Arrow RTP Area Mechanic- work done by an S2000 OWNER!

Wanted to let those in the area know that they have another option for getting your S2000 worked on by someone who knows, cares about, loves our cars!

I am an original '00 S2K owner(Nov. 18, 1999) and am knowledgeable/ capable for doing work on your car. Also having parted out an entire S2000 so still have some parts for sale too. Plus it's nice having backup bolts/screws/buttons. I am not associated with a shop but this allows me to pass along that overhead savings onto you. Most of all your car is all I care about that day!
Pricing will be significantly less than the dealer and lower than any shop.
- I am specialized to ONLY OUR CARS! No cut corners or "good enough"........it's done right, end of story.


Capabilities:
  • AP2 Retainer Swap, spark plug re-torque & custom valve adjustment.
  • Valve Adjustment

    • Alternate- NGK 7746 IFR7G-11KS Laser Iridium Plug SKU: #IFR7G-11KS ITEM: #NGK7746

  • bushings & boots(diff, sway bar, etc) as well as motor mount inspection
  • camwheel bolt inspection (it can leak)
  • VTEC solenoid inspection(it can leak too)
  • Replace/Upgrade Boots n Bushings
  • I have other capabilities but as we all do I too have my limitations
    • No soft top replacements(other S2K people are way better/faster than I)
    • No engine swaps(engine hoist & stand is in CT currently)
Other services are possible related to wash/wax/detail and slight color correction.

Spoiler
Saturday 6/2/18
- Scheduled work for a full fluids change out(EVERYTHING) and swapping spark plugs. Plus a general look over at things while I make my way around the car.

If anyone else is interested in stopping by to enjoy the day(AM Thunderstorms 50% chance of rain), see what's getting done, work on your own car, or just BS and hang out!

Interested in coming post here or send me PM and I will send you my address.

HKStallion - Got a full checkup. She is in very good health with an '03 with around only 55K on her! Not much recent use due to kids but well I know exactly how that goes. This black beauty got some TLC with new fluids......EVERYTHING including blinker fluid! Ok wondering if anyone is actually reading this. You name it, it was flushed/swapped. Got word back that the car drives great and the clutch feels nice.(fair bit of tweaking done there)

Who's next? Do we need another "Tech Day"?

I cannot say enough good things about this.
Pinky is the S2000 whisperer.
It is true, i have neglected my car and not given her the love she deserves.
But i am happy and relieved to know that everything is in good/great working order.
He is VERY thorough. He found all of my cars little secrets, good and bad.

If anyone needs some work done, or is just interested in a second set of eyes on their 10+ year old car, i think you would be foolish not to use Pinky,
and the bonus is that you get hang out with a fellow S2000 owner.

Thanks again for all the work as well as the extras that were above and beyond.

if i used emojis, i would post an obnoxious amount of thumbs ups.

Thanks Dave. I am humbled.

After almost 20 years of tinkering and reading these forums I have picked up on more than a couple things. My aversion to dealerships working on my car is probably a major contributor to this.(multiple poor experiences) They just don't have the knowledge/experience, pride in their work or appreciation of how unique and special your baby really is!(and NOT just special to you)

I wrapped up a bunch of projects and am making room in my garage for your S2000. Shed is getting stocked with things that were just taking up space and will be setting up my air compressor with a total of 23 gallons of capacity.

No job is too small for me to get done and if you want to help or do other things while I work you are welcome to.

Edited some capability offerings.

I will add that I can travel to your house to complete my work but just please understand that there will be a slight additional cost as I must pack all I need and travel to you. Though, it is much more convenient for you! How often does your mechanic make house calls?

Wow, super sad that I just saw this thread on here! Been wanting to do the AP2 retainer swap but never did it because I didnt want the dealer charges and now my S2000 is shipped to Germany. I would've easily come to you!

Bummer! I would have happily done that for you. Well if the car comes back to the states without an upgrade and I am still doing this stuff.......which is very likely. Hit me up!

I have openings to get work done. Just shoot me a PM people.
