  1. Collected my EG6 last night. Paint needs attention but the shell is solid. K20 is out of the coupe for head gasket doing, final drive, 4th 5th and 6th year replacement and diff rebuild. Del Sol VTI arriving next month that I’m planning on robbing the B16 from to go in the blue EK shell I aquired with the unit. Business insurance in place for my unit. B16 swapped EK in for an engine rebuild over the next few weeks, EF Civic B swap is building up component wise and a few K series boxes to do. All go!
  2. Yeah I like to keep my books in order. I paid off 18-19s tax year last month and I’ve got money aside for a good lump toward my payments on account for the current tax year. Itll be a month or two before I’m working out of it so I’ve time to kit it out and arrange my liability and business/trade insurance. All very exciting though!
  3. Ignore the clutter, that’s being removed, but as of Saturday this will found the beginnings of my own little business venture. It’s finally becoming a reality. (Civic in the corner is going nowhere. I saw it, offered money and bought it, predictably).
  4. I like the Monty Race on my 26”. No punctures (yet), super grippy, springy but surprisingly stable on off camber/rough stuff.
  5. It is a bit marmite but I think I like it. The bloke that passed was a collector by all acounts and had some cool motors there that have subsequently sold. Elans, 1275GT Minis among others. The family said the Civic was an odd ball purchase for him being much more “modern” than the rest of his collection but it was the condition and mileage that impressed him, even back then 14+ years ago. The very same thing I’m as impressed by, if not more so.
  6. Super clean. Photos do not do it justice at all. Like a time warp. Just have to resist “Ruining” it with mods now.
  7. I’ve somewhat unsurprisingly bought yet another Civic. Absolute gem. Sub 25k Miles, has done less than 3k miles in 13 years. Garaged all its life. Utterly mint and completely original.
  8. Trialtech High Rise are probably one of the more conservative offerings now but they’re bloody comfortable.
  9. Made a start on the box tonight. New bearings and speed sensor drive pressed on and 5.1 crown wheel torqued down. Bearings hopefully to land on Friday morning so I can shim it all up and have it assembled in time to fit on Saturday. Had the cam cover off the K24 this afternoon too and it’s impressively clean under there which looks promising.
  10. Looks cool that Dan. Almost looks like it belongs behind a bar as a drinks/glass store, not a garage.
  11. That’s a fair head of hair! Congrats mate
  12. Picked up what will be the new heart for the Coupe this weekend. Its a K24a3 as removed from an Accord Type S. I’m planning to rebuild this as a “forged” high compression NA engine that should make somewhere in the region of 270-290bhp though the magic figure I’m aiming for is 300 or near as damn it, while doing so on unleaded. Also got chance to get across to Scunthorpe and remove the head from a friends high compression B18C. He’s only just fitted the engine and unfortunately he’s been met with a plethora of oil leaks and a rapidly pressurising cooling system. Cue one spurious, and failed head gasket. I’ve got a rather nice gearbox to build for another EP3 this week with an M Factory differential and a 5.1 Final Drive I’m looking forward to getting stuck into too.
  13. I bought the EG The asbo cannon exhaust is not included.
  14. Summer should see the purchase of an Integra too
  15. Quick update on what I’ve been up to with regards to Automobiles. As some had seen on the angry thread my agreement with th gaffer went tits up with regards to working on the Hondas after hours. All being well I’m on the final stretch to my own unit now, but in the mean time I’ve very kindly been allowed the use of another garage on evenings and weekends to continue my work. The chap with the Civic Jordan I look after came forward asking for a K swap. Gathered the appropriate pieces of the puzzle, and got it done over a weekend. The B16 from the Jordan was sold onto another local chap who asked me to fit it for him too. The Jackson Supercharged CRX is back for a health check and alignment. I have another K swap Civic that is awaiting a 3rd gear synchro, an EP3 waiting for an LSD and shorter final drive fitting and two B series Civics for turbo converions and one engine rebuild. Im going to view a lovely japanese import Civic EG6 SiR 2 tomorrow evening as a treat to myself. I still need to break the UK CRX Del Sol VTi I have too. Things are looking up.
