doing up prelude

Hey guys. I have had a 92 prelude for about 4 months now. Got it new spark plugs, air filter, and got enigine oil and oil filter changed and all that stuff. I am wanting to do it up now but dont know where to start. It has a pretty bad paint job from previous owner aswell. Any ideas where to start? wanting it to go fast, look fast and look sexy :)

Re: doing up prelude

Paint, rims, maybe some window tint if you are into that. If you have the money to spend maybe do a slight drop. Don't slam it to the ground, its impractical and honestly looks ghetto imo... I don't see any need for a body kit or anything, ludes look good as they are. After that stuff, maybe the exhaust then start working on the interior if it's not already in good shape

Re: doing up prelude

Hit up a junkyard, look for a 94/95 Accord and grab the front and rear lip off it. Dirt cheap and great fitment.

Just look through various build/member ride threads and see for yourself what you like/dislike.

Re: doing up prelude

Grab ya all the moldings, trim, door handles, and stuff like that at the junkyard as those items are getting scarce. Then if/when you do a paintjob you'll have better gaskets etc everywhere and won't scratch the paint replacing them later.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
