    prelude project

    hey guys,

    I've been building this car for over 4 years now. The majority of the work was done by me bar a few things like paint.
    Its pretty much complete but I just like changing things lol

    I completely stripped the car back to bare metal, had all the rust professionally repaired, I also had the side moulds deleted. I changed the front bar to 1st gen teg bar... something different.

    I changed the interior colour from blue to black, door trims, dash, centre console in gloss black roof lining and pillar trims are in satin black. I added a couple of black bucket seats and speco oil and boost pressure gauges too. I also used black seat belts, door pockets and carpet from my ba1 spare parts car. unfortunately I have no pics of the interior
