    Cambo's '91 Honda NSX project

    Hey guys,

    Thought I'd start up a thread over here about my car, since I'm a lurker on JDMST and don't really post much.

    Back at Easter time I bought this car from my Uncle who had been the owner for some 20 years. I drove the car in 1999 (when I was 17) for the first time when he visited my family and I'd dreamed of NSX ownership ever since then.

    Initially I wanted to just tidy up the car and drive it but unfortunately my OCD got the better of me. I wasn't happy with the respray job that had been done a few years ago, so I decided to do my version of an NSX Refresh program. So currently it is pulled apart and most of the panels have been totally stripped of their paint (pics will come).

    Skipping forward a few months, the dismantling for repaint begins...





    The first application of paint stripper - I knew this was a point of no return!





    Rear guards come off!



    As do the front...





    More paint coming off...





    Before & afters on the side intake air duct area

    very nice
    i want to own a nsx too but $$$
    if your partner EVER say you take turn/intersection/roundabout/corners etc too fast say this...
    the faster you go around corners, the less petrol you waste to accelerate back to the speed limit

    Most be easy to do a widebody conversion because the rear guards come off like that.
