Default Keeping it simple - BB AP2 build

Current Look:


I've wanted an S2000 for about a decade now (hence my join date), but things never lined up and I kept adding more and more to my previous car to the point where I felt like I couldn't let go of it. It ended up being a car I didn't drive very often and I felt it was a waste of a second/toy car. Finally decided enough was enough this year. A friend was selling his 2009 S2000 around the same time I was starting to look and finally was able to fulfill this decade old dream of mine.

Some of you might recognize Dan's car:




Someone local picked up all his mods and I got the car pretty much stock, with the exception of a PLM header.
I don't intend to do too much to the S2. Trying to keep it relatively simple, take my time with it and just enjoy driving again.

My blank slate:

I did pick up a few things prior to buying an S2000, kinda forced myself to stick to the goal.
ARC exhaust
ARC intake
ARC rad plate
ARC spark plug cover

And I had a couple things I've collected over the years that I could use on the car.
ASM stubby antenna
Mugen oil cap
Mugen rad cap
Backyard Special titanium shift knob







Don't have any shots of the other parts but I'll update the thread periodically. Probably won't end up installing the exhaust and intake anytime soon, looking at getting a set of coilovers first and spacing the stock wheels out for this year. Trying to enjoy the car relatively stock for a year before doing much.

You'll change your mind after that year - I think we all do.
I thought I would keep the car stock with just OEM+ mods but that plan went out the window lol...

ENJOY and hope to see you at the monthly / cruises here in the GTA

One of the things that really bothered me with the car were the rusty calipers, so I freshened them up today

Man looked good with the regas. Brakes turned out great. Did you take the calipers off to paint?
