Hope you guys don't mind if I shamelessly copy my built thread over from 3GOC.co.uk .
I have other projects in my fleet on JNC but with trying to start a business this last year things have been slow. But I have found time to build a little daily driver to fly the flag for our conpany Future Racing Developments Ltd.
So here goes......
I'm one half of Future Racing Developments Ltd. and working with Tom who is a second generation petrol head and complete Honda nut and its rubbing off on me lol.
Now I'm 34, worked for Mitsubishi dealers 18 years, finished up as a Master Technician and my family had alot of early Honda's as I was growin' up. My Sis had a 1g Civic then a 2g CRX, my Mom had a 1g Prelude and my Dad had a 2g Civic 1500s and then a 3g Civic GT So I guess they are in my blood too.
I loved the 3g as a kid and now with our business getting well known for maintaining and tuning Honda's in the area my choice for a comuting companion was pretty much made for me. It had to be Retro and it had to be Honda.
My girlfriend Livy treated me to a Lil' 3g DX from eBay, an unfinished project for someone with alot of welding already done but still not quite complete. But for £100 ($200) a steal over here, I became the very proud owner of some "Sexy Back" 3g goodness.
Now all intensions were keep it standard and cheap to run so what I save I could spend on my son, my girlfriend, house and other cars. BUT no way was Tom gonna let that happen, not that I took much persuading. I'm a total sucker for digging about on Japanese sites for info and parts for cars and talkin' to Tom about the JDM Si's he said he was sure we could get a D16 to be more economical than the EV2 1300 and more powerful than a B-Series swap with very little work.
Now my mind had been tickin' over since I had seen a 1g Teg on eBay go for £50 complete :blink: and pretty soon we found a hoard of doner parts. Everything but the gearbox which we soon tracked down.
So build list is lookin' like this so far:
1g Teg Brown Top and gearbox transplant
1g Teg lower arms, roll bar and brakes up front
1g Teg rear end including brakes and axle
1g Teg new handbrake cables
Japspeed D-series tubular manifold
Bike carbs on custom intake mount
FACET Red Top fuel pump and fuel regulator
14" Teg rims in powdercoat black with fronts wrapped in Toyo R888's
UK GT rear center panel for the Si look
Rear arch repair panels
With a little help from our friends LOL, as we're snowed under trying to get a EK K20 Turbo Project and restoration of a 88 Starion finished for next month :blink: . The 3g has already made a start with our good friend Henry removing the engine with a little guidance for me and Tom it's out and the bay will be cleaned up for my girfriend Livy to paint before the ZC is droped in.
