Not quite finished but coming along. Have other priorities for a month or two then I’ll get the fender fitting a little better (made in Taiwan and damaged corner from shipping) and pull them off to lay down some Tafetta White
2006 Civic Coupe EX
First thank you for all the information on this site. Its been helpful in finding the best options without wasting money.
This is my sons car. I'm an old guy. Been doing car audio, alarms and modifications since the 90's. I've been helping my son customize his Civic as he gets the money. Added Si spoiler (keeping lip spoiler as I don't feel like repairing the holes at this time), new wheels and tires, full audio system, along with several little things. We plan to do full exhaust and coil overs next. I'll have him setup his on account on here.
How's it going, recently purchased my really clean Taffeta White FG2. I'm the 3rd owner well maintained over all, but has bad clutch, so got it for a steal. Bought from recently married college student, his grandpa gave it to him as graduation gift, garage kept.
New to Hondas. Wanted a reliable small car that I could chuck around on VA backroads. Driven everything from the ST twins, to the Cooper S, to the GTI, fell in love after driving friend's built and stock FG2s. Already done Hybrid Racing shift cable and base bushings. Probably going to do camber bolts in the front to dial out some understeer. Hopefully doing Hondata to get rid of the rev hang but otherwise leaving it stock. Been too busy driving it, wheels are caked in brake dust and the rest of the car is half brown so here's a photo of when I picked it up at the beginning of the month.
Start a thread but yeah I'm working on my engine bay as of late. I'm pretty minimal so I'm trying to figure out what I can remove safely, once I have the parts I don't work on tucked I'll start painting and polishing. I've been slowly removing the corrosion from the entire block as I'm under the car, so the bottom of my motor is REALLY shiny, but I need to work on the top.
P2R TB Gasket would look nice here and replace that trashed TB gasket(the coolant eats it over time), but I don't know if the typhoon would fit next to the brake reservoir then... I have that intake, it does move around a bit, so maybe.
