Nick Bower  Nick. Minnesota. 2010 Civic Si FA5. 0 RWHP. Automotive detailer and student at the U of M.

Added another piece to fuel my Mugen addiction last week when I picked up the new Mugen hand stitched leather shift knob from @grfxp for a great price! What's the next Mugen piece I should add to the build... maybe MF10s 🤔 #ridingthehypetrain

I achieved one of my personal car goals the other day and got approved to park in the Showcase portion of Import Alliance! Who else is headed to Nashville for #IASUMMERMEET2017 in a few weeks? Hope to see some of you guys there!

Finally put the sideskirts and all the finishing touches on the car this weekend just in time for another #mugenmonday. After 3 years of sourcing parts and waiting patiently, the civic's final look is complete! Like I said in my last post, I seriously could not be happier with how the car turned out. The OEM fit and finish is absolutely perfect and everything looks great. Shout out to everyone who helped me get the car to this point! @spring_spring for the rear lip, @rbfortier for the sideskirts, @bruisers_rhd for the wing, @jpeterson_33 and @mugenkimmy for help with the install, and @em1_ruthless for the killer paint and body work!

Of course it had to rain on my first #mugenmonday with the new setup. Installed the OEM Mugen Si rear lip and wing this weekend. Still waiting on the sideskirt hardware which is on backorder to finish the kit and then I'll have some full car pics to post up! I can't believe these parts are finally on the car. It's been such a long time coming but I couldn't be any happier!

Only one more week until I finally join the #mugenmonday club!

The Civic got a new retrofit this weekend! Upgraded to FX-R 3.0 Bi-Xenon projectors, Orbit shrouds, and the new Morimoto XBT 2.0 Demon eyes with the Bluetooth controller. This setup is absolutely insane and such a step up from what I had before! If you're in Minnesota and looking for a top notch retrofit, check out Nelson Retrofitting LLC!

Had a great time at the MNCEC Ignition 2017 Car Show this past weekend! Got to see lots of old friends and met some new ones too. I also finally dropped of my Mugen parts at the painter yesterday and then car goes in for demon eyes soon. Hopefully I'll have the completed summer look in about a month or so!

Happy Earth Day everyone! Having bright green wheels counts as being festive today right? 😂

Thanks to everyone who came out and made the first MNSI x MidwestK meet of the season a success! It's going to be a great summer full of awesome people and their cars!

The only thing getting me through this dark and rainy Monday is knowing that the first MNSI meet of the year is less than a week away 😅

Finally got to drive the Civic for the first time this year. No Mugen parts yet as I'm still getting strung along by my shipping claim with USPS but fingers crossed it'll be ready for the first big meet in May!
