I know ya'll will hate on my civic, but I don't care

Bought my 2000 Civic at a dealer auction in FL in 2002 for $300. Since then I have been building it into a showcar. The lambos that are on it are coming off and will be replaced with 180 degree suicide doors. I am also redoing the suspension totally with removing the inner fender wells and doing a cantilever suspension on the front and back with bags and putting 22s in the front and 24s in the rear.

Last year I also installed drag bars on my civic for the Relaxed Atmospheres show in Millington, TN. I participated in the drag session and achieved 15 foot rooster tails behind my car.

Re: I know ya'll will hate on my civic, but I don't care

Not gonna hate because you said it's a show car. I would like to see the 180 suicides though. And how the car finally turns out. I'd also ditch those hood pins for AeroCatch ones.. Just a personal preference of mine though

Is a cantilever suspension what the ariel atom has on the front?

Re: I know ya'll will hate on my civic, but I don't care

I added the hood pins cause the urethane hood kept coming up when just used the hood latch. The front end is a 2004 JDM Acura RSX front end conversion, but I am also replacing the front bumper with a better one. It is difficult as hell to get a replacement front bumper for a urethane conversion one when you crack it. I am actually picking up a stock RSX bumper, cutting it in half and molding it back together just to have a better looking front bumper.

The cantilever suspension for civic can be found on youtube.

I am also considering replacing the stock motor with a K24A2/K20A2 hybrid from King Motorsports and Hybrid Racing. (Street Tuned to 350 hp).

Re: I know ya'll will hate on my civic, but I don't care

The paint job is just black primer. I have even more plans for the paint job to go along with my fave type of music, even though I may never get to go to one of the concerts.

Also all the work done and going to be done has been done by myself and a few friends.
On the cantilever suspension, I am actually building the system myself too, since I own my own welding business too.

Haha.. I just assumed the hood was partially popped.. I didn't take a close look enough at the pins to realize they were pinned down

I am also removing the M3 style mirrors and doing something totally different. Thus the mounting plates for the mirrors will have to be custom made, I am using the mirrors from a Can-Am Spyder with the built in HIDs in the mirrors.

Re: I know ya'll will hate on my civic, but I don't care

I like it. I think the RSX guys would hate more than the Civic guys. LOL!

The only pet peeve of mine is that the body parts line up perfectly. If it's slightly off I just stands out like a sore thumb. That's just me.

That is why I am doing the cantilever suspension. The strut towers on the civic are wrinkled from an incident in Atlanta in 2003. Thus the front end doesn't line up, but when the strut towers are removed for the new suspension, should line up.

Re: I know ya'll will hate on my civic, but I don't care

Electron blue pearl would compliment the interior nicely. Other than a paint job, it looks nice to me. The RSX front end is different for sure.

Re: I know ya'll will hate on my civic, but I don't care

Today I found out who I will have to call for my wheels. Since I am going with an unusual setup and want something to compliment the paint job I have in mind, I am having to have my wheels custom made.

Re: I know ya'll will hate on my civic, but I don't care

latest on the civic...
converting the brakes to 4X112 all the way around with discs going in on the back

Paint job is going to be stock silver with red flake with a two-tone flame setup with fire engine red metallic. Then will be getting 6 coats of clear with crystal chrome illusion in it.
