Punoi's Valencia Orange S2000
Back in Novermber 2012, Punoi wanted to do a full makeover with his S2000; new paint, wheels, coilovers, and wire tuck. Having a talk with our friend Chris Morton, he decided to join in on the project. Then in mid December, the tear down began and there was no stopping. At the first location, the car was on jacks, wheels off, engine out, ripping pieces one by one. With Chris working on the body and Punoi doing the wire tuck and engine, there was not turning back. They had planned on finishing the car around March, but problems have occurred just like any other project cars. The car was relocated to another friend Justin Hardin's backyard where they had access to an air compressor and many hand tools. There Punoi and Chris had worked the next few months on it. Parts were breaking and being replaced. More money had to be saved and spent constantly on supplies. It was still winter so they worked outside in the freezing cold, day and night. Everyday that didn't rain, they would come straight to work from their 8-5 jobs along with weekends. Timing wasn't going so well because they wanted the car to be done for the first Import Alliance in 2013. But it was no where to be completed. Most of the time was spent on the fenders and quarter panels being customized to fit Punoi's new wheels. He had bought a set of Algernon Intellese in 18x9 -1 and 18x10 +2. Not your typical offset sizing for an S2000. A set of Nitto Neogens in 205/40 for the fronts and 225/40 for the rears were then mounted. With the new wheel setup being tested on the car, the fenders had to be pulled maybe 2 1/2 inches (possibly more) along with the quarter panels. Chris had done many things he had thought of from working at a body shop. Much bondo was applied to keep the parts looking straight and sharp again. In the mean time, Punoi is working on the engine bay figuring out where to relocate his wires, fuse box, etc and prepping the bay to be painted. In March, the bay was ready to be painted, but not in a booth. Punoi and Chris had rigged up their own booth in the backyard the car was sitting. With Chris being experience with painting, he sprayed the the bay its first taste of the color. The color Punoi had decided was Valencia Orange from a BMW. But that's not how he decided on the color. He first found it on instagram from a guy name Kraft on his Evo. Now that the bay is painted and out of the way, they got back to work. Chris is still tackling on the fenders and quarters while Punoi finished the tuck and installing all engine components. In April, the engine was back in with a couple idling problems but fixed shortly. For the next month, Chris continues with the fenders and finishes. On May 22, Punoi's S2000 took its for steps out of the backyard and on to the road on a rainy day looking very hagard with lots of bondo spots along with an AP2 front bumper and CR lip. To protect the bondo, they took the car to the closest car wash where they had the idea to something idiotic that they'd never have the chance to again, spray painting it green. At this point, we called it the John Deere stage. For the next 2 days, Punoi driven the S2000 around town, work, places he would go on a daily basis. Suddenly, a car backed into the passenger fender while he was at work. Since then, he was insured more money and spent it on a brand new set of fenders even though one was used. Chris asked his boss at the body shop to finish the car there and the boss agreed. So the car was back under construction in Illusions Body Shop in Bristol, TN for the rest of the summer. Punoi and Chris has worked their hardest to perfect the car. Came August 31, it was time for paint. Every part was taken off. The S2000 had doors off looking like a jeep wanting to go off roading. By the end of the day, all parts were painted by Chris and they were relieved from many months of hard work. The following week, everything was put back together and Punoi drove it home with its fresh paint and the biggest smile on his face. A month later, Punoi had installed a brand new set of D2 Racing coilovers to lower it and complete it all. These two have put so much work into this project. Shop may have done this in a month, but with just two guys with the help of a couple friends here and there, hand tools, worst working conditions, it's a big accomplishment for these guys.
