Joel Quesnel 2008 Honda Fit TBGLIVE PAS 01

The Honda Fit you see here isn’t Joel Quesnel’s first. After owning a 2007 base model for five years, he noticed how good the Fit's Sport Edition looked with skirts and a spoiler. From that moment on, he knew his next car would be the Fit Sport, and it wasn’t long before he purchased the 2008 Sport Fit that you see here.

The biggest challenge for Quesnel while building was not knowing where to start. “Having a car that was rarely modified was one thing but not knowing where to start was another,” he tells us. However, with a little time and experimentation, he figured out what he had to do to build the car for himself. Despite the challenges, says the reactions to a modified Fit make it all worth while.

Quesnel emphasizes the important of building a car for yourself, and for your own personal taste, and extends his thanks to his friends who helped him get to where he is today through automotive knowledge.
