    This build represents the definition of a thorough refresh.

    I'm enjoying the build direction, looking forward to further updates.

    Been following this and I am in awe - the first cut (strip?) must have been hard! Can't wait to see the end result, this is how you do OEM+ properly

    Thanks guys!

    'Refresh' is definitely the aim - trying to find as many things that need sorting out along the way rather than having to dismantle and fix anything after it's back together. Ie. Window regulators / climate control box etc. It may take longer initially but that additional time spent should pay off in not having to pull anything apart again later.

    Paint stripper is stinky stuff indeed. I'll be glad when the last of it is stripped...

    It definitely felt a bit scary to scuff up the first panel with P36 sandpaper for the paint stripper to get a bite in. It was outweighed by the strong desire to fix its paint properly though. There is no turning back now!

    I'm enjoying the learning process as I dismantle this car too. As an example, the drivers door took me quite some time to dismantle as I was concerned about damaging the sill moulding and couldn't easily get the exterior door handle rod to detach inside the door. When I did the passenger door it took less than half the time and was so much less painful.

    True, though many parts are 'typical' Honda price, ie. expensive but not stupid. Some NSX-specific parts prices are scary though.

    Out of interest, which parts did you price to get scared off?

    Interior and exterior bits were very expensive. left side of a nsx taillights was 600Aus not including shipping ... And parts even on the heavenly Yahoo auction Japan was scarce that was the other issue. It was way too much a me to handle and I thought my S2000 parts was fairly expensive to replace. I never thought of checking parts with Acura in the states though

    Yeah true. Most OEM tail lights are almost that expensive though.

    Used parts are hard to come by in Aus too. Panels are expensive. A new door would cost around $3.5k list here for example.

    Toda Cam package incl gears etc around $6k for parts!
