Hello s2ki! I thought i'd finally make a build thread and re-introduce myself. I joined s2ki back in 2005. Over the past 10 years I've put together a car i felt that best represents who i am. I put this car together simply for my self satisfaction. I've had quite a few people ask me to make a build thread recently, so here goes nothing...
I bought the s2000 brand new in OCT 2005. from Pasadena Honda. I'm proud to say i am the original owner and hope to stay that way.
Since i will be starting from the beginning of "the build", i will be posting plenty of THROWBACKS to get to present time. Please excuse the poor quality timeline pics.
Be patient cause i will be digging up old photos that i don't know what the "F" we may be doing in the photo.
I just want to say a quick THANKS to the people i looked up to when i first started s2ki. These guys helped pave the way for me.

one of the first times out with the car for a small shoot. i didn't have much going for the car. Pretty much stock with Tein type Flex coil overs on.
I knew from the start i wanted Mugen mf10's. So i called my buddy ICB matt and begged him to sell me a set from his private collection.
Mugen nsx spec mf10's 16x8/17x9 +42. Matt ended up selling me his custom champ white set.
i was super excited to get these in.
i added custom mf10L decals and removed the "L"
All mounted up on 205/50/16f, 245/40/17r yoko es100s.
Later in the early year of 2006 i purchased a few go "faster" parts. (notice i did not say "fast" parts)
I thought it was a bad idea to drive on such rare expensive mf10's so i went to RB Motoring..now known as VR wheels to purchase a "daily driven wheel set" haha.
I adored blitz 01s. so i got this set 17x8 17x9 +45 for $800. I was lucky to find this all original set, it had original Blitz lip decals and Blitz BRW valve stem caps.
got around to mounting 215/45/17f, 245/40/17 Falken 452 tires.
Bought myself a BackYard special spoiler off a s2ki member...mounted that bad boy just in time to roll out to an NWP summer nights meet at Eibach in Corona (back in 2006)
