Touche. Mostly true, but they would look better with a different setup like I described, and they so happened to be rare. I'm also about good deals, and I got the fenders at non ASM fender type pricing.

They have two versions of the brake lines, coated and non-coated. I chose non-coated, since where I live weather conditions aren't harsh. What i'm impressed about APP is their titanium big brakes; simply gorgeous.

Fabulous Rear Bumper

Yep. That's what I just typed. Debated for a while on whether to jump the gun on bumper, as I haven't seen it on any other S2000 for the sake of reference, and the only photo out there is Fabulous's company photo of the bumper, which isn't the best portrayal of the bumper with all the decals and painted panels, which is difficult to determine how it actually looks. But here you can see its bare body and lines in its full FRP glory. I will be definately be making this work:

Compared to the front bumper which need a few minor alterations, the rear bumper fits pretty well. Had to shave off the quarter panels to prevent from rubbing as the width of the fender liners are thick frp. Will be relocating tabs soon, and go about butchering a bumper.


Preview of whats to come.

Awesome!
I've never seen that bumper before.
Are you planning on painting the whole thing silver or are you going to paint that middle "diffuser" section black?

I was really thinking about painting it black, only if I weren't to cut out the vents.Without the vents, the bumper would look too plain with it painted black. I don't know how valid the parachute affect is, but aesthetically I like how vented bumpers look.

I would def give that center section a matte/ flat black color. Do not do gloss, as it looks funky when driving. It will reflect the road and does not look good.
