test fitting time :D

Onely ,these wheels are not going to e on the car,i made test rides,but the et30 is to mucch off,to much feedback in the steeringwheel.The wheels were'nt real straight anyway after 30jears :roll:

My plan now is redrill everething to 4x100,that will make the searche for new wheels less hard.


Take some time,my other project!

I'd bet the feedback in the wheel has more to do with those tires, than the wheel's offset. :wink:

Are they new? Too much width can effect it too. In this case, offset is the last thing I'd blame. Skinny tires can hide a lot of ills.

Looks so nice, shame about the effects of the offset.
Have you found the info on 1stgencivic.org for 4x100. I had to figure it out for myself for my Accord.
Halving the weight on the B16 flywheel must change things... I already find my CR-X SiR so overweight with options it's not easy to get it off the line quickly easily/discretely.

Oh not as easy to find as I remembered, I did a search & they've created a seperate area for the most favored method (inc. rear discs)
http://www.1stgencivic.org/1stgeneration_civic/susp_brake_mod1.htm
Generally various later model frt hubs, discs & calipers are used so you do not have to dis-assemble the front hubs/carriers to replace the discs anymore.
From memory the rear drums didn't seem to have the metal for re-drilling to 4x100 so revisions to the spindles or the (separate) later style rear hubs were needed (thankfully bolt-on for the Accord)

COOL Honda. I have a 75 myself but a CVCC not 1200. I spent about 6months in Holland, a BEAUTIFUL country. I don't remember seeing any civics like that. :)

Most civics have rotted to bits,due to the salty climate.
Luckely some of us try to keep them alive :D

With part of holland have you been?Hope you seen more than the red light district ,and the coffeeshops :D

HAHAHA. I was doing a study abroad program in Haarlem. I have visited some other cities: Lieden, Den Haag, Alkmaar, Zandfort and Amsterdam of course. Redlight District was fun to browse only, but I spent my fair time in some coffeeshops. :wink: Id have to say it was the best time of my life...so far.

Which part are you from? Keep the 1200 pics coming!!! doei! :)

Some updates:

Finaly got rid of the ugly EDM licence plate holder.Its big and ugly.
Took it out,and put a stainles plate holder back.ad a pair of small lights.
Job well done
Image
Image


Bought some aftermarket meters and meter holder,to make my own LUXERY meter dash :D
I also added a civic EG luxery console.Fits nice,but needed some cutting .
Image


My donor car was a manual gearbox.So I checked out if the flywheel was machineble.
YUP,
It was 7,6KG ,now 4,4KG :D

Im not using it,couse i love my hondamatic to much.


Image




Still searching for a cheap and easy way to swap to 4x100.
I had a trailing arm of a civic EG lying around.Took it apart.

The drum fits plug and play over drum pads and all.
The bearing hub fits on the shaft onely with the lower bearing,same size.
The outer bearing is to big for the shaft.But the outer bearing looks interchangeble with the oem EB ,so that could fit to.
Only bad thing,the bearing hub ,falls to far inwards,i'm going to make a bush,to make it go outwards. MAYBE it wil work?

Dat zoek ik later nog wel uit.
Image

Easyer way is redrilling the origial drums,WAY easyer :D
