now that sir is an insult! lol

ive made up my final list of plans for the car..

1.45mm eaibach springs
2.chrome fuel lid
3.lip boot spoiler in gloss black
4.raceing beat back box
5.deep dish gloss black alloys with a chrome lip
6.gloss black wrapped windscreen surrond

then she will be perfect in my eyes, i would keep the standars alloys but they are graphite but have gloss black center caps and that really annoys me for some reason!

Look for chroming companies that can re-chrome it for you  :)

Sam, the reason i was questioning the chrome is because you already have a nice contrast.
The white and black looks good, adding chrome would be a silly idea IMO. I wouldn't even go for Black Chrome.

Alot of the Civic owners (EP) used to fit carbon fuel caps, and they are the most pathetic thing ever!! They are pointless and stand out like a mangled sore thumb.


On yours i would leave the fuel cap body colour. It would stick out and Chrome fuel caps are very Max Power!

No no!!!

anyyy ways eibachs are done, took me about 5hrs to fit them "this included me fannying around and doing other bits and bobs at the same time"

any way what are they like? well so far the rear of the car has gone down from 68cm "from ground to wheel arch" to 64cm, so its gone down 40mm at the rear, where as the front has gone down from 67cm "from ground to wheel arch" to 65cm so only 20mm at the front so far, but this was only after about 10miles of driving, so what are they like? well ride is just about as good as it was be for, turn in is now much better, alot less dive when you slam on the anchors and you can tell what the cars going to do now as apposed to just guessing if your arse end was going to slide out like you had to be for.. bad points? yeah the rear wheels sit with a fair bit of negative camber "looks good but it will chew through my tyres!

now i just need to wait for 500 miles or so for the springs to settle in and to get the 4 wheel geo done

ill post up some pics when i have some good ones tomorrow!
