The idea behind my build is simple. I want to build an EG the Honda never made. The plan is to use DC2/EK9 parts with maybe a couple of DC5/EP3 parts thrown in to mix it up and biuld a EG out of my ESi to make an ESi-"R"!!

Heres a couple of pics of the car as it stands right now at the start of the build...

I took around 50 or so pics this morning, so if you want to see the whole lot check out this link...http://s82.photobucket.com/albums/j247/guitar_moron/My Civic/Jan 09/ You can also view pictures of the car how it was when I bought the car in May last year.

I'll be keeping this thread a lot more up-to-date than my other one as it is now off the road and will have more money to spend on it therefore more updates :D

Looking good mate, look much much nicer with the bubble kit, rather than the old body kit bumper etc.
The colour is awesome!
What did the rear seats come out of? They look good!

I've been told they came out of an Escort Cosworth, however I think it may have been from a Sierra Cosworth. They're up for sale right now on PH, I'm gonna shove an ad up on here too now. I've also got some other bits up for sale as well so check out my for sale thread

I love the colour too however its gonna be changed.

EDIT: Cheers mate I'm probably gonna need it!!

Its gonna be Champ White mate :mrgreen: :twisted: :mrgreen: . And I'm gonna source a 5 stud conversion from an EK9 with EK9 alloys (probably refurb 'em so they look brand spanker aswell)

The idea is to use OEM/JDM parts but with maybe a couple of JDM Aftermarket parts on there aswell :D

The very same Davy. They haven't been in for the MOT yet. But they wont either cuz I'm gonna sell them. They shouldn't have a problem though but they do need adjusting before they go in for the test. Also theres a bulb out at the moment lol so that will need sorting aswell. I'm gonna put up an Ad on here in a couple of days.
