The road to Nisei…Tony’s neglected NSX…Part 3…

Oh man, things are starting to get pretty hectic around here. Big Mike’s build is coming down to the wire and the NSX is close to being finished. Today we’ll look at Tony’s stuff because Big Mike just has so much shit going on that I haven’t even been able to sort through all the pictures with me having features to write this past weekend….

As you can see the front bumper is now patched up. The carbon piece on the bottom stills needs to be repaired and painted. We kinda discussed plans to fill in the two outer vents and Tony went ahead and had them do just that. Just have a much sleeker appearance with the two vents filled and shaved…

Both fenders have been fixed and are back in one piece. Can’t wait to see it painted and back on the car…

The door panels had to come off because Tony and the shop are working on getting some custom mirrors on there. He had some tear drop carbon fiber ones but decided it wasn’t going to work because they were too small. He ditched those and plans on using some other ones he already had…

While Tony still had the NSX at home, he took the headliner and trim pieces out cuz he planned on replacing them. Doesn’t look like there’s gonna be enough time now so I think he’s probably just gonna clean it up and put it back in…

The car’s been sitting for over a year now so it definitely doesn’t start anymore. Tony drained the tank last night and fixed a small oil leak on the motor. Today he was gonna get some new gas in there, get a new battery, and try to get this thing running again. Once the car is moveable, it’s off to the bodyshop where the aero pieces will go back on. Then it’s gonna get colormatched, sanded, and the entire car buffed. Then baring any surprises…off to Nisei. Everyone has there fingers crossed at this point, shits getting serious!…More pics soon….

  1. Man talk about lagging. Seems like this happens quite alot around Nisei time. I think he strives on the pressure. It’s gotta make it to Nisei this year since it’s now or never.
