The words daily driver and perfection rarely go together in the car world but in this case it does. Not only does Josh daily his civic hatch, but he drives it at least 75 miles a day during his daily commute. If you have ever tried to daily a clean car, then you know all about the struggle to keep it mint.

Josh picked up this car about 6 months ago bone stock minus a set of Skunk2 lowering springs. Since then he has completely transformed the civic into what you see today.

  2. Can please someone tell what is the paint code, really love it.........thanks in advance

    1. The color is Grand Prix white with a light blue pearl added to it according to his Stance Works thread http://www.stanceworks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44112&page=2

  3. Sick setup, Josh! I've admired the car (and of course, the EM1) for awhile now, but just today I saw the Stance Works thread when you got it back from paint. Man, the nitpicking lol! The genuine BBS' are sick (of course), but I liked it even with the CCW reps on, it was a dime in my eyes! Creative color, too. Never thought about taking an OEM color and adding a light pearl to it--dope brotha! Take it easy, man.
