Gel's Honda Civic MB2 auto

I bought my X Reg Honda Civic quite cheaply over 3 yrs. ago.  it needed lots of TLC initially e.g. ball joints, drop links, rear exhaust box, lambda sensor and 2 tyres.
3 years down the line it managed to pass the MOT but had advisories for........  rear brake disc's/pads and handbrake pads........worst of all my MOT stated that there was slight corrosion on the rear structure.....when the surface rust was ground down....... the appearance of solid steel meant there was no need for welding
 
Once I knew the car was structurally sound....I decided to have all the brake disc's/pads renewed and had the underside cleaned and undersealed.......also had the a/c recharged.
 
The engine and auto box behave perfectly so I may have this reliable budget car for another few years.
 
Did I mention .....that I've fallen in love with my wee MB2

    Hello new member with Mk1 GTI

    Hello bud 👍
  2. To be honest I think a wash and hoovering of Christmas tree needles would be more appreciated ?
  3. Those trims look nice mate. Tubs didn't get any goodies off santa. Just the steering wheel as an early one.

    Ho ho ho

    I must be on the sixth set of rear calipers on my aerodeck! Still on the original front ones though. ??

    Ho ho ho

    Happy Christmas y'all! How come rear calipers are such a rubbish design?!?

    Hi from Falkirk

    My dad's was white.. I always loved it on the back roads ? He worked up near Edinburgh and that's where it kept getting nicked and found by the police. When he got a job near Glasgow it got nicked and that was that.

    Hi from Falkirk

    Nice. My dad had a silver over gun metal 2.8i when I was a kid. I loved it... Think that's where the petrol in the blood started. Well, that and the white rs2000 he had before it (until it got nicked for the 4th or 5th time and he never saw it again).

    Once the engine's had a chance to do some decent work the heater works a treat. When I used to use it for the commute though it could not warm up properly for the whole way into work if the traffic was heavy enough (10 miles for up to an hour).

    Cheers, makes sense to me ? I'll give it a shot.. Will probably find that the crud is all that's stopping it leaking ?

    How do you do that bud?

    Dunno. I've had the coolant changed a couple of times since I've had tubs, and have swapped the thermostat a few years ago and have not noticed any difference. The heater in my EG used to take ages to warm up as well. Thought it was just a civic thing ? My 1l 205 heater in my first car was amazing ?

    I'd quite like to get some DAB action in the car for radio 6. I use the Iplayer radio app on my phone, but obviously the quality of streaming isn't as good as DAB.
