new to preludes; heres my 5th gen

just picked up a 5th gen prelude on a steal after spinning a rod bearing in my rs.
now it is an automatic, but the jdm trans is on the way:thumbup:

picked it up from a junkyard which claimed it didnt run (had it running in a half hour) and paid 1000 for it.
original owner junked it after hitting a dear, which rolled on the hood and off the car leaving no fender damage whatsoever

200k
original owner (title had 200 miles on)
non smoker.
older female commuter

Sorry about the first pics, took them on my cell. they will get better









the next day after i sanded down the wheels and sprayed them black, came out pretty good, and also since i hadnt found a hood and front bumper yet i took the hood off and tried to bend it back into place somewhat.. better than nothing i assume.



now today i tinted the red part of the real tailights, not completely black but just a darker shade.

alottttt of hand sanding and some spray paint.
the wheels were in scratched up real bad at first.



a quarter of a can of nightshadee. came out prettyy good

Good looks. Some time and money into it and it'll be a real slick car as long as you don't beat the crap out of it.


And I believe this stuff belongs in Auto Showoff, or another section. Just sayin'.

Northeast area of what state?

Auto trans are notorious for a high failure rate..Although my 99 lude has 180k with original auto tranny.

I flush the transmission every 20-30k and try to keep the solenoids/filters clean.
