Picked up a 2017 Civic Type R this week. I really didn't need another Honda, but couldn't pass this one up.

So here it is project "EvilR" it comes pre smashed with lots of goodies :p

I will try and keep this thread up to date as we rebuild this beautiful car.
Lot more to come!!! Stay tuned

Wow what are your plans for her? It doesn't look bad from the photo but do you know if the frame is straight?

Just to fix it up and use it for a summer daily. I will probably buy a ktuner and a nice set of wheels for it eventually. That is actually the good side lol, it also has front end damage as well.

Overall the car isn't to bad and is worth fixing. Driver side seat bolt is deployed and the steering wheel. Rest of the interior is like new the car only has 12 thousand miles.

Front end will need quite of few parts. I have been trying to find used OEM so I don't have to buy directly front Honda, but that seems near impossible.

List for replacement parts I will need (quick list)

-bumper
-hood
-passenger fender
-corner markers
-lights
-grill
-rad
-rad support
-bumper beam
-ac/lines
-rear bumper cover
-rear hatch

I am thinking about buying carbon fiber hood and fenders since they need replaced anyway.

Who has carbon body panels installed? How is the fitment?

if you know a Body Shop that works closely with a Honda dealer, there’s a program where Honda sells popular body parts (hood, bumper, etc) for the price of "jobber" parts. They want to go get some of that market back.

True, I could go that route as well.
