Don't know if you guys remeber me or not, but my member page was erased. Alittle backround info: '04 civic ex, I was into the show scene, and decided the f*** with body kits, and this is my outcome. Here's a little update on the car. (All interior, engine, Audio upgrades stayed the same)

2/3 months ago:
Full Bomex Body kit, Projectors, Led Tails, Custom Exhaust, Ebay Grill, Eibach Prokit, Red underglow, 4-bulb Strobe Lights, 18" Bt Shift Rims. Etc....
http://i115.photobucket.com/albums/n293/CIVIC-Brian/wall.jpg

http://i115.photobucket.com/albums/n293/CIVIC-Brian/rear-1.jpg

Now:
Stock bumpers, CF Type R Front lip, Type R Rear Lip, Type A Sides (Painted to match) Skunk 2: Pro-S Coilovers (dropped to 4.25" clearance all around), Control Arms, Rear Camber Kit. DIY BOH, Stock Tails, Greddy Evo 2 Exhaust, CF Exhaust Heat Shield (For an EVO 8) (Needed-stated to warp the rear lip). 16" Rota Auto X, Smoked Housing Fogs. Sold all strobes and neons. I'm very happy with the outcome of everything. The only thing I have to do is get a new grille. Critiques are welcome.

Basically it was bone stock when I started workin on it in 2004. The I did the kit thing and all that mess for about 3yrs., then to the current state.

TIres are 205/45/16 I think that a 50 series would look to meaty on the car.

I like how you went back to the same place to take the pics lol

There was actually a point of going back there. LIke a before and after shot.

where did u get that heat shield?

Brian13
08-11-2008, 03:53 PM
heat sheild is sick, good work making that fit :thumbup:
Thanks, It took alittle while, 1 hour or 2, and had to dremel the rear lip out alittle, because the lip bottom got warped from the exhaust. But like I said the shield is made for an Evo. So I was happy with the results.

where did u get that heat shield?
Some Ebay store only like $50-$60. I took about a week and a half to get, but actually was good quaility. SO was worth it. Search Carbon Exhaust shield...i think the name was carbonlux*inc

And thanks everyone for all the comments, as well.

Looks good. I'm also liking the heat shield as well. I've never seen that done before especially on a Civic, but it looks really good on there.

A. On the old kit I had about a 4" clearance in the front with the 18"s on it. Only had the Eibach Pro-kit installed about 1" drop all around. Still used to scrap the 'ish out that thing.
B. The only rubbing issues were because of the +38 offset on the 18"x 7.5 rim and that was only the rear.
C. The car was like that for about 3.5yrs. So If you want more pics of that, I definitly have alot. But as it is now, I only have a few.

Thaks man, i absolutley love it.
The drop on the old set up was only an inch.. I have 17's on mine now. Im just worried about the rear bumper. everything else since polyurethane im pretty much chill about. Both set ups to me looks great.

what audio upgrades do you have?

Thanks, all audio upgrades are in my garage (pic)
Took 3 weekends to build, sounds good enough for me, hits good. I don't need to be heard a few blocks away. The "H" Actually is my truck light at night time (Lights up). I got the Idea for the boxes from Alpine, they did a almost identical design for the Civic Tour in '03-'04. THen I put alittle extra on it.

tint your windows
I have been debating on that since I bought the car in early '04. I've tinted my 1st '04 and 6 months later it got totalled, so a little liery on it. (Superstitious) Plus I kinda like the "Fish Bowl" look

Thanks everyone, for the comments

HEY, DUDE I JUST BOUGHT THE TYPE R FRONT LIP & I WAS JUST WONDERING IF IT WILL LOOK GOOD WITH OR WITHOUT SIDESKIRTS?

THANX BRO....

BTW: THIS IS GOING TO SOUND CRAZY, BUT THIS CERTAIN TR FRONT LIP I BOUGHT FROM "KAZESPEED" ON EBAY HAS A PICTURE ADVERTISMENT OF YOU'RE EXACT CIVIC. NO JOKE BRO. U SHOULD CHECK IT OUT WHEN YA GET THE TIME.

LATER!

Sides and rear lips are all personal preference. Me personally, I like sides especially with a front lip. To me, it give the car alittle more balance, and flow.

And about the AD, I mentioned that before. I got the CF Lip a while ago, and the asked if I could send them a pic, and they gave me 20% off.

Actually I didn't waste anyhing. I did what I did with the car when I wanted to. Yeah I liked the bodykit style back in the day, then I "grew up" and my taste changed. I've never listened to anyone about what to do to the car. Alot, of my friends wanted me to keep the bodykit and such.

So, a little update. I got rear ended alittle bit last night. Dude "looked away for a second" and whammy. Alittle chip on the rear taillight, and need a new rear bumper. IDK, I'll see what I can do. Rear lip is fine, and everything else was fine. Well, here's the result.
