In the weeks surrounding the build the workshop was flat out with service work and found very little time to do anything to the Civic. Yet every spare moment Hamish had, parts were removed from the Civic and wire brushed and painted. All the small brackets in the engine bay, the rocker cover and even the strutt brace got a look in.
Another day was spent on the intake pipe. By now were were posting regular updates to our Facebook page and people were showing a large amount of interest in it. The pressure was on to have this thing running at the BBQ. Jon worked his usual magic and made some great modifications that took days, look neat, clean and easy.
We had the thing running. The fuel light was on and it had no rego but we had it done with a few days up our sleeve.
The day of the BBQ came and the Civic was out there for all to see. The car ran and ran for many hours as it was the source of music for the day. We were pleased to see a lot of interest in the car. Whilst there were other cars on show that day that were far superior to it, people still flocked around it to see the progress of what was happening to the Civic.
