Well here we go :)

This is my Daily which I use to just get to and from work everyday, but doesn't mean im not going to leave it be ;). Since I have picked it I have;

- Carbon Fibered the Hood.
- Painted wheels black (As im swapping them for some nicer ones and other fella wants em black.)
- Bought a Hi/Lo HID kit
- Got some Stickers for it
and just generally cleaned it up.

Some current future plans for her are to get dints removed and get a respray on it, maybe looking at going white but for now I am still stuck on red and ofcourse just a few little things here and there.

Unfortunetly everything has been put on back burner for now as pretty much all seals in car are brittle and leaking oil due to age and is currently in mechanics getting fixed up, costing me $1000... :0 lol, but after that atleast I kno it aint going to be leaking anymore, so it is a little bonus.

Anyway, I have rambled on enough for now so here is some pictures from when it was first purchased to what it now looks like at the moment, I'll be back with updates :)

I want to get a white face for my cluster, does anyone know where I can get one? I am pretty sure I have seen like a throw ver sort of thing before, just sits in front of proper one.... Not to sure though,,,

mattb1993
26-10-11, 10:35 PM
Ohh yea! Another little update I forgot to mention before.....

Some idiot in a Honda Odyssey decided to merge into the lane I was in without bothering about a few important things, u know like if there is someone already there!, I was driving in the right hand lane when he decided to merge, I minimised most of the damage to me left hand side me swerving to the right (Mounting the island in middle of road) and slamming on my brakes. I followed him to try and get him to pull over but he didnt so I reported it in the afternoon. Apparently it was a company car and cops called owner and he should be contacting me before week is up to organise compensation for my damages, cops said it'll just be a cash job cause its not a lot of damage (Found more damage since report / Mechanical)

But yea not to sure how much I should ask for, but he scraped my front bar, taking some paint off, completely dented my wheel arch all way round, absolutely no chance of a panel beater doing anything, (and now cause of me having to get a new front fender to replace it paint is gona be off cause if it gets painted red rest of car is faded as :/ lol), but yea that he scraped my mirror (not really a problem), one of my CV's is stuffed (from mounting island) just starting to make a clicking noise when turning (it may be wheel bearing but I dont think so) and also front suspension on drivers side seems to be fucked now also.... Good thing is that 2-3 weeks ago my car was in mechanics and was COMPLETELY checked over to see if anything was wrong with it and there wasnt so this is all new damage.

So I am not sure how much I should ask for to be fair, its gona be alot of f**king around for me to fix everything so I think thats gotta be taken into consideration.... I don't like the fact that I have to stuff around to fix my car...

But we will see how things go, hopefully all goes well and I can get everything sorted, better then me claiming it through his insurance anyway... being a company car I do believe it would make his excess go through the roof!!

Pictures of damage will be up soon along with other updated pics.

2 Updates. (Pictures up soon)

Update 1 - Motor has been taken out of Civic and new one has been put in, dizzy pins then snapped when adjusting timing then went and purchased another and got motor running, however still overheating. Tested Water pump and thermostat and both work fine so I have put it down to the radiator so now waiting on the arrival of my new alloy radiator.
Have also put a Carbon Fiber Duckbill on it :)

Update 2 - Purchased a '03 Honda Integra DC5 Luxury, Pictures soon!

mattb1993
07-04-12, 02:57 PM
Okay so I said I would post some updated pictures of civic.

Updates in photos:
- Took motor out and out the new one in along with a new alloy radiator
- Carbon Fiber duckbill wing
- Got some free rims and painted them black, now I just need decent tyres before I can put them on
- Got a little silly with dash and decided to sticker bomb

ohh and both of my joys together :)

Did you just straight stick the stickers on? I swear they're the worst... leave the car in the sun for 2 hours, come back and everythings peeling off even after 6 coats of clear.

mattb1993
07-04-12, 03:53 PM
Na glued a few of the ones on that werent sticking properly, I know in the picture that the orange ones look like they are hanging off but thats just the angle of picture, been on for 1 week now and none have started peeling also done glove box and center console and they are fine to, (4 coats of clear)

07-04-12, 04:21 PM
What sort of glue mate? I've been trying to find some sort of plastic adhesion spray to spray on the back of the stickers then put em on and clear it. I guess your stickers aren't facing the sun so isn't too bad.

Just got a little tube of super glue and put tiny bits on the ones that didn't fully stick and the ones that going around crappy angles which worked wonders, but managed to also get it all over my fingers. Adhesive spray wouldnt be so good for it I dont think, it doesnt go to well with things that already are supposed to be sticky, tried using it on number of different materials (carbon wrap for one)

Yea mate, all I did was give em a wash with some tar and glue remover to remove contaminants and then gave them a few coats of high gloss black paint just in a pressure can, didn't react at all and came out really glossy nothing wrong with em at all. Also managed to really mask the gutter rash really well. Not bad for $20 worth of paint..
But yea man when I put em on car ill have pictures up, was going to put on but the last car they were on had camber (as does mine just not much) and they are COMPLETELY worn

Ahh ok, superglue means you can't peel it off cos it'll take chunks of your shiet off though. Was gonna use it as a last resort sort of thing. Amazing how many things you can do with just one stickerbook ey, but like 75% of the stickers in there look gay lol

Na bro cause generally only used it on stickers that were going over other stickers so wont be a problem, plus tar and glue remover does wonders ;)

** SOME NEW UPDATES**

Car is currently off the road once again do to a VERY bad wheel bearing, getting it replaced very soon but while the car is off the road I have been having a little bit of fun with it :)
First I decided to get rid of the sticker bomb on dash and glovebox got over it being in interior it was far to busy and look cluttered. Also I have sticker bombed the front passenger fender, and gave it a few coats of clear (one too many I think as it is a TAD cloudly)
In Progress
http://i1191.photobucket.com/albums/z463/mattb1993/IMAG1030.jpg
Done :)

http://i1191.photobucket.com/albums/z463/mattb1993/IMAG1043.jpg


While its off road also plan to do a good clean up (Shit everywhere from work) and also taking out the seats and putting in my black leather recaros :)
http://i1191.photobucket.com/albums/z463/mattb1993/IMAG0556.jpg

Last but not least picking up paint this weekend so it'll be getting painted and windows tinted within the next 2 months.

Ohh and I am also looking at swapping my set of black hyperfangs (bad tread), white rims on civic (good tread), and 3 Civic Steelies for some nice wheels!

mattb1993
16-05-12, 10:19 PM

Haha, only on fender now, got rid of the interior stickers as it was just too much.

*New Updates done in past 2 days*

Stock seats take out, now have black carpet,
Tomorrow I will be putting in my recaros and also getting rid of the red bits in interior and making them black

18-05-12, 08:04 PM
Like I said its only temporary until I get it painted, that fender is being replaced as it had damage on it from when someone sideswiped me and paint atm is pink and roof is terrible!

mattb1993
26-05-12, 07:16 PM
**Update**

Fender is no longer cloudy and is nice and shiny and cannot feel stickers at all anymore so that's where I want it to be.

Carpet and red plastics are now black and I also put my gauges and a tacho in the car.
Went to put seats in today and the width of the recaros is to wide so I will be having to customise them and add 2 metal pieces going width ways so I can drill holes in the right place.

Mhmm I am not a big fan of it, its actually carbon wrapped with clear coat on it, and from certain angles looks black lol
