We love to see builds that are constantly changing and evolving as the owners style evolves, and this is a car that has certainly done that. It has gone through quite a few phases, but we feel like the latest one is the best one yet. The not-so-common Rennen wheels really help set the build apart. Our Accord of the Month for September 2016 is Danny Pesante’s 2008 LX I4 sedan.
The exterior of Danny’s car has been completely transformed from the stock form with a lot of Modulo and Inspire goodies. He replaced the factory grille with the chrome Modulo grille which really goes well with the clear corners in the Inspire headlights. This sedan has Modulo front lips, side skirts, and rear lip which helps the car look even lower when aired out. Another modification that we absolutely love on this sedan are the Inspire power folding turn signal mirrors. They are still relatively expensive (for authentic ones) and somewhat difficult to find so we do not see them all that often. Danny also converted the trunk garnish to the Inspire trunk garnish and topped it off with LED taillights and trunk lights.
The step-lipped 20″ Rennen CSL wheels are certainly one of the more eye-catching parts of this car and definitely took the car to the next level when he mounted them. They are a square set up in 20″ x 10″ +38mm all around wrapped in 245/35 Nankang NS20 tires. Danny has paired Accuair’s SwitchSpeed with Truhart air struts to lay this car on the ground and tuck wheel all around, and we must say it looks great. Danny’s spent a good bit of time working on his trunk too with a custom hardwood floor. He also reupholstered a lot of the trunk with tan suede which really ties in his interior to the trunk.
An area of Danny’s sedan that really shines is his interior. Pictured here he’s had a lot of the interior wrapped with Bride fabric. This has since changed but unfortunately not pictured, and we can’t wait to see the new look! He has also had the seats completely reupholstered in diamond stitched leather, which looks phenomenal. When we see so many accomplish this with seat covers, which still look nice, it’s a breath of fresh air to see someone completely reupholster the seats. The diamond stitched leather also got incorporated into the door panels and pillars as well.
We hope to watch this car continue to evolve, but the car’s current state is pretty impressive. With the amount of custom stuff Danny has had done to this point, we can only imagine what else he has in store. Make sure to follow Danny and his build on Instagram.
