This is one epic little civic! Very good build, very good quality parts, very good skills. I share the same sort of taste's in modifications!

 

Very clean and very simple. I wouldn't change a thing about it.

 

Can i ask where you got the wheels powdercoated? Im trying to find someone good for mine!
