Default Josh's s2k build thread- pic heavy !!

Hi all ,

just thought id start a build thread on my little s2000 . Don't expect anything crazy or something that's not been done before !

A little bit about about me and my family . I'm 35 and been happily with my wife since we were 16!! ( married 12 years ) we have Theo who is now 5 and Sonny who is 8 months . ...... so as you can imagine I'm pretty much tired most of the time !! I'm a tree surgeon and my wife is a garden designer.

I do regret selling the 350z as I had put a lot of love and money into it !

But i got fed up with the tinkering it needed all the time due to the vast mods!

..........

anyway bought this little s2k around 3 months ago .

25k on it , full Honda service history , 4 owners . Wasn't the colour I was after but soon realised that finding a good s2000 was hard !! So was really happy to find this one !

Next was strip back the arches and see if there was any rust to deal with !! Luckily there was very little, so just treated it all with bilt hammer , hammerite then Underseal .
