Didn't think an S2000 would be seen here! Nice purchase.

Another car to the collection


I've been keeping this on the low, but a couple weeks ago i've been hunting for a new car. Went to a few dealerships but nothing got my attention really. Until one day i was doing some work stuff at the shop and a advertisment popped up!

Yahoo Auctions Japan, but it was a MR Edition Evo IX, super clean, but not really what i was looking for so i searched around for a bit until i found this:




A super clean 2005 AP2 S2000 in the OEM Formula Red color, black leather interior, stock F22C engine with 144k km on the clock and never been in a acident and no rust on it whatsoever, an all around beauty of a car! Only downside for me is the soft top but i may look for a hardtop soon.

Mod list is pretty nifty but simple, it sits on Skunk2 Pro-C adjustable coilovers and 18" CST Hyper Zeros with Toyo tires


I ended up winning the auction for 9.5k V$ and went down to Nagoya to pick it up yesterday, i must confess i'm not really a honda guy, i've owned a D-Series EG civic before that i ended up getting rid of because i didn't like it but the S2K and the F22C i must admit that are slowly getting in my heart!



Finances: 31922 - 9500 (uhh...a...honda...s2000....) = 22422 V$

Thanks Skip!
Yeah i've decided to go for something i normally wouldn't consider since i'm not really a honda guy, but the S2K is one of the models that go against the standard in my opinion :D

*thanks for the bump on the post as well*

It looks really nice, though, I'd suggest keeping the soft top, as most swap to hard top, making yours both unique and original.

S2000 is definitely no ordinary Honda haha. Nice rims on it too, reminds me of the S2000 Driftphantom used to have.

I agree with keeping the soft top cause it's easier to take it off so you can go on a topless cruise. :D

I should've bought a S2000 instead
, I agree with Skip and Fern about the keeping the soft top see if it's still mint though don't want any leaks when it rains.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words! :D (can't tag all of you hahah)
I'm gonna consider to keep the soft top i kinda agree with the point of view.


Zenkifix


Had a bit of time to spare and decided to drive to a friend's house and we fixed the rear bumper that i damaged a few weeks ago in a street sesh, it's all paint prep'd but i'm considering to repaint the car fully but in a different color.

Also got a last minute deal on these navan valances:




And another color for my silvia, hey atleast they kinda match the B-Wave :crying:
Paid 350 V$ for them, makes a hell of a difference in the rear.

Anyway, more updates on all cars soon!


Finances: 22422 - 350 (navan valances) - 20 (body filler) = 22052 V$

hahahah ikr
Not yet planned, have a few in mind like OEM Deep Fuschia or Lavander Frost

# Ward : Dudee that looks so good and you finnaly got a decent rear bumper

Bumper is still the same only with some body filler haha

# Renaruto : Those stripes on the rear lights are just soo 80's AAAAAAAAAAAAAA <3 :p
Ayyyyy thanks :D

# holeecrab : i'm not christian or some shit but jesus fucking christ

lmaoooo thanks G!


Borrowed my friend's SSR MESH for the front (since i'm running his rears too i wanted to see how it looks) i kinda fuck with the style of all 4 mesh wheels tbh.

Oh also i forgot to plug in my license plate lights so i had to remove the bumper again, and i forgot to bolt the plate back in place.
And yeah i kinda ran it over with my wheel so it's all bent and crooked now, but i'm keeping it as is, gives it a street vibe.

And the mandatory night shot!

Maxed out the Skunk 2 Pro-C coilovers. It sits pretty low but still has a bit of a wheelgap. This car is growing on me, its so fun to drive!

Drove around for a while and took this pic of the 2000:

Thanks @Soju and @Sleepin mOnkey!

RIP S14?


Took the Silvia for some practice runs to a open day event at Sazan Circuit...
Was pretty cool had a blast on that track first time ever being there, event was very well organized.

It was all going well until the worst happened...



Tie rod snapped mid transaction making me lose control and nail my car into a barrier...
I had to call a tow truck and i just got the car back to the cooldown HQ at Osaka so i don't know yet if it has any frame damage, but for now the damage is:



I'll keep this updated on whether i rebuild it or it gets scrapped, i like this car since it's my street toy so we'll see what it can be done to it!

As you will evaluate the damage first tip if the frame rail inst bent afther the firewall 100% salvable but also check the pillars and the main structure of the car (Look For Thick metal) if theres just some easy bent you could cut and re weld the frame or straight it and weld a U metal ovelaying. as for the front its kinda easy to tube but its no impossible replace it with other OEM structure but for all those repairs the welding is the most impotant thing.
