hey guys whats up this is my very very slow build for my 95 honda civic coupe auto
a little history
got the car in 2009 very clean and very stock lol

all the car had on it was some 17 in rims pretty nice but too big lol

bout 2 weeks after it was stolen after i took it for its first legit ride, walked out the store and it was gone :(
3 weeks go by car was found no rims radio or battery

the car sat for a good month until we were able to get new steelies and tires and a battery
after that the car was on the road again =)



not knowing too much about cars just what my friends told me i got a cheap intake and filter just for better air flow
some time later on the radiator went out causing the headgasket to blow and warp the head :(

had the head refinished and fixed

from then on then it blew 2 more times one from the water pump and a nother from a broken water hose

since then the engine has ran like a champ
i kept her maintained
washed waxed keppin fresh


i even waxed her real well and thru on some 17s that didnt fit idk wat i was thinkin lol



i even did ricer stuff like a ebay type r emblem idk i was young lol


then in 2011 i got into an accident with a truck crushed in my front end :(





thankfully it wasnt that bad i was able to slower down enought to just bearly hit the radiator

car was with my mechanic for a good month so he could check out any damage to the engine. luckily there wasnt any and then i bought a whole new front end, fenders bumper hood lights radiator everything lol

the day i brought her home with her new blacked out front end lol



more pix of new front lol



after a while i got some nice fogs for it =)



painted the covers black





super bright



just after the fog install i some how burnt out my main relay and my ecu haha idk how so dont ask but she sat for a week or two then got a new ones and was on the road =)

around mid 2013 shestarted to get rusty and i mean bad rust in the front so i decided to just get her painted

before

waiting to b sanded smoothed

Damn man. Rough luck with that thing, but props for hangin in there. Looks pretty good so far. I would have just painted the hood also, but to each their own.

What are the plans?

May I inquire as to where you got those Driving Lights? I was just looking last night on where to mount some Driving Lights and my first thought was those plates but didn't feel like drilling holes lol.

Nice car btw =) Nice to see someone bring a wrecker back to life instead of just dumping it

testing to see if it works and keeps its memory

thanks man The car is my baby I don't think I would've been able to part with her lol the hood that how I had it before I like the black so I just kept it lol
Plans as of now: suspension the ride is gettin pretty rough so I'm think of gettin all brand new coil overs and prolly lower it a bit then maybe engine work, headers exhaust simple bolt on stuff it's my daily so I don't want to do too much that I won't be able to drive it long run maybe engine swap turn into manual lol

They are good depending on how you use them (as are most things) If you want them just to slam the car as low as possible, don't waste your time because you'll ruin them. If you read the info that comes with them and stick to it, you'll be fine. They aren't meant for racing, and they aren't meant to slam cars.
