1991 Acura NSX: The Fix
July 17, 2012
While this certainly won't go down as one of the more heroic fixes, thanks to Science of Speed, Mark and I were able to replace our NSX's busted door thing. The part came promptly and was well packed. As you can tell from the above photo, I'm not an elegant opener of cardboard boxes.
As Mark had already replaced the one on the passenger side, I let him take the lead. After all, my beer wasn't going to drink itself.
There's the offending broken thing.
But as many backyard fixes go, there was blood.
Mark managed to slice into his finger like he would a finely marbled chunk of meat. He then bled a bit and then for a bit more before turning the remaining work over to me. By contrast, I managed to reattach the finicky aluminum screws, hookup the electric door lock and slot the handle back in the door to complete the job. But sadly, not without stepping on a fig that had fallen into his yard. I know. My shoe's doing better, thanks, and so is Mark's finger.
Anyone want to take bets on what's going to break next? My money's on nothing.
