Headlight Swap

After a little bit of thought I decided I never really liked the Denji Projector headlights to be honest. I set out to find a set of oem Civic headlights, bought some from a member off the forum only to find them with broken brackets and totally filthy, but nonetheless I cleaned them up and gave them to my friend. He would then take them apart, clean them thoroughly and paint the top and bottom sections of the lights in a HT black paint to give them a more evil look.

Here are the results, the only thing I need to do now is paint the indicators in the same style.

Overall I'm pretty pleased with the result, I totally prefer the oem style headlights, next on the cards is a 50W HID kit for them as the standard bulbs are very poor after downgrading from HID's.

New size number plate

Decided I didn't like the size and shape of the import number plate I had on, I printed one off at work which is a standard Euro size plate and it looks much better, plus it gives better clearance for the radiator too which I prefer.

I also fitted a fire extinguisher too, not really sure why, I think it looks more like a race car having an extinguisher in the boot.

Clean Again

Its been ages since I actually gave my EG6 a bit of TLC. I thought I'd give it a bath and a quick detail polish so it could be proud of the paintwork once again. I wish I had the whole day to spend cleaning it because I know I could but the English weather does not permit a full day of cleaning without it raining halfway through or just after you've finished polishing. I managed to tidy up the engine and engine bay too, the VTEC solenoid has started to leak slightly so I got rid of the seepage and it looks much better now. We also gave Michelle's EJ9 a wash and a polish too so I got a couple of shots of them together for the first time. Be sure to check the progress of the EJ9 at

Apologies for the utter rubbish photographs, my camera's digital view finder has cracked and I am basically pointing and hoping it captures what I wanted. Nikon D90 ftw eventually!
