Life: Amusing Meeting

Happy Holidays and Happy New Years everyone. This past week we held a special meet for our friend Warren who came all the way from South Korea…. In addition to Warren’s arrival, we also had a secret santa swap.

Of course being car enthusiasts we all exchanged car related gifts….

Collin received an NSX-R GT poster, because he has a White NSX himself…. I received a small drone, sorry no pictures of it..

Amuse R1 S2000

It was the first time Warren got to drive his car with his Authentic Amuse Hood Painted. Warren lives in Korea and before he left he dropped his car off with the painter to get the hood painted. According to him, finding a painter that does a good job painting Dry Carbon is quite difficult, it looks like signature autobody did a good job…. Check out Warren’s Build here

This Authentic Amuse Bonnet Street version is insane, peep the quality. The hood is incredibly light I think it is even lighter than Chris Lum’s Mugen Dry CF hood. I find it interesting how the hood does not have a hole for the hood prop and the hood latch looks like an afterthought. I’m assuming the hoodlatch is like that because the race version is essentially the same top but minus the hood latch…Hopefully one day I can be baller enough to upgrade my FRP ASM hood to the CF version.

Of course to compliment his CF hood he also bought this Mugen Intake BRAND NEW! Don’t mind the dust, he just got back from his flight this day and drove it straight from the body shop.

The rear of his car got some love too with this -04 ASM rear bumper. I can’t imagine the money that was being spent, Amuse Bonnet, ASM rear Bumper, Mugen intake, and ASM 70mm SS all done within a month…..

His Brake setup is sweet too. Bronze CE28N + Stoptech Trophy Kit…..

I got a better picture of Chris Lum’s Famous Mugen S2k this time since his car was not in the dark….

We did a quick shot of the different S2K hoods. My car on the left with the ASM bonnet, Mugen Bonnet in the Center, and Amuse Bonnet on the right. Everything is authentic, no Mugen-style here….We’re just missing J’s racing, veilside, and a few more I can’t think of.

I’ll leave off here with a picture of the squad. It’s crazy how 2015 played out…. I got my s2k back, I decided to move my ass to California on my own dime, met some awesome like minded enthusiast, and even had a few different jobs….. I’m sure 2016 is going to be even better!
