Hey guys!

Kinda new to the forums. My first car was a 01 Prelude now I decided
to come back to it after buying and selling about 10 cars. Bought this car in TX it needs a good amount of work. The guy who had it before me had no respect for the car. She deserves to be fixed.

Black 98 Honda Prelude SH

Needs two fenders (fiberglass bs cracked all over)
Poor thing has been painted like 3 times
Needs new clutch/tranny work
Needs a alt (AEM pulley bs)
Needs the trunk fixed or replaced
Needs left front shock (yay for new suspension right away)
Feels like it needs new motor mounts
Horrible carbon fiber like sticker all over the inside.
Engine bay makes me cry
lol @rims

Here are the pics.

Yea it does need some work but trust me, i have seen far worse. Good job on that other one, I'm not a big fan of the bumper and hood, but to each his own. Good luck.

Re: New User / New Project

Just did a alternator delete and 100A battery fuse delete.
Honda emblem on trunk delete (ebay pos)

I never will understand why ppl buy the cheapo stickers.

now for some reason the damn thing does not have electrical power at all!

j/k

Gotta get all that good stuff replaced.
If someone has Qs about how to remove the alternator in detail I can take pics and do a detailed DYI.

Pics of more work done today.
