    Considered stripping all the panels and just having it cleared, I think the nsx would actually pull it off well...

    I guess bumpers would have to be matched thou :/

    Hehe, nahhh.... Although I do want to have a bare NSX alloy panel featured in my garage hanging from a wall or something. I think that would look cool.

    I don't think I'd do that to a Civic either, hehe.

    Thought I recognised those plates :p

    I've seen you around Tamworth, it's awesome there is someone else from there on JDMST!

    From what I've seen previous to this build thread this thing is mint! This attention to detail in this thread in a honour to you.

    Keen to see more of it around Tamworth and on JDMST. Subscribed (:

    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!
    A pair of ap2 taillights new for my s2000 was only $500. aftermarket parts are scarce too and expensive .
    Would love to own one day still though

    Oh cool! I was wondering if someone from around Tamworth might spot this thread and recognise the car. You should come to Cars & Coffee on Sunday at Bunnings if you aren't already. I'll be there in the ITR, come say hey!

    I'm looking forward to driving the car a fair bit once it's looking how it should. It shouldn't be a total garage queen, although I probably won't really want to leave it parked in the street all day just to drive it to work.

    Thanks for the compliments granny, hoping my thread can continue to entertain you!

    Genuine pair of new lights from Honda for S2k only $500? I remember one of the OEM tail lights for DC2R was $350 or so?

    Anyway yes, I know what you're getting at. There's lots of things available when you start looking though, and I feel as though the NSX aftermarket is growing. Especially FI systems. Some items are reasonably priced... other things, well... haha.
