Jeff C. & Gerwen A.
" 07' Civic Si Sedan & 08' Civic Si Coupe"

A big thanks & Shout out to our Gripset photographer John Sediego for always working hard. We are so proud to have a hard working crew, without them Gripset would be nothing. To us Gripset equals family. This family happens toall have the same passion for the automotive enthusiast out there.  

This particular week we are doubling on both Gerwen and Jeff civics. Both of them have different taste and views on how to build their car. However, they both share one similar thought; Less is more. While keeping it clean, they both added a bit of their own personalities to their cars. Let us learn from them what sets them apart from the rest.

Gerwen | Coupe  

 The Motivation
Initially, i did not like the looks of the 2008 civic. When i was at the dealer looking for a new car, suddenly this car transporter truck came with all white cars and just the HBP civic Si in the middle of them all. It was like "sent from heaven" so i purchased it. It took me 2 years to be able to afford modifications for this car. After my last deployment, i saved a little bit of money and started buying parts for it. Then i met a lot of car enthusiasts like myself and they have been a great help with my build.

Jeff | Sedan 
 
The Motivation
Well behind this build was to have something that could be driven daily to work,and to drop off my kids to school with style.
I tried to keep everyone content with the build, my two daughters love hello kitty so that's why i decided to do my door panels and my trunk setup this way. the color choices of the decals also contribute to the liking of my little ones. i want them to get a chance to enjoy and see what their daddy does and why.
also my main thing was to get the car out there and be different... there are probably 100 civics in the neighborhood a few are fixed up but what bothers me is when someone thinks its me.
i know its a common car and thats why during this build i went with a few different setups. from going thru 2 different sets of visors... 3 sets of wheels , 4 different exhaust systems and most of all i think the HFp front and rear and Mugen skirts and  my ride height is one of the things that i am known for and what makes the car different from most. I say get low or get out! 
i cant compete with the kids out now a days and go lower  because i know once i mess something up it comes out of my single father payroll.

I have also been thinking about painting the car another color.
the interior is real simple and clean i want to add a bit more color possibly some seats
but  i must say at this time i am very content with the Civic.
