Honda S2000 Build Embraces the Art of Perpetual Transformation
Good things take time, and watching this S2000 come together is a real pleasure.
If you're addicted to following build threads here at S2Ki, you aren't alone. We find ourselves perusing these magical transformations on a daily basis. But why do we love them so much? Well, at least in the case of Spoon Fed, it's because there's nothing better than watching a good thing come together.
"I wanted to start off by saying how much I love these build threads," Spoon Fed admitted. "I love watching the transformation take place. I want to contribute." So he did, by sharing his own AP1 build right here.
This particular car is actually Spoon Fed's second S2000. Years ago, he built what he thought was the perfect example, only to foolishly (and regrettably) sell it. But after a few years and a lot of searching, he found his next project in this super clean NFR AP1.
Down to Business
With such a great base to start with, the new car didn't require a whole lot of work, outside of paint correction and general maintenance. And then Spoon Fed was able to get down to business with a host of mods, beginning with a Spoon air duct and followed by some killer bronze Ray's wheels.
Spoon also provided a host of suspension mods, including subframe rigid collars, a bump steer kit, and axle spacers. But when it came time to choose some coilovers, Spoon Fed went with Ohlins.
Continuing the Spoon theme, Spoon Fed was able to pick up a set of calipers, an item that he had been obsessing over for many years.
Gimme No Lip
To give this S2000 a little more visual "oomph," Spoon Fed sourced a BNIB OEM lip for the front. Unfortunately, it was painted in Silverstone, but he sent it out for a color change.
The rest of the Spoon kit looks as impressive as it likely performs, and Spoon Fed was impressed by the inherent craftsmanship. For obvious reasons.
With the front lip painted and installed, this S2000 was looking pretty killer. But Spoon Fed wasn't finished yet, and soon picked up a hardtop in, of all places, his local classifieds.
Proving a Point
At this point, this AP1 is doing a great job at proving why we love build threads so much. But it isn't finished just yet. So be sure and head over here to stay tuned for future updates!
