Hi all

Some of you may remember me from my ivory R I built a few years back now, Which I do miss very much haha

After selling the car for parts I bought my first house and over the last couple years have been extending and building and doing anything other than cars (although my garage is 40sqm allowing for future car building Razz , I have now finished my house so have now got a new project which I bought back in June.

I am now currently building a 91 Honda CRX vtec, fully stripped bucket seats coilovers and all the usual track bits and bobs, I am currently installing a k20 into it which should be an interesting track car for next year.

I will be keeping an eye on the forum for meets and trackdays next year and try to tag along on a couple as every time I met up with you guys previously was always a good day and a laugh with minimal bitching etc as found on most forums,

Cheers Glenn

Life takes over at times every year let alone day I say will do this and that. Ain’t touched my R’s in months and my luck don’t help the odd time I book it in other places which is rare they let me down.

Not sure which host people are using for pictures but you can now upload straight from your phone. As for events the club still do a fair few ( although it takes a certain few on here a lot of time and numbers ain’t high) my self in have not made any this year
Fair few bob and others still get to a fair few track days and Germany inc gp and Nurburgring happens once a year

Did your shell ever survive ? Oh and you still got pics of your R get a few up

Yes the shell went to a guy called tobi from the midlands was a nice lad still chat to him now and again, yes that's right a k20a2 from the ep3, it's far from a straight forward install but I sure I will get there unfortunately though most bits come from America as its a relatively rare conversion there are a few about though, I will get a build thread in the other cars section soon, I do still have many photos of my white R which I will also upload.
What is the electrical issue you've got mate?
Thanks for the link woody I will have a look into it

The rear looks mean, I like what you've done with the bumper. Side exits seem really popular over there aswell.

Glenn did you buy that just over a week ago? i was bidding on one on ebay Shocked

Exactly the same colour, rear spoiler everything, i missed the end but think it sold for around the 2k mark.

I bumped into Tobi at Cadwell park around 3 weeks ago, yeah hes a nice lad and car gave him no problems at all on the day!

Cheers for the comments guys and yes you are correct I should have kept it haha
No I bought this one in April Bob, used it on a couple trackdays but nothing too much, was a quick car for a 1.6 but just lacked the straight line speed. Tobi is a good guy.
How's the business going Bob, do you map hondata?

Business is going great thanks Glenn come a long way in the last 3-4 years and mapped a fair few cars now with some goid results too.

Funny you ask about Hondata as i should have done a remap on a pulsar owners fn2 today but i had to cancel for certain reasons. Told him ive never mapped one before but certainly dont frighten me so hes letting me have a crack at it, so il let you know how it goes with it thumbsup
My ep3 also has Hondata and running 244bhp but never really had the chance to go through the software but from what ive seen it looks like a very in depth programme which i need to have a good read up on
