    My 84 Honda Civic Project.
    Started it a few weeks ago.
    But so far I've put the headlights on.
    Modifed the exhaust so it exits out the side.
    And bought masking tape lol.

    More to come.
    Now I'm trying to figure out what kind of paint to use

    Corvette C4 "salad shooter" or "sawblade rims?
    I'm trying to visual how those rims would look on my Honda haha.
    I did a rough mock up of the stock rims I got now.
    Of course the suspension components aren't together yet.
    I just want to know if I'm going to have to do some mods to the fenders to accomadate the wheels and tires?

    Thanks!

    Putting an engine in a "curbside" model car.
    Hey guys,
    (I hope I used that term in the title correctly)
    Anyway I just ordered a 1983 Honda Civic 1/24 scale model http://www.tamiyausa.com/items/plastic-model-series-20/1-24-scale-sports-car-8000/honda-civic-hatchback-kit-24051
    And I want to put an engine as well as the other components that are needed to pull off a good look for the engine bay and such.
    I also want to use these rims http://www.modelscientists.com/products/1-24-18inch-bbs-rs-replica-wheels-w-stretched-tyres
    I'm still thinking about what color I want to paint the exterior..think I might go with a two tone Black/Grey. I want to use colors that are used on actual cars too
    But my main point if interest is putting an engine in the car.
    Thanks!
    If I wasn't specific with something, let me know.
