This is what i got so far

though i'd stop by and share a little of my prelude history..

bought it 2 years ago...it was in bad shape but little by little i've been working on it and its getting only better everyday, i love this car cauz i've learn so much working on it that is just fullfilling.
on the other hand, i want this car to be as reliable as it can be, so i figured no crazy mods on the engine, i just went whit the basic stuff, in some cases i've messed up but that's what is all about, this forum has really been a great tool to acomplish what i have so far, so thanks everyone for all the info provided.

here is the list from what i remember..

stage 1 clutch and flywheel from napa..
whole suspention (tie rods, shocks, ball joints, etc)
timing belt (no pics of this) paid someone to do it lol
tires (17 inch falkens)
brakes
full exshaust from ebay (when i bought it, was broken from the catback )
pionner nav

i know ive been cheap whit some parts, but honestly thats all i could afford at that time, i really wanted to kept moving whit the proyect, so thats why i bought them. in the future im looking to upgrade them but for now theyre gonna have to stay where they are.

i know that's not the full list of upgrades, but i guess u could see what i'm missing on the pics, i'm open to any suggestions so just tell me what u think just please be respectfull thanks...

Re: This is what i got so far

Literally the only suggestion I have is to paint the little clip that holds the shift knob to the shift boot, just cuz it doesn't look like it's chrome anymore. Tell me that's not a compliment :P

I love how clean you've made it.
