Unboxing and Install: OEM Black Optional H Emblems

These are a subtle upgrade that the untrained eye wouldnt notice. But I like them much better than the standard emblems. These were an OEM option in 00-01, and will actually be a little easier to wash/detail. I ordered them from Ballade Sports. Front and Rear. Installation is very easy on these emblems. Just use a hairdryer or heat gun to heat them a tad, … Continue reading Unboxing and Install: OEM Black Optional H Emblems

I finally bit the bullet and decided to have the softtop replaced. I ordered the top on Autotopsdirect.com, per the recommendation of a local installer.

The included instructions also left much to be desired. … Continue reading SBG Setrab Oil Cooler Install

But you MUST use ramps, or … Continue reading Sakebomb FP Spec Swaybar Installations

Painting small chips on FSB

I wanted to make sure to re-coat the affected area prior to installation, to avoid future rusting. I found a tractor equipment enamel paint at the local Blain’s Farm and Fleet, that appeared to be a close match for the yellow paint of … Continue reading Painting small chips on FSB

S2000 Sakebomb FPSpec Coilover Install

Installing coilovers on the car is probably one of the most straight forward, low time commitment, effective upgrades that you can do. I love installing coilovers. Its literally 5 or 6 bolts, remove and replace. It completely transforms the car in a way that not many upgrades can. For the fronts, i started by jacking up the car and removing the wheel. I loosened the … Continue reading S2000 Sakebomb FPSpec Coilover Install
