    EDIT: UPDATES ON LAST FEW PAGES

    okay so this is going to be my build thread. i own a 94 civic si coupe (ej1). to start things off, i picked up my car last august, for $1100. came with 17 inch konig rims, 1 piece halo's, swapped d16y8, neuspeed strut bar and rear lower tie bar, pioneer deck, infiniti tweeters, and all other speakers are pioneer. for another $250 i got a brand new set of witner tires on steelies (michelin x-ice). also its been re-painted acura el black or something like that.. heres some pics of when i first got it:

    4x4 status

    i found out the car needed new welds in the rear rocker panels, 2 wheel bearings, new brakes, and a windshield. i took it into my shop and did all that minus the windshield. while i was in there i unndercoating and oil sprayed it, painted the calipers red, re did all the brakes, and put a civic emblem on the trunk.

    [​IMG]

    next i decided i wanted to paint the interior. so i ripped the interior apart and re-painted some of the panels blue.

    after that i found myself a nice kicker solobarric sub and alpine amp, and wired them up.

    [​IMG]

    so next i decided to slowly start my modding process. first i cleaned up my engine bay and painted my valve cover gold with polished letters. over the next couple months i ordered some nice goodies. first came an aem short ram intake, and a megan racing cat back exhaust system, along with a hi-flow cat.

    once i got that done, i had made up my mind on going for the jdm look. so i swapped them ricey konigs for some nice gsr blades. (i dont have pics of them on the car because i got my snows on)

    [​IMG]

    once i had traded them, i begin my exterior de-ricing. i quickly removed the 1 piece projectors and put my oem headlights on, but not before i made them black housing

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    so i bought myself some oem fogs and wired them up. i then decided to make my oem corners armber, which i just finished yesterday but have no pics of yet. also repainted my wiper arms black (will have pics soon)

    then i knew it was time to drop my car.. long overdue. so i ordered some function and form type ones and some polished rear lca's.

    [​IMG]

    i have no pics of the car as it sits with the coils on now, but will soon once i get it washed.

    last week i traded my old halo's for an oem hood bra, so ill have to get you guys pics of that too :roll:

    in the last 7 months my car has came pretty far IMO and ive saved a lot of money on labour by doing it all myself. i will have some updated pics up soon.

    future mods:
    -jdm window visors (sides and maybe rear too)
    -jdm 50/50 tails
    -fix the minor rust... then a paint job
    -either going to re-build my d series and boost it, or pick up a b20 vtec and build it all motor

    the last two will be in a year or so when i can save some cash up.
    sorry for the crappy cell phone pics btw. lmk what you guys/gals think and shoot me some ideas on what i should do next. =)

    lol well i was going to go all black, but didnt want to bother dying everything and all, so for now i just did it blue until i grow out of that phase, and then ill just pick up all oem black interior and a jdm center console

    edit: like i painted it while i was still 16 and thought the whole painted interior would look nice plus the parts i painted were in bad condition, some were cracked etc so i fixed them up and painted em blue. now that i want the more clean look i kinda regret it, but hell, maybe ill try and do a type r interior imitation except ill do black and blue. (itll be type b :lol:)
