I took off the traction bar, added a tinted brow because no headliner, rewired headlights since one side had high beam on and other was lowbeam, led switch back turn signal for street cred, led relay to prevent hyper flash.

Future goals: chassis mount front splitter, vibrant ultra quiet resonator, rear wing (undecided) update the suspension, retrofit the headlights to projectors, sparco sprint seat, plm seat slider, progress rear sway bar, take out interior, remove mudflaps, possible CTR style grill, wider 15inch wheels or 16s.


that’s a nice coupe, with a HEALTHY parts list

Just an update I didn’t do much but got rid of the garbage LED headlights and went for the higher end halogen bulbs till I retrofit.
Put on my kosei K1s and painted them black.
Bought a vibrant ultra quiet resonator
Finished up wiring the rear speakers and put kenwood 2 way speakers up front.
Added in a wink mirror since the small one won’t do much when I put in my sparco sprint seat.
Removed the tint on the doors and tinted a windshield brow since there isn’t any sun visors
Changed out the rear lowering springs to some temporary ebay springs.
Turn in for the car is better and is more predictable
Now the spring rates are where I want it just 12k front and 8k rear.
Swapped out the lower collars on the eBay coils to run the 8kg instead of the 6kg since on my other civic the rear didn’t want to turn in at the track.


I have more pics of this car when it was first built.


Car looks great so far, keep it coming :+1:

Got a late Christmas gift from a friend. A mono amp and a 4 channel amp and a old school 10inch amp with a custom box. Aside from that the important thing is this carbon fiber license plate holder.
It’s been recleared but that’s okay! Gotta source a carbon hood next to eliminate some weight from the front heavy car.


I wanna say thank you @tech15 for sending me these. Pics from when the car got repainted. Definitely will find parts to make it look like it did when it was repainted. Although might do a 99-00 front to match my 99-00 si rep.

Great to find the paint code for the car and it’s also a step forward for new parts that need to be paint matched.
