I still plan on it. I've got 99.9% of everything I need. I might possibly need a slim fan for the A/C. I honestly think it will make the car a better car. It's not 100% factory, as it's been repainted, different suspension, rear disk swap, at one point the rear quarter panel has been replaced, etc., etc. This isn't one of those Bring A Trailer cars, in my opinion. It could sell for a decent amount, but nothing crazy. I'd rather put a more powerful engine in it and make it a better all-around car.

Picked up a B-series OEM intake tube so I can keep the OEM intake box.

Decided to sell the Comptech header and replace it with one that will work with A/C: The OEM B16A intake manifold.

Decided to spend a few minutes cleaning the engine bay. I have yet to spend much time at all under here.

Picked up a windshield repair kit from Amazon and decided to try to reduce the noticeability of the cracks in my windshield before I decide to replace it entirely. I still have another one to do, hopefully tomorrow when the sun is out. I think it turned out really nicely. The crack was in the windshield when I bought the car, so it may have turned out better if it had been fixed soon after it happened.

I had ordered my B-series A/C bracket about a month ago, and SwapShopRacing finally got it to me, but when I went to mock it up, it turns out it is missing the spacers required, and two of the holes were not completely drilled out. A replacement is in the mail now, so hopefully this one is manufactured correctly.

Bolt won't fit through these holes - they aren't drilled through like they are supposed to be.

As far as the S2000. I decided to go ahead and do the OEM airbox mod to get some more noise out of it, as well as swap in a K&N filter.

I also picked up some Ebay side strakes and front lip. They needed some Dremel work to get to fit acceptably. Test fit.

Finally got motivated to get some parts painted. Took off the OEM spoiler, since it was basically faded down to the primer nearly.

Also, new tires!

Got these things installed. I used the OEM trim on the side strakes and front lip to give them a more refined look. I think it makes it look like factory parts, for the most part.

Finally, have some photos of the S2000 at my go-to photo spot.

I figured it wouldn't be a popular opinion. I'm looking forward to seeing whatever you do with it.

Well, I sold the S2000. I bought it for $4800, spent some money on tires, a hard top, K&N filter, front lip, side strakes, and buffed it like crazy, and sold it for $9500. I also got to enjoy it for a few months. Not a bad way to make nearly $3,000.

Now I can put some focus back on the CRX and STi. The STi need some maintenance items like axle boots, endlinks, and other various items.
