    Civic 1200 '79 - full restoration - lots of pics!!

    Hello everybody,

    This is my first post on the forum, though checking it out for quite a while. My name is Stephan and I'm from the Netherlands and I thought it would be nice to share my restoration pics with you all (will follow in post 2).

    As the title says, I'm restoring a Civic 1200 for more than 2 years now. My girlfriend and I own the car for about 4 years. What began as here and there adding some accessories has turned out in a full obsession in the most positive way. It's part of every day's life now and since the project is almost finished, it's kinda scary in a way too!! Is there life after this..probably :wink:

    Some specs: 2nd gen. Civic 5 speed, RS Keihin dual carbs, RS inlet manifold, RS exhaust manifold, King lowering springs, Venolia high comp. pistons, engine fully overhauled (incl. head and gearbox) , sporty seats, almost every accessory, Panasport (13x6) alloys, Pertronix ignition (coil, ignitor, wires), Mugen cam (goes in later), etc., etc...

    Enjoy and feel free to post comments

    Cheers, Stephan

    Btw, big fan of the JNC magazines and forum :tu:

    Thanks everybody!

    Wheels are Panasport 13x6 with Falken tires (185/60). They looked like this when I got 'em from the US and went for matte black powder coat.



    The dent was caused by a crappy jack. When the engine got in, the car was way heavier than before and when I lifted the car up, the jack got in a little hole in the floor with one wheel and the car fell on the jack. :cry: It's gonna be fixed as soon as it's road legal.
