Drove car then removed drivers seat & driver's side carpet. Removed seat covers and put in washing machine along with carpet. Cleaned and checked out floor well. Pumped two full spray cans of Waxoil into driver's side sill and the O/S front wing via the small holes that are used to keep the bonnet seal in place. Switched the passenger side seat over to driver's side. You just have to remove the sprung catch that allows the seat to be tilted and move it to the other side of the seat frame. Well worth swopping seat positions if you have a more worn driver's seat  :)
Going to try and get the seat cover repaired then refit on passenger side.

Fired her up, told her we were not going to a car show, drove around the neighborhood and, once again, refused to stop for questions when the guys who constantly fix/beef up their Civics begged me to let them see the car.  Put the car back in the garage and inspected the engine to make sure nothing bad happened, like the usual blown valve cover gasket.
I didn't do it!  ...unless it was good...  ...even then it's still debatable...

Replaced all Plastic Head screws with new ones supplied by 'Slovakia 126 fan' in all the front and rear light lenses.

Not the best quality screws, 3 were broken on arrival and 2 broke in use - not that over tightened them or anything, I over ordered thankfully so had spares.  Majority of them were OK but quality of the 5 that broke were sub standard, so if you buy some, buy too many, just in case as its a lucky dip.

I fitted one moon disc to my spare (with no tyre) couldn't get tyres off other wheels so didn't risk drilling through them.
Also painted (with some metalflake I had spare from my old beach buggy) my oil filer cap and sat in the sunshine looking at it!!

I welded some captive 7/16 unf nuts to a metal plate and welded them in place to take some inertia seat belts.
