My car, a 97 Spa Yellow Pearl/Onix NSX, came with a double din Pioneer stereo unit with navigation, a short antenna, tinted windows, a Valentine radar unit and 2002 wheels. .

I started my build with some parts taken from my first NSX (a 95 Red/Tan), including Bilstein shocks and clear front side markers.
