Intro: Pray For Basics
Let’s take a moment to pray for the basics… Stan’s Hyundai Genesis Coupe is FAR from basic and when it comes to quality, he kills it! Stan Misiano (@builttopark) almost gave up on his GC build back in December, 2015 but the world is a better place because he didn’t. He turned it around into one of the cleanest GC builds out there and did all of the work (besides wrap) with his girlfriend in the comfort of their driveway! The craftsmanship and thought that went into this build is incredible to say the least so I hope you enjoy this crispy photoset by Thirdworld photographer Lee Zheng.
Stan only started taking the widebody build idea seriously in Feb, 2016. He has been through a couple looks to say the least. He had a bit of color fever, changing the color 6 times last year. He knew he wanted to do something huge, something that was different than what was out there for the coupe platform and I think he nailed it. This is what his car looked like before the most recent look. Photo by our friend Zuumy
He contacted VR Wheels to spec the incredible GMR SF-3’s and got them ordered immediately. For Stan, the build really centered around the wheels. Mainly, the lips and the overall fitment that compliments the widebody with the deep wheel choice.
He already knew exactly what he wanted to change on the car and had put in months of researching into wheel specs, offset, camber, tire sizes and other micro details to put together the perfect setup. He had the widebody build ready to go by August and debuted at a local event called Summer Sendoff.
The wheels are 19 ×11 front wrapped with 245/35/19’s and 19 x14 in the rear wrapped with 305/30/19’s. Stan has excellent taste when it comes to wheels, these GMR SF-3’s have white faces, black hardware with brushed lips. The reverse flat lip is 6’’ in the front and a mind-boggling 9’’ in the rear.
Stan got his air suspension ready to go that month, but later had some issues finding the right rear suspension and had to make adjustments. In the rear he settled on AirHouse 2 rear bags with custom offset brackets, PBM rear upper control arms, ISR rear upper traction arms, ISR rear lower traction arms and ISR rear toe arms. For the front he is running D2 Racing front air struts with camber plates. When he is aired out, the front is at -8.5 and -11 degrees of camber. The setup is managed with an AirLift AutoPilot V2 digital management system and is running dual Vlair 380cc compressors and a raw aluminum 5 gallon tank with external water trap.
Overall the build is meticulously modified, right down to the details. From the Angry Orchid’s shift knob to the custom headlight setup and the intense exterior aesthetics. The exterior is made up of a Gemini carbon fiber hood, Gemini lip-type carbon fiber trunk, modified rear under diffuser, rear bash bar, Typhoon chassis mount, GT wing brackets and the Street Faction 69” carbon fiber wing. If you look at the back closely you can see that the wing is not actually attached to the trunk lid. I think makes it look sleek and allows it to be functional which is always a plus!
Stan’s motivations for building a wide body Genesis Coupe was to do something different. Stan looked at widebody Toyota 86s and saw that there were builds out there that truly complemented the aesthetic of the widebody with a proper setup. Nobody had done that yet for the Genesis Coupe. I am sure this won’t be the last quality build that Stan does and we look forward to linking up more with him. Check out the build on Instagram @builttopark and check out the full part list below.
