    Here are a few pics from the spring of 2017. Recently added is the Back Yard Special Spoiler.

    I picked up this Tommy Kaira shift knob finally made in Honda/Acura pitch. This was one of my fav shift knobs when I owned a Nissan 350z. I’m very excited about this, especially since the logo is not the standard red (which would have clashed with my interior).

    It’s been awhile since I’ve updated this blog,  but let me catch up with some new content. I picked up a used OEM HU and sent to Willman’s for an upgrade. In case you are not familiar with the company, they essentially change out the guts of your HU and replace it with a modern Clarion with blue tooth, USB, etc. etc…. While at the same time, making the HU look “Factory.”

    A few pics from 2015. I basically swapped back to my Advan RS wheels which I had in storage for a few years. Thanks to the Enemy Photos for these shots. Clikc on the pics for higher res/link back to the Enemy.

    This past weekend I made a concerted effort with a few friends to take a few snaps of my NSX. Thanks to Jose Torres for the rolling shot and also to Armando Lorenzana for assisting in the overhead shot. Click on the photo for a higher res image. 

    NSX 2014 Shoot

    I’ve wanted to do an overhead shot like this for some time now. Originally I was going to use this location for another car, but this idea was scrapped due to a marathon blocking this location a few weeks ago. Since I’m actually in the car driving, you could say I was the “producer” of this pic. I essentially gave Armando instructions on what I was looking for and setup the shutter speed/aperture prior to handing him the reins.

    This is a second-hand J’s Racing 3D GT Wing (Type 2) I picked up over the winter. It was a bit rough, but turned out great after a local guy refinished it for me. It was only after the purchase of the wing did I realize that J’s never made a wing for the NSX. The previous owner told me it’s actually an S2K wing with custom NSX mounts.

    A rear shot of the car with another angle of the wing. You’ll also notice that I switched out my Model 5’s to Advan RG3’s on Falken Rubber.

    Fall NSX Shoot

    For those interested in the specs- Advan RG III in 17×8 +38 and 18×10 +35. I have a 3mm spacer up front, so that makes my fronts +35 The finish is “hyper black.” It’s in between a silver and black chrome type look. Tires- Falken Azenis RT-615K 215/40 and 265/35.

    NSX 2014 Shoot

    Recently I’ve been loving shooting “wide open” using my 85mm 1.2 lens. It’s a great lens for automotive on a full frame camera.

    Side profile of the shot. I’m not sure if I’ll ever go back to an 18/19 look again. I love the balance of a 17/18 setup. Another thing I have to mention is that Advan wheels clear ANYTHING. Stoptechs are great, but unfortunately their caliper width limit your wheel selection. Not an issue though with Advan.

    There aren’t too many things on my “list” anymore for the nsx, so this mat purchase was a bit of a stretch for me. Karo has been making hand-made mats for over 30 years in Japan. SCW Performance was able to work with KARO to develop a LHD Specific (US-Model) NSX floor mat set. I think there are only a handful of these in the US (based on how expensive these are), but I’m pretty happy with the quality.

    Another new item for 2014 was this NSX-R cover by Science of Speed.
