    Right, so I went today to view a Yaris T Sport, possibly buy it as I had my eye on it for a while. Got to the dealer in Luton, and it was a heap of ****. So many dents, scratches, bumper hanging off and rusty wheels. So, went and had a look around but there were no Yarises about!
    Stumbled across this car, always wanted one but never thought I could afford it. Just wanted something cheap like the Yaris, but after seeing one in person I was a bit put off, kinda by how small and squashed it looked. So, ended up getting a Civic Sport 3dr (or Type S whatever you call it) 1.6 VTEC... which obviously costed a fair bit more.

    Some teaser pics for now, very poor as they were taken late at night on an iPhone.
    More tomorrow! Gonna give her a good old wash and wax, and put some blue headlights in!

    Tried my first 0-60 tonight in the civic.
    Just had a short ram intake fitted by me and my mate, and a big bore exhaust system. Not much but ah well. Was getting a bit of torque steer suprisingly.
    Did this on a private road so all is good.
    Suprised by the results tbh! I can do better, the tyres were brand new on today, a bit slippery. And i didnt take it over 6k revs Laughing

    Lights tinted:

    And because I'm such a pro sprayer (cant be arsed to take lights off and use one rattle can of tint spray), the job is outstanding* :ninja:

    *it's actually awful, i even oversprayed when i masked up the lights and had to use sticky stuff remover to get it off, now im gonna have to constantly rub in colour magic to blend it all back to red. Oh, and the lights aren't smooth or even.

    So enjoy the amazing 3 hour* light transformation

    *10 minutes

    And yes, I did use more than one strip of masking tape!*

    I didnt.

    oh but in all honesty they are actually as dark as each other. The right one is shadowed by the house but the left got more light to it in this photo

    I'll probably do it as soon as tbh
    Might by a sports cell 200 cat first, so I can get the benefits of the manifold, and then get them fitted together.
    Its a bolt off, bolt on job, but i have no ramps so will have to take it to a garage!

    Not enough. It was £2 and delivered within 24hrs so it was ok... but it didnt specify the amount,
    I spoke to a guy with a type R and he said its not really necessary to wrap a stainless steel mani - and it looks better too!
    So i'll leave it shiny, might look better tbh

    yep he brushed it iirc

    looks amazing though, might not even bother having it polished - the rough bits are at the back out of show.

    but i dunno.


    got some new stickers on the whip too, you'll see soon. I like Twisted Evil
