    Finnaly was able to buy a new digital camera, after my last one fried itself.
    Here are some shots I took the other day. Don't mind the steelies, I have a set of Rotas on order with set of Khumos.

    Tell me what you think!

    Previous owner has set of cheapo driving lights, and cut the front bumper - bought a nice set of PIAA lights.

    [​IMG]

    Side view - had to buy a new fender after someone nailed it in a parking lot while I was at work.

    [​IMG]

    Hopefully not too ricey, ordered a set of black MSD wires, and they sent me red...grrr. Also note the custom exhaust manifold heat shield. Old one rusted off, so got myself some sheet stainless, and went to work.

    [​IMG]

    SS Coil, my AEM Short-Ram, and my ghetto-fabrication overflow bottle bracket. Common in the NE, my old one rusted right through, so after some random brackets, heavy-gauge wire, and some zip ties, and I had a replacement. Wire loom is my friend.

    Close up of my heatsheild. Hope to paint it with some hi-temp silver latter- or polish it.

    Interior. Stock, save for the Kenwood DIN, and the awsome shiftbootless console. Again, the previous owner had a ricey Black Widow shifter dress up boot and baseplate. Tore it off, now I have the stock shifter with ES bushings, and some no-name knob.

    It looks like you can't get your oil dip-stick out to check your oil...

    Isn't EG the model code? I don't think it matters as far as body style. Correct me if I'm wrong, but EG, EK, EP, etc. don't rely on body style.

    As for the dipstick...

    Yeah, I can get it out, its tight, but it works.

    EG is a generalization. Youre car is actually a EJ something or other. Why did you say EG Coupe From Hell? It's stock, or at least stock looking. Good looking car, get some wheels and a drop.

    take more pics when you get the wheels on, cuz right now, to me, it looks like every other white civic i see. oh and if you dont need those hoodpins, leave em at home... id suggest removing the side moldings too. but hey, atleast youre keeping it clean.

    Is it me or does the passenger side corner light look like it's about to pop out?
    I'd say take the black side panel's off as the guy who peed on my mom had mentioned.

    To address many of the concerns voiced in the tread. The car is NOT stock. As it says in my sig -



    To elaborate on the whole "Hell" part - the car was bought as a complete basket case. All struts, bushings, brakes, etc. were blown, or very rough. The car came from some Autozone ricer. It had a trailer hitch, LED washer-squirters, and some ghey (broken) angel eye headlights. The paint was OK - save for the frontend. He had rear-ended a minivan at some low speed, and crunched the hood. The bumper was fine - just needed a respray. The core support was a little bent - hence the croked turn signal. I managed to get the vital parts relaligned thanks to a ratchet-winch and a tree. The hood latch was messed up, and even though I found a used one, I couldn't get it to line up right. After about 5 days of toiling with washers, spacers, and a large hammer, I gave up. I drilled two holes in my hood and never looked back. The hood pins are very functional. Sparcos - and they have held up well. And to prove my innocence before the gods of Honda, they are NOT stick-on hood pins.

    I hope I am forgiven. :worthy:

    NOTE: Hood damper not seen, as it is still being "constructed"

    Indeed. I'm going to get the whole car reshot - still white, but the previous job done by the old owner was a shitty Maaco job. Overspray everywhere.
