If that was the case then you could have sent him a SMS or a PM.

But you chose to type it on a public forum with a lot more members than just Kaotic and yourself.

The rules are listed at the top of every forum by the way, and typing in English is one of them. I think you should read them.

We seem to have to go through this with ever third person that joins the forum now.. :rolleyes:

i painted my rims with vht brake caliper paint. theyll all give basically the same finish i think.
though mine faded a bit after a while, matt black seems to do that

a higher "k" doesn't make the lights brighter.. it just gives its a different tinge of colour

i have 6000k on my s14a and 6000k and 4300k are the brightest whilst retaining white light. 4300k is pure white, 6000k has a hint of blue and 8000k is HEAPS blue! The higher the "k" the lower the brightness

ANYhow, thats a nice civic, but If i was you, I would put the stock taillights back on, tint them black and then lower the car a few inches :)

Not sure if its the best but did last 12 months until I sold the rims;
2x Cans of a good primer (by good i mean most expensive on the shelf lol) - $15 ea
3x Cans of Aussie Export black spray paint $3 ea
2x Cans of a good gloss finish clear coat

Yeah i forgot/didnt use a primer as some ppl told me it wasnt nessasary...

do u think it would be better to strip the paint and re do it with a primer? or just keep spraying over them? cause the paint isnt peeling off...it just looks like its fadding and like the silver is coming through so it doesnt look so black...i was thinking of doing it today since its a nice hot day:)

i was also thinking about getting them air brushed?? i wanted to get them powder coated but cant cause they have to be baked in the oven which means i have to take the tyres off:/

if you sand down to metal use etch primer otherwise normal primer will do the trick.

VTECMACHINE
27-12-07, 12:32 AM
Errrrmmm don't like the rims, tail lights, ride height. Although that "racing" K&N filter must have added heaps of powa! :P
They so aren't Toda 4-2-1's. If they are... sorry, but they don't look like Toda.

I reakon you should lower it a bit, and get a CTR/Mugen front lip or something. Please take off the Type R badge, it's not a Type R - nor does it have a B-series engine.

I never knew Mugen made genuine seat covers.

Hens
27-12-07, 01:12 AM
add the spoiler to the list.

it would be so much better with oem lights, take off the middle spoiler, leave the top one.
lower it.

you are really pushing your limits using 8GA power cabling to power 2x amps:)

we all got to start somewhere though
my first set of 16s were used at stock height many years ago.
then diy spring install decked 3inch, was under the guards, pumping 140db+ on george st.
back then it was cruise culture.
memories...

sanding does help a fair bit ... although the only issue is the time it takes to do it.

i used the "PowerPlus" range to paint some wheels and they had turned out better than i had expected, they are a little pricey though.

27-12-07, 02:18 AM
i ddnt know Toda made headers for the D16 or any SOHC rigs

unless the B series headers fit .. :/

IMO ditch the 2nd spoiler (lower one).. and slam it big time.
oh and some nice audio gear you have running.

Yes yes i have been working on those tail lights... iv been realy busy hence the reason for them bling bling tail lights to be still on... but now the holidays have come around and i have had much more time on my hands...so the last couple of days i have been busy to work on my car:)

hope u like some of the new additions....next is suspension which will be done next year along with some type of front lip if possible:)

Hey Kin,

How about painting the black rubbing strips that run along the sides and the bumper quarters silver like you've done with the skirts? That would help a lot. Also, I'd go back to STOCK tail lights and maybe clear side repeaters too. With the dark tint, you've got too much black on the silver at the moment.

Not being critical, but more of just a thought to help make the civic the best it can.

i was going to paint the black strips on the doors and bumpers to but i kinda like it how its silver and black... thought silver looks a little pansy? but yes all silver would make it look much cleaner... Awww im starting to like the tinted side repeators and tail lights... i was thinking of getting clear side repeators b4 but thats $50 spent some where else:)

thanks though...

wasabi
28-12-07, 06:15 PM
saw the car today at eastwood .. looks much better with blacked tail lights but STOCK > BLACK > CLEAR imo. Yer and i agree colour code the side mouldings. Ild also remove the mid spoiler and the "powered by honda" badge and maybe some stickers but hey thats just me.

But nice work on tinting the tail lights.

Justin Fox
28-12-07, 07:30 PM
Painting lights is dodgey dude, not to mention you'll most likely get defected for painting them too.

Agreed we all have to start somewhere, but in your situation, going back to 100% dead stock would earn you a better looking car than what you have got after your modifications!

