I'll be removing the 3mm as I'm hitting the fender liner on bumps and rubs on a full turn. Removing the front spacer will resolve this. Wheels clear brakes fine, I'm only using spacers for aesthetics.

Couple teaser shots for now, I'll do a shoot once I get the car officially on the road.










Omg thats just pure sex

Decided to do a shoot this evening now that my setup is complete for 2011. Notice the rear height is now even with the front.

Thanks! Btw, those volks you saw in Honda Tuning are old. I actually submitted that feature back in 2010. The current wheels are the Advans.

I was planning a shoot of my car this weekend for a blog. Rain came down pretty bad during the shoot so I was unable to get a full set done. Anyways, here are some of the "wasted" pics. Hopefully I'll get another crack at a shoot before it gets too cold.

And finally, here are some pics from the October Issue of Honda Tuning Magazine, 2011. Obviously these pics are older, from 2010. But the mags typically get their issues together months in advance. Get your copy today!

I actually get my car detailed annually by a local buddy who is a pro. I believe he used a pro quality polish, and then also topped it off with a Carnauba wax for the extra bling. For maintaining the car, I simply use Zaino car wash, and wash the car infrequently. Drying, I use a combo of a leaf blower and also microfiber towels applied very lightly to avoid any swirling.

Thanks for replying synth. I lived in the Southwest Suburbs of Chicago and I'm looking for a reputable detailer. Could you send me your detailers info via PM if he doesn't mind?

Wow, one of the cleanist NSX's I have seen. I got tired of reading all the posts after like the 3rd page so not sure if someone mentioned this or if you have plans to do this but ever consider a wide body kit, I have seen a few and they look amazing on the NSX.

^ never a widbody to this car. The color is too rare.. if I had an older NSX, I would definitely do a widebody.

Here's the last/latest shoot of my NSX I did for Canibeat. I'll be back next year with a new look. More pics @ www.canibeat.com

Car is so sick! I've got to own one of these one day. Started with Civics and Integras, now have a TL in the collection. Time to step up to the most exclusive Acura ever built. Much respect for that car man! Great job with details too!

Jeez. Just got through reading through this thread.

I already preferred the refreshed NSX front-end, but just looking at all of the pictures of yours, and I'm even in more love, especially with the tasteful mods you've done, pulling everything together perfectly.

Was skeptical about all of the orange on the interior, but with some of the changes you did (mostly the Recaro seats), you have a really well-balanced interior that matches the exotic looks of the exterior.

Here is the 2012 look... Just waiting for the owner to ship these after he removes the tires.



Just not sure yet if I should keep the silver finish for a more "classic" look, or powdercoat these to something a bit darker. I was considering a finish called hyper black. It's in between a silver and black chrome. Matter of fact, it looks fairly similar to my Advan RZDF's.

those are some thick tires he had on it before, what were they on? But they're gonna look awesome! I prefer gunmetal on the wheels on your orange car, but them them out on the polished silver first, cant wait to see the results!

The model 5's are the new ones (split 5 spokes) without tires. the ones you see with the "thick" tires are the Advan RS'. I agree those tires are THICK. They are some shitty general tires, which look pretty thick. For the model 5's, I'm considering Falken 452's which I hear are more narrow then other brands in the size I need (265/35/18). I have gone with darker wheels, but this time I think I'll try a classic silver look.
