Danith's facelift Fn2 Civic Type R

Fitted the mugen shifter unit today. Pretty easy actually. No idea how it feels shorter cos looking at them the only difference (visually) is the shorter shaft and stiffer rubber bushes. Not driven the car yet, will take it for a spin tomorrow but it's definitely a shorter throw and somehow feels slicker. Fitted the metal collar properly too and tried out a couple of funky new oil caps as well as reservoir socks.

Gonna stick with the blox cap rather than the silver mishimoto.

Also a new cabin filter for summer a.c. days.View attachment 1412581View attachment 1412582View attachment 1412583View attachment 1412584View attachment 1412585View attachment 1412586View attachment 1412587View attachment 1412588View attachment 1412589
Let me know how the shifter feels mate, I’m expecting good results.

Where did you buy the oil caps from? Are you selling the silver one?

Will see how it feels tomorrow when I go and collect my wheel again.
Was thinking to stick it in the ep3 but not sure yet. Will let you know if I flog it. Does look a nice bit of bling but prefer the blox one. Comes in a funky presentation case too

Looks good that mate. Let me know if you sell it, and how much. I’ll take it off your hands.

Where did you get it from?

Some guy on ebay for 35 quid. Mishimoto, tegiwa and h tune sell them too with red inserts.

Cool, will take a look. Let me know if you fancy selling it.

Did you trial out the new shifter this morning?
Just got back yeah it's brilliant. Feels a lot tighter and shorter. Say a 30% reduction in feel and nice and smooth

Sounds good! I can imagine it being similar to the s2000 throw.

How much are these retail? Great win.

No way sorry thought I'd replied. I paid 35 posted mate so that any good?
Cheers mate. I see Tweeks are selling the red one for £38 (free delivery) so I’ll probably go for that. Thanks anyway.

Your steering wheel come back yet?

Nah he said he'd do it while I was away. Kinda glad he hasn't yet cos haven't got the funds to pay him yet! Hopefully in couple weeks when get paid. The red one does look nicer to be honest. If I hadn't painted my engine covers black I'd have got the red

Love the GP front but for some reason I prefer the standard back.

Was it easy to fit?

Yeah bit easier than the front. Just a case of being careful to prevent snapping all the plastic clips (or the bodge glue from previous owner for 3 clips in my case).

Much prefer it over the stock, maybe just cos it's gloss and not grey unpainted plastic. Bloody hard to find used, for black cars, I know that!

Yep! How come the seller was getting rid? Did you get it for a bargain?

Nah wouldn't call it a bargain but cheaper than new that's for sure.

360 delivered new so was about to bite the bullet and get it from Cox on Sunday as I got fed up searching for a used one.

Then I remember a bloke near me has bought an fn2 with stock front but gp rear and was mint, so just messaged him on off chance and he sold it me for 200 plus my oem. Lives around the corner so came over and swapped it Monday evening before he goes on nights for 2 weeks. Bit of a mad rush but done now.
Gave him my benen tow hook too as it's too big for the gp rear and fouls it. Ordered a password fake instead as they seem smaller and I don't want some car park bellend scuffing this one!

He's going to go full on and put a diffuser on rear etc, so needs an oem as it's flat at the bottom.

Rang up Rimstock as well yesterday as it's been 5 weeks. He quoted 4 to 5 weeks (lolz). Still not done, just says 'in production'.

Last set took 4.5 months so might get them in time for winter, ha.

Booked in for the well overdue bonnet respray.

He'll do bonnet and top of wings blended in for me and also the washer jet caps (as I never replaced them when doing the bumper - 80 quid each I wasn't going to!!).

Honda paint is turd

What's the cost of that mate
Had a few quotes. Guy who did my driver's side quoted 500!
Another lad who's good says 250 but only bonnet as his booth won't fit a car in (so bonnet off job and wings off too if wanted them doing - cba doing that).
This place will do it all for 300. It'll chip again no doubt but it's been doing my head in ever since I got the new bumper on.

Same - my EP3 was horrendous. Any bits done post-factory held up much better.
My ep3 was pink and crap too. The paint respray it's had since has held up better, but the prep work and colour aren't as good lolz. One of reasons it's covered in stickers.
I'm hoping they get good paint for the fn2, I don't want to lose the flake etc

One for the haterz. Maximum jdmz, such speed

Fact is, they're half decent at stopping people reversing into your bumper

20 quid ebay belter with a bit of bodgery so it doesn't stick out a mile

Drive out today. Can't wait to get the pro race back on. These Ep wheels are starting to bore me a bit and show off the rear arch gap too much (if any shocks start failing I'm getting some Meister R's).

Car looks really nice with that rear diffuser its so much more subtle black/black rather than my red one.
Cant say im a fan of the tow hook sorry.

Cheers yeah I am glad I found one finally.

The tow hook I got in black to hide better and drilled it out so I could fit it a lot more 'in' as it poked out too much. Its purely to stop folk reversing into the bumper.

Also made another purchase today but will wait for it to come. Something came up

Defo yeah. 450g over the 440g and it's chunkier and a nice gold colour rather than just boring grey
Looks good mate! I hate emblems, is it really noticeable!? I’ve not seen a skunk2 in person but in pictures the emblem looks really noticeable.
