Thanks. That was a pleasure to make transaction with you.
Can't wait to see them in. Take care of 'em. :)
Thanks dude :)

Jesus, some seriously baller parts being thrown at this! Some build mate, will be following this one for sure! excellent work :nice:
Thanks man. Will be on underbody towards the end of the summer :D

I don't think that it can get any better than this - great base to start with and perfect choice of genuine parts. I will be waiting for more updates on this.
Thanks dude.

: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:

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?

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.

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.
