In loved with 90s Japanese Cars charisma makes Riswan Rusdiansyah began to interested on building some of Japanese most favorite products. Honda Civic was one of his major choice on modifying cars. As an enthusiast, we asked Riswan on how could he chose Honda as his companion. The majority of the parts and the timeless shape of Japanese craftmanship was making Riswan in loved with Honda.

On building cars, we’ve seen Riswan Rusdiansyah as a pure enthusiast. Lots of high quality parts yet rare was applied on this car. We realize that personalizing a car from scratch was not easy. It needs a lot of dedications, also lots of money to put into this. Of course this is not a Ferrari or Lamborghini, nor a Nissan GTR or a Lancer Evolution. But this Honda Civic EG was a different beautiful creatures to look at. Especially with the perfect touch of the owner will make the car stands out among others

You may realize that the market price of the used Honda Estilo are skyrocketing nowadays. It’s true that this car getting cooler as it’s getting rare on the streets. Many JDM enthusiast was looking for it and the aftermarket parts was still available abroad. That’s what makes the car cool. You know, not just the wheels that makes the car. But the parts that makes the car, literally 😛

Modifying a car to make it stands out or making different yet unique is an usual story. let’s put crazy ideas with many stacks of money would make it wicked than ever. But, Making a car that both good looking yet drive-able and fun to drive it was a different story. Riswan also admit that it was harder than just to make it look ‘stance’ or what so ever.It tooks a lot of effort. Finding the parts both local and abroad, waiting for it to be shipped, also lots of money spent was quite hard.

But the good thing is, Any story related to this car he enjoyed it.

The Journey with this car was also not as smooth as you may imagines. Riswan admitted that once he bought this car, he blown the engine that causing him to change the engine block. Collecting the interiors as he wanted also hard. Like for now, he still restoring the interiors just to make it looks good based on his standards.

We took Riswan’s story as an example of a good enthusiast. A purist maybe. We also believed that the good quality of the parts will make it looks good also. So we keep support the quality of the build yet the originality of the parts like Riswan did to his cars. Anyway, another thing that make the story looks interesting. We’ve seen that Riswan really enjoys with his build by collecting the parts and put it step by step. Enjoys every miles spent with it. Not just to build it to maximum and sell it to another person. Good job, man!

THE VIDEO IN THE MAKING

In the making of the video was quite challenging. First we need to took a video at night with minimum lightning equipment, minimum rigging equipment, yet we can make it through.

Actually the formation of this shoot was just Me, Iman, and Ano (Tonan). With my APSC camera, Iman’s mirrorless cam, and Ano’s full frame equipment, we divided the team into 2 yet with lots of work to come. Me and Iman for taking the videos, and Tonan who fully in charge on taking beautiful pictures. Azka also came by to the locations just to support us if we have any trouble on the streets.
