    Default Out with the old, in with the Cosmic!

    New to the site so thought I'd introduce myself and start a thread!

    I'm new to Honda's as I'm a bit of a Vauxhall guy.. This is the first car i've owned that isn't a vauxhall and i love it!
    I had a mk4 astra but retardedly reversed it into a bollard and couldnt face driving it with the massive dent that was left

    A mate of mine was selling his EP3 cheap as he got a new car so for the price he said I could have it for I couldn't say no! I really had no plan to make any modifications on it because I also own a Nova GSi which is where i spend most my time, but as soon as I drove the EP3 i was in love haha.. So now my plans have changed, i want to clean up the civic and make a few mods.

    So the car.. like i said i got it for a right bargain! Its not in the best condition body wise, but it has full service history and runs sweet, has 145k on the clock which ive heard isn't actually alot for these cars/engines?

    The only modification on it is, sportex centre section and backbox.

    So heres some pics of how it sits now, came with no back seats but first thing I did was took a 4 hour round trip to grab some!

    After a clean and polish





    Need to source a new front bumper due to this crack



    A new wing as the passenger side has a dent in



    Has two small dinks in the rear quarter which im gonna to enquire about getting out



    And a small dent in the roof which is hard to get a pic of



    Sportex 4"



    Usual bolster wear..



    And the wheels are in desperate need of a refurb!



    Like I said the plan was to just use it as daily and not bother doing anything to it but, its way too much fun so im looking forward to tidying it up and making some mods!

    Tis a very well used ep3 yeah lol, but I love it so will tidy it up and get it looking like it should do!

    as for mods, I have a skunk2 weighted gear nob, hekos, and rear wiper grommet on the way. Then I'll be going for a black and purple theme ie wheels and other little bits. possibly a mugen grill but tbh first I want to source a new front bumper and get the small couple of dents out!

    and the nova I'll put a couple pics up at home tomorrow when I'm on my laptop, or my Instagram is: marshallbmx loads there

    So a couple of small updates this weekend, got my rear wiper grommet and blanked that off..





    Then changed the gearbox oil





    Also bought a new steering wheel with only a small amount of wear as my current one has a tear!



    Then as requested, pictures of the nova







    More updates to come!
