1991 Acura NSX: Forced Chivalry
November 21, 2011
Michael Jordan and I met up with some of our colleagues for lunch today, and discovered another item that needs repair in our beloved NSX.
I opened the passenger door for Mr. Jordan from the driver's seat and the handle did not return to its customary position. Nope, it was just left hanging as you see it in the picture above. Once we parked at our neighborhood taco stand, this door handle was indeed non-operational. That sent me into action as a two-seat limousine driver; sprinting to the other side of the car to open the door for him from the outside.
I normally volunteer to make repairs like these myself, but my past experiences with disassembling door panels inevitably result in a handful of fastener left over and a new group of door rattles. This one is best left to the professionals, I think.
