First shots of the Prelude

Well I've been saying I'd post pictures of the 'lude, so here they are. Nothing special. Crappy Cybershot with like an 8 second shutter lag, so pics might be a bit blurry.

I love White 5th Gens.

Yeah, I'm the third owner of the car. The girl who owned it before me really didn't take care of it like she should have. Nothing more than the usual oil changes etc. The car looked like it had not been washed in ages. I still haven't cleaned the windows or wheels at all. Just the body. And all that was was a quick rubdown to get all the stuck-on built-up crap off of the car, especially around the front bumper and lower parts of the side.

Also, I learned to never go to one of those all-night car wash bays that gives you a pressure sprayed and "foaming-brush". Didn't do anything but take a layer of dirt off from when it rained.

Nothing beats old-fashioned elbow grease. The best part is that I got a huge bottle of car wash stuff for like 3 bucks. I do look forward to waxing her, but I am a little discouraged because either there is crap under the clearcoat or the car just stayed so dirty for so long that there is crap embedded in the paint. Either way it erks me.

There are some engine bay pics up in this post.

http://www.preludezone.com/showthrea...059#post121059

There seem to be quite a few unidentified mods on my car. I do know that I have Tokico Illumina adjustable gas shocks on the rear tires and front and rear upper strut bars/braces. There might be a bit more in the way of suspension but I'm waiting until I can have her looked at by some of my mechanic friends.

Yeah, I really want some nice rims, but I'm not in the market to spend that much cash on looks just yet. Those rims are pretty nice btw. I like the "5 spoke" rims myself, I guess because they give a slightly more masculine presence.

I was actually thinking the same thing. I've never even thought that before.

Those tail lights remind me of that car in GTA San Andreas. Anybody know what I'm talkin about? The one that looks like a 550 Maranello?
