Soon after purchasing the car, I met a bunch of friends and joined their team, which came to be known as Team Lowered. We then started our journey to make our cars beautiful. In the earlier days, all I did was change the rims and lower the car a little with the help of coilovers.
Soon I met a few friends who were in love with ‘stance’. We got together for a few gatherings, and the looks of my Accord changed over time. From body kits to rims, it was a slow process.
Soon after, we decided to join the International Auto Modified, IAM for short, which was held in JB. This was a big event, no doubt. I had to do something to my Accord to make it stand out a little. It had to be nice, and it had to be fierce.
So, in the end, I decided to go with something along the lines of Thai Styling. If you’re not familiar with Thailand’s car modification trends, this is a good time to find out. Thai people like to put carbon fibre on everything – carbon bonnets, fenders, doors, GT wings, mirrors and trunks. They also love gauges on their dashboard. Did I mention that they love titanium as well?
That’s what I did. I went online to find Thai suppliers in order to custom make parts for my Accord, which turned out pretty well. They were all slowly shipped to Malaysia, and slowly assembled when I had the time.
Currently, it has Akana made carbon fenders and bonnet. A custom front bumper was also made for my Accord.
The interior is graced with various titanium bits including bars, handles and the steering wheel.
