Got another Spa Ap1... First mods? REMOVE Eyelids and grille inserts lol

Howdy all! So I finally got another s2k and it happened to be the same color too (spa) lol with 74k in great condition. It was stock with the exception of eyelids and grille inserts BOTH of which had to go with a quickness.

So here's the pass hl pre:


Eyelid removed:


I went ahead and polished the hl, used 600 and 1000 grit sandpaper, 3M rubbing compound and sealant


Can't forget the eyelid removal kit lol!


Back to stock


Finished product of drivers side hl


Getting ready for ap2 front and lip... maybe ap2 headlights but def ap2 rear tails

naw not really. Still had my DC5 at the time and had the s2k for a few months. Then my good buddy ended up selling his 08 Evo X with stupid low miles, like less than 8k and he gave me a really good deal=Sold my DC5 and AP1 and got the Evo X and a EK Civic as a daily. Loved the X, but didn't drive it so I sold it too and got a TSX (first auto ever owned). Sold that, got a DB8 w/ JDM front (my ongoing project car) and finally found another s2k from ANOTHER pregnant couple who just wanted to get rid of the car since they had just bought another vehicle lol. Not to mention, went to the ECHM a few weeks back and I got bit by the AP love alllll over again. Really wanted a '06 Rio, GPW, or LBP but I've always loved the spa. So yeahhh. Oh and my wife said I have to keep this one for at least two years lol.

Nice pickup!

I just traded in my '06 Type-S last week for an '06 GPW S2000.

I really enjoy driving the new whip.
