sonni_kuba 2001 'Mugen' J32A2/6MT Accord

Say hello to Nami, my 2001 Honda Accord coupe. She started off as a bone stock people mover on my wife's side of the family. A few fender benders and owners later, I saved her from the chopping block of a dealer trade-in in 2010. Having fallen in love with her spacious and comfy interior, I decided to spruce up the exterior with inspiration from her cousins overseas.

The Inspiration

I don't think the shop did a good job blending the paint together. The front clip (bumper, hood, and fenders) looks ALOT lighter than the rest of the car.

Other than that it looks good.
