We have not featured an Alabaster Silver Metallic sedan as Accord of the Month since our very first in the series. This sedan out of Texas certainly caught our attention and happens to be team mates with a previous Accord of the Month. After featuring this car in a photoset post a few months back, we knew we had to take a deeper look. Our Accord of the Month for August 2016 is Jordan Brown’s 2008 EX-L V6 sedan.
Jordan’s added the full Mugen lip kit to the front, sides, and rear. The side skirts and customized rear lip are authentic Mugen. Other things have been changed to help complete the look. The aftermarket grille, clear corners in the headlights, and LED fog lights from The Retrofit Source really help clean up the front end. Jordan also swapped his tail lights over to a set of aftermarket LED tail lights. By painting the window trim, roof, and decklid spoiler black he brought a little bit of contrast into the build.
Jordan’s picked up a set of VIP Modular VL550 for his sedan. The simple 5 spoke design is a great look for this sedan especially when they are tucked under the fenders like this. The fronts are 20″ x 10″ +32 and the rear wheels are 20″ x 10″ +27. Pretty nice specs for the sedan and with lips as big as these it’s hard to complain. One thing interesting about these wheels are the lightening pockets, the little areas between the hardware that’s been bored out a bit to reduce overall weight; as a side effect they usually look pretty awesome in photos too!
This sedan is laid out using Airrex struts all around paired with Accuair’s E-Level management. Kustomz Unlimited (Website / Facebook) went all out on this air install. The tank is painted M3 Gunmetal and the VIAIR 400c compressors are mounted directly to it using the Exo mounts with polished hardlines.
Jordan’s added a few of his own touches in the interior by replacing all the bulbs with LEDs and wrapping the interior trim with 3M Silver Carbon Dinoc vinyl. The trunk has been reupholstered in black suede and diamond stitched as well.
Jordan customized the engine bay by having some pieces powder coated and hydrodipped. The intake manifold, strut bar, and intake pipe for his Takeda Stage 2 intake were all powder coated Candy Blue. Most of the engine bay plastics were hydrodipped Satin Brushed.
In summary, this is another clean car out of Team Square 1 down in Texas which should not be surprising to anyone at this point. We are excited to see what else Jordan has in store for this sedan, but it’s looking pretty awesome as it is. Make sure to follow Jordan and his build on Instagram and check out what he’s talking about on the forum!
