While I'm waiting for the car to come back from the shop, thought I would clean up some floor mats that were in the boot of the car when I bought it, they have been in the garage for 2 years now, turns out I think they are original Honda Access rubber mats, part no. 06712 69210, they have got the little Honda Access logo in the bottom corner of each mat.

Not sure if they are a complete set or made up of 2 sets because the front HONDA log is red while the back ones are white, not sure, anyway I quite like them now, there is a couple of bits of rubber missing here and there but pretty good overall, top left has come up well after a good scrub.

Pretty mats these are! I will look for something similar when the time's ripe for that part of the job.

Look to be the same cutout as my XR mats. From what I can tell mine has the little "Honda Access" logo underneath of the mats but no #. Here's mine for comparison, though yours are in a lot better shape mate.

Very nice! Are they from when the car was in Japan, or did you get them recently? I would of preferred them to the rubber ones I've got. Seen some other designs as well, must have done quite a range.

Honda like their stripes, don't they.

It's from my japanese XR version. The US seemed to have not gotten as many options but only a carpeted plain version. I completely agree, the rubber mats are much more reliable and stay in place than the carpeted mats. But for the looks the carpeted mats win and your right, Honda sure loved their stripes!

Here are red accessory mats from an '82 xxr in japan.

Nah, there's nothing weird on here concerning our addiction. :lol:

I have yet to see a pair of these in the US. Maybe not alot of people ordered them from the dealership?

Just a wee picture of my car taken in the grounds of Bothwell Castle, while I was out with my dog Monty.

Monty!!!

Bothwell Castle, I live about a mile away from this amazing castle, sits on a hill overlooking the River Clyde, dates from 1300s. The grounds and the surrounding woodland are great for walking the dog

:o Just beautiful Alchemy, just crazy beautiful. The scenery and landmarks you have in your country astound me more and more everytime I see something new. We have mountains here in the US........ :lol: and trees. The paint on your car stands out and shines, it looks factory mint!

Cheers Nathan.

There is nothing wrong with a good mountain :lol: we have a few of them over here as well. We are very spoiled though with this kind of stuff, quite an amazing story if you dig a bit deeper into the Castles history.

The car could do with a wash, especially the wheels, but thought it looked good sitting in the sun.

Long overdue update, not much happened after the Summer then the car was stored away for the Winter. Brought back out last week to get it's yearly M.O.T. done, took it to my usual mechanic for a service and any work that was needing done. The front wiper springs needed adjusted, one of the rear brakes had seized and the handbrake needed adjusting, not too bad, driving really well.

Here are a couple of pics taken on a rare sunny day in February.

Had the day off work so took the Prelude for a wee blast round the Borders. Car is driving really well, bodywork needs a bit of TLC, hopefully getting that sorted soon. Here is a picture sitting by The Loch of the Lowes near Moffat.

Finally got around to getting the Prelude in the body shop to get some work done. The back wheel arch especially was getting really bad and something had to be done to stop it getting worse. The front offside wing was needing reshaped as well, apart from that it was a lot of niggly little things that just weren't right.

Once the body work is done it will get a full respray in the original Canyon Gold, the grill, bumpers and mirrors are all being done in black. The side rubber/chrome trim is being removed (not good condition) and the holes welded up and will either be replaced with a chrome strip or left blank, not sure at the moment.

After that it is getting lowered by 35mm on new King Springs I got sent over from Australia, then a new set of Rota Beat alloys will be fitted. Really liked the Rota wheels, they are basically a copy of the Mugen CF-48 wheels from the 80's, think they will look great on the Prelude.

Will post more pictures as the work progresses.

Went to the body shop today. Paint done! Just trim to be painted then added. One new wheel fitted for effect, still to be lowered.

Here is the Prelude as she stands right now
