Hey everyone! Some of you have seen my coupe on here, but I have been in need of a daily driver. I picked up this hatch yesterday. Its bone stock other than LS seats and the paint. Paint is a professionally done flat black with some silver metallic. You can barely see the silver metallic part unless its in direct sunlight and the car is spotless haha. But anyways, its a 1996 Honda Civic DX, and 128k miles on its original D16Y7. It has a certifit front bumper (hence why it sags a little) but I will probably fix that today.

And heres a shot of my coupe for those who haven't seen it:
http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff217/savethe-sohc/9-1.jpg

So anyways, I'm going to do some basic mods to this, but nothing crazy. The plan is to finish my coupe and probably sell it, then get another beater honda for a daily, then really build the hatch.

Let me know what you think!
C&C welcome

omg!!!!!!!!

:)

swap everything into the hatch FTW!!!

Road Pirate

Haha it has crossed my mind to swap everything off the coupe to the hatch, and all the stock parts from the hatch to the coupe and use the coupe as a daily...buuuutttt...I want to go a different direction with the hatch if I ever start building it. But we'll see :D

Why sell the coupe?

Road Pirate
04-26-2009, 12:16 PM
I basically just want to get a new paint job then most likely sell it so I can start on another project.

No k swap just yet, but it has crossed my mind ;)

moo shoo
04-27-2009, 09:57 PM
You should put thought into the k24/k20 hybrid the hatch. It would be sex on wheels.

Road Pirate
04-29-2009, 09:39 AM
Haha yeah that would be pretty freakin dope. Well, I'm most likely ordering my suspension in a little bit, and getting some buddy club wheels from a friend. Only other things are getting an EK4 lip and a wing, (not sure which...most likely a ductbill) and thats it!
I swapped out clusters yesterday, so I actually have a tach. First mod ftw..haha.

04-29-2009, 05:34 PM
i know if u ever mod it it will be tits...

Road Pirate
04-29-2009, 10:26 PM
Thanks man :thumbup:
As said above, I'm going to get a suspension setup, some wheels, an EK4 front lip and a ductbill wing, and call it a day. It is my daily so I have to keep it practical. The y7 will stay in there for as long as it can :)

Well, got some random goodies for the car. Nothing crazy.
OEM Honda Access window visors
OEM Honda antenna block off plate
OEM UK EK amber clock
OEM EK Air vent pocket
And a fiberglass spoon duckbill.

Thats it for now, most of the parts wont go on the car until I get the rest of the stuff. I'll post pics as they come in :thumbup:

***noob questions***********

1) How much was the antenna block off plate
2) Do you no longer have radio? or an antenna??

Road Pirate
04-30-2009, 11:33 PM
Antenna block off plate was like 20$ shipped, and the car doesnt even have a radio in it haha, but I have the same blockoff plate on my coupe. All I did was shove the antenna downwards, and put the plate over it. I still get reception if I wanted to listen to the radio :thumbs up

Good pick up on the hatch. id say swap a few things out of the coupe and sell it. you arent going to get your money back anyway for the stuff you put in it. looking forward to see what you do with the hatch.

Road Pirate
05-12-2009, 04:37 PM
I will be getting some cheap rotas or even si's to put on the coupe and take off the kosei's. The J's canards will come off, along with the ASR bar, beaks bar, LCA's and sway bars. The Ksports will stay. The wing will come off because its a rare gem I want to keep. But! Thats about it haha. I'll try and get 5 or 6 grand out of it, but nothing more. I'm not too picky.

Most of the shit being taken off will go on the hatch after its lowered, except the canards and wing of course.

Sidemarkers and bumper pole installed...yeah the bumper pole is too far in, should be out on the corner, but I wasn't thinking. And I dont have the bracket for the EK4 pole, so mine just goes straight up. Oh well, looks good until I get some SiR bumpers!

UPDATE! Picked up some Buddy Club P1 racing wheels from my buddy Gabe with Falken Ziex tires. 2 of the tires have great tread left, the other probably about 34 -40% tread left. Also picked up his buddy club lug nuts. All for an amazing deal! These will not go on until I get some suspension, but figured I'd show off some shitty pics. Sorry, my garage has crappy lighting lol.

Haha, that was the cluster that was in my coupe back in like '05, i thought it was cool. hahah.

Suspension goodies are being ordered today..

For the few people who look at this thread, keep an eye out for some 96-00 EX front LCA's so I can rock a sway bar.

Thanks.

Thanks man! Yeah I didn't like the car on the buddy clubs, so I sold them and slapped on the Kosei's. I didn't like the stock amber crap, so I HAD to get some CTR's or SiR's. :)

And the tailgate spoilers were 220$...pretty expensive for some pieces of rubber that may fly off on the highway, so they're back in they're box :lol:

Yeah man LOL, too good of a base to keep stock :)
And nah, my friend works at Honda, and he used crome, and does his own tuning. He will be tunning it :)


At Front Range? I'll have to see what he can do for you. I really like the idea of Neptune RTP though.

Road Pirate

Yeah he works at Front Range.
Neptune is all worth the money, but I don't have that kind of cash, therefore Bergin is doing it for 200$ haha.

Small update...no more fogs and new mirrors. Trying to get me a first molding lip next...

Fogs will probably go on and come off all the time. I like them a far as nighttime driving, but the cleanliness of the car without them is ftw lol.

It may go all motor actually, I want to sell the turbo setup I have and do a sick NA build. Haha, I change my mind every day.

Anyways, for the lastfew days I'm daily-drivin the hatch since the coupe is down, figured I'd save the front end because its getting torn up by rock chips and such, so the complete nose mask is on!

Dont have two wooden blocks, or a vice? Use an old wheel! Shit worked perfect for me.
