Brand new here with my first Prelude and first Honda.

Hey guys. New owner from Decatur, Ga. Picking up a 1984 Prelude base model. 1.8L Carbed. Gotta swap the carbs for it to run, but it's good otherwise. 151k miles and a 5-speed. Not bad for $220 in parts.(Cost of the car so far... Pull-A-Part FTW)

The first 2 pics are from last weekend and the next few are from yesterday afternoon after pull-a-part parts swapping. I plan on painting the hood, fenders, headlight doors, roof, and trunk black and leaving the rest red. The wheels are from a 1990 Mazda Miata and modified to fit the Honda hubs.

It is from parts stores. They hafta order everything special for it. I got lucky and found a basically complete 86 at Pull-A-Part in Augusta. Pretty much.. Raped that car lol

I certainly will. As it sits now, my friend who is giving me the car got it running on 1 of the 2 carbs. The 2nd one won't fire off, and the car won't idle. We got another set of carbs from pull-a-part that he's going to swap onto the car tonight. Hopefully that'll get it going. I'll be going back down to the car next weekend if it's not running this week.

Just an update, just cause :p My friend who owns the car right now started to swap the carbs last week and will finish up this week. That should get it running

Re: Brand new here with my first Prelude and first Honda.

It finally runs ^.-.^ Got the car running Wednesday night. It idles at 2000 rpm.. But it runs and doesn't smoke. I think the idle is from sitting for 9 years.. Has a bad alternator which I am replacing Sunday when I go to pick up the car. I'm excited :3

Also.. Vaccuum line hell.. OMG..

Re: Brand new here with my first Prelude and first Honda.

Update ^^ Got the car home tonight. Runs like a top ^^ Cruised the 130 or so miles back home at 65 - 70 with no issues at all. It idles a little high now 1100 rpm, gotta figure out how to drop it down some, but runs smooth. Needs a tune-up bad though. It has hardly any punch at all.

Got the headlights working so they now close and the front end painted black. Gotta re-attach the trim and put my Si seats in it and I'll be mostly good to go :-p

There is an 87 in pull a part in Augusta, Ga. Next time I am out there (will have to be after the 12th) I can see if it is still there. If it is I'll pull it out of the car for ya'.
