We were approached by Honda Canada in 2014 to work with them on another project car for their 2015 Canadian Auto Show Tour. They provided us with a 2015 Honda Fit EX to show what is capable with this economy platform that’s been embraced by the automotive aftermarket. To make it PASMAG’s own, we tackled this project with a JDM and B-spec racing inspiration.
To get the look and feel, we sourced a full Mugen body kit from Japan, courtesy of Options Auto Salon. This kit gives the Fit an OEM fit and finish, while delivering a sporty and aggressive tone. This was then wrapped up in Arlon Graphics’ Aluminum Red vinyl (fan voted on Facebook) by GTA Wrapz for that unique look, shine and feel.
To continue the JDM B-spec vibe, Tein was called upon for a suspension solution and they delivered. PASMAG’s Re-FIT sits pretty on Street Flex coilovers for spirited street and track driving.
Cusco also stepped up to plate to eliminate the body roll in the little hatch with their front and rear sway bars, strut tower bar and front lower arm bar. This chassis is going nowhere.
After seeing Bisimoto’s offerings from his own project Fit at SEMA 2014, PASMAG knew that Bisi’s genius was needed on the Re-FIT. Rolling easy on new axles, sounding and performing better with the new Pulse Chamber muffler and having Puröl engine oil on scene to keep things running smoothly are all definite pluses.
With the help from our partner, Chemical Guys Canada, we were able to get our Re-Fit photo ready for the camera, providing efficient and quick detailing service.
