Cool New 03 s2000 owner!

Finally got my hands on one! A 2003 s2000 for 9,000$ with 79k miles. The problems are it has hail damage (We had hail damage where I live, and it effected all cars that weren't covered), TCT problem (which will get fixed today by sand blasting), bald tires (They were so worn, you can see the metal threads through the rubber, I'm surprised I made it home lol), and somebody didn't screw a screw on the back bumper on all the way so it flapped in the wind, that was a simple fix. Also it had the wrong amps for the fuse for the radio/cig lighter, it had a 7 amps, and I replaced it with a 10 amps, now it works fine, that was a simple and cost free. The only thing I'm putting money into is new rear tires, and fixing the hail damage for 1,100$.
She'll be on the road the end of the week! Also the calipers will be painted red, and the rims black.

I had a 5th gen Honda prelude I upgraded from this. I'm going to miss my lude ):. I had her for 3 years.

Here are some pictures. Sorry for the crappy android pictures. Yes, thats a 1932 ford pick up in the background. :P



Engine bay.




My prelude <3 I'll miss her!

Ha, yes I did. I wasn't even looking for it. I was trying to get to the cig lighter to tighten it up and found it.
