Nice build! I don't know the hole spacing or the size difference between your Honda emblem and this one, but Backyard Special makes a reproduction metal badge that fits in place of the more modern "H" to fit the S2000. It's kinda pricy, but if you need a new one, it's an option

I actually have that piece too and I bought like 2000 yen?

yeah well its different than the one with pegs. I intend to stick the reproduction piece at the end of the tailgate, where its prone to rust if I drill a hole and collect rainwater.

Anyways, Guy's at JC racing gave up on my engine block, they couldn't find a suitable machine shop, so I sent it back to Yau Seng in Falim, Ipoh. These guys have a huge shop, I swear they repair trucks and boat engines! Let's hope for positive updates

Secretaudio SST is a hidden audio system that offers great flexibility for mounting in any type of vehicle. The main receiver/amplifier unit is usually hidden under the seat, or behind the dash. A 10ft cord from the Tuner/Amp plugs into a LCD display. The system can be operated from up to 40 feet away with the included RF (radio frequency remote.)

Included with the system is a flush mount bezel for console or dash mounting. The small dimensions of the flush mount system allow you to install the LCD display almost anywhere. The LCD also comes with a bracket mount for easy installation in the glove box, under the dash, in the ashtray, sun visor, console, or wherever you choose. Since its only 1" deep its especially handy for custom or streetrod applications where there may be wiring or ducting routed behind the panels you wish to utilize for mounting. When your installation is finished you'll be rewarded with a quality professionally installed look.
