Civic Jordan 318.. Enkei's on!

Post by furiousfunker on Sun Jul 01, 2012 1:18 am

Hi all and welcome to my build thread of my Jordan

I bought the car back in July 2011, after searching for a good one, I found this and knew it was the one for me. I had always wanted a Jordan since I was a little lad and someone up the road from me had one new which I loved!

Mods when i bought it
D2 Coilovers
Buddyclub short shifter
smoothed front bumper
de-wipered (properly)
Front fogs
OEM wind deflectors
Air con removed

heres some pics from when i first bought it





I didnt do much to it in 2011, just regular service items and repairs (driveshafts, calipers) i had a few things going on which took up a lot of my time, but im please to say since 2012 started, ive got slowly got the ball rolling, up to date, ive done the following:

Import sized plates
New exhaust manifold (no jdm goodies im afraid, will change one day)
replica Spoon N1 back box
Rusty arches cut out and new ones welded in
New OEM clutch (rattly release bearing drove me mad)
Purple engine bay dress up bits
Spoon Duckbill spoiler

I think thats it so far, here are some recent pictures.. none with the duckbill just yet, not been on long





and saw this on ebay and couldnt resist lol



future plans are:
Rear arches resprayed as the arsehole who repaired the arches used the wrong grade y56
Got some Enkeis on the way, im gonna get them refurbed sepang bronze
Paint calipers blue
get some Ferodo DS2500 pads
upgrade exhaust manifold and b-pipe
new steering wheel as the standard one is bigger than the moon (sort of)

and thats pretty much it, I dont like to make plans, Im more the sort of person to impulse buy, so you never know what to expect here lol

anyway, thanks for looking, comments more than welcome!

Cheers guys, theres a little bit of paint bubbling in the bay which needs addressing, but apart from that I'm happy with how it is right now

update!

got some enkeis off ebay, the advery clearly stated they were NOT kerbed, just needed a good clean, 2 centre caps and i messaged the seller to send them to my work address, he said yes no problem... what i actually got was 4 very poor condition wheels, all need refurbing, 1 centre cap and sent to my home address... f*cking useless ebay twat

anyway, here they are, im not sure what they are, maybe someone on here knows, all i know is they are enkei 15x6.5 et45





also, im unsure wether to go, Anthracite, Sepang Bronze, Fully Polished or Spoon Blue.. opinions welcome!

thanks for looking!

hmm.. I had thought that, but I doubt I'd keep them on that long before selling them lol.. I'm not sold on powdercoating as most the wheels I've seen powdercoatef have a bumpy finish, which I'm not a fan of

(this post was copied from another forum, sorry if it doesnt make complete sense)

Been a while since I posted any pictures of 318

From a couple of weeks ago with saifskyline, im sure most of you saw the thread he posted, here's a few I got..











A sneaky shot I found in Augusts Banzai, mines the first one in shot with the yellow magic tree!





and last Thursday, I finally got to put on my new Enkeis'.. If anyone saw my build thread, I got the wheels off ebay in a very poor state, dropped them off with City Powdercoaters in Digbeth, They did an outstanding job, £80 for the lot!

before


After







sorry about the quality of the last few pictures, I will try and get some better ones once ive finished my centre caps which I am currently making.


thanks for looking! comments welcome!
