This is my girlfriends old eg , Its a great little car and id advise anybody with a dx to swap to twin carbs, cost be about £15 for the full carb setup from the scrappy and took about an hour to do, and the difference is unbelievable.
Im really sorry about the wing mate, got it out of my mates garage and neither of us has ever had a 4 door so i assumed it was for a hatch.
Ive got three eg' s at the moment that i am breaking so if you need anything let me know and il do you a good deal to make up for the wing, should have a few performance parts like adjustable cam gears and 4-2-1 manifold aswell

yea hopefully might be selling the old wing, errmmm yea ill have to check it out ash, it ok bout the you can make it up with a top deal... ;) yea ill have a look at some performance parts. giving the car A FULL service, oil, air, fuel fiters, oil, 5 star petrol, and the rubber seals on the carbs conversion need changing, some new pipes, and a flipping good clean in the engine, was guna think of ripping that engine to bits, and giving it a little tune up, port polish and all, grind the cylinders, but yanoo........... TIME! ill keep posting pics of changes, and i should have sus soon so its going 40mm or so, and guna transform this DX ash, thanks for the sale.... :p

yeah those rubber seals have needed changing for a while, it ok because they still seal but worth changing them at some point.
Theres 2 4th grn civics up at greggies scrap yard with twin carbs on them, it may be worth taking the whole carb conversion as a spare as he only wants £15 and they should have support brackets to hold the carbs a bit steadier so the seals dont crack again, the one i got them off was missing the support bracket
