Bradley Lafayette’s RHD J’s Racing S2000!

We love our Hondas here at Mayday Garage, and it’s no secret that we do in fact love most all RWD cars, so when we first heard of Brad’s all carbon fiber widebody J’s Racing RHD S2000, we knew we would have to see it in person. It was brought to our attention that Bradley wanted to have a set of the now infamous Car Shop GLOW LED S2K tail lights some months ago when we first introduced them to the world, but being a handmade, bespoke Japanese part, we couldn’t get a set of the tails in his hands in time for Import Alliance but last month, we had the pleasure of meeting up with Brad, a friend of Danny Barber, from good ol’ Alabama during our WekFest Pre Meet. We had him up front and center, and his eyegasmic delight of carbon fiber tickled everyone from the insides at Moon Tower Inn. When we finally got a chance to see the car without a million people crowded around it during the actual WekFest TX show, we noticed it really did look weird with the OEM AP2 tails adorning the rear of the very very wild S2000. It was missing something. Something we all knew would complete the exterior of this wild beast, and that something was CSG’s LED tails.

Although we couldn’t get the tails on in time for WFTX, this past weekend, Brad had teamed up with a very talented Ryan Lopez of RL Photography fame, and Ryan was able to take some breathtaking photos to show off Brad’s new derriere. As Ryan himself states, the lights “completely changed the look of the car; they set it off just right. I love the AP2 tails, but the CSG tails just fits the car better”. And we agree.

As we have said time and time again, the lights are a finishing piece. It is “that last touch” that a complete car build needs, and as the case with both Tom and Brad’s S2000’s, it’s the touch that separates them as some of the best from the USA.
Huge thanks to RL Photography, check out his Facebook page and Flickr page!

Once a Ricer, Always a Ricer.

Say hi to JohnP. He runs the Rice Box Food Truck and is the main boss here at Mayday Garage. While it’s true he runs around like a maniac spitting out things in Cantonese, broken vietnamese and the occasional ebonics, he also enjoys driving his NA1 NSX whenever possible. He recently bought a carbon diffuser and last weekend, finally got around to installing it. Let’s just say installing the diffuser was a snap, but taking apart the rear bumper? That’s time consuming.

He was flexing for the camera btw

But it looks so goooooood

It’s funny in that despite him owning an NSX, JohnP loves to drive aggressively and loves the old 90’s cars and never forgets his Integra/corolla ricer roots. Like the rest of the guys, he appreciates all cars and respects other car guys that work on their own cars.
