My customer bought a leftover S2000 in BB with no miles (amazing deal). However the paint was another issue. Here is where we came in.

We put about 14 hours into the paint over 2 days and below are the results.
Other than the paint the car was mint!

Outstanding! Why Honda stopped making the S2000 is beyond me and many others. It's a sexy car, with one of the best shifters ever put on the market.
