Xul Colon

Xul Colon started building his 1996 Honda Civic EX almost 4 years ago with the goal of creating something that has yet to be seen on the road or at shows. With the help of companies like Gato Performance, Cherry Bomb, WireWorx and Gator Racing, as well as the right-hand drive conversion, it seems that Colon has reached his goal.

“My mind on the build wasn't to be the best but [I’d] sure be the one to stand out or catch peoples eyes,” Colon recalls. “Through the years, a lot of people have help me accomplish my dream and I am thankful to every single one of them. Now my dream [has] come true and I use it as a model to show off my work to the public.”

There’s still a few more changes to be done, however, including the installation of a Gato Performance intake box and changing to Desmond Regamaster EVO white wheels with a 16x7 fitment on Nitto Gen tires with a 204/15/16 fitment. He’s also considering a complete change of the interior color to OEM Honda Domani blue.
