    So I'm back with another ek4, after selling my last ek civic a few years ago I always new i would end up with another. Drove a dc5 for a year then a wee mr2 while I searched for a low mileage example for over a year but I've finally found one. This one came up locally from a friend who bought it in Scotland with 28,000 from an older fella who Had it from new. He drove it for just over a year then took it off the road with 40,000 on it as he didn't want to put the miles up going to and from work. Sense then it has been sat in his garage and yard gathering dust and moss lol. So today I got it home and in my neighbours tent for a full service. Anyway I'm rambling on so here is a couple of pictures of her looking sorry for herself. I have a few parts gathered up for her so I'll post more pics as I fit everything and get different bits done.
    The plan is to just bring it back to its original glory with a few subtle changes.
    All comments welcome :nerv:
