BUILDS: My Civic

Well today started…horrendously. The exhaust on my Civic gave up the ghost on my way to work and I had no way of getting home. Luckily I managed to get a lift and spent the rush hour traffic sat behind a gorgeous FD3S RX-7 that I’ve seen in the area a few times now.

SHOOT: Salford Quays

Organised a bit of an impromptu photo session tonight at Salford Quays with some mates as I was already in the area. The Quays is quite an odd place but there are loads of great photo taking opportunities. This was my first chance to try and take some quality night time photos as I rarely get the chance to shoot in such a great location with more than one car. I think they came out ok but I’m sure I’ll get better with practice.

BUILDS: My Civic

Got a few things done today, mainly just odd jobs that needed sorting like fitting my rear lip and cleaning the car for the first time in at least a month. I also managed to take a look at my exhaust after it got damaged due to greeting a speed bump with force. Turns out the back pipe has split from the bracket that mounts it to the cat…whoops. I’ve still not managed to track down a second hand cat-back system so I had to do a bit of a bodge to to hold it together for the next few days as the noise was getting unbearable. Tin foil, some Halfords exhaust putty and a hose clip and I’ve got a quiet exhaust again!

Also took a few pictures while the car was clean for once:

BUILDS: My Civic

After a hectic day of driving from Manchester to London and back via Birmingham I’d finally managed to get my hands on my new wheels and brake conversion. Now I just need to clean everything up and get it fitted…once I’ve figured out how to mount 4×100 wheels on 4×114.3 hubs…!

BUILDS: My Civic

Spent this afternoon in the body shop with Andy spraying up my smooth front bumper, front and rear lips, mirrors and EK9 grill and I also picked up a D16Z6 intake manifold while I was at it. On Monday I’ve got to drive down to London to pick up my wheels and then stop off at Birmingham on the way back to pick up my brake conversion…I think I’m finally making progress again.

RANDOM: Life Is Short

Sorry to be depressing…but this happened on Boxing Day literally a couple of minutes from my house.

A large amount of my friends were good mates with them and, while I didn’t know them personally, the pain this has caused for their families and friends can be felt throughout the local area.

Just think twice next time you exercise your right foot in the snow and ice that is currently covering the roads all over the UK.
