Ira Alani Fouquette has always been a fan of the JDM Accord, having already owned a CD6. He’s also an avid builder, and says the slow and lengthy process, which is arguably a turn off to some, has been his favorite aspect of modifying the 2009 Acura TSX. Fouquette has plans for new paint patterns on the fuel tank, as well as a custom trunk lid.
