Hi People This Is My First Post On The Forum
I have just got a 1990 Honda Civic 3 Door I say 1990 but the build date is 1989 and compliance date is 1990 as you will see in the following photos someone has painted it mat black.
As you can see I have some work too do. First up is 4 new tires. Then brakes. Wind Screen and sort out that bent front bumper (Not worried about the dented guards yet just need to do what is needed to get it on the road the rest will follow. Also need to replace the indicator in the damaged bumper. and the driver side sidelight.
I ordered both indicators because the non broken one was half panted black and they were only $20 each including postage (Gotta Love Ebay) and the side Light is ordered too $35. Tires bought and fitted $69 each (175-65-14) and the spare was a 13 so needed to find a 14 for the spare (I hate miss match spares) was Lucky a mate had 3 Nissan mags the right size with 80% tires only $100 the lot so that sorts the spair and matching wheels for my trailer.
The Guy Is Coming Wednesday to Fit a new windscreen $275
it is all moving along.
Removed all those stickers
I fixed the front bumper 2 hours with a hammer and it is a lot better that is was before not perfect but will pass Road Worthy.
Front Brake Pads Ordered

I have spent 4 hours with a hammer straitening the front bumper and the metal part inside it and it isn't perfect but it is a lot better.
The new front indicators have arrived.
The new frond disc pad are ordered and waiting for me at the parts shop and I checked the rear drum brakes and sadly they need replacing too, but happily the drums and in perfect order so it is just new shoes.
The broken side light that was send was wrong but the company is sending the right one at no extra cost to me and I get to keep the wrong one (I have no idea what to do with it maybe swap fodder)
3 of the 4 wheels are stripped back to original silver 1 to go.
I am sitting here at just after 8 am the temp 3c I am waiting for the windscreen guy is coming to replace the screen.
