S2000 CR Club Racer Edition CR stands for "club racer," conjuring up the good old days when guys drove their sports cars to the track, raced them, and then, if the racing gods were smiling, drove them home again

Three (3) S2000? Yikes! Three cars and two drivers here and only one is a S2000. I doubt I could live with more than one.

I applaud your decision to restore the CR to OEM spec although it looks like the suspension has been diddled with and with those wheels maybe the fenders have been buggered as well. Please keep us up to date. On all three.

It's always better to ask forgiveness than permission. I've done similar, they get over it...eventually. lol

Thanks....and yes, Ronica has gotten over it ….a little. Once the red car comes back home, she may be bothered again seeing all three together.

Had a day to myself today, pulled the car out of the garage to just sit there and admire the car lowered like it is, with the wheels I swapped on. Figure if I start with 'only a few mods' that keep it subtle and 'OEM+', for me it could turn into another full blown project. Don't want to do that with this one. So, pulled off the CE28 Genesis wheels and put the RPF01s back on (which I'm not a fan of) until I can get new tires on the OEM CR wheels. Also swapped out the Tracy Sport high flow cat and the single exit exhaust for the OEM piece today.

I'll start tackling the restoration little by little with the final step getting it paint corrected, detailed, and ceramic coated. I'll document the resto in the Gallery Automotive Builds section shortly.

Nothing wrong with having more than one especially if you are an enthusiast like Luder94! Nice collection and I will be following your "restoration".

Suspension is currently OE arms with Energy Suspension bushings all around, Megan toe arms, Moton Clubsports, aftermarket sways, and a bunch of cuts to the trunk carpets to mount the coilover reservoirs....alongside of a rolling of all fenders, with the fronts pulled slightly. The bodyshop I use claim to fame is building custom bagger choppers, restoring old Porsches, restomodding Japanese classics (odd mix, but that's all they do). They are confident that they'll be able to 'un-pull' the front fenders back to straight and even think they can un-roll the inner fender lips with very minimal cutting or having to add new metal.

All the suspension work I'll tackle little by little swapping parts back to stock (of which I have on hand, luckily).

Right now, the hard part of having three... I don't have all three together. Red one is getting a suspension and subframe refresh. It's so easy to drop one off somewhere to get work done that didn't need doing because I have another one to look at and yet another to drive. But, once I do get all three together, I'll have other problems. Parking. I'll need to get a storage lift sooner than later, redo the garage door tracks, which will lead to a new jack-shaft opener and other 'mods' I wanted in/on the garage. Once parked, which one gets my attention for wash, which one do I drive, etc. I won't mind these problems though.

Will be cool to see a CR "restoration" in action, I don't know if we've had one before but a Delete especially is certainly deserving of it!
