Honda Civic EJ8 Custom Build Widebody Flits
Since the majority keeps nagging about the lambodoors, neon and stating the
easy to post 'ricer', I thought it's time to upload an update and yes, the
lambodoors and neon are trashed ;).
But then again there's something new to complain about, since it's not the
OEM version you all like to see! Hmmm, that's something to think about....
complains about modified cars and yet, your youtube search stopped by
looking at my video :P :)
Back to the content of the video, it's a complete custom build wide body
which took me almost a year to finish. Rims are from Racinghart. Front 9,5J
With 225*35*18. Rear are 10J With Falken 245*35*18 Curious of the replies,
i'll be waiting :)
