well i figure its time to start my build thread, i picked up this car for 3500 bucks a couple months ago with 87k miles on it. its in need of paint, some body work etc....but thats why this is a build thread...right? i will update this thread as things happen...
(Updated 7/1/09)

So have you done any body work or paint?

Because so far, it's just putting parts on a dented car. Not bad, mind you. Just .... not a restore or build.

So youre posting comments about not making progress on a 3 day old build thread? Not bad,mind you. Just...not helpful or needed.

No i havent, im doing that this summer after all the cold/sand/salt goes away. so its not a restore yet, true. but it is still a build. is it not?
Its a lengthy process, besides i cant go back and change the name of the thread in a few months when i start to restore...but thanks for the useful input.

I don't know. I just see a lot of "build" threads that go nowhere. Lowering your car and putting wheels on it isn't a build thread. :what:

To me a build thread is engine, exterior, suspension..thing's that'll take some time.

What the hell guys he just started this thread 3 days ago, relax. Rolla said it himself, it will take some time. I can vouch for this guy, he knows what he's doing and it's his car so if he wants to start off by doing suspension and wheels, so what? You both are acting as if he were some kid who just wants to look cool with an intake and wheels and a drop. I know what his plans are for this coupe. He will be doing it right, in and out, and It will not dissappoint.

i see where you guys are coming from, id never usually own knock off anything, if anyone comes across a legit mugen cover id love to make the switch..but they are beyond few and far between..for now it gives me a chance to rock the wrinkle red and rep mugen at the same time

I'm not Jesus, but I do fail to see where it says, "build dedicated to mymmeryloss" so your post holds no significance whatsoever. You aren't a baller just because you don't buy a knockoff valve cover, let alone any knockoff parts. Get off your high horse. You are a member of a CIVIC website, just like everyone else here.

i see where you guys are coming from, id never usually own knock off anything, if anyone comes across a legit mugen cover id love to make the switch..

There you have it. Pat I suggest selling the knockoff and just rocking a stock one until you can find an authentic Mugen cover.

nah, i plan to hold on to it for now, my build will speak for itself and the valve cover will be the least of anyones worries

cool. this is very cool. ive had my civic for a year now and barely have done nehtign to jsut got osme whels lca subframe sway bar. was thinkging of posting a buidl threat to encourage me to keep working hard. but part time 18 just finishing school. my build would b to slow...so thank you for being my encourgage ment. cool civics keep me going. but 1 thing why do ppl give ppl so much shit... i almost though that some of th eppl here drive jacked up trucks adn v8 muscle car... so there for we are all the same we drive civic. we all should encourge each other, rather then put each other down.... sorry fro the rant.. jsut bugs me b/c it makes me not want to post pics of my car.. but g/w keep it up look forward to see then new shyt added :))

great man, i couldnt be happier....well i could, if the fronts would go lower, they are adjusted all the way down, but thats buddy clubs fault, not yours, haha=)

have my rear disc conversion and front SI disc conversion sitting at home, along with all new poly bushings for EVERYTHING, so much work to do, not enough money haha..... projector retrofit also in the works

side note: feels VERY strange to have a car that looks good and is still slow as a dog turd, oh well, doing things backwards this time around...
