Hello everyone.

This is my first post at the af forums and I'd like to present the WIP of my Honda S2000. This build was inspired by the car from jTuned magazine:

Here it goes from the beginning:

Most of the dents and holes were filled and sanded (multiple times), but as you can see there are still some:

Filled up the gaps on the diffusor:

And afcourse the wheels:
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee86/zeroGjTuned/DSC04889Medium.jpg

Currently I'm making the holes in the bumper for the exhaust tips:

http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee86/zeroGjTuned/DSC04906Medium.jpg
And also, bye bye chunky tires:
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee86/zeroGjTuned/DSC04908Medium.jpg
I've sanded quite some rubber off them :D
You can see the difference when compared to a similar wheel with the same tire size:
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee86/zeroGjTuned/DSC04914Medium.jpg
And how they'll look on the car.
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee86/zeroGjTuned/DSC04915Medium.jpg

I painted the body, and spent the last three hours polishing it :
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee86/zeroGjTuned/DSC04966Medium.jpg
Which is not actually visible from that picture. It's quite hard to show the shine on white. Maybe this two pictures show it a bit better:

http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee86/zeroGjTuned/DSC04969Medium.jpg
Also, almost finnished:
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee86/zeroGjTuned/DSC04972Medium.jpg
Didn't put too much effort in it since it's quite invisible on the rack.
I painted the glass parts:
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee86/zeroGjTuned/DSC04971Medium.jpg
And the wheels:
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee86/zeroGjTuned/DSC04974Medium.jpg
I used the color which is meant for dimming the automotive rear lights, since it's not completely black.

A small update but still was a lot of work. Today I painted the window trims.
And a shot with interior and the wheelz:

I made the panel lines wash today.

Wow thats incredible the kit looks factory, top notch! Very interesting approach to the intercooler nice.
Nice job finally on the side skirts, those looked like an especial pain in the a$$.
Next time you post a build if its a current WIP post as you are doin it it makes for better comments and suggestions to diff approaches. But Welcome aboard!
Cant wait to see more super clean builds.
