The Story

This car started as a regular civic and my daily driver. As I dove into Texas culture and made friends in the community, I slowly over the course of 3 years transformed it to what it is today. I never would have imagined that my civic and I would land over 20,000 followers and become a beacon for information for people looking to modify theirs. Many people have asked me why I didn't just start with a Type R with the expensive parts I put into this car, but when I first bought the car FK8 prices were absurdly high (even for used). I also realized that I had an opportunity to show people that the FK7 platform is a solid one that you can modify properly.
