Hello again, it's been a while since I've updated.
I guess we can start with the boring stuff.
Following the track day, I listed almost all of my spare parts for sale. I sold the AP1 radio door because a clip was broken and I lost interest (buyer was informed before purchasing), sold the black AP2V2 seats, tan carpet, tan leather console, tan floor mats, and OEM hardtop among other things. I was sad to see the top go, but it was sold for $4,000 and the top was just not worth that much money to me. I actually bought a daily with that money haha.
To celebrate almost $7,000 in parts sales, I bought a few things for the S2000. I decided on trying out the Acura TL-S Brembo big brake kit. A friend of mine was selling the kit he had already put together and it was cheap so I said why not.
After contemplating things with this kit, I decided it wasn't for me and I sold it after owning it for two whole weeks. It never even made it outside the house.
Another friend of mine was selling an OEM AP1 trunk spoiler with original
GPW paint, so I picked that up to replace my repainted spoiler.

I ordered from Swift Spec R springs to lower my car a bit. I'm not that crazy about not having adjustable coilovers like I had on my AP1 (KWV3), but they're okay for $300.
Immediately after installing springs and aligning:
Comparison to a stock height S2000:
Next I was trying to embrace my inner ricer and plastidip my side emblems. There was no way that the dip was going to look good no matter how many coats I sprayed or how many times I peeled it off and tried again. I gave up with trying to get it perfect. The stupid plastidip was under the emblem and I couldn't remove it all completely, so I just took the side emblems off and buffed the area clean.
S2000 vendor hooked it up for me. I made quite a large order with Ryan at Moddicition for some new wheels, big brakes, and lug nuts. As always, I am extremely pleased with how everything went. The wheels I wanted were not in stock, and Enkei also didn't have them in stock, and he took care of it. They had to clear a huge big brake kit, stock fenders (no roll), and same size/larger tires had to fit with no stretch or extra camber. It was between the Enkei PF01 and TSW Nurburgring.

So much room for activities!
Hmm... Much better.
I also painted the rear calipers after removing them to match the Stoptech ST-40 328mm BBK in the front.
Now that I have a daily again, I can let the S2000 relax during crappy weather days and runs to the store. Both cars are filthy here and I literally just bought the Camry less than 12 hours ago at the time of the photo.
I need a solid day to detail both cars in and out. I am considering renting a storage unit to keep the Honda garaged in, but not sure yet. Instead of storing the AP2V1 wheels, I think I'm going to put them on the Camry!
