Chiang has opted to paint his car an orange pearl and has added a carbon Varis bonnet. For the face, Chiang has selected a Tongue SiR front lip with winglets. Also to keep up with the USDM trend, yellow tinted foggies and a black leather bonnet bra has been added which all seems to just scream Murrrica!
In stark contrast to its humble and aging surroundings, this bright orange beast glistens with new age freshness. A trait mirroring the country of Thailand itself, where you’ll see many traditional aspects mixed with the technological modern age. The fresh paint and show stopping stance truly brings this normally overlooked commuter car into something to be gawked at.
Chiangs interpretation of USDM is achieved by fitting an aggressive set of RF1 wheels, sitting in at ( 15×8 + 20). Pulling the chassis within a bees dick to those treacherous Thailand roads are H DRIVE Model S Spec shocks. In order to squeeze in those low offset wheels Chiam dialed in -5 camber all around.. Definitely not for the faint hearted. When you’re rolling that low in this kind of environment it sure does take some guts and a lot of dedication. They sure do, do it for the love.
An increasing trend is to mix traditional race inspired aero together with a well fitted car. These winglets do the job as well as the carbon hood, black roof and lip.
So picturesque…Chiang’s sedan is almost as well groomed as the scenery!
I’ve always had a soft spot for four doors, they are actually quite popular in Thailand.
Checkered curbs in Thailand makes it look as if a race track was built around a temple, quite stunning to see this juxtaposition of old and new.
One last shot of this fitted civic, it’s American in essence but with that trademark Thai flare. They really know how to do it out here and Chiang’s EK sedan is just one example of this.
