Hi i bought this baby for cheap as the guy smack the side up on a post, (low speed luckily). You can see the primer on the offside door, thats actully a dent.

Idea is i primer it now, get a new door and pull out the rear arch. Then when its a bit warmer il spray it all the original black colour. Boots been smoothed over, great for number plate light positioning, I think not. Im hoping to put an integra rear bumper on to use the number plate recess in that.

Everything works on it. Im happy with that just looks a bit patchy atm. Drives nice.

Any ideas what to do with it. Different paint job? Engine conversion? wide arch kit? turbo? drive conversion?
Enlighten me im new to hondas.













Cheers. Tony.

im after a set of rear lights like that...(standerd 1s) as ive had to put silly silver lexus lights on mine for now and i cnt stand them.....silver lexus lights on a solid black coupe looks out of place to say the least lol.... its either between standerd style or skyline style circular 1s in black, with the circle being red LED.

Its failed its mot 2 times now, and its now having a retest. Rear offside drum brake is either not hard enough for the handbrake and so i adjusted it up and now its rubbing constantly. Fingers crossed i sorted it, its so nice to drive (off public roads :rolleyes: ) just want it to pass.

It has a temp numberplate light on atm as i broke the number plate light bolts i was fitting, looks...terrible, but with the light bolts looks nice. I hate wiring.

Next thing is to respray...bit cold atm...il keep you posted.

Drum handbrakes ain't usually that temperamental, discs are normally the bugger.... not that that helps you out though, good luck with the retest :D
