Muirsy build thread

I picked up a 2004 civic se coupe almost three years ago at a dealer auction with 60 000 kms on it for $9000. The second I picked it up I already had plans running through my head of what I wanted to do it. The car stayed stock for almost a year until I finally started getting some money to put in to it.

The mods so far:

PDM front lip
HFP sides skirts
Type-r rear lip
Oem spoiler
Rota grids 17x7.5 +45 offset
20mm bolt on spacers
Type-r grill
Yellow fog lights
Blacked out headlights with 6000k hids
Painted mirrors and door handles
Gold blacks works racing tow hook
Gold skunk2 LCAs
Gold beaks bar
Skunk2 full coilovers
Front RSX type-s Leather seats
Alpine head unit
Apex%u2019i N1 cat back
Ebay header
High flow cat with custom down pipe

Mods no longer on the car
DAI rims
Tein s-tech lowering springs
Type-r front lip
Mugen front lip
2 10 inch subs

Future mods
RSX type-s rear sway bar
Polished subframe brace
CF hood
Tint
Sedan grill

First mod was apex'i n1 catback and DAI rims



next was typr-r front lip and grill



then painted the rims black, hfp sides, type-r rear lip, tein s-tech springs, and oem spoiler



painted the lip kit and yellow fogs



blacked out the headlights



RSX seats



painted the rims gold and installed gold tow hook



LCAs, beaks bar, and mugen front lip





2010 winter mode



pdm front lip and skunk2 full coils



new rims: Rota grids and how the car sits now minus the spacers






the only pic i have of the 20mm spacers on at the moment



I can't believe its almost been three years since I got the car. I have learned so much from working on it myself and being on the forums. I hope you guys like my car as much as I do.

Re: Muirsy build thread

Everyone has build threads now !

The rear suspension looks great, are you planning on adding a sway bar and subframe brace at some point?
