Updated as of 9/11/2009...but there are pics on pretty much on every page

Welp I finally picked up a new project (since I sold my 91 Si)...1999 Civic Ex Coupe *Black*. The car is in great shape with 107,XXX miles on the body. No rust anywhere and it was painted only 6 months ago..Flamenco Black Pearl...looks very fresh. Im very happy with it, although I do miss my hatch...

Most of you probably remember my old hatch but here's a refresher pic...

Yea, i agree. Well the week I bought it, I swapped in a jdm b18c w/ type R ecu. As of now it has intake, 4-1 header, and exhaust. I havent decided what else Im going to do motor wise. As much as I would love to boost it, I think Im just gonna do some fuel upgrades, cams, and cam gears..not positive yet tho

Does look like a good solid car...

Thanks!!

yea i was happy to find such a clean coupe. as for the headlights, thats exactly what i was planning on doing. I do already have black housing headlights on there as you can see in the pic, but they are a little old and one of them fogs up. but i was also thinking about just like crystal clear/ chrome CTR style heads..what you think?

looking good man. Motor shots?

thanks man! yea ill snap a few pics of the bay tomorrow after class and after i clean the bay..and ill post asap

OH i know!!! one of my not so smart friends said he would paint my valve cover while i was under my car working on my exhaust. i ASSUMED he was going to do a good job and take it OFF. but he just sprayed it while it was still on the motor. and know one else was around to smack him cuz i wasnt aware of him doing it cuz i was underneath the car lol. i was kinda pissed and it looks kinda shitty so thats why i ordered a OEM Type R one..so now i just have to try and find something to remove the paint off the head

Welp, its been a lil while since ive posted on my build up thread and saw a few askin about any updates so heres some update...

-Got some of my CTR parts installed (strut bar and boot)
-Purchased a brand new OEM Si front lip
-Purchased yellow fogs (grey bezels ftw!)

Ill snap some pics asap once i get the new things installed. Ive been real busy with school lately b/c im doing graphic design and i graduate this spring so classes are kickin my ass.

Im going to do a mini-shoot once we get some decent weather. We just got like 13inches of snow over the weekend.

Oh and Sam!! about the HX's..i have a lil bit of bad news...slid into a curb in the snow, not hard tho. It just curbed the back driver side one, but not too bad at all and nothings bent. But i was still so upset :cry: lol. Wonder if it could be sanded down a lil bit? But then Id have to respray it and I probably couldnt make it come out the way you did.

Oh really? Thats funny...is he local? How'd ya find him? I'll def let you know, but most likely I'll be keeping it.

Insurance investigator came out to the house today and wrote up and estimate and a check. We can't get the hood open so when I take it to Honda's Collision Center they'll do some work and then whatever damage is done under the hood, they will just bill the insurance company.

I'm looking around for an OEM hood, bumper, fenders, and headlights, that way i'll be able to save money off the check they gave me and pocket some cash. On the estimate they have down $184 for just a brand new driver side headlight. I know i can find used, good condition ones for cheap. So if anyone knows of some parts I can pick up from someone let me know (especially you Mark)...as long as they are in good condition and oem, the color doesn't matter.

Yep! As soon as you sent me those links...like 10 minutes later I bought one of them lol. Thanks again for forwarding your findings haha...and the price wasn't bad at all. I found another one on some canadian forum and the guy wanted like $175. I was thinkin "screw that".

But anyways, I was planning on putting my Si cd player in where the acura tape deck is and then getting the double din JDM block off plate.

that interior looks pretty good! Where and for how much did you get that carpet if you don't mind me asking? PM me and let me know if you can plz. I've been thinking about a black carpet and it seems as though you have the light gray interior like i do and it looks good.
That center console is pretty cool too but it does look kinda awkward with the tape deck. Personaly, i would put in a Navi system up top and a pocket in the bottom, or maybe keep the stereo and add the tape deck on top and put the pocket in the bottom. Two pockets might look kinda wierd but then again its probably the most usefull.

You will have a PM. My interior is the dark gray though, not light gray...but black goes with just about anything. As far as the console...I did consider a nav unit or monitor of some sort for the dual din section. But I think Ill just use that money for other things and keep it like it is. The Acura tape deck is just there until I find another cubby.

I'm pretty content with it. I use to not like it at all, but got it from a friend for $10 and it's a real Mugen. I have a Spoon knob I'm going to be putting on though.

paint looks good

Thank you sir! Yep still gotta get my Si lip on there...going to get the mounting hardware from the stealership. I figured buying the lip brand new in the box, would come with hardware, but evidently not lol. I know the mounting kit is a lil pricey, but want it to be legit and secure.

After that, I have one more surprise...then I will be getting new wheels. I wanted to get some ballin wheels, but don't want to risk them on the crappy roads here.

I'm debating between :

- gold Rota GT3's w/ polished lip or
- gold Rota J-SPL's with polished lip

in 16's of course. Any other suggested wheel style, brand, color is highly welcome! :lol:

Nice job, its sure has gave me ideas to go with mine. I have not had my 97 EX coupe long so not much done as of yet (also college football season too). However today i traded the 17 chrome rims that that i had on it that were heavy as hell and not too nice looking for a set of bronze OEM ones like you have. Traded the guy even i just like the OEM stuff so much more. Were do you get most of your parts from? I hate eGay more than you know and wont deal with them so thats not an option for me. Oh and mine is black too :)
