    CLICK FOR NEW BUILD!!!!!!!




    hey everyone, so i purchased a eg that had a k20a in it about 4 or 5 months ago for a really good deal, it wasnt in the best of shape, or didnt really have the mods done it should have. none the less, ive put in a bunch of time and effort into this car, and its still nowhere near complete.

    seems this is a k20 type r ive basically decided everything needs to be mint, so that is why im going through the extra efforts to make it all as good as can be.

    this is a photo from the day i bought it on the way home



    shot of engine bay



    i then bought a cf hood and spoon mirrors



    i put red suede on my doors, put my old integra seats in, painted the gut to color match the car, changed out all the interior panels from blue to black, also painted the headliner black.



    got myself a spoon replica cf lip,(definently not as strong as real spoon as i used to own one, if anyone has a REAL spoon front lip for sale let me know, i willlll buy)





    i then got a roll cage, it was purple so i color matched it to the car

    then i got some recaros





    then i had to take a little break from the car, had to get a winter car, fix it up yada yada, so it sat for about a month, till i got my new wheeeeelssss





    and now is the time to park it, so i have started to rip it all apart as it is getting a full new paintjob, new rear quarter panels wire tuck and much more.






    POWER WINDOWS








    engines out




    and now time for the fun, i never knew what i was getting myself into or what the previous owner was trying to do, widebody kit or what, but none the less, i knew it was fucked up from the start, but never knew how fucked.

    if you looked straight down the panel, and it was really noticeable from the side molding, from the door to the rear wheel well it would stick out a good inch from where it was supposed to be, it drove me crazy forever, so i bought new rear quarter panels and started to see what the fuck happened under there





    as you can see, there is so much bondo on it, i could actually flatten out the side molding, as if they where shaved basically,

    I think I've seen that car roll by a few times I didn't know it was rocking a k20

    Is it usually parked next to the black eg in the background?

    That picture above the reason I'd buy an EK over an EG, only reason.

    Ya the rust was worse than I was expecting, I'm guessing lots of water or condensation was between the original quarter panel and the slab of metal thrown on top lol, so it did create some more surface rust there, gotta find out a solution to the extra rust lol, and the reason egs passenger side rusts so bad is because they only have a ventilation recirculator on the driver side, so when your driving in the rain or warm then cold there is no way for the humidity to release itself quickly enough to not produce rust, I just leant that recently lol

    Thanks for that man, I'm stoked for the final product too, I'm really anxious to paint it, still gotta pick the color, but as of right now I think im gonna do rootbeer metallic or something very similar to it, I've had flat black, gloss black red and white already so I'm looking to do something a little bit different than oem civic colors, hopefully it will look good

    yowsers! I thought mine was rusty. In my case I used a new set of fenders to make new rear quarter arches. It worked pretty good but yours looks beyond that Wish mine has the K20 though .. Cool build keep it coming

    I already have new rear quarters, the rust just exceeds the new quarter panel by a little bit, but it is not showing on the under side at all, does anyone know if there is a way to remove the rust permanently without replace metal? It does just look like surface it does sand off and look normal again, or is the metal basically infected? I'm guessing it was from the metal on metal contact cause there was space between the two sheets
