1991 Acura NSX: Taking a Beating

February 21, 2012


As I was preparing to wash our long-term NSX this morning, I noticed that the front air dam is looking pretty ratty.

The black plastic bottom lip has separated from the silver body work right in the middle. I thought that maybe I could just pop it back into place, but when I took a look underneath, it appeared as though the clip and screw that was supposed to hold it in place have been pulled clean through the silver plastic.

I might try to put it on our Rotary Lift to fix it, but I have a feeling this might be a job for a body shop.

We'll definitely need a body shop for a few spots on the silver body work. Right under the driver-side air inlet there's a chunk of paint missing. My guess is that some road debris hit it on the highway. There's also another ding that's much less noticeable on the passenger side.
