I'm looking forward to being a part of this group, although I wonder if I have missed the boat. There's not many new posts so I hope some of you are still active.

Mine is a base model 1981. It's blue with tan interior. I purchased it about a week ago and I couldn't be more excited. But this isn't my first 1981 Prelude. I had one when I was 16 as my first car... 26 years ago... So I feel this is a little extra special to me.

The highlights of advertisement for the car when I bought it stated:
• Rare one owner 52k miles Honda Prelude, 5 speed... unique factory, radio delete, no factory a/c.
• Older gentleman purchased new in '81 here in town, this car has not seen 75mph... runs perfect and quiet... no mechanical issues.
• Owner had company car and only drove on weekends.

I was so excited, I bought it pretty much site unseen.

First things on my list I'd like to add/update on this car:
• Decent seat covers
• add A/C... please say this is possible. My wife and kids would greatly appreciate this.
• install Radio/speakers
• 15" Rims/Tires
• Headlights - sooo, so dim

Eventual list of items:
• New Paint
• Fender Mirrors(?)... On the fence with this, so let's talk!
• Suspension
• Brakes

All these things I want to do I'm having to research, so please if you have any suggestions from good seat covers to brakes... I'd so appreciate it. This forum has helped a lot so far.

I'm not mechanically inclined so much. I replaced a few things on my original Prelude, so I'm looking forward to doing more myself.
