yes anything can be done but the question is how far you want to go. Why you want a full conversion?
this was just a quick Google search
Hood-$420
http://www.statracing.com/bodykits/h...elude_hood.asp
trunk-$500
http://www.raceinspired.com/ps-1646-...iliateid=10050
Side Skirts-$544
http://www.raceinspired.com/p-1628-s...iliateid=10065
and my quess would be a set of fenders would run about $400-$500

never understood this, why a whole car in carbon fiber? the day someone dings your door in a lot, its no longer a 70 dollar paint touch up, its a 500 dollar door. and just do an interior/AC/comfort strip and take a few hundred off

it all depends how you want to shed the weight, some people like AC and are willing to pay for it...I want a nice sound system so I compensate by buying a carbon fiber hood / trunk and removing my back seats / spare tire

really having a complete carbon fiber car is impractical unless it's a full race / show thing

yeah esp since none of it will be covered by any kind of insurance - IMHO id say spend the money yove saved for this + the price you could sell your prelude for a really nice car, like an S2K or Cobra or something

yeah i know i know but the same could be said for the bodys kits we all put on our cars u get in an accident and ur ****ing out of hundreds or even thousands the reason i want to go carbon is the weight reduction its going to be rediculous how much faster the prelude will go without all that heavy metal on it you know? since thats one of the preludes main problems in the 1st place is weight i thought id shave off that problem what do u guys think?

if you want weight reduction buy a hatch.

full carbon body, even carbon fenders and doors is very dangerous for daily driving.

spend your money on power upgrades rather than put your saftey at risk.

No offense but if car wasnt a safe car it wouldn't pass all the requirements to be put into production.

But anything can be made into CF just talk to someone who does that kind of work and for the right price ti will happen!

For ever 100 lbs u gain about 10th of a second on ur 1/4 mile from what i been told. It will cost well over $5,000 to do it all and gain what 1/2 a second. If all u do is race ya that a that a lot but u can take that money put it in to the engine and will get the same results and be a lot better off in the end. Get a good built N/A or even turbo engine for that money.

This all may be true but for 5K you plan on spending for the carbon fiber body (which wont happen, the hood and trunk alone are like 1200 and those are the cheapest parts), you could use that 8K (<more reasonable estimate) and make a viciously fast prelude, just buy a used engine that someone has rebuilt and built, like off hondamarketplace.com and get a mean ass turbo, and you can do work on those evos and srt4s and everything else and still have 10K for whatever else. i mean 4Gs for a mean turbo set up, spend 1K-2K on visuals (i can hook you up through my business) and now you have a good looking car thats fast as ****.
if you start this carbon fiber build, you're gonna drop a few Gs on the hood trunk fenders, and then youre gonna realize you cant find the doors, and if you do, you sure as hell wont be able to find the entire piece that is the roof down the back pillar. and then youre gonna have a half carbon-fiber/half paint car and be like "**** now what" (that looks terrible btw, saw an s2k who had the same ambition but couldnt find doors or a hardtop in CF, looked mad ****ty). and i know you think you'll keep the prelude forever (i guarantee you wont), but when you inevitably sell it you will get pennys on the dollar of your investment back.

please, for the sake of your own tears and dollars, dont do it

Now i could be wrong i been up all night stressed and **** so my math i bet is way off so someone pleas correct me. I would do a nice CF hood trunk side skirt and lip kit and then the put that 10k in the engine a you will have a killer car and i think most ppl would be impressed with a nice engine then a cf car. Im all about lude respect(who get that song in there hear when they type respect?) but i come down to more back for the buck to me.

and no matter how much you spend lightening the car, and how much you spend on its engine, its still a front wheel drive car. i dont understand the concept of building them with 1000s of dollars.

The love homie, and so what of its a front wheel drive. Man the stuff ive seen makes me beleive it doesnt even matter. ive seen preludes w/ good suspention match up to an s2k on the track and I know everybody has seen civics doing less than 10 seconds in a 1/4 mile. To me it doesnt even matter what the car is. If you have enough love to it, with the money you can build anything.

agreed^
but, when i say vs. a rear wheel drive im referencing mustang GTs and cobras and camaros, not s2ks. and a 10 second civic is getting close to 10000 .

um yeah... dont do it. if you can even find the cf doors they're around 2 grand! i would just get a cf hood, trunk, and lip kit. and if you really love cf try to find out where/how to get a cf engine bay.

i think front wheel drive cars are severely under rated...look at the new civic type r: a FWD / 4 door that meets the r34's lap times...forget what you watched on initial d...fwd cars can be fast

Hey look, if you wanna strip the thing down to the chassis and rebuild it out of aluminum cans is fine with me. Like everyone else is saying, with enough money anything is possible. Personally, I like seeing what other people can create and design. With all the hondas on the streets now days its hard to find one thats unique. And if you can afford this type of build then I say go for it. As fas as saftey is concerned, if your street racing doing 120mph, it doesn't matter if your car is made completely outta steel your still coming out of a wreck lookin like a rag doll. So props to you man for wanting to up the lude's street cred.
