View Full Version : New Prelude Pics

06-11-2004, 05:33 PM
Hey folks, well it was such a beautiful day out today I had to go for a cruise. I also cleaned out my prelude (which the previous owner never did) cause it was very very dirty. I also put in my single Sony sub and Kenwood deck.

THe body: please note this is a $600 car. The body and paint is HORRIBLE i know. Im going to remove that bumper strip and eventually get a full paint job.

Questions? COmments? Please reply!

looks good to me!

06-11-2004, 06:05 PM
me too! cept the brown interior

06-11-2004, 06:26 PM
yea the brown looks really odd in the car, I swore they had a gray interior with black.

06-11-2004, 06:50 PM
hey are those OEM foglights...those are the style I have lookin for,there yellow right?

06-11-2004, 06:51 PM
orangish-yellow, yes. The pasanger side lense is shattered but the housing is still fine.

06-11-2004, 08:19 PM
nice lude dude, are you the guy who was asking if you should let your rents drive it while you were away?

06-11-2004, 08:21 PM
hmm i dont think that was me. ALthough my old man said he wants to take it to work a couple days a week. hehe that old fart still likes light nimble cars w/ 5spd

as for the interior, i really really want to paint it. possible black? i've seen a white interior..and although bright, it looked nice. what do you folks think about what colour? mabe a duo-tone black w/red accents? or White w/ Blue or Black w/ Silver?

get that pile off of 3geez :p

anyways, i think they look good and all, but around here, they cost as much as a used 4th gen, or if you're lucky, a used 5th gen

yeah, sucks that my POS beater is worth $1500 KBB

06-11-2004, 10:23 PM
it does.

06-11-2004, 10:31 PM
i think your being too hard on that car because it really looks good. looks pretty much like you got a hell of a car for $600 cdn. i've never seen the tan interior before, but now i know why people always wanna change it. not too bad. are you going to spruce up the interior? i have those same fog lights in my garage. i was going to rebuild them by taking the glass lense off and cleaning the inside and repainting them. i will probley do that soon. only thing with mine, the yellow filter inside broke. i'd probley go with 100 watt bulbs in em if i have something to put them on. i already have lights on the 3gee.

06-12-2004, 01:58 PM
yea man, its a nice car IMO, reminds me of 88lxi68's 3g, and im sure its been asked befor, but does any modification need to be done to put that hood on a 3g?

06-12-2004, 05:05 PM
uhh yeah, it not nearly the same hood! much wider and shorter! i think a g2 lude hood could work MAYBE

06-12-2004, 05:46 PM
That's really clean looking from those pics.
Any rust?
Looks sweet to me.

06-12-2004, 08:31 PM
oh heeeelll yeah. THe rear fenders were completely gone. I rebuilt them with fibreglass resign, a little bondo and some gavly' sheet metal. It would look good except that I did a couple things wrong. I eye-balled the fender shape so thats off, and I also wasn't able to effectivly finish off the spot puddy so you can see the low and high spots when close up. I'll try and get some fender shots and you'll know what I mean. The sub frame is solid, no rust...uhh mm. oh. the trunk lid is starting to rust so i may just rip another one from the yard and paint it to match. Other than that no rust.

06-12-2004, 08:50 PM
yep, that lude looks good. sometimes i make double-takes on those cars as much as i do at 3geez (and chicks) ;)

06-12-2004, 09:11 PM
who moved this thread damnit :mad:


06-12-2004, 09:17 PM
What about the front fenders? Do you think they will fit on a 3gee acord?

06-12-2004, 09:41 PM
o snap i hadnt commented? damn thought i did

like everyone else said that lude is really sharp bro from what i can see it looks wicked nice man does that have the 4ws option?

06-12-2004, 11:20 PM
pretty sweet lude for 600 bucks!

No 4ws. Im curious to see how such a setup would work but its just one less thing to go wrong in my books. And ya, who moved this thread? Its not accord pics but thread rules said it was ok?

06-13-2004, 07:28 AM
Sorry about that... I moved it back. Wasn't thinking I guess. :uh:

06-13-2004, 07:47 AM
hehe Not that i mind or anything, I just wanted to be sure i didnt break any rules cause then i'd have to :pc: for my nub-i-ness

06-13-2004, 10:04 AM
looks good to me

06-13-2004, 08:56 PM
nice man! how much more is your insurance than on a 3G?

06-13-2004, 09:16 PM
Not much more. I just turned 21 so its slowly coming down. I pay 3700/year wich is 200 more than the accord. Insurance around here is a big dry anal raping even though i have no tickets or claims. The companies are criminals, plain n' simple.

06-13-2004, 09:19 PM
HOOOOLLLLY SHIT BATMAN! That's a hell of a lot of money man... I pay 1200/ year.... I couldn't imagine paying 3 times that... Crazy. Is it like that everywhere in CDN?

06-13-2004, 09:33 PM
Nope, just this wacky province. I hear that Alberta has publicized auto inssurance and on avg people pay 1800-2000CAD that'd be sweet. This province went to hell and it hasn't gotten any better since the Librals came into power :mad:

vote green party WOOT

Update: I fixed a gas leak around the pump. I had to run new freakin gas line :-S that sucked.

Anyway, here is a new pic. I cleaned all the intake pieces cause they were caked white with dirt n' shit. I scrubed it with a soapy sponge and used some wet n' black tire shine stuff. It turned out really nice.

06-14-2004, 10:11 AM
drive with no insurance :D

06-14-2004, 10:19 AM
Over all I think you got a good deal on a nice looking lude :rockon: . I really want one of these cars. They are hard to find around here.

06-25-2004, 08:30 AM
new update!

I've decided to change the interior colour to black. For the hard plastics im using krylon fusion. IMO it doesn't look fake at all. For the vinyl im using this "U-fix-it" name brand vinyl paint and so far it seems to be working very well.

EDIT: the carpet is pretty beat up so im debating weather or not to just buy a new one online. THey sell for about $190. Im going to try and find black seats from the j/y but i suspect they will be in disrepair so i may just recover these ones.

06-25-2004, 08:33 AM
nice.... it'll look 10 times better with no brown

06-25-2004, 08:51 AM
