Default Feezy's Build Thread - 2002 New Formula Red

I figured it's about time I make a post for my current S2000.

I sold my previous S2000 about 5 years ago and I have regretted it everyday since. I started hunting for an S2000 a few years back but I just couldn't find one with the right combination of year/mileage/color/options that I wanted. I knew I wouldn't be happy with anything other than what I was specifically after, and after several close calls (One of which I was holding my pen on the papers for an 08 Apex Blue CR when my buddy called and talked me down) I ended up scoring exactly what I was after.

I have always had this vision of what I thought an S2000 should look like. The hardest part for me has always been wheels, specifically on New Formula Red. Wheels either make of break the color. So as I started the hunt for the car I decided I would eventually end up with a set of Blitz 01's... until I saw another members car here on these boards. A guy posted pictures of his NFR S2000 with a set of wheels I had never seen before and I was instantly in love. I pretty much decided at that point I was going to land me a set of those wheels and save them for the day I managed to find another S2000.

Fast forward a few months, I'm browsing Autotrader. I click a link and to my surprise the member from S2KI had his car listed. After speaking with him for quite some time he offered me a deal I couldn't refuse. Ironically enough not only did the car have the wheels that I had set my mind on, it met ever single other criteria that I had been searching for. 02-03, NFR, no rear wing, no side strakes, no paintwork, no accidents, around 40k or less miles, ect. Only problem was he lives in Indiana and I live in Arizona. After some thinking I decided it was time to finally pull the trigger on another S2000.

I flew out to Indiana and drove the car back. I have a close buddy who lives in Lexington, KY so after picking up the car I drove down there, crashed for a few days, and then proceeded to make the drive home. It only took me two days to make the drive and I had an absolute blast.

I have done a few small things to the car so far, but nothing to major other than the plate. I need to redo the sticker, but I have just been to lazy.

I wanted to get a few pictures of the car as it sits today, so here we go.

I want to give a big thank you to Adam - adrs2k. It's because of him that I have all of these fantastic photos of my car. If your in the area and thinking about getting some photos of your car I would recommend sending him a PM.

That's it for now.

I have some parts coming in. Some big, some small, but I really think they will bring the car together.

Updates coming soon.

So clean. It's nice to be back in the S, huh? I sold my first one back in 07. Took me until October 2009 to finally get in another one. I love these cars.

Looks good but the Pedobear with the "dowant" next to the little kid faces is a bit much, stuff belongs on civics. Love NFR though.

I actually really like it. Those wheels look really aggressive. Size/offset?
