Got 99-00 facelift model ek4 bout yr ago
Had it for around about 4months but was going off it
Going for euro look on it now,u'll either like it or hate it

Either way,let me know,i'm sure you will lol

Dont have any photos from start as phone broke and lost the pics.
So,got them from halfway.
Smooth is the way so side bumpstrips came off,aerial and roof rails out.
Holes in door,rear quarters and wings - welded in little plated to stop fibreglass sinking
Roof rails - Lead filled also to stop sinking.

Removed the rear lights and welded in a plate and filled over
Stupidly bought a tailgate panel for smoothing it but it was terrible and warped but managed to work my magic and sort it out

I then bought front mugen splitter and type r rear splitter
Rear,plastic welded the splitter to the stock bumper and filled it a plastic filler

Front,there were too many vents and holes going on so plastic welded over the fog light holes on stock bumper and filled
Then moulded the mugen splitter on and shaped

Here's a few from the back once i got on a bit
Sprayed it in a paint called barcoat,stopping any reaction in the paint when it goes to primer and paint.

I finished my bumper after about 40hours of work, was a pain but its turned out ok!
Just given it a first coat of white incase ur wondering why its not all getting painted at same time,it is.
I just wanted to see what it'd be like

using led's as they are the brightest light u get,and fitting them in the back to shine through the window.
A lot of thought and research into how i could do it, thats the best i can.
Aslong as the light is within 280mm from the edge of car its m.o.t able

but im trying not to think about that coz i know its gonna be very fiddly :confused:

Picked up a set of deep dish wheels, they were really badly damaged but cheap.2 at 9"wide and 2 at 7.5"wide
Sent them away to a specialist refurb shop and they have made great job

he aint going to get 9s on the rear if he doesnt without serious arch work, they will need rolling as it is.
Fit as snug as a rug,thats the beauty of independent susp,they camber as u lower
arches are rolled also the stretch on rubber gives a bit more to play with.

Cool cant wait to see them on :cool: i thought they would need rolling because the 9x16 with et15 on corrados need the rear wheel arch lips rolling , and they will sit with 7.5 x 16 et25 without rolling , and i thought most civic where around the et 35 so i just figured a lip roll was on the cards .
