Would look perfect once you lower the car.

So far so good. Going to look great once you install the bc n+ and camber kit.

I wonder how those gunmetal handles would look on a nbp...

Again always nice to see a new build thread started :tu2:
Thanks mate. Your car is an inspiration to so many people, me included.

Thanks mate! So many nice Euro's are starting to pop up in Aus now. I'm genuinely surprised that there aren't more of us on here.

Cheers. I can't wait for my upgrades to arrive.
Not too sure about the handles on a nbp. I can't say that I've ever seen a black Euro R.
Love everything you've done so far. Keep it up.
Cheers mate. Keeping it realistic and DD'able.

Thanks for the compliment. I'm not too sure about the next mods. I still have to get some DBA T2 for the rear and maybe some braided brake lines to sort out the brake upgrade completely.

coming along nicely Richard, nice to meet you the other week too.

let me know if you want a hnad doing the susp work when it arrives. (ill take your door handles as payment :D)
Thanks Simon. It was good to meet some other Euro owners. I spoke to William briefly when I bought the flywheel but it was good to have a decent conversation with you both.

I think I might take you up on the sup install! Dunno about the handles though (carton of beer = universal currency). At least if we did we could see what they look like on the black one.

Connor is organizing a Perth Honda Club drive on the 25th, you going?

looks great......can't wait to see it lowered. love the rpf1!!
Thanks mate.

Got the ride height sorted out a bit better and stuck an ebay lip on the boot.

For $35 it does its job nicely.

Beautiful ride there, Mate!! Looks almost just like mine!! I have the rpf1's aswell, 18x7.5, with 10mm spacers fwd, and 5mm rear, could use another 10 in the rear though.. i have the h&r kit, not all the way down, maybe 3-3.5cm, there's no scrapping the spoiler lip, just when i get too close to the curb. But looking at your driveway, you'd be almost better off with an atv?? Other than that, how do you like the ride comfort?? Do you have to 'crawl' over those nasty speedbumps you aussies have??
Cheers

Thanks mate.

Ride comfort is great. The speedbumps are a nightmare I always have be carefull that I don't bottom out. I've ripped the underbody protector off on a speedbump all ready.