Take a good look through the Civic Picture Gallery in the appearance thread, there's many hot Civics in there, much of which you can use for inspiration.

nath
28-12-07, 07:36 PM
Had a thought.

Can you take a good hi res shot of your car as it is now, post it up and then maybe some of us on here with some decent photoshop skills could do a chop on what might look the best using the elements / parts that you have. I would be more than happy to do this and I'm sure other people would be too. It might help to visualise the modifications more clearly on what would be achievable on a limited budget / DIY level.

28-12-07, 08:34 PM
Tinting rear lights can be an issue.
Its harder to see, i don't care what they say, and its also a defect item.

Id say, going to stock tail lights would be your best bet.
if spray the side strip silver, as against the black, it would look a whole lot better.

The middle spoiler is also a killer. Its just uglier every time you see an ek with one.

eug4emi
28-12-07, 08:53 PM
each to their own, but if i had your cvc, next steps i would do that aren't too budget hurting are:

1. tail lights are better than clear but like most said, go back to stock, sell ur tinted ones on ozhonda or sumfin
2. go for clear side indicators
3. rims are ok for now - but drop it so that the gap is gone
4. de badge whole car
5. change front grill to mugen style one
6. rid off wiper cover and red water nozzles
7. rear stickers are fine but the front honda one is a bit too much
8. colour code side and rear strips to body colour

Just my 2 cents, keep it up though dude, I know you are trying very hard :)

And the person that rear-ends you claiming they couldn't see your tail lights and you having to pay for yours and their repairs.

Not a smart move at all.

It would look so much better with stock tail lights.

Henry, that's the perfect example of how to do it right with minimal cash and mods. Kaotic, take note!

Sell off the those lexus tail lights, buy some mirrors. Dump it. Win.

altho this is a great example of a civic it could do with some nice spoon mirrors and a spoon rear wing and the stock orange side indicators.

Making good progress, Kaotic. Despite whatever the peeps here think you should do to improve it (and I admit I agree with most of it), your car's still a heck of a lot nicer to look at than 80% of the Civics I see out there. Be proud of that. :)

OKAY! Please take off your KAOTIC sticker. We know who you are around the streets LOL.

PLEASE take off that Powered by Honda sticker/badge on the back - I'm pretty sure the entire Australian population knows that it is a Honda by looking that the massive fake RED Type R badge you have on the back. Remember the thread, spot the Fake GTR! You are infact, doing this exact thing (except with a not so cool car in to immitate).

The middle spoiler needs to go.

I aggree with the people that have said leave the skirts and front lip Black to break up the Silver, but remember Paul's Civic IcemaN? Perhaps spray the side and rear mouldings, as well as the bit your rear number plate sits on silver too.

PS: Tinted tail lights + Tinted side indicators = ghey.


(sorry to be so harsh, but this is a classic example where Honda is potrayed as RICE, as Dave Roden says!)

- Rix.

IcemaN
02-01-08, 11:24 AM
yeh rix i do, but kaotics ek is the pre facelift model. i also prefer the unpainted look. If kaotic decides to paint the skirts and molding he sould do it all and go for a clean look. unpainted is way more jdm if you ask me.

at the end of the day though its what kaotic wants, we can suggest till our fingers fall off but its up to the guy with the cash to make it happen.

VTECMACHINE
02-01-08, 11:26 AM

02-01-08, 11:43 AM
You can make a mid-wing look cool.

I'd keep it. Just get standard tail lights, leave the lip and mouldings black, lower it 2" and go easy on the stickers. If you want everyone to know your 'Kaotic' maybe get a smaller one???

Gorilla
03-01-08, 10:36 AM
Hey man, seems like your doing mods to please others, do it for yourself, if you like altezza lights, then keep them.

To join the bandwagon tho, here is Astro's old civic (posted above too), all he did was get those rims that were on a starlet, re-sprayed them for a fresher look (They were already black), Ganador mirrors, and coilovers. Thats it. Works well, simple yet effective right?

there was a "25th ano/silver edition" sticker on the boot b4...i ripped it off only tofind that it took off a chunk of paint as well...hence i stuck the smaller Honda sticker on to cover it up...

i tinted the tail lights so it looks cleaner and to blend it in a bit so its just silver and black all round... plus i didnt tint the break light up the top for a reason!

i saw a few other civics with painted side skirts and thought it looked realy nice and clean...i was gonna do the bumper trim as well but i quite like how the black breaks up the silver...

