Hi Alchemy, nice work you're doing with that Prelude, it really deserves it. Looking good so far, keep posting pics!
Looking forward to see how it will look lowered, maybe someday I'll do that to mine, but with Watanabe RS rims (or something similar).
I have to take care of some rust on mine, so I'll be following your footsteps soon. Did you have to remove the windshield completely?

Cheers! The windshield was not removed this time just the trim that goes around the edge was removed.
Good choice of wheels I like them as well but couldn't find any here in the UK so I went with what I could get.

Your prelude is looking awesome man! :) trying not to be rude now, but i kinda wondered if you might want to sell your rubber/chrome side trim? :roll: I cant seem to find any side trim or parts anywhere, might be because im new to this Honda/Prelude thing :|

Cheers! Re. Trims, No harm in asking, right. The reason they are not on the car is because they were not great to start with, a couple of endcaps missing and a screw had been put through a part to secure it to the car. Going to keep them and look into getting them repaired.

That is the worse thing about the SN is trying to source parts, keep looking.

I saw your question on your own page and answered it there but in case you miss it, here is the info

New Lowered King Springs Fitted - 4 coils; 2 front + 2 rear 30-35mm drop.
New Rota Beat Alloy Wheels - Black/Polished Lip, 15"x 7", ET40, 4X100.
New Nankang Tyres - NS-2, 195/50/15.

Hope that helps.

Had to get a new windscreen fitted, the previous one got damaged, had to wait nearly 4 months for a new screen to be manufactured, they are not readily available here in the UK so one was made (at great cost I believe) by Pilkington Glass. It was all done through my insurance so the cost to me was minimal, thankfully. Ignore the date stamp on the pictures.

Great day here in sunny Glasgow and had a day off work so took the old girl out for a drive around the Ayrshire Coast.

Absolutely beautiful ride. Great job keeping her looking fresh. She is so well taken care of, how often do you take it out?
