Sure. Start by changing all the fluids including brake and clutch hydraulic fluid, diff, and transmission. Next a good wash using a non-detergent car washing soap and then a couple of coats of your favorite wax. Finish up by cleaning all the glass and you've fixed it up. The go drive it and learn what the car can do before you attempt to "fix it up".

Solid advice from KGF. What exactly do you intend to "fix up"?

Raggtopp or 303 on the convertible top is always good to do. Keyhole covers from js2k.com. Modifry adapter if you have an aftermarket stereo. If you like the look, OEM front lip, side steaks and rear spoiler(lip or wing). Also, upgrade to the ap2 valve retainers if it hasn't been done yet(search for more on this). Check all 4 tires, make sure they match and are in good condition. If not, get a new set. Perhaps lubing of the seals with shinetsu(sp?) and greasing the shifter as well.
Of course this is all after kgf's advise and not in any particular order.

Most people here believe the S2000 is a great car as built. And if you use the search tab you'll see this gets asked monthly so you're not going to get very far. That said...

Start with the tires. It's not fancy but it is the part that touches the road and gives you all of your grip. It seems like very few non-enthusiast owners stick with the OEM equivalent tires so there's a very good chance that your car could use a 'fix' there. If your tires don't have a treadwear rating near 200(or under) you're loosing handling performance.

If you wanted a car to 'fix up' then head back to the Honda dealer and get yourself a civic. S2000's are 'fixed up' straight from the factory...by the same team that did the NSX.

Take the advice from others above, go easy on the gas in the turns and have fun

For little cosmetic bits and pieces http://www.handa-accessories.com/ and http://www.ricks2k.com/ and http://www.modifry.com/ are good bets.
