Details are important to me, and I feel like in any build it's the details, and custom details if possible, that are one of the most rewarding aspects. So this car will have a few touches that are a little out of the norm.
The car originally had red interior. I am changing the majority to black (carpet and seats) but keeping some red accents. The door panel inserts will remain, and I wanted a matching red leather gear boot. I couldn't find one specific to the S2000, so I bought a matching colour geniune leather generic one (I think it was for a skyline) and went to work. Cutting it to fit the standard mounting tabs wasn't going to work, so I bent up an inner aluminium trim ring to mount it.
This is then glued to the inside of the boot to mount it, and press fit inside the console.
And from the top then looks like this. I've also wrapped the shifter surround piece in carbon film, and covered the centre armrest part in alcantara.
Another detail for the exterior is the craft square style mirrors. I know it's probably fine but I really don't like the weird base plates to mount them to cover the factory mounting holes. As I'm painting the car filling the factory mounting holes is no problem, so I looked for a clean solution to mounting them.
I ended up picking up a pair of carbon mirrors with the 'front corner of the door inside the A pillar' mounting plate. The right size hole drilled through the factory section of the door (rubber) and then a smaller M6 size hole through the inner metal and inner rubber for a mounting bolt did the job.
The bolt is an aluminium one cut to precise length, as it must secure the mirror and also lock the ball mechanism for the mirror adjustment.
A plate welded over the factory mounting holes and after paint it looks like this;
The mirrors are great to use in this position, low profile, and maximum weight saved over OEM.
