My new Prelude!

and new to the forum. Bought a 1998 Honda prelude back in August. In pretty good condition. 5 speed. 126000 miles. Runs good! Haven't had a problem yet! Just wanted to say hello to the forum

Re: My new Prelude!

Just bolt-on's. I'm a broke college student. So the next couple of things are going to be CAI, coilover sleeve kit, and maybe retrofit. With Christmas on its way, I doubt I'll have the money to do these anytime soon.


This is what I had before the prelude.. 1995 Mustang GT. probably would still have it if it wasn't an auto.

Re: My new Prelude!

Yea I believe it is the evo2. It is almost too loud for my liking, but I'll deal with it for now. And actually I painted the sawblades myself. Took about 5 hours because there was some pretty good road rash, and i think they turned out a heck of a lot better than they looked before. And I'm about 50 miles south of Chicago.

Re: My new Prelude!

I live in Beecher.. which is a little south of chicago heights, but i go to school down in bourbonnais, so that's where I am at currently. My brother lives up in Park Forest. He just bought a 4th gen h22 turbo. It has very minor honda rust on the quarters, and a little on the nose of the hood. But I can deal with it for now..

Where you at uraverticalsmile?

Re: My new Prelude!

Tail Lights looked smoked or something or other. Really looks cool with the black.

Nice Lude! I would have gotten a black one too but they really have a bad rep around here, so I got a silver SH haha.

Re: My new Prelude!

Yea, I smoked them myself, but I didnt want to fully black out the tails. I also hate they look flat black.. so i put about 3 coats of clear on them as well to shine them up. I think it turned out pretty nice.

Why do black preludes have a bad rep here??
