Hey guys!
I'm new to the site so please bare with me, haha.

But anyways I am sure glad I found this place, I love my prelude and its good to get in touch with other prelude enthusiasts!

I bought most of my car the way it is, only parts I really added were the air intake and rims. My favourite part of the car is definitely the paint, orange and green 2 tone pearl. Right now my car is sheltered for the winter so I haven't got many pics. Spring time I will take more and I'm hoping you guys could tell me some parts I may have on the engine because I'm just not 100% sure whats together...yeah I'm definitely a newbie at this stuff! But anyways heres some pics, hope you guys like it!

i like the color, never seen orange on a lude, your taillights will get foggy if it rains, moisture sticks in those ( i got the same ones, they suck, i hate them, im switchin my lights back to stock ). Clean lude man

I actually like the paint, didn't think I would. I'd say, get some cleared stock tails; looks better imho!

Re: :::dlprelude::: 1997 Honda Prelude (Base)

Thanks guys, and I hear you on the tail lights, any ideas where I can get those stock clear ones?
The headlights work really good I'd have to say, at night it really illuminates my surroundings, but for some reason a lot of people like to flash their lights at me thinking I have my high beams on haha. Oh well, I love them so they are staying!
And as for for future investments, I would like to get some coilovers on it, maybe new rims or paint them, definitely get some new taillights, and thats all I can think of for now. I'm really looking into switching lots of stuff on this car so if you guys have any ideas please do share!!
Oh yeah and I'm going to sell the stereo system most likely come spring time, they are cool but the rumbling gets annoying haha.

Re: :::dlprelude::: 1997 Honda Prelude (Base)

Check junk yards and such for the stock tails, you might get lucky. Or possibly some other 'lude owners in your area have extras or maybe want to trade you for yours.

And the reason people keep flashing their lights at you at night is probably because the cutoff isn't good on those lights. Like someone said before, save up some money and get the Depo black housing heads and get them retrofitted.
