Aw... its a 1993 s2000... isn't that obvious? ;P

I'm still on the fence about the vents... other stuff first and I'll revisit them.

Ugly, but if it runs like a bat out of hell who gives a crap. One guy I know painted his pink.

Ok... I should have all my coolant leaks fixed now.

Hopefully this week I can finally get around to hood/exhaust/COPs.

Man that makes me want a older NA so I could chop it up and not feel bad for it. Looks good, what's the plan for the dash?

I was going to run my own aluminum dash... but feeling super lazy... I have a black dash on the way. I'll gut that dash and run some AL plate where I need it for gauges and such. I also have a black carpet enroute to make it easier to hold down my silver heat resistant stuff.

Oh.. and i left part of the license plate because it cracks me up that the DMV gave me that randomly...

I really like the look of the front it looks mean as hell. The only thing I question is the placement of the mirrors haha.

Heh, they work... sorta. Was the cheap fix to my mirror problem. I think i'll pick up a wink or a convex longacre mirror for inside the car.

M2... I want on track too... I just can't find the time to get the car ready. We close on a house on the 28th... so I've been busy with all that crap. Once I have a garage... I should be able to crush the last few things.

Split, I'm in TN, but my parents are up in Northern IL. Please tell me I can come see this car sometime when i'm visiting IL! If I had the resources and time, that's more or less what I envisioned for my '92

Lol, promise =0P. They're up in McHenry county...I'm thinking about coming up there ~thanksgiving or so....we'll see.

Braineack, About the A/C hole that you mentioned back on page 2.....That kind of has me concerned. See, I removed my A/C and bracketry, oh, 3 months ago or so, and have been driving the hell out of the car since then....what precisely does that 'hole' go to?

The majority of the car was built in a few days of work. But with little time, its taking more than that to get it 100% on the road.

Cost... 1500 for car (w/hardtop )... then lots of used parts... few new parts and lots of labor/love. Beyond that... who knows... the goal was below 5k for the entire build, I'm fairly certain I'm well below that.

The bumper was just to get more flow, I had 0 cooling issues so far... but all I've done is drive it around town and on the highway. The entire cooling format of this car is preventative...

This update is just for you

I was paced for a mile or so at 12:30am coming home from doing the exhaust last night. He ran my plates I suspect, then went merrily on his way.

Mind you... this was after i hacked more from the rear bumper, added a center exit exhaust... and was rolling 1/4 mile behind a truck doing 60 in a inactive work zone.

How come when people cut their front bumper between the turn signals they never actually follow the lines of the bumper and it ends up looking funny?