Suspension is next on the list... buddy clubs or something.... its going to be dropped about 4-4.5cm if not a bit more...

rear wing is going to leave holes hence i cbf to remove it...

and a spoon/mugen front lip and grill to come as well...

like i said that im only having this for a couple of years more b4 i get off my P's... hence im trying not to spend too much more money on it....

but yes dumpage and little things like front lip and grill are to come...

having 69 in your license plate makes everyone aware that you do, infact love to 69, and you want all females and males in society to understand this.

While having "2nv" in the license plate lets everyone know that your car should be envied because it has been lowered on kings springs, and you bought your chrome lenso rims from tempe tyres.

if you get rear ended with those tail lights, irrespective of the conditions - it will be your fault. Insurance company will probably deny the insurance claim and hey presto you have a fucked car, no insurance and a bill from the other guy.

The tint paint makes it harder to see the brake lights and anyone who crashes into the back of your car can argue that had the lights not been tinted - that they would have been able to avoid the accident.

Just buy stock tail lights and a stock sliver boot lid, lower it and its done. I saw your car last night and i quite like it! Oh and loose all those stickers

cars made after a certain year must have 3 break lights. i think it was after 1990 or some thing.
if some one hated you enough or if they needed a reason to get a new front bar they can just rear end your car and you would have to pay. so tinting tail lights =not a smart move.

I don't think such rule exists.

But kaotic, its 100% illegal to have tinted tail lights, go read the can, it says "for offroad or show use only."

you will easily be denied any insurance claim as soon as they see the car.

The rule exists that all cars must have a high mounted stop light to provide additional indication of stopping so that is 3 stop lights, but from what I did research into it as my old car had tinted taillights, it's actually nothing to do with obstruction of a lense or material used, it's the actual level of light emmited from the otherside of the lense. Theoritcally you could have tinted lights if the light emmited was bright enough to comply with the standards... Some recent cars released, esspecially those using LED stop lights do have very dark 'tinted' lenses.

As for Insurance, I think people are kind of blowing that out of context, and the actual circumstances that would be at play for such a negative effect of having such taillights are pretty unlikely. From what I know of tinted taillights, light can still be seen, and is enough to actually indicate to 100% of people they are actually braking, and for someone to turn around and say 'I couldn't see your brake lights' would still be a cop out, and blame still could be placed on them if it wasn't worthwhile to persue with Insurance.

I'd be more inclined to say "I couldn't take my eyes off your KAOTIC sticker and rear ended you"... purposefully or not is up to you.. :P (That's a joke kaotic)

turbo lag...?
errr autech s15's are NA and are quite responsive..

but not worth the money when u can get the turbo for roughly the same price..

Enough said by Serial Killa



Kaotic can't drive turbo as he is on his P plates.

its been a while since i have updated my car.... few new things that i hope you might like:) some of the stuff have taken a while to get or have broken off when i got them but now its all on... i still have to get some stuff or am not sure of getting... the only reason i havent spent more on the car is cause i am waiting to get off my P's to get a new car

New things:
- Ek9 tail lights
- Japanese Springs or some sort
- Mugen Style front lip(Jdm Yard)
- Cold air piping(Still to be installed)

Next to come:
- Mugen or Ek9 front grill
- Mugen/spoon style rear lip??? i saw the one on the EK9 which looked hot!!
- Front and rear camber kit
- powder coat rims
- Front strut bar(Kevs idea)

its a black plastic so yeah it came black:) all i did was spray the screws black so it blends in then sprayed the whole lip with a clear gloss... i ran out of spray so some bits are less shiny lol...


post pics of the custom CAI when fitted!
will do!!!:)


looks very nice.. loving the tails and the front lip.. how long til you get off your P's ? and what car you going to get? im guessing turboooo bit over 1.5 years to go... it all depends on my job when i finish as i might be traveling long distances(high way driving)...if thats the case then ill be getting a Sc400 or the V6 TT...

but i realy want a R32 GTR...only problem is finding a clean one in good working order as a daily/track...unless i work on it as its an old car..

or even working on an 86 with my dad and keeping the civic as a daily till its done..

lots of options but will see when the time comes:)

some updates with the Grill and cai pipe installed:)

still deciding if i should spray the grill silver(Border and not the mesh)?? but for now its staying all black..

i couldnt find anywhere else to mount the cai pipe so its just scooping air from under the bottom... might mount it in the hub at a later stage:)

sorry for the dodgy pics!
