Hello all,
Finally got some pics of my EP2. Been out cleaning it this morning, so i'm now bloody freezing. lol.

The only mods it has so far are the tints i had done last weekend and the K&N Typhoon induction kit.
The next thing on my list as to lower it (springs only as i cant really afford coilovers, and a new set of wheels).

I know its still pretty much standard, but i love it.. lol.. best car i have had...

Looks Killer! :D
IMO, the only mod those things need is Rims. What were honda thinking when they put those alloys on the car? They do nothing for me anyways. The Pentas that some people have look ace!

Cheers for your comments... Sorry about the Mugen sticker on the rear. :D lol. it was just something to cover the crease from where the former owner hit something.

Hi all,
I'm going to be removing the rear wiper during this next week (I never use the thing anyway). Picking up the blanking cap from Honda this saturday.

I'll take plenty of pictures and will post a step by step guide (including all the parts needed to do the job) in the Exterior related Tune-up section.

Should look pretty cool and tidy up the back of the car a bit.
Wish me luck! lol :lol:

I've just done it! Removed the wiper assembly (that was a pain in the ass!) and fitted the blanking cap that i picked up from Honda this morning.
It was a realy easy mod to do, just put a bead of sealant on the back of the cap, let it dry for half an hour, then screwed the cap in place. Removed the washer tube on the inside of the rear hatch (not forgetting to plug the end), taped the wiper motor plug out of the way, removed the fuse (just in case) the unplugged the rear washer pump plug from under the wheel arch.
In all it took about 1 hour 15 mins... :lol:
Not bad at all!

Here are a couple of pictures after i fitted it.

i hope you kinked the hose too?
looks ok not too keen on these cars being de-wipered on the back mind.

someone on ctro forum changed the rear arm for a slim aero blade wiper. looks better. bought it from VW i think.

No, i didn't kink the hose, i turned up a plug on the lathe and secured it in place with a spring clip. Its nicely hidden inside the rear hatch so it looks neat.

After removing the rear wiper blade on Saturday, i thought i'd debadge the rear of the car. I removed both the standard chrome style Civic badge and my Mugen sticker (which was only there to cover up slight paint damage anyway).

The Civic badge came off easily, just warmed it up with a hot air gun and peeled it away. The hardest bit was getting the 3 year old foam tape off from underneath. lol. About 20 mins and a bottle of white spirit solved the problem...
Next it was time to remove the Mugen sticker. It came off realy easy, trouble was, the damage paint also came off realy easily as i peeled the sticker off! ;)
Looks like i have another job to do now. lol ;)


I had my exhaust wrap arrive yesterday from Demon Tweeks, so i'll have a go at applying that to the exhaust manifold and downpipe this lunchtime.
I've used it on previous cars in the past and although it may not look to pretty to some people, it realy cuts allot of the heat down in the engine bay and (fingers crossed) improve power output.
My last car was a 1.6 Nissan Primera, and you could realy feel the effect of having it fitted.

I'll let you know later how i get on.
