    :bow:This is an amazing build, when we getting more updated pics of all the parts on/in the car?

    Really like the attention to detail with all the new bumper fixings etc. Could do with doing this myself if I could only get a hold of a new front bumper/lip for my pre face lift. Could you pm me the details of who you got yours from if you don’t mind me asking.

    Those wheels are awesome as well, bet they cost a pretty penny :drool:

    Thanks dude,
    Got all parts from Honda - Although all are currently discontinued now. but check with them and see. They could have new old stock.
    They did indeed, but they'll give the EK9 the standout factor it needs :)

    Yeah they will defo make it stand out that’s for sure! I was looking ce28n’s but they are so expensive and think I could do better things to the car with the money.

    You done anything else to the car recently?

    You'll get a set of 15 ce28 in Japan. Usually a few sets on the auctions.
    Not yet, i will at some stage.
    Im not ready to fit anything to it yet.
    I literally have a pile of rare new/used parts waiting to go on it haha.

    Yeah I was looking at getting a set from Japan but so expensive to buy brand new. What auctions sites do you recommend?

    I don’t know how you can just pile the parts up, i’d Want to put them on the car as soon as they arrived but suppose it’s best to get them all on at the same time then it’ll be all fresh.

    I Test fit the yellow recaros into the EK9 for fun around a month ago.
    Dont think they suit it at all, they really are a seat only suited for a DC2.
    I think it might be the red interior.
    They might suit an EK4 SiR.

    Yeah I agree I don’t think they look quite right especially with the red carpet and door cards. Sure you can sell them on for a pretty penny tho :naughty:

    Wow some really nice rare parts you have there. Did you source them all from Japanese auction sites?

    Looks really good.

    Not keen on the yellow seats unless you did the other bits to match?

    Blue seats would look awesome in mine though :lol:

    Nah wouldnt alter the interior of the EK9. Just a random test fit for the lolz.

    Haven't had a chance to try them out yet mate. I plan to but probably not until next year. Have big plans for those parts.

    @Leej8 just wait until you see the underbody early 2019 completely rebuilt with new parts ;)

    I'm not happy to read that :(
    But maybe you're giving up too fast.. the question is if you want to keep the EK9 interior original. If not you can buy EK4 carpet + door cards and havie them trimmed with the black fabric and the yellow stich. I've made something like this with the door cards and arm rest in my car when I fit black & gray recaros and it looked quite good.
