Hello Prime,

Finally had the time to make a thread for my 1991 NSX.. After many, many years of drooling over NSXs and with a little persuading from @MexiRicer , I finally pulled the trigger on my dream car. I bought the car October of 2022, from a guy who used it as a daily driver. I stopped the guy to chat about the car and jokingly offered to buy it. I gave him my number expecting to never hear from him since he said he wouldn't sell it. However, after several months, he contacted me stating he was going to sell the car and asked if I was still interested. After going back and forth on whether I should buy it or not, we met and to my surprise, we settled on a price.

The car has it's blemishes, but it's nothing I can't fix or replace.. Like many here, I can't leave my cars stock. This restoration/build is going to be slow, but this thread is intended to document the vehicle's modifications, services, and updates. Hope you guys enjoy... 🍻

Nice thread...ya know the battle star galactica oem exhaust tips are growing on me ,,,what stays the same is new again
 
Hell yeah good stuff Braulio!!! From So Cal Civic forum to NSXprime.... I think you and @junior40er are the only other guys that made their way here from SCC lol... Hey now that I'm seeing your tire specs, the fronts should be 215/40/17... I think the taller tire had caused the previous owner to buckle the fenders. The front wheel specs are very mild to have been a factor. Anyways, cant wait to see your build updates bro :D
 
What's in the white Spoon box?
I am guessing it's the Spoon rearview mirror...
Correct. A spoon rearview mirror.

- Pride V2
- 16/17 TE37's
- Fixed 3rd brake light issue (discovered harness was cut)
- Changed from a worn Mugen steering wheel to a Spoon Gen3
- Cleaned the interior
- Removed the spare and cleaned the bay a bit
- Started to clay bar the paint, which was in rough shape
- Oil and air filter change
- Passenger door tumbler was damaged (Per the prior owner. He stated they attempted to break into the veh, but failed)
- Switched over from the CF NSX R style spoiler to the OEM spoiler
- Adjusted coils and aligned the car
- LED headlight bulbs
- Removed from badge to detail and then replace with an NSX R H badge

To be continued...
