Creative New Ways to Supe Up Your Honda Civic Hatchback
If you’re the owner of a Honda Civic hatchback, you’re probably a part of the tuner culture. What’s a tuner, you ask. A tuner is someone who constantly adds custom features, designs engine upgrades to his vehicle. Think Fast and Furious. Tuners like to show off their cars, so it’s probably a safe assumption you’re not content with the boring shade of red the factory painted your Honda.
Honda Civic hatchbacks are a favorite among enthusiasts for customizing. From a custom paint job with intricate details to a stellar sound system, drivers of the hatchback Civic find all kinds of ways to customize it to suit their personalities.
Start With the Paint
Even getting a paint job in another solid color has become passe. These days, Honda Civic hatchback drivers compete to have the most unique paint job in town. That might be a green dragon theme, complete with fire breathing dragon on the hood, 3D flames on the side, or even a shadow of a samurai on the side panels.
Consider your car as a canvas. Just like a painting or a tattoo, you can add artistic touches that speak to who you are.
The outside of your Honda Civic hatchback isn’t the only thing that can be improved upon. Drivers of the hatchback love replacing the standard paneling with a color and texture that matches the outside. You can upgrade the stereo system and speakers, as well as the seats (zebra print, anyone?).
While you’re on a roll, think of other ways you can stand out. Some Civic hatchback owners replace the Honda manufactured doors with DeLorean style doors that open at the top. Space age! You can also add custom rims or hubcaps, bras, grills or chrome parts to accentuate your hatchback’s awesome factor.
Getting Under the Hood
If you’re mechanically inclined and are into racing, consider suping up your Honda Civic hatchback’s engine to give it more get-up-and-go. You can buy aftermarket parts at a decent price, and before you know it, your hatchback will be converted into a super fast cheetah car!
Show it Off
Once your creation is complete, don’t neglect your bragging rights. Submit it to be featured in one of the customized car magazines or websites, enter it in a car show, or start your own car blog. You can get publicity for your hard work and even win prizes for your Honda Civic hatchback.
