Thanks,

The 2nd gen civic S and the british triumph acclaim (2nd gen civic saloon) had twin carbs. With the manifold this will bolts straight onto any 1200 73-79 civic.

Here's another shot.

Thought i would share some pics of my Deluxe Guages install to my 79' 1200 RHD car.

First job is to recline the driving seat fully back to the lurvin setting :lol:

Image

Then remove the steering wheel. Perhaps not a must for everyone but its essential for the more portly gentleman. :wink:

Image

With the steering wheel removed and the seat reclined its time to adopt the dying fly postion as you lie on your back with your legs in the air whilst trying to undo the three 10mm nuts that hold the instrument pod on. :x

I then removed the speedo cable from the transmission and gently pulled the pod out giving access to the electrical conectors and speedo cable. Undo the speedo cable and pull out some more to access the electrical conectors and then pull them

Image

Now its time to make a hole in the dash for the temp/fuel cluster to go.

Beyond the point of no return....

Image

I drilled several holes.

Image

Then i pulled on the edges until the rear panel snapped at its designed weak point. The "wood" effect crap was trimmed with a stanley knife

Image

Image

Test fit of the temp/fuel cluster, looks ok.

Image

Thats all for now folks...... :)

Thankyou :)


I'm using an electric tach and i'm told the conection is there but i haven't found it yet. That said i haven't looked that hard yet. In any case running a wire to the coil isnt going to be that hard. I seem to remember seeing a loose blue wire in the coil area so i'll have to investigate.

I wanted to loose the hondamatic speedo guage face but keep my mileometer so ive had a few sets in bits.......... :)

Image

Very Happy with the results. :D

Image

The plug for the temp/fuel guage i pulled through using a brazing rod. The power for the instrument lights comes in on this plug so it looks like i have to splice into that for power for the main tach/speedo units lights.

A quick test fit and it looks like it will be nice when its done.

Today i arrived at ExhaustUK's premisses 8)

Image

They are the official exhaust supplier to Pimp my Ride UK :lol:

Image

The guy spent at lot of time asking what sound, silencer and tip i wanted. They were very helpfull. Then it was time to had over the keys.

Up on ramps the car went as they removed the old system and designed and fitted the new.

Image

Some of the work in progress 8)

Image

Image

Image

Image

All mounts were tig welded in situ and the system is all 304 grade stainless.

Image

All done

Image

They tried a straight through silencer but it was too noisey so i went for a quiter one the only problem being it was hard to fit and sits lower then i would have like. Still the system sounds great, does not drone or boom and i now have no clanking and banging from under the car

My names Jay and ive officially been pimped :lol:

Got some more done today...........

Back in 73 in the UK poverty spec civic's came with no carpets, instead they came with fitted rubber mats. I managed to track down some NOS ones.

Image

And so i fitted them today, smartens the interior uo a bit...now for the seats ;)

Ive fitted them over the existing carpet

Seat came out and i discovered one of the rear seat mounts was broken, i thought it had started creaking a bit. Lucky i had a spare one

Image

I removed the rear carpet just to have a look

Image

Image

Image

Image

All done. Just need to make a few adjustments and let gravity do the rest

Image

I'm a huge fan of those rubber "carpets" in the first gen Civics. I wish I could find some since my carpet is balding, for lack of a better description.

I found a new old stock centre console laying around in my garage so tonight i fitted it :) Nice to find one that's not got any chrome chipped of it.

Image

It still has the green dot sticker on it which i assume is honda quality control?

Image

Perfect Chrome 8)

Image

All fitted.

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!!
