Just Picked up a MINT 86 Si.

well im new to the boards so i figured i would post up the reason im new to the prelude forums.

ive already joined up on another prelude board but the more sources i have for 2nd gen info the better.

anyways about the car. i just bought it about 2 weeks ago from a guy down in virginia just outside of DC and it has 65k original miles on it. the car is basically brand new i'll let the pics speak for themselves. some are from me and others are from the previous owner.











previous owners pics:













as for my plans w/ the car. right now. nothing unless i can track down a pair of oem fogs. but other than that i really dont want to do anything to it yet. later on down the line im thinking about lowering it and throwing some mugen nr10's on it and just leaving it like that. here is a quick photoshop of it w/ the nr10s on it:




lemme know what u guys think and maybe any ideas as to how to track down some rare/hard to find oem parts because im at a total loss.

Re: Just Picked up a MINT 86 Si.

wow, amazing condition, even puts mine to shame, i have a uk model so its interesting to see the differences, mine has the twin cam 16 valve engine but no a/c or cruise control, also my wheels are a different style and 14 inch, the wheels you have on yours were on the 1.8 ex version in the uk, my eyes popped out when i saw the cruise control buttons on your steering wheel and the graphic equalizer under the tape deck! amazing, still the best looking prelude for me as far as im concerned, your so lucky over there u dont have the wet weather we have over here and it shows in the condition of you cars!

Re: Just Picked up a MINT 86 Si.

I just bought an 86 prelude...not near the condition yours is in, but overall not bad..Need to replace the CV axle and not sure if I should do this myself or not. Yours is is great shape! how much was it? Would give me a good idea of how much I need to put in mine.
No radio or speakers. getting that fixed as well...once it warms up a little have the radio wired and speaker holes are already wired as well.

Re: Just Picked up a MINT 86 Si.

Wow she is gorgeous! I wish the previous owner of my 3rd gen took care of it like yours did. It's going to take a lot of time to get mine looking like that! If I were you I wouldn't touch it as far as mods and such (I doubt you would). I would hate to see a beautiful piece of artwork like that get tainted by bolt-ons or anything like that. But I bet you know what you're doing . I don't really care for the look of those wheels you want to get, but that's only my opinion. Anyways awesome find and keep her clean!

Another vote for leaving it as is...it's a sharp car and hard to improve on.
