Akira's NSX at the Rock Store
Though I have long despised the look of nose covers, I could no longer stomach the idea of my car receiving rock chips during our NSX Club drives. Little did I expect that one of my favorite NSX photos would feature a bra!
Valerie got me this Speed Lingerie color matched nose mask for my birthday, a gift that not only proved functional but was also aesthetically pleasing. Under many light conditions, the color blends quite well with the paint. In fact, one of the NSX Prime Forum members completely missed the bra in a similar shot, asking if I had painted my chin spoiler!
Putting on the bra took more time than I expected and caused quite a bit of paranoia (I doubly waxed the front and even added a layer of high gloss sealant to guarantee no scratches). Fortunately, this nose mask does not clamp to any of the painted surfaces of the NSX. That said, scraping the chin spoiler when exiting a driveway is all it takes to cause one of the clamps to disengage (lower-right of the photograph). (June, 2002)
