Icon2 85 lude project car, Got any ideas?

Hey guys, I just got a 1985 prelude and it needs a new head on it, Has anyone got any ideas to making repairs at a good cost. After looking over it i a have become very interested in it and plan to make it my new project after it starts running good.

It will be getting paint if you have any ideas on color I would like to hear them, I am leaning towards yellow and a contrast of black, including tinted windows and custom refinished rims done at my wheel refinishing shop http://www.thingsthatgo.ca/shinez
Finished with black and polished lips similar to these ones that we did a little bit ago










Of course other things will be done like exhaust, suspension…… if anyone has any ideas let me know

Personally i would do what the car says to do! lol! it is whatever you want to do it bro, Personally in my opinion i would keep it red or a basic color not yellow, That to me spells RICE, As for those Honda rims I would paint them, then sell them on ebay or something and turn a profit, And let me know if you find a suspension for the 2nd gen, i have tried like hell!

suspension, tires/wheels.

If you want the best go with the hotbits suspension. if you wanna be ghetto go with some integra/civic coilovers. The coilovers require some extra work like drillin out holes and such but def cheaper.

15"s are the best size you can get for a 2g, not too big to look ridiculous and look great.

PAECO is your best bet for performance parts, no one does anything for our cars. uh i forgot who does cams, PAECO probably does. Another nice upgrade is the ignition set-up, upgrade that coil!
