We see a lot of clean 8th generation Accord coupes on the forum and Facebook group, but still this one stands out. This coupe is another great example of how you can still be subtle and clean. The dark theme on this coupe came together perfectly. Our Accord of the Month for October 2015 is J Anthony Dela Cruz’s 2010 LX-S I4 coupe.
The first thing that grabs your attention on this coupe is the killer vinyl wrap. The Charcoal Matte Metallic from Avery is a great look for the coupe. The black accents on the mirrors, front lip, grille, and roof really come together nicely. Other common coupe modifications are also present, such as the entire Honda Factory Performance lip kit, M3 style roof spoiler, and trunk lip spoiler off of the 6 cylinder model.
This coupe is laid out on AirForce air struts with Accuair’s E-Level management. This allows the HFP lip kit to nearly touch the ground! He’s also using a 3 arm camber kit from SPC in the rear to keep things in line. He’s also got a killer trunk setup with a diamond stitched floor and a false wall to conceal all the plumbing of his suspension and leave him with a nice, clean trunk (unfortunately not pictured).
These wheels compliment the wrap incredibly well. They are a set of GMR GS-1‘s with pretty aggressive specs: 19″x9.5″ +5 in the front and 19×10.5 -3 in the rear. The faces are matte black and the lips are black chrome with 24k gold rivets tying it all together. The combination of Joe’s air suspension and these set of wheels leave you with fitment that is near perfect.
The interior of Joe’s coupe really pops. The red leather Clazzio seat covers really stand out against the dark theme of this car. The diamond stitched inserts and black piping looks awesome paired with the black Junction Produce neck pads. He’s also swapped a shift knob and boot out of the 9th generation Accord!
As previously stated, this coupe is an perfect example of keeping it simple and clean. The whole package seems well thought out and it flows very well. We like insane wheel and alignment specs just as much as anyone, but as seen on Joe’s coupe, it isn’t necessary to break necks. Make sure to follow this build on Instagram!
A few words from Joe:
I’d like to make a shout out to my crews and family Lowballers and SauceBauce for holding it down. ZeroPaint for the wrap, AutoFashion for consistently giving me guidance and inspiration and of course my friends and family!
