Default Overhaulin Civic

So being a fan of Overhaulin tv show and Imports, the civic that Chip Foose did was not up to par with my standards. The paint job was rice-like, there seem to be too many Aftermarket parts that went onto the car. What do you all think about the 95' civic that Chip Foose design. IMO on a scale of 1-10, it was a 4, mostly because it was trash and turned into something drivable. What would you rate it?

Keep in mind, they overhauled this car in a time when body kits were 'in.'

Kind of funny this thread is made. Only because that Civic on there was like years ago lol
I don't think the Civic they did was that bad. It just wasn't up to par in design as compared to Chip Foose's other designs.

YOUR standards?

You mean like APC people spending money than a Civic is worth to make one stock Civic look like another stock Civic?

The paint is PUKE.... but it's really not that bad, it could have been liek the civic from horsepower tv that put everyone in the "honda scene" to shame with there interfooler and ****.

I would have liked it better if it didn't have huge *** wheels and also a single color paint job. but w/e
