Awesome build thread!! Just read it start to finish... EN4 carbs are a great upgrade for these, bet it goes well now? Nice to see one tastefully modified and restored.

If you ever come across another set of floor mats, please let me know. I had a mint '74 Sb1 with a EN4 conversion, had the complete black jdm interior (plastics on the door panels even!), 84,000 factory kms, but the car got firebombed by some vandals :( Looking for mint parts to restore it with.
I've also got a EB3 Civic like yours with a ER City Turbo conversion

Love the ebs mate, good work with this one!!


Thankyou very much :) Yep the en4 pulls really well :wink: . I have another set of mats but i'm keeping them for a future EB1 73 project.

Here's the next update :)

Ive fitted some rear mudflaps and i dont like them at all :cry:

Maybe they will grow on me :roll:

Jay, not sure what you don't like about your mud guards. I think they blend well and look real good on your car. :)

Are you sure you couldn't part with them, it would be for a really good cause :D

Mudflaps look good IMO, go well with the wheels/pin stripe

If i find any more i'll let you know, the shipping would be the killer though :cry:


I had a rummage around the garage again and found this. Its an internal release kit for the 1st gen civic's trunk / hatch?

The lever bolts into the blanking holes for the unused grab handle above the driver's door

Nice find on the petrol flap puller! I've seen a lot of JDM gear for the 1G Civic, but never that option, must be UKDM only?

Check out my introduction thread posted up some graphic pictures of the burnt out '74... Also where did you find that steering wheel, I've come across a similar one, that has a period looking mugen centre cap, and momo engravings, trying to work out if its legit old school mugen, or just a wheel with mugen centre cap.

Hanging's too good for the scum that did that too your civic :evil:

I know its a mess but its gotta be salvagable.

The steering wheel is a cheap mountney one that i stuck an old style honda "h" emblem on

BTW its a remote rear hatch release not a petrol flap release :wink:

I have a 73-77 roof console and i want to fit it too my 79' car. The problem is the 78-79 cars dont have a round dome interior light like the one used oon the 73-77 cars. The 78-79 have a rectangular dome light and if you try and fit the earlier roof console it looks like this. :cry:

Here's my regtangular dome light been removed.

Image

And here you can see that the hole left by the rectangular interior light leaves a huge gap either side the roof console. :cry:

Image

My solution is to fit and earlier roof liner. Dont know if it will work but here goes :?

I found a 73-77 roof liner in a scrap car. Sadly its was a bit moldy :roll:

Image

Image

But after some cleaning with "vanish" it doesnt look to bad at all. :D

Image

Now to remove my liner and transplant the 73-77 one in.

Cant wait to get this fitted.

The console project finally completed.

To fit the console i drilled through the base of the console to allow me to fix a self tapping screw into the roof rib or dome light surrround. As you can see i made a few holes until i was happy.
I then drilled a very small pilot hole making sure i didnt drill through the roof :) Once i had done this i simply screwed it up with a self tapper and i could get my finger above to double check i wasnt screwing through the roof :roll: That's the self tapper just below the green/black wire

The 78/79 wires are white/blue black and green/black

These need to be wired in as so

Black to black wire on console. (I removed the earth conection and crimped that)
White Blue to white on spot light
Green black to Green Black

Image

All Fitted
