Well the idea is to use mostly Spoon Sports parts on the EM1. This will be a challenge as Spoon never made any external parts for the coupe just the hatch. Engine wise that’s not a problem as the EM1 shares the same components as the EK4, So almost all the parts in the engine bay will eventually be replaced by Spoon parts. And if and when I can get the money I will be purchasing a Spoon B16/B18 engine to put into the coupe. However that will be the last thing to be done as the stock B16 is good enough as is, but it would be good to have the extra 2k RPM that the Spoon B has :p

Externally the car will be VERY different from the standard coupe, Yes folks the car will have a kit. But you’ll have to wait and see for the kit as I’m not giving anything away yet (NO it’s not going to be an OTT kit).


Anyway that was the plan, however that’s kinda been put on the back burner at the moment as the car needs to be repaired from its little run in with a Hilux. (full story here: viewtopic.php?f=32&t=4192" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; )

As ya’ll see from the pictures below there is a wee….. bit of damage to be repaired first before I can get back on track.





















Got a heap of new parts coming, so I will update again when I have some of the new parts.

Ah the damage isn't that bad, attack it with a lump hammer and will be fine. I take it its not an insurance write off and you didn't report the accident?

Cheers bud, well this is going to be a VERY special build as the car needs to be ready for May the 31st as it will be being displayed at my club stand at NEMS09.

Good luck with the project
Yeah found out that civics dont come out well when they nudge a Hi-lux lol But to be honest about three quaters of the damage is just body work damage so its simple to fix that..... buy new panels lol
