Right well here is a lil update after the weekend and past few days! sorry for the poor quality of pics and dirty car!





First the ramair induction kit was fitted ......



Then the wind deflectors ........



Then we fitted my new brake caliper as the old one had seized, and set about painting the calipers cadbury purple (they look slightly pink in the picture but they are not lol)



Then when trying to fit the lowering springs we snapped a bolt ...... OOPS!



But the springs are now finally fitted, I will get a picture once it has settled, I have also de-badged the rear, and on friday im getting window tints and black vinyl on the roof :)

All sounds like good plans :) You aiming to keep this long term?
The calipers are neatly done, what a lovely PINK :D

update - my wheel colour choice has changed, think im going to go with white!

So I have just ordered all the spray paint to do the wheels ...... so pictures will follow in the next week or 2.

Having a steering wheel re-trim next wheel as well, black leather with red stitching and a red ring at the top of the steering wheel!

As i only got the windows tinted not the roof vinyl wrapped - I will be ordering gloss black vinyl in the next couple of weeks, and also some HID's!

Still waiting for the log book :( so no private reg plate on yet!

Also had a bee clean :)

Right little update ......

Still waiting on my wheels - reason being because they are being sprayed white, and i heard rumours that white wheels dis-colour quickly (go yellow) I bought some heat proof lacquer to use. Turns out the heat proof lacquer turns the wheel a yellow-ish colour when applied anyway! so they need sanding down and spraying with normal lacquer!

Got my new steering wheel from Royal steering wheels http://royalsteeringwheels.com/
Im very happy with it, I would recommend them to anyone!

Old Steering wheel:



New Steering wheel:





My order was: Civic Type -R EP3 - thicker, perforated sides, smooth top/bottom + red stripe at 12 o'clock , Red stitching

Also managed to get my private reg transfered!



So next step is get my wheels sorted, thinking of buying an unsilenced mid pipe and keeping the back box standard now as well!
