Not another build thread gk5 content

Hey guys! Been a member for awhile, always lurked but decided to document my build as it goes along. Alittle about myself names Rick Iíve been into cars as long as I can remember and have built up a few the say the least. I use to be very active on many forums like jdmu,Honda-tech nwp etc but as we all know it forums have died off but glad this one is still some what active. Iíll try and keep this thread alive as I get things for the fit.

Here are some pictures from the past to present to keep you guys motivated to follow the build. You can also check out my insta @ driftclub_close_up

Now for the gk5 content. My car is a 2018 Honda Fit sport 6mt in lunar silver metallic. Drove up 2hrs to pick up an orchard white sport 6mt and to my disappointment the car had a super returned funk all over it. Super dark tints all around and like 200 miles on the odo not a new car in my book so I settled for the silver. I think it complements the red and blk very well in my opinion. On to the pics!


Bye bye mx5 club



4/29/18 hello Fit sport!



4/30/18 went and got 55% solargard tints done. Not a fan of dark tints so I found a happy median.






4/30/18 tried out some shift knobs I had at home. Yes I hoard new jdm parts lol
Mugen 5speed gen2. This is a 5 speed version which brings a decal and donít shift miss plate which I wonít use obviously since itís 6 speed.



Carbing high grip in silver. Decided to keep this on for the time being. the polish look was driving me crazy so I put it in my magnetic tumbler with stainless media to satin it out a bit. Matchís the silver trim much better now.





Also put on one of these little tein magnetic cell phone holders cause they look cool.

It works pretty well for me, idk how it’ll work with bigger heavier phones but I use it on an iPhone 6 regular and it seems to hold up.

If you're a bit keen on your shifter matching your interior, you might like the 2016 CR-Z's shifter. It has the same black leather and copper/orange stitching as the Fit Sport interior.
