The one thing that air suspension is able to do is to unite automotive fans of differing makes and models under a common umbrella of respect.  Hideki Fernandez lives and breathes this ideology that he channeled into his 1996 Honda Civic build.honda-civic-ek-air-lift-klutch-sl1-airsociety-bagged-suspension-006This Danbury, Connecticut native grew up from humble beginnings and learned at an early age to appreciate things that he owned as they might not be around forever.honda-civic-ek-air-lift-klutch-sl1-airsociety-bagged-suspension-009Hideki’s appreciation for his Midori Green Honda Civic showed off when he decided to carefully trade in his stock bumpers for a set of front and rear factory SIR models.honda-civic-ek-air-lift-klutch-sl1-airsociety-bagged-suspension-007keeping it in the family, next up came a set of tasteful Integra Type R front seats coupled to a pair of Takata 4 point safety harnesses for good measure.honda-civic-ek-air-lift-klutch-sl1-airsociety-bagged-suspension-003Of course, now that the bodywork was down, Hideki needed a set of rollers that truly accented the subtly hyped up exterior. In came a set of 16×9″ Klutch Wheels SL1 with custom offsets to get that perfect wheel fitment.honda-civic-ek-air-lift-klutch-sl1-airsociety-bagged-suspension-008Wanting to preserve his freshly painted body for as long as possible, Hideki knew he needed to get air ride. Out went a phone call to Bag Riders and before he knew it he was knee-deep in Air Lift air suspension boxes.honda-civic-ek-air-lift-klutch-sl1-airsociety-bagged-suspension-005A complete EK Civic kit full front and rear air suspension alongside Air Lift’s Autopilot V2 management, 3/8″ air lines, a 5-gallon skinny tank, and single ViAir 440c compressor shortly made their way onto his ride to complete the project he started months earlier.honda-civic-ek-air-lift-klutch-sl1-airsociety-bagged-suspension-010Big thanks go out to VRaceWorks out of NYC for all the help putting this ride together, Peter Graca for being not only a killer photographer but great friend, his boy Earl for the non-stop help whenever he needed it, and finally (and most importantly) Hideki’s family for supporting his dreams and ambitions.honda-civic-ek-air-lift-klutch-sl1-airsociety-bagged-suspension-002
