my 01 preludes progress thread. from nothing to something.

Hey everyone so Im pretty new on here so here is a little history on my car.

I bought her back in 2006 with 65k on it for $6500.

the car came with a few sweet mods already on it, but it also came with a few not so sweet mods. the good ones included an AEM V2 Intake and a aftermarket header, and also the rear keyhole was shaved off the trunk. the bad ones where pretty noticeable lol...a fiberglass hood with like cutouts in it, and a crazy fat can dual exhaust:




as you can from the previous picture the exhaust was the first thing i switched out. I went with a no name tip with custom 2 1/4 piping with no resonator:


eventually I would find a kid in another state who wanted my hood, his car was silver, so we met up and swapped hood, even trade and now this was my car:




so next i focused on the engine bay. the way i bought the car it was hurting under the hood. so i swapped out everything, new cap and rotor, plugs, and ngk wires, cleaned it up quite a bit.

before:


after:


after i did that i knew next i had to work on the interior a bit....

the car came with stock cloth seats so i bought the complete leather interior (front and rear seats) on ebay, and a leather shift knob


I also added a JVC head unit, but that would be changed as the years went on.


the year 2007 begins in post 2.

Re: my 01 preludes progress thread. from nothing to something.

in 2007 my main priority was lowering the car. I began researching different suspension options like crazy. I was considering a spring/strut combo, but then I discovered the world of coilover kits hehe. So i choose the Tein Basic Coilover kit and purchased and installed it in June 2007.



the car was still missing something though so the next day I bought rsx type s wheels.



It still wasnt complete in my eyes, it needed so much more work.

I picked up some light covers and rocked these for like a week before i got sick of it:


then after the summer i would change my exhaust again bc it was too loud, i went with a vibrant resonator and muffler:

this exhaust is still on my car.


i still was not happy with the car, someone had hit my lassenger side fender so i put a new one on it but it was a different shade of silver, the car was definetly in an accident before i bought it as many body parts where not lined up good and the headlights where all yellow. So I left it as is for winter 2007 but once spring time came it was time to make moves.

2008 begins.....

Re: my 01 preludes progress thread. from nothing to something.

Thanks to Craigslist i found a wings west lip kit in albany for the bargain price of $300 for the full kit. So i went and picked that up, here is a test fit picture:



next i bought these:



in may 2008 I enlisted the help of Carmel Autobody in Carmel, NY to do my car.

They would fix all dings and dents, line up the body perfectly, install the kit and lights, and re paint the car, i was siked.

anyways they had my car for about 35 days, longest days of my life lol.









finished product and how the car sits now:


After that I put in this pioneer head unit:


system:

(exhaust burned the lip, ill get it fixed some day)




and my car today with the winter wheels on:


so yeah thanks for checking this out, my future plans include a 5 speed swap :)
motor as it is today:



now of course theres more things done to my car, like when it was time to change the brakes i went with a nice upgrade to brembo rotors and ebc pads....upgraded all the lighting as well and now i have nice gorilla lugnuts.

Re: my 01 preludes progress thread. from nothing to something.

The fiberglass hood doesn't look bad... but it's still fiberglass. :/
I lol'ed at original exhaust. Good you got that off there.
I've always liked your style with the car though. Simple and sweet.
