Darksyde294 2011 Civic Build Thread

Picked up this 2011 Honda Civic EX with navigation January this year. The plan (even though itís taking longer then thought to start) is to build ďthe ultimate grocery getter.Ē Iím planning on using as many HFP parts as possible so I donít void the warranty. Of course Iím going to have to go aftermarket when it comes to most of the engine work. So letís get this started. Here is a picture of the car in its current stock state. First modifications are going to be the tail lights, rear appliquť, trunk hangers, and a trunk liner. I will show how to along with pictures of all parts installed.

I've ordered the maxzone black style. Should have them installed by next week with a couple of other goodies. Nothing to crazy.

Re: Darksyde294 2011 Civic Build Thread

Well I finally got the first batch of parts installed. For those who donít know, installing tail lights to the 8th Gen Civic can be frustrating because you have to remove the rear bumper and chrome back piece to get these damn things on. But in the end it came out looking great. Also check out the difference when I installed the tray along with the cargo hooks. I didnít install the brake pads yet because I couldnít see myself wasting the old ones. So Iím going to wait until the old ones fade away and pick up new rotors as well. Up next Iím thinking of picking up stuff for the interior. Looking to get all the small stuff first before I go big with a new kit and rims.

Re: Darksyde294 2011 Civic Build Thread

I really didn't like the 8th gen sedans for their tails and just the look of the back. But those tails i must say look really good! Got any other plans? (sound system maybe?)

Got a lot of ideas for this car. Only thing is I only have till the end of next year to finish this project and money doesn't grow on trees. Major plans are body kit, full eibach suspension, some engine work, and little here and there. I want to make sure I can keep it as comfortable driving around town as possible. As far as sound system goes... Just maybe upgrade the speaker system throughout the car. Nothing over the top because I really enjoy the in-dash nav system that came with the car.

Also thanks for all the nice comments on the tail lights. At first I was a little hesitant on them, but I think they are an better look then the stock ones.

But I do like the tails as well, good thing there not altezzas. If you want you can lamin X the stock ones to a smoke color and see how you like it well. Nice car I love to see new cars get modded not just being driving by old people.

On a side note if I ever get one of this cars I will shave of the side mirror and put on the coupe ones since there in the correct spot. Don't know what honda was thinking.

Sorry guys, haven't done anything to the Civic as of late. Been throwing my time into my Impreza GC8. But will get back on the Civic later this month or next month.

Re: Darksyde294 2011 Civic Build Thread

Been away for a while, but getting back to working on the Civic. Just picked up a KN Filter and installed it last weekend. Here are a couple of pictures of the install. Up next going to install Raybestos brake pads all the way around and add so extra lighting. Most likely fog lights. But for now here are pictures of the FN Filter install.


Picture of the KN filter next to stock filter:
