FIRST UPDATE! 2/6/11

Got my wheels, 15x7 +40 Drag Dr21. RPF1 Replicas. Got them for DiscountTire.com. $350 shipped, they're running a $50 instant savings on select sets of 4 wheels. Couldn't pass up the deal!

Put the NeoGen's from the meshies on them, tires look FAT. So track looking.

So right now i only have my H&R Trak 5mm spacers on the front because it rubs in the rear with them on. So once i save up for my Ground Controls i can fine tune the ride height and get the stance how i want. Right now as you can see the front is way too high lol

UPDATE: 2/15/11

Well friday I recieved some new part for the car from eBay.

BaysonR Si Vtec replica front lip, Overall i'm pleased with the lip. Fit well for $75 shipped. And the company ships them in a full size box

Here's the box
http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff18/Eh2_erik/Sheridan/29591b63.jpg

Opened
http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff18/Eh2_erik/Sheridan/4930f5ab.jpg

Lip straight outta the box, slightly deformed but nothing a little heat can't fix. It is Polyurethane.
http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff18/Eh2_erik/Sheridan/45242f45.jpg

Has these mounting brackets riveted in already. Nice thick polyurethane, looks to be decently strong.
http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff18/Eh2_erik/Sheridan/fab1dce4.jpg

Even came with mounting hardware.
http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff18/Eh2_erik/Sheridan/f2d2fe7b.jpg

Unfortunately i didn't take pics while i installed it, i did it at 4am on a whim. Went on fairly easy and all i can say is since it's polyurethane, heat is your friend. it went on exactly how i wanted and i used some quick clamps to hold certain spots in place while it cooled and hardened back up. All i wanna do now is hit it with some flat black paint or satin black because its too shiney for me, i want it to match the side skirts more but at least its on.

He're pics, and i got amber turn signals.

Update! 2/22/11

Picked up a set of Ground Control coilovers off N2hifi. I had a lot of fun putting these on, it had been a while since i got to do suspension so it was cool.

I'm pretty happy with the car right now, it's come together very quickly. It'll be a while before i get anything else for it. So thanks for looking!

Yeah i know what you mean, it will come in due time. Body work will be the most expensive part for this car.

Very nice man.. I would love to just do some basic things to my Civic like this to make it look better

Thanks man, i like this car a lot. Its a great DD and i'm a delivery boy so the car works great for me. Hopefully in the spring/summer i'm either gonna buy a Motorcycle, or find a cheap RWD drift project.

Nice wheel choice:thumbsup:

You can buy some trim paint from autozone. Paint your lip and side skirts with it. Should be the shade of black your looking for.

Eh2_erik
2011-02-28, 04:16 PM
Yeah, i actually got some of that the other day, just waiting for a nice warm-ish day to take the skirts and the lip off and hit them with a couple coats.

Stupid question? Why does everyone buy knock off wheels? RPF1s are cheap as chips.

This is true, however these wheels were even cheaper. And i'm a delivery boy so i'm not exactly raking in the cash.

Its just preference tho, i don't mind rocking knock off's.

Well, Here's an update. Bought Phate's Skunk2 LCA's and ordered some amber side markers, i put the LCA's in last night and just finished the side markers not too long ago. Oh and i also put the stock side mirrors on for the hell of it.

Thanks Phate!
http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff18/Eh2_erik/Sheridan/d24692b2.jpg

Bolts weren't a problem at all, got them on in about an hour.

For typical Honduh fitment, there is about a 350 dollar price difference.

It seems that most Honduh folks are hard pressed to pay more than about 450 for a set of wheels.

But I'll trade you a Xbox 360 with 32 games. It's a 600 dollar value man. I've also got a George Foreman grill and a like-new jigsaw. PM me if interested I really want those blades.

If i had a 98 rear bumper, i probably would've kept it. IMO the N1 looks better with the 94 bumper, follows the upward angle from the side profile.

It sounds good too, louder than ws2 which almost has no sound. But not obnoxious or raspy.

I still have my OE's too, they have aftermarket bushings in them from the previous owner, the skunks are just much prettier and i got em for $120.

Will i upgrade suspensions in the future? perhaps. but for now all this will do.

Haven't updated in a while. Not much new to the car.

Woodgrain wheel from JDMhookup.
Raised it up for AutoX.
Painted the wheels bronze.

Not too bad, i like the change. These will become my autox specific wheels when i get my tax return. They'll have Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Specs mounted on them and i'll have a new set of wheels for DD. Along with new wheels and tires, the brakes will be getting overhauled. Stoptech steel braided lines, Motul brake fluid, R1concepts slotted rotors for the front paired with Hawk HPS pads.
