    Miller's EG Build - Update 16/1/12

    Hey

    Been lurking on here a while, and know a few of you, but i finally brought a Honda , so i thought i should start a build thread.


    Its a 1992 EG4 Civic hatch.

    My plan is to strip as much out of it as I can, put a cage and a B16A in it and have some fun.

    Havent done to much to it yet, as ive only had it a couple of weeks.

    And whats a build thread without pics.....



    This is how it looked when i brought it:











    I then got stuck into stripping all the interior out...













    Them comes the fun task of removing all the old shitty sound deadning..





    Time for some dry ice fun







    Half way through





    And while I was doing that I got Brent stuck into removing the air con, and all bits that go with it..






    Thats about as far as I have got for the time being, I am about to go outside and try finish off removing the last of the sound deadning, and all the residue. So will post some finsihed pics up hopefully tonight..



    Cheers
    Miller

    Wow nice ride. I think I have met you before at a meet when we were both "trying real hard to fit in".

    Post pics of and details of your other current and past builds.

    This guy doesn't do shit by halves .

    Re: Miller's EG Build

    Some of the pics don't work for me

    Looks like a nice car man. I was going to do an EG build initially before I stretched the budget for an itr.

    This build thread already pawns Brent's, pics in the first post

    Re: Miller's EG Build

    Cheers for the comments guys.

    Yea Chris, sold the skyline to buy this


    Na hasnt been in a major crash or anything, just had the drivers side resprayed after a little car park rash, but they didnt do the front guard.

    In real life you can hardly notice the different colour, must just be the light in that shot that makes it look really different.




    Also went along to the AAP meet on Tuesday and brought some goodies..


    ISL Front strut brace

    ISL Fender gussets (not in picture)

    Blox Velosity stack and air filter

    And a genuine Honda air con bung, to plug up the hole left by removing the A/C.







    Also brought a brand new Sabelt Racer Duo FIA approved seat.

    Na, no plans on what wheels I want, thats a long way down the track

    Not going to get that much done on it this weekend, as im heading down to Taupo with brent for honda cup, but the weekend after im hoping to get the engine out, so that will be a nice thing to get out of the way.

    Removing all the looms:






    Removing the engine:














    Brent having some fun removing little bits from the bay:






    Gutting the rear hatch:








    Also made up some boot latches, seen as i cut the old ones out







    And thats about it for now. Just saving up, then ill book it in for a cage.
    Just doing little bits from now till then, like cutting out excess metal etc




    Cheers

    Another up date..

    The car is booked in for a cage next saturday!!!!

    So that is nice, but now it means i have a date that i have to get everything ready by lol...

    Still want to gut a bit more of the rear of the car out, while its still easy, before the cage goes in..

    And have to get the windows taken out, which i think i have sorted..



    Anyway..

    Some pics of the pointless stuff i have been up to..


    I recently brought a full Hardrace EG bush kit off Alan Stewart..

    So i got started in removing all the old bushes out of the arms, giving the arms a clean up, and installing the new Hardrace bushes..



    Brand new upper control arms, with Hardrace bushes installed







    Cleaned up front lower control arms with the new bushes





    Also i needed some new front wheel bearings, as i noticed they had a bit of play in them..

    So got carried away with my new press and pressed out the wheel bearings and hubs out of the front knuckles..






    Still yet to install the new bearings..

    Im also going to replace the lower ball joints as they were pretty stuffed as well..



    So now i have to get the windows taken out, and gut the rear a bit more, then its ready for next saturday.. And the Cage




    Cheers
