    Hello everyone I would like to share with you My second Build, This time I am doing everything right so this will be a slow thought out process. I will be doing a auto to manual conversion as well as a B18b1 swap into this car. I will also be doing some JDM parts installs and hopefully if things go well a full suspension install.


    This is "EJWONE' a 1993 Civic Ex Coupe

    So here He is when Ej1Rider owned him.

    [​IMG]

    Here He is on the trailer going home.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here he is the first and last time for a while on the street with his gurl Elsie!

    [​IMG]

    Now the build begins, here are the before shots

    Crossed Drilled and Slotted Rotors came with it but there was this horrible noise when driving sounded like a bad axle, well it ended up being loose lug nuts and braking system. So I got 4 bad lug studs on the pass front.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I am taking the rotors to work with me tomorrow to resurface them I will then reinstall them on the car and prep it for the motor swap and conversion.

    Stay Tuned!

    ::**UPDATE 29 JULY 06**::

    Ok so today I went to work at 7 this morning and I got out at 4 I came home and started to work on the cars.

    SO here is how it begins!

    [​IMG]

    Now what?
    [​IMG]

    Use the Gun and take off the axle nut
    [​IMG]

    Here is the right hand side wiring and everything but the motor mounts cleared out so it can be pulled
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    power steering pump disconnected from the motor brackets and everything out of the way getting it cleared so I can just drop it out!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Thats all for now as I am tired and Chrissy is too maybe tomorrow we will work on it some more.


    Stay Tuned!

    UPDATED 30 JULY 06

    Ok so I got up this morning and I did not have plans to do anything with the cars today. Chrissy went to church and I was tired and stayed in bed well I got restless and got up got ready and went out side. I looked at the green coupe over and over again and I looked at what I had left to do.

    It was not much just the drivers side axle and then the motor mounts so I got to it and I got it like this.

    Up Up and away!
    [​IMG]

    Rollin to her standby spot
    [​IMG]

    Look Ma its empty
    [​IMG]

    Powered By Dina!
    [​IMG]

    Now to this!!!
    [​IMG]

    More Progress:

    drivers side torque mount removed
    [​IMG]

    AC Compressor, condensor, fans and power steering removed
    [​IMG]

    right side all disconnected except for mounts
    [​IMG]

    Zero, Zip, Nada!
    [​IMG]

    Here is the setup as it sits, I want to Thank Chrissy for supporting me and my Dad and Daughter for setting up the tent thingy and getting me water, the sun has taken its toll on me and has won for today.

    So I wont touch the car again until maybe friday or saturday after work.

    The Engine Bay is a little Dirty so I am gonna really Clean it up and Possibly do a Wire Tuck and maybe one or 2 other things.
    [​IMG]

    This is all for Now I have to save up the money to get the Motor Mounts and Pay Billy Back so I dont know when the next Update will be.

    Stay Tuned!

    UPDATED 6 AUG 06

    OK I worked on the some of the little things that I can right now as money is tight, and this is just free elbow grease work that I could do. It not complete but it is a step in the right direction for me.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I am still debating whether or not to do a wire tuck, I dont think the engine bay is cluttered and I dont see the benefits of doing it. I might tuck the harness that is attached to the engine but again not sure yet.

    Stay Tuned!

    UPDATED 13 AUG 06

    My boy works for a plating company and he glassbeaded my valve cover so now its ready for paint
    [​IMG]

    Took the pedals out of the White Coupe
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Minor wire tuck coming up just need time and maybe some advice

    Stay Tuned!

    UPDATED 30 AUG 06

    Ok Update

    Pedals are in
    [​IMG]

    Booster and brake master Cylinder is out and getting painted
    [​IMG]

    Clutch slave Cylinder line is in
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Cleaned this up but did not get a pic of it cleaned
    [​IMG]

    Test Fitting the JDM Headlights and Corners! :jdm:
    [​IMG]

    Took this Crap out but the camera batteries died so when I get batteries and have time to work on the car then I will take a Pic
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    My Mount should be here in a few days so stayed tuned as the motor should be in this weekend and maybe I should be able to start it but who knows I have had something MAJOR Happen in my life and I really dont feel like doing anything I am working on the car because I need a ride to work so lets see what happens

    Stay Tuned!

    UPDATED 9 SEPT 06

    Ok so these were taken with my Phone I just got batteries for my camera yesterday.

    GoodBye Automatic Shifter!
    [​IMG]

    This is the Hole that will have to be patched up since the manual car does not use it I will make a plate and weld it in.
    [​IMG]

    Ok so I took off my knuckles so I can take them to work and replace the bad ball joints and replace the lug studs that are damaged.
    [​IMG]

    Bad Ball Joints!
    [​IMG]

    I also removed the power steering Rack as it was leaking and its so much easier to do it with the motor out! I will install the rack from the green coupe and install new outer and inner tie rod ends

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And took these off in preperation for something better

    UPDATED 12 DEC 06

    Ok so I have not been able to work on the car due to personal issues then after they were resolved I could not work on it due to lack of money and lack of parts
    so here is "EJWone" as it sits right now these pics are kind of depressing and I will let them tell the story.

    As of now I am unsure when I will be able to work on it and get it running parts that are needed are missing and money is tight right now. So it might sit like this for a while!! :cry:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    No upper control arms yet :frown:
    [​IMG]

    Notice the battery tray painted FROst white!
    [​IMG]

    UPDATED 21 APRIL 07
    Ok so today was my first weekend off at work and the first beautiful day in along time weather wise! So I decided to work on "EJWone" and make some progress towards getting him on the road!

    Here is my trusty Winter beater helping out "EJWone"! Whats that in the Bed of the Truck Reppin the Coupe Council?
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Ok so everyone knows what the trailing arms look like with drums
    [​IMG]

    This is what it looks like with out the drum and brake shoe's and the rear bearings on!
    [​IMG]

    This E-Brake cable will never be used again on this Coupe! Man is this a bitch to get out in one piece so I used a die grinder and cut it off!
    [​IMG]

    I disconnected the brake hose here since they won't need to be used any more either!
    [​IMG]

    Here He is with absolutely no rear suspension trailing arms are OUT!
    [​IMG]

    This is what will go on now! PIC FTW! OEM Bolts FTW!!
    [​IMG]

    4 of these will be needed 2 for each side!
    [​IMG]

    2 of these for the rear shocks!
    [​IMG]

    Bam here it is!
    [​IMG]

    PIC FTW is all I got to say!
    [​IMG]

    Thanks to Lionel for the help here!
    [​IMG]

    Working it!
    [​IMG]

    Achieved!
    [​IMG]

    Getting the Integra Rear Trailing arms ready to mount!

    So today I figured I would finish the front suspension and start my wire tuck!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    So since I have big fat hands I had my Girl do the wire tuck! Nothing was cut I depinned the connectors one by one and ran them thru the hole under the fuse box!

    Thanks everyone! I called a few machine shops in the area today and i am taking the shortblock to them tomorrow. The car will not come out this year as I am not rushing it to make sure I do it right the first time.

    The marriage is going great Now we have a new born son that is 8 weeks old this week his name is Ejay. I will be posting pics soon of Ejay and my wife helping me with the engine build.
