Wow, it’s been almost a year since I last updated the blog but only added a few more things for this year. I ended up selling my 17/18 Advan Model 5′s and went for the larger 18/19 setup which I felt looks a bit better. The finish is a custom powdercoat which is in between gunmetal/chrome/silver.
With regards to wheel/tire sizing- I am at 18×8 +38 in front and I have a 3mm spacer. So with that said, front is +35 (Falken 253′s 215/35/18). In the rear, I am 19×10 +45, and using an additional 5mm spacer to bring me to +40. I can PROBABLY get a few more mm’s before rubbing. I might try to align my rears a bit and reduce camber. The problem is, I’m running 275/30/19 in rear which is the reason why I can’t go too aggressive in rear offsets.
Finally, you’ll notice some Downforce side splitters I added in Carbon Fiber. These were the last set they made for the 2002 side skirts, so I was pretty lucky to snag these. I’m not sure if they plan on making these again. Thanks to the Keith and Casper for these pics.
Thanks to Larry for taking some sweet pics of my NSX @ Autobahn Track in Joliet, IL. Click on each photo to get to my Flickr page, and a higher res image.
Haven’t updated the blog in awhile, but here are some 2012 updates.

I decided to go with the JP Aero front lip to retain a factory-like look, with a touch of aggressiveness.
Another look of the mirrors and new lip.

Attempted a photo shoot today- Unfortunately rain came down pretty bad and had to pack up quickly. Here are some shots I managed in the short time I had.
