hey what’s going on everyone.. welcome to my 2020 sonic grey type r build thread.. I haven’t built a Honda in a while... the last build I did was about 5 years ago. I had built a 2004 Honda S2000. I loved that car but ended up selling it to put a down payment on a house lol (most grown up thing I’ve ever done) here’s some pics of my old s2000

Anyway... flash forward 5 years and I have the urge to build another Honda. I really wanted a sonic grey CTR so 2 months ago I went to a local dealer and put a deposit down on a 2020 SG CTR. Well so finally it came in this morning. I took delivery of the car dirty and dusty with all the plastics still on it.. looking the way it did when it first rolled off the truck. I told my sale guy that I wanted to car like that so I could probably wash and detail it. And as requested the car was as fresh as it could get

I got the car home and I did one of the best and cheapest mods you can do for a civic type r... I took off the red pinstripe :) I know to do is blasphemy to some but in my opinion it looks better with out it

So over the Memorial Day weekend I went to Scottsdale to go look at some real-estate properties over there. So while I was over there I decided I’d stop by my good friend Matt who owns ICB Motorsports and buy some new wheels and exhaust for my CTR... I didn’t have the CTR yet at the time but that I figured that I’d just stock pile parts till the car came in

I also heard that if you got the Mugen door handle protectors and the Honda vtec turbo decal that it would give my car a extra 100hp haha so I got some ;)

I had ordered some tires for my new wheels about 2 days before I left to Arizona so when I came back to California the tires were already at my house. I went with a 265/35 hankook RS4 tire

I've always loved the ATS Garage builds from back in the day. Attention to detail is on point.

I look forward to seeing the progression on your new FK8. :D

Thanks bro. Yeah but your 100% right. I look back on some of the builds from past ATS projects and it’s nuts how much detail and work goes into those builds. :)

I totally see why you picked this color based on your past build. It was meant to be man.
