to get the car low enough, I've had to play around with the top mounts, but now the strut top has contacted the bonnet making a dent, so as it's a Honda, I've done what Honda kids do, and put bonnet lifters on it, the cars soon to go even lower

if the coilovers didn't cost me so much I would have cut the top of the strut off, but they are adjustable AVO GTZ's with top adjustment so can't shorten them

yes, the suspension was 3X the cost of the car, but I love it, it is motorsport/track suspension, so a bit of a waste being very low, but I like it and the car is only a toy/weekend car now

a picture taken of my car at the weekend, got to say, I'm in love with the old girl, well worth the money on the Avo GTZ coilovers

well, the ol' girl let me down for the first time in 3 years, came to it on Friday a couple weeks ago, for it not to turn over, it sits all week so fair enough, get jump pack on it to jump it.

well it still didn't start, removed starter to test it, NOTHING.... sent it off to be rebuilt and they said the Armature has a hole blown in it. so new Start motor it is then..
Image
Image
so all working again now, really want to tidy up under the bonnet, as the exhaust manifold and rocker cover are tatty compared to the mint everything else.


More pictures, was at MIMMS Honda Day, at Peterborough Arena, where I went up with some friends from Essex and Kent,

I was parked out in the Clubstand area, with NR Hondas (Honda EA on facebook)

just some little updates, no massive changes, wider wheels 8x16 and 8.5x16 bandeds D2 rear camber arms to get the fitment just right and really worked hard under the bonnet hope you like

Under bonnet looks really good, I'm jealous. Is the rocker/cam cover hydrodipped or something? Doesn't look like a regular paint finish and is a nice subtle detail.
